Opening Ceremonies is a star-studded official kick-off to the convention. You'll be introduced to our special guests for this year, learn more about events, and there an occassional bit of wacky humor. This is a great chance to get into the convention mindset for the coming days ahead.
You can meet the guests of Anime Oasis and get their autographs. We do this a little differently than other conventions. Instead of lining up to meet one guest, everyone gets into a long line and meets all of the guests. We have our guests because they are great people. You can get the autograph you wanted and learn more about the other personalities that make Anime Oasis so amazing.
