Penn State Anime Organization To Host Virtual Convention April 10-11

The Penn State Anime Organization (PSAO) will host its 15th annual “Setsucon” convention this weekend.

The annual event will be held online this year and “celebrate anime, gaming, and cosplay.” Traditionally, the event would have been held in Altoona back in January. But due to the coronavirus pandemic, the event has been moved online on a different date.

Setsucon will still have the same events that would happen at an in-person convention, including panels with voice actors, video game tournaments, live music, and more. Notably, Sarah Natochenny, best known as the voice behind “Pokémon” star Ash Ketchum, will be featured at the conference.

The convention seeks “to celebrate all things anime, manga, gaming, cosplay, and Japanese culture.”

The convention started in 2007 in State College and moved to Altoona in 2018 as it continued growing. Since its founding, Setsucon has grown into one of the largest annual anime conventions in Pennsylvania and is expecting 3,000 to 5,000 viewings throughout the weekend.

Setsucon will be streamed on Twitch for folks at home to tune in. More information about the convention can be found here.
