Anime Matsuri is this weekend in Houston, Texas and they are bringing the house down this year with a star studded weekend of guests that will make you feel as if you are spending the weekend in Japan.
They’ve proclaimed April 7th to be Sailor Moon Day, not only in honor of the 25th anniversary of the beloved anime, but also because that’s when the Moon Princess and her entourage fly in to town for the weekend and a special performance of Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon the Musical. Hotaru Nomoto, the 6th actress to Sailor Moon on stage will lead the 9 member cast. The performance takes place Friday, April 7th at 5pm with a Q&A with the cast on Saturday, April 8th from 3-4pm.
@HomeCafe has been one of the top Maid Cafes in Akihabara for years and Anime Matsuri is bringing not only 2 of the premium maids (Chimu & Mizukin) but President Hitomi herself to show you all the reasons why! If you haven’t had the chance to experience a maid cafe before this would certainly be the time to jump right in feet first. The maid cafe will run all weekend long.
Other guests include the Kawaii Ambassador to Japan and famous Lolita Fashion model Misako Aoki, Fumio Osano, the first editor and manager of the Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon manga, Masami Suda -Legendary Artist, Character Designer, Key and Chief Animator for titles like Hokuto No Ken (Fist of the North Star), Gatchaman (Battle of the Planets), Mach Go Go Go (Speed Racer) and Pokemon 2000 movie, world renowned performer Ladybeard…and that is just the beginning of what Anime Matsuri has in store for you this weekend.
