Visual Key booth at Charaexpo.

While most of the booths like Good smile Company, Amuse and Dentsu are regulars at such shows, Charaexpo saw the introduction of Visual Novels company booth such as Visual Key and Frontwing who are here for the 1st time. With the influx of Visual Novel localization like The Fruit of Grisaia and the upcoming Clannad on Steam and the popularity of the anime series Angel Beats. Its no wonder several the exclusive merchandise were sold out within a hour of opening.

One of the SPW exibition matches at the ring.

Another first for the event would be the NJPW. While they brought down several of thier Superstars, the ring also saw our local talents from SPW featured. Judging from the crowd response around the ring on both days and the postive remarks i am seeing on facebook, i guess they will be back for Charaexpo 2016.
