Despite that the experience wasn't full of costumed anime and manga maniacs, we still had a great time. Here for you is a picture journey through the festival.
There were some models showing off what I think was Pucca clothing. It was a little freakish to see these gals make intentional cute poses.
A lot of the booths were selling off goodies. Here is a popular item these days, which is fake bread or pastries that actually carry a pseudo scent of bread.
There were a lot of spaces set up for contests and games, giving the underage plenty of fun things to do.
American cartoons were represented here and there. Spongebob is very popular out here, in case you didn't know.
There was a section where cartoon and other artists set up little booths to sell and promote their works.
One area was set where you could make cookies and have them baked. It was free but to do it you had to sign up early.
This back area section had more artists set up that were available to sign their works. I was impressed to see some lines formed for these artists.
Further back we went the more less crowded it became. We found one area where you could do some drawing. I spotted the only costumed festival goers the whole time drawing at a table.
There was even a section set up for illustrative drawing with a Wacom tablet. I wanted to join in but the participants seemed glue to their seats.
We finished up the cartoon and animation festival and while we tried to exit ended up in a separate exhibit featuring Korean folk crafts and traditional wares.
