Vintage Anime - Name That Year!
« on: March 27, 2018, 02:42:48 PM »

In an effort to bring some classic anime love back to FanimeCon, a new panel -

Vintage Anime - Name That Year!

Do you know your anime? Three attendees compete to identify pre-2001 anime openings to their respective years! Each classic anime opening is followed by a brief selection of information, including current availability and related works. Compete to win old school anime prizes and be crowned Otaking!*

(three competitor slots accepted from panel attendees - first come, first served)

*Otaking is not gender-specific, it's a term from the 1991 OVA "Otaku no Video" but if you're interested in this panel then you probably knew that already.

View the greatest anime openings of all time, listen to iconic music, and expand your anime horizons!

The first three panel attendees who wish to compete will sit at the front of the room across from the stage. They will each be given three cards, marked A, B, and C.

Ten rounds - Each round will have three years on screen, example: A.1982 B.1985 C.1989, and an anime opening / intro will play. At the conclusion of the anime opening, each competitor holds up the card that corresponds to the year they think the anime series premiered in. If their answer is correct, they are awarded a point.  After a round, the next presentation slide will give the correct answer for the competitors and audience, brief information about the series, its current availability, and so on - as is done in a traditional information panel.  After that the next round begins.

Whichever contestant has the most points at the end of the final round wins a vintage anime prize pack supplied by myself. (nothing crazy, don't get too excited, but it will be in the theme of vintage anime fandom) In the case of a tie, there will be a tiebreak series opening, without multiple choice, where the competitors must write the year down. Closest to the actual year breaks the tie and wins.  In the event of a continuing tie, co-champions will be crowned!

A twist on the "vintage anime" type panel with more audio / video and the addition of a competition between three attendees.

This will be the first time this panel is offered and is a one-hour panel.

Currently confirmed for Saturday, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM in Panels Room 4.

Join us and... NAME - THAT - YEAR!
