SUNNYCON ANIME EXPO
JUNE 22nd - 24th 2018 COUNTDOWN:
We will be updating all events, panels and talks in the coming weeks and in the build up to SunnyCon Anime Expo 2018.
We are always open to suggestions from experts and fans alike to give our event a diverse and varied schedule where attendees can talk and share their passions with their peers.
Panels will be added below very soon. You can watch panels from 2017 event over on our YouTube
Coming to SunnyCon Anime Expo 2018 we have the reincarnation of a British classic. Updated for the modern era we have ditched the borderline racism and kept the daft bets and added our special Geordie twist.
We will pick 4 audience members to go head to head in a battle of wits and dumb luck as stupidity and betting collide once more.

ATTACK ON TITAN - BLIND READING
Three impressionists read through a random episode of Attack of Titan with impressions assigned to different roles, for example, Donald Duck as Eren Jaeger or Dr. Claw as Mikasa. The reading is split up into three acts, where the roles are re-assigned to keep things fresh and entertaining. The roles are decided by the audience by giving them a choice of three impressions, example: "For Mikasa; Woody Woodpecker, Bayonetta or Raven from Teen Titans." we will ask audience members who have their hand up and try to make sure everybody gets a chance to choose a role. Of course, this will be explained to the audience once the panel starts.
