The Details: The third annual Anime NYC convention is rapidly approaching and this event seems to get bigger and bigger with each passing year. For those still in the unaware, this is a convention that is 100% dedicated to the Pop Culture phenomenon of Anime, Manga and other related Japanese entertainment. It’s a three-day event that will overwhelm the senses and delight each and every attendee based on the special events, special guests and screenings, available products and scores of incredible cosplay of some of the most popular Anime in existence. If you’ve followed the Official PiercingMetal Instagram at all, you know full well that we just love the convention circuit and do our best to support amazing events such as this one. Now, thanks to the fine folks at Leftfield Media, my convention minded Anime friends will have the chance to win a Weekend Pass to the convention and this means ALL THREE DAYS of it. This is our second time doing a contest for this convention and we thank the fine folks at Leftfield Media for offering us this awesome giveaway. Historically speaking, this marks our 260th contest and finds this outlet passing 1700 tickets given away. Onward and upward I always say so get ready and get set because the details on how to participate in this one are coming up next along with some important guidelines. Let’s go.

When and Where: November 15th – 17th at Jacob Javits Center, 34th Street and 11th Avenue NYC

To Participate: When I did the contest for the 2018 Anime NYC, I really put the interested people to work. It was my very first Pop Culture event contest and we were dealing with a full 3-Day pass for said affair and that was my rationale. Since we are again dealing with full weekend passes I am putting you to work once more and this premise will be a fun one for sure. Considering how many awesome live action superhero movies have been coming out over the last few years for this contest YOU are the producer of an upcoming Anime live motion picture. Most of my contest questions will need your answers based on this premise. There are no wrong answers so let’s have some fun.
