11/01/2018 - 11/04/2018

It's time for cosplay outfits to come out of the wardrobe once more as Barcelona hosts the 24th edition of its Manga Fair. Having held an event dedicated to this Japanese art form for almost a quarter of a century highlights just how committed fans of all ages in and around the city are to the perennially popular comic books and Japanese pop culture in general.

It's a full-on weekend that includes special guest appearances by illustrators and writers from around the world, new releases, marathon cinema and television sessions, live concerts of J-pop and other music, plus workshops that look at different aspects of manga and anime while others provide the chance to learn how to dress up as favourite characters. In addition, there are, naturally, a wide range of stands for browsing CDs, DVDs, comics, books, illustrations and merchandise.
