Pre-Anime NYC 2019: Yeah, You Know Me! Who’s Down With Anime NYC?

hisui_icon_4040_round Last year I wondered if Anime NYC could top 2017. Well, I can easily say that this year just smoked 2018 without much effort. We have movie premieres, Boichi, a ton of interesting anime and manga guests, and JAM Project. Plus the author of Today’s Menu for the Emiya Family, a Lord El-Melloi II’s Case Files event, and the Fate/Grand Order Tour. Oh, and mother flipping Yoshiyuki Tomino. Yoshiyuki Tomino.  This is an Anime Expo or Japan Expo line up.

The fact that I did not even mention that Rie Kugimiya was making her big US debut here should tell you how much there is do here. I can’t wait to just dive into this craziness.
