What is Anime Banzai?
Anime Banzai is an educational convention focusing on Japanese anime (animation), manga (comics) and culture. Anime Banzai is sponsored by Utah Anime Promotions, a non-profit educational organization dedicated to bringing the culture, art and fun of Japan to Utah. In 2005, the first Anime Banzai was held and hosted 600 attendees, which was double what we had planned for. In 2014, we had around 5000+ fans join us, and we're looking to have another exciting year in 2015!

The goal of Anime Banzai is to bring an event to Utah where fans can come together to celebrate Japan and Japanese Culture in a fun, safe, family-friendly atmosphere. To that end, we hold our convention three days each year with panels, events, and contests that will let fans enjoy their favorite aspects of Anime and Japanese popular culture.

Technical Difficulties. - The email server has been having technical difficulties for the last few months. Unfortunately, we seem to have lost quite a few emails, so if you have contacted us via email and haven't gotten a response, that might be why.
We now have a new list of email addresses available here that you can use to contact us until the difficulties are resolved.
• Also, due to how late the Mail-In registrations forms were, we have decided to extend Early Pre-Reg pricing for Mail-In Registration only to May 22. See here for details.
