Anime Expo proudly reveals the cover to our 2013 program guide! Max, the official mascot of Anime Expo, is depicted in a boldly energetic piece illustrated by our artists in Japan and evokes the exciting experience awaiting attendees at our annual convention.

Our current Guest of Honor lineup for AX 2013 includes:

Voice Actors Eric Vale, Kyle Hebert, Christopher Sabat, and Johnny Yong Bosch with his band Eyeshine, Screenwriter Mari Okada, and Japanese electro/club scene DJ Ram Rider. We also welcome as industry guests J-Pop group Starmarie. Be sure to follow us on our social media channels, because we have more guest announcements on the way!

Fan favorites such as Masquerade, AX Dance, Karaoke, Table Top and eGaming, and Battle of the Bands will be coming back this year. The Fashion Show also returns for its second year, featuring “Gal” fashion straight from Shibuya.

At AX 2013, attendees can connect with their favorite artists, voice actors, and musicians from Japan; share the amazing cosplay, art, and AMVs that they create; and enjoy the best in Japanese anime and pop culture. This July, join us at the Los Angeles Convention Center for our twenty-second year!

Connect. Create. Culture.
