When it comes to anime conventions in New York City, the biggest event that always comes to mind is New York Comic Con at the Javits Center. Of course, NYCC wasn’t always dedicated to Japanese manga and anime. From 2007 through 2009, New York Anime Fest was its own separate convention. The Fest later merged with NYCC in 2010, and gave New York’s comic event the anime and manga feel that it so proudly holds today. But now a newcomer is coming to Manhattan: Anime NYC is headed to the Big Apple in 2017.
