Anime Expo MC Danny Choo joined us live today to talk about the 2013 Anime Expo at the L.A. Convention Center. The Anime Expo is  July 4th through 7th  for everyone who loves Japanese Pop Culture – from anime (animation) and manga (comic books) to music and fashion. More than 130,000 fans from across the country and around the world will flock to Anime Expo to connect with other fans and for the chance to meet and hear from some of the most famous artists from Japan.

One of the most fun and distinctive aspects of Anime Expo are the thousands of fans you’ll see transformed into their favorite anime characters through elaborate costumes they spend hundreds of hours making.  It’s what’s called Cosplaying.

Music is a huge part of Anime Expo this year: three live concerts will give fans a chance to hear some of Japan’s biggest J-pop, rock and Visual Kei musical acts. Anime Expo will also bring together six of the hottest brands from Tokyo’s iconic Shibuya district for their first runway fashion shows and pop-up shops outside of Japan.
