posted on 2009-03-10 23:57 EDT
The New York Anime Festival and the Kinokuniya Bookstore in New York City will be hosting an Anime Day event on Sunday with panels, giveaways, and a Japanese guest: singer Ai Kawashima. The Samurai Beat Radio streaming station will host this performer of One Piece: The Desert Princess and The Pirates: Adventure in Alabasta's "compass" opening theme and The Place Promised in Our Early Days' "Kimi no Koe" ending theme. The first volume of the Sayonara, Zetsubou-sensei manga will be given to the first 10 fans dressed as the Zetsubou-sensei title character. The first 30 fans, in costume or not, at the event will receive a Soul Eater key holder from Yen Press. The day's panels will cover cosplay, Japan Society's upcoming "Krazy! The Delirious World Of Anime + Manga + Video Games" exhibit, manga drawing, Keio Academy's summer camp, and Karaterice's music-making session with echostream.
Update: Date corrected in the main article. Thanks, KazenoKami
Update 2 The event will only introduce Kawashima's music before her later American debut. Thanks, karenai_hana.
