But that does mean GSC is hard at work preparing for all the events!

Summer might be coming to an end, but the festivities are only just beginning! This weekend marks the start of two events – with another coming up in September!

August 27th/28th (Sat/Sun)

Animelo Summer Live 2011
@Saitama Super Arena
A Good Smile Company tent booth will be setup outside the Saitama Super Arena hall. In the booth you will be able to grab both editions of Black Rock Shooter The Game, and various BRS and Madoka Magica goods will be on display. Indotei will also be there to provide some Indian cuisine!


The Black Rock Curry!
Deadmaster-san, you’re drooling! xD


And this is the Kyubey Curry!

Each curry comes with a pin badge as an extra, and only costs 800JPY!

This year will also have Black Rock Shooter Shaved Ice!
Just like there are two different versions of the BRS game, there will also be two different versions of the shaved ice! Last year it was so popular that we ran out of syrup! The day is scheduled to be a hot summer’s day, so do stop by and cool down with some ice!



The GSC newcomers will be doing a live broadcast!

From the left, we have Shuu-chan, Sacchan and Tonchan! It’s a bit early for the glowsticks though… :/

And this time they are in charge of the planning and script as well!

I had a look at the script a little back and it looked like a very fun performance, so do tune in for the broadcast!
