The Arkansas Anime Festival, which bills itself as "Arkansas’ largest and longest-running Animé and Gaming Convention," is coming to the Clarion Hotel and Convention Center, in Bentonville, on Nov. 20-21.

Announced guests include voice actor Richard Epcar ("Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo," "Beetleborgs Metallix"), makeup special effects artist Eric Burton, voice actor Robert Axelrod ("Digimon"), and animation duo Samantha Inoue Harte ("Final Fantasy: Unlimited") and Dominic Vitucci.

If photos from festivals past are any indication, you're likely to see: Storm Troopers, ninjas, Asian school girls, Dr. Manhattan (?), gas-mask dancing, fire hair, super friends, furries and fashion shows.

We need a correspondent there. Anyone interested?

    Arkansas's jail populations grew more than all but one other state between 2006 and 2013 in terms of percentage. Among those in jails are a disproportionally high number of people with mental health and substance abuse disorders, and throughout the correction system, there is a dearth of treatment programs. Meanwhile, the state Parole Board is keeping more and more inmates in prison beyond the date they are eligible for parole.
