*Ahem* So as I was saying, this year’s convention was held on October 8 – 11. As you may have guessed from his initial outburst, the main spotlight of this year’s NYCC was none other than the creator of Naruto, Masashi Kishimoto!
Kishimoto-sensei had a panel Thursday afternoon on the main stage, so the first thing I did when I arrived was line up for that. Luckily though, NYCC had a system where you could get a wristband for the panel and then come back later, so you could see the rest of the convention. In past years, you’d have to stay in line the whole day!
And just before Kishimoto-Sensei’s main stage panel, he actually did a live twitch broadcast interview! It was on a small stage on the actual main show floor. I was able to record the entire thing from the front row seats which you can watch below (the people in front of me were sitting on the ground). Right before the interview started I also grabbed this selfie with Kishimoto-Sensei in the back, as well as a selfie with Chad Coleman (Tyreese from The Walking Dead)!
