If you're looking for boredom in Tucson, then you shouldn't go to Con-Nichiwa. The rapidly growing anime/manga pop culture event started today and will go on through Sunday, March 23 at the Tucson Convention, 260 S. Church Ave. The special guests include American manga artist and graphic novel illustrator Armand Villavert Jr. Vallavert Jr. is a Phoenix based artist and he's famous for his work at Tokyopop and Boom! Studios. Notable Anime voice actors Ellyn Stern (Robotech), Richard Epcar (Batman, Rototech, Lupin The Third, Naruto) and Bryce Papenbrook (Dynasty Warriors, hack//Sign) and Cherami Leigh (Throwing Stones, Radio Disney) will be at the event.

As always, there's cosplay (costume performance) contests and a full schedule of panels and programing all three days. There will be musical performances by all girl L.A. rock band Nylon Pink and Candy Bomber.
