There are many manga conventions and also the Gamescom is known as the largest gaming trade show. The new mix of Magnology however, is unique in Germany. Here, games and manga meet at an event in the style of an American Convention. In particular, the new line-up is impressive: A novel combination of blockbuster games, indie games, YouTubers, dealers, VR technologies and E-Sports. That really makes every gamer's heart beat faster.

Last weekend, 5,000 visitors came together over 100 exclusive exhibitors in the HafenCity Hamburg. The Magnology has promised too much: exhibitors from games, manga, fashion, merchandise and cosplay shook with Japanese chefs, workshop organizers, laser tag organizers, organizers of concerts and gaming tournaments hand. but the Magnology must be much more than a spectacular and varied weekend, writing on the flag: The Magnology 2017 is the first event in Europe that could successfully combine the above-mentioned fan cultures in a convention.

But how was this unique mix even possible? The three main organizers are guilty: Hiro Yamada, founder of the original Magnology and in charge of Japan, Henning Kroll, Managing Director of J-Store, which brought this year for the first time Lolita fashion from Angelic Pretty to Europe, and Wolf Lang, co- CEO of the Hamburg game Studio THREAKS, the game Jam the largest fair in the world organized and co-organizers of the indie arena booth are (the largest pavilion in the world at gamescom) last year with Innogames. Through the exclusive exhibitor partners of all three industries this meeting was possible at eye level.

A success mix which was very appreciated by the fans!

Playing for a good cause

The charity aspect came on the Magnology 2017 not too short: Gaming companies like Blizzard, Razer, Frozenbyte and many more set of Magnology exclusive items available that could be auctioned live. The fattest bidding could probably do with World of Warcraft. The entire WoW team signed an original print. Overall, you could be happy about donations of 1,673 €.

We are pleased that the Magnology 2017 could reach their goals for this year and are curious about what they will surprise us next year.
