Event: Fanfiction The Show – Sailor Moon

 

fanfiction_sm2014In case you missed the mentions on our Facebook page and you didn’t hear about this at Anime North – there will be a Sailor Moon themed comedy show on Thursday, June 19th in Toronto.

Fanfiction the Show: Sailor Moon will be featuring both Toby Proctor (Tuxedo Mask #2) and Linda Ballantyne (Sailor Moon #3) this year. Toby also participated last year. At Anime North this year, Toby described it as a comedy show based on Sailor Moon fanfiction with some “blue” humour. He also mentioned that last year it featured Tuxedo Mask being on a dating show where he was asking questions of Sailor Senshi daters.

For fans interested in catching the show next week, it will be at the Comedy Bar, located at 945 Bloor st. west in downtown Toronto (closest subway station is Ossington).

According to the event page on Facebook, doors will open at 7:30pm. The poster indicates that the show is scheduled to start at 9:30pm. The start time has been updated to 9pm, as indicated on the event page on Facebook.

I spoke with someone at the NXNE office, and she indicated that there are two ways for fans to get tickets for the show. You can either have an NXNE wristband (limited seats available) or you can purchase a $10 ticket at the door. The show organizer has also indicated that you can pre-purchase tickets via Comedy Bar (we suggest calling them as we couldn’t find a ticket ordering link on their website).

The artwork featured on the poster, by the way, is by Stjepan Sejic.

Edit: Start time of the show and ticketing information updated.

Edit 2: Poster updated with new time.

Video Interview with Linda Ballantyne

Here’s our first video interview with Linda Ballantyne! I led this interview with her at Anime North 2013. Sorry about the technical difficulties with part three, the camera ran out of battery power and our camera man had some issues recording the end. We will do our best to re-record Linda’s shout out to the fans at our next opportunity.

Hope you enjoy!
