Yup, that's read correctly...Anime JAPAN! As straightforward as this name may sound, this is one of the meccas for fans of anime around the whole world, a whole 152,000 of them! And I'm definitely not exaggerating with that statement either - we saw a bunch of tourists at the convention while walking around.
This would be my second year attending, as my first was back in 2016 and I had the time of my life! I could hardly believe what I was seeing, especially coming from what I'm used to in the Bay Area, which would be Fanime in San Jose.
This convention mostly focuses on new anime for the Spring/Summer season, both brand new releases or announcing highly anticipated sequels! I recall my first Anime Japan when they first introduced Boku no Hero Academia - it's been quite a journey since then!
Here's a brief recap of the con, as I was mostly immersed into the activities and of course freebies!
