TAKII 7 ~Simply SINs"ASIAN"al~ was a 2-day celebration of Asian culture's guiltiest pleasures that took place at The Rotunda in Philadelphia, PA on April 25th - 26th, 2009. While entry to the celebration of this 7th season spectacular was free, the moments everyone spent on indulging themselves in everything from yaoi/yuri anime to karaoke were simply priceless. The season's theme design was inspired by the yaoi cult-classic Anime & manga series Gravitation, with the theme song being "WOW", by Yoo Seung Jun (a K-Pop/K-Hip Hop artist). Competition was particularly fierce in all of our record-breaking festivities this season, many of which we will highlight below. Also featuring guest appearances & performances by D-chan, Jia You Shi De (a K-Pop dance troupe), Matt Myers (Lead Vocalist from the LeetStreet Boys), Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad, Jr. (a Beck tribute band), & a host of brand new Team TAKII Coalition Sponsors & Affiliates, TAKII 7 ~Simply SINs"ASIAN"al~ was THE place where "big things were poppin'" all weekend long! From the infamous to the amorously-gay, TAKII fanatics dared to compete....dared to defy the odds....& dared to take it to the extreme! So sit back, relax, & indulge once more in Asian culture's "Deadly SINs"ASIAN"s" (^_*).
Asian Reality TV/Game Shows, Cosplay, Fusion Gaming, Yaoi/Yuri, Obscene Numbers Of Characters, Karaoke, & Asian Drama -- these were the "7 Deadly SINs"ASIAN"s" for the 7th season of The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational ~Simply SINs"ASIAN"al~. Between all of the festivities & the amazing feedback we received, TAKII Coordinators knew that we accomplished our task of celebrating Asian culture appreciation's guiltiest pleasures & them some! At its conclusion, more fans of "the world's most extreme Asian culture fusion festival" came out of the woodwork to show their support & dedicate themselves to assisting us in any Team TAKII Coalition capacity they could (including past acquaintances from the TAKII World Tour's performance at T-Mode 2008, former energy drink sponsors, & Anime inductry officials, to name a few). With a renewed sense of passion & a desire to "raise the bar of fusion festival excellence", TAKII & the rest of the PDNMZ Empire set out to rebirth itself once more, debuting in July 2009 a new site design, details for TAKII 8 ~HoliDAYZE~, & even more shocking surprises to be witnessed & experienced by TAKII fanatics worldwide!! Trust us when we say that the fun has only just begin, minna-san.... ^_*.
