– Saitama’s largest Anime / Manga festival will take place on Sunday the 14th of October in Sonic City
Omiya. Entry to the grounds is free. There will be over 80 booths and a wide variety of events. Some of the events require pre-registration. The cosplay fashion show is a highlight for many.
They have events on the main stage as well as three other halls. The main stage events are mainly live performances including some music and dance. The opening is at 10 am and the last performance goes on stage at 4.50 pm. Outside they will have anime cars and paraphernalia.
The main guest in 2017 was Yoshiyuki Tomino, of Gundam fame. The 2018 guest has yet to be confirmed. I will update when / if the information becomes available in advance of the event.
