Omfg. They are doing Karaoke at Megacon! XD Yay! That stuff is always entertaining. When people sing well, it's great. When people sing bad, it's BETTER.

Here's a list of anime events for Megacon being hosted by OrangeAnime.com:
Quote:
Orange Anime is proud to announce its programming for MegaCon 2007! In conjunction with Anime Sushi, OA is trying to expand the anime presence at MegaCon, as well as providing plenty of new things to do while you're at the con!

---------------------------
FRIDAY

12PM - Brand New Day, Brand New Anime Panel
Start MegaCon with a discussion of the latest anime airing in Japan, as well as the newest releases here in the States.

1PM - Anime Name That Tune
Compete against other MegaCon attendees in the ultimate test of anime musical trivia.

2PM - DS Tournament (Two hour block)
Bring your DS and battle it out in a Mario Kart multiplayer tournament, or just hang around and trade friend codes while playing other games like Animal Crossing.

4PM – The Weird World of Japanese TV
Japanese television can be quite unusual at times. See for yourself as a host screens some of the strangest clips you’ll see this side of the Pacific.

5PM - Horror in Film and Television
Have a taste for the fiendish and the macabre? Think horror has gotten too gory? Or is it not gory enough? Discuss the state of modern horror with a panel of horror movie aficionados.

6PM to 8PM - Karaoke
Sing the night away, just like they do in your favorite anime. Featuring a selection of both American and Japanese songs, choose your favorite and step up to the mike or just watch the entertaining singing and antics that are bound to ensue.

-----------------------------------

SATURDAY
10AM - DS Tournament
Grab your DS and a cup of coffee to play against others bold enough to enter Orange Anime’s second DS tournament of the con.

11PM – AMV Panel
Always wanted to make your own AMV but don’t know where to start? Join award winning AMV creator Joslyn FitzGerald of Aqua Sky Productions as she explains the basics of what goes into making an AMV.

12PM to 1PM – Anime Name That Tune
Missed the first round on Friday? Choked on the name of the theme song to Genshiken? Got confused between Pretty Cure and Pretty Sammy? Here’s a second chance to show off your unparalleled anime musical knowledge.

1PM to 2PM – Jrock/Jpop panel
Think Hide means to duck behind a column? Improve your knowledge of Japanese pop and rock, or contribute to the discussion as a panel discusses current acts and old favorites.

--------------------------------------

SUNDAY
10AM – King of Fighters Panel
Talk about all aspects of the massively successful King of Fighters franchise

11AM – MMO Panel
From Everquest to World of Warcraft to the upcoming Firefly and Star Trek MMOs, talk about the past, present and future of massively multiplayer online games. Other topics will include PVP vs PVE, the real world sale of game items, free games vs monthly fees, the death penalty in games and MMO addiction.

12PM – Quickdraw Art Contest
Show off your artistic talents in three rounds of quick draw competitions. Prizes will be awarded to the winners.

1PM – Anime 101
What’s the greatest anime of all time? What does the future hold for anime? Debate your opinions with a panel as they discuss all aspects of anime, from the shows themselves to bootlegs, anime cons and cosplay.

2PM – Anime Pictionary
How do you draw “The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya”? How about “Martian Successor Nadesico”? Or “Bleach”? Take part in the action or just watch as two teams struggle for supremacy in pictionary.

3PM to 5PM – Karaoke
Close out MegaCon belting out your favorite American and Japanese tunes in Orange Anime’s karaoke room!

Have no idea. Sometimes cons don't put up all of their events beforehand, but that's just a guess. I'm just glad Orangeanime decided to post it on their forum beforehand.

Megacon likes to post everything last minute, just like they did last year with D'Espairs Ray. Which made us buy weekend passes last minute so we could see them. Very worth it though. Anybody have any info on the sci-fi costume contest? I haven't heard anything on it and they've posted nothing on the site. I hate being so in the dark about it. =\

Thanks for posting that. The only problem is that I'm not really anime. I'm more sci-fi and comics.
