Heh. Remember when I said I’d have up my Part II report on Wednesday? Yeah. Never mind! Sorry. School’s been a bit of a pain. But! My second report is here, ready and able and willing! Shall be covering Sat of New York Comic Con/Anime Festival!
2011 New York Comic Con/ Anime FestivalCategory
So, It has taken a little longer than i had intended to post about NYCC but I finally have the photos up!
A New York Comic Con/Anime Festival Edition of Anti Social Geniuses Reference Resource Mondays (Part III)
I’ve been doing wrap-up posts on all things New York Comic/Anime Festival. Others have been doing one too. This is the last edition of the special Comic-Con Edition of Reference Resource Mondays. Expect me to go a bit crazy with links next week^^
To say that New York Comic Con/Anime Festival was fairly large is an understatement–as Lance himself announced, this NYC convention pretty much consumed the souls of every single person who went. Their souls probably didn’t return. However, my soul has (temporarily) returned so I can tell you just about everything that happened to me during the four days of New York Comic Con/Anime Festival–all the fun, all the disappointments, and what I can probably expect for next year–in two parts. Part II will be up by Wednesday.
Title: Children Who Chase Lost Voices From Deep Below (Hoshi wo Ou Kodomo)
Genre: Adventure, Fantasy
Publisher: Media Factory (JP) Sentai Filmworks (U.S.)
Director: Makoto Shinkai
Script: Makoto Shinkai
Music Composer: Tenmon
It was on a beautiful Sunday morning after I had met some people I have gotten to know a bit online when I ran towards the IGN Theatre to go see Makoto Shinkai’s Children Who Chase Lost Voices From Deep Below (Hoshi o Ou Kodomo). The director himself spoke to the crowd a bit before we was able to watch the film exclusively–with three large screens I add. I think that might have contributed to my review, but even if it was on a regular screen, I probably would have loved it the same way.
As expected with a convention of this magnitude, there were plenty of announcements–and some were fairly huge! Instead of having individual posts of all the news items, here’s what was announced at the Con floor in one neat post!

And that’s it. It’s all over. The 2011 version of New York Comic Con/ Anime Festival is in the books…in maybe a month. Even with the con over, there will be numerous post-convention coverage. That’s just how big NYCC/AF is, and will probably continue to be. Anyways, I’ll share my thoughts about the con sometime this week, along with other things. But I’ll let the others speak their thoughts before me!
Today was full of a lot of running around. Even though I had a good understanding of the convention center yesterday, it was a lot of trouble actually making my way through the convention center, especially when I was in a group. I guess it’s good to know there are so many fans but it’s a whole other thing to have to walk across a very crowded hallway.
Con update! One thing I’m really having a hard time with is the way Anime Fest feels like it’s banished to the furthest reaches of the con…
There is also, what feels like a decrease in cosplayers. There are still some amazing cosplayers but there doesn’t seem to be that many of them. Well, here is hoping there are more tomorrow.
I stayed late to vote on this years AMV contest. I feel that this year’s comedy vidoes were outstanding!
To get up to the moment photos and updates on what is going on at the con, follow me on twitter @Starclearwaters.
I’m glad by Cosplay is so comfortable it was a rough Second day!
So, the 1st day of NYCC is done. I stopped by a little earlier today. I didn’t have enough time wait for the artist alley and the showroom to open up, but I got to go to two very interesting panels! Besides the panels there really wasn’t much today in day one but it did make it so that I don’t have to wait in a huge line to register tomorrow and that counts as a pro in my book.
Digital Comics in Libraries and Manga in Education. I want to write more about the about the topic of Manga in Education because I find it to be very interesting but for now I’ll just skip it.
The Javits Center is huge. It took me about half an hour to figure out where everything was. This is also because I just have a hard time asking for directions (I refuse to), and I’m horrible at reading maps. Still, I think that now that I have a better understanding about where things are, I’ll enjoy myself a little better.
What are some of the ways people deal with confusing con venues? I find that after a while I just cave and ask a staff member for directions… ^^()
