ANIME EXPO 2018

     In the introduction to this summer's site theme, it was said that the site this year is a tribute to comics, anime, graphic novels, manga and the like. But what exactly is anime? In the United States, the word "anime" generally is used to refer to a form of cartoon-like art developed in Japan. The word is a shortened version of the Japanese word used to identify all animated productions developed in Japan. For those interested, a good explanation of "anime" as an art form, and characteristics distinguishing it from cartoons, can be found at www.animeartmuseum.org/whatisanimeart.

     Earlier this month, an event which its organizers refer to as "the largest celebration of Japanese pop culture in America" was held at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The Anime Expo (www.anime-expo.org) was held July 4 - 8, and the event was organized by the Society for the Promotion of Japanese Animation (SPJA, www.spja.org). In a news release the SPJA said the event drew 110,000 people from over 70 countries, with an accumulated turnstile over the few days of 350,000. The event included entertainment, music, fashion, video games, artists, cosplay and much more. Cosplay is a word short for costume play, and many expo attendees dressed up as their favorite anime characters. Once inside the convention center doors, the main hall served as an area where many gathered to show off their costumes and pose for pictures. The photographs on all the "Concert By Date" county pages are examples of some of the fan costumes seen at the expo plus miscellaneous scenes from the event. The video below is from a KCAL 9 news broadcast about the Anime Expo.

ONE FINAL THOUGHT ON THE CONCERTS: All of the concerts in the listings are free to the general public, and there are some truly outstanding programs. However, many of the groups and organizations sponsoring these concerts incur substantial costs in bringing them to you year after year. Donations which allow them to continue their tradition of bringing quality music to the general public at no charge are appreciated.


. . . AND ONE REQUEST FOR VISITORS: Survey forms are sometimes passed out at concerts/event venues, and the question "How did you hear about this event?" is often asked. If you are attending an event you found on this site and receive such a form, it would be much appreciated if you let them know that you found the information on www.dorothyswebsite.org.
