Anime Impulse 2023 was held at the Fairplex in Pamona, California on January 14-15th. The event saw a huge turnout in terms of attendees as many cosplayers braved the unusually wet, sometimes torrential, rainy weather. The event was held in conjunction with the Asian American Expo, K-PLAY! FEST, and Sneaker Expo, all included for the cost of one ticket!
The headliner guests include beloved VTubers NISANJI EN, a plethora of renowned voice actors such as Johnny Yong Bosch and Kira Buckland, and a slew of popular cosplayers.
