By now, you may be wondering about dates and status for AOD 2018.
AOD has been a fixture in the San Francisco Bay Area's anime community for 15 years now, and we are extremely grateful for your continued support over the years.
Fifteen years is an extremely long time in this scene. After a summer of reflection, we have decided that for a variety of reasons, the time has come for AOD to "graduate". As such, we are announcing our retirement from the anime convention scene.
If you were an exhibitor who placed a deposit for next year, you should have already received information from us on the refund process. If you have any other general questions, please e-mail us. After this weekend, we will no longer be monitoring AOD's social media accounts, but our web site will remain online for the foreseeable future.
Some of us will be forming a separate group to develop a new event focused primarily on gaming. When ready, the new group will be making an announcement, so stay tuned.
Once again, thank you for all of your support over the years. It has been a tremendous honor to to serve our community, and we hope we were able to create many great memories and wonderful experiences for you.
