In Shanghai, fans of comics and games from around China have converged at one of the biggest domestic events in the animation industry. Let's take a look at some highlights from the 6th China International Animation and Games Expo.

Comic book figures have come alive at the Expo. Animation fans are dressed up for cos-plays in support of their favorite animated characters. But joining the fun is not as simple as buying a ticket. All 40 teams are winners of a nationwide selection process.

A cosplay performer said, "We are students. We don't have a big budget, so we made all the costumes ourselves. But that's the fun of cosplay."

And it's not only the students that are enchanted by the charm of animation; it's the parents, too, who come to learn and share in the fun with their children.
