NicoNico Douga held an event at Makuhari Messe called the "NicoNico Chokaigi" and as part of the event there was a mini Ita G Festa where about 60 Itasha where picked from hundreds of applicants. Was an honor that they picked my Itasha to be displayed ^o^

Folks who have ben reading for a while will know that I used to have a green Nissan March Itasha and may be surprised to see that its now been replaced by a red Nissan Dualis ^^;

Over 90,000 people attended over the 2 days and comrades like Good Smile Company, Bushiroad, Kadokawa, Nitroplus, Sega Sammy, Ascii Media Works attended too - all who just happen to be my clients ^o^
More about the event in a separate post.

Zooming back into the morning. Woke up at 4AM so that we could get to Makuhari Messe before 6AM - no Itasha were allowed to get in if they were late ^^;
First thing to do is polish down the car. I hear newspaper is good for cleaning windows and Oolong cha is also good for grime?

A load of Mirai Suenaga merchandise to display this time - last time I didn't have any ^^;

All set up! the iPad still off to save a bit O battery.

15747713282_38c1849de6_o

The top guy from Ascii - Toshihiro Fukuoka - this is the man that made the Hatsune Miku concert Mikunopolis happen.

To folks who keep asking what my wife thinks about my job - I'm sorry to disappoint but she loves this line of work too! Thats what I love about Japanese culture - its OK to like and work in the anime field even if you are older than 12 years old.

15560745908_0278ccdb3c_o

The side illustration was especially done for the itasha by DMYO-sensei.

15747715262_ff5f337963_o

10:03AM - doors open!

15561012427_7611e6156e_o

Its UTACO - the voice actress for Mirai Suenaga - you would have heard her doing the narration for Culture Japan Season 2.

15560299929_783a518d93_o

Mirai likes Mirai's oppai.

15126227294_7251ca24dc_o

Going over UTACO's first live performance of her singing Sukirai - the opening theme song for Culture Japan which you can hear below.

Cuuuuute! Am I allowed to say that about my own character? ^^; This illustration available as wallpaper for you.

The Itasha however is not finished and the next step is to wrap the bumper which will be the rest of Mirai's lower body.

15560308369_895f012306_o

The Mirai Suenaga logo has been changed for the Japanese audience - its more important to have the Japanese more prominent than the English over here.

15561022067_f1e9e78fc3_o

Cheerleader Mirai! Kawaii ><

15561024177_de270cd860_o

And we have now entered day 2 of the event - slightly different layout this time.

15746192535_7f1c21714d_o

I learned from this event that I need some sort of base for the girls to sit on - will make one from polystyrene.

15561367320_e30b2b8fd8_o

Today's Mirai cosplayer is by comrade Ai-chan. First met her while doing some work for the Ministry of Education, Science and Culture.

These flags are called Nobori [のぼり] and were used in the past to distinguish various clans - now they are used for advertising purposes and you can see them outside many shops in Japan. Have you seen these in your neck of the woods? I'm going to make some for up n coming events.

15560777218_122152c6e0_o

My man John who works at Google - one must be nice to him and give him Moekana or he may decide he no like you and erase your Google account ^^;

15561042457_1079a18d55_o

You have seen him around quite a bit now - Digitaro - the boss of Nitroplus.

15126257324_4842b36050_o

This dakimakura not in production yet - I need to make some sort of plastic cylindrical container for it first.

15746206535_be86a49b4e_o

Mirai Suenaga's Summer Uniform is now available for sale.
