March 25th, 2009 -- Upper Darby, PA -- What, you think we haven't been busy the last few months, eh? Shame, shame, shame, quite the contrary. With only 4 weeks to go before "the world's most extreme Asian culture fusion festival", there is plenty to unveil, discuss, & enjoy. That also means it's about that time to unleash to the world 1 of TAKII 7's best kept secrets for the season....

For those of you who haven't been keeping up with the latest developments on the TAKII website, PDNMZ Feedback Fourm, & Asian Multimedia Entertainment Network, we are proudly excited to announce the centerpieces of this season's momentous celebration: TAKII's 7 Deadly SINs"ASIAN"s!

To pay tribute to these dynamic heroes of Asian-themed entertainment, every festivity (divided into "#1 Contender's Pass Exclusives" & "Free-For-All Festivities") at TAKII 7 is based on a Deadly SINs"ASIAN", if not a combination thereof. The following festivities are only a small portion of our seasonal premiers, giving TAKII attendees even more chances to win spiffy sway & that all-but-illusive TAKII-branded glory:
