From the Desk of the Chairman
Each year we hold Anime Detour and each year you come. This year, not only have we sold out, we sold out
faster than all previous years. Our staff has been hard at work trying to make it better and better. Whatever
your reasons for being here, we welcome you and your stories. It is not just the staff that make the con,
it’s also the con-goers, and the volunteers. We can’t do this without you. Yes, you. Together we can build
something that is greater. If you find yourself bored or between panels, try volunteering. Sure there are prizes
for volunteering, but the real reward is that you can tell others you were able to be a part of it. You were a part
of the stories that were told.
My personal story began as a con-goer like yourself. I went to Anime Detour during year one, and didn’t
know what to expect. It wasn’t until year two that I truly started understanding Detour. That year I
volunteered. By the end I was so tired that I slept for 12 hours. However, on waking I felt somehow different. I
had helped people I didn’t know; I helped people that liked anime; I helped put on an event that changed me.
The next year I “took the Detour”. I joined staff. That is when I started hearing similar stories from others.
Over the years, so many stories have been shared with me. One person came because she had never been able
to share her love of anime with anyone and at Detour she could. Another came because he and his friends
chose Detour as their place to meet each other every year. My favorite story was told to me by the nurse who
came to Detour to take care of a guest of honor. She told me that after coming to this convention that she
understood her daughter more. She had known that her daughter liked anime but never understood why.
Seeing everyone celebrating, reveling, and discussing Japanese cartoons and manga helped her learn so
much more about her daughter. She thanked me that night, and I could only say, “You’re welcome.” I was too
choked up to say anything more. I’m not the only one she should have thanked. It should have been all of you.
So thank you. To you who give us your time without asking anything in return. To you who want this
convention to succeed and try to improve it by doing more than what is asked. To you who donated to all the
charity funds that have helped people in places we may never go to. Thank you.
We come for our own reasons but we stay because we find something here that is more than us. Each of your
stories is different. But I hope they all end the same, “I can’t wait for next year!” So please enjoy your stay here
at Anime Detour. And I ask that you always . . . take the Detour.
Sincerely,
Stephen Gifford, Jr.
Chairman of Anime Detour

Convention Information and Rules
General Conduct Rules
1. All state, federal, and local laws and curfews must be adhered to during the convention. If something is
illegal outside the convention, it is illegal INSIDE the convention.
2. DISRUPTIVE BEHAVIOR WILL NOT BE TOLERATED: Anime Detour reserves the right to revoke
membership badges for any reason. Unacceptable behavior includes, but is not limited to: fighting, harassment, damaging or misusing convention/hotel property, stealing, roughhousing, and causing injury or harm
to another or yourself.
3. To reemphasize, NO HARASSMENT WILL BE TOLERATED - SEXUAL OR OTHERWISE: Anime
Detour is an event that promotes the diversity of our community. We accept anyone who comes in the spirit
of good will and participation.
4. Convention members are to follow instructions given by Anime Detour staff members. If a staff member
asks you to stop doing something, please stop doing it immediately or security will be notified. If you are
asked to move, please move out of the way.
5. Please only come to staff with issues involving physical injury, property damage, theft, or a violation of one
of the other rules. Personality conflicts and private troubles will not be dealt with by convention staff, unless
they become disruptive to other members.
6. NO SLEEPING IN HALLWAYS OR CONVENTION SPACES: If you want to sleep, you will need to make
arrangements beforehand. No exceptions. We will wake you up and ask you to move.
7. NO UNDERAGE DRINKING! If you are serving alcohol in your room you MUST card! If we catch you
serving alcohol or other illegal items to minors, or if you are a minor and are caught drinking, your badge
will be pulled and the Bloomington Police will be involved.
8. NO CLOGGING UP THE HALLWAYS! We have small hallways in the DoubleTree, and they get even smaller
when you stop to chat with your friends. Please move to an out of the way area to have your conversation. Please
move out of the flow of traffic when posing for photographs. Areas for photoshoots will be made available in the
Garden Court and main Lobby. Security will be circulating in an attempt to keep hallways relatively passable.
Continual violations and repeat behavior will force us to pull your badge as per order of the Fire Marshal.
9. Please pick up after yourself. Please give the hotel housekeeping staff a break by picking up after yourself
and others. Treat the hotel staff and property with respect.
10. NOISE: Please keep it down during the late night hours. Your fellow convention members are trying to sleep.
11. LOST AND FOUND: All lost items should be taken to Operations (Room 215). If you have lost an item,
report to Operations to see if it has been found.
12. BADGES: Badges MUST be visible at all times. Anyone found without a badge in the convention area
will be handed over to security. Registration is important; it ensures that we are able to stage this convention
and helps ensure a fun and safe environment for all our members.
13. Please respect the badgers, and show them your badges when they ask. The badgers are volunteers who
are helping make the convention better. If we catch you hassling the badgers, we will pull your badge and
escort you out of the convention.
14. ENFORCEMENT: If you observe another convention attendee breaking the rules and/or if another
convention member is creating a disturbance, please report this occurrence to a nearby security member or
Operations (Room 215).
15. EMERGENCIES: In the event of a medical emergency, please contact convention or hotel staff for assistance
or dial 911.
CONVENTION RULES

Weapons Policy
Cosplay guns must be clear facsimiles and be holstered or at your side when you are not posing for pictures.
Weapons must be tied, or peace-bonded, at all times. For peace-bonding questions and materials, please visit
Operations or consult with security staff.
Anime Detour does not allow guns and other projectile weapons on the premises. Projectiles include, but
are not limited to: bullets, pellets, water, lasers, and paintballs. If it has a firing mechanism, it is not allowed
(Exception: bows are allowed, as long as you have NO arrows or similar ammunition.) Projectile weapons
that have had their firing mechanism altered/removed are also not allowed.
Use common sense; respect your fellow attendees.
Items that are confiscated by security might not be returned to you.
Live steel should be left in the sheath (or scabbard) and peace bonded at all times.
No fighting! This includes sparring and play fighting.
Hotel
The most simple rule is this: Don’t break the hotel. These nice people are kind enough to host us this weekend and it would be rude of us to damage anything. If you need something from the hotel, contact the front
desk by dialing “0” from your room phone. If you have a problem or need help with a hotel issue, go to
Operations (room 215) and tell them you need the hotel department. Anime Detour’s hotel department is
available 24 hours, helping Detour’s staff, members, and the hotel all have a smooth weekend.
SLEEPING IN PUBLIC AREAS: Sleeping in public areas of the hotel (including the video and programming
rooms) is prohibited. If you are found sleeping you will be asked to go to your hotel room to sleep. If you do
not have a room, please either stay awake or go home.
SMOKING: By hotel policy, smoking is prohibited in all of the official spaces Anime Detour inhabits, including all of the party rooms and sleeping rooms. Smoking is not permitted within 25 feet of any entrance, exit,
open window, or ventilation intake.
SIGNS: You may post non-adhesive signs with approved blue painter’s tape on painted or wallpapered walls, tile,
and metal in approved areas. The removal of any other type of adhesive is damaging and will be treated as vandalism by the hotel. If signs are posted using any other kind of tape, they will be removed and taken to Operations.
The rules about where we can put up flyers are driven by the hotel and are sometimes tweaked from year to year.
If you have any questions about where it is and isn’t okay to place your flyers, please stop into Operations and ask.
PETS: No animals except working animals. If there are special circumstances speak with operations for
possible permissions.
SOLICITATION: No sales are permitted outside of the Dealers Room and Artists Alley.
ROOM REQUESTS: If you have a problem with your reservation or room that the hotel is unable to correct,
please visit Operations and ask to speak with our hotel team. They will listen to your problem and advise on
what the next steps could be.
PARKING INFORMATION: Although there is a significant amount of parking at the DoubleTree, parking is still limited. Please carpool or use mass transit if possible. If you are staying at a hotel near the
DoubleTree, please leave your car at your hotel and walk over to the convention. Please leave parking nearest
the DoubleTree for disabled, hotel guests, and convention dealers. Please remember that hotel guests need
to be able to park their cars.
MASS TRANSIT OPTIONS: The 540 bus stops just outside the DoubleTree and connects to the Mall of
America where you can connect with busses to all parts of the metro area as well as the light rail. Most convention activities take place between 9:00am and midnight, so using the bus is a realistic and inexpensive option.

WEAPONS POLICY/HOTEL INFO
Registration
BADGE PICK UP: A government-issued photo ID must be shown
before we will issue an adult badge. If you cannot prove your age, you
will be issued a minor badge. Anime Detour reserves the right to not
issue a badge to anyone who can’t prove their identity. You may not
pick up anyone else’s badge but your own, even if you have their ID.
Anime Detour encourages everyone to bring proof of payment in the
event that you are not listed in our books. If you are not listed in our
books and cannot provide proof that you’ve paid, we will not issue
you a badge.

badge, you can purchase a replacement for the cost of $45 (cash or check only). Your name must be listed in
the registration database to purchase a replacement. Sorry, but starting this year, there are no refunds if your
original badge is found. No badge replacements will be issued outside of normal registration hours.
TRANSFERS: You may not give your badge to anyone else or otherwise allow anyone else to use your badge.
If you wish to transfer your membership to someone else, you will need to visit the registration counter and
request a transfer. All on-site transfers carry a $5 convenience fee (cash or check only). You must fill out a
membership transfer form and pay the fee in order for your transfer to be considered. Note that transfers are
done at the sole discretion of the registration heads and are not guaranteed. Also, if your information (full
name, address, etc.) does not match what is in our database, we will not process the transfer. No transfers
will be processed outside of normal registration hours.
Anime Detour is not responsible for incorrect information due to illegible handwriting or incomplete forms
(online or mail-in). This includes, but is not limited to: incorrect badge names, and incorrect badge types
due to incorrect birth date.
Stop by on Sunday and pre-register for Anime Detour 2014 for the special price of just $40!
Operations
Welcome to Anime Detour, dear con-goers! You may be filled with questions,
concerns, or just plain curiosities - both about the convention at large, and the
operations department itself. Operations is here to fulfill many of your con-going
needs: Questions about programming or locations, first aid supplies, general
convention information, etc. We are here to oblige you in these regards! Please
feel free to stop by Room 215 on the second floor and pick our brains for what you
seek! (Please, no zombies.)
Also, don’t forget; if you lose track of something during the convention (but don’t realize it until after the
con), send an email to [email protected] for inquiries and requests for Lost and Found items.
Volunteers
Thanks to all of our volunteers for making Anime Detour happen. Without you we wouldn’t be here and it’s not too late to join in on the fun and
help out. You’ll find us in room 101 manically plotting ways to find more
consuite badgers. So if you’re curious about how Detour is run, want to
give back or find yourself with a few free hours and nothing to do we’re
not opposed to bribing you with candy and prizes to do our bidding.

Consuite
Come one, come all! Grab a snack to keep you going until you can get a real meal
without missing all the fabulous fun of the con. We’re on the lower level by the
pool entrance. We have hot rice and cold pop, peanut butter and jelly, chips,
sweets, and even some fresh fruit. If you’re nice and your timing is right we may
even have ramen.
Remember, the consuite is a snack room. Make sure you grab a real meal or two
each day. The hotel will have some great deals going on hot, fi lling food and you
won’t even have to step outside. If you do want a break, step across the parking lot
and you’ll fi nd some old favorites.
Keep in mind, lots of people will be coming through. Stay and relax as you eat if
you’d like and then move on. Someone else needs a spot to stop awhile and eat too. If you want to hang out
longer volunteer and earn cool goodies!
Speaking of volunteering – did you know that if you volunteer you can get into a special consuite? That’s
right! Vol-Con has meat and cheese sandwiches, breakfast in the morning, and a greater variety of snacks
and foods. So go see the folks at volunteers for more info and fuel up for the con. And always remember to
help keep consuite clean by picking up your trash.

he’s always glad to shake things up a bit. He’s thrilled to be able to add the roles of Uesugi
Kenshin in Sengoku Basara, Seikechi Tayama in Oh! Edo Rocket, and Abe in Big Windup
to his list of roles. When he’s not in a booth with headphones on, you can usually find him
sporting headphones of another variety behind “the decks”. From packed rooms at anime

Media and Industry
Kristofer “Phade” McCormic

www.AnimeMusicVideos.org, the site considered to be THE place to go when you want to
know anything and everything about Anime Music Videos (AMVs). With his new family,
he is stepping down as the website “go-to guy.” He will be returning to Anime Detour this
year bringing a whole new exciting batch of AMVs for your viewing pleasure.
Tadao Tomomatsu
is a talented actor, comedian, and entertainer. He has
appeared in movies (Inspector Gadget) and on TV (Banzai, Heroes). Some of his most

editing, field production work, camera work, and interviewing. In his role “Mr. ShakeHands Man” for the internationally syndicated United Kingdom/USA Gameshow, Banzai, Tadao has been
able to employ all of his varied talents.
Artists and Writers
Randal Milholland writes and draws the comic “Something*Positive” as
well as maintaining his Rhymes With Witch site. Originally from Texas, he lived in Boston for
a number of years, but recently returned to the land of his birth. He gave up acting to do comics
- this made at least one group of artists happier. Bring him a blank Munchkin card and he’ll fill
it out for you. His work can be seen at www.somethingpositive.net.
Studio Capsule
is involved in creating a line of low print run doujinshis,
portfolios, animated shorts, and other projects expanding Studio Capsule. Find out everything
that’s new with either Studio Capsule or Robert and Emily DeJesus at www.studiocapsule.com.
Robert DeJesus is a writer, story creator, illustrator, story board artist, and character designer.
An Indiana born, self-taught artist, who got his first art career break when he sent an eight page short story to
comic publisher, Antarctic Press in February of 1990. He has drawn manga inspired art for well over 19 years
and has been published nearly all over the world. He has worked for many companies like Playstation Magazine,
Marvel, Hasbro, and Harper Collins Publishing, just to name a few. He is currently working on the video game
“Crisis Heart Brawlers.”
Emily DeJesus is a writer, editor, story creator and manager. Emily has always enjoyed manga and anime, but
never thought it could be her job. Emily has worked with Robert for over 12 years now. She helps write the web
comic “How to Loathe Drawing in the Manga Style” and has just finished writing her first children’s book. She
enjoys the business side of working for Studio Capsule very much and is grateful that she has an opportunity to
work in the manga/comics business.
Studio O.N.Y.
started out in 2004 as a married couple doing artist alley tables at
conventions in the midwest. Richard and Shannon Townsend had worked as freelancers with
several companies, most notably with A2 press on the Tabletop RPG Book “Teenagers from
Outer Space: The Landing”. During their time as a small art studio, one young fan had asked
them to turn their original characters into a weekly web comic. It was from this pleading that their weekly web
comic “Otaku -no- Yen” (geeks without money) was born. In early 2010, the studio brought on long time friend
and artist Kimberly Pridemore as a collaborative member. Now that the studio has upgraded, the trio have begun
work on a bold new comic project among other comics in the works from all members.

A Decade of Construction Essay Contest Winner
For our tenth year, Anime Detour staff wanted to hear from you, our attendees, about why you always take
the Detour. We invited members to share their most memorable stories from past years and then a panel of
Anime Detour staffers selected the essay we thought best captured the spirit of Anime Detour. Our winning
essay from Briana Lawrence of Sewn Together Reflections is below. Thanks to all our submitters.
I’ve been going to Anime Detour since its first year. Detour was the first convention where I cosplayed, back
in its first year before Sheratons turned into DoubleTrees, even before the mighty Thunderbird. I was scared
out of my mind because you always hear horrible stories about how plus-sized cosplayers or cosplayers of
color are treated, and I fit both of those categories. But even with the negativity you hear about you learn
that there’s people who are positive, encouraging, and make you realize that it’s about having fun. It’s about
being that character, hell, it’s about being yourself. If you want to dress up like Sailor Moon for a day, then
dress up as Sailor Moon for a day. For all of the bad comments there are always good, for all the “GTFOs”
there’s a “OMG you’re so pretty!” Thanks to that first year at Detour, I’ve cosplayed more and have slowly
become more confident about it.
Anime Detour is also the first convention where my partner and I had a table in Artist Alley. We had friends
who did it, but we never thought we could do it ourselves. Since then, we always have tables with our crafts,
to the point that it’s really becoming a small business for us. That first table woke up the creative side in us
and convinced us to keep doing our art, to keep trying to get it out there, and we realized that that “hobby”
can really be turned into something more.
Anime Detour was also the first convention where I saw an “It Gets Better” panel. The turn-out for that panel
was (and still is) tremendous. To see a panel of people -- not just staff, but guests -- who take time out to share
their stories and show that, yes, things do get better, was one of the most incredible moments I’ve had at a
convention. There’s this powerful feeling you get when people you look up to and respect come out and say,
“I was bullied. I was harassed. I hated myself. Now, I voice anime characters and love my life.” My partner
and I even went and told our story and the support we received was amazing. That panel made me realize
that conventions and the geek community in general is more than just a place to hang out and have fun. It’s a
support network, it’s a family who is o.k. with you being that plus-sized black girl who draws, paints, writes,
is in a relationship with another woman, and dresses like a Disney princess for three days.
For three days, Anime Detour lets you be you. Not only that, but it encourages you to be you. The staff, the
guests, the people you meet, they’re all there for you, and that is why it’s so important to me.
