Types of panels

Discussion

The majority of panels are standard discussion-led panels, generally with 1-4 presenters. Examples include fan panels, guest Q&As, etc. Discussion panels generally run 1-2 hours.

  • Anime (discussion of a specific anime or type of anime,
    these can also be ran by panelists in cosplay character)

  • Cosplay (discussion of "how to", "tips and trick of", or "lifestyle of" types of things)

  • Popular Culture (discussion of all other types of popular culture not specifically Japanese)

  • Gaming (discussion of all things gaming)

  • Lolita (discussion of all things Lolita)

  • Japanese Culture (discussion over all of the different types of culture in Japan)

  • Art/Writing (how to draw, write, and produce art/books/manga)

Interactive

An interactive panel is one that requires physical participation from the attendees in the audience. For example, a panel wanting to teach the latest kpop choreo that requires attendees to get up and move, would be considered an interactive panel. A cosplay panel

that has hands-on involvement would also be considered interactive.  Interactive panels

run in increments of 1-2 hours.

  • Game Shows (run by panelist in cosplay character or just by enthusiastic game show host)

  • Art/Writing (how to draw, write, and produce art/books/manga)

  • Kpop dance (showing off and learning the latest Kpop choreography)

Demonstration

Demonstrations are presented by local area groups who meet certain requirements. Demos generally run in 30 minute increments. Demonstration groups interested in submitting demos should review the Code of Conduct for Tokyo, OK requirements.  

Please note, submission of requested materials does NOT guarantee acceptance.
