In its ninth year, SacAnime shows no signs of slowing.

The latest event kicks off Friday at 10 a.m. and will last until 2 p.m., and again Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

SacAnime is similar to San Diego Comic-Con or Stockton Con, but with more of a Japanese pop culture and animation focus. Many noted voice actors will be attending, including Charles Martinet (the voice of Mario, Luigi and Wario), Nolan North (Nathan Drake from the “Uncharted” video game series and Deadpool) and Troy Baker (Joel from “The Last of Us” and Booker from “Bioshock: Infinite”).

Attendees can also see live music, costume and art contests and panels featuring special guests.

This weekend’s event will be at the Sacramento Convention Center and the Sheraton Grand Hotel.
