AnimagiC 2015 – Bonn/Germany

Wednesday, 12 August, 2015

Last week we visited the AnimagiC anime convention in Bonn (Germany) together with a friend and owner of this German blog. For me AnimagiC is always a highlight because of its rich program and famous guests. This year 8 different groups were performing plays of their own invention; in 4 cinemas visitors could watch the newest anime releases and premieres; and there was live music by Japanese artists Aimer, AiRI, ZWEI and Mashiro Ayano. Especially Aimer has made a very convincing live performance and is known for her music in Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works, Zankyou no Terror, Bleach and many other animes.
And as always, here are some of the cosplayers we met there.

Japan Day 2015 – Düsseldorf/Germany

Monday, 6 July, 2015

This year as well we found the time to visit the Japan Day street festival in Düsseldorf/Germany. It is an open street festival celebrating Japanese culture, including pop-culture, music and material arts. It is a great opportunity for fans of Anime, Manga and Japanese culture in general to meet up and have fun. More than 600,000 visitors took this opportunity this year. Here are some pictures:
