New York Anime Fest 2008, day 2, Javits Center, West Side.

Check out the detail on this cosplay Ryuk from Death Note. Probably my favorite cosplay of this year's fest (though the Max & Miriya above is a very close second).

It's the pollution god (or whatever the hell that was) from Spirited Away!

Karl Custer, a.k.a. Uncle Yo, the otaku comedian. Check him out if he's doing a con near you - funny.

Not pictured: Ronald's french-fry sword. Awesome.

Steve Blum, voice of Spike Spiegel (Cowboy Bebop), Leeron (Gurren Lagann), and a hundred other roles in games and anime (including Cheng-shin in Planetes, my new favorite show).

Tony Oliver - writer, producer, and voice of Rick Hunter (Robotech), Lupin (Lupin III), and six thousand others.

Jimmy makes a new friend.

See you next year!
