Brian here once again. Before I start this late night post at 1AM local time, let me first congratulate a friend of mine from the AnimeNEXT universe, Lisa Cornelius, who just became Lisa Young on June 1. Congratulations, Lisa, to you and the mister. I wish you two all the best, and if he gives you any grief, you come and see me, because you are part of the circle of marriage now, and we need to do everything in our power to keep that circle strong.
And with that shoutout out of the way, we can now move on to another shout out (spacing intentional).
Yes, that’s right, we’re heading back to Baltimore once again, for our 4th year, and the 1st for Anime Game Show Super Show. And oh boy, get ready for a big party, because we’re coming with 90 minutes of action! That’s right, we’re gonna be playing THREE shows for our fans down there: BODY LANGUAGE, CARD SHARKS, and of course, PRESS YOUR LUCK.
We were very surprised to har that Otakon is going to let us play a 90-minute show. I had one with Disorganization XIII at my first Otakon in 2009, though I didn’t know it was 90 minutes. That’s another story for another day. Fast forward, then, to last year’s edition of Anime Press Your Luck, which brought us one of our biggest live audiences ever, as well as some of the best Whammy Cosplayers we’ve ever had, not to mention great gameplay. Otakon has always been our season finale, and fittingly, our biggest show of the year. So if you thought last year was a heck of an experience, wait until Anime Game Show Super Show comes to town.
And here is where I turn to all of you, our fans. If you know us and love us, be there like you always have. But at the same time, tell your friends about us, too, and bring them here, because I’m sure that there are many fans out there who don’t know about our name change, and might still be expecting to see Anime Press Your Luck. Tell them to not let the name fool them. Let them know that it’s still gonna be there along with more of the world’s favorite game shows. And when that music hits, we plan to blow the roof off of the Baltimore Convention Center.
So come one, come all! Join us for the biggest game show of the year, Anime Game Show Super Show, coming to Otakon in July. We hope to see you all there.
(That means you too, Liz, whereever you are. I know you’re out there waiting to be a contestant again. We’re waiting for you.)
