The Anime NYC Convention for 2021 begins today and will take over the Javits Center for three full days of Manga-tastic fun and loads of Japanese culture where this medium has come from. The Media High Command HQ of PiercingMetal and Ken Pierce Media have attended this particular convention since its launch in 2017 and we are stoked to be returning once again. If you’ve read the site before today you know full well that we’ve covered the event on all these occasions and loaded up our Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube profiles with content related to the happening. Be sure to follow us on those things so we can take you along with us on this years adventure if you are not able to attend.

So in the past I’ve generally left posts like this locked in terms of leaving any readership comments but this time around it’s open for those who might be planning on attending one or all three days some topical commentary. Heck, you can even let us know how you are finding it all as the event progresses. Remember that you will need to show proof of vaccination with an ID. See you all there 🙂

The famed New York Comic Con has returned to the Halls of Javits after the pandemic forced the 2020 event to be postponed and go virtual for their “Metaverse” online experience. This years event will be following and enforcing strict Covid-19 protocols and require all attendees to be masked and not just with their respective cosplays. I am excited to announce that PiercingMetal will once more be among the members of the press exploring the floor and bringing the experience to your desktops or mobile devices if you have not decided to join this time around or are too far away.
