At this point, in my blogging life, I think I’ve made my love for music and animation pretty clear. So anytime, they come together and further enhance each other story, I’m utterly excited.  I’ve been going to conventions for many years now and I have been seeing an influx of panels that combine these different narratives. During Anime NYC, I had the pleasure of attending two.  In this particular post, I will be focusing on Beyond Bebop: Japanese Jazz. Continue reading

ANIME NYC Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt Event

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.

This was my first year at BOOKCON. I thought at first it was going to be boring and that there would only book signings but I was wrong, BOOKCON was really interesting. I turned out to be something I did not expect. I never really thought of the process people put into books. I had the opportunity to meet some really good authors and learned about their stories. It was interesting to see how people can turn their fantasy into a reality through a story.

New York Comic Con 2016: Overview

13010-2

New York Comic Con was lite. The team and I had a phenomenal time.  Saw a former Co-worker/friend. Bump into a few other acquaintances. And even brought my baby cousin along for his first convention.  The little guy fell asleep when we sat down to eat lunch on Sunday. Hysterical. He’s not built for the blerd life.  But let’s get right into it.
