AnimeNEXT Convention 

The Atlantic City Convention Center welcomed back the 16th Annual AnimeNEXT Convention, which began Friday, June 9 and conclude Sunday, June 11. The facility welcomed 30,000 anime enthusiasts over the course of three days. AnimeNEXT is the largest independently organized Japanese animation (also known as anime) convention in the tri-state area. This three-day event celebrates Japanese and East Asian culture and entertainment, with featured guests such as animators, voice actors and actresses, musical artists, and panelists. The convention will include concerts, panels, visual artists, workshops, cosplay contests, a video game room featuring arcade machines fresh from Japan, a vendor’s room, and meet and greet opportunities. Attendees are encouraged to dress up as their favorite characters and celebrities from pop culture, which is what people in the community refer to as cosplay or “costume play.”
