Hi, I run an anime society at my university and next week we're having a festival theme and we need a few suggestions for what to show though we are having trouble coming up with ideas. Might anyone be able to come up with a few suggestions? They can be based on any festival (e.g. a music one or a traditional one) other than something like Christmas. So far there's Kobato episode 9 and Tokyo Ravens episode 1.

Almost every school-based anime I've seen has a festival episode or arc.

Here's some examples:

Beelzebub
SKET Dance
The Knight in the Area
School Rumble
Sakigake Otokojuku
Nisekoi
Ichigo 100%
To Love Ru
Baka and Test
Daily Lives of High School Boys
Silver Spoon
D-Frag

Nagi no Asukara
The whole anime is about holding a festival to please a sea god

Yeah, Nagi no Asukara is the only one I can think of where the festival is a major plot-point, but as Kurodenki mentioned, nearly every school anime has a festival arc- Clannad for example.

Log Horizon has a lot of festivals and food. Episodes 22-25 of season 1 are about the Scale Festival and episode 1 of season 2 starts off with a sports festival and talk of more festivals to come.

Hi. It looks you've received good suggestions.

I'm closing this now because individual threads requesting help/advice aren't allowed in the discussion forums. In the future to get recommendations about anime for your personal consumption or for your anime society, pleas ask in the Recommend Me an Anime thread that is "stickied" near the top of the Anime forum
