Ladies, Gentlemen, and Otherwise, it is our privilege and pleasure to bring to you FANS Japan, our first national body under the FANS umbrella. Headed up by Dr. Darren Ashmore of Yamanashi Gakuin University, it will be a group specifically for fandom and neomedia studies of Japan. Scholars from all nations are welcome to contribute.
Our first event is the YGU Cosplay Conference, scheduled for 18 March 2017. We are also still considering applications for the FANS Japan editorial committee. Please contact Dr. Ashmore at the above-linked address for questions or submissions. The FANS Japan journal is still in development but details on this, and everything else, will be announced soon.
