A Visit to Tokyo Game Show & animate Yokohama!

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

The only games I’ve ever managed to play from start to finish are “Lupin the 3rd: The Castle of Cagliostro: Saikai” and “Kingdom Hearts”! I actually play a lot but I just never manage to get very far into them! (´・ω・`)

But this weekend is the… Tokyo Game Show 2013!!

=========================================
Tokyo Game Show 2013
Date: 21st September (Sat) – 22nd September (Sun) (Public Days)
Location: Makuhari Messe
Official Site: http://tgs.cesa.or.jp/index.html
=========================================

I was able to visit the event early yesterday! (`・ω・´)


I hadto wonder why the one screen was covered with a ‘backpack exhibition’ sign…


Let’s head into the event hall!


Things are already getting rather exciting!


The whole event hall felt like something from the future! ☆

I’ve been to the Makuhari Messe for all sorts of events in the past, but the lighting and atmosphere of the Tokyo Game Show has a completely different feeling to it! It feels more like a theme park!

Plus there were slimes and chocobos floating around in the air…

There was even someone wearing this cute Metal Dragon hat!


There were also lots of High Score Girl Akira-chans!! All so cute!!(*´Д`)
I was too embarrassed to get close enough for photos though… (´・ω・`)

Good Smile Company had a figure on display at the GOD EATER2 booth!


GOD EATER2 releases in November this year, and the new main character ‘Ciel Alanson’ has already come this far as a figure!!


When I heard she was going to be on display at TGS, I quickly grabbed some photos of her in the office beforehand! (ΦωΦ)…!


Her twisted pose and beautiful body-line… and that glaring expression!
They’re all so beautiful!!


Plus the outfit is super cute! ♥ The combination of the cute girl side and the serious combat look gives the figure a great presence!

Plus I can also make another announcement on today’s blog!

Nendoroid Alisa is in production!!

Alice is from the previous God Eater game, and she has a brand new costume in the new game! Her light skin and white hair look great – as expected of a Russian beauty! I can’t wait to see the Nendoroid sculpt!! ((o(´∀`)o))
Will she come with a God Arc!?

If you’re looking for the GOD EATER 2 booth then just keep an eye out for this piece of art!

There were all sorts of other game announcements too!! ε=(。・д・。)

One of the games at SEGA’s booth was Hatsune Miku Project mirai 2 which is going on sale on the 28th November!


At the booth they were handing out this ‘Weekly Famiku’ magazine filled with all sorts of info from the game, including information on the songs in the game and other new features! ♪


The cover also mentions that the magazine came to the GSC offices!
They even interviewed Hamako and myself!!

This was the first interview I’ve ever been a part of, so I was super nervous throughout… I don’t even really remember what I said on the day! (`・ω・´;)

Let’s see if we can find the interview page…!

Aaahh!! It’s really here!!

It came out as a really nice looking and well written article!

A big thank you to everyone involved!! (´;ω;`).

I have somewhat mixed feelings of happiness and embarrassment! The magazine also features some gravure photos of Mikudayo, so be sure to take a look if you’re at the event!!


While we’re talking about Mikudayo… Mikudayo is currently touring Japan!


Today she and Murakami are at the Sofmap Niigata store!

Yesterday I decided to go help out at a very store that means a huge amount to me as I’ve been there so often… animate Yokohama!

I came here two days ago during the typhoon as well! Ever since I was in middle school I often come by here… I love this store! ^^

There was even someone advertising the Mikudayo sales on the third floor! Thank you!!

Climbing up the stairs…


Heading into the event space!!


As I arrived I found Murakami having a great time with a fellow BRS fan!!


I’m told many people have come by to pick up Mikudayo! Yay!


A big thanks to everyone who came by the store!

I even met someone I had previously met at one of the Girl’s Nendoroid Collector’s Meetings! What a lovely reunion! ♥

To think that one of the stops on Mikudayo’s pilgrimages was this wonderful store in my hometown makes me so happy inside! I really want to thank everyone who stopped by! Thank you!!
