Organizers Clarify ‘PHAnthroFest’ is not an Anime Event


In a mail sent to animePHproject, the organizers of the Philippine Antro Festival 2014 clarified that the upcoming ‘furry convention’ is NOT anime convention.

They noted that it is the first furry convention in the country that exhibits the love for anthropomorphic animals through the creation and appreciation of visual arts, literature, and other forms of media, completed with a welcoming atmosphere to members of the furry community and non-members, featuring the Filipino smile.

Though it is NOT an anime convention, AnimePH has included the event in the list since it is a gathering of people with a common interest, similar in an anime, toy or gaming conventions.

The event will take place on May 17 at the Megatrade CONFERENCE Center at SM Megamall in Mandaluyong City.
