Otakon 2013: Baltimore Loses Its Mind

0 comments // in Articles Events Industry News Photos // August 7, 2013 // Posted by VillainousVoltron

The 20th annual Otakon hits Baltimore once again August 9-11.

Otakon has become the biggest otaku, anime, and japanese pop culture celebration to hit Maryland, and it looks as though this year may blow the doors off of the building.

Check out a the guest list here.

For my money, I’d try to see Maile Flanagan, Kyle Hebert (I’m a sucker for Dragonball, and I make no attempts to hide this), and Chiaki Ishikawa, because well, come on.

Hit the artist’s alley to meet up and comers, check out as many events as you can (Otaku Idol? Come on.) and see some rad concerts, and or raves if that’s your pleasure, that will keep you dancing well into the early morning hours.

You can catch Otakon at the Baltimore Convention Center. Registration info can be found here.

If you’re in Maryland and you didn’t have plans for this weekend, it sounds like you just got some.

Go forth! Enjoy! Try to remember what you did! And check out some of the shots from last year’s Otakon.

Really Cool Attack on Titan Tributes, Swag and Games

0 comments // in Articles Asian Culture Games Photos Video // // Posted by muten

So, I think it’s safe to say that this past year in anime has been ridiculously exciting. Attack on Titan has proved to be this year’s most epic release to date. It’s had the most cosplayers, and introduced more new anime watchers than anything else I’m aware of. It gives us indie anime producers a peak into what it might be like to have an anime series blockbuster.

Amidst dominating the past two seasons of anime, there have been some cool tributes, swag, and multiple games announced:

Tributes – A Sandy Armored Titan
. This beautiful piece of sand art was created by Toshihiko Hosaka, a sculptor with some SICK work, and obviously a patron of new anime.

 

Swag – Interactive Titan T-shirt
I normally turn my t-shirts inside out to make myself look like a ninja (and then proceed to Tee-Pee my enemies). This t-shirt flips that idea on its head, by actually printing graphics on the inside of the tee! If you put this tee over your head, you too will become a Titan (like a certain person we know from the series). My favorite part of this merch is the perfect imitation of tendons and muscles that show up when you put the t-shirt over your face. Honestly, genius.

 

Swag – Interactive Coffee Mug
Okay, not entirely interactive. But if you place your head closer to the table, then the titan will actually hide from you! Word to “field of vision”. Still a really innovative idea. Attack on Titan’s marketing and merch team is really turning the game inside out (pun intended)!

 

AoTTG Demo (Web Game)
Built on the Unity engine, some really clever guys over at Fenglee created a flash game that is sure to trigger some nostalgia from the series. It hit me just the other day; I realized the concept for killing titans is actually perfect for a new video game approach. It’s Spiderman + Naked Giants (huge plus, right?) + what kind of feels like NES Zelda. I don’t know, give it a try and let me know if you like it.

Play the game here (and try not to get eaten).

 

Attack on Titan Second Life Mod
Remember Second Life? Some genius gamers modded and recreated everything they could from the series and you can actually play the demo. There’s a free demo available at Kohime’s store, so all you have to do is download Second Life, sign up for a free account, and do a search for “Edelweiss”.

I’ve attached a video and a link for you to check it out. Check out more on Kotaku.

Official 3DS Video Game Announced
This is what I am truly excited about. An official release of Attack on Titan on the consoles, and it looks like 3DS is up first. After going to Anime Expo this year, it’s obvious the anime demographic heavily favors the Nintendo 3DS 10:1 (stat pulled out of my butt) to every other mobile device, iPhone included. Dare I say this will be the first anime game I’d be willing to purchase since Ninja Storm 3? It might rabbit, it might. Sources have confirmed that Spike Chunsoft is now working on releasing the new game to Japan this year. We’ll keep tabs on the news for you, so keep coming back for more updates!
