(Yuba-Sutter, CA) – A new event is coming to Marysville, known as Population Anime-Con. The Appeal-Democrat reports a “love for anime by the organizers” is the inspiration for the event, and a desire to “do things differently and in a way that includes the community,” and lists the ‘masterminds’ as Santi Jayy, Monica Lagunas, Virginia Yáñez, and Ruth Soto from Apples Personally Yours on D Street in Marysville.

Population Anime-Con will include a cosplay tournament at 2:00 that afternoon and feature voice-actress Elise Baughman. The paper also notes R2-D2, of “Star Wars” fame might even make an appearance. Food trucks and carnival games will also be on hand.

The family friendly event is set for this Saturday, from 9 until 9, at 420 D Street in Marysville. Admission is $8 for adults and $5 for those 17-and-younger and free admission for children under 5.
