Editor's note: This will be part of the San Japan series. Check back for other stories.
Shaggy blonde hair, fake samurai swords and "konnichiwa" echoing across the halls, San Japan: Sinister 6 takes over San Antonio for its sixth year.
The Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center and Grand Hyatt Hotel prepare to bring in an expected 14,000 fans of all genres of anime, manga and japanese culture.
Julienne Christa Salvador, public relations for San Japan: Sinister 6, was invited to be on staff after expressing an interest in the convention.
"(I'm) on vacation right now so it's been a blast (working here)," Salvador said. "We're looking forward to all of the events and activities so the fun will keep us up."
Started by volunteers in 2005, San Japan was created to bring together different types of Japanese fans and animation and other Asian and fan cultures to a convention in San Antonio.
"It's a great convention full of fun, hardworking people. Everyone is so passionate about what they do, from the staff to the fans that are attending," Salvador said. "It's such a pleasure to be a part of that. We want to help share that with as many people as possible."
