Anime convention in Downtown Fresno

FRESNO, Calif.

This year's Ani-Jam brought fans of Japanese animation and culture to the Radisson Hotel and Conference Center, many dressed in costumes of their favorite characters.

While some characters are cute, others are clearly ready to fight and organizers say that's just a part of what makes Japanese cartoons so unique.

In addition to the dress up fun, the Ani-Jam also featured vendors, games, and panel discussions. There was also a costume repair station -- just in case of any anime wardrobe malfunctions.
