On a hot & steamy August 5th, 2007, The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational celebrated its 4th season, TAKII 4 ~Rhythm D-Generation X-Treme~! As was decided during a The Lost Otakus meeting, the theme design for this season would be Hagane no Renkinjutsushi (Fullmetal Alchemist), with the theme song being "Melissa", by Porno Graffitti (also from the same show). Coordinating everything for TAKII 4 was such a huge undertaking, but one that reaped so many rewards. From trying to figure out which festivities we would debut, to flying out our 1st cross-country guest, to changing & updating the schedule on the fly, it all worked out & played rather well into the fact that we are "the most extreme Asian culture fusion festival"! People as young as 4 & as old as 84, from just around the corner to Chicago & France (YES, France ^_^), from all walks of life were represented & were not disappointed.
In less than 2 years, PDNMZ & TLO were able to team-up & produce 4 full seasons of what everyone knows & loves as the world's most extreme Asian music/gaming fusion festival. The idea for TAKII itself was a dream come true from day 1, with the festival itself proving to be the birthplace of dreams many of our own fans had (ie: Joonaira Entertainment announcing @ TAKII 4 that because of The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational, he was able to get a cultural funding grant from the local government to complete his cosplay documentary, or Rachel from our "Idol Show" kissing me on the cheek for restoring within her a source of confidence ^_^). It is because of all of this that we ended up announcing TAKII would, from now on, expand to no less than 2 days! DOMO to each & every one of you who have made all of this possible; C U @ TAKII 5!
