Welcome back my friends, you have arrived at Part 2 of my Day One exploration of the first-ever Anime NYC convention which was taking over a part of the Javits Center this weekend. If you want to have a handy means of seeing all posted chapters for the event just click THIS LINK as it will open a new tab on your browser with anything that was posted about the convention. So I’ve admitted my relatively ingenue status with Anime and Manga but that being said let’s get back into the mix and have some fun. I’ll chime in when and if its necessary.
The tenured readers of the PiercingMetal website know just how much we love to attend the Pop Culture conventions and share our narrative and visual findings here with the masses. We’ve been attending the New York Comic Con since 2010 and the Toy Fair since 2011 and the interested can click the highlighted text to peruse any narratives that are tagged for them. This post will begin a new series of coolness that I am so excited to share with you as this year, the folks at Leftfield Media have launched the first ever “Anime NYC” Convention. Last year I attended the first NYC based Liberty City Anime Convention (discussed HERE) and while I am not the biggest study of Anime and Manga presentations, I do love me some cosplayer creativity and related geek stuff so let’s get this adventure started.
Hey so remember a couple of months ago when I did a post about the first-ever “Anime NYC” convention that was going to happen in November next year? If you are shaking your head or are among our newer readers, the news was broadcast on THIS LINK so please check it out before we continue. Okay, so the other day they announced that the tickets for this sure to be massive anime and manga event were on sale to the general public. Check it out and I’ll return at the close with some thoughts.
