Kodansha Returns to Anime Expo

Kodansha is proud to return to Anime Expo – one of the world’s largest anime, manga, and Japanese pop-culture conventions in the world – in huge way with a booth, panel, and a number of giveaways for fans in attendance, and at home! Take a look below as we outline Kodansha’s full presence at Anime Expo 2022. And be sure to follow along on all our activities via our social media and by looking up the hashtag #AX22_Kodansha, all weekend long!

Anime Expo happens July 1st through July 4th and will be held at the
Los Angeles Convention Center.


Visit Kodansha at Booth #1100

Anime and manga fans can find us at the Kodansha Booth #1100. And while you’re there be sure to check out our huge art gallery with manuscript pages from series like Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku, Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie, The Quintessential Quintuplets, and Don’t Toy With Me, Miss Nagatoro. And for you cosplay buffs we’ll also be displaying real-life Tokyo Revengers-inspired uniforms.

Not only that but the Kodansha booth will also feature a video wall playing trailers from and sketch videos from some of Kodansha’s most fan-favorite anime, manga & creators!

Also, be sure to capture the memory of being at AX 2022 with the Kodansha Sharing Box photo booth and take pictures with characters from several Kodansha series including Wotakoi!
