Otaku U 2024

The meaning of Otaku to the club’s Leadership/Consulting Team and their members is being a passionate fan of anime, manga, comics, cartoons, video games, or K-Pop/J-Pop. U is taken from the word university because the convention is being held on our college campus. Our main goal is to create an event for people to come together from an array of fandoms to celebrate and share their enthusiasm with other anime fans, no matter their ages.

Heroes: A Video Game Symphony

Heroes Symphony takes you on a hero’s journey, as set forth by Joseph Campbell’s monomyth; a narrative framework that can be seen in many of the games, film, and books throughout history. Each stage in the monomyth is a chapter in our story, and each game/musical selection was chosen primarily for its suitability for the chapter that it is featured in. In this way, our story is the story of a hero, told through the amazing worlds of other heroes, in an unforgettable experience that’s not to be missed.

Also of note, our story is narrated by the incomparable Nigel Carrington, whose voice many may know from The Chinese Room’s, “Dear Esther.”
