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