While the most featured anime title at Linkool 2013 was Puella Magi Madoka Magica, the most popular and crowded event was obviously the Dokidoki!PreCure character show which was performed twice on the main stage in the afternoon of the third day, September 23. The seats were filled to capacity and the stage was surrounded by a standing audience. The majority of them was 3 to 6 years old kids and their parents. The children were cheering the PreCure girls passionately shouting "Gambare!" every time their favorite heroines were in a pinch.
Ira, the youngest-looking Jikochu General, was featured as an enemy in the first show which I introduced in a Tokyo International Anime Fair 2013 report back in March. In this second show, Bel, the oldest-looking general, fights against the Dokidoki! team which is now joined by the new PreCure girl, Cure Ace.
