Speakers interested in presenting an anime-themed panel should submit their information into NYCC's online submission tool and artists looking to set up with anime-inspired art should apply to NYCC's Artist Alley now. Panel submission information is located here, and Artist Alley applications can be found online at this link.
Going back to guests, NYCC's resolve to welcome top Japanese entertainment names remains. In the past, NYCC has played host to Japanese guests including T.M. Revolution, Takashi Miike, Junko Takeuchi, Makoto Shinkai, Dai Sato, Minori Chihara, Yoshiki, VAMPS, Puffy AmiYumi and Boom Boom Satellites. These are the type of guests that NYCC will continue to showcase. And, looking to the show floor, anime and manga publishers already signed up for NYCC 2012 include FUNimation Entertainment and Vertical, Inc.
We continue to be marveled at the vibrancy and excitement of the anime audience, and we'll continue to be transforming a little bit of New York City into Tokyo, but now we'll be doing so under the New York Comic Con flag -- and as we starting making NYCC's overall guest announcements this month, we'll have anime news coming coon. To get it, keep on reading this blog or follow New York Comic Con on Facebook or Twitter.
