Anime Conventions 2018 Schedule

Anime conventions is a comic con that primarily focuses on anime, manga and Japanese pop culture. Just like any other expo or convention, anime cons often have panels, which are open ended discussions involving some pre-determined topic around anime and manga. Some events include screenings of actual anime shows that can last through the day. Another big part of anime culture is cosplay, where fans dress up as their favorite anime characters.
