AnimeNEXT 2015: The Convention for Lowlifes Who Will Never Amount to Anything


(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.
