World Grand Prix 2010

As promised earlier, here is the post on the World Grand Prix which took place on 12/12/2010 in UDX Akiba Square!

I was pretty much running all over the place looking after the overseas players and the guests who came along with them. Here are some of the pictures I managed to snap along the way. My apologies for the quality as I only had an iPhone on me at the time XD

Cold morning in Akiba, about 7~9 degrees celcius if I remember correctly Xp

Despite the cold weather, the players are all gathering outside, waiting to be let loose... XD

Friendly smiles before the tournament. From experience, they will soon turn into serious expressions once the matches begin. Featured here are the players from overseas. From left to right: Mr. Foo Weng Fai(Malaysia), Mr. Koh Kai Che(Singapore), Mr. Yueng King Lam Felix(Hong Kong), and Mr. She Wei Hao(Taiwan)

The Mash and Ms. Terakawa were the emcees for the event. Mr. Kidani, our CEO made his appearance and brought with him the Milky Holmes seiyuus!

Great crowd and they were organized into their respective playing zones in a matter of moments

There was no shortage of spectators either as all of them were engrossed in the games

At the end of the day, there was still the Milky Holmes Cup! Players were divided into teams and played as many players as they could within the hour to determine the winning team XD


Whew, it was a pretty hectic day, with Mr. Danny Choo stopping by for a bit of filming... Culture Japan maybe? Oh well, keep a lookout, there could be a mention of the WGP in one of the upcoming episodes ^_^b

That's an amazing turn out for Bushiroad TCG players! Can't wait to see the number rise when Vanguard comes out! ^_^ Hoping for some Canada cup qualifications.... hahahaha

Hikari-
Well, if the game picks up and we have a distributor in Germany, it could be possible to have guests from Germany in the future!
Yes, she was there to flag off the event XD The players were also very surprised to see her there in the morning XD

Robostrike-
Well, there was a Vanguard tutorial session there as well that day. we had about 70~80 players sign up for the experience. Not bad for a start Xp

As for Weiβ in Canada, just keep us updated of any upcoming anime/game events and we will try to set up a booth there to get the ball rolling. Alternatively, if there are any event organizers who would like to request for our presence at any event, they are most welcome to send us the details and we will try to attend, schedule permitting of course. ^_^

Yes, but considerably lesser players in free-play for winter, when compared to summer events T_T

I wonder if there were any Prinny decks this year, or even Sisters decks... XD
