In case you missed it — SacAnime brought thousands of anime lovers and cosplay enthusiasts to downtown Sacramento Friday, Jan. 5, through Sunday, Jan. 7.

Guests of honor at the convention included voice actors like Colleen Clinkenbeard (Monkey D. Luffy in the English dub of “One Piece”) + Yuri Lowenthal (Sasuke Uchiha in the English dub of “Naruto”).

Our favorite part, of course, were the incredible costumes put together by visiting fans.
