Anime Expo's official website reported on Monday that it had more than 90,500 unique attendees at this year's event, up 12% from 2014 and setting a new attendance record for the convention.

In addition, it reported a turnstile attendance of 260,700, up 18% from 2014.

The turnstile attendance has doubled since 2011, which saw more than 47,000 unique attendees and a turnstile attendance of over 128,000. Anime Expo reported over 61,000 unique attendees and a turnstile attendance of over 161,000 in 2013.

"Unique attendees" is the number of attendees regardless of how many days they attend, so a person who uses a four-day pass is counted once. "Turnstile attendance" is the number of attendees on each day added together, so a person who uses a four-day pass is counted four times.

This year's Anime Expo took place at the Los Angeles Convention Center from July 2-5.
