If you’re a fan of J-Pop and G-Pop (Garrett Popcorn, that is), you may want to check out Anime Festival Asia 2011 this weekend. The 4th year brings together some of the most influential speakers, artists, and anime shows in Japanese popular culture. The event schedule is packed with artists such as LiSA, May’n, and FLOW, as well as special screenings of Gundam, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, and more. Don’t miss voice actress Chiwa Saitou, producer Atsuhiro Iwakami, and director Tatsuyuki Nagai. As an extra bonus, all three nights wrap up with an I Love Anisong concert marathon.
You’ll need to eat well to last a 3-day festival of shows and music. Consider Garrett Popcorn Shops® at CityLink Mall for pre-festival snacks. CaramelCrisp®, CheeseCorn™, and The Chicago Mix are all good options to fuel you through days of anime and music.
Enjoy your feast of J-Pop with G-Pop!
