Anime fans at UC Berkeley and around the East Bay will be delighted to know that Anime Destiny will return in 2022 as a live event.
Anime Destiny 2022 will take place on November 12th at the Pauley Ballroom (located in the MLK Student Union) at the University of California, Berkeley. At the moment, they are accepting applications for vendors and artists.
Details about the event, including panels and cosplay gatherings, will be announced in the coming months. Tickets are also not on sale yet.
Anime Destiny is a one-day event organized by Cal Animage Alpha, the anime club of UC Berkley. The event brings together local artists and dealers along with anime fans for a day of fun. Check out my coverage of the 2017 event to have an idea of what to expect.
The last live Anime Destiny was in 2019 before the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2020 event was canceled and the 2021 event was all digital.
