Vote: Animeland Wasabi 2016

This coming year, you’ll have a huge decision to make. The field is littered with candidates to choose from: There’s the one we’ve known for years, but you have a lot of questions about whether or not they can relate to you anymore. Then there’s the one that talks unapologetically about knowing what you need and has only shown you a taste of what to expect.
Or how about the one coming off of a “least of the evils” team because they want a piece of the pie.

When you look at your options for 2016, remember…you’re allowed to pick EVERY candidate in this election. But if you’ve only got one vote to cast…we ask you to look at the candidate that has kept their ear to the ground from the beginning. The candidate who makes a point to listen to you, make changes based on you, learn painful lessons at great personal expense thanks to those lessons. The candidate that lives and learns and stays true to you, the voter.

In 2016, vote Animeland Wasabi!!

Our platform PROMISES no new taxes, lower rates and a down to earth approach. Expect all the things that made you fall in love with Animeland in the first place: PEOPLE you can talk to running YOUR convention: Guests that you WANT to see interacting with you, the voter! Bootleg Free Vendor Room! Cosplay! Prizes! Sideshows…DODGEBALL!!

This year, vote Classic Animeland Wasabi. Still fighting to give you what you want: A New Way To Anime!
