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.
One of the highlights of my weekend was attending the Nerds on Hip Hop: Bridging Anime & Hip-Hop Panel.
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 →
The Gundam Thunderbolt panel was an amazing panel. Not only did we get to view the first U.S. release of the movie but, also their was a mini concert with the band that performed the music from the anime soundtrack. The anime was based on the animated series Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt. The series was very short. 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.
It’s been a week since Anime NYC ended, as you can see, I am a little bit behind schedule in terms of my Con related posts. I just started a new job, and I’m starting to re-adjust to the workload. But the rest of my posts will drop this week. So be on the lookout.
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 ENTIREcast 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 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.
As repeated many times before Anime NYC is this weekend November 17 – 19 and this is what I’m looking forward to seeing this weekend when we attend, there are so many
things to do that I’m literally stuck trying to weigh my options before the festivities even start. So I want to first bring attention to the Inaugural Pin that Anime NYC will be giving out at the registration desk. They have enough for every attendee this year according to the website so I suggest when you first walk in this is the first thing you grab before starting this weekend journey. The pin will be exclusively for this convention and it’s never coming back, so grab it while it’s hot.
Soulcial Dreamin’ Entertainment attended New York City Comic Convention in New York at the Jacob K. Javits Center. This year the convention site was much smaller than usual and it usually entails the entire center but due to it being under repair so space was cut short. Anyone who wished to attend this year had to purchase individual day passes which can be expensive if you planned to go all four days. They were not selling weekend passes this year so the convention activities were extended to other sites, Madison Square Garden, Hammerstein Ballroom, Hudson Mercantile, and the New York Public Library.
I went to a panel at Liberty City Anime Convention, where they discussed anime series from the 1980’s. I thought that this was going to be an interesting panel and it was. The panelist, John Medero, mainly talked about series from the year 1987 which was a big year in anime history. Some really great series came out that year but, he also discussed other popular anime series from the late and early 1980’s and where are they now 30 years later. It made me think of how anime has changed over the years.
Over the years the anime opening and closing theme songs have changed. When I heard some of the songs, I had a complete flashback to my childhood. Some series changed their lyrics completely and others used a translated version of the song.
