Chibi Chibi Comic Con, meaning “mini mini” comic convention, provides students a venue to show their love for mini-gaming, anime and role-playing, and also will feature vendors, artists and a film festival. The event is open to the public and costs $7 for one day and $12 for a three-day pass or $5 for one day and $10 for three days with a Griz Card. Children ages 12 and younger are free.

UM’s Anime Club partnered with SIN to co-sponsor the event. SIN is an activities-based board located in the UC that hosts workshops, comedy shows, concerts, lectures, guest speakers, films and entertainment. Its goal is to provide students a foundation of learning, leadership, diversity and fun.
