Anime (アニメ- Japanese Animation) has become one of Japan’s most popular cultural exports since the mid 1980’s, and has amassed a large cult following around the world. In the West Anime is often used as a term to separate the animated cartoon from the printed form which is commonly referred to as manga. Cosplay is the act of dressing up as characters from media, often anime and manga, this is closely connected with the ‘otaku’ or ‘fanboy’ culture.
More information will be available closer to the date.
