New York Anime Festival 2009 – Pre party – Cake pics..

September 26, 2009 3 comments

At this part of the city, within the Jacob Javis this weekend, New York Anime Festival 2009 is happening. Now backtrack to the evening before that, there was Del Rey co-sponsored event with NYAF for a Pre-convention party at Dave & Busters. It was Del Rey’s 5th year Anniversary, and yes, there was a cake sponsored by Ace of Cakes from Food Network. What was funny also was that right across the street, Cold Stone Creamery was having an event as well, where there was free ice-cream for a donation. However, because the lines were massive for that one, I did not try to go for that ice cream event, but saw a Female Wrestler Maria at that event. Have pictures, but because in the heat of NYAF at the moment, will have to fix them when I am done with the con. >_<

Back to the Pre-party, waaay too many people, just people snapping pictures of other people actually. Got pictures of the cake before the cutting, from two perspectives, and then the Katana as it left the building. Also got other interesting pictures like the drink menu, and some samples.. courtesy of Twitter’s @reika and friends.

If you didn’t know it already, the cake was cut with a katana. This was acknowledge via Twitter..

Rumor is we’re cutting the #NYAF Pre-Party Cake with a katana. See if it’s true on 9/24!


We have the sword! We’ll be cutting the Ace of Cakes cake with a katana from Dragon Song! See their booth at #NYAF!

Bumped into Omo and Moritheil….and several more people.. and that was an interesting evening.

I had a tiny taste of the cake and thought it was too sweet…. Moritheil, I recall had some observations of how the waiters got mobbed and then some.. cake ran out as well. Would he recap this experience, who knows.. but that is experience of yours truly..

Couldn’t get a picture of when the cake was exactly cut, but perhaps there will be other sites that actually have pictures up? Also because of my photography skills, the pictures might be or be not good, but the lighting was also not an ideal situation.

Probably will end up throwing pictures up on Flickr when I have time to fix then.. so stay tune or not.. ^_^

Well trying to cram as much text here as possible. I take lots of notes, and as a former reporter from my college paper, I am pretty back log in cleaning up photos from the event, shows how much I am more of a writer, than I am an picture fixer. I will provide links to the AnimeJutsu galleries as soon as I finish and upload those pictures. Warning in advance, that I will be jumping all over the place. This post is a complete recap now that the con is over and done with. Read more…

Recapping now. Well this is a prep work for my con report for JLHLS, when the con is over. That will be a more professional reporting style writing… this entry is for a personal emotion feel, and as a fan girl to just gush over some things – that would be rude. Read more…

NYAF 2008 panels..

September 10, 2008 Leave a comment

Oh there is actual panels listed now regarding about NY Anime Festival, if anyone is going. Here‘s also a handy grid.

What I am listing below are panels that I am interested in going. Unfortunately I’ll only make it to NYAF on full days for Friday and Sunday and Saturdays after 5pm. So these are panels I am interested in. On a side note… I really would love to go to the Anime Blogging panel on Saturday, but have a class that I am taking from 10am to 4pm, hence my lateness in attending NYAF. So if there are any anime bloggers, who are attending this, panel at NYAF…any information if any? Read more…
