Resident Evil is one of my favorite game franchises’ of all time. Gaming is a topic that I don’t talk much about via our blog. I plan to do more in the future. I though this would be a good opportunity to do so. My choice for today is a bit of a throwback but honest all the same.
This weekend November 17 – 19 is Anime NYC the return of an NYC anime convention after so many years of being “fused” with New York Comic Con. Anime NYC is funded by so many amazing sponsors that we all know because they bring us some of our favorite anime shows and manga, it’s so much anticipation building up for anime NYC that it literally has to give us it’s best A+ game just for the comeback.
Anime NYC has a lot of activities going on and not enough time to enjoy all of it so like every convention I hope you guys get a chance to check out the schedule on the website so you can plan what you want to do early so it’s worth the money and time. Just like any convention, you will gravitate to something that you’ll see on the schedule and probably stay in one spot majority of the day. There are more activities outside of the schedule.
We are working on a lot of posts centered around anime NYC since we’re so excited to see an anime convention come back to New York City. We will spotlight a few of the guests were hoping to see at the convention and some of the premieres happening this weekend are going to be epic.
If you guys are interested in Anime NYC tickets are still on sale for this weekend and if you subscribe to Crunchy Roll you’ll get a $10 discount off your ticket. As of right now, only Friday and Sunday passes are still available either day is still worth checking out Anime NYC.
Soulcial Dreamin’ Entertainment attended New York City Comic Convention in New York at the Jacob K. Javits Center. This year the convention site was much smaller than usual and it usually entails the entire center but due to it being under repair so space was cut short. Anyone who wished to attend this year had to purchase individual day passes which can be expensive if you planned to go all four days. They were not selling weekend passes this year so the convention activities were extended to other sites, Madison Square Garden, Hammerstein Ballroom, Hudson Mercantile, and the New York Public Library.
In the past two years, I’ve had the opportunity to interview some pretty amazing people. I normally, provide a little anecdotal story detailing our introduction. While I can’t recall our initial encounter, I know it was definitely via YouTube. Out of all the interviews, I’ve done, this hands down feels the most personal. This is someone I’ve admired. This is someone I’ve learned from. This is someone who’s looked out for me wanting nothing in return. This is someone I consider a friend.

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.
