Thousands of visitors flocked day 1 of the Kyoto International Manga Anime Fair 2013 which is considered Western Japan’s largest anime trade fair.

One of the event’s highlights may have been that gigantic full-size head of the Colossal Titan. Fans flocked to get their pictures taken with the massive head and the long lines on the Attack on Titan booth proved how popular the series really is.
