Well it looks like its that time again and of course i’m referring to MTAC or Middle Tennessee Anime Convention with the theme “In Love” starting next week. It appears that this year it is going to be hosted in murfreesboro at the Embassy Suites. Last year it was in downtown nashville and as my first convention, I did have a good time. I was really impressed by the number of cosplayers.
This year MTAC will be from April 18-20 beginning next Friday. Hopefully I will be able to make the convention on Saturday. There seems to be a lot of events going on including the cosplay competition, AMV contest, as well as a 90 minute movie called Forbidden Superhero, which i’ve heard about; a guy is given super powers by wearing womens’ underwear. And of course the infamous Ramen eating competition. This year they are having a Love Serenade final fantasy themed ball with people dressed in their best, cosplay or formal attire with a live symphony.
I really enjoyed myself the first time and hopefully I will be able to attain this year. Last time I just downloaded an app that was a guide for the events and even let you pick what you wanted to schedule and then alert you. It helped out but I still enjoyed roaming around between times checking everything out. I told myself if I come back again I would need to take more pictures and get more footage of the event, and hopefully i’ll also have some friends attended this time around.
If you’re going to be in the area why not check out the MTAC webpage, just google it. Because they are going to have plenty of panels and of course some guests.
