Japanese fantasy idol group Starmarie showed why they remain one of the best artists in Japan and all over the world as they gave a rousing performance yesterday evening at the Aldaba Recital Hall at UP Diliman.  Performing live on stage not long after arriving at the airport, Starmarie truly is a class act that had left their fans awestruck amidst that rainy evening.

Bibo Global Opportunity, Inc., an online language school producing effective speakers and writers of the English language using fun, innovative and interactive ways of language learning, organized the event to promote Japanese culture here and foster better ties among our people.  The folks at Bibo really were generous as they made this a free event and even had lots of freebies and giveaways to the fans who came to watch and support Starmarie.  Helping out with organizing the event was UP Anime and Manga Enthusiasts, throwing their full support into the affair.

The program started about 6 pm, although fans have come way earlier in the afternoon, eager to be the first to be in line to enter UP’s Aldaba Recital Hall.  The event was free, and attendees just needed to register at the Bibo desk, where they got to receive shirts, fans, and other great giveaways.  Ms. Shine hosted the event, opening up by welcoming the fans who came as she introduced Bibo to the audience, letting them know of the many amazing opportunities that they can avail of by being part of their organization.  She also showed some clips and demos of how they conduct their tutorials as well as the many fun and interesting things of working in an international environment.

Not long after, the special guests made their appearance to the warm and loud welcome of the audience.  Starmarie got to perform again in front of an ecstatic Filipino audience, and they responded in kind with dazzling choreography and showmanship that demonstrated why  they have a huge and loyal following in their native Japan and lots of fans all over the world even as they have had a roster change, now having five amazing members:  Nozomi Kishita, Shino Takamori, Matsuzaki Hiroka, Nakane Motoko, and Watanabe Kaede.  All were glowing and graceful in their white dance ensembles as they performed almost straight out of the airport as they did not want to disappoint their Filipino fans.

After their exciting set of dance numbers, they introduced themselves, much to the joy of the crowd, each fan clearly having a particular favorite.  The group members played a game with the audience where the winners got to take home autographed posters, and you can be pretty sure that these posters were hard-fought to the bitter end.

Starmarie then got to mix it up with the crowd, taking photos with them, having selfies, shaking hands, and sharing a word or two with everyone.  Language was not a barrier as admiration was an emotion easily felt, more so here with their many new and old fans and friends.

Then came time for the group to go, but not before thanking the audience profusely and inviting everyone to see them again that weekend at Movie Stars Cafe on Friday, September 19 at 8:00 pm, then both days of Best of Anime 2014 at the SMX Convention Center, September 20 and 21.  The audience left the hall with smiles on their faces as they got the rare chance to meet their idols in person.
