While folks are drooling over PAX South, thousands flocked to a local Southern California convention that is is slowly becoming a powerhouse drawing eager crowds and top tier cosplayers. Anime Los Angeles celebrates its 12th year and kicked things off with a change of venue from a cramped hotel to a genuine convention center in Ontario California. 

The large crowds inside and out made it clear that this move was needed with many parts of the convention center becoming crowded despite the larger spaces. In fact, the numbers indicate that the convention drew in over 8,000 attendees.So, lets explore the wonders of cosplay through the ever popular photo gallery!

I'm able to eat 25 Mcnuggets in a row and maintain total composure. It's important to note that I have zero useful skills and will be the third to perish once the country runs out of corn syrup and the end days begin. I have zero allegiances to any gaming company or platform and go where the games are. Anime is my domain and I am a lower tier noble with hopes of becoming a duke. Oh, and I kinda started the site and trick- I mean, convinced some friends into helping.
