What is Anime Expo?
….Anime Expo , also known as “AX” is the largest celebration of Japanese pop culture in North America!
Anime Expo is an annual convention dedicated to Japanese culture and currently held at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Traditionally Anime Expo (AX) is held on July 4th weekend as a 4-day event. Anime Expo is growing in scale dramatically, and is currently the largest anime and manga convention in North America. Popular events include; the Masquerade, Anime Music Video Contest, Concerts, and the Fashion Show. Anime Expo also offers late-night programming such as dance, video screenings, tabletop and electronic gaming, and open-mic karaoke. Many of the attendees cosplay while attending the convention, and join in the many gatherings for fans of different anime, manga, gaming and other genres.
