In the Limelight

More than 28,000 anime and manga fans descended upon the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. for Otakon 2019 on July 26-28, 2019.

The show, which celebrated its 25th anniversary this year, boasted a massive dealer’s hall and artist alley, plenty of anime-themed programming, cosplay, domestic and international guests of honor, and much more.

Take a look at the first part of our photo coverage from the convention below, with photography from Scoop assistant editor Carrie Wood, and stay tuned for more Otakon coverage in the weeks to follow.
