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?
