    In light of today's announcements by the state of Minnesota, Anime Detour leadership in conjunction with our parent organization Anime Twin Cities, Inc has chosen to cancel the 2020 Anime Detour convention .

    We appreciate your understanding and patience as we get processes in place to take rollovers and refunds.

Back to Old School

Back to ^Old School

How many of us remember the excitement of going back to school? The anticipation of seeing all our old friends again and making new ones. Making all new memories together. So many things familiar to us and so many new faces, activities and experiences.

I’ve always felt that same excitement each year on the eve of Anime Detour. Unable to sleep, filled with excitement to see my friends in this community once again in the hallowed halls of Anime Detour. Please join us for Anime Detour 2020 as we celebrate our 17 th year!

We would also like to celebrate just how far the anime community has come! Old school is not any one particular place in time. What it represents is different for everyone.

What connects us all is the love we have for the culture and this art form. The love we have for this community. The connections we make as we share our favorites with each other. What was your first anime? Which do you remember fondly from your younger years?

Whether your old school is from the 2000’s, the 1990’s, or even the 1980’s, all are welcome here at Anime Detour!
