I went to a panel at Liberty City Anime Convention, where they discussed anime series from the 1980’s. I thought that this was going to be an interesting panel and it was. The panelist, John Medero, mainly talked about series from the year 1987 which was a big year in anime history. Some really great series came out that year but, he also discussed other popular anime series from the late and early 1980’s and where are they now 30 years later. It made me think of how anime has changed over the years.
The J-MUSIC Ensemble is an 8 piece band consisting of drums, keyboard, bass, guitar and a horn section with two trumpets, a trombone, and saxophone. Best described through their slogan: Jazz meets J-Pop. Which essentially, is what they do. Think-polished Jazz musicians, tackling Japanese Popular Music with the horns taking the fore front, at times standing in as substitution for the human voice. Though at times, the human voice is still included because there is nothing quite like it. Overall, bringing a new perspective to the world of Japanese Music.
Professor Shyguy is well known for his 8 bit- music, soulful, electro-rocking, theatrical nerd pop music. Most of his songs stem from video games, anime, and time and space. I missed the concert last year and was able to see his performance this year. I came in thier not knowing what type of music I was going to listen to. I thought it was another rock concert but I was wrong. Professor Shyguy really surprised me, he was really good.
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.
We’re back from our long weekend at Liberty City Anime Con in Times Square. It was so much fun this year around that we got to actually go to more events and panels this time. We have a lot to put up this week so look out for our new posts, videos and photos from this past weekend. This year was much better than last and I’m happy to see LCAC stepping up their game this time.
Next year dates are already set for August 17 – 19, 2018. The live concerts this year were just as great as they were the year before, hopefully a new lineup of events so we can get more variety at this con next time around.
Once again we will have new content coming this week and we’ll be sure to let you guys know. Thank You for supporting us and helping us get this far.
Dream Fearlessly, Live Extraordinary
Here’s a few post from last years Liberty City Anime Con:
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.

This was another concert we attended while at Liberty City Anime Convention. Prior to the concert, I have never heard of her. So here is a little background information.
Reni Mimura is a Japanese born singer who’s stage name is ReniReni. After releasing her first CD in 2006 she later relocated to New York City in 2008 to pursue a career in the Western Market. ReniReni is considered to be Leader of the Moe/ Kawaii Revolution. Another acclaim to fame being her performance of Chiwawa in Ubisoft Just Dance 2016 video game.
The team and I recently attended the Liberty City Anime Convention in New York City. For the sake of tradition, we always try and attend at least one concert while attending a convention. This time around we had the opportunity to attend the Psyche Corporation show.
