Killeen, Texas, we can all be real with each other: we all nerd out over something right? It could be something like a food, or even something related to sports. But one thing many are a fan of are various anime and cartoons.

I mean come on, we've all got our favorite comfort shows we like to watch right? Personally one of mine is Community or Venture Brothers, which I was recently introduced to. So while you think of the show that puts a smile on your face, let's see some of the best of Giganticon 2023.

When we first stepped into the Killeen Civic and Conference Center, we met...Darth Slushie?

We thought about buying that Bender for our radio station, but it turns out, he was much more expensive than we expected!

Overall, we saw some greatness this year at Giganticon. If you have a photo of your favorite costume you saw at the event, send it to using the chat feature on our FREE station app!
