Anime Expo

It’s time for the real reason to celebrate 4th of July! Anime Expo is here!

One of the largest pop culture conventions, and the largest Anime convention in California, has arrived. PopCultHQ got on-site a day early to check out the day zero festivities and setup.

This is a show that commands around a hundred thousand people from all over the world and features sponsors from Crunchyroll to Arby’s! The day zero festivities included a Love Live concert, activities, giveaways, and prizes. We even got into the JoJo themed escape room to try our hand at the event. In the end, Dio triumphed over the PopCultHQ crew!

Panels included features with industry heads such as Dark Horse Comics, recounting on the history of comics and Manga. On top of everything, there was Cosplay, and at an event such as this, you can be guaranteed that everyone is going to bring their A-Game! We’ll be posting on Twitter at @robot_on_coffee and @alexdoesntcosplay all through the expo. Stay tuned each day for updates and recap!

Anime Expo runs July 5th-8th, 2018 and is being held at the Los Angeles Convention Center in California. Stay tuned for more updates and coverage from PopCultHQ! To learn more about Anime Expo, be sure to follow them online! (links below)
