Rare Games Collection Stolen

Date: Sunday August 20th 2006 [15:36] | Posted By: Joe
Category: > Fandom

We've been passed a press release from DDR:uk, a group of hardcore Dance Dance Revolution fanatics, on the 18th of August their equipment was stolen (with the exception of their custom build DDR machine, as it too big to easily move), their £25,000 collection includes a wide variety of rare and sought after games, most of which are no longer in production, along with specialist hardware and games controllers.

Since the items in question are rather unique, we would like to ask community minded otaku to be aware of the items stolen and keep a look out for them on places like popular auction sites, specialist games dealers and other places second hand goods are traded. The DDR:uk crew are offering a reward for any information.

The DDR:uk crew also help run events at anime conventions such as the games room, which was a huge success at AmeCon 2006, with the DDR machine being a huge attraction, along with the more unusual classic games. DDR:uk also put a plea out for hardware and games donation to help replace what was stolen.

On a side note the AmeCon manga library (which is made up of generous donations from Tokyopop and Tanoshimi and is stored with the DDR:uk hardware), was also vanadilised by the same criminals, with boxes of manga thrown out onto the street into the rain, and is now spoiled as a result.

We've deliberatly posted this to all editions of Otaku News, as although the items in question were stolen in the UK, many of the items stolen are rare they're desirable internationally, so all our readers should be made aware.

Category: > Anime

The Mainichi Daily News are currently running an article about the success of anime and manga in the US. Reporting from Anime Expo, the article focuses on how anime and manga is becoming more mainstream and also more popular with girls. This trend has been seen in the US for a number of years now, with female convention attendance growing strongly each year. Interestingly this trend is also being mirrored in other fan events across the world too, four or five years ago UK anime fandom used to be the sole domain of rather geeky males, now the UK anime scene also has growing female attendance, along with more mainstream acceptance.

Anime News Network has announced some bad news for ConnectiCon, the Connecticut-based multi-genre convention dedicated to anime, gaming, webcomics, science fiction, fantasy and more. Thanks to some last minute changes caused by "a series of misunderstandings", the organizers of the convention have incurred over $30,000 of personal debt.

Luckily for ConnectiCon, help is on the way. A group of webcomics, including Apple Geeks, MacHall, VG Cats and more, have organized a drive called "Save ConnectiCon" to help raise funds to help the convention with its financial troubles. The drive is based at a website, which has a members only section for individuals that donate $5.00 or more. This exclusive section includes artwork/wallpapers and other content from the webcomics involved. Also, according to Ananth Panagariya at Apple Geeks, some webcomics will also be putting original art on auction to help in raising money to save the event.

Donations are currently being accepted at the Save ConnectiCon website via Paypal. The drive has already managed to raise over $14,000 in under three days.
