After a more than an hour Narita Express train ride to Shibuya, I transfered to the Hanzomon Line to Aoyama-itchome (BTW, I just arrived Japan that afternoon). During the walk towards the party, I decided to take a few pictures of places to help me trace back the way to the Station. Guess who photo bombed? Now, navigating to the event wont be a problem.

The party room was a little on the small size but not packed. People can still move around, talk and have some drinks, perform and dance. I think there were 40 to 50 people inside. The lights and sound system was good. A disco ball was hanging from the middle of the ceiling. We had special Macross themed drinks served.

Toilet signs were also Macross themed. So was the dressing room for cosplayers. Ofcourse, the DJ was there at his booth dishing nothing but the finest Macross music.

Some of the fans would come up to you and talk about, well, Macross. Alot of them, when asked which among the series was their favorite, answered Macross Frontier. Not surprisingly, with the amount of Frontier cosplayers around. Macross 7 came in 2nd favorite. Some of the fans brought merchandise for show or props. One of them brought a clear book full of his character artworks and original mecha design.

First phase of the program: Lip Syncing and Dancing. Cosplayers dominated this phase. I was so amazed at how they memorized all the dance moves for every song.

More amazing was the audience's full participation, also with memorized moves and voiceovers. Oh and what would fandom be without their standard glow sticks.

The Macross Rockstars have arrived just in time for the next phase. Karaoke. BTW, they just came fresh from the 7pm 1st LIVE in Zepp "Walkure Attack!" concert. Had I known the 2nd show was at 7pm, I would have took the chance and gone there. Anyway, the Macross SpeakerPODcast crew will talk about it in their future podcast. Glad to meet Adrian, Gwyn, Mike and Chris for the first time. Now that's Adrian on vocals and Mike on guitars, Remember 16:

After a short break, the party resumes with a special performance by Walkure cosplayers. Then followed by an even more special performance by the amazing Ai kun.
