The New York Anime Fest kicks off today, and we haven’t given this NEARLY the kind of buildup we should have, but it should be a lot of fun. The move from December has definitely given it a better slot, but more conflicts with other shows (like Balitmore Comic-Con and Yaoi Con.)

But this is still a big show. Major guests include Yoshitaka Amano (above), goth Lolita clothing designers Baby, The Stars Shine Bright, horror novelist Hideyuki Kikuchi, voice actress Rie Tanaka, and many more who you can see here.

There are parties. There are panels. Contests! …and all kinds of tie-in events. Oh, and concerts. If we weren’t going to Baltimore, we’d be there.


  1. This shall be my first anime/manga convention.

    No agenda, just going to enjoy the energy! Oh, I’ll try the Vampire Hunter D cocktail at the after party, but everything else is just FUN!

  2. I’m going to be at this con, I have an artist alley table and will have some comic books for sale as well as art prints cards and book marks. Come by my table is your around. Just look for the banner that says Section 8 Comics.
