Anime NYC powered by Crunchyroll, New York’s largest dedicated anime convention, returns to the Javits Center with an expansive and diverse celebration of anime and Japanese culture from Friday, November 16 through Sunday, November 18, 2018. Show attendees can expect much more from Anime NYC this year – more exclusive screenings; iconic creators and industry leaders; the latest in Japanese gaming technology; and show-stopping performances from Japan’s hottest stars.

LeftField Media has also expanded the scope and offerings in partnership with international animation and manga publishers including Aniplex, Bandai Namco, Crunchyroll, Denpa, Kodansha, Sentai Filmworks, Vertical, VIZ Media, and Yen Press. More companies direct from Japan including Studio Trigger, King Records, and Pony Canyon will take over double the hall space to accommodate additional programming this year.

In addition to the above Anime NYC is proud to host guests from Japan’s famed creative animation studio Studio TRIGGER. Studio TRIGGER is regarded as one of the most stylish and creative animation studios in Japan, with its titles including Kill la Kill, Space Patrol Luluco, Kiznaiver, Little Witch Academia, Inferno Cop, and DARLING in the FRANXX. Studio TRIGGER guests Hiromi Wakabayashi, Shigeto Koyama, and Mayumi Shintani will be featured in two panel discussions over the course of the weekend, in addition to special fan autograph sessions and exclusive collaboration merchandise

Finally the Hammerstein Ballroom will also be used by Anime NYC as they expand outside of the Javits Center for new special performances as a part of the show, including the first ever Anisong World Matsuri concert in NYC, featuring headlining Japanese pop stars Luna Haruna, Shoko Nakagawa, Morning Musume?’18, and New York native nano.
