I’m afraid the picture resolution isn’t high enough to view fullscreen with PicLens, but we will be replacing these with higher-quality stills soon. Enjoy!

Wonder Festival 2009

by admin on Jul.27, 2009, under events

This was Tokyo VR Studio’s first year at Wonder Festival 2009. We had a great time sitting in the Gainax Otaku room, oogling over the many custom ‘garage kit’ figures, listening to the live musical performances and running away from Gloomy Bear. (The camera equipment slowed us down, and we just bear-ly made it away with our lives. Ha, ha, ha… -_-;) Below are some panoramas from Wonder Festival 2009 dedicated to those who couldn’t come to Japan, couldn’t make it out to Makuhari Messe, or anyone who passed out from heat exhaustion or gave up on the 2-hour wait to get into the event. Enjoy ^^

P.S. Still-picture post to follow!
