Activities: Gear up for a high-octane event brimming with live melodies, mingle bingo, a cosplay rumble (registration link provided), ample rounds of Drink Pong, and a gacha-esque Spin the Wheel for a chance at numerous riveting prizes! We encourage all our Mingle Bingo folks to mingle with attendees from diverse universities. As always, exciting treasures are waiting for those who complete their bingo cards. Each activity will be supervised by Anime Sydney, but that's not it for this year! The Art Corner, a special spot for you to manifest your artistic prowess, is maintained by AnimeMQ.
