POMONA, CA – August 4th, 2018- The creators behind Animanga 2018 produced an impressive anime event at the Pomona Fairplex in Hall 4th last weekend, with attractions such as e-gaming, itasha car displays, stage performances, food vendors, and cosplayers.

Despite a few attendees on their Facebook event page criticizing the cost for a first year convention, their price drop from $70 to $15 was effective in bringing in approximately 3,500 attendees throughout the weekend; much to the surprise of the vendors and artists who were selling their merchandise at the show.

We were able to catch a glimpse of the event with our cosplay music video on youtube:

There is no confirmation on an Animanga Expo 2019, but from our brief conversation with Animanga’s event producers, it seems likely there will be more events planned for the future.
