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.
Professor Shyguy is well known for his 8 bit- music, soulful, electro-rocking, theatrical nerd pop music. Most of his songs stem from video games, anime, and time and space. I missed the concert last year and was able to see his performance this year. I came in thier not knowing what type of music I was going to listen to. I thought it was another rock concert but I was wrong. Professor Shyguy really surprised me, he was really good.
Soulcial Dreamin’ Entertainment was invited to attend Liberty City Anime Convention in New York at the Marriott Marquis hotel. The hosting space was so much bigger this year compared to last. They even extended it to another site, the Edison Ballroom, where the main events (Masquerade) and the concerts were held. At night they hosted anime dance parties headed by Rabbit Revolution. This year the convention had plenty of panels, video games, voice actors, concerts and anime screenings. We were able to get an insider’s view of the convention while having a great time.
This weekend August 18th – 20th is Liberty City Anime Con 2017. Third year running as New York City’s largest anime convention located in the heart of NYC Times Square Marriott Hotel. Last year we attended LCAC 2016 for the first time and it did have its ups and downs but it was a really fun experience with meeting new people and the awesome dealers selling their merchandise.
Last year all we really did was attend the concerts because most of the panels we wanted to check out were cancelled or no shows, hopefully with this years full schedule there will be less cancellations. We were fortunate enough to interview Patrick Bartley Jr. from J-MUSIC Ensemble. Hopefully this year we can get a few more interviews and more content since this year should be bigger and better than last.
We have our passes and hope you and your friends got yours if not you can purchase your tickets here. For those who already purchased their tickets remember badge pickup starts at 10AM on Friday and Thursday 5PM – 7PM for those who did early registration.

Hey, what’s good everyone? It’s been a little over a month since we attended Anime Next. Between the three of us, we pushed out a ton content via our website and our other Social media outlets. Videos, pictures and other exclusive releases. (via Twitter and Instagram) So if you aren’t following us, do so because you are missing out. The grind was non-stop that weekend. But it’s Story Time.
Anime Girls NYC is a blog, I’ve followed closely for about 8 months now. And has shown love, time and time again. On whatever type of content we publish via WordPress site. So I always make sure to show love back.
“We Build Together” is something we at SDE firmly believe. When I reached out to Stephanie, AGN founder. Here’s what she had to say.
