What is it?
It is the number one summer anime and gaming convention of Pomona. Animanga encompasses all things anime, manga and gaming. It also occurs right after AnimeExpo, so it is a great place to get discounts and deals on merch!
When is it?
Animanga 2020 will be held from Friday, July 31, 2020, – Sunday, August 2, 2020.
What to Expect?
Last year, I remember buying a plush doll at AX2019 for $40, I remember seeing the same exact plush doll being sold at Animanga for $20! Of course I bought it. Maybe AnimeExpo doesn’t like us sharing this info, but if you wanted to grab merch at a more reasonable price, you can save your money and wait for Animanga!
Of course, this isn’t a guarantee as only whatever gets left over or overstocked may be at Animanga. (Some of the same merchants who sell at AX also sell at Animanga.)
Among events to be had are, Itasha Cars, Cosplay contest, Retro Arcades (Free Play), Maid cafe, Panels, Artist Alley & Exhibitors as well as a host of other activities. There will also be performances from a few guest.
Attendee badges cost $25, weekend attendee badge cost $50 while family 4 pack cost $150. You can get your badges here.
