With deepest regrets…...

Hello fellow fans, It is with great regret that we announce that Anime South 2015 is officially cancelled. The event will not take place this year. We apologize to our friends and partners in the fandom community that were looking forward to attending — so were we! For those of you that are wondering why we are canceling, the short version of the answer is that we ran out of money, because conventions are really expensive. The long version of the answer is that we raaaaaaaan ouuuuuuut of moooooooneeeeeey, beeeeccaaaaa- OK, the longer answer for real: Anime South is not run by a giant corporation with a Scrooge McDuck vault full of money. It’s run by a bunch of average anime fans of average financial means. If at-the-door ticket sales were good we might have broken even, but due to the fact that we were going to hold the event at a new venue, after a year’s hiatus, with several new senior staff members, we couldn’t be sure we would sell enough admissions at the door to to cover all of our costs.

Since we weren’t certain that we could fulfill our financial obligations to our partners, vendors, venue and guests, the decision was made by...

An apology from the Anime South staff...

Anime South has regrettably withdrawn invitations to several well-known and highly respected individuals within the cosplay community. Though it would be preferable to honor these unauthorized invitations, Anime South is financially unable to commit. Though these invitations were unsanctioned by Anime South management, we realize that through their withdrawal we are damaging relationships and trust within the community. We have an enormous professional desire to welcome these individuals as guests, however it is not economically feasible at this time. We ask for your understanding in this unfortunate and difficult matter. We hope that you will continue to support and encourage these exceptionally talented cosplayers. . We look forward to the growth of Anime South and hope to properly welcome anyone we have had to disinvite as highlighted guests in the...
