July contest invited users to draw monsters for a trip to XFLAG PARK and XFLAG Store in Tokyo
This past July, Crunchyroll invited members to draw their own monsters or draw the monsters from Monster Strike in order to win a trip to Japan to visit the Monster Strike Symphony and Monster Sonic! Live shows at XFLAG PARK in Tokyo, as well as visiting the XFLAG Store which features a Monster Strike themed cafe inside.
Below are some pictures of the store and the respective live shows, which featured a live orchestra performing arrangements of selected sonngs featured in the series, as well as the Monster Sonic Live! show, which featured the in-series group Wicked Pistols debuting a new song, through the use of real-time 3D projection.
