{{ PRESS RELEASE }} TAKII 9's Grand Premiere This Weekend!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now: TAKII 9 Releases Its "Hardcore Handbook" & MORE In Time For Its 9th Seasonal Celebration Memorial Day Weekend!

ORIGINAL PRESS RELEASE URL: http://amen.pdnmz.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=30

May 27th, 2010 -- Upper Darby, PA -- Ever been in a situation where you find yourself going to a festival/convention, fired up & ready to go, but have no freakin' clue what to do, or where to go to do it? Well, minna-san, the Team TAKII Coalition proudly presents to you the "Hardcore Handbook" for TAKII 9 ~Yume Ga Kanau~! The "Hardcore Handbook" is your key to celebratory awesomeness for the fusion festival! It's just like any other programming book you would find at other like-minded functions/conventions, but it's value is unmatched in the realm of Asian-themed fandom. Featuring various at-festival procedures, guest & performer bios, event schedules, autograph panels, & other TAKII-exclusive sexiness, it's the perfect compliment to everyone's fusion festival experience. People who plan on attending a season of TAKII are encouraged to print out a copy of the "Hardcore Handbook" prior to their arrival, as only limited editions & quantities of this guide would be available at-the-door. Without further ado, you may download your copy of TAKII 9 ~Yume Ga Kanau~'s "Hardcore Handbook" here: http://takii.pdnmz.com/registration.html#hardcore_handbook

As any fan of "the world's most extreme Asian culture fusion festival" would know, The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational prides itself on offering the most uniquely cutting-edge sources of entertainment around. In that spirit, TAKII 9 ~Yume Ga Kanau~ is excited to premiere a 1st in the Greater Philadelphia Region for an Asian-themed celebration: a collaborative tournament in both Capcom's Tatsunoko VS Capcom (Wii) & Super Street Fighter 4 (PS3), a centerpiece of our "Capcom Showdown SmackDown!" game show/tournament to be held this weekend!! From the official TAKII website: "Capcom has been a video game juggernaut for decades, creating timeless classics families all over the world have thoroughly enjoyed across generations of system. With the coming of TAKII 9, we once again celebrate the vast amount of characters from this gaming giant's empire in the form of "Capcom Showdown SmackDown"! #1 Contender's Pass holders will be chosen at random, taking part in a series of Capcom game-based challenges on systems ranging from old-school Arcade & PS3 & everything in-between. Finalists will be determined by each system that they triumph, with all of those victors battling it out for ultimate gaming glory (in a Tatsunoko VS Capcom & Super Street Fighter 4 finale) to crown our "Capcom Showdown SmackDown" World Champ!"

Another trademark characteristic of The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational is its penchant for going "off-script", coming up with fantastic festivities that give birth to some of the memorable (& humorously-bizarre) moments in TAKII history, & TAKII 9 ~Yume Ga Kanau~ promises to carry on that tradition strong (^_^). What special tasks will contestants have asked of them during our combined "TAKII 9 Show" & "AMEN Talent Showcase"? Just how extreme is our extended "Ota-Rave" going to be? Whose performance is going to bring down "the house of Asian music appreciation" during our "Makenai: Fusion Charity Benefit Concert"? And what will Pocky, ice cream, water ice, sugar, spice, everything nice (& maybe naughty LOL), other chilled desserts, & a crazy game show host that has a fixation for the word "Iron" have to do with each other!? The only way to solve these mysteries, & MORE, is to make sure you don't miss a moment of the non-stop action that's goin' down at TAKII 9 ~Yume Ga Kanau~ this weekend!

In closing, the Team TAKII Coalition (new & veteran staff, sponsors, & various volunteers alike) wishes to send a special DOMO ARIGATOU to all of its fans worldwide, especially those who will be in attendance live at TAKII 9 ~Yume Ga Kanau~ this Memorial Day Weekend.

Of course, it is worth mentioning that all rules for "Vid Game Free Play" will be in full-effect for our "Vid Game Tourneys", which includes using fusion festival-provided gaming equipment & copies of gaming titles. Coordinators also wish to fairly warn everyone that passionate gamers tend to dominate our entries for Tourneys each season, so as they say, "if you can't stand the heat, then you should get out of the kitchen" (LOL ^_^). Excessive douche-ry, however, isn't endorsed or tolerated by the festival.
