Love is in the Air – a Valentine’s Day hentai giveaway

Love is in the air

We’ve been hinting at this for a while, but here’s something for the het/hentai fans just in time for Valentine’s Day! Thanks to Siren Visual, we have 4 Hentai Collection DVDs to give away:

  • Anyone You Can Do… I Can Do Better
  • Bondage Mansion
  • Slaves to Passion
  • RXXX Prescription for Pain

To enter the draw, simply mention the official convention account on Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr or use the #room801 (Facebook/Twitter) or #room 801 (Tumblr) hashtags in a post any time between the 1st and 14th of February 2014 (across all Australian timezones).

To be eligible you must be over 18 and living in Australia; you’ll need to provide proof of your age, name and address to us before we can send out your prize. Posts including photographic porn or illegal material will be automatically disqualified. The winner will be randomly selected from all eligible entries and announced on the 17th of February 2014 on the Room 801 website.

If hentai isn’t your thing, never fear – we have a few more giveaways planned before and during the convention, so stick around!

One month to go!

Firstly, we’ll be running an official screening of The Fragile Heart of Moe during the convention. This NHK-commissioned, Indian-produced documentary directed by Bharath Murthy focuses on female doujinshi artists, Comiket and fujoshi.

Jake and Zac from the offbeat and hilarious Gaming Cult Podcast will also be joining us on the weekend; they’ll be playing through the classic pigeon dating sim Hatoful Boyfriend for your entertainment. The GCP boys will also be in the trader area with AarinFantasy, Japanese Gay Art, Fox Lee, Sparkling Generation Valkyrie Yuuki, Bea Bravo and Y Labs. For more info about any of our traders and artists, visit the Traders page.

Premium ticket sales close at the end of the Australia Day long weekend (midnight on the 27th of January), so if you’re planning to get a premium ticket then make sure you get in before the deadline. We’ll also be sending reminders to our mailing list, so sign up if you need a reminder and stay up to date with what’s happening at the convention.

We’re still taking suggestions for our Swap Meet video playlist, and here’s a really obvious poll for January!
