margaret

That’s right! If you’re in the downtown area May 25-27 you just might be one of the 20,000 people attending this year’s Anime North, Toronto’s weekend-long super-anime-enthusiast convention. And this year Rescue the Princess! is hosting a discussion panel on Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4.

Stop by our very own Velvet Room to hear and participate in some sophisticated babble on the game’s story, themes and characters. We may even touch upon the recent anime adaptation! Maybe. So if you’re headed to Anime North this year, check your programming schedule and visit us for some BRILLIANT insight, cosplay and prizes. Prizes??

If you’re not into P4 or our panel doesn’t fit into your schedule and you really, really want an autograph, you may be able to catch us roaming around the parking lot…as the cast from Ghost Trick.

UPDATE. Panel location and time: Sunday May 27th. Sheraton, Niagara Room. 5pm.
