Anime Detour is proud to announce two new guests this year, Chris Cason and Tony Oliver. We are also proud to announce the return of Kyle Herbert! Please take a look at our Guest page for more information. The guests for Anime Detour 2014 have all been invited and will be announcing them as soon as we can!
If you would like to suggest a guest for Anime Detour 2015, we have opened our Guest Suggestion Form. Due to scheduling of guests this list is for 2015, we need more than a year to get many guests becausing of scheduling. If you want to see someone at Anime Detour this is the place to ask!
Video Suggestion Form - Now Open
This year the Video department is going against the grain with our con-theme room, for obvious reasons. In addition to your regular requests of titles you would like to see at Detour, we are looking for anime titles where either the manga was made after the anime, the anime was produced at the same time as the manga, or the anime does not have a manga at all. We are calling our anti-con theme room "The Anime Came First". Please indicate on the form whether you are making a regular request, or are suggesting a title for the anti-con theme room. The Video Suggestion Form is located here: http://animedetour.com/form_video

More Charity Auction Items!
We've just gotten word that we have even more suprises for everyone at the Chairty Auction. How does a Neon Genesis Evangelion Box (new/uncirculated) that was a prototype created for a tenth anniversary set that ended up not being released sound to you? And even more. All Items will be on display on the first floor of the Hotel in what used to be the Chapel (around the corner from the Video rooms and next to the North Tower Elevators).
All proceeds from the Charity Auction will go the American Red Cross Japan Relief Fund.
Take a Peek at http://www.animedetour.com/charityauction#Evangelion
More rooms still available at the DoubleTree
Its inevitable that every year we have a sizeable number of room cancellations just before the convention. Which is good luck for any of you who are still looking for a room to stay in.
