Rising from the ashes of New York Anime Festival, sponsored by Crunchyroll, Anime NYC kicked off its inagural year this past weekend. I decided to get the VIP pass soon as they came out, although sadly they didn’t get any guests I truly wanted to see. That said it wasn’t a total loss so I’ll give my thoughts on the con and overall experience.
Ok yea I know I haven’t actually attended all 20 years of Otakon, but I’ve attended 5 and somewhere deep inside I was hoping the 20th one would be really awesome. Sadly, it was not. The good news is, at least my camera didn’t fail me!
And so Otakon 2012 has come to an end. I came for Kakihara’s autograph and pretty much mission accomplished so I guess overall it was productive – except for the horrors that is my Kodak Z5120. More on that later though, let’s just start with the con report!
