Get ready for National Anime Day

National Anime Day was established in 1980 when anime conventions were first started. Although anime conventions have a long and rich history, they originated in Japan. This makes sense since that’s where anime was born.

Comiket was one of the original conventions that introduced anime to the world. It started in Tokyo in 1975 and attracted around 700 people. Although anime has existed for a long time, one of the first “animes”, as it is called, was created in the early 1900’s.

It wasn’t until the 1970’s and 1980’s, however, that anime became a very popular TV show-starting with Astro Boy. After that, anime developed its own style.

There is a wide culture that loves manga and anime all around the globe. There are many conventions all over the globe, with the United States and Japan being the most popular.

National Anime Day celebrates the history of anime and brings people together to watch their favorite anime shows. Even a convention is held at multiple locations across the country in cities like Orlando, Nashville and Atlanta.

These conventions are open to friends and family who love anime. They offer the chance to meet comic book authors, voice actors, and sellers. They can also dress up as their favorite characters!
