This is a fantastic chance to learn trivia about your anime and tokusatsu favorites, see great things you never knew existed, sing along, and even compete for prizes
Dallas, TX and Shinjuku, Japan (PRWEB) March 5, 2010
Japan's ultimate event for anime otaku is coming to America! All-Con is honored to host the U.S. debut of the 24-Hour Endurance 1,000 Anime Song Medley on March 13-14, in Dallas, Texas.
Celebrating its 16th year, the 24-Hour Endurance 1,000 Anime Song Medley is a nonstop show of anime and tokusatsu titles, scenes, and rarities, collected and presented by the deeply knowledgable--and very funny!--Otakuzake duo of indy filmmaker Keisaku Kimura ("Famires Senshi Purin," 2009) and manga artist Kazushi Hinoki ("Chaos Gear" (2000, Magazine Z Comics); "Twin Tail" (2003, Young Champion Comics); "Famires Senshi Purin" (2003-06, Young King Comics); "Gun x Sword" (art only; 2005, Shonen Champion Comics), "Idol H: Himeko no Himitsu" (2008-09, GA Comics); and "Police Girl" (2009, Nichibun Comics).
"This is a fantastic chance to learn trivia about your anime and tokusatsu favorites, see great things you never knew existed, sing along, and even compete for prizes," said Ardith Carlton, a survivor of four Medley marathons in Japan, who will provide English-language support for the U.S. edition.
The Medley will be held in Crowne Plaza North Dallas' Addison Theater, complete with comfy tiered seating, from 1:00 p.m. Saturday to 2:00 p.m. Sunday (24 hours, with the start of Daylight Savings Time). Admission is free for All-Con attendees, and a smorgasbord of anime- and tokusatsu-related loot from donor HobbyLink Japan--including several hot new releases from Bandai and Kaiyodo--will be up for grabs in contests throughout the Medley.
Until now, the Medley has been held at Shinjuku's famed otaku-friendly live house, Loft Plus One...and in fact the longtime cult-favorite event will return there a week after All-Con, when the unstoppable Otakuzake again serves up the Medley--this time with special guest performers Isao Taira and MIQ, and coupled with a mini-documentary on the All-Con adventure--on March 21-22.
