SMBFC visits the NY Anime Festival


Way back in September, 2008, Crivelliman packed up his girlfriend and went on up to New York City to take part (however brief) in the NY Anime Festival.

Having absolutely zero background in the field of Anime, Manga, Japanimation, Ani-Mondays, or whatever superviolent, big-eyed porn cartoons happen to spring out of pop culture, I’m not one to let a little thing like ignorance stand in the way of completely tearing down entire franchises. As far as this whole experience is concerned, I was just like any other pop-culture reporter, looking to scoop a big handful of truth out of this gig. I asked my buddy Tim about the genre, and he told me, “If you know ‘Yaoi’ [pronounced “Yow-ie!”], you know Anime.” With this as my only background information, I grabbed my press pass and soldiered down to the floor of the Javits Center. Share in the adventure here.
