Vintage Anime - Name That Year! - Returning for 2020
« on: March 27, 2018, 02:42:48 PM »

We have submitted this panel for 2020 and are waiting on approval response.  We hope to bring it back again - with all new titles - and hopefully TWO HOURS with TWO FULL GAMES for 2020.

...we also hope to have our time nailed down further in advance so we can actually promote the panel like in 2018...

ALL INFO AT THIS TIME IS TO BE DETERMINED UNTIL PANELS ARE APPROVED

- INFORMATION BELOW IS CARRYOVER FROM 2019 AND WILL BE UPDATED ONCE OUR PANEL REGISTRATION IS APPROVED -

Returning for 2019 to bring classic anime love back to FanimeCon -

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 contestant 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!

Saturday, May 25th at 9:00am in Panels 4

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 contestant 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 in the theme of vintage anime fandom. (last year's package contained a LaserDisc, book, soundtrack, and a pair of video games - all vintage anime themed) 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.

All three contestants will receive a special parting gift!
All panel attendees will receive a commemorative badge ribbon at the end of the panel! (limit 80 ribbons)

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

With registration now open, I wanted to ping this thread as we plan on hosting this again for 2019!  Due to positive feedback we're considering expanding to a second session depending on policy once panel registration opens.

Thank you to all our attendees and contestants from FanimeCon 2018 for sharing a bit of your Saturday morning with us and expanding your vintage anime knowledge.

Or just watch a lot of pre-2001 anime openings.  :D

Last year we had a three-way tie at Round 8 that progressed to a two-way tie after the Final Round, so it went to a tiebreaker.

We had a really good mix of attendees (and our three contestants) last year and I want to emphasize this panel can be enjoyed by anyone who likes anime, even if you only have a curiosity about titles from 2000 and earlier - not just the "hardened vintage retro otaku."  As three year choices are given for each opening / intro, you can think through it and formulate a good guess as to the correct response - although I do like to make them somewhat tricky (but not frustrating) in that regard.  That was actually really cool last year, watching the contestants work a bit of a process of elimination while the openings were playing.

Additionally I try to ensure the panel has a good mix of anime.  At least one title that's really well-known commonly, a few that are very popular but not universal, one truly vintage title, one where the art style betrays its production year, and a general mix otherwise.  I also attempt to utilize titles that have been recently licensed / relicensed or rescued, have a fansubbing project currently underway, have new productions based upon the property currently in work, are celebrating an anniversary, have a connection to a FanimeCon Guest of Honor, etc.  So they are absolutely not thrown together at random - I really think through what to include in the panel as per what is going on with vintage anime currently and then I research to make sure my information is as accurate as possible.

If I'm able to get a two-hour Saturday morning slot, 2020 will feature two full games (two groups of three contestants), two awesome vintage prize packages, special parting gifts for all contestants, and a small special gift for EVERY attendee.

Okay, it appears we have been accepted for 2020, Saturday morning, 9am - 11am in Panels Room 4.  This will be TWO FULL games / sessions back to back - think of a game show shooting two episodes on the same day for example.  That means there will be six total contestants, 3 for the first game and 3 for the second, with each game featuring completely different anime titles.  Also means there will be two different vintage anime prize packages in the theme of vintage anime fandom, special parting gifts for all six contestants, and a small special gift for EVERY attendee.

The thread will be updated in the next week with more information.  Thanks for your support, hope to see you at Fanime!
