There were many floats during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City that video game and anime fans would easily have been able to point out.

It’s a tradition that happens every Thanksgiving day – a massive parade goes down the streets of New York while those in attendance, and those at home marvel at the giant floats and balloons that go on by.

During the 2019 parade, there was a lot that gaming and anime fans would recognize so we’ve rounded up some of the best floats from this year’s event.

Pokemon CompanyPikachu made an appearance at the parade.

Anime and gaming only rise in popularity each year, so it’s becoming more accepting to be shown off in the mainstream like this, and fans couldn’t be more excited about it.

Let’s just dive right in and look at some of the best floats and balloons to make an appearance during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

With Pokemon Sword and Shield releasing earlier this month, it’s no surprise to see a Pikachu balloon floating out there, especially considering that Pikachu is one of the most popular Pokemon.

Red Power Ranger

The Red Power Ranger has always been one of the more popular ones of them all, so it’s not surprising to see him featured front and center here.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

The Ninja Turtles have long been a fixture in pop culture, and they’re currently starring in a new TV show on Nickelodeon called Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

While the LEGO brand is mostly known for its physical collection of toys, it has carved out a name for itself in the video game landscape thanks to series like LEGO Star Wars, Avengers, Harry Potter, and many, many more.

That’s everything that was on display in the gaming and anime realm this year, so perhaps next year could bring an even bigger showing.

Millie Bobby Brown deleted her TikTok account and her fans have been left wondering what happened that led to her departure.

Millie Bobby Brown exploded in popularity after all the success of Stranger Things in the past few years. However, fans have been drawn to her bright and bubbly personality too, and she’s developed a big presence on social media

Millie Bobby Brown has almost 40 million followers on Instagram. It was always her biggest platform. However, her TikTok was incredibly popular too. It featured all kinds of content, including clips of her singing, dancing, and recreating viral trends like a normal teenager.

She has now deleted her TikTok, which came as a huge surprise to her millions of followers, and many are left wondering if and when she’ll return to the video-sharing platform.

Nothing stopped her fans from speculating about some of the reasons why she might have disabled her account, which had around 16.2 million followers, and 158.4 million clip likes.

Although she didn’t address the situation directly, Millie appeared to post a short explanation to her Instagram story, saying “realizing that surrounding yourself with positivity is the happiest way of living! No hate, and only love. Remember to be kind. Thank you.”

It’s not the first time Brown has deleted a social media account either. She deleted her Twitter account all the way back in 2018 due to a series of “disgusting” memes, and she may very well have done the same this time around too.

Of course, her TikTok videos will be sorely missed. They always managed to brighten people’s days. Still, it’s important to remember there’s an actual person behind the spotlight.
