A Field Guide to Anime Expo

One of Downtown Los Angeles’ most colorful events is back this week. It’s the time of year when anime enthusiasts, video game fans and lovers of Japanese culture converge on the Central City for four days.

Anime Expo takes over the Los Angeles Convention Center on Thursday-Sunday, July 5-8. The celebration of Japanese animation, comics, games and culture draws more than 100,000 people each year to meet anime creators, attend panel discussions, enjoy screenings and catch sneak peaks of everything from cult classic “FLCL” to current sensation “Attack on Titan.”

Single-day tickets are $70 while four-day passes go for $120. Enjoying the brilliant costumes of people wandering through South Park all weekend is free.
