The first is to respond to the enthusiasm displayed by the 41,628 people who attended the ACE 2012. The second is to provide an opportunity for even more exciting encounters between visitors and animated works. They intend to scale up and make this event more enjoyable in every way than the previous event. The hall space will be expanded to make room for even more visitors.
