: Celebrating the long-anticipated arrival of The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational's 14th season!ORIGINAL PRESS RELEASE URL
December 24th, 2012 -- Upper Darby, PA -- On December 29th & 30th, 2012 (10am - 10pm operating hours for each day), The Rotunda will finally welcome TAKII 14 ~New Year's Evolution~ to the masses! Our fans have waited for this moment to come long enough....but before we get to that point, we have a few things to make sure everyone keeps in mind. Before your arrival to TAKII 14, make sure you have downloaded & printed out a copy of our Hardcore Handbook (the festival programming guide)! It features the schedule, brief info on what to expect this season, & provides ample space to get signatures (or contact info) from friends & fellow TAKII family members (a-la a yearbook, minus the scholastic drama attached). Our Hardcore Handbook is available NOW on our "Registration" page: http://takii.pdnmz.com/registration
With the expected boost in attendance this season, it becomes all the more important to make sure you bring your #1 Contender's Pass receipts & a valid photo ID (if you pre-regged) & that you keep your Passes on you at all times. As Team TAKII Co-Coordinator Nero Strife states, "#1 Contender's Passes are good for the entire weekend & can be bought at the door for only $15.00. If you lose your Pass & are unable to relocate it, you will need to spend extra money to purchase another one; don't let that happen to you!" All of our other registration-related policies & procedures can be found in the Hardcore Handbook.
Upon arrival, just what can you expect at TAKII 14 ~New Year's Evolution~? Besides our "TAKII Coordinator Classix" set of festivities in each festivity category ("Music", "Gaming", "Vendor", "Omake"), this season features a 1st in the history of The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational: our "TAKII Family Favorites" festivities being selected by YOU, our attendees, LIVE during TAKII 14 weekend! Selections made will be determined by a combo of random drawings, special competitions, & mini-features that will keep attendees on their tip-toes in anticipation of what to expect next. Beyond that we are also proud to welcome back fellow Team TAKII Co-Coordinator Rose Rappaport, fresh from her semester in Japan, who is also hosting our "X-Treme X-Posé" panel "Japan Q&A"! For those attendees with that extra Hannkuah or Christmas cash to burn, we have a lovely set of vendors & community members ready to sell their "warez" in our "Dealer's Dominion" & "Community Centrale". And of course, we will be bringing back our wildly popular "Auction Royale", "Makenai: Fusion Charity Benefit Concert" (featuring our "Brand-New Debut" Sneko), "TAKII 14 Show", & so much more! For more info on who & what to expect this upcoming season, please visit our "Festivities" (http://takii.pdnmz.com/festivities

It's hard to believe that only 6+ months ago we announced what is now affectionately known as TAKII 14 ~New Year's Evolution~. From our very 1st Team TAKII Coalition staff meeting to our circulated press releases, we knew we had something very special on our hands. Through the combined efforts of TAKII family volunteers, a new batch of sponsors, & fresh partnerships with fellow organization & festivals/convention, "a true reason for an otaku-fied holiday season" was carefully crafted. Awareness of the brand known as "the most extreme Asian culture fusion festival" is at an all-time high & we can't possibly wait to present to all of you the best season this organization has EVER produced!Team TAKII PR CoalitionTAKII

The stockings will be hung from the chimney with care. Auld acquaintances shall not be forgot. And the seasonal references could go on & on & before we know it, TAKII 14 ~New Year's Evolution~ will be upon us! "The reason for the season" will be descending upon Philly, PA's The Rotunda on December 29th & 30th 2012, making it the perfect place to enjoy some after-Christmas chaos & pre-New Year's partying, otaku-fied TAKII-style!
