Saló del Manga de Barcelona

This weekend was held the annual Manga Festival in Barcelona. It's been the XX edition, bigger than ever with 50.000 square meters of exhibition, and beating again the assistance record in more than 130.000 people.

A funny thing happened in this performance, when the worst scene of Berserk was played by chance in the background, distracting the singer when everybody started laughing...

The exhibition was not only full of merchandising stands, but also Japanese food stands. There was a big stage performing concerts and karaokes, a lot of cosplay, and a good opportunity to buy (not a cheap price) manga, films, anime, t-shirts, books, figures, posters, .... whatever related to manga phenomenon.

This year the manga Shingeki no kyojin (進撃の巨人) was a top trend, despite it was dedicated to Pokemon.

And as every year, a lot of people disguised being for one day their favorite manga protagonist or hero.
