Falcom Gakuen Season 2 and Other Announcements at the Comic Market 86 Falcom Talk Show

cm02

Comic Market 86, which is known as the largest exhibition of fan made creations in the world, ran at the Tokyo Big Site on 8/15 through 8/17. At the event, there is an industry section where game makers and other professional teams are able to sell special limited goods and display upcoming projects. As usual, every day at Comiket saw large crowds, and Falcom was one of the companies present to see the crowds.

On 8/16, the second day of Comiket, Falcom held a talk show event at their booth in the industry section, called ‘Okaji and Kotekana’s Falcom News Broadcast.’ This talk show was hosted by jdk Band lead/drummer Toshiharu Okajima and singer Kanako Kotera. The first 40 people to receive a ticket when shopping at their booth would have the opportunity to see the talk show.

With Okaji in his white lab coat and coke bottle glasses and Kanako in a maid outfit, once the area had been filled with participants, the show began.

The first part of the show involved a video that Kanako had recorded featuring behind the scenes footage of her trip to Hong Kong at the end of July for the Ani-Com event. Video footage included backstage shots, video of Kanako swimming at the pool, and even a video of her sleeping- with her face obscured through a mosaic by the staff. (Along with Kanako proclaiming that she’ll get her revenge for that shot!) Last but not least, the footage included images of Kanako and Falcom president Toshihiro Kondo greeting fans at Ani-Com.

The next piece of news is related to the first international jdk Band concert which will be held on 9/13 in Taiwan. Kanako was excited to reveal that the show is nearly sold out, and to commemorate the success of the show, a free custom theme for Sen no Kiseki will be available on the Asia Playstation Store from 9/11 to 9/16. Furthermore, at the event itself, it’s been decided that two lucky attendees will win a walkman and headphone set with hi-res tracks from the Kiseki series pre-installed.

To continue the string of live events after the Taiwan concert, on 9/27, the Falcom jdk BAND Live and Talk Show vol. 5 will take place at the usual Loft Plus One venue. On 10/25, at the Tachikawa Anikyan event, a talk event for Tio’s Falcom Radio will occur as well. Not only that, but from 9/12 through 9/28, a Falcom Exhibit will be on display at Multicity Shibuya was also announced.

The reveal of the Falcom Exhibit drew a surprise from the crowd, as it was the first announcement of such an event. While this event is being held alongside the Kiseki series 10th anniversary, the exhibit will show a display of various items throughout Falcom’s history including rare limited goods while music will play through the venue. Kanako even commented that after the Taiwan concert, the band members may try to slip into the venue while incognito.

Towards the end of the event, they were interrupted with a shout of ‘Go Fight!’ and sudden StarTrader music. Along with it, the monitors flashed on to images for the ‘Minna Atsumare! Falcom Gakuen’ anime, with the text to announce its second season, causing a loud applause from the guests. The broadcast dates and time will be announced on a future date- so pay attention to Falcom’s website for more details.

Once the event concluded, guests had the opportunity to meet up with Okaji and Kanako for handshakes, autographs, and hi-fives as well.
