Yurisai, the September 29 spinoff event from the Yuricon convention on yuri anime and manga, will host the American premiere of Media Blasters' Simoun science fiction anime release at the Gateway Hilton Hotel in Newark, New Jersey. The television series is set in an alternate world where only young female pilots can fly the flying war machines needed to protect the nation of Simulacrum from invasion. Yuricon founder and president Erica Friedman first revealed in May that Media Blasters had licensed the anime.
