Salón del Manga
Barcelona’s version of Comic-Con has been on the go since 1995 and this year the Manga fair has doubled in size, taking up two halls of the Fira.
The theme for this edition is the presence of sport in Manga, while other activities relating to Japanese cuisine will also be held. There will be exhibitions, Manga workshops, video games, karaoke, concerts and cosplay contests (where participants wear costumes and accessories to represent a specific character or idea from a work of fiction). Visitors dressed up as a Manga character on November 1st get in for free.
€7 for a day ticket or €20 for the full event. See here for more details.
