Anime studio ufotable's eighth Tokushima based Machi ★ Asobi anime event is being held May 3-5 to coincide with the collection of public holidays known as Golden Week. To kick things off, vocalist trio Kalafina (the themes for Ufotable's Fate/zero and Kara no Kyōkai) were named Japan Railways Tokushima Station Masters for the Day. Cardfight! Vanguard was present to assist.
The trio appeared on a station red carpet to cut a ceremonial ribbon before handing out commemorative tickets.
Elsewhere in Tokushima, ufotable brought the bloodmobile for their Fate/Zero Saber blood drive. The exact count of donors haven't been verified, but the incentive definitely seemed to draw a crowd.
