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.

Meet and Greet with Liui Aquino at Misaki CyberCon 2014



Fans were in for a treat at as celebrity cosplayer Liui Aquino made an appearance at this year’s Misaki CyberCon at the Activity Center of SM City Taytay in Rizal.  Having had much acclaim for his recent Hiccup of How to Train Your Dragon 2 cosplay, he has become even more known to the public and wanted to thank his fans at his special meet and greet session within CyberCon.








Set for early afternoon last August 31, 2014, the event had fans coming in as early as mall opening just to make sure they get the chance to meet their idol.  Everyone was ecstatic when they heard about it only the day before, so they eagerly awaited Liui’s appearance.  He then came out from the back stage cosplaying as Koushi “Suga” Sugawara of Haikyuu!! to the cheers of the audience.  He then addressed the crowd and thanked them for coming and extending their support.







With Kei of our partner, Cosmic Bytes, hosting the progam, they happily gave away tarps, posters, and other great merchandise in a series of games.




Then came the meet-and-greet proper at the side of the venue where a really long line of fans almost immediately appeared in front of the table set up for the event.  Fans eagerly awaited their turn as Liui graciously signed autographs on tarps, posters, magazines, had selfies, and had his photos taken with his fans.






Cosplayers look up to Liui, which was probably why their support for him was the warmest of all.  They of course did not pass up the opportunity to share a short chat with him, exchange cos cards, take selfies, and do signature poses with him in front of the camera.












Notwithstanding the long line and huge turnout of the meet and greet, Liui was able to accommodate everyone, and after giving away more prizes with Cosmic Bytes, it was time for him to leave, but not without the applause and appreciation of the crowd.  It was a fun and memorable encounter with everyone, with Liui the most grateful one of all.









Thank you very much for dropping by, and please stay tuned for our feature on Misaki CyberCon 2014.  Many thanks to our partners Kei and Cosmic Bytes for the opportunity.  Visit us again for more cosplay features here at arkadymac.com.
