Event Report #13: A Report from the "Stage Greetings! To Celebrate the Movie Becoming a Major Hit! With an Outbreak of Pikachu" Held Saturday August 14th!
Stage greetings just got held to commemorate that that the double feature "Pokémon the Movie XY: The Archdjinni of Rings - Hoopa/Pikachu and the Pokémon Musicians" became such a major hit!
The greetings were held in the Yokohama Minato Mirai area, where the "Dancing? Pikachu Outbreak-Chu"
is currently taking place. As a special service, there was also a Pikachu outbreak at the "Aeon Cinema Minato Mirai"!
This is a status report from this Pikachu-filled stage greeting, where guest voice actor Shoko Nakagawa also appeared!
The movie has just finished screening in the theater, and the audience are standing by for the stage greeting, having all turned into Pikachu themselves!
The moderator, Annnouncer Konno from TV Tokyo, walks in!
Her Pikachu hairband is super cute!
She was followed by Shoko Nakagawa, aka Shokotan, the voice of Mary!
Today, the blockbuster "The Archdjinni of Rings: Hoopa" passed the 1.8 million attendees mark!
Shokotan even went to see it twice!
Yokohama is currently filled to the brim with the Pikachu from the "Dancing? Pikachu Outbreak-Chu"
, but there's a huge outbreak of Pikachu in the movie as well, isn't there?
There is! There's a whole ton of them!
When all those Pikachu appeared, what really left an impression on me was that each and every one of them were moving completely independently of each other! Since this in a movie, you get to fully enjoy the various Pikachu in gorgeous animation, including Pikachu you don't normally see, like Madame Pikachu and Doctor Pikachu!
Every time you watch the movie, you discover new things, so I'd love for you to go see it both two and three times!
Also, the thing is, lots of Pikachu have come to this theater as well!
Yes, I was really looking forward to that! It looks like it's finally time!
These stage greetings filled with Pikachu take place today only!
Let's all call for them! Ready? Aaaand!
It's a Pikachu...
It's a Pikachu...!
It's a Pikachu...!!
It's a Pikachu... Outbreak!!!!
The theater explodes with excitement!
Shokotan gets a commemorative photo as well!
And then another one together with Announcer Konno!
These Pikachu are really obedient and nice little fellows!
They move according to Shokotan's signals,
and dance along as Shokotan sings "DreaDrea", the ending theme to the "Pocket Monsters XY" anime!
This was a fun stage greeting with a total of 20 Pikachu, one that even allowed for the audience to take photos!
The double feature "Pokémon the Movie XY: The Archdjinni of Rings - Hoopa/Pikachu and the Pokémon Musicians" has now exceeded 1.8 million attendants! It's a massive hit!
Hurry up and get yourself to a theater before summer vacation ends!
