Day II

Day Two of the New York Anime Festival featured lots of great costumes, competitions, crowds and celebrities! Saturday is definitely the day where NYAF gets its main audience, and those who showed up for day two got to end the day with a treat of a masquerade. This year did not feature the World Cosplay Summit, but the show turned out to be a great one regardless. Read on for more details!

The crowds were everywhere on day 2, and at some points I wondered how well it would fare when NYAF and Comic-con join forces next year. It'll be insanity, but perhaps insanity in a good way. The best costumes appeared today, with people coming in dressed in a range of characters from original and out-of-print series to the current hot shows. I even saw quite a few game, american cartoon, and 'net meme cosplayers. For me, the one that took the cake was a nearly 10-foot tall BumbleBee (of transformers fame) who even came with working lights and a functional loudspeaker. It was awe-inspiring. Check out our gallery for photos of that and all the other awesome costumes we saw!

There were all sorts of competitions and events going

Summary


Day One for the New York Anime Fest can be easily summed up with four words, "Sales, Sillyness & Sushi Poppers!" Being the first day of the con, many vendors were offering a significant sale on their wares. And being Friday for a small con in a big city, the crowd was spread out enough that you could easily navigate the dealer's hall. The usual anime crowd was full of silliness. And sushi-poppers, man, let me tell you about sushi poppers. Some enterprising vendor is actually handing out their new invention, Sushi Poppers. It's like a push-pop, only full of sushi. Made fresh daily, he assured me they'd be free of preservatives and stored well. On the other hand, I can assure you that they're delicious and freaking awesome. It's a little inappropriate to spend this much of a review focused around a single item, but it's sushi on a stick, I can't help myself! (picture after the jump)

Event organisers at Reed Exhibitions have comfirmed that New York Comic Con and New York Anime Festival will share the same date and location next year. The events, which will take place at the Jacob K. Javits Center in Midtown Manhattan on October 8-10, 2010, will feature separate guests and programming schedules, but share a common show floor and one ticket price. This means fans who purchase a ticket will have access to both events.

The 2010 announcement comes two weeks before the event returns to the Javits Center for a third time on September 25-27.

In its four years of existence, New York Comic Con has been mostly held in February, although it moved to April last year. Lance Fensterman, Vice President of the Reed Exhibitions Pop Culture Group, explained that the date move will better accommodate Reed's other major North American pop culture event, Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo. "We are launching the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo (C2E2) in April 2010, and we have moved NYCC to a permanent October date, thus providing a spring and fall balance to these two key events which will remain in place as we move forward. Rather than create a
