MANGA SALON 25 YEARS BARCELONA
FROM 31 OCTOBER TO 3RD NOVEMBER 2019
Although the manga is mainly related to a young audience, this close and passionate relationship with the Japanese cartoon and its animation began almost 30 years ago. For many, it was like love at first sight, full of passion, and this deep falling in love made everything move very quickly. In a short time, several publishers published manga and you could see anime on many television channels and even in video clubs. And in a very short time it became clear that it was necessary to create an event dedicated to manga, separate from the Comic Fair, which began to grow steadily.
To celebrate these 25 years of Manga Barcelona, these 25 years of manga, anime, cosplay and Japanese culture, we will have an exhibition that reviews some of the highlights of each of the 25 editions, and at the same time is a nostalgic look at our own history of manga and anime.
But if something has always highlighted the manga sector and, above all, Manga Barcelona, is the protagonist role that have the fans, the otaku. Without them, we wouldn’t have gotten that far. That is why this exhibition is also planned from the interaction and participation of the attendees. We will ask them to share their memories of these 25 editions, both on social networks and in the exhibition itself, where there will be spaces for them to express their experiences and anecdotes of their passage through the event.
Enjoy a pleasant and fully equipped stay for all your needs, at Apartments Freser 78.
