I generally don’t attend them for most cons so I can’t really compare, but Ninja-Con‘s Opening Ceremonies are always fun!
Bookending the introductions of this year’s Guests of Honor was a musical set by Stephanie Yanez. I last saw her at Anison USA and, as at that appearance, she was joined by the cutesome guitarist from Nakitora! A performance by the Tokari Maids followed, and it included the debut of the Tokari Butlers.

My friend Garp Stavo Sauce looks like he should be working Access Control!
I had the chance to speak briefly with Voice Actor Cas Anvar (Assassin’s Creed: Revelations); he’s a really cool guy!
The Tokari Maids and Butlers enjoyed Stephanie Yanez’ performance before doing their own.
Afterwards, a bunch of the Tokari Maids and Butlers did a dance as well!
Later in the morning after their panel with Lolita Dark, SouLandscape also performed. Since they went on late and I was running around covering some of the other events, I only managed to get a few photos of them. They sounded pretty interesting though so hopefully I’ll be able to catch another show with them soon!
