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.
The Asterplace performed at the Liberty City Anime Con 2016.
The Asterplace is a Anime Rock band from Tokyo based in New York City. They are known for covering popular anime theme songs such as, Asian Kung Fu Generation’s Haruka Kanata the opening theme song from Naruto.
This is the second year of the Liberty City Anime Con (LCAC) it’s in Manhattan which is convenient. This is also the first time we went there. They have 3 years already lined up in hotels around Manhattan if you want more info on that click this link Liberty City.
So let’s first talk about the location. As a New Yorker this hotel being right next to Times Square was horrible because we can’t avoid the traffic of people Times Square brings so there’s a lot of pushing involved to get there and home. The hotel was pretty nice the funny part about all this was the hotel guest that knew nothing about anime cons constantly asking cosplayers or looking at them with their crazy faces.
