New York, NY – Oct 22, 2010 — Pictures from the New York Anime Festival / Comic Con 2010 have been uploaded to the Anime-Pulse photo gallery: http://picasaweb.google.com/animepulse/NYAFComicCon2010#
This year the New York Anime Festival and the New York Comic Con conventions were combined into one weekend resulting in an enormous turn out. The two conventions filled the entire Javits Center with comic book vendors, anime vendors, screening rooms, panels, and probably the largest artists alley either show had seen in the past. There were several guests from Japan including the Boom Boom Satellites, who had an autograph session at the Kinokuniya booth. They are probably best known with anime fans from doingthe opening theme song to X’amd: Lost Memories. There was also a large turn out from the gaming industry. Microsoft brought the Kinect for Con goers to try out. Over all the combined conventions had more than anyone could see all of in one weekend. If this combination happens again next year, I strongly recomend you attend.

I was there but it didn’t feel like a NYAF/NYCC combo, it felt like NYAF was being suppressed by NYCC. There were no signs that told you that NYAF and NYCC were both being celebrated. The anime-related booths were forced into a corner where everyone was almost literally on top of each other. I felt like anime wasn’t important any more.
