As the AnimeNEXT festivities continued on we took a break and sat in this Diversity panel hosted by The Panel Sisters. There were so many panels on diversity at this con this year I was so proud to see everyone get to express themselves and find others that identify with them.

No automatic alt text available.

This is the last day of AnimeNEXT and it’s really been a blast we have so much content to push out that we hope you guys think about coming out to Atlantic City for next year’s AnimeNEXT.

I’ve said this before there is so much space the elbow room is so amazing and AnimeNEXT always has something going on so finding things to do is an easy part but this year felt like there were so many choices that picking where to go will be the hardest part.

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.

3 Anime Character Challenge (Tag)

GC

The three character tag challenge has been floating around the internet for a while now. And as usual, I am late to the party but don’t fret my friends. In the words of Korean American singer Jay Park, I got this.  All jokes aside, I was inspired to take a crack at it after reading Aria Cross’ own attempt. That was back in June, and I am just now getting around to it.
