Last year, we received hundreds of auditions and selected fan Tasayu Tasnaphun to cover the Tokyo Anime Fair and Tokyo lifestyle with our camera crew in tow. We were delighted by the positive feedback viewers gave us during his coverage on his blog and his Video on Demand programming segments. It encouraged us to continue with this unique and fun way of interaction among the Otaku. We have some very unique assignments prepared for this year's Anime Selects Tokyo Reporter."
