Every October thousands of people come to New York City to dress up in costumes and party all day and all night long for almost an entire week of themed events – and it’s not because of Halloween! That’s right, LumRanmaYasha and VlordGTZ went to the famous New York Comic Con, which means it’s time for another con report podcast! There were TONS of epic panels, awesome guests, huge announcements, special screenings, and great experiences – and we’re here to discuss them all! From the nostalgia of the  Yu Yu Hakusho reunion panel to the insanity of the [adult swim] events, and exciting new licensing announcements like the return of Maison Ikkoku and the coming of Ping Pong, we go over all the high points of a weekend we won’t soon forget!  

Hey, we even managed to get this podcast out within a month of the con itself! Hoorah!
