        Netflix has scored its second exclusive anime TV series: “The Seven Deadly Sins,” based on Japanese graphic novels that have sold more than 15 million copies.

        The company told Forbes it will announce the Nov. 1 launch of the series at New York Comic Con tomorrow. Phonetically known in Japan as “Nanatsu no Taizai,” the animated show has previously not been made available outside that country.

        The anime series launched last year with 24 episodes airing from October to March. Netflix will release all episodes in Japanese with English subtitles on Nov. 1.

              How Many Fans??!! New York Comic Con Sets Attendance Record

              If you spent any time at all at New York Comic Con last weekend, you know there were lots and lots and LOTS of people crowding the Javits Center on the west edge of Manhattan. Official attendance numbers now confirm that observation. ReedPop just confirmed to me that the official attendance at the show topped 167,000 people for the four day event.

              That figure tops last year’s announced attendance of more than 150,000. ReedPop attributes the increase to the expansion of the convention to offsite locations, principally the Hammerstein Ballroom, a 12,000 square foot facility on west 34th street nearby the Javits Center that hosted programs on Friday and Saturday. It does not include attendance at various “Super Week” events around the city held in conjunction with the show, which did not require an NYCC badge or admission.

              ReedPop counts unique attendees per day, not badges sold. People with multi-day badges are counted for each day they attend. The 167,000 attendance figure means 167,000 individual daily admissions over the course of the four days of the convention.

              Is NYCC now the biggest show in North America? Comic-Con International: San Diego (SDCC), which has long held the crown as the largest comics and pop culture event in North America, has reported its attendance at “topping 130,000 in recent years.” That is the capacity of the San Diego Convention Center, the facility where SDCC is held, although that show has also expanded to nearby venues.

              Does that mean NYCC is now top of the superhero heap? Not so fast. Because of differences in how the shows count attendance and the number of people who come to San Diego without badges to participate in offsite events, it is hard to directly compare the two events. SDCC counts attendees rather than unique visits – that is, a four-day passholder who goes all four days counts as one attendee rather than four (as she would by NYCC’s reckoning).

              “The reality is we have well over 130,000 attendees to our show (our badges have names on them) so a four day badge holder is counted as one unique attendee,” says David Glanzer, Director of Marketing and PR for San Diego Comic-Con. “This was considered a benefit to exhibitors because it would let them know how many people they could encounter over the course of the event. If we counted unique attendees per day, our number would be way in excess of 300,000 attendees.”

              Several other fan conventions have grown to six-digit attendance in recent years. Fan Expo Canada, held annually in Toronto, reported 127,000 at its convention held this past September. Salt Lake City Comic-Con also says it drew 127,000 (a new record) to its 2015 show.

              Still not tops in the world. Even a convention on the scale of New York Comic Con still has a ways to go to compete on the world stage. In Europe, the Festival Internationale de la Bande Dessinée held in February in Angoulême, France has long been reputed to draw over 200,000 over the course of a week, but recent stories have questioned how organizers tally that number.

              Comic conventions in India and China, not previously considered hotbeds of fandom for these kinds of pop culture properties, are approaching 100,000 levels and growing at a blistering rate, reflecting the vast young populations of those countries.

              However the undisputed heavyweight champion of comics-oriented events worldwide remains Tokyo’s massive Comiket show, held twice a year. This summer’s August edition drew 180,000 – more than NYCC’s weekend total – on its first day, on the way to a total of 550,000 over three days. That’s up only slightly from the previous year.

                Well... I know I can say I saw quite a few people on the streets, and I know at least a few were on the bus I drove up from the city. The increased foot traffic was definitely present at the $1 pizza place next to Port Authority also...
