Pacific Media Expo isn't what you would expect from a convention. Yes, there are panels focusing on various aspects of the anime fandom and screening rooms showing new series, but PMX is much more than anime. The annual, three-day gathering brings together a wide variety of Asian pop culture phenomenon, from Japanese fashion to Korean dramas to Filipino martial arts. For many companies, it's a testing ground to see what products have promise in the US market. For fans, it's a place to find and often purchase items that normally cannot be found outside of Asian countries.

Over the course of this week, we'll be highlighting some of our cool and unusual finds at PMX. Until then, check out Shannon Cottrell's photo gallery.
