Anime Festival at Chabot College


Jesus, Chabot College is really gonna geek out this weekend, as hundreds descend for the college’s second annual Kin-Yoobi Con, or anime/manga/video game/karaoke convention. In addition to a costume contest based on video game characters, participants can join a panel discussion on “Manga or anime? Which is better?” and “Which video game system is the best?” In addition, character actor Robert Axelrod, who played Lord Zedd in the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, will be on hand to sign autographs. Personally, we’ve always thought Axelrod’s best work came in his unforgettable role as “resistance member” in Akira, or possibly “gun store salesman” in the classic 1989 movie Fortress of Amerikkka.
