ON THE SCENE | MADMAN ANIME FESTIVAL 2016
BY JULIA KAMBOUROPOULOS
Australia’s biggest names in anime, Madman Entertainment and Anime Lab teamed up together for the first time to create Madman Anime Festival 2016.
The festival was held in the Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre from the 3-4th September to celebrate anime and Japanese culture. Inside the convention you could find plenty of exhibitions, stalls, artists, video game competitions, international guests and cosplay events to delight the fans.
Many of the fans participated in the cosplay events by dressing up as their favorite characters and presenting themselves to the panel of expert judges. The fact that most finds didn’t mind losing is a testament to the appeal of the festival, and the opportunity it offers fans to join in the fun.
