Based on the common Japanese Maneki Neko (Lucky Cat), the summer¹s most highly anticipated convention, AM2, focusing on anime, music and manga announces Nyanchala/Nyan-Chan (in "chibi" form) as the official mascot for its 2011 year.
More info and attendee registration can be found at www.am2con.org.
"As the Maneki Neko is to bring good luck to an owner, we believe that Nyanchala/Nyan-Chan is truly representative for our event and will bring a great experience for our attendees, exhibitors, participants, staff and volunteers," states AM2 representative Chase Wang. "We are on a roll with some amazing events that will not be found anywhere else including the concert acts, guests from Japan, an arcade, Summer Festival, cosplay events for amateurs and pros, the World Cosplay Summit and much more! Come and join the fun and have the time of your life!"
