MAX last years ran on july 1st at the club nokia, while it did run at the same time as Anime Expo it showed no anime but instead focused on special guests and events.

Hello Project's Eri did her movie world premier for Kai-ki terror from tokyo as the movie was dubbed, she did 2 screenings which also had a Q&A session and a mini concert.

Animaid cafe: after working so many cons around the US, Animaid cafe no longer was at AX and had gone over to MAX using the whole Club Nokia they filled out the room as most of the money went to charity and preformed shows all night while playing games and serving there masters and mistresses.

Yoshiki charity event: the biggest event of the night Yoshiki donated his own money to needy organizations, showed of clothes inspired by his own imagination, showed off hello kitty items in his image and did a mini concert as well as filming a new music video with the fans who attended the event.

Re: Club 2 the Max, Continuing its Dedication to Support Fans

A few weeks ago Chase Wang went on Anime News Network's podcast where he talked about AM2 (new name for Club2themax) about working and running the con and previous work with Anime expo was pretty interesting, funny to since it seemed like they wanted to egg on Chase to snap on Anime Expo, but what really caught people was talking about doing something with Disney since its next door to the convention center.

Unless I severely misunderstand and misinterpret, S.H.I.E.L.D. might be an area in which my background might actually be useful. I'll check into it. Thanks.

Oh so Anime Expo released info about masquerade prizes totaling 25k split between all the events, and AM2 announced the world cosplay summit with the ability to represent the US in Japan.

Winners Winning Trips to Japan to Represent the USA
2011-02-16

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (February 16, 2011) – Have a sense of showmanship? A great personality? And an impressive crafting and performance creating ability? Come and participate or watch the best of the best as one pair will succeed in the US preliminaries, at this summer’s most anticipated FREE convention AM², to move on and compete on the world stage in Japan on television! More info, rules and attendee registration can be found at www.am2con.org or via the World Cosplay Summit official Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/pages/World-...22191194459337

Begun in 2003, the World Cosplay Summit was created, by TV Aichi and attracts over 15,000 fans to the finals in Japan, to promote international exchange through the Japanese youth culture of manga and anime. The championship is graded on the finish of the costume design and the teams performance on stage. Involving 15 different countries, previous year’s Grand Champions were teams from Italy (2005, 2010), Brazil (2006, 2008), France (2007) and Japan (2009).

AM² representative Chase Wang states, “It’s all about pride and bragging rights as cosplayers will revel in the competition against the best of the best. We are honored to host the World Cosplay Summit at AM². The U.S. has yet to win, let’s do it this year! Join us and have the time of your life this Summer!”
