Anime Matsuri is an annual, three or four-day event here in Houston and it’s going on this week. This year’s Anime Matsuri is at the George R. Brown convention center and features an artists’ alley, a car show, attendance of celebrities and special guests, cosplay, cosplay chess, cosplay contests, a Japanese fashion show, robot gaming events, karaoke, live concerts, special panels and tons of vendors. Although Anime Matsuri has been an annual event since 2008 this was my first convention of this kind and scale in my life. I’m likely going to mark it on my calendar to return next year and take more photos and maybe some video. My favorite part were those participating in cosplay. Each of them were friendly and happy to share their passion for the characters or stories that has touched their lives in some way.
