The day provided plenty of entertainment and information for all
The wealth of information on Tokyo was impressive. Even the
Animetion team, who have all visited Tokyo before, found new
information about Japan's capital city. In one section of the
hall there were boards with information on all the different
activities that can be completed in each of the different districts
that make up Tokyo. Also to ensure that this information was
available after the event, everyone was given a pack filled with
leaflets containing the information that you could find on the day.
Throughout, the day a number of anime screenings were shown.
These titles included some which had not been released in the UK.
Below shows a list of some of the anime screenings that were shown:
Honeinu-kun In Makkura-land
Megaman Star Force
This part of the event proved to be particularly popular with most
of the screenings packed to full capacity.
