This weekend the CBLDF will be setting up at Anime Detour in Minneapolis, where we’ll be presenting a talk on manga censorship, as well as setting up a table to distribute literature and accept donations. I’ll be there representing the Fund, and hosting the panel, which is set to happen on Saturday morning at 10:30 AM. I’m very pleased to note that I’ll be joined by Ryan Matheson, who courageously spoke out for the first time about his legal ordeal in Canada earlier this month after we announced that all criminal charges against him had been dropped. I’ll also be joined on the panel by Greg Ayres and Studio OnY.
Please come by the dealers room and say hello. We’ll have a booth set up offering incentives including the “Manga Is Not A Crime” button and a raffle for signed items from Yoshitaka Amano, Camilla d’Errico and more!
Anime Detour starts on Friday, March 30 and runs through Sunday, April 2 at the Doubletree by Hilton in Bloomington, MN.
