Anime Revolution 2014 was a three-day convention hosted in the Vancouver Convention Center, Canada. Catering to a wide range of activities, exhibits, panels, and performances. These included art, animation, comics, costuming, cultural displays, dance, gaming, musical performances, and others. Anime is, however, more than just a cartoon to its fans. In a Japanese series, the characters traditionally have extremely large, doe-like eyes and spiky or long hair.

Waving blue-and-yellow Ukrainian flags and the flag of Europe, demonstrators swirled in a huge mass on the cobblestone streets, but riot police in the Ukrainian capital Kiev used batons and stun grenades to disperse hundreds of pro-Europe protesters. Thousands of Ukrainian protesters called for the ouster of the prime minister and his Cabinet, as anger at the president’s decision to ditch a deal for closer ties with the European Union.
