A show created in 1993 by Haim Saban, but with roots (and suits, stories, footage, etc.) from the Super Sentai franchise. The basic premise is like so: evil warlord/ witch/ Machine Empire/ empress/ squid/ demon/ mutant/ psychopath/ exiled ninja/ failed science experiment/ alien emperor sends down monster, heroes (5 or 6 usually) kill monster, monster grows, heroes jump into zords, kill monster again, repeat. Add tortured souls and their backstories for flavor.
Referred to on its website as "the convention of the otaku generation," Otakon began in 1994 as a small covention in PA. Today it calls both the Baltimore Convention Center and 1st Mariner Arena home for one hot summer weekend. It is now the largest anime convention on the east coast, and the second largest in the country. Otakon attracts visitors from around the country and guests from halfway around the world.
