The first anime con (or third but the first two weren't so successful I was told) took place at Virginia Commonwealth University in Education City on March 28, 2012 from 4pm.
There was a huge turn out with hundreds of anime fans. Even the Japanese ambassador was there and he gave a short speech.
The ambassador was also sporting a "World Cosplay Summit" t-shirt.
Lots of activities including a models gallery, Artist Alley, and Dealers table.
And of course lots of cosplay!!! What an exciting event!!
