    Have you heard of Anime Boston yet? Well, for those of you who haven’t, Anime Boston is the go-to convention for all the best anime merch and to see those work behind the character in the dubbed animes.

    Anime Boston is this weekend (April 19-21) at the Hynes Convention Center and the Sheraton Boston Hotel. Anime Boston has the anime merch you want in many different forms, like the ever-popular exhibition halls A and B, which has merchandise from all kinds of anime for everyone!

    Another exciting way to get personalized items is in the Artist Alley, which is for artists that share a love of anime as well. Selling their art for a very unique buy is just one of the many ways to have fun at Anime Boston.
