G-Anime is an annual weekend anime convention held in late January in Gatineau, Quebec, Canada at the Palais des congres de Gatineau and the For Points Sheraton Gatineau. The convention is run and organized by La Société d'Animation Japonaise de Gatineau (SAJG)] and is one of two anime conventions in the Ottawa-Gatineau Area.
G-Anime's events, attractions and activities, just like most other anime conventions, include a Dealers Room and an Artists Alley, anime screenings, panels and workshops, AMV contests, game shows, cosplay events (Masquerade, Cosplay Chess, Fashion Show, etc.), and video games stations (Gaming Room).
The idea for a new anime convention started when an organization called SOAP announced in summer 2008 that the 4th edition of their convention AC-Cubed was cancelled. In an effort to replace the local convention (AC-Cubed was in Ottawa, which along with Gatineau, are part of the National Capital Region of Canada), G-Anime was created. The convention's first edition was held on February 7–8, 2009.
Starting in 2012, G-Anime was held on 3 days and featured 24-hour programming (overnight at the Four Points Sheraton hotel).
