The Cons: Ani:me & Popcon
The debut of Ani:me Abu Dhabi seemed to go well with a slew of famous guests headlined by legendary artist Yoshitaka Anamo who confessed he now found Anime ‘boring’ and was trying new things, specifically sculpture.
Locally based cosplayer, Sumi, won the opportunity to represent the UAE at the World Cosplay Summit in Japan. See on our Facebook page a chat with accomplished voice actor Todd Haberkorn, voice of Death the Kid (Death Eater).
Major celebrity guests like Giuliana Rancic (Fashion Police) Theo Rossi (Luke Cage, Sons of Anarchy) weren’t enough to bring the crowds to the fashion-focused Popcon. Empty seats seemed to be the result of a remote location (Dubai Outlet Mall) and last minute planning.
