How much does a ticket for Paris Manga 2021 cost?
If you are accompanying a child under 6, the place is free for him. Apart from this particular case, there is no preferential ratewhether you are a student, elderly or looking for a job. If you plan to come the full weekend, it costs € 31. For a single day, it will cost you € 16. By taking the 2 days at once, you save a tiny € 1. If you have an Fnac + card, you will further reduce these prices … by 50 cents.
We also advise you to come with your own snack. We know from experience that this kind of event offers quite a bit of food related or not related to Japan, but the prices listed are known to be high.
Paris MANGA & SCI-FI: a trade show, a convention … a show? What to expect ?
According to its official name, Paris Manga & Sci-Fi is a “show”. Even if tickets are sold on Fnac Spectacles, don’t expect a huge concert filled with pyrotechnics. Paris Manga is something else. Not necessarily worse, but different.
Derivatives and animations of all kinds
In fact, it is a large trade fair, also known as a “convention”. For this 30th edition, there will be more than 200 different stands which will offer thousands of collectibles, goodies, manga, DVD and other derivative products related to manga and “geek culture” in general (Marvel & DC, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones etc.).
So there will be quite a few things to sell, but that’s obviously not all. The organizers have also planned a lot of guests and entertainment. In bulk, expect video games (many unseen Japanese games), cosplay (costume contest), singing contests, karaoke, fashion shows, exclusive manga and drama screenings, games music, make-up workshops, contests, quizzes, games of all kinds, martial arts, concerts and a lot of gifts to be won.
Who are the guests for the Paris Manga 2021?
In addition to the stands and entertainment, there is one last thing: the guests.
Finally, the Paris Manga is an opportunity to meet Japanese, French and American personalities. The list is extremely long, we do not have the place to detail everything here. Expect to meet cartoonists, singers, voice actors, directors, artists, athletes, Youtubers, streamers, voice actors … in short, a lot of people. The full list can be found on the official site.
