Anime DeMoii Survey 2016

Anime DeMoii 2016 has come to an end! THANK YOU everyone who attended this year’s DeMoii. We had a recorded breaking attendance thanks to all of you! We had lots of fun and we hope you did too.
If you could spare a few minutes while recovering from your con hangover, please take this SURVEY to help us continue to grow and improve for 2017. One lucky winner who completes the survey will be randomly drawn to win an Anime DVD Prize Pack.

Parking 2016

There have been a few changes this year with parking. You will now be required to purchase a $2 parking pass from Drake University in order to park on campus.

Parking passes can be purchased HERE or from the guard stand at Lot 16 (the closest lot to Olmsted center.) Cash only will be accepted on site. Please place passes in a visible spot in your windshield. Top tiered sponsors ($25+) will be receiving passes as part of their sponsorship package.

The passes will be good for any commuter lot on Drake’s campus. The recommended lots are marked in red, with recommended overflow lots in pink. Please be aware of reserved parking spaces, such as spots marked for Drake staff, overnight students, and 60 minute visitor parking.

Free street parking is available but limited and may require some walking to get the convention.

Drake University can and will ticket and/or tow cars found parking in unauthorized spots or without passes.

This year, Anime DeMoii is teaming up with the Des Moines Public Library to bring a Manga Library to the convention!

It will be located by the anime viewing room on the lower level. Attendees will be able to grab a manga from the library’s vast collection and find a quiet place to sit and read throughout the convention.

You’ll also have a chance to register for a library card, which will allow you to check out manga year-round from the DMPL’s many locations. They’ll also be hosting a raffle, drawing activities, and a photo booth.

Guest of Honor: AmaLee

Anime DeMoii 2016 is happy to announce that YouTube sensation AmaLee will also be attending as one of our guest of honors this year!


AmaLee is a voice actress and vocalist, also known as “LeeandLie” on YouTube where she has gained over 700,000 subscribers and 180 million+ combined video views for her English adaptations and covers of anime and video-game songs. Some of her most popular English covers include Crossing Field (Sword Art Online) and aLIEZ (Aldnoah.Zero)


You can see her work HERE and give her a warm welcome to Anime DeMoii!

Guest of Honor: Felecia Angelle

We are very excited to announce that the great Felecia Angelle will be one of our guest of honor at Anime DeMoii 2016!

Felecia Angelle is a voice over actor and suspected Sea Witch. We can’t pin anything on her for sure, but she’s voicing adorable characters and there’s a mute mermaid making complaints. You do the math.

Her non-acting hobbies include pretending she could do better than TV cooking show contestants, playing videogames (poorly), and buying more books than she could ever possibly read. You can hear her voice all up in your anime, as well as coming through the TV to sell toys to your kids.

Her recent work includes The Hero Emilia/ Emi Yusa in The Devil Is A Part-Timer!, Perona in One Piece, Shinoa in Seraph of the End, Nozomi Moritomo in The Rolling Girls, Supreme Kai of Time in Dragon Ball: Xenoverse, Aoi Asahina in  Danganronpa: The Animation and Alex Bendetto in Gangsta.

Felecia’s also recently begun a foray into the world of directing as the Assistant ADR Director for Blood Blockade Battlefront, Barakamon, One Piece, and Attack on Titan: Junior High, the Lead ADR Director for Sky Wizards Academy and Co-ADR Director of Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash.

Let’s give her a big welcome and keep an eye out for updates to see what exciting things she’ll be doing at Anime DeMoii!
