Beyond the usual highlights that are common in all local events (ACG), such as the Comic Market known as the Indie Valley, art galleries, Cosplay activities, video-gaming areas, and three major event competitions related to art, Cosplay and games, MGCCon2012 will also be preparing some new event mainstays for its attendees.
