Anime Fest @ NYCC x Anime Expo

Soulcial Dreamin’ Entertainment attended Anime Fest @ NYCC x Anime Expo (AF@NYCC) at Pier 94. This was the first year AX collaborated with NYCC and their first convention was hosted in New York City.  This convention was strictly dedicated to anime and I loved every minute of it. I was able to attend the event on Thursday and Sunday, experience what it was like attending this new anime convention in New York. It turned out to be a fun and unique experience .

Anime Fest and New York Comic Con had shared special events such as DreamWorks Voltron Legendary Defender panel, Dragon Ball Super: Broly Panel, RWBY and Gen: LOCK Mega Panel, and Cowboy Bebop Panel. With either pass you were able to attend any of the events outside the convention centers. The locations were pretty far from the convention center but, there was a complimentary shuttle bus that you could grab that would take you from place to place.

The show floor was large and spread out but with tons of space were you could easily move around unlike NYCC. The floor had a lot of mixed items that you could buy but what loved most was the artwork and purchased many different kinds. I fell in love with these cute Pokemon globe’s where you can see the Pokemon inside.

I spent most of my time on the show floor but I was attracted to one booth in particular called Billibilli which they held events out front. They had a cherry blossom tree where you could place your wishes.  They had two performances that I was able to see, one was a musical performance and the other was a martial arts demonstration. They were both interesting performances to watch.

I enjoyed this convention overall, even though it was very short. I was hoping that I would be able to attend next year in New York but it will be relocated to Texas. I really enjoyed the BilliBilli booth which most of the exciting activities were. I hope the next time the convention comes to New York I will be able to do more and attend more panels.

    The Texas event is actually entirely different. Both are called Anime Fest, but it has nothing to do with the one in NYC.
