DAY TWO Dec 8, 2007.

And what a difference a day makes. The NY Anime Festival was able to handle a large influx of attendees so fast, that before we knew it, the floor was packed with the Otaku masses, sporting some of the most intense cosplay sostumes we’ve seen in quite a while (and we were left to wonder; did they wear that on the Subway on their way here?).

The face of あ!PON is who you'll be graded against when you're trying out for Comcast's Tokyo Reporter 2008. Our very own T.T. wishes everyone the best of luck, and says the most important thing is to not be afraid and just be yourself! 皆さん、がんばるしよ!

John O’Donnell of Central Park Media reminded us that while it’s been a while, the NY Anime Festival was not the first anime convention in New York City, and that the way things are looking the NY Anime Festival is going to be around for quite a while. Remember to support the show and pick up your t-shirt, or our personal favorite item, the saké set.

Although somewhat controversial if you ask, the World Cosplay Summit contest was a popular event at here, and that’s probably because the winners are going to get a free trip to Japan to represent the USA in the World Cosplay finals. Good luck to the winners.
