Today's Super Festival was held on a gorgeous autumn day. Maybe because of the season, or because enough time has passed since 3/11, but this event had far more new releases, new sculpts, and new exhibitors than the previous SF. Everyone was in good spirits, and, like with all SFs, once the opening rush died down, people just hung around, chatted, and had a good time.
This was the first time I was able to put my new camera to the test, and it pulled through really nicely. I was able to take some creative angled and macro shots that I wouldn't even dare try with my previous rig.
One of the highlights of the show for me was meeting Mr. Tatsuhiko Akashi, Medicom's boss. I thanked him for everything he's done to support indie sofubi, and he surprised me by saying he's a Kaiju Korner reader!
Well, without further ado, here's Kaiju Korner's SF 57 report (about 240 photos this time), with pics arranged by maker. (Click on each pic to see the full size.) Enjoy!
