November 2009 Events: Update #1 [Kinda…]

Interesting bit of news, concerning the 31st of October (which is um… today in fact) and the 1st of November: Salonika’s PHILOXENIA Expo, in which the Japanese Embassy of Greece participates, will feature a presentation on manga, anime and cosplay culture, both on Saturday and Sunday, for 1 hour each. Episodes of well-known anime will be on display, while people will be informed both on the spot and via a brochure provided at the stand (Kiosque 15 – Stand 17).

The official program is as follows:

Saturday, October 31st

13:00-13:30 IAIDO
15:00-16:00 ANIME & COSPLAY

Sunday, November 1st

13:00-13:30 KENDO
15:00-16:00 ANIME & COSPLAY
