Watch Out Comic-Con! Anime Expo 2011 Brings in 125,000 Fans

Being nerdy is getting more popular. San Diego Comic-Con is the king of nerd conventions, since it has been bringing in a lot of comic fans with 2010 having over 130,000 attendees. Looks like another convention is catching up to the comic convention juggernaut. Enter Anime Expo. According to SPJA, AX 2011 has brought in 125,000 fans during its 20th anniversary on July 1st to the 4th. The biggest draw for these events to me is of course the cosplaying. Even we cosplayed (check out the pic below).

It also didn’t hurt that AX had the premiere virtual 3D performance of Hatsune Miku in the states, selling out the Nokia theater and having billboards all over promoting the Vocaloid character.

In the meantime, check out all our photo galleries from Anime Expo 2011 below.
