BACC Reveals Full Schedule for This Weekends “Big Apple Christmas Con”

You’ve probably realized this by now, but I just love hitting the assorted conventions that cater to my level of geekdom and this weekend’s “Big Apple Christmas Con” will be the final convention that I attend this year. I used to end my adventures of this kind with the New York Comic Con, but then Winter Con popped up and also Anime NYC and now there is this brand-new offshoot of the popular Big Apple Comic Con. Let’s take a look at the recently revealed programming for the day.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I just spent this past weekend at the awesome Anime NYC convention which is an obvious Anime and Manga show and its known for being “powered by Crunchyroll”. This event seems 100% focused on Crunchyroll and it will be curated by the folks at ReedPOP who do the New York Comic Con, Book Expo and Book Con that we regularly attend if we secure the approvals. Though this event will take place on the Left Coast and will not be something that I can easily attend, I shall keep listening for new updates that might pique your interest. Stay tuned for more and to see a wealth of photos from the recent NYCC and ANYC be sure to follow and enjoy all the stuff being posted to our Official Instagram. See you soon.
