Tokushima prefecture‘s entertainment extravaganza, Machi☆Asobi Vol. 11 has already begun and boy were things festive. From itashas and cosplay to sneak peeks of some of this season’s latest anime, the event has got it covered.
The event which aims to promote Tokushima prefecture started yesterday, October 12 and will end tomorrow, October 14, 2013 and so far, a lot has already happened.
In a special ceremony held yesterday, voice actresses Asami Imai (Steins; Gate’s Kurisu Makise), Eri Kitamura (Madoka Magica‘s Sayaka Miki), Kana Akutsu (Amnesia‘s Mine) and Hiromi Igarasi (Papa no Iukoto wo Kikinasai‘s Hina Takenashi) were all appointed as honorary Tokushima tourism ambassadors by the Tokushima Tourism Association.
Another voice actress, Naomi Wakabayashi (Little Busters‘ Kudryavka Noumi) meanwhile handed out started decks for the Chaos trading card game. This was part of the trading card game’s collaboration campaign with the popular Puchimas!: Petit [email protected] anime which also stars Wakabayashi as the voice of Ritsuko Akizuki.
Several anime stalls lined the Shinmachi boardwalk along the banks of the Shinmachi river.
ufotable cinema meanwhile offered a sneak peek into the third episode of one of the hottest anime this season, Kill la Kill as well as a “raw audio commentary” of the Kara no Kyoukai movie.
