Anime Colony has announced that in conjunction with the Anime Colony/Japan Society New York Anime Film Festival (NYAFF) and the Kichijoji Character Festival, the Anime Colony will be hosting three online chats events with honored guests for all anime fans (attendees or non-attendees alike) to participate. All chats are free and enable the public to ask questions regarding their work, their opinions and their lives as well as coverage of both festivals. Instructions to log on below.

FRIDAY, 12 MIDNIGHT, Eastern Time:
Aeon Flux creator Peter Chung will be present at the NYAFF to introduce his latest anime Alexander which was created in conjunction with the popular Madhouse Studios. He'll be online to field questions regarding Alexander, Aeon Flux and art and whatever else people will throw at him.

SATURDAY, 12 MIDNIGHT, Eastern Time:
For the first time in history, Anime Colony will be hosting a 3-way moderated chat between 2 major anime festivals and the audience. Host HIROYUKI KITAKUBO (Blood: The Last Vampire, Black Magic M-66, Roujin Z) will be speaking from Kichijoji with honored guests from the NYAFF. Each side will give brief coverage on what's going on at their end and answer questions regarding the animated medium.

SUNDAY, 10 PM, Eastern Time:
Coming full circle, the NYAFF will conclude with honored guest KUNIHIKO IKUHARA, the director of the popular series Sailor Moon and the co-creator and director of Revolutionary Girl Utena.
