Love Live!, Yowamushi Pedal, Madoka Magica, Naruto, and more!
During my stay in Tokyo for the Chara Hobby 2015 event, I, as always, went to the Akihabara town to check the latest anime/game street ads. An middle-size event titled "Akiba Daisuki! Festival 2015" was coincidentally held at the Bellesalle Akihabara building in the weekend. The bi-yearly event, counting its eighth this summer, has introduced many types of Akiba culture including cosplay, maid cafe and various original goods. Check the photo reports of the street ads and the event below.
