The World Cosplay Summit(WCS) of 2009 in Nagoya is off to a great start!
The WCS is a cosplay event sponsored by TV Aichi. The “World Cosplay Summit” was created to promote international exchange through the Japanese youth culture of manga and anime. The free and dynamic nature of manga was instrumental in the birth of cosplay. Nowadays youth from around the world find this as a common language and a dynamic new form of global interaction. The World Cosplay Summit began in Osu, Nagoya and has grown to include 15 countries from around the world. If you count audience and participants at each preliminary event, the number of people involved is now in the 100s of thousands.
If you happen to be in the Nagoya area check it out and have some fun! This is a huge international event with lots of activities and it happens all over the world. So if you don’t make it Nagoya it might be coming to a town near you soon.
We hope you have a great time at the World Cosplay Summit, as they endeavor to continue the development of this new form of international exchange. If you have pictures or stories from this event email them to us at bionicbong(monkeytail)bionicbong.com!
