Female anime fans and fujoshis are on the rise in Japan and Animate celebrated them in a special event, the Animate Girls Festival 2013.
The event was held from November 2-3 at Sunshine City, Ikebukuro and was certainly a feast for any female anime fan. Now, we take a look at the cosplay and some of the merchandise displayed during the event.
Ikebukuro has been known as the favorite hangout for female anime fans and fujoshis because of the famed “Otome Road” as well as rows of shops dedicated to them. On the morning of November 2, Ikebukuro was flooded with even more women because of the event.
Of course, it won’t be an anime event without the oh so important cosplay. UtaPri, Amnesia, Magi, Black Butler and yes, Free! were all represented.
