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.

Bad Anime, Bad!! Panel

This is post is a collaboration between Alice and Myself on the Bad Anime, Bad!! panel at the AnimeNEXT Convention.

It’s been a few years since we’ve seen a Bad Anime, Bad!! panel at AnimeNEXT seeing the panel still thriving after all this time and each year continuing to come with all of the bad anime there is out in the world makes each year funnier. There are several different types of anime series some are good but, some are just bad. The panel we went to showed nothing but, bad animated series that some may have seen growing up that are recommended for children to watch at a young age but in reality children should not see. This year’s theme was Bad Retro Anime. The clips that were shown were from movies from the 1970’s during the disco era.

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.

So let’s get right into it.

IMG_1588

The WINC ( Women In Comics Convention) was on March 12th this is its second year and still going strong, the event was created by Regine L. Sawyer. The SDE team visited the event at the Bronx Library Center to check it out since this was the first time we have heard of it we got a few pictures of the event and the purchases that I made there. I spent way over the budget I was aiming for but I did pick up a lot of art to add to my wall. There were so many artists with beautiful art both women and men came out to support the artist that came to sell their work. We didn’t buy from everyone and I think we only missed 2 tables that we didn’t go up to. Continue reading

Ballin’ on a Budget (Con Tips)

 This is our guide to buying anime, manga and comics on a budget.

When buying at a convention.

  • Walking around and looking at all the booths pays off.
  • Going from booth to booth interacting with the worker and owners can help you get a deal on things you were looking to buy from them.
  • Previous step doesn’t work with big name companies it only works on entrepreneurs and small business owners that scored a booth.
  • When looking for manga or comics shop around some exhibitors do flash sales and some just have better deals and prices.
  • When buying anime DVDs always go for small business they are usually always cheaper than the big companies that are there.
  • Be on the look out for any refurbished purchases. If you buy a DVD test it out as soon as you get home to make sure it’s the real deal.
  • When in artist alley look for the deals like buy 2 get 1 free that’s 3 prints for $30. Lucky if you get buy 2 get 2 free.
  • Supporting up and coming artist is always a great buy. It could also be a recreation of your favorite characters.
  • Buy protective sleeves for your prints they are really hard to find outside of a con and they cost more outside of the con.
  • When buying a collectible do a quick research on the company if you feel some type of way about the purchase.
  • If considering buying a sword there is a few shops at every con but price them all because they never have a set price.

If you ever run into any problems or want to purchase items later on remember to
KEEP ALL YOUR RECEIPTS AND GET BUSINESS CARDS AND INFO.
