‘Chainsaw Man’ is Nice, But My Favorite Part of Anime NYC Was This ‘Hidden’ Gem

Anime NYC's Alice and Killjoy from Valorant.

If you asked me to list my favorite three conventions, Anime NYC would be somewhere on that list. Every fall, I block off an entire weekend of my life to go check out the show floor and see what’s popping in the wide and wonderful world of anime weebdom. It’s always a blast, especially for my wallet.

A lot of things about Anime NYC 2022 didn’t surprise me this year. Chainsaw Man was huge. HoYoverse’s Genshin Impact merch booth line was nuts. And VTubers like Projekt Melody made a significant appearance in merchandise and apparel, from nude stickers to entire cars decked out in their avatars. For a lesbian anime fan like myself, I had plenty of opportunities to shop.
