Caught up with Matthew and Sergio as they checked out the latest anime offerings from Bandai Entertainment. I asked them what they like most about Naruto, and they were unanimous: "The ninja! There's lots of ninja and the fights are awesome."

Over 18,000 anime, manga, Japanese fashion and pop culture fans came out to the 2nd annual New York Anime Festival at Manhattan's Jacob K. Javits Center. Special guests included the creators of Vampire Hunter D, author Hideyuki Kikuchi and artist Yoshitaka Amano; Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto, anime voice actress Rie Tanaka and the designers of Lolita couture house Baby The Stars Shine Bright.
