The Anime Expo is a convention that takes place once a year and is devoted to the culture of Japan. It is now hosted in the Los Angeles Convention Center. 

Anime Expo, also known as AX, is typically a four-day event that takes place over the July 4th weekend. Anime Expo is presently the largest anime and manga convention in North America, and it is rapidly expanding to accommodate more attendees every year.

Events such as the Masquerade, the Anime Music Video Contest, Concerts, and the Fashion Show have proven to be very popular. Late-night activities at Anime Expo include open-mic singing, dance, and screenings of live-action and animated films, tabletop, and electronic gaming. 

Many of the guests dress up in costume while visiting the convention and participate in the numerous meetings that are held for fans of various types of media, including anime, manga, gaming, and other types of media.

Anime Expo is well-known for its ability to bring prominent guests to the United States for events such as panels and concerts. In addition, Anime Expo has hosted the United States premieres of a large number of shows, movies, and bands, including AKB48, Hatsune Miku, Morning Musume, Porno Graffiti, Yoko Kanno, SKIN, and many others.
