A badge to Anime NYC gets you into most things, but there are a few events this year that require an additional ticket. Most panels at Anime NYC are first come, first served, and you can enter as long as there’s still space in the room.

But an additional ticket is required for some of our biggest events to prevent waiting all day in lines, overcrowding, and not getting in.


Tickets to this event will be given away free first come, first served online.


Tickets to this event are free, but admission to Anime NYC is also required. Tickets for this event will be given away starting at 6 PM EST  / 3 PM PST on November 16.


Tickets to these events will be given away for free through free pre-show lotteries. You must receive a ticket through a random giveaway to attend.

  • POMPO THE CINEPHILE Preview Screening
  • BELLE Preview Screening

Random ticket giveaways for each of these events will be run from November 3 until November 9. A different giveaway will be run for each event. You can enter each giveaway once. All entrants will be contacted by November 11. Winners will each receive a pair of tickets. Please see our full Ticket Giveaway FAQ page for more information.
