We look forward to meeting everyone at SacAnime during a Labor Day Weekend for Robotech fans to remember.

EVENTS:

• Friday , September 3rd •

ANIME GIRL FIGHT
• 7:30 PM - 9:00 @ Main Events
Instead of spending time hanging out with actual girls, would you rather waste a nerdy hour arguing about which anime girls would win in a fight? Then Harmony Gold's Steve Yun has the event for you, as a team of expert panelists argue and vote over this very important topic! Heckling encouraged.


• Saturday, September 4th •

GIANT ROBOT RUMBLE
• 12 NOON - 1:00 PM @ Main Events
Remember when you were in elementary school and you argued with your friends about whether Voltron or Optimus Prime would win in a fight? Well, prepare for the ultimate in nerdy panels: Harmony Gold's Steve Yun hosts a tournament where panelists and attendees argue and vote over which robots would win in a fight. Sixteen robots will enter the arena, but only one will emerge as the victor!

MEET MINMEI
• 3:00 PM - 4:00 @ Main Events
Meet the voice actresses for Minmei and Minmay! Rebecca Forstadt, the voice of Minmei in Robotech, and Mari Iijima, the voice of Minmay in Macross will be holding a Q&A panel together!

ROBOTECH: PAST PRESENT AND FUTURE
• 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM @ Main Events
Join Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles writer Steve Yun as he covers the first quarter century of the animated series that introduced a generation to anime, and discusses upcoming new releases in the wake of the announcement of the live action feature film. We will also remember Carl Macek, the original producer of Robotech who started this whole phenomenon.
