Hey folks,

I'm Brandon, the manager of Asian Films at Fanime. This year, we'll be giving away tons of stuff in between the screenings of the films we're showing this year. Make sure to check us out and get as much free stuff in your hands as possible!

If you've never been to any of the Asian Film Rooms before, don't usually check out the video rooms, or just think Asian film only consists of spooky horror or martial arts, there is a lot you've been missing out on. I've been running the Asian Film Rooms at Fanime since FanimeCon 2000, and the rooms and our crowds have only been getting larger each year. The reason for that? Quality entertainment, great crowds, and one of the most unique experience you'll find at Fanime.

There are a lot of similarities between Anime and Asian Film. Not only are both industries that started by attracting cult audiences, but both provide entertaining stories that have an Eastern flair, making them different from the type of programs and films that we see here in the West. Also, both are forms of entertainment that have reached a boom in popularity. If you haven't caught on yet, now is as good a time as any.

Whether it's the Miyazaki-like wonder of a film like Welcome to Dongmakgol or the innocent beauty of a film like Just One Look, there are plenty of films this year that are sure to please, whether they are films you just haven't seen yet or the first Asian film you experience at Fanime this year. In addition, we have live-action movies based on Initial D and NANA, as well as the film Koi no Mon (also known as "Otakus in Love") and the drama Densha Otoko, which all have their roots in Anime/Manga and Fandom.

So make sure to check out the Asian Film Rooms this year! Even if you only come in for one movie, it may just be the best thing you see at Fanime '06 this year.
