Catch the Wave

Anime USA returns to the nation’s capital for a special holiday-themed convention, arriving at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park Hotel on December 8-10, 2017. Convention organizers are titling this year’s show “The Christmas Special” due to its unusual proximity to the holidays this year – past shows have generally taken place in October.

Guests this year include voice actors Chris Patton (Fullmetal Alchemist), Leah Clark (KanColle), Chris Cason (Dragonball Z), Lisle Wilkerson (Virtua Fighter), Oscar Seung (Yuri!! On Ice), and Davis Trosko (Hetalia); musical guests Triforce Quartet and Edo Bushido; and educational guests Robert V. Aldrich, Sarah Hodge-Wetherbe, Briana Lawrence, and Jessica Walsh; among others.

Programming at the show includes panels, workshops, cosplay events, the maid café and host club, and karaoke, among various other things to do at the show. There will also be a dealers room and artist alley for any and all shopping needs. Details about the show, including registration and hotel information, can be found online.
