Pre-Anime NYC 2018: Don’t Stop!! Anime NYC-kun!

(note: No Type-Moon Weekly News Round Up
or All Points Bulletin this week.)

The sophomore year of Anime NYC is going all out by bringing over the main character from the 1983 anime classic Stop!! Hibari-kun! I suppose that Toru Furuya might also be known by weirdos for his roles as Amuro RayTuxedo Mask, or Pegasus Seiya but those are roles that he did to kill time while he was not voicing Kosaku Sakamoto. No matter who you know him as, Toru Furuya is a remarkable convention guest.

Anime NYC has a great lineup beyond what we could have hoped for: manga artists, directors, and illustrators as well as premiere screenings and concerts. Might it surpass its spectacular first year!?
