Festival for anime/manga fans

Otaku festival is held in Bucharest and Brasov starting from this year. Incredible news, at least for me, and in the same time thrilling. I can't consider myself an otaku which means obsessed fan of anime and manga. I am somewhat a regular fan of manga. Probably most of us have watched Miyazaki's famous Spirited Away, Mononoke Princess, NausicaƤ of the Valley of the Winds and Howl's Moving Castle (presented at TIFF event last year).
This festival promises to promote the young Romanian artists in the anime/illustration/3D industry, who have been inspired by Otaku culture. The expo will contain a great deal of magazines, posters, Tshirts, badges and so on. Obviously the movies will not be left out and also documentaries. The location is at Centrul National de Dans Contemporan in Bucharest and at Centru Cultural REDUTA in Brasov. Very good news for all of us is the free entrance so we can all enjoy this event. Surely, it will set the trend for future festivals to come. The date set for Brasov is 30 September and for Bucharest 07-08 October.
