Billed as the largest anime convention in Florida, the 12th annual Metrocon opened Friday and runs through Sunday at the Tampa Convention Center.

Games, stage shows, vendors and autograph signings beckon fans of the art form inspired by Japanese animation.

Promoters note on the convention website that tickets are available at the door — and that for the fifth year, the event features an opportunity for traditional life forms to do good in what’s called the Anime Human Blood Drive.
