January 18th, 2014 -- Upper Darby, PA -- Over the last several years, "the world's most extreme Asian culture fusion festival" has been the stuff of legend in the Philadelphia otaku scene & beyond. From writing the 1st chapter of our saga in the humbling halls of the William Way LGBT Community Center in February 2006 to our proud home at The Rotunda, we have entertained, inspired, & empowered countless thousands of attendees, students, adults, & community members alike, all of whom we affectionate refer to as our TAKII Family. By throwing together the most dynamic parts of Asian music, anime, gaming, & culture in ways unseen & paralleled, we have stood the test of time, now entering our long-awaited growth & expansion with the coming of TAKII 17 ~Densetsu~! Coming to you from Philly, PA's The Rotunda on June 14th & 15th, 2014 (10:00am - 11:00pm EST on both days), our celebratory 17th season becomes THE go-to destination for ANY Asian culture fan this spring/summer festival/convention season as we pay tribute to the most LEGENDARY & TIMELESS facets of this fandom we have so much passion for. Boasting re-vamped "TAKII Coordinator Classix" & "TAKII Family Favorites" festivities, a formidable roster of "Returning Legend" & "Brand-New Debut" guests & performers, perfect partnerships, increased swag sponsorships, & expanded hours, this season is the fruit of everyone's shared sacrifices & support since our inception. Answer the call of that pounding J-Rock beat, throw on your best cosplay couture, grab that joystick, & claim your moment in the otaku-saturated sun only at TAKII 17 ~Densetsu~! Until February 5th, 2014, you may become a timeless TAKII legend with the purchase of a #1 Contender's Pass for only $8.00 (required for entry) or the reservation of a Vendor Table Slot for only $60.00 (to sell your warez & show off your brand). DON'T MISS the cheapest chance you'll have at pre-regging this season & sashay on over to our "Registration" page: http://takii.pdnmz.com/registration.

A TAKII 17 would not have been remotely possible without the record-breaking success of TAKII 16 ~Cho-ho-ho-cobo~! And thanks to so many people being there (with pre-reg numbers increasing by a whopping 300% as compared to TAKII 15 ~GlamazASIANS~), we were able to reach record profits for the 2nd year in a row (a combined 4 seasons without an operating loss)! None of that would have been possible without the cohesion of a refined Team TAKII Co-Coordinator staff, an energized fanbase, TAKII "Returning Legend" guests/performers, & the special "Brand-New Debuts" of The Asterplace (authentic Japanese J-Rockers) & Manly Battleships (who hosted many of our Japanese game show panels this season). Not to be outdone, the Moe Maid Café made a huge splash as being the very 1st-ever festival/convention-produced Japanese maid café to hit the Philadelphia/tri-state area! Put that together with the spirit of love that was clearly taking over The Rotunda during the course of TAKII 16 ~Cho-ho-ho-cobo~ & you, too, will be brought to tears of joy, just as yours truly (D-chan) was multiple times. Instead of becoming history, The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational MADE HISTORY, making increased community outreach & dreams of expansion possible (by way of our patented TAKII World Tour & other fusion festival devices)! For a complete run-down of the fabulousness of TAKII 16 ~Cho-ho-ho-cobo~, check out our "Historic Archives" memorial page: http://takii.pdnmz.com/historic-archives/takii-archive/takii16-chhc.

For those who can't wait for TAKII 17 ~Densetsu~, The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational brings memories of yesteryear & visions of the future together with its own TAKII Family & other casual Asian film fanatics to present to you our newest TAKII World Tour exclusive, Cinemazement! Cinemazement is FREE TO ATTEND, debuting from the home of urban arts expression in the Greater Philadelphia area, The Rotunda, on February from 6:00pm - 10:00pm EST. And in the historic & spacious venue that TAKII has been able to call "home" for the last few years, fans of Asian cinema will be able to enjoy a wide variety of video favorites (on a rotating basis), with our inaugural kick-off screenings comprised of the following titles: Bleach, Princess Tutu, Excel Saga, & Gekijouban Sengoku Basara: The Last Party. All proceeds raised at Cinemazement (through at-door donations & sales from our TAKII Snak Shak) will go directly towards The Rotunda, which has offered a safe & affordable place for creative minds of all shapes & sizes to bring their artistic dreams to life in the Greater Philadelphia area on an (essentially) 24/7 basis for over 15 years. Gina Renzi, Director of The Rotunda, & her volunteer staff sacrifice so much of their time & energy so that many of us can enjoy the wide variety of all-ages programming that the venue makes possible. Now is the time that we show the world how much venues & organizations such as The Rotunda are loved by donating money to their honorable cause while enjoying awesome Asian screening fellowship at the same time, with more info to be found here: http://amen.pdnmz.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=70&t=294. Get ready to be cineMAZED, minna-san!!

Can you handle the heat that comes over your body as you are within a fingertip's touch of your long-awaited favorite guests & performers? If this sounds like you, then you have the spirit of The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational!
