Our CONVENTION SEASON, as well as our appearance at the inaugural ANIMENYC, has come to an end but boy it was a BLAST!
Saturday AM has attended COMICON type events in the past such as Animazement and Heroescon but this summer marked a significant shift for us as we attended bigger conventions in major cities.
CRUNCHYROLL EXPO was the first con from the anime-streaming service and gave Saturday AM an opportunity to meet fans on the West Coast of the United States. Likewise, AnimeNYC was an opportunity for us to meet fans in the most dynamic city in the world, the Big Apple – aka New York!
Left Field Media put on both shows but AnimeNYC was really special as the guests, premieres (including FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST film debut), and crowds were as diverse and as exciting as Saturday AM aspires to be. We were once again left shorthanded as demand for Saturday AM content (books, prints, and exclusive subscription packages) were sold out by the third day of the show.
