PiercingMetal Thoughts: Whew. I thought I didn’t really know much about Anime and Manga when I started typing this list and now I am convinced that I need some serious tutoring. I guess I have some time until my visit to the Liberty City Anime Con where I will be surrounded by Cosplayers dressed as many of these characters. That convention is much different from the NY Comic Con where I actually know who the characters are and much of their backstory. Oh well, I guess you can’t be an expert at everything right? Okay, so hit their website and cast your vote because you should still have some time to do it. When I learn of the winners circle I will make a brand-new post about it to keep on supporting the medium. Good luck to all of the nominees. See you soon.
