Over het evenement
‘Abunai’ has a few meanings in the Japanese language, but to us only one is of importance: risky. No, not in that way. In the positive way. You see, as a foundation, we aim to take risks. We strive to strengthen ourselves and our convention with it. Visiting Abunai! means watching out for the excitement of new experiences.In 2003, a group students embarked on a venture the Japanese would describe as abunai: organising a three-day convention. We’ve never stopped taking risks ever since, hosting new events such as Abunai! Presents: Your Anime Sucks!, Yakitate Abunai!, Weeb Lingo, SYNC (Dutch Voice Actors), Maneki Neko workshop, and the Abunai! Matsuri. In 2019 we introduced live action role-playing (LARP) elements to our convention.
Our Convention Each year the foundation organises Abunai!, a three-day convention celebrating Japanese culture. Abunai! is filled with events centering around Japanese pop culture (i.e. manga, anime, games, music) and the more traditional aspects of Japanese culture (i.e. cultural lectures and art/craft workshops).Abunai! is made possible each year with the blood, sweat, and tears of a dedicated and hard-working team of volunteers. We have volunteers who work year-round (staff members), and volunteers who are active during the convention (gophers, supports, and stewards).
