Umicon Daytona is back for its second year of getting the anime community together. If you like anime, video games and other geek culture activities, then this surf side convention is for you! Read more
Hey and welcome to a new series. I’ll be sharing my experiences of conventions during 2013 as well as offering some behind the scenes information about the convention scene in FL. At times, there’ll be some mature content. Be advised.
Thanks in advance for the time and enjoy!
The Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami of 2011 in Tohoku, Japan was one of the worst disasters in recorded history. In times of crisis, every person has a choice: every man for himself; or to be greater than that, and reach out to one’s neighbors. In the face of this unprecedented catastrophe, the people of Ishinomaki, the largest coastal city in Tohoku chose to pull together and help each other. People from all over Japan – and from all over the world – descended on the town to relieve suffering and help move the city and its people towards recovery. This is a movie about ordinary people doing extraordinary things. It is a tale of victims becoming volunteers, and volunteers becoming heroes. Pray for Japan’s message is one of compassion, selflessness and hope – an inspiration for our daily lives.
Director Stu Levy (Founder of Tokyopop) will be there for a Q&A session as well. If you haven’t seen the film, please take the time to check it out!
As 2013 begins, we at Orange Anime would like to wish each and every member a safe and healthy New Year.
We have been through a lot together this past year and we’d like to thank our dedicated members and staff for sticking through it with us.
In our efforts to bring excitement to the Florida convention circuit, we have included new panels with fresh content and we hope to see you at all of the conventions we attend. Keep an eye out on the conventions section on the forums to see where we’ll be next and get in on the appealing action that only Orange Anime can give you.
Happy New Year, Orange Anime!

Well the results are in and I have to say it wasn’t even close. The 4th person to be sat on the throne and receive a ‘Verbal Colonoscopy’ is Oshinoke. As per every Roast, the Roastee picks his who will become his Roasters.
Oshinoke Decided that he would select fellow Orange Anime members: Chaosmeika, FJ, Gizzy B, Lady Kana, Onizuka Chris, and Tsukasa to share their thoughts of Oshinoke and his accomplishments. More events to come!
Well, friends. We have had an eventful 9 years. However, the time has come for Orange Anime to turn 10 years old. On the weekend of October 19th, Orange Anime members from all across the state of Florida are going to meet in Orlando to celebrate Orange Anime’s 10th Birthday. To start the Anniversary off we are planning an outing to Halloween Horror Nights on Friday. This has been a staple of Anniversary past and we are keeping this tradition going.
This year Orange Anime will be staying at the Hawthorn Suites Universal (http://
Every once and a while, a person comes along that inspires us. Someone that lifts us up off of our feet and compels us to do great things and inspire people. Well, here at Orange Anime, that person doesn’t exist, so we’re going to roast the next person in line. This year, at Orange Anime’s 10th Anniversary, we’re going to assemble a team of roasters to commit verbable torture against one of our own..but who shall that be?
That’s for you to decide!
All you have to do is choose your top 3 members that you would like to see roasted. AlephZero, EmpressAuthor and FJ have already been roasted, so they aren’t to be picked, respectively.
