Animation On Display is an animation convention in Japantown, San Francisco, California, containing animation screenings, cosplay, panels, guests, vendors, fandom, comics, J-Rock, and more in reference to East Asian and American culture.

Formerly Anime Overdose[2] and then AOD: The San Francisco Animation Convention,[3] Animation On Display is managed by the Federation for the Promotion of Animation, and is a non-profit organization. It is the goal of the FPA to increase awareness and understanding of the art of animation and its related interests in a fun and exciting family-oriented format, and to enable those interested in animation to meet and share their interests.[4]

History[edit]

The Anime Overdose convention began in 2003 at Santa Clara University.[5] As the convention expanded, it was moved to the Nob Hill neighborhood of San Francisco.[2] Several smaller animation-related groups have come together to provide management for AOD.[4] The event was renamed "Animation On Display" in 2007, and moved to Japantown in 2010, where it has been since.[4] In 2014, AOD moved to the Hyatt in Burlingame (near SFO).
