What is anime, anyway? And by the way, what is manga? And why are all those people wearing costumes? Over the weekend of May 27 and 28, the second annual Riverside Anime Con (anime convention) is happening at the Convention Center in downtown Riverside. In conjunction with this event, stop by Riverside Main Library Community Room from 12:00-2:00 PM on Saturday, May 27, for a conversation and Cosplay (costume play) mixer.
