Photos from the floor of Japan’s biggest convention for anime and video game figures

The most recent winter Comiket wrapped up on New Year’s Eve, but last weekend Japan had its first A-list otaku event of 2024 with the latest edition of Wonder Festival. Held at the Makuhari Messe convention center in Chiba, Wonder Festival is Japan’s largest convention dedicated to anime and video game models and figures, and we had plenty of new designs to turn our camera lens towards.

This year’s winter Wonder Festival featured perennial favorites like the casts of Fate/Grand Order and Azure Lane, as well as some younger series that have solidified their popularity such as Blue Archive and Arknights, plus representatives from the ever-evolving pantheon of VTubers/virtual YouTubers. So, without further ado, let’s take a look at the best of the best from the show floor.
