This year’s event promises to be another memorable convention with hundreds of custom trade show displays, fan signing booths, meet and greet with celebrities, larger than life robots, colorful cosplays and so much more!
If this doesn’t excite you, then we don’t know what will! Anime Expo will feature popular events like Masquerade, Anime Music Video Contest, Fashion Shows as well as concerts. There will also be late night programming including dance, video screenings, gaming (both table top and electronic games) and open mic karaoke. Past Anime Expos have seen that a lot of the attendees attend in cosplay costumes, and join in other fun activities for anime, manga, games and other genres.
Celebrating Anime and Manga
This is an annual project and also happens to be the largest project being managed by SPJA. The convention has always been held as a four-day affair on the Fourth of July weekend. The first Anime Expo was held in 1992, and it is the second longest running anime convention in the country. Along the way, it has introduced plenty of new shows, movies, and bands to anime fans from all over the country.
Notable discussions during this year’s Expo are a panel on Full Metal Panic, as well as discussions and video shows on Pony Canyon Industry, Cardcaptor Sakura, Hyperdimension Neptunia, Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid, The Ancient Magus’ Bride, Bandai Gunpla, Anime and Manga Studies and a lot more.
Manga and anime as pop art forms have become global and far-reaching. These are popular all over the world. The fandom has gone beyond the original Japanese comics and animation forms. Lately, even Hollywood has taken note of the stories and genres and made them into big-budget movies. The concept of a convention for Japanese and Japanese-style animation and comics has been steadily growing. With the introduction of anime to cable channels and free stations, it is expected that with more people being able to access the medium, the fan base would also be expected to grow as well.
Anime Expo is proof that the fandom exists and it is as fanatical in the United States as it is in Japan or other countries.
