So pumped for this year!!!
Hey I'm having trouble with your website. I've never been to Anime Benzai and I'm not sure if there are tickets you have to buy or?
Hi, yes you do need to buy a ticket. The pre-reg amount is $45 or it's $50 at the door (that's for all 3 days). The website is having a problem with the Registration page, hopefully they'll have it fixed soon. Until then you can email Banzai Information or Registration with any questions. If you use facebook we have our main page at or community group
Thank you! That helped a lot!
