AnimeNYC 2019 Review: My Mixed Thoughts

About the Con:

AnimeNYC 2019 already finished its third year! This event took place on November 15th-November 17th in the same location, the Javits Center. According to AnimeNYC, about 40,000 people attended in 2019—twice the amount of people who attended back in 2017 The con has grown exponentially, with no signs of stopping anytime soon.

The con had a vibe similar to a trade show, with large posters advertising the latest mobile games and television screens above showcasing new anime. The series Fate Stay Night especially had a heavy presence throughout the convention, in part due to the popularity of the app. With this in mind, there were a few companies that did pass out flyers advertising their latest games or products in the Exhibitor Hall. But companies were courteous of attendees and were not pushy, only handing them out to folks who looked interested.

The Exhibitor Hall was certainly a focal point of the event. In the years I’ve been attending cons, I have never seen an Exhibitor Hall of this scale. The dealers were combined with artists and gaming this year–my thoughts on that will come shortly.

I have gotten into the habit of going to smaller cons lately and it’s a pretty huge contrast. The con did not have as intimate of a feel to it, with less time to stop and chat with friends due to the sheer size of the venue. At the same time, there is a lot of major events going on, which really made the weekend fly by. I left the event wanting a bit more to do (there was plenty of interesting panels each day)…though I felt pretty exhausted once Sunday rolled around.
