    The battle for supremacy is on as we engage to match wits in Game Night - Unofficial Otakon Quiplash. Friday, 07/19/2019 at 9:00PM EDT We've loaded the Jackbox Party Pack favorite Quiplash 2 with dozens (over 5 dozen!) of custom prompts relating to Otakon, anime, and anything else we could think of! Players are given a prompt, such as "Why Shinji really didn't want to get in the robot". Players then put down their funniest, wittiest, or whatever answer they think will get them the votes! The answers are put head to head and the best, or sometimes the worst, response wins! Win or lose, this is one event you won't want to miss, as Quiplash is already a fun time, so Quiplash + anime + Otakon should be an amazing time!

    Join us tonight and come together with your fellow Otakon members as we view the 2016 hit film Your Name. Tonight, Monday 07/15 at 9:00PM EDT Whether it is your first time or 100th time, share in the magic of the critically acclaimed film. From director Makoto Shinkai, the innovative mind behind Voices of a Distant Star and 5 Centimeters Per Second, comes a beautiful masterpiece about time, the thread of fate, and the hearts of two young souls.

    Idea for a future Otakon

    Having people from New Japan Pro Wrestling would be cool, but yeah, G1 Climax, which is a (roughly) month long tournament, generally takes place right when Otakon is happening. Of course, there other other Japanese wrestling promotions that could be considered. DDT Pro-Wrestling could be cool too. Or if you want to go crazy, Kaiju Big Battel.
  12. For a little sample, here is "Flyers", used as the opening to anime Death Parade, from their 2015 album Power of Life. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJ6zOxNEXvs Also, they will be releasing a new single called 『O・TE・A・GE・DA!』 on April 24th, 2019, so keep an eye out for that, all you FUNKY PARTY PEOPLE!

    The Otakon 2019 Guest Request Thread

    Ok, I lied, I thought of 2 more requests. First, this is a request combined with feedback. LAVA (Loud, Annoying, and Very Annoying) featuring Ray Chase, Robbie Daymond, and Max Middleton had a fantastic After Dark 18+ show on Friday night. It may be too soon to have them back, but I would request their return to put on their LAVA shows again. They have a rotating routine of games, and improv, so it likely wouldn't be the exact same thing if they do it again next year. Secondly, the absence of the Otakon Game Show for a second year in a row has left a noticeable gap in programming, so I request/suggest bringing in Greg Wicker of Greggo's Game Shows to fill in the gap and present his game shows at Otakon. He is a long time veteran of the convention circuit and puts on anime themed game shows, both replicas of real TV game shows and original games. Some of the game shows, such as All Star Blitz or Hollywood Squares, aside from convention attendees as contestants, involve the participation of guests, making them particularly fun to watch. Another game, Know Your Role, has convention guests playing a game themselves and then answering questions about their previous roles or about their craft, so it makes an interesting alternative to just another Q&A session. Still other games, such as Strikeout, Anime Press Your Luck, or Definition, simply feature the attendee contestants, but are still a fun time for everyone in attendance. Examples of his work, for your consideration, is available on his YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/user/gregdasgo I would appreciate your sincere consideration in my second request, as I truly believe it would be of great benefit to Otakon programming.

    The Otakon 2019 Guest Request Thread

    I only have one request. Musical guest for the Festival themed Otakon 25th Anniversary: WAGAKKI BAND A blend of modern rock instruments (guitar, bass, drums) with traditional Japanese instruments such as Taiko drums, Tsugaru-Shamisen , Shakuhachi, and Koto. This is the perfect blend of west and east to have with us as we celebrate! They released their most recent album, Otonoe, April of this year. For your listening pleasure, here is "Yuki Kageboushi", their most recent single from this year.
