Where some people see cartoons, others see modern art.

Anime, the genre of animated film that came of age in the 1960s in Japan, has taken its time finding a mainstream American audience. It's a step up from Saturday morning Looney Tunes, and loyal fans have seen its popularity rise in the United States over more than two decades.

To bring the anime community in Philly together, a small group of fans is putting on the fourth KosaiKon AniFest at Villanova University's Bartley Hall on Saturday.

The AniFests started in May 2003 and are growing in popularity every year, said KosaiKon chairwoman Rachael Carothers.

"Our first event had only one room for screening anime and about 70 people attending," she said. "Now we have two screening rooms, a room dedicated to video gaming, an area for photography, and an artist's gallery."
The rest of the article talks about the cosplay contests and the game tournaments. Don't forget, Kosaikon is tomorrow! That's Saturday, March 25, at Villanova University just outside of Philadelphia.
