For the second time the Japan and Anime convention AnimagiC took place in the Rosengarten congress center in Mannheim in early August. The organizers celebrated the 20 year anniversary of the event with a great line-up of guests from Japan over three days.
Dokomi, one amongst, if not the biggest Japan and anime convention in Germany opened its doors for over 45000 attendants from May 18 to May 20 at the fairground of Düsseldorf.
Spring is around the corner, meaning the Japanese convention season is about to begin. This year I will visit three major conventions in Germany, one of them is the Dokomi in Düsseldorf. In this post I will introduce the event and this year’s program.
Perfume performed their 6th world tour Cosmic Explorer and I was with them in San Francisco on August 28, 2016.
On a sunny morning the Super Hakuto limited express took me to Himeji, west of Kobe. The first car allowed free sight into the driver’s cockpit and the rails in front which was a welcome change to the usual seat row view.
