'How To Avoid Hara-Kiri #1', is a survival guide for anime conventions. This book is a result of TheAnimeCon Project. The project itself is intended to educate others about anime culture & anime conventions.
The challenge of writing 'How To Avoid Hara-Kiri: A Guide To Surviving Anime Conventions' (Amazon), was literally trying to write a book about how to survive an anime convention. Not an easy task. The challenge of writing a 2nd tome then becomes, trying to outdo that while attempting to get at what an anime convention is, at the same time.
This Kickstarter is for the 2nd book TheAnimeCon is working on, called 'How To Avoid Hara-Kiri: The Otaku Variable'.
This 2-yr followup delves far greater into breaking down fan conventions, touches on some of the deeper & more taboo subjects in the anime fandom, profiles industry talent from every section of fan culture, features interviews and POVs from some of the biggest names in the industry, illuminates some of the newest trends in the con scene, and has even more snarky tips from everyone's favorite ragtag group of convention goers,
Putting 1 book together has given us a pretty solid formula on how to knock out a 2nd. But upping our game means we have to hire a little bit more help, in order to go above & beyond expectations and deliver a truly sensational production. This Kickstarter helps us commission quality art, make all our current and future products digital, and distribute copies of 'Guide To Surviving Anime Conventions' & 'The Otaku Variable' across North America.
