NYAF: News and views

I still have some notes to write up from NYAF, but before it all fades, I wanted to round up all the links I could find from folks who were at the show.

One of the pleasures of freelancing for PWCW is getting to hang out a bit with Heidi MacDonald. At The Beat, she posts her first impressions, an overview, and some cool photos.

Also, the hard-working circle of PWCW freelancers posted a roundup of the big stories and brief reports on a number of panels.

Deb Aoki of About.com’s manga section was not only dedicated but also friendly, rescuing me in one panel by sharing her power cord when my battery was about to die. She covered the festival extensively and posted this cool photo gallery.

Krista at Animetique posted coverage of activities on the floor and the panels.

Casey, who blogs as Kethylia, posts detailed notes of her impressions.

Okazu’s Erica Friedman shares her overall impressions plus some tidbits of gossip she picked up on the floor. (Possible new license?)

JP Meyer gave NYAF an “incomplete.”

Wendy Pini, who was there with the Go!Comi crew, wrote about her experiences, and she included photos!

Dallas Middaugh and Tricia Narwani of Del Rey had a number of short posts and photos at the Del Rey blog.

Edward Liu of Toon Zone has a coverage from an anime point of view and photos of cosplayers.

At PopCultureShock’s Manga Recon blog, Katherine Dacey-Tsuei put it all in perspective with a post on the five most important stories from NYAF.

ANN posted video reports on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

And here’s coverage of the various panels:

ICv2 Conference

This professionals-only conference kicked off the festival, and it gave us plenty to talk about over the next few days. The Beat had an overview, as did ICv2 themselves.

    We focus more on the anime side than the manga side, but I covered NYAF for Toon Zone News, and the roundup article of our coverage is at
