Last year saw the addition of a new event to the anime calendar - Hyper Japan. The event was a mixture of merchandise, exclusive screenings, stage performances and food & drink not seen at other UK events. Despite its small size it was a promising event and this month it is back in a bigger venue!
The new Hyper Japan will take place at Olympia Two in London on 22nd - 24th July and will feature a host of cuisine, culture and anime goodness. There will also be a cosplay competition in association with Square Enix, with a range of Square Enix merchandise on offer as prizes. Read on for full details
The contest will take place on stage at 12pm on Sunday 24th July at Hyper Japan and is open to anyone dressed as a character from any Square Enix releases.

Also taking place will be the CosParade (masquerade), where participants will have the chance to win prizes as individual and group entries.
