Senshi-Con brings anime-ted crowd downtown

Posted by Victoria Barber on September 28, 2013 

Over 1,500 people, many dressed as their favorite anime, manga and superhero characters, crowded the Egan Center for the first day of Senshi-Con 2013 on Saturday, Sept. 28. 

The heading-turning line--dotted through with people in candy-colored wigs, superhero tights, and steampunk attire--stretched down 5th Avenue and lasted hours. 

Organizers said it was a record busting year for attendence, with almost as many people coming through by the late afternoon of the first day as the entire year prior. 

Senshi-Con will continue through Sunday, Sept. 29.
