Manga Festival at Greenspace

Mangas Valencia-8

By Sunday, we were starting to grow tired of Valencia’s endless supply of religious processions, and decided to do something a little different as an antidote: the Manga and Cosplay festival being held at Heineken Greenspace.

It was cool to see all the alternative kids who showed up, given a place to truly let their freak flags fly. The only ones who looked like they weren’t having fun were the parents who had tagged along, trying show an interest in their child’s new hobby. They looked scared.

But seriously, props to the kids who sang flawless Japanese karaoke. ¡Impresionante!

    Of course the parents were scared to death to see their children parading around in such reckless abandon. The shame of our youth…such is the stuff of nightmares as we ponder what the next generation will bring to the table….besides more foder for Stephen King!!
