Anime NYC Logo

The final con of the season is finally here, I’m excited but exhausted at the same time. We’ve covered so much in the past few months and we’re planning to end this season with a bang. The major question on my mind and hopefully yours as well is, what does Anime NYC have in store this year?

Anime NYC 2018: Morning Musume。’18!

Morning Musume is one of Japan’s biggest idol groups and they still are! Producer Tsunku started the group in 1997 and they are still making music and are as popular as they were when they first debut with more members.

Morning Musume has broken so many records on the Oricon charts. They continue to top their past successes and I’m looking forward to seeing Morning Musume, 18 in concert this weekend.

Soulcial Sunday – NYCC & Week 13 Spotify Playlist

Last weekend was NYCC and AFNYCC (Anime Fest), So that’s 2 cons in one weekend and Alice was the braveheart to go to both from Thursday – Sunday. New York Comic Con wanted to bring back Anime Fest and they did. Lizzo and I only did 1 day at NYCC, we didn’t want to go for an extra day because we both felt like NYCC was becoming too commercial. We usually don’t always agree but that was one that we did and all three of us might not go to NYCC next year because it’s too expensive to buy single passes!

Alice has a few posts about NYCC and AFNYCC coming out this week, it felt like we took a week off last week but work and other things caught up with us because we’ve been putting in so much work with SDE other parts of our lives were getting jealous lol. We enjoy going to conventions to see and meet new people as well as hang with friends but NYCC will most likely not be on our list of cons next year because we do miss the weekend bundle pass and it’s much cheaper to hit the other cons that are just as fun.

Our next convention will be Anime NYC and we’ll be doing press coverage there and we’re super excited about it. Hopefully, Anime NYC fixed their security issues from last year but regardless I will be carrying a smaller camera bag just in case they haven’t. If you don’t remember last years’ Anime NYC or didn’t get the chance to go here’s last year’s Anime NYC Overview.

This is week 13 of our Spotify Playlist and as usual, we hope to be your music plug and introduce you to new artists and new favorite songs.

Steve Conte Panel at J1-Con 2018

I was able to see Steve Conte at J1-Con but it was not what I expected. Steve Conte is an American musician, music producer, guitarist, songwriter, and the lead singer of his own band: Steve Conte NYC. I was hoping to see a concert and here some of his music but, it turned out to be a Q & A panel. It was a very intimate setting and I was able to learn a lot about him and his career. Continue reading
