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. We look forward to meeting some of you that are going to be at Liberty City Anime Con just let us know on our twitter if you want to meet up with us.
Here’s a few post we did about last years Liberty City Anime Con:
Movie Synopsis: Jonathan Shannon (Ryan Phillippe) gives his 17-year-old daughter Clare (Joey King) an old music box that promises to grant its owner seven wishes. Skeptical at first, Clare becomes seduced by its dark powers when her life starts to radically improve with each wish. Everything seems perfect until she realizes that every wish she makes causes the people who are closest to her to die in violent and elaborate ways.
I recently finished watching an anime called The Royal Tutor also known as Ōshitsu Kyōshi Heine 王室教師ハイネand it turned out to be a really good show. I enjoyed the comedy and drama in the show. The characters are funny and all of them have unique personalities. Heine is my favorite character in the show because of his child-like appearance and his grown man voice. Heine was what had me hooked onto the show. Heine reminds me a lot of Sebastian from Black Butler with his mature attitude and his sense of humor.
Fooly Cooly ( Furi Kuri) is one of the most memorable Anime’s of my childhood. Originally airing on American Television back in 2003. Fast forward, 14 years later and the mere thought still brings a smile to my face. From Naota cynical outlook to Haruko’s Vespa and everything in between, most of all Lord Canti. So when Cartoon Network announced a possible remake, I was in shock but more over confused. In all seriousness, FLCL has everything packed into six episodes. What more could they possibly do? My answer came in the form of a trailer.
My first encounter with Takeia Marie happened randomly while attending New York Comic Con back 2012. A rap cipher gone wrong in the middle of the artist alley show floor. She nice with the pen in more ways than one. She can spit. And even though I embarrassed myself, it made that experience that much more memorable. How many people can honestly say that they met in this type of manner at Comic Book convention. Not many! But we’ve been chopping it up ever sense.
So when I reached out for an interview. This is what she had to say.
