I have always been fascinated by the Manga culture and the art style. Not only Manga is famous for that but they also have a faithful following – one that continues to grow.
Recently, I had the opportunity to attend Manchester Anime and Gaming Convention. I managed to purchase the early entry tickets and with my friend Claire who was dressed as Harley Quinn, we set off to soak in the Manga culture.
The event did not disappoint. There were a lot of stalls selling action figures, clothing and traditional Japanese food. I have been living in Manchester for more than 10 years and there was some stuff there that I have never seen before. And yes, there were Waifu pillows there too.
Cosplay too was amazing. There seems to be more and more people cosplaying nowadays and it’s nice to see my favourite characters come to life right before my eyes. Characters from Tokyo Ghoul, Bleach and my favourite Fairytail were cosplayed and I have to say, the effort from cosplayers were astonishing.
