Please join us for "Dance for your Idol" at 10pm on Saturday 5/23 in the Fan Event (which we think is the Valley Room in the Fairmont Hotel, but we apologize in advance if we're confused). The Fan Event Room is at the Hyatt Place hotel (on the same block as the Civic) in Salon 1&2.

Have you ever been to a Japanese concert and just sat there and wondered, “What am I supposed to do with all this energy inside me? How will my idol know how much I love her!?!?” We will teach you to unleash this untapped energy and become a lean mean cheering machine.

While it's your choice who to cheer for in the future, you can join us at Stage Zero to cheer for Platinum☆Stars, Cherry-Jelly Productions, Fanimaid☆LIVE, CV01, Ri☆Hai , SBA0048 and ATM.  http://forums.fanime.com/index.php/topic,20116.0.html

Yes, this is about "Wotagei" if you're familiar with this Japanese term. You can get a quick preview from http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AW_Op9pW4j0

Finally, you can visit our Facebook page “Overseas Wotagei Research Group” at https://www.facebook.com/kaiwoken

Join us for a Wotagei Workshop (or Otagei Workshop if you prefer) at FanimeCon 2104 on Friday at 9 pm. We expect to be in the Valley Room in the Fairmont Hotel (second floor, between Panels 3 and Panels 4). This two hour fan event will cover, not just one, but two kinds of wotagei:
  • Concert wotagei:
    Japanese-style concert cheering -- movements with or without glowsticks, yells (calls, MIXes) and other "concert manners" -- appropriate for anything from street performances and small clubs to big stadium idol and anime song concerts (AKB48, Animelo Summer Live, ...). http://youtu.be/AW_Op9pW4j0 is a quick starting lesson.
  • Street/Freestyle wotagei:
    Wotagei for making cool dance videos to anime/idol/... songs for posting on Youtube, etc. with glowsticks and more difficult moves. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SX_ebL8O8kY is an example video with groups from the US, Mexico and (mostly) Indonesia. The "U.S. Team" part by our group starts around 2:36, and these local guys will be showing off some of their fancy moves to a couple songs in addition to teaching.
Our official fan event listing: http://www.fanime.com/panels/fan-event-listing/#150

Wearing loose and comfortable clothing, bringing water, and generally being prepared to wave your arms and yell is encouraged.

Between scheduled performances at Stage Zero and random performances at Fanimaid Cafe, Karaoke or just somewhere with a boombox, there'll be plenty of opportunities to try out what you learned at FanimeCon.  It is our greatest hope that you'll join us in "beating out some wotagei" after the workshop.

For the 20th anniversary of No-Name Anime, we celebrate our history by watching the momentous "mockumentary" inspired by the history of GAINAX and by joining Spike and Jet as they learn about early video media in their own way.

They decide that they want to surprise Azusa with some show of
appreciation and start mulling over ideas. However, as is so often the
case with the characters of K-On, they are too easily distracted from
their goal by the ebb and flow of the daily goings-on -- including an
impromptu club trip to London. The one in England.

Life is full of journeys; some are short, just a walk down the beach; others cover years, and span continents.  For the Flame Maidens of Seize in the 1121st Platoon, their journey has been accelerating towards an epic collision of forces, as two armies march towards what could be their final confrontation in today's heart-wrenching episode.  Kino's eponymous wanderings find her in yet a new land, meeting a young woman launching her own journey of discovery.  Finally, we end our anime meanderings today by reliving the journey of the Fate/stay night characters in a creative re-imagining of their story, in Unlimited Blade Works.
