AnimeJapan 2014 Report!

ash

I lugged the steadicam all the way to Odaiba this past weekend to check out AnimeJapan, a new convention aimed at being the world’s biggest anime event. This year the Tokyo International Anime Fair and the Anime Contents Expo merged into a single event where companies set up booths to showcase upcoming animations, demo new tech, put on stage shows and sell merchandise. While I mostly went to film the cosplay crowds I did spend some time walking around the 6 event halls. There was plenty to see with elaborate walk-in booths displaying all kinds of anime related goods. There was a life sized Gundam chillin in one hall with army chicks standing guard. There was a motion capture battle booth where you could wear an oculus headset and swing a sword against an opponent.

Rescue the Princess! to Retake Katsucon XX!

fasfefef

Rescue the Princess! loved Katsucon so much that they’ve decided to collectively blow all their money and fly down from Japan to return this February! So far b-rock and Lost Link are hard at work constructing outfits and Seagz, Xinity and Phrank are being lazy.

Lost Link is also eager to continue playing with his new toy and you can check out some of the talented people he may be filming with below! Rumor has it that our GOOD PAL Ackson may be out of the picture this year shoving MLZ to the forefront as RtP’s new ETERNAL videography rival.

So keep your fingers crossed for good weather and bring on the Gaylord!

Comiket 2013 Cosplay Showcase!

The crowds have dissipated, the sun has set and the all the hentai sold. Comiket 84 is finished. But the cosplay lives on in this music video (which a quick youtube search suggests) is the very first to come out of Comiket in Odaiba, Japan.

Special thanks to the rockin idol, Yuriko Tiger!


Anime Contents Expo 2013

Podcasts are still on hold for awhile but Lost Link did have time to stop by a convention in Chiba to film some Japanese cosplayers. Enjoy!


Katsucon Is Best Con Says Rescue the Princess!

Annnd we’re back having survived all travels. National Harbor was wonderful and all the people, places, events and surprises have made Katsucon the best convention for us thus far. We’ll have our con review/adventure video up as soon as we can. In the meantime check out Lost Link’s first music video (1 of 3!!!) he made with the collaboration of cosplayers around National Harbor’s beautiful Gaylord hotel and resort.

Special thanks to Akuriko, Andrea and Luna Rahzel!

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.
