Crazy Summer Event for All Idol Otaku : “Tokyo Otaku Festival 2016 ~Daisenkou Natsu Matsuri~” Report

“Tokyo Otaku Festival 2016 ~Daisenkou Natsu Matsuri~” (aka TOF) was held at club asia in Shibuya, on August 30th. The feature of this event was that both the performers and audience were otaku. At first glance, this event may appear to be a DJ event leaning on the Japanese sub-culture but, it actually was an event of otaku, by otaku, and for otaku.

Upon entering Club asia, you would see the mass of cyalumes called “Daisenkou” whose quantity of light is the most among the other cyalumes. It was provided for free and otaku cheered the performers using the immeasurable cyalumes. That scene was epic.

The event kicked off with the DJ debut of Yua Ashihara from Tokyo Cheer2 Party. Anna Hirai from Tokyo Cheer2 Party and Misuzu Momoi from Last Question appeared on the stage and cheered along with her. Momoi was especially enthusiastic in wearing the T-shirt of the idol she usually cheers.

One of the highlights of this event was the special area for idols so that they can concentrate on cheering idols freely. There are no borders in the hearts of otaku.

Omiyage, the presenter of this event, appeared on the stage. They are not an idol group but idol otaku group who devotes themselves to idols.

The group and audience warmed up with the exercise that the members created “Otaku Dai-i Taisou”. This was to help the otaku in the audience loosen up and prevent any injury or accidents from happening during the event.

Omiyage was followed up by DJ POCHI and the audience welcomed her with the cyalumes arranged in the shape of her name “POCHI”. Shojo Mannequin Mochiko and KAMO ga Negi wo Shottekuru!! appeared and the audience went more and more crazy.

The next DJ was Kana Tsuduki with Chikyujin, Hachimitsu★Koutei, and Rin Kawashima as stage acts. The audience from now on used as much cyalumes as they could, which reminded me of the feeling of Climber’s High.

Omiyage again appeared on the stage to cool down the audience. They introduced a new penlight called “LUMIACE 2 OMEGA”.

There are several types of penlights but the one released by LUMICA can switch to 24 colors and it remembers the order of the colors. You can use only the specific color or change the colors in the order according to the idols.

In addition, a red light tells you when the penlight needs to be recharged. You can enjoy Otaku life with this masterpiece.

This might be the best penlights ever for otaku. LUMICA 2 OMEGA can be bought at electrical shops and EC Shops, so get it and cheer for your oshi!

After the introduction of the penlight, there was the last “fireworks” display of the summer as shown in the photo below.

DJ Sioringo from Bandjanaimon! appeared on the stage as the last performer of the evening. During her solo song, all the performers retuned to the stage once more.

As you see, this summer festival came to the end. There were otaku both on the stage and in the audience. The energy might be summed up rarely, so please prepare for the next time, if it were held though!

A drinkable “Tasumian tofu” was provided to the audience, after the event name “TOF”. It was useful to cool down the overheated body. Well-rounded, new texture tofu brink!

The venerable Japanese word "kawaii" is not the adjective "cute"; it is just a word used to communicate the state of mind of feeling love for something.
