FAN EXPO Canada is the largest comics, sci-fi, horror, anime, and gaming event in Canada. The show began as a humble comic book convention before transforming into a large-scale multi-day event that draws in thousands of people from around the world.
There are plenty of events at this year’s FAN EXPO, especially since the world is returning to normal after the global pandemic. Here are all the events at FAN EXPO Canada: Limited Edition:
For those who are fans of either anime or video games, FAN EXPO has got you covered. This year, there will be several voice actors from both fandoms.
Would you like to know all about the voice behind everyone’s favourite plumber, Mario? Or the voice behind everyone’s favourite Spartan, Masterchief? If you’re a fan of My Hero Academia, All Might’s voice might sound familiar to you and if you like RWBY, the entire cast is coming. This is just a sample platter of the guests at FAN EXPO this year. You can check out the full list here.
Hololive En will be making an appearance, with Gawr Gura, Amelia Watson and Ninomae Ina’nis all being special guests of the event. The three Vtubers are live-streaming a panel exclusively for convention attendees. Moreover, the panel is interactive, so the audience will be joining in the fun as well.
A lot has happened over the last few years since the great Vtuber boom. Thanks to the success of their Japanese branch, Cover Corp was able to expand its operations into the anglosphere. There have been many good times and a few bad times, but either way, the trio of idols will have a lot to talk about.
The Collectibles Market
Do you own any collectibles? They can be comic books, Yu-Gi-Oh cards, Pokémon cards or even Bakugans. Maybe you passed the age of playing with them and your collection is just picking up dust somewhere in your closet.
If that speaks to you, Larry Hancock, author of The Silent Invasion, has some advice for you. You may not know it yet, but you’re possibly sitting on a large pile of cash. There are collectors out there who would sell their arms to get a hold of what you have. This is the ultimate guide to how one man’s trash can be another man’s treasure.
For fans of tabletop and anime, it might interest you that Twitch streamer, Bee Zelda, is a FAN EXPO guest. Bee is behind Tabletop Otaku, an initiative to connect tabletop fans with Japanese pop-culture amateurs. As part of this appearance, the Twitch streamer has a few board games, CCGs, and more to recommend for both fandoms.
Every convention, there are dozens of retailers, exhibitors and talented artists on artist alley. You may not know them by name, but you also might recognise their art or their brand. Some have thousands of followers on social media while others are still waiting for their big break. What is gratifying about walking around all the different booths is that you will never really know who you will find.
