No Cons To This Con

Con-Jikan

It’s that time of year again, fellow weebs. Con-Jikan returns to Embassy Suites by Hilton Albuquerque, as they carry on the 7-year grassroots anime and gaming convention tradition. With all the magic you expect from such a convention, get ready for panels, contests, cosplay for days, a gaming area, vendors of unique knick-knacks and, of course, the maid cafe. What's a maid cafe? UwU, you baka, just Google it (after turning on the safe search function) to get the vision. Pre-registration tickets are on sale at con-jikan.com for $35 or pay $40 at the door. This event happens Friday, Nov. 22 from 6 to 9pm, Saturday from 8am to 1am and Sunday from 10am to 5pm. With the voice actors for both Lulu and Yuumi in attendance, local League fans can finally personally thank someone for giving them spammable laughs that drive their enemy to madness.
