Last weekend was LCAC 2018 and it was a blast! This year we’ve met some new people as well as seeing some new musicians perform. We were given the opportunity to do press coverage again this year and with that, we have a lot of footage and photos to sort through. This year LCAC, in my opinion, was a little lacking compared to the year before. Yes, the con was fun but it didn’t live up to being better than the year before. I really hope LCAC 2019 will pick up the ball next year and be an even better con than this year.
This year J-MUSIC Ensemble performs at LCAC again! We loved their performance the last 2 years and they’ll be gracing the main stage again. The live music they provide is one of the best qualities to their performances as well as the renditions anime and game theme songs we’ve grown up on. The nostalgia makes me love seeing J-MUSIC Ensemble perform. J-MUSIC Ensemble hits the stage Sunday, August 19th at 2:30pm, the last music performance right before the closing ceremony.

The past two years of LCAC we have seen Reni Reni and this year she comes back to LCAC. Reni’s music is so energizing I can see why she would be a fan favorite because she is one of the only acts I’ve seen that actually go into the audience and interact. The past performances we’ve caught will be below but this post was written by Lizzo for our 2016 press coverage of LCAC and Reni’s performance. Reni is set to perform at LCAC 2018 Sunday, August 19 at 11am, be sure to catch her performance if you’re at LCAC this weekend. I’ll also link a few videos of her music and performances.

In 2016 I covered 2une at LCAC and it was such a great performance and we also saw them perform last year. 2une has been together for 3 years now and Sneko and Uno seem to still be going strong even though they haven’t uploaded any new music in a while their songs are still catchy. They were so cute during their performances so this year because they are switching it up by performing with Ari.Ki. The performance is on Friday, August 17 at 1:30pm in the main event area.

Sam & Bill is a comedy music duo that I’ve never heard of until I checked out the Liberty City Anime Con guest list and came across Sam & Bill. I watched a few videos and honestly this has to be an 18+ event at LCAC, just off the comedy videos they have on their youtube. This will be a first for me to sit in a comedy music act with this type of content and judging from the videos they are pretty funny. Sam & Bill remind me of Lonely Island, it’s a similar concept on the music part but completely different which makes me want to check them out. I love Lonely Island and I’m pretty interested now to check Sam & Bill out and see what they will do for LCAC. Continue reading →
This weekend in NYC Liberty City Anime Convention will be taking place in Times Square and it will be jammed packed with tourists, new yorkers, and my personal favorite cosplayers. As we set into the weekend this week we have posts lined up for our press coverage of LCAC. The team has been preparing and working hard deciding on what to cover and the heat and possible thunderstorms happening this weekend. LCAC will be held in the Marriott Marquis Times Square same hotel as last year and I’m going to assume the main events will be held in the Edison Ballroom as last year since everything worked out perfectly space wise.
We’re back from our long weekend at Liberty City Anime Con in Times Square. It was so much fun this year around that we got to actually go to more events and panels this time. We have a lot to put up this week so look out for our new posts, videos and photos from this past weekend. This year was much better than last and I’m happy to see LCAC stepping up their game this time.
Next year dates are already set for August 17 – 19, 2018. The live concerts this year were just as great as they were the year before, hopefully a new lineup of events so we can get more variety at this con next time around.
Once again we will have new content coming this week and we’ll be sure to let you guys know. Thank You for supporting us and helping us get this far.
Dream Fearlessly, Live Extraordinary
Here’s a few post from last years Liberty City Anime Con:
This weekend August 18th – 20th is Liberty City Anime Con 2017. Third year running as New York City’s largest anime convention located in the heart of NYC Times Square Marriott Hotel. Last year we attended LCAC 2016 for the first time and it did have its ups and downs but it was a really fun experience with meeting new people and the awesome dealers selling their merchandise.
Starting tomorrow we will be participating in the 30 Day Anime Challenge we saw a post made by Jill on humble otakus opinion and we decide it would be fun to participate with her. Check out her website you will be entertained.
We hope many of you reading will think about doing this challenge.
Today we will be at the Bad Boy Reunion Concert and will have photos uploaded later on. I will be a phoneographer tonight my Note 7 will be the best it can be.
