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.
Last week was SummerStage’s last free concert. The Summerstage concert series is sponsored by Capital One Bank. The headliners this year was DNCE with B.o.B as the opening act and Questlove as a special guest, this was a weird combination of artists this year. Last year was Janelle Monae and Fun. who complemented each other because it was the same energy throughout the concert.
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.

After long and exciting weekend. Drey and I, got access to the CAPCOM LIVE! concert. This was my first encounter with CAPCOM LIVE!, to be honest, I didn’t know what to expect but as a CAPCOM fan, I was curious. I grew up on Super Fighter. And Resident Evil, is hands down on of my favorite game franchises. Add in Mega Man and Devil May Cry, taking all into account. And I’m a happy camper. Naturally, the music has been with me just as long.
