This year will mark Tokyo’s fourth Comic Con, and the scale promises to be even more massive than in previous years. The event will have cosplayers, a cosplay contest, gatherings, meet-and-greets, an artists’ alley, booths, exhibits, stage events, and a Japanese food court.
As expected, there will be celebrity guests and opportunities to do meet and greet. The guests confirmed this year include Rupert Grint and Orlando Bloom. Even if you don’t plan to splurge on meet-and-greets, the cosplayers, displays, merchandise, and the fact that Tokyo now has a large-scale fan convention that’s oriented more towards Western media are still good reasons to give the event a try. Just make sure to prepare your wallet, as this event isn’t exactly a cheapo option.
