Comics, Anime + More: Get Your Nerd On at Kumu's Virtual Pop Culture Expo This Weekend

Get ready to drown in all things pop culture.


( Stepping into conventions feels a lot like entering a whole new world, an alternate universe, even—one you'd never want to walk out of. Why would you? It's filled with things you like and people who share the same interests and hobbies. Joining one pre-panini meant coming out with more collectibles, discoveries, friends, and heck, memories, in tow. We totally understand if you'd be more than happy to drown in loads of content from your faves. So, if you're a fan of anime/manga, art, gaming, cosplay, and a lot more—we have just the right place, virtually, for you to be this weekend: the Kumu Pop Kulture Expo.

On June 25 and 26, fans and enthusiasts can tune in to the Filipino platform's channels where an avalanche of events—from interviews, talks, contests, giveaways, and even a Tekken Challenge, among others—will take place throughout the two days. This is the much-awaited revamp of the Kumu Nerd Expo in 2020. 


We spotted this stream of content happening on Kumu this weekend: 

Watch your favorite Tekken characters in action on June 25, the first day of the Kumu Pop Kulture expo, as Kumu's first Tekken Tournament will take place throughout the day. 

Set your alarms on June 26 from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. and relive your dream to become one of the Power Rangers as you join top Filipino geek content creator Chris Cantada Force. Plus, catch the live interview with Ryousuke Kaizu, a.k.a. Red Mask, from the 1980's show Hikari Sentai Maskman from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. There's even the chance to win a helmet.

If you're into comics or aspiring to create your own, you might want to tune in to comic artist Ian Sta. Maria's masterclass happening on the same day, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. You can also catch TimeLaffs, Enjiepedia, and GabMadrid, among others joining in on the fun. YouTube's Bat In The Sun will also grace the event.
