Promoting the currently airing Gakuen Toshi Asterisk, Aniplex showcased several of the series’s main chara at their booth.


Elsewhere, standees of characters from the sequel to the most anticipated kemonomimi anime of past, Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen, which is also currently airing, can be seen at Aniplus HD booth.

They’re also gifting out mini standees of the said characters, all 8 of them!
