For 6 seasons, The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational reveled in "Rebirth", "Video Game Ecstacy", "Rhythm D-Generation X-Treme"s. For our landmark 7th season, we have decided to delve deep into the innermost recesses of Asian culture fandom & bring to you TAKII 7 ~Simply SINs"ASIAN"al~, taking place at Philadelphia, PA's The Rotunda on April 25th - 26th, 2009. "Too much of a good thing" is now replaced with "taking it to the extreme" as we celebrate the spectacles affectionately known as TAKII's "7 Deadly SINsASIANs"!

As TAKII 7 approaches, the Team TAKII Coalition will announce on the festival's official website 7 Asian entertainment enigmas attendees will have the chance to enjoy in an environment unlike anything ever experienced before. While enjoying such events as the "Asian Karaoke Idol Show", "Cosplay Battle Royale", "StepMania Shining Stars", & other classic & premier festivities, TAKII fans will get to indulge themselves in the worlds of yaoi/yuri (gay/lesbian)-themed entertainment, video gaming that expands through all generations, a re-vamped "Makenai: Fusion Charity Benefit Concert", & much more. TAKII 7 ~Simply SINs"ASIAN"al~ attendees will also be witness to the fusion festival's venue expansion, giving you twice as much space to enjoy the most intense season of TAKII in history.

Be-it as an attendee, panelist, guest/performer, artist/dealer, or Team TAKII Coalition Volunteer, we offer multiple ways that you can celebrate this fabulous fusion festival with us & TAKII fans all over the world. Those who wish to enter any of our championship competitions & want to win unlimited swag & exclusive perks (including online giveaways) can purchase a #1 Contender's Pass at a special pre-registration rate of $4.00 per person. For your inner-exhibitionist, we have Table Slots available at a special pre-registration rate of $20.00 per table. Registrations for each (available in limited quantities for each pre-reg period) can be submitted via our "Registration" page (http://takii.pdnmz.com/registration.html).

Since its debut on Day 1 of TAKII 6 ~NintenDecision 2008~ on October 25th, 2008, TAKII's Asian Multimedia Entertainment Network (AMEN) has proven to be 1 of the most innovative & effective brands that the fusion festival spectacular has to offer. As both an online broadcasting & social network, TAKII: AMEN is every otaku's answer to free 24/7 TAKII entertainment, complete with audio shows ("AMEN X-Stream"), video presentations, the highest level of personal customization around (create your own online clubs, style your own profile, & use our own "AMEN Instant Messenger"), & unique opportunities of expression (posting ads in our "Otaku Classifieds", expert blogging, & multimedia submissions), among many unparalleled facets. In concert with TAKII 7, Asian Multimedia Entertainment Network will offer TAKII fanatics the rare opportunity to enjoy this Simply SINs"ASIAN"al season with exclusive programming & online contests geared towards this season's TAKII "7 Deadly SINsASIANs".
