Tuesday, November 13, 2018 from 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM


Join us for a lunchtime discussion with Victor Lee, a pioneering leader behind Anime Boston, New England's largest anime convention. Victor has overseen Anime Boston's growth from a small conference into an expansive three day event that  brings in over 30,000 fans supported by an all-volunteer staff of over 350.

Victor will be discussing the vision he sees for Anime Boston in 2019 and beyond, including possible collaborations with anime studios, record companies, and more. He will also talk about how Anime Boston has changed over the years, and some of the challenges he's faced managing an all-volunteer organization.

He will also touch on his personal history with anime as an Asian American, how Japanese anime differs from American comics, and why anime resonates with Westerners and Bostonians in particular.
