NARUTO IS PLANNING ON INVADING NYAF YET AGAIN!

I wasn't able to attend last year which was kinda sad cuz that was t he first time I missed it since I started cosplaying so I'm planning on attending next year..lol so I just thought I'd post yet another convention that I'm planning on attending..lol


Now I know what some of you might be thinking...is he planning on taking anyone?, has he made reservations?...who is he taking with him?..is he driving?

well my aunt works for Air Canada and she will be providing me with 2 plane tickets..unfortunately i can only take one which is kinda sad..and reservations will be made sometime this week...so if any of you remember my last thread about the game...well theres another game being planned right now..and lets just say that the winner of this game can come with me! lol

so pretty much the winner of this game will accompany me to the NYAF with all expenses paid for

so long story short keep an eye out for the up coming game thread!

WHAT IS THE NEW YORK ANIME FESTIVAL?
The New York Anime Festival is an annual anime convention held at the Jacob K. Javits Center in Midtown Manhattan. It features exclusive and extensive anime screenings, guests from America and Japan, manga, cosplay, video games, live-action Japanese cinema, fashion, food, and the cultural treasures that gave birth to Japanese pop culture.

Ooh I might come for that, if I can get away from teaching then. I've wanted to go back to New York for ages, and it always falls through for one reason or another. I would be tempted to drive though... hmm... Damn school and my inability to plan in advance.

New York is actually not as bad as the rumors make it out to be....provided you don't meander around Central Park when it's nighttime. Laughing

Sounds interesting, but I think I may have hit my convention quota with my current set of plans. ^^;

So since you've been to this one before, how is it? ^^

Cha I know what you mean. o_O I'm pushing my own envelope this year as well and I think some tough decisions need to be made to my schedule for fear of my wallet's life. T.T Let's see, I've got seven different cons on the scheduler right now.

New York is awesome to visit though, I go each year to converge with some friends and carpool to Otakon. ^^
