Anime NYC welcomes press outlets from New York City and around the world, and we’re happy to provide approved members of the media with complimentary Press Passes. Press registration will open this spring. You must register online. There is NO Press registration onsite.

A NOTE FOR YOUTUBERS: In recent years, we’ve seen a number of YouTubers attend specifically to make “comedy” videos around asking our attendees provocative, sensitive, or sexual questions. This is unacceptable and against Anime NYC’s Anti-Harassment Policy. Any Press who engage in stalking, harassing, or otherwise inappropriate behavior will receive a permanent ban and will not be approved in future years.

2022 Press registration is closed. There is no Press registration onsite. Did you miss our Press registration want still want to apply? Please reach out to Logan Metzler at
