There wasn't much available from the live-action JoJo's Bizarre Adventure film Takashi Miike is releasing this summer in Japan – just this Jotaro statue (he was here last year) and a few promotional images.

That's Josuke Higashikata from Diamond is Unbreakable.

And that Mt. Fuji character really looks like Pikachu. I wonder if there's a relation of some sort.

BanG Dream! is one of those franchises where it's unclear if it's an enormous megahit or just something with an extremely aggressive marketing campaign, but this franchise is represented in just about every convenience store we entered during our time here –

Going by the amount of doujin and fan art out there, it bombed, no buts about it...

For all the high-tier marketing BanG Dream is getting, they seem to have a hard time trying to garner interest...Perhaps the idol group was just too large for its own benefit?

I came for Kero-chan Great photos but I hoped for more CardCaptor Sakura. The pics on the display look more like they're about the old series than the upcoming.

What's the booth with the Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun banner above it? Is that just promoting the manga, or did we finally get an S2 announcement and I just missed it?

For me personally "BanG Dream" really just lacks a certain charm that most other Idol focused series have, it just feels like there's something missing in the series and it really fails to pull any interest from me, which I found strange since I expected to at least moderately enjoy watching it. So I'm honestly not surprised to see other people not really finding themselves interested in it.

The Ordinal Scale statues look great. Seemed like a good time.

It'd be the booth for Gangan comics, who publish Nozaki and Black Butler.


I feel like BanGDream isn't as big as they hoped it would be. I think it's a case of them pushing it hard, rather than it being super successful.

Finally showed the Code Geass section. Looks awesome along with the Yu-Gi-Oh! The GOAT Side of Dimensions section. I see Black Magician Girl looking perfect. Kuriboh master race!

The Yu-Gi-Oh! booth had a handful of these adorable little critters on display, along with an ad for the bluray release of the film, The Dark Side of Dimensions


I finally got ANN to report on the home release. Very Happy

They didn't show the mega long TV that was playing the history of Code Geass and the promotion for the new TV series. Featured alot CC in it.
