Largest Anime Convention Concludes

This month, the Anime Expo (AX) wrapped up its most successful event ever – a 4-day event at the Los Angeles Convention Center pulling over 100,000 anime and cosplay fans of Japanese animation, manga (comic books) and pop culture.

The event featured 165 exhibitors showcasing tens of thousands of products.

“We’re delighted that so many lovers of this extraordinary art form were able to travel from the four corners of the globe to join us for this spectacular extravaganza,” said Michael Lattanzio, the non-profit SPJA’s President and CEO. “Hollywood is ground zero for the entertainment world and the world of anime is so very special to so many people. It has really evolved into an absolutely amazing event.”
