Anime NYC Haul

On Friday, Andrew and I went to Anime NYC at the Javits Center and I can honestly say it was the best anime convention I’ve ever been to.  We went the first year when the convention was just launching and while it was fun, it still hadn’t been what I was hoping for.  Last year, we were busy and unable to attend, but we decided to give it another go this year.  I am so glad we did! I’ve been disappointed by the majority of anime conventions I’ve attended throughout the course of my life so I didn’t have high expectation for Anime NYC.  I’ve always wished that the East Coast would have an anime convention like SakuraCon in Seattle or AnimeExpo in LA.  In the old days of NYCC, there was an anime portion of the convention but it was shoved up a little escalator away from the exhibit floor and didn’t warrant visiting.  I was shocked to discover how much the con floor expanded at Anime NYC this year and how many incredible artists the show attracted.  Since we hadn’t budgeted any money toward purchases at this convention, I tried to be good but I did end up with some new artwork.  I can 100% confirm that Andrew and I will be going back next year!

    I’m still so grateful that you picked up that print for me! <3 But also, I'm glad Anime NYC was so much fun this year, and you've definitely made me want to go again next year (since I only went the one time).
