The event will feature scriptwriter Tow Ubukata, who will answer questions posed to him about the show on the anime's official Twitter account using the hash tag #soukyusakusen. Also, Starchild musical group Angela will perform at the event. Fans can also request three songs for Angela to sing at the event on the staff's official Twitter account using the hash tag #angela_fafner. Both Twitter accounts will be accepting questions and requests until July 5.
