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.
Last year all we really did was attend the concerts because most of the panels we wanted to check out were cancelled or no shows, hopefully with this years full schedule there will be less cancellations. We were fortunate enough to interview Patrick Bartley Jr. from J-MUSIC Ensemble. Hopefully this year we can get a few more interviews and more content since this year should be bigger and better than last.
We have our passes and hope you and your friends got yours if not you can purchase your tickets here. For those who already purchased their tickets remember badge pickup starts at 10AM on Friday and Thursday 5PM – 7PM for those who did early registration. We look forward to meeting some of you that are going to be at Liberty City Anime Con just let us know on our twitter if you want to meet up with us.
Here’s a few post we did about last years Liberty City Anime Con:
Another is an anime based on a Manga and Novel written by Yukito Ayatsuji. This anime will screw with your head from beginning to end, trying to figure out why all of this is occurring. There is a lot of violence and gore which I do not recommend for the light-hearted. This is a good horror series. It will shock you when you least expect it. This story takes many turns and there are lots of plot twists that will leave you baffled.
I have two cats and I thought learning about Japanese folklore would be interesting, so I went the Supernatural Cats of Japan panel at Anime Next. In Japan, there are many different urban legends about cats and yokai. And many of these stories derive from events and have been passed down for generations.
We want to wish you all a Happy New Year! We can’t even put into words how much your support means to us and how we have really pushed through the horror of 2016 together. We really want to thank all you from the bottom of our hearts for keeping us going on this vision we have, seeing people take interest in what we do makes us keep fighting to make this dream of our come true.

Day 1: What was the very frist Anime you watched?
My first anime was Speed Race I honestly can’t say i know it word for word but i do remember it.
Speed Racer was always on when i was a kid so it’s just what I watched to be entertained. I used to always laugh at how the movements of the characters mouths were way off from what was being said.
My mother introduced me to the original japanese version when she bought the bootleg dvd off the street with the original name for speed racer Mach GoGoGo. I’ve learned to read fast becuase of speed racer. The funny thing is I didnt even know most of the words at 5 years old I just went along with them and failed speaking the japanese I learned since i watch the dvd often.
I can say that life lesson i learned from Speed Racer is to never give up no matter what happens in the race, as cheesy as that sounds til this day I will always have a spot in my heart for the anime that started my love for watching anime.
