The final con of the season is finally here, I’m excited but exhausted at the same time. We’ve covered so much in the past few months and we’re planning to end this season with a bang. The major question on my mind and hopefully yours as well is, what does Anime NYC have in store this year?
This year will be the first year of a new anime convention in New York, the Anime Fest (which is collaborative venture between NYCC and Anime Expo ). In years prior, there was a separate anime convention that was hosted with New York Comic Con but, over the years they fused together and became one convention that enveloped the entire Jacob Javits Center.
This year attendees have the option to purchase tickets to Anime Fest and/or New York Comic Con but the conventions this year will be held in two different locations. I will be attending both conventions, this year and I can not wait to experience what both conventions have to offer.

Last year AnimeNEXT was so much fun that we’re excited about this weekend. If we haven’t said it already this weekend if AnimeNext and you should get tickets and a room for the weekend. AnimeNEXT is definitely a con to be visited in the tristate area because there is always so much to do and so many new people to meet, there’s never a dull moment going to a con that has so much to offer.
Anime NYC was lit. I had a fantastic time. Was able to link up with Stephanie of Anime Girls NYC. Shout out to her. Thank you for being such a cool person. Saw some really nice cosplay. Attended some really cool panels and best of all, I was able to enjoy this all with my team.
One of the highlights of my weekend was attending the Nerds on Hip Hop: Bridging Anime & Hip-Hop Panel.
