(note: No Type-Moon Weekly News Round Up or All Points Bulletin this week)
13 years of AnimeNext have taken the convention from a humble little affair in the Crowne Plaza Meadowlands to one of the biggest anime convention on the East coast. There is rarely a year without a wonderful lineup of Japanese guests. This time being no exception with the likes of FLOW and Studio Trigger in the house.
Also as fans of their panel selection they have more than enough for us to do all weekend. In fact, we will be participating in five panels this year. Join us this weekend in Somerset, New Jersey!
We got panels, be sure to attend!
