International Wota @ Otakon 2009 — July 17 – 19, 2009.
pengie, as a representative for International Wota, attended the East Coast’s largest anime and Japanese culture convention as a press member. She was able to sit down for one-on-one interviews with Wakeshima Kanon and BECCA, two of the five con’s musical guests, as well as attend press-exclusive conferences for MELL and VAMPS. The convention introduced many fans to new musical acts, and helped existing fans get a chance to get more up close and personal with some of their favorite musicians.

International Wota @ Anime Expo 2009 — July 2 – 5, 2009.
International Wota attended a historic event for Morning Musume (and Hello! Project) fans around the world. Anime Expo 2009 featured Morning Musume as Guests of Honor and the girls made their American debut by participating in an Question and Answer panel, treating fans to a high energy concert and doing 3 autograph sessions. Also at the convention were Morning Musume’s producer Tsunku, and former Morning Musume leader Yoshizawa Hitomi (referred to as HANGRY at the convention).

It was a highly anticipated event that was very well received by fans, both old, new and newly created.
