Wonder Festival is a festival dedicated to anime and game FIGURINES! Whether you are collecting them, looking to buy your first one or simply want to be amazed at all their detail…you have to go to Wonder Festival! It may not sound like it’s for everyone but I can assure you it is a fun day out even for those with no interest in figurines! The event will be held on the 29th of February 2020.

What to expect from the event?

The event is split into 2 separate parts. Half are figures created by regular people and half are created by official companies! A lot are on sale, however some are presented to simply be looked at! Although this event is about figurines, cosplay is a massive part of it too! Many cosplayers will come to the event and crowd around different areas for you to take pictures with! The cosplayers at the event are some of the best ever. But be aware, lines to take pictures with some of the cosplayers are HUGE!

Comiket is one of the LARGEST anime and manga related events in Japan!! The event was originally created to showcase manga from independent artists to help them become more well known and sell their manga! Nowadays, the event still holds that goal at heart but many come to the event to cosplay and meet other anime and manga lovers! The event will be held from the 29th December to the 31st December 2019, but it is also held in summer as well!

What to expect from the event?

The event is full of stalls selling manga and anime goods, but what makes it different from other events is that it does not have the fancy shows and stages that some do! It is still ran by an independent company! Many professional and independent cosplayers will attend the event that you can take photographs with! OR you could go in cosplay yourself!
