ABOUT TAKII 16 ~CHO-HO-HO-COBO~
Yesterday....all of our troubles seemed so far away. And now it looks as though they're here to stay by way of The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational's landmark 16th season. Coming to the world from Philadelphia, PA's own The Rotunda on December 28th & 29th, 2013 (10:00am - 10:00pm EST both days), TAKII 16 ~Cho-ho-ho-cobo~ is the very 1st season of "the world's most extreme Asian culture fusion festival" built COMPLETELY from the ground-up by the power & influence that is the TAKII Family! From selecting our season title & theme to each & every festivity, we proudly go where no festival or con of our kind has gone before in paying homage to retro (pre-2000s) Asian music, anime, & gaming powerhouses, from Kiroro to Cutie Honey to Final Fantasy & everything else in-between. With an abundance of unprecedented charity outreach projects, special guests & performers, & TAKII indulgence unlike anything ever experienced before, it's truly going to be holiday cheer for yesteryear to the extreme! TAKII 16 ~Cho-ho-ho-cobo~, the retro-fitted celebration where gettin' down with your BAD self never felt so GOOD!

ORIGINAL PRESS RELEASE URL: http://amen.pdnmz.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=150

October 10th, 2012 -- Upper Darby, PA --While being a volunteer for The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational has always been (& will always be) an integral part of our continued success, the Team TAKII Coalition's sponsors & affiliates have proven to be just as vital for our financial & promotional stability. The purchase of a Coalition Sponsorship through the "Team TAKII Coalition Apps" form allows dynamic donors from all backgrounds to select from multiple levels of sponsorship in exchange for priceless expose that only "the world's most extreme Asian culture fusion festival" can provide, 2nd to none. It is through this unique partnership of invaluable resources & talent that our Coalition Sponsorship program continues to thrive...& we want you to become a part of the action!


BEFORE YOU GET STARTED, please make sure you are already beginning to fill out our "Team TAKII Coalition Apps" form (which is where you can sign up to purchase a Coalition Sponsorship to begin with): http://takii.pdnmz.com/interaction/team-takii-coalition.html#coalitionapps

Team TAKII's Coalition Sponsorships (good for 1 season of TAKII at a time) currently come in 3 levels: Level 1 ($100), Level 2 ($200), & Level 3 ($300). Each level consists of 6 different components, or "flavors", as outlined below:

Flavor 1/6: Press Releases (issued to dozens of print & online media outlets worldwide & archived on the TAKII site)
Level 1 = company/entity name mentioned in all of our press releases
Level 2 = Level 1 + company/entity URL mentioned in all of our press releases
Level 3 = Level 1 + Level 2 + company/entity quote mentioned in all of our press releases

Flavor 2/6: #1 Contender's Passes (measuring 3 in. x 5in. they are required upon entry to a season of TAKII)
Level 1 = your company logo goes on the flip-side of 25 Passes
Level 2 = your company logo goes on the flip-side of 50 Passes
Level 3 = your company logo goes on the flip-side of 100 Passes

Flavor 3/6: Hardcore Handbook (measuring 8.5 in. x 11 in. it's our ultimate programming guide for the season)
Level 1 = 1/4 pg. (2.125 in. x 2.75 in.) advertisement
Level 2 = 1/2 pg. (4.25 in. x 5.5 in.) advertisement
Level 3 = 1 pg. (8.5 in x 11 in.) advertisement

Flavor 4/6: Hardcore Handbag (filled with goodies & essentials that TAKII attendees have loved for many seasons)
(you will need to ship to us your materials for their inclusion in a Handbag)
Level 1 = promo material included with 25 Handbags
Level 2 = promo material included with 50 Handbags
Level 3 = promo material included with 100 Handbags

Level 2 = name recognition for sponsoring 1 festivity category of your choice
Level 3 = name recognition for sponsoring ALL festivity categories for the season

Flavor 6/6: At-Venue Ads (with over 3000 sq.ft. of space at The Rotunda, there's plenty of prime advert space to go around)
(you will need to ship us your materials for them to be hung at TAKII's venue)
Level 1 = 1 small-sized advertisement no bigger than 8.5 in x 11 in.
Level 2 = 1 medium-sized advertisement no bigger than 42.5 in. x 22 in.
Level 3 = 1 large-sized advertisement no bigger than 85 in. x 44 in.


Upon your purchase of a Coalition Sponsorship from having filled out our "Team TAKII Coalition Apps" form, you will be sent a PayPal invoice to the email address you included in the form itself. Payments can be made online via PayPal (which is preferred), or mailed-in via check/money order (ATTN: PDNMZ, RE: TAKII Coalition Sponsorships, 7112 Penarth Ave., Upper Darby, PA 19082). This payment will need to be received no later than 7 days after your "Team TAKII Coalition Apps" form submission, or the last day of pre-regging for that season of TAKII in particular, whichever comes 1st. In the event that payment isn't received, then your Coalition Sponsorship portion of the form will be rejected.

Any & all logos/promo material can be made in black/white or color; we will not charge you more for 1 choice, or the other. We will require, however, that your images are at least 150-300 DPI & are in either PDF, JPEG, or PNG format for best results. So that the words "paid advertisement" don't have to appear all over the place, we ask that any & all of your ads present yourself & TAKII (& our shared principles for taking Asian culture fandom "to the extreme") in the best light possible. All ad material must be received within 7 days after your payment for your Coalition Sponsorship is confirmed as "received", or the last day of pre-regging for that season of TAKII in particular, whichever comes 1st. Any ads that are found to violate any of our guidelines (ie: inappropriate content, bad specs, etc.) & aren't revised by you to meet our standards in an acceptable time frame will not get your Coalition Sponsorship refunded & can be rejected by Team TAKII Coordinators with/without notice. Other tidbits & frequently asked questions can be found on our Coalition Sponsorship page: http://amen.pdnmz.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=71&t=121

Our Coalition Sponsorship program is only 1 of many ways that you can get involved with The Asian Karaoke Idol invitational, but it is an avenue that allows for you to have a greater impact on how it is we spread our passion for all that is Asian culture fandom to the world & beyond. We thank you in advance for your support & look forward to creating long-lasting memories for many seasons, years, & generations to come! ^_^

pdnmz_takii10:32am: {{ PR }} 3 Main Event Challenges In Time For TAKII 14!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Best In The World: 3 Main Event Challenges In Time For TAKII 14!
PRESS RELEASE FEATURES: Inaugural "TAKII 14 Challenge" contest info, "AMV Battle Royale" guidelines, & a new FUNdraising stop on the TAKII World Tour!
ORIGINAL PRESS RELEASE URL: http://amen.pdnmz.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=149

October 9th, 2012 -- Upper Darby, PA -- Are you "that damn good"? Would you say that you are "the best in the world at what you do"? Some people like say "WHAT!?", or perhaps "it doesn't matter what you think" in the 1st place. In any case, The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational is giving its fans more opportunities than ever to show what they are made of in epic contests against one another in the run-up to TAKII 14 ~New Year's Evolution~, including:

(TAKII 14 CHALLENGE: HALLOWEEN COSTUME CONTEST)
In the weeks & months leading up to this season's TAKII 14 ~New Year's Evolution~, Team TAKII Coordinators will be holding a variety of "Challenges" for our fans worldwide to take part in & put some of their skills to good fusion festival use & be rewarded at the same time ^_^. With Halloween only a few weeks away, The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational couldn't find any other better way to celebrate the season (& give away some prizes) than to hold our 1st annual Halloween Costume Contest! Using characters from within Yu Yu Hakusho (TAKII 14's anime theme), your job is to create a masterpiece of fanart by placing said characters inside of your very own Halloween costume by the October 24th, 2012 deadline. Once all submissions have been received, they will be posted on the TAKII homepage (http://takii.pdnmz.com) & the public will be given a chance to provide their feedback (as Team TAKII Co-Coordinators provide their own in private). On October 31st, 2012, TAKII Co-Coordinator, Cheryl Snyder, will then grade all of the submissions received (based upon a combo of feedback generated & her own critiquing on a 1 (worst) thru 10 (best) scale) & announce our winner, who will then have their artwork featured on badges for TAKII 14 ~New Year's Evolution~. That's not all they'll win, as they will also be the proud recipient of 2 LIFETIME #1 CONTENDER'S PASSES to any & all future seasons of The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational! For more info on "TAKII 14 Challenge: Halloween Costume Contest", please visit it's official page: http://amen.pdnmz.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=147.

(AMV BATTLE ROYALE)
A tried & true artform from Asian culture fandom dating as far back as your old VHS tapes, fanatics get together to compile their favorite video clips from Asian-themed shows against their own choice of music to produce masterpieces that are known as AMVs, or animated music videos. And after taking a hiatus for a few seasons, The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational's "AMV Battle Royale" is back & with a vengeance in time for TAKII 14 ~New Year's Evolution~! But seeing as how we are dealing with "the world's most extreme Asian culture fusion festival", we can NEVER do things the normal or easy way ^_^. As such, TAKII fanatics all over the Universe will be tasked to compose AMVs in the following categories:

* MOST EXTREME
o A freestyle AMV that stretches the confines of reality to a true TAKII extreme
o VIDEO REQUIREMENTS: It must consist of a majority of Asian-themed visuals
o AUDIO REQUIREMENTS: You may use any audio source you'd like
o All other "AMV Battle Royale" rules/restrictions apply

* TAKII 14 CHAMPIONSHIP CHALLENGE
o An AMV challenge of epic proportions that must adhere to the following:
o VIDEO REQUIREMENTS: You can only use footage from TAKII 14's theme
o AUDIO REQUIREMENTS: You may use any audio source you'd like
o All other "AMV Battle Royale" rules/restrictions apply

All entries must be received by December 20th, 2012. Then when TAKII 14 ~New Year's Evolution~ comes around, all qualified AMVs will be shown & judged based upon which 1 gets the most audience applause in each category & TAKII Coordinator scores (in the event of a tie). Will "AMV Battle Royale" be the moment of glory your AMV has been waiting for? If you think you've got what it takes, visit our official TAKII Forum for a complete set of rules & how to send us your submissions RIGHT NOW: http://amen.pdnmz.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=140.

(TAKII WORLD TOUR: GAMEGAME STYLE)
K-Pop superstar Psy might be well known for telling everyone that he want's "a girl with Gangnam style", but we here at The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational declare that we want fanatics that just gotta have GameGame Style! Our newest hopeful regular stop on the TAKII World Tour, GameGame Style takes place from TAKII HQ on November 10th, 2012 at 2:00pm - 8:00pm. For a nominal entry fee of $10 (payable via cash at the door), participants get to compete in a wide variety of gaming tourneys across multiple platforms & mediums, including: Wii (Smash Bros. Brawl, Mario Kart Wii), 360 (WWE '12, Soulcalibur V), PS3 (Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3, Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition), 3DS/DSi (Tetris DS, Mario Kart DS), old school (NES, SNES, etc.), & card gaming (Magic: The Gathering).

As everyone snacks on Asian edibles (prepared by chef D-chan), they will also be racking up points in standard bracketed tournaments (ie: loser is out & winner stays in) based upon the following: 4 points for a win, 2 points for a tie, & 0 points for a loss. After each tourney battle, the players will get to select a Point Stipulation Card that could do the following to their score with the points earned: add it, subtract it, multiply it, or divide it. The reason this is being done is to make those who tend to "plow" through their competition more of a challenge to maintain their point leads & give those who get knocked out "earlier than they are ready" an incentive to keep battling on 'till the very end.

At the end of the evening, point totals will be added up & the following prizes will be awarded: 1st place = 50% of the entry pool (ie: $1000 in entry fees = $500 in prize money), 2nd place = TAKII swag pack #1, & 3rd place = TAKII swag pack #2. For those who might think that GameGame Style might be jam-packed enough as it is....then you obviously don't know how the TAKII World Tour likes to throw a party! In addition to all of the gaming tourney madness, all GameGame Style participants will get FREE #1 Contender's Passes to our upcoming season of The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational, TAKII 14 ~New Year's Evolution~!! BUT THAT'S NOT ALL o.O! On top of all that awesomeness, we will be unveiling unprecedented TAKII news that is going to shake the fusion festival to its very core & resonate all throughout the landscape of Asian culture fandom -- & WE CAN'T WAIT TO SHARE IT WITH YOU ALL, beginning at GameGame Style. For even more info on this stop on our TAKII World Tour, check out: http://amen.pdnmz.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=70&t=137.

As a famous person once said, "every journey starts with a single step". Glorious competitors, it's now time for you all to become "the best there is, the best there was, & the best that there ever will be"; ganbatte, minna-san!!

What do you think? Anyone up for a day out in the park with a projected metereological forecast of mostly clear skies and high temps in the mid-60s?


What: Sakura Sunday (part of the 2011 Philadelphia Cherry Blossom Festival)

When: April 10th, 10:30AM - 4:00PM

Where: Fairmount Park, Horticulture Center, Montgomery Drive & Belmont Avenue (I-76 Exit 341), Philadelphia 19131

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. It has been an amazing journey, putting this season of The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational together, & we can't wait to share the fruits of everyone's combined labor & heart-felt sacrifice with you all. It truly does make our pending ground-breaking announcements for the future of this fusion festival, its parent organization, Prince Diamond's NegaMoon Zone (PDNMZ), & the entire PDNMZ Empire, all the more sweeter. SEE YOU AT THE ROTUNDA IN PHILLY, PA THIS WEEKEND, MINNA-SAN!!!! o^_*o
