Other than the anime song concerts performed by famous singers on Large Stage, the most popular and packed stage event at Tokyo International Anime Fair 2013 was undoubtedly Toei Animation's Dokidoki! PreCure character show at Kid's Stage which was held twice on March 24th. Both shows were full with spectators, mainly 3 to 6 year old girls (many of them wearing the PreCure costumes for kids) and their parents. The four Dokidoki girls, Cure Heart, Cure Diamond, Cure Rosetta, and Cure Sword performed a short play and the ED song dance in the half-hour show for the children who were so happy to see them in reality.
The newest PreCure film PreCure All Stars New Stage 2: Kokoro no Tomodachi, also the debut film for the Dokidoki team, was released in Japan on March 16th and took third place on the Japanese movie box office earning 196,577,300 yen (about US$2,077,325) during its first weekend,
which was 100.6% of the last year's All Stars film PreCure All Stars New Stage: Mirai no Tomodachi.
