How did you calculate ticket prices?
Using some clever mog math discovered by our travelling friend Stiltzkin, we came up with a price that would guarantee the events success. If you look at the number of hours this event is, it’s roughly the same cost as what a movie ticket would be. Events of this nature are extremely expensive to produce. Thanks to a lot of hard work, we’ve been able to make tickets affordable.
Why is the Anima ticket twice the price?
One word. Loot. Every extra penny will be spent on goodies. We are going to give you a great selection of event exclusive items. These items will be featured in an upcoming episode of KupoCast. Stay tuned for more info!
I want to bring my kids, where do I purchase their tickets?
You don’t. Children under 12 get free access to the event if they are accompanied by a paying adult. You don’t need to book in advance just turn up on the day with your paid ticket and let us know you have a child with you. We’ll have a special item for them too. We are very proud that this event is open to everyone!
Why is the evening events 18 and over?
It’s the law. We are serving alcohol. Sorry.
Can I buy a ticket at the door?
Tickets will be available online until Noon on the day of the event. After that time, you will not be able to obtain a ticket. We strongly recommend that you purchase in advance to guarantee your loot! We won’t accept cash on arrival. There may be an opportunity to pay by credit card.
Do I need the names of the people coming when I book?
No. Just use your name on the tickets and update it when you know who is coming with you. Don’t delay purchasing as you may miss out on the ticket you want. Some of the tickets are very limited.

World class professional orchestra, such as the Tokyo Philarmonic Orchestra in Japan, will perform a selection of the best and most beloved music from the original soundtrack of the whole saga. The concert will feature more than 70 musicians on stage, with amazing HD video cinematics supervised by director Tetsuya Nomura himself.
