KotoriCon Policies It is important that guests planning to attend KotoriCon read and understand our policies. Scan the QR code to go to our complete list of policies with examples. Everyone is expected to follow the rules. KotoriCon staff work hard to provide a safe, family-friendly environment. Convention policies range in scope from permitted props and weapons to lost children. Some of the policies include: Disruptive Behavior Policy: Action will be taken if something is considered dangerous or disruptive. Smoking: Smoking is prohibited inside campus buildings. Smoking is allowed outside ONLY in designated areas. This includes e-cigarettes. Photographing Guests: KotoriCon’s guests have the right to maintain their privacy. Convention members may be asked to refrain from photographing guests who prefer not to have their picture taken. Please Remember • Guests will join con-goers for a photo opportunity if they choose to have their picture taken. • Photographers may not post pictures taken at KotoriCon for sale online or solicit payment from attendees. • When stopping to take photographs in the hallways, please be considerate of fellow con goers. Be brief and do not block traffic. Children at KotoriCon KotoriCon is a family-friendly event with programming for ages 13 and older. This policy is to ensure the safety of the younger attendees.

For More Information All decisions made by KotoriCon staff are final.  Please ask a Security Team member or Staff member if you have concerns. 4


Charities

KotoriCon volunteers work hard all year not just to put together a fun event but it is also a charity fundraiser. This event is run by students at Rowan College at Gloucester County to raise money for Charities they selected. For more information, please scan the QR Code for the Charities Page on our Website.

KotoriCon Scholarship Endowment This endowment supports students who have dedicated their time and skills to community service and embrace the spirit of volunteerism. It is open to Rowan College at Gloucester County students​. The Japanese Anime Guild is building this endowment so the scholarship will be perpetual. It is administered by the Rowan College Foundation at Gloucester County and recipients are selected by the Scholarship Committee of the College Assembly.​​

LINK Liberty in North Korea is a non-profit organization that works to empower the people of Northern Korea. LINK is responsible for rescuing, habilitating and accl​imating refugee​​s for a life outside of North Korea. LINK Volunteers travel around the United States sharing their message of hope, educating others on the plight of the North Korean people, and encouraging activism at home.

Seabrook Buddhist Temple Approximately 500 families of Japanese ancestry who lived and worked at Seabrook Farm started the Seabrook Buddhist Temple in 1945. By 1965 the Seabrook Buddhist Sangha (congregation) received independent temple status and the 20th anniversary of its founding was observed. 1968 saw the groundbreaking for the current temple situated on 7 acres of land less than one block from Route 77. In 1983 the temple was incorporated as a non-profit facility. In 1986 a home for the resident Sensei was constructed and in 1988 a meditation garden was added. For 70 years the hard working and dedicated Sangha have developed a welcoming atmosphere for people to gather to hear the Buddha-Dharma (the teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha).​​​​

Mothers Matter The Mothers Matter program was born in 2001 with a donation of $100 and a wordof-mouth collection drive that generated enough women’s personal care and beauty products to fill 265 baskets that were given as Mother’s Day gifts to women at three day care centers and two shelters in the city of Camden. 5


Voice Actors For more information on each guest, scan the QR code to take you to our webpage that includes more information.

Daman Mills Yes, I am Daman Mills - and you could say that I am quite... the Lionheart! I have been all over the United States in my life - including Hawaii, New York City, and even New Jersey for Kotoricon! Recently, I have been a prisoner, a misunderstood prince, a mobile suit pilot, and yet I still find time to aspire to be the -perfect- voice actor! Did I mention that I am also a famous ice skating coach? You find yourself impressed by Daman’s clever wordplay. Memories of Jyugo (Nanbaka!), Yzak Joule (Gundam Seed & Seed Destiny Remaster), Monaka (Dragon Ball Super), Yakov Feltsman (Yuri!!! On Ice), Leonardo Lionheart (RWBY), and Kai von Glanzreich (The Royal Tutor) flood your mind. With such an overpowering blend of personality, you are powerless to resist. The correct choice is obvious.

♥ Ask Daman Mills how he undertook so many roles so quickly ♥ Go watch more anime starring Daman Mills ♥ Swoon ► Faint in front of Daman Mills

Kotoriful Tip!!! A Bird loves voice actors! Take him to your favorite voice actor panels to level up your affection with him!

Voice Actors

Alejandro Saab Do you like guessing games? Let’s see how many of these you can figure out! I have been a detective, a spy, an (athletic!) tsundere prince, a love-seeking high school student (not to be confused with that one time I was a cheerleader), a mayor... and I can even -abridge- some works if you’re short on time! Bet you can’t guess what else I do! Your mind is a swirl of emotion and intrigue. You know that you are speaking to the man behind Leonhard von Glanzreich (The Royal Tutor), Laurence (Izetta: The Last Witch), Soichiro Suzuki (Cheer Boys!!), Naomasa Tsukauchi (My Hero Academia), and more recently Junichi (My First Girlfriend is a Gal), but there is certainly more to him than meets the eye. What else lies below his fierce exterior?

♥ Ask him to draw you something ♥ Search for KaggyFilms on YouTube ► Watch one of his videos ♥ Call him a fraud

Natalie Hoover Hey there! I’m Natalie! I don’t know if you’ve heard of me; I’m kinda just passing through. But I will tell you that I’m a pretty good cook (even though my cooking will probably make you put on weight), and I’ll always be there to support my friends (especially if they’re trying to be idols)! Oh - then there was that time where I was a fairy-tale themed goddess... I’m really kinda all over the place... You are obviously impressed by Natalie’s eclectic mix of interests and accomplishments. She has lent her voice to characters like Yamada (New Game!), Kinue Hayase (Masemune-Kun’s Revenge), Fumiko (Love Live!), and Monophanie (Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony). As your lips begin to quiver, you wonder what other incredible feats this woman may be capable of. The words in your heart get stuck in your throat... what is your heart saying?

♥ Attend her Q&A Panel at Kotoricon ► Ask her about Voice Acting and her other work in the industry ♥ Ask her for her origin story ♥ Say nothing and offer her the lunch you are holding 7


Voice Actors

Michaela LaWS Well what can I say? I love telling stories, and I’ve always been a creative-type! Ever heard of “Seduce Me?” I wrote it. I directed it. I even acted in it! Why? Because I wanted to, that’s why! Geez, you act like I’m some kind of “hopeless romantic” or something. I’ve done other voices too! Which character was my favorite to voice? Well Yandere-Chan of course! What is this mysterious feeling you feel? Certainly you have heard of Diana (Seduce Me & Seduce Me 2: The Demon War), Rosa (Remember, Remember), Mameha Kurosaki (Vanity High), and Yandere-Chan (Yandere Simulator). Well you better have, at least. What are your options?

♥ Consider yourself seduced ♥ Ask her if she can sing too (SHE CAN) ► Tell her that you’re a demon who has come to steal her soul​

mICHELE kNOTZ Squirtle, Squirtle! Bulbasaur-saur! Piplup, Pi-piii!! Gardevoir... Ha ha! I fooled you, didn’t I? I’m Michele Knotz - master of disguise! I hail from the magical land of New Jersey, and I have perfected my technique through my travels around the world! My talents have been used to help Team Rocket in the past... but I’m not a bad person...

You knew that you found the sounds of these various pokemon creatures suspicious, and this seems awfully like a ruse that the infamous Jessie of Team Rocket would attempt. Still, you know that Michele is responsible for the voices of Carina (One Piece Film: Gold), Sanae Shikikagami (Ladies Versus Butlers), and many others. It is time to decide...

8

► Give her your best Pokemon impersonation ♥ Steal her disguise out of jealousy and use it for yourself ♥ Nervously ask her about her future plans (nervously)


Voice Actors

Jamie McGonnigal I am very busy right now! Don’t you know who I am? Why, I am Jamie McGonnigal that’s who! I have been invited to every Kotoricon since 2010, and when I am not at home in Washington D.C. I spend my time fighting for truth, justice, and equality around the world! Now if you don’t mind, I must be on my way. This man is obviously in a rush, just as you feel your blood rush every time you see his face. Did you want to ask him about Pokemon (where he voiced the equallyharried Barry)? Or was it Viva Pinata (where he went by Teddington Twingersnap)? You need to choose your next words wisely...

♥ Ask him about his advocacy for AIDS awareness ► Cause an uproar ♥ Ask him about his work as a director and producer ♥ Be intimidated like a startled Whismur and say nothing

James Carter Cathcart ♫ Oooo yeah I’m Jaaaaaames ♫ ♫ And I voice James! ♫ ♫ But that’s not aaaaaaall! ♫

♫ I can siiiing ♫ ♫ And play the piano toooooo! ♫ ♫ Don’t be appalled! ♫

You feel yourself drifting away on the lofty tones of James’ voice. It is as though you are floating on a cloud of comfort and humanity. Under the spell of the voice that gave life to Gary Oak, a talking Meowth, and Kit Kat Bars, you understand that such lyrical genius is only expected of the man who writes the English scripts for the Pokemon series. How is one to respond to such prowess?

♥ Forget that he also voiced Weevil Underwood in Yu-Gi-Oh ♥ Ask him how much he practices to be so good at what he does ♥ Continue to drift away ► Get lost in his rock n’ roll 9


Performers Scan the QR code for schedules, links and more information on our performers!

+2 Comedy Noah: Hi, I’m Noah. I enjoy long walks on the beach and candlelit dinners for two. Will: Yeah, he’s also engaged! Noah: Man, shut up! I’m trying to promote the Cosplay Dating Game! Will: We’ve been doing this for... how many years now? I think the people know what we’re about - we’ve even added new members to the group! Noah: You could say that we’re now... “2+2 Comedy!” Will: ...Don’t ever say that again Noah.

You can only raise a confused eyebrow at the erratic actions of these men. Despite your familiarity with them, you cannot help but feel flustered by their charisma and witty banter. Nonetheless, time is escaping you. Decision time!

► Start a breakdance routine in an attempt to impress them ♥ Witness their stand-up comedy act in BCC 500 ♥ Volunteer to be a contestant in the Cosplay Dating Game on Saturday Night

Performers

Dragon Jedi Hey, remember that time when [SPOILER REDACTED]? Yeah, well that’s pretty much what we do too! We also try to [SPOILER REDACTED] and [MAJOR SPOILER REDACTED] as well! Hey, what’s wrong? You look kinda... angry... You find yourself incensed by this group’s flagrant disregard for your social and literary preferences. You can feel your ire welling up within you like molten lava inside an active volcano, ready to erupt. Yet still, you are a fan of Star Wars. What can you do but forgive these people for just being human?

♥ Something, something, something, “Dark Side” ♥ Something, something, something, “Complete” ♥ Go to the Fine Arts Center and watch their skillful performance ► [SPOILER]

Mystic Realms Here ye, here ye! Nah, just kidding - we’re The Mystic Realms LARP (Live-Action Roleplay) Group! We’re one of the oldest LARP groups in the country, having been doing this for over 18 years - not that we like to brag or nothin!’ From Fantasy to Zombie Apocalypse and more, there’s something here for everyone. Why don’t you brave lookin’ adventurers step on into our “Danger Room” here at KotoriCon and show us what you got?

You stand at the doorway of the Danger Room, having survived it in years past. Yet surely these people would not return to Kotoricon without something new to test your mettle, acuity, and devotion to those you care about. It does sound dangerous, but when was the last time an adventurer was ever steered wrong? What way forward do you see?

♥ Push past the gatekeeper and challenge the new (and improved) Danger Room

♥ Return to the (not-as-dangerous) starting area ► Ride into the DANGER ZONE 11


Musical Guests KotoriCon staff bring some great music to the stage again this year. For more information on these musicians, scan the code to go to the page on our website.

The Slants I’m Simon, and together with my friends Ken, Joe, and Yuya, we are The Slants! You’re from New Jersey? Well we’re from Portland, Oregon! And we’ve come to Kotoricon to show you our unique brand of music. We call it “Chinatown Dance Rock!” Oh, and did I mention that we won a case that went all the way to the United States Supreme Court? Yeah! We can now legally use the name that we made for ourselves as a Trademark! 8 years well spent, right?

You are curious as to what this “Chinatown Dance Rock” sounds like. You are also beguiled by Simon’s origin story and claims of legal prowess. You stare into the eyes of each band member... you feel your heart beating through your chest... you know what you must do.

♥ Book a flight to Portland, Oregon ♥ Buy some Slants-themed merchandise ► Study law in an attempt to impress the band members

Kotoriful Tip!!! All these bands ha v e g o t moving to Jackie G reen the music ! Learn so moves, a me swee nd you c t an catch his eye!

Musical Guests

Kazha Hi, I’m Kazuha, and this is my band, Kazha! All the way from Japan! I play with Hideki, my guitarist, and Masaya, my drummer. Have we been here before? Yes! In 2016! But we came back because we missed Kotoricon! And you! You feel a strange longing in your heart. The same longing that Kazuha must have felt before she finally formed the rock band of her dreams in 2009. Your mind imagines what it must have been like to tour across Europe and Asia, playing the music that will fill the gaping void in your soul. What will you do?

♥ Go watch Kazha’s show in the Fine Arts Center ♥ Visit Kazha’s table in KotoriCon’s Artist’s Alley ► Buy a T-Shit and DVD for your collection ♥ Fangirl

The ASterplace My name is Kota Tsukimoto, and I am the leader of The Asterplace. We come to KotoriCon in peace from Japan, just as we have for many years. We travel the earth to bring beauty through our music. “As the sun shines upon the world, as the moonlight upon the atmosphere, The Asterplace projects their music to the world.” Is that not... poetic? Enchanted by the enigma he exudes, your mind is a mishmash of mystery, fascination, and general befuddlement. Despite the questions that burn the inner recesses of your psyche, you feel a certain familiarity with him. Almost as if... you already know him... The choice is yours.

► Challenge Kota to a “Cola Contest” ♥ Ask him where you can buy merchandise to support the band ♥ Visit the Fine Arts Center on Saturday and witness their performance ​ 13


Musical Guests

Spellbound Strings Oh. Hello. I’m Samantha Gillogly. This is Sae, that’s Tina, and over there is Shayne. They call us “The Spellbound Strings.” Have you ever heard your favorite songs from movies, video games, and anime played on a quartet of string instruments? It really is quite breathtaking - even... “Spellbinding” as some would say! You sense an air of tranquility emanating from these people; an air that makes you feel calm and secure like an orphaned child who has finally found acceptance in a new home. Surely you like movies, video games, and anime, and of course you love music, but what is this strange sensation you feel?

♥ Ask the band members about their favorite songs ♥ Run to the Fine Arts Center and observe their “spellbinding” performance

► Stop by their table at Artist’s Alley and “shoot the breeze”

Hoh Daiko Taiko Drummers HI *thwump* WE *thwump* ARE *thwump* HOH *thwump* DAIKO *twump* TAIKO *thwump thwump*!! We come from the Seabrook Buddhist Temple to get people PUMPED UP and energized with our drumming! *thwump thwump thwump* Have we made your heart beat faster yet?! *thwump* GOOD NOW YOU’RE FEELING IT! As your pulse begins to increase with the beat of the drum, you can feel your feet start to shift and your arms move on their own. You are aware that the Taiko Drum is one of the most easily-recognized exports from “The Land of the Rising Sun,” but you have never heard what an entire legion of them might sound like. What do you do?

14

♥ Learn some traditional dances for the OBON Festival at Seabrook Buddhist Temple

► Ponder how they can beat such big drums with such small sticks ♥ Sit in the Fine Arts Center early on Saturday and watch the drummers in action
