Anime NYC was lit. I had a fantastic time.  Was able to link up with Stephanie of Anime Girls NYC.  Shout out to her. Thank you for being such a cool person.   Saw some really nice cosplay. Attended some really cool panels and best of all, I was able to enjoy this all with my team.

At this point, in my blogging life, I think I’ve made my love for music and animation pretty clear. So anytime, they come together and further enhance each other story, I’m utterly excited.  I’ve been going to conventions for many years now and I have been seeing an influx of panels that combine these different narratives. During Anime NYC, I had the pleasure of attending two.  In this particular post, I will be focusing on Beyond Bebop: Japanese Jazz. Continue reading

ANIME NYC Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt Event

The movie is a continuation of the animated series called Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt: December Sky, which continues the story of series after the One Year War.

The live action of Fullmetal Alchemists made it’s US debut at Anime NYC and you had to purchase $10 tickets to see it and I must say I really liked the movie, it all was just a summary of everything that happens in FullMetal Alchemist with a twist. The movie will officially be released on December 1st, 2017. The wonderful thing about this movie is that the ENTIRE cast is Japanese and it was amazing to actually see it play out this way, I honestly wouldn’t want to see a Hollywood adaptions because this was just perfect as is.

Anime NYC Overview

Anime NYC was this past weekend and first, we want to give a huge shoutout to Anime Girls NYC. Meeting Stephanie was awesome since we talk back and forth on WordPress often, we actually unknowingly met at the checkpoint as I was complaining about taking off my backpack again to get in on the show floor after coming from the Artist Alley and she turned around and agreed. It was a funny first meeting before we met on the show floor and officially introduced ourselves to each other. Check out her blog and her review of Anime NYC here.
