The first day of the first ever Anime Contents Expo (ACE) drew 20,780 attendees to Makuhari, Chiba on Saturday. ACE had announced that all Saturday tickets were sold out less than two hours after opening its doors. ACE had sold 50,801 one-day tickets for Saturday and Sunday in advance, but many people in Tokyo were unable to go on Saturday when 100-plus-kilometer-per-hour (60-plus-mile-per-hour) winds halted trains going in and out of Chiba for up to five hours.
Update: Final tally added.
