FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Anime USA, a three-day convention in Washington, DC celebrating Japanese animation, art, culture, history, and fashion, is pleased to announce that renowned costume historian Kass McGann will be a guest lecturer at their 2014 event.
Anime USA’s mission is to promote and educate the public about Japanese arts and popular culture. Since its inception, Anime USA has been a convention of Otaku, by Otaku, for Otaku. Anime USA is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit managed solely by a staff of volunteers.
At its heart, Anime USA seeks to discuss and promote anime; other associated arts such as storytelling, costuming, and voice acting; and Japanese culture at large.
