Spring Kraken Con 2015

, Sat., April 25, 10 a.m.-11 p.m. and Sun., April 26, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.

Spring Kraken Con 2015
Oakland may not be the biggest hub for anime fan culture, but that doesn’t mean that cosplay enthusiasts shouldn’t have their day — or weekend, rather. On April 25 and 26, the Oakland Convention Center (550 10th St.) will be invaded by Kraken Con, which features anime, manga, and video game subculture goodness. Started in 2013, Kraken Con may not be as massive as its other “con” counterparts, but it still offers a fully packed schedule of panels, guest appearances, contests and more. Some presentations come from an academic standpoint, such as “A Rainbow Dash of Personality Theories: From Hippocrates and Jung, to Avatar, Pokemon, and Little Ponies,” while others are more instructional, such as “Epic Resume Go!,” and “Cosplay Filmmaking 101.” Other programming includes “Magikarp: A History” and “Make Your Own Japanese Curry.” Between them all, expect dance lessons, gaming competitions, movie screenings, and tea-drinking sessions. It sounds like one of the homiest, least commercialized cons out there. Give it a shot before it gets too big. $30 all weekend
