Motaku was founded in 2009 by Matt and Jared, our current con chairs. They met in the yaoi aisle of a local manga store way back in 2005, and have been together since.
Jared proposed to Matt in 2010, but with running the con(and now Ahn!Con as well) and everything else it has been impossible to plan an actual wedding.
After more than 4 years of being engaged, they decided it was necessary for Motaku to take a year off to give them a chance to plan and enjoy an actual wedding.
We hope you will join us in wishing them congratulations and will be back when Motaku returns in 2016!
