Panel: An introduction to anime and manga
Anime and manga are full of terms that seem strange to many outside Japan. We will find out the difference between anime and manga – no, they are not the same – and the difference between kawaii and kowai. And who knows: maybe we’ll get some Pocky.

Panel: Crafting your fandom
From building a spaceship wardrobe to knitting the Doctor’s scarf, baking the Death Star, or putting their travel cards into wands, fans have ever more inventive ways to express their love, enthusiasm, and fandom through arts and crafts. Our panelists will share their love of fandom crafting from what they do to how they do, and discuss why we all do it.
