The origins of the event started off as an experimental “one-off show” in Perth in February 2011, in the lead up to the event numerous critics slammed the event, claiming an event like this was doomed to fail as they predicted the old stereotype of anime fans and geeks as “basement dwellers” who don’t want to go out and party. Many fans helped to prove the critics wrong as the event was well supported proving that give anime fans the right place and they love to party just as much as anyone else does! Since the first event, Neko Nation expanded interstate to Adelaide within a few months and within a year Neko Nation held their first Australian tour in all five major capital cities around Australia! Neko Nation has now expanded into new ventures which includes tour management for Japanese international DJs and live acts in Australia, event advisory services for a variety of events including convention after parties and also Nekonomicon, our charity catgirl calendar which raises much needed funds for cat shelters around Australia.
