Time to bust out your Buster Sword and strap on your weeaboo shorts, because Florida Anime Experience is charging in for a fifth year! Only this time, it’s featuring everybody’s favorite twisted masterpiece, Neon Genesis Evangelion. With a robust artist alley and a solid selection of voice actors, it may not be the biggest anime fest this town has seen, but it certainly has the most heart. The usual suspects are still there; the video game rooms coupled with a wicked vendors room will keep you busy, while a ton of panels like “Anime Scene IT!” and exclusive autograph signings with some of your favorite niche pseudo-celebrities keep the party going. If MegaCon wasn’t enough to scratch that Japanimation itch, prep your wallet and head on over. As Yui Ikari put it, “As long as you’re alive, anywhere can be paradise.”

10:30 a.m.-midnight Friday, 11 a.m.-1 a.m. Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday, April 24-26 | Park Inn by Radisson, 3011 Maingate Lane, Kissimmee | 407-536-9272 | floridaanime.com | $20-$200
