My son is turning 15. He wants a teenager party with some thing to do with anime, video games and such. I need ideas on entertainment for teenagers. I am afraid my ideas are too dorky and will ruin his party. Please help keep me from embarrassing both him and myself.

Have him help with the planning of the party. Being that it is his party, he should be able to come up with some ideas. My son and his friends, boys and girls, would get together and plan small parties. You would be surprised how many good ideas they can have. Just be available to supervise. We necessarily didn't hang out with the kids but were nearby to know what was going on and in case, our help was needed.
My son just turned 16, and had a "party" - inviting about 20 kids. I contacted a local family owned pizza place, and reserved a section for 2 hours. I bought free refill drinks for each child, 6 large pizzas, and had "fruit pizza" and ice cream. The owner let them play music, and it went over pretty well. Total cost - about $150.
Have a LAN Party. This website has some good ideas. (www.onepc.net) We had one at my daughter's 14th B'day party and it was a blast. Of course we are all BIG video game fans. Her friends brought their consoles, controllers and favorite games over and everyone had a great time. It was a sleepover so we got to stay up all night and play video games. He will have a great time!
Dont want to sound mean, but i remember being 15 and any idea of yours, even if it is cool one, will be dorky to him. Just let him go with what he wants to do, of course with your approval first. I am sure him and his friends will come up with something they want to do. After kids are about 10-14, you dont "plan" out birthday parties anymore. Kids just come over and they hang out or do what teenagers do.
