New York Anime Festival 2009 is this Friday-Sunday, September 25-27, and it’s going to be the final NYAF before the thing merges with New York Comic Con to form a nerd Vegetto (or Chouryuujin, depending on your tastes). The advantage/disadvantage of NYAF is that there isn’t a whole lot to do all the time, but when there is it’s really, really worth it.
These are the events I’ll be trying to attend, as per the schedule.
Yoshiyuki Tomino Keynote @ Panel Room 4 (1A21) 5:15pm – 6:15pm
Aniplex @ Panel Room 4 (1A21) 6:30pm – 7:30pm
Cencoroll @ ANA Theater (1A08-12) 9:00pm – 9:30pm
Del Rey Manga @ Panel Room1 (1A24) 11:00am-12:00pm
Yoshiyuki Tomino Q&A @ Panel Room 4 (1A21) 1:45pm-2:45pm
Blogger Roundtable @ Panel Room 4 (1A21) 8:00pm-9:00pm
State of the Anime and Manga Industries @ Panel Room 1(1A24) 1:30pm-2:30pm
CPM Retrospective @ Panel Room 4 (1A21) 3:00pm-4:00pm
Anime Recruitment @ Panel Room 3 (1A22) 4:00pm-5:00pm
I’ll also be trying to catch any Starcraft matches during the WCG USA finals.
Also don’t forget to catch me on the Anime Bloggers Roundtable panel on Saturday from 8pm-9pm. I’ll be there along with Ani-Gamers, Reverse Thieves, Comics Worth Reading, Anime Vice, Subatomic Brainfreeze, Anime Almanac, The Gaming Dungeon, About.com: Manga, and Super Amazing Number One, there to discuss this fine art we call anime blogging. There’s a structure to the whole thing, but it’ll still probably be fairly free-form.
Look forward to it!
