In response to the pandemic-related gap, this year’s Tokyo Comic Con’s theme was “Connect — A place for new connections,” with the goal of creating a space where different cultures and personalities can meet.
Tokyo Comic Con is back, marking the end of its three-year Covid-19-driven hiatus. Tokyo Comic Con is an event that deals with American pop culture such as movies and comics that attracts more than 60,000 people. Held across five halls in Chiba Prefecture’s Makuhari Messe, Tokyo Comic Con 2022 was double the size from the last Comic Con in 2019. In addition to exhibiting by Disney/Marvel & Star Wars and DC Comics, it is also attracting attention for the visits of famous Hollywood stars to Japan.
This event has become a hot topic every year because the cars and props that were actually used in the movies are on display. This year, a total of 13 Hollywood stars, including Hayden Christensen, who plays Anakin Skywalker in the Star Wars series, Christopher Lloyd, who plays Doc in the Back to the Future series, and Joseph Quinn, who plays Eddie Manson from Stranger Things have been announced to visit Japan and are attracting attention.
