Guest Reception Reservations Open

This is the attendee’s rare chance to meet up close with the Guests of Honor. You’ll be able to ask Guests questions in a more personal environment while enjoying a buffet style meal being provided by the hotel. Not only can you ask your favorite Guest of Honor questions about his/her work, but possibly get an autograph from them “after” everyone has eaten. This is a must not miss event that you can get in only by purchasing a special invitation! Reservations are extremely limited, and available through the Guest Reception page.

Extremely Hard Take-Home Anime Quiz

This is a multiple-choice, open-book, take-home quiz that begins on the Sakura-con site three weeks before the convention.

You can look up anything you want to get the answer. The questions are so hard that you probably will not know any of the answers from memory. Instead, you will need to do research into the real world of such topics as art, geography, history, literature, music, and science. Hopefully, this will give you a better appreciation of what goes on in anime and some of the hidden meanings behind the material.
