From the Desk oF the Chairman

Detour Con-goers,

Stop. Can you hear that? It sounds like thunderous footsteps are coming closer.

I see a giant. My stars, were the Mayans right? Could this be the end? Could it be the cute, but ever

destructive, Pikachu? Could it be the towering Godzilla? No! It’s Anime Detour: It came from Japan!

This year has been a busy one for us. We now have space in the Sofitel next to us for more programming wonderment. We’ve brought back Nabeshin and his afro to make us all smile. And most important, you all are coming back.

While this may seem like another year of Anime Detour, for me it is much more. Having been to all but one Detour, I can tell you it’s a special place. That one year I missed I was in Japan, living what many would believe to be a dream come true, but I missed something. That something was Anime Detour. I “took the Detour” and it followed me all the way to Japan. In every town, city, or place I went there was a picture of me in an Anime Detour t-shirt. When I came back from Japan the first thing I did was go to a meeting to see what had happened to my favorite convention. To my delight, it wasn’t a barren wasteland that had been destroyed by Japanese monsters. In fact it was quite the opposite. I saw all my friends, working hard to create an event that means so much to all of us.

What could it be? I think

You can help out too. If you’re in between panels think about volunteering. There’s plenty to do. Head on over to the volunteer room, by the Garden Court, and see what you can do for Detour. As a bonus you may end up with a really cool wall scroll, or those DVDs you’ve been wanting from the dealers room. However, it’s not just about the prizes; you’ll be following a long line of previous members that have truly been a part of this convention and ensured its success. It’s how I got started here at Detour.

So, if you came here from Michigan, Texas, Japan, or even Minnesota please enjoy Anime Detour

2012. If the Mayans are right, it may be our last. But if they are wrong, I look forward to seeing

you next year for our tenth year anniversary!

Sincerely, Stephen Gifford, Jr. Chairman of Anime Detour

ConVention inFormation anD ruLes

generaL ConDuCt ruLes

1. All state, federal, and local laws and curfews should be adhered to during the convention.

If something is illegal outside the convention, it is illegal INSIDE the convention.

2. DISRUPTIVE BEHAVIOR WILL NOT BE TOLERATED: Anime Detour reserves the right to

revoke membership badges for any reason. Unacceptable behavior includes, but is not limited to, things such as: fighting, harassment, damaging or misusing convention/hotel property, stealing, roughhousing, and causing injury or harm to another or yourself.

3. To reemphasize, NO HARASSMENT WILL BE TOLERATED - SEXUAL OR OTHERWISE: Anime

Detour is an event that promotes the diversity of our community. We accept anyone who comes in the spirit of good will and participation.

4. Convention members are to follow instructions given by Anime Detour staff members. If a

staff member asks you to stop doing something, please stop doing it immediately or security will

be notified. If you are asked to move, please move out of the way.

5. If you bring something to the attention of staff, it should be something that involves physical injury,

property damage, theft, or a violation of one of the other rules. Personality conflicts and private troubles will not be with dealt with by convention staff, unless it becomes disruptive to other members.

6. NO SLEEPING IN HALLWAYS OR CONVENTION SPACES: If you want to sleep, you will need

to make arrangements beforehand. No exceptions, we will wake you up and ask you to move.

7. NO UNDERAGE DRINKING! If you are serving alcohol in your room you MUST card! If we

catch you serving alcohol or other illegal items to minors, or if you are a minor and are caught

drinking, your badge will be pulled and the Bloomington Police will be involved.

8. NO CLOGGING UP THE HALLWAYS! We have small hallways in the DoubleTree, and they get

even smaller when you stop to chat with your friends. Please move to an out of the way area to have your conversation. This also pertains to people posing for cosplay photos. Please move out of the flow of traffic when posing for photographs. An area for photoshoots will be made available in the Garden Court. Security will be circulating in an attempt to keep hallways relatively passable. Continual violations and repeat behavior will force us to pull your badge as per order of the Fire Marshal.

9. Please pick up after yourself. Please give the hotel housekeeping staff a break by picking up

after yourself and others. Treat the hotel staff and property with respect.

10. NOISE: Please keep it down during the late night hours. Your fellow convention members are

trying to sleep.

11. LOST AND FOUND: All lost items should be taken to Operations (Room 215). If you have lost

an item, report to Operations to see if it has been found.

12. BADGES: Badges MUST be visible at all times. Anyone found without a badge in the

convention area will be handed over to security. Registration is important; it ensures that we are

able to stage this convention and helps ensure a fun and safe environment for all our members.

13. Please respect the badgers, and show them your badges when they ask. The badgers are

volunteers who are helping make the convention better. If we catch you hassling the badgers, we will pull your badge and escort you out of the convention.

14. ENFORCEMENT: If you observe another convention attendee breaking the rules and/or if

another convention member is creating a disturbance, please report this occurrence to a nearby security member or Operations (Room 215) .

15. EMERGENCIES: In the event of a medical emergency, please contact convention or hotel staff

for assistance or dial 911.

weapons poLiCy

Cosplay guns must be clear facsimiles and be holstered or at your side when you are not posing for pictures. Weapons must be tied, or peace-bonded, at all times. For peace-bonding questions and materials, please visit Operations or consult with cosplay staff.

Anime Detour does not allow guns and other projectile weapons on the premises. Projectiles include, but are not limited to: bullets, pellets, water, lasers, and paintballs. If it has a firing mechanism, it is not allowed (Exception: bows are allowed, as long as you have NO arrows or similar ammunition.) Projectile weapons that have had their firing mechanism altered/removed are also not allowed.

Use common sense; respect your fellow attendees.

Items that are confiscated by security might not be returned to you.

Live steel should be left in the sheath (or scabbard) and peace bonded at all times.

No fighting! This includes sparring and play fighting.

hoteL

The most simple rule is this: Don’t break the hotel. These nice people are kind enough to host us this weekend and it would be rude of us to damage anything. If you need something from the hotel, contact the front desk by dialing “0” from your room phone. If you have a problem or need help with a hotel issue, go to Operations (room 215) and tell them you need the hotel department. Anime Detour’s hotel department is available 24 hours, helping Detour’s staff, members, and the hotel all have a smooth weekend.

SLEEPING IN PUBLIC AREAS: Sleeping in public areas of the hotel (including the video and programming rooms) is prohibited. If you are found sleeping you will be asked to go to your hotel room to sleep. If you do not have a room, please either stay awake or go home.

SMOKING: By hotel policy, smoking is prohibited in all of the official spaces Anime Detour inhabits, including all of the party rooms and sleeping rooms. Smoking is not permitted within 25 feet of any entrance, exit, open window, or ventilation intake.

SIGNS: You may post non-adhesive signs with beige masking tape on painted or wallpapered walls, tile, and metal in approved areas. The removal of any other type of adhesive is damaging and will be treated as vandalism by the hotel. If signs are posted using any other kind of tape, they will be removed and taken to Operations. The rules about where we can put up flyers are driven by the hotel and are sometimes tweaked from year to year. If you have any questions about where it is and isn’t OK to place your flyers, please stop into Operations and ask.

PETS: No animals except working animals. If there are special circumstances speak with operations for possible permissions.

SOLICITATION: No sales are permitted outside of the Dealers Room and Artists Alley.

ROOM REQUESTS: If you have a problem with your reservation or room that the hotel is unable to correct, please visit Operations and ask to speak with our hotel team. They will listen to your problem and advise on what the next steps could be.

PARKING INFORMATION: Although there is a significant amount of parking at the DoubleTree, parking is still limited. Please carpool or use mass transit if possible. If you are staying at a hotel near the DoubleTree, please leave your car at your hotel and walk over to the convention. Please leave parking nearest the DoubleTree for disabled, hotel guests, and convention dealers. Please remember that hotel guests NEED to be able to park their cars.

MASS TRANSIT OPTIONS: The 540 bus stops just outside the DoubleTree and connects to the Mall of America where you can connect with busses to all parts of the metro area as well as the light rail. Most convention activities take place between 9:00am and midnight, so using the bus is a realistic and inexpensive option.

registration

You are responsible for your own badge once it has been picked up. If you lose your badge, you can get it replaced for a non-refundable $40 fee. Your name must be in our system in order for us to issue you a new badge. Badge replacements will not be processed outside of normal hours.

Your badge is for you only. You may not sell, rent, or otherwise give your badge to another person. You may transfer your membership (and your badge) to another person by visiting the registration counter, filling out a transfer form, and paying a $5 fee. Transfers must be approved by a member of registration staff before being processed. Anime Detour reserves the right to spot-check badges for validity. Transfers will not be processed outside of normal hours.

Pre-registered individuals may pick up their badges in operations after hours.

Be one of the first members of Anime Detour 2013 by stopping by the registration counter on Sunday from Noon – 4 PM and pre-register for Anime Detour 2013 for the lowest price possible, $40!

Please refer to department signage for badge pickup procedures and additional policies.

Welcome to Anime Detour, dear con-goers! You may be filled with questions, concerns, or just plain curiosities - both in the convention at large, and the operations department itself. Operations is here to fulfill many of your con-going needs: Questions about programming or locations, first aid supplies, general convention information, etc. We are here to oblige you in these regards! Please feel free to stop by Room 215 on the second floor and pick our brains for what you seek (please, no zombies)!

VoLunteers

Thanks to all of our volunteers for making Anime Detour happen. Without you we wouldn’t be here and it’s not too late to join in on the fun and help out. You’ll find us in room 101 manically plotting ways to find more consuite badgers. So if you’re curious about how Detour is run, want to give back or find yourself with a few free hours and nothing to do we’re not opposed to bribing you with candy and prizes to do our bidding.

Consuite

Come one, come all! Grab a snack to keep you going until you can get a real meal without missing all the fabulous fun of the con. We’re on the lower level by the pool entrance. We have hot rice and cold pop, peanut butter and jelly, chips, sweets, and even some fresh fruit. If you’re nice and your timing is right we may even have ramen.

Remember, the consuite is a snack room. Make sure you grab a real meal or two each day. The hotel will have some great deals going on hot, filling food and you won’t even have to step outside. If you do want a break, step across the parking lot and you’ll find some old favorites.

Keep in mind, lots of people will be coming through. Stay and relax as you eat if you’d like and then move on. Someone else needs a spot to stop awhile and eat too. If you want to hang out longer volunteer and earn cool goodies!

Speaking of volunteering – did you know that if you volunteer you can get into a special consuite? That’s right! Vol-Con has meat and cheese sandwiches, breakfast in the morning, and a greater variety of snacks and foods. So go see the folks at volunteers for more info and fuel up for the con. And always remember to help keep consuite clean by picking up your trash.

C osp L ay p hotoshoots

Who doesn’t love having their picture taken in costume? We are here to help you do just that. From scheduling photoshoots to running around with cameras we help document the con and your costume for Anime Detour. All photos we take will be posted to on the Anime Detour Flickr account after the convention. The southwest corner of the Garden Court will be available for photoshoots and there will again be a photo studio in Stevie Ray’s. Please see the sign outside Stevie Ray’s for times and photographers.

Due to the overwhelming demand and limited space for photoshoots the space will be split for two groups at a time. Two locations within the southwest corner of the Garden Court are listed to differentiate between the groups. There should be a larger group and a smaller group scheduled together so as not to have too many people there at a time.

He has directed comedy anime series such as Excel Saga, Nerima Daikon Brothers, and Puni Puni Poemy, all of which feature frenetic pacing and appearances by his animated alter ego, a mysterious, recurring character with an afro and distinctive outfit who is tangential to the story. Nabeshin has also

served as series director for The Wallflower and Tenchi Muyo! GXP, and he can be found

in these series as well, in cameo or supporting roles. Nabeshin has been quoted as saying that he places

great importance in making viewers laugh. Stating that he values laughter as much as tears, his preference is to motivate viewers to have fun and enjoy a show. He reasons that his success stems from provoking the same, strong emotional investment—in a humorous way—as a traditional, sentimental story does. Nabeshin has also written lyrics for the opening songs of Excel Saga and Tenchi Muyo! GXP, and has served as storyboarder and episode director for a variety of other anime series.

GreG ayres can usually be found rockin’ out somewhere, whether animated or not. From the loud-mouthed Hideki in Nerima Daikon Brothers, to Koyuki in Beck, he’s always glad to shake things up a bit. He’s thrilled to be able to add the roles of Uesugi Kenshin in Sengoku Basara, Seikechi Tayama in Oh! Edo Rocket, and Abe in Big Windup to his list of roles. When he’s not in a booth with headphones on, you can usually find him sporting headphones of another variety behind “the decks”.

Richard and Shannon Townsend had worked as freelancers with several companies, most notably with A2 press on the Tabletop RPG Book “Teenagers from Outer Space: The Landing”. During their time as a small art studio, one young fan had asked them to turn their original characters into a weekly web comic. It was from this pleading that their weekly web comic “Otaku -no- Yen” (geeks without money) was born. In early 2010, the studio brought on long time friend and artist Kimberly Pridemore as a collaborative member. Now that the studio has upgraded, the trio have begun work on a bold new comic project to be released in 2012 among other comics in the works from all members.
