Pre-purchase is not available due to proof of ID.

Do I have to stay at the Hotel?

No, but we highly recommend it, even if you are local.

Is the celebrity guest list complete?

The 2023 Guest List is finalized.

Why aren't there more celebrity guests?

Anime Texas brings a comparable number of high profile English voice actors to other events of our size, and even more than some larger anime conventions. Additionally, Anime Texas is not an "autograph con;" there are dozens of activities over the course of the weekend.

 

This is not a come-and-go comic con - we have more programming in a single day than 3 days at a large comic con. We understand attendees may not be able to stay all 3 days, but it is absolutely the best way to enjoy the weekend.

Will there be an autograph authentication service on site?

We hope to have an authentication service on site for 2023, but are awaiting confirmation.

Are there day passes?

Yes, day passes are available online or at the door, but they are hand-stamped.

If you are a badge collector, purchase a VIP or Weekend Membership.

Can I get a refund for my membership?

No. All sales are final. Yes, this means you. No, we can't make an exception. This statement will be referenced if you ask for a refund.
