Themed Rooms


When you find yourself with a little bit of downtime, and you're not quite sure where you want to hang out, make sure you come check out some of Otafest's themed rooms, which will be in session throughout most of the weekend!

THE AMV ROOM (All weekend; ST 148)
With so many great AMVs out there, how do you pick the best ones? Come out to the AMV blocks, where the most awesome Vlad Pohnert, curator of the world's most comprehensive AMV collection will show you some of the most entertaining AMVs from the past several years! Just sit back and enjoy! Check the schedule for more information on what the various AMV Blocks will be!

Synaptic Chaos Theatre Improv (ST 148 & ST 140)

Check out the Special Guest Programming Package for more info on the shows & panels that SCT will be hosting!

Maid Café (All weekend; TBA)
One of the most curious phenomena to take off in otaku culture today, the maid café has become a staple of any outing to Akihabara. If you find yourself parched or weary, come stop by the maid café and purchase a drink, served to you by a charming maid cosplayer! Please note that due to limited seating, please be courteous to other attendees and limit your time at the café. Advanced seating tickets will be required.
