Ah February in Victoria – rain, the first flowers of spring and anime conventions! What anime convention? Why it’s Tsukino-Con 2011, Feb 25 to 27!
As per our annual tradition, LRR will be making an appearance at Tsukino-Con. Hosted at scenic—and sadly rabbit-free—UVIC, Tsukino-Con fills you with all the anime, cosplay, AMVs and panels you could possibly hope to handle in a single weekend.
Check out all the info and times, after the jump!
In addition to our customary panel, LRR will be providing some extra entertainment this year, so if you’re in town, or planning to be, you can see us in all our z-list internet celebrity glory as we host the following events:

Man Cooking: The Lardpocalypse

You know what’s manly? Diabetes! This desert will melt your teeth, gums, arteries, bowels and will to live with combination of lard, sugar and manliness.

It’s the customary LoadingReadyRun panel! You’ve seen us online and you’ve seen us playing Magic The Gathering downtown… now see us in person! We’ll show some neat, con exclusive videos and answer your questions, or die trying. (Death not guaranteed) followed immediately by…
Let’s Play with Graham & Paul
Saturday Feb 26 – 9:30 PM – 10:30 PM
Have you ever been playing a video game and thought, “Wow, this cutscene is terrible!” – never fear, professional game-makers-fun-of Graham and Paul are here to leap on that grenade for you. The creators of Unskippable riff on a game in person. Possibly foul language. It really depends on how bad the danged game is. What game is it? That’s for Graham and Paul to know, and for you to find out, if you can come in person. (If you can’t make it, don’t worry, the game is Nier and it’s AWFUL.)
