Anime NYC is New York City’s anime convention! A showcase of the best of Japanese pop culture in the biggest city in America, Anime NYC brings anime fans and publishers together for three days of unique exhibits, exclusive screenings, extensive panels, and appearances by some of the biggest creators in Japan. Join us for a celebration of Japanese animation, manga, and cosplay in the heart of NYC!
Anime NYC is a creation of LeftField Media, a boutique event company made up of dedicated fans and experienced convention organizers.

We pick up manga at Kinokuniya, shop at Sunrise Mart, and snap far too many pictures at Sakura Matsuri. We’ve gone to premieres at JAPAN CUTS and saw Hatsune Miku in concert… three times. We love anime like you, live in NYC like you, and now bring all this together for you.
Anime NYC is a party, a market, and a festival; a dedicated showcase of Japanese popular culture; and a space for the anime and manga community to call our own.
