The deadline for emailing the answers is midnight (EST) on August 5th. The winner will be announced on sometime on August 6th.

Since 2001, Green Mustard Productions aka “Wasabi Anime” has been producing events for the ever growing Japanese animation (anime) and pop-culture fandom. This richly diverse genre has reached mainstream proportions over recent years through the popularity of shows such as Pokemon, Dragonball Z, and Fullmetal Alchemist. The film Sen to Chihiro no kamikakushi (Spirited Away) even went as far to win the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature in 2003 signifying a cultural acceptance of the art form in the United States.

Anime Festival Orlando is “Florida's Favorite Anime ConventionTM”. Started by a group of motivated Japanese animation fans in Central Florida, AFO has quickly grown into an annual gathering of “otaku” from all across the United States. The weekend long event features celebrity voice actors, costume contests, dealers selling exotic wares, discussion panels, game shows, dance parties, and many other themed events. Admission is $45 for a weekend pass.
