Last Sunday, Wonder Festival 2023 was held at Makuhari Messe in Chiba.
We would like to bring you to the event with us.
First of all, let us explain what Wonder Festival is all about.
This event aims to allow professionals and amateurs alike to showcase their skills by exhibiting and selling the kits they have created.
The event's main attraction is the lineup of kits of existing characters (so-called "copyrighted items") that are only allowed to be sold on this day, one-of-a-kind sculptures, and new and limited-edition products from professional dealers. (Some kits presented by amateurs are sold in very small quantities, and if you miss this day, you will only be able to get them for a while.)
First, they announce the event in a massive sign at the entrance.
Oh, and the size of this place! The event venue is divided into two main booths: Corporate booths and General booths.
As for the Corporate booths, an oversized figure of "Chainsaw Man," the centerpiece of the event since last year, will be there to welcome you!
The Corporate booths are also a great opportunity to explore current and future trends among figure makers, with a wide variety of popular Japanese anime and game characters on display.
Some of the figures were exhibited for the first time at the event, and now that they are being painted and prepared for sale, We can't hardly wait for them to go on sale.
There were other fusions of AR and figures utilizing modern technology. This is a terrific idea to add value to figures in the future.
The following is a list of the most popular items allowed to be photographed at the event.
The next one will be held on Sunday, July 30, 2023, so if you happen to be in Japan, you should visit Makuhari Messe! It's going to be a full day of fun!
We are a Japanese company and we have worked for a long time to help foreigner tourists in Japan to experience the real Japanese culture. We know that Japanese culture, especially contemporary Pop culture such as Anime, is really appreciated by people all over the world. We created this shop to help share the love for Anime Pop Culture from Japan to the world.
We can ship Anime/Games figures and Anime/Games goods from Japan to any country. We sell ONLY original products. Our aim is to stop the sale of unauthorized products and we can confirm that no imitation/fake product will be shipped from us. The name of our site, “animota”, derives proudly from the blending of the Japanese terms “anime”, “moe” and “otaku”
