XVII Salón del Manga
It's back - the Hospitalet manga-fest returns for its 17th edition, with all the usual fun.
Fans of Japanese comics definitely have a date at this event, with guest comic-book writers from around the world, stalls dedicated to video-games, workshops of traditional games as well as manga itself, exhibitions, Japanese language classes, conferences and round tables.
Nearby, the Poliesportiu del Centre will host karaoke and cosplay (costume play - AKA, those kids who dress up as their favourite character) competitons and the World Cosplay Summit, as well as live music. Finally, in the Sala Barradas, there will be screenings of films and tv series. A free bus service will run between the three venues, although they are close to each other, for those who fancy a bit of exercise.
