It's gonna be sweet!
YOI is gonna be the death of me...
I really enjoyed Anime NYC (Friday). Hoping you folks do it again next year as well.
I went to both Friday and Saturday and it was great. The host during the masquerade event after a few good seconds of suspense, at the end of the event said that they will see us next year so that is pretty official.
Bored :( Recommend something please <3
In terms of announcing things, convention panels are oficially dead.
I can use online forums, whether you like it or not.
AnimeNYC was super fun — thanks Crunchyroll for hosting!
There were a few moments I wanted to capture for posterity (such as the story of #2 below which will go in a frame with the signed poster), so while I was reminiscing I figured I'd share some of them. Top 10 countdown.
#10 – All the cosplayers who worked so hard to make the weekend special. Well done!
#9 – Depleting Bandai Visual's CD stock first day, first hour. Priorities!
#8 – Yuri and Viktor Nendoroids - yeah!
#7 – Spotting an Archer F/SN cosplayer far more handsome than the original.
#6 – The Friday night panel "Anime Sports for the Fujoshi". Just fun! Enough said.
#5 – The happy energy of Sokichi Shimooka, Idolish7 Project's Executive Producer. He has that idol sparkle.
#4 – The welcome video the Idolish7 voice actors recorded, which was presented to the audience before the viewing/panel started. Adorable! ♥
#3 – Naruyoshi Kikuchi's Gundam Thunderbolt jam session. Outstanding performances by Ai Kuwabara (piano) and Akira Yamada (drums)!
#2 – Autograph session with Kaz Haruna, producer for Infini-T Force. His assistant asked which character was my favorite. Without hesitation, I pointed to Damian Gray. Haruna-san seemed surprised and asked if I actually watched the show - "Yes, every week! I love Damian Gray's voice actor Daisuke Hirakawa." I then proceeded with my best impersonation of "Ta-ke-shi!"
#1 – Yoshi Sakamoto singing "The Dreaming Girl in Me" at the Gundam Thunderbolt concert. Her performance ended the weekend on such a sweet note.
I missed out on attending the Anime Diva Night Hi-Touch Session. Did anyone attend it? When was it scheduled?
