We are pleased to announce the following special events will take place at Otakon 2014!
Otakorp, Inc. is pleased to announce that Otakon 2014 will play host to a special exhibit of concept artwork for the upcoming animation project "In This Corner of the World". Director Sunao Katabuchi will curate the exhibit, to be presented adjacent to the Otakon Art Show.
This is the latest of several special art presentations at Otakon. In 2013, Otakon hosted an extremely popular and unique exhibit of original Rurouni Kenshin artwork in the same space (and curated by the wife of Kenshin's creator), and in prior years has hosted collections of original animation cels.
Viz Media and Otakorp, Inc. are pleased to announce special programming for Saturday at Otakon 2014, which will see an official celebration of 20 years of Sailor Moon. The day will be filled with screenings, panels, autograph sessions, and special events.
On Saturday morning, cosplayers will attempt to break the record (set last month at Anime Expo) for the largest gathering of Sailor Moon cosplayers in the US.
In the afternoon, Otakon will host a special screening of the new dubbed classic Sailor Moon episodes, presented by Viz, with a Q&A featuring the official English voices of Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask, Stephanie Sheh and Robbie Daymond. This event will also include an advance screening of two additional episodes never seen before.
Otakon will also host the Official Sailor Moon Autograph Session, which will feature both cast members as well as an exclusive poster.
In the evening, there will be screening of the first two episodes of the new series, Sailor Moon Crystal.
In addition to these specific events, Viz will be present throughout the weekend in the Dealers' Hall, and will also bring several unique items for Otakon:
