Blamo Toys, Dragatomi, Kuso Vinyl, Neon Monster and Team Skullyboom for taking a chance on this, and I give them big props for their role in making the day great for so many people.
Mori Chack, creator of Gloomy Bear, drew a big crowd inside the New People building. Politely and patiently (so Japanese), he doodled and signed every one of the exclusive T-shirts made for the event. I felt so ashamed that my Jewfro couldn't hold a candle to Mori-san's buoyant Asian afro! (Although, come to think of it, one wouldn't want to put an open flame near an afro...) It turns out Mori and I have something in common besides being hirsute: both of us love the color green.
The Pocky-eating contest was another highlight of the event. Pocky is wonderful, and yet also, extremely dry. Although bottled water was provided, drinking it would really turn the Pocky to mush and only serve to gum up your throat. The winning contestant was a short guy from Sacramento who consumed over a dozen boxes of Pocky. Go shorties! We'll eat you under the table!
Is that a challenge? See you next year at the J-Pop Summit! (You can find more photos on my Flickr and more toy stories on my site.)
