Okazu/Yuricon New York Comic Con Schedule

October 7th, 2012

It’s time once again for us to squeeze ourselves into the poorly-laid out Javits Center in New York and run from corner to corner following an ever thinner trail of Manga and Anime presence at New York Comic Con.

NYCC has “absorbed” New York Anime Festival…in a Borgian sense, There is still a decent anime/manga presence on the schedule this year. What really got killed dead was last year’s fantastic LGBTQ chunk of programming. This year there’s a big 2 LGBTQ related panels, one about sexuality in comics and Prism-sponsored “Gay Marriage in Comics: Revolutionary or a Step Backwards?”.

First and most important – if I am not anywhere else, you will find me at the Prism Comics booth – Table 1875. Find me there if you can, because I’ll be giving away free Yuri doujinshi as long as supplies last.

Rica Takashima will be at Prism too, signing and sketching on promotional postcards designed for the digital release of Tokyo Love ~ Rica ‘tte Kanji!?. Here are the confirmed times when she’ll be there:

Thursday – 3 – 4 pm
Saturday – 4 – 5 pm

We’ll have Friday and Sunday times as soon as Prism gets back to us.

If I’m not at the Prism booth, you might want to look for me over at the JManga booth – Table 856.

The panels and events I’ll be attending are:

JManga Panel on the Future of Digital Manga
Saturday, October 13
4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Location: 1A07

Vertical Presents Moyoco Anno Panel
 Date: Saturday, October 13
11:00 am – 12:00 pm
Location: 1A06

Rose of Versailles anime premier and Susan Napier’s discussion of Rose of Versailles:
Saturday, October 13
12:15 pm – 1:15 pm
Location: 1A04

Vertical, Yen Press, Viz, Kodansha and Funimation all have booths and, I presume panels, but generally industry panels are of little interest to me and every blogger in the anime/manga sphere will attend those hoping to be the first to break the news of…whatever, so I’ll be skipping them.

I will update Rica’s signing sessions asap. We hope to see you there!

  1. REALLY would LOVE to see and hear about their deal on “same sex marriage in manga” since I write same sex marriages into my romances prolifically almost to the point of universality!

    Wish I could go, but it just isn’t possible [sad eyes]

    Best wishes!
