On the 23rd and 24th of May, London’s Excel Centre played host to the MCM (movies, comics and media) Expo convention. It’s a great place for fans of Japanese culture to dress up in costume, meet like minded fans and check out new games from their favourite publishers. There are tons of stalls selling anime, manga, figurines and video games. Below are some of the pictures I took in my trip up to the convention.

You can find out more about the Expo at the official website here and here. I had a great time and will no doubt be attending the next London MCM Expo which is set for October 24th and 25th. Next week is my thoughts and opinions on the PSP game Daxter!
