A Rave party called "Re:animation" again had big success drawing a lot of Otaku in Shinjyuku, Tokyo.

We covered the last event, but we just couldn't miss this exciting event once more.


After the earthquake, many event organizers had tough time drawing people to Otaku events, and many of them even went bankrupt.
However, because the last "Re:animation" was huge success, and people at the event acted so peacefully and use the area so cleanly, the city of Shinkyuku fully supported the event this time.

As some of you might already know, this event was originally created by fans of Eureka Seven.
The event has grown to 1,400 participants event which is 1.5 times bigger than the last one.
Under the current situation of people in Japan, the growth is very surprising, and it gives very positive message for the industry.
Instead of admission, the event asks participants for donation, but thanks to all these supportive Otaku, the organizer was able to raise sufficient fund from their donation.
Under the hot and humid weather, Governor of Shinjyuku came and interacted with crowds., making the event so special.
it was so touching by watching all the generations having fun together through Anime culture!

Luckily, the event organizer of "Re:animation" found our last report on our website, and offered us interviews and pictures this time, so we have better pictures and video clips from the event that you can enjoy.

These days, late night Anime TV programs have tendency to become big hits in Japan. Something like, Eureka Seven, Hachimitsu to Clover (Honey and Clover) which became even more popular after releasing an actual film version, and Higashi no Eden (Eden of the east) which became a huge hit movie are good examples of these Anime from late night spots.

And now, in the last year, GAINAX which produced Neon Genesis Evangelion made a big hit Anime called, "Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt" from late night spot. They took a lot of essence from American Comic and Hollywood movie, and it created new direction and sensation. We've put photos from Comic Market in last December, and you can identify some cosplayers from "Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt" below.

Recently, GAINAX and Galaxxxy who handles merchandise of "Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt" collaborated an event in Shibuya, Tokyo. The event had tons of characters, illustrations and music by TCY Recordings. The space was filled with people, and it proved that "Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt" is still a huge hit.
They gave us special permission to take pictures of the event and an exhibition at Galaxxxy Shop. Enjoy!
