Little Tokyo in New York: The New York Comic-Con 2012 Report

Danny Choo and Yu Asakawa at New York Comic-Con 2012

Last weekend, we had the pleasure of attending New York Comic-Con 2012. It was jam-packed as 116,000 attendees explored every nook and cranny of the Jacob Javits Center. While the anime/manga presence was extremely limited compared to previous years, notable guests such as Danny Choo, Yu Asakawa, Yoshitaka Amano, Moyoco Anno, Masakazu Ishiguro, and Masakazu Katsura all graced the bright lights of New York. Check out some photos taken at the convention by our own Tony Yao.

Who said Japanese pop culture was dead in NYCC? The spirit of New York Anime Festival still lives on! Things are going to be really interesting for next year’s NYCC on the Japanese side of things. We can’t wait.

We did a couple of video interviews with Yu Asakawa and Danny Choo and hoping to have them up soon! Stay tuned!
