FEATURE: Tokyo Anime Fair 2013 Photo Report Part 1: Industry Booths

Dragon Ball Z, One Piece, Toriko, Tiger & Bunny, Naruto, and more!

This year's Tokyo International Anime Fair (TAF for short), one of the largest anime trade fairs in the world, was held at Tokyo Big Sight from March 21st to 24th. The first two days (21st and 22nd) were only open to the anime industry members and the press, the last two days (23rd and 24th) were open to the public including enthusiastic anime fans. Many famous anime companies in Japan such as Toei animation (One Piece, Dragon Ball Z, PreCure), Sunrise (Gundam, Tiger & Bunny), TMS Entertainment (Detective Conan), Gainax (Gurren Lagann) and Studio Pierrot (NARUTO) participated in the event and promoted their popular and latest titles. I was able to attend the last day and take some photos of the exhibitions for the Crunchyroll News readers. Please enjoy!
