Meanwhile, At The Akiba Denki Summer Matsuri

By Spencer . August 11, 2011 . 5:33pm


Video game publishers 5pb, Nippon Ichi, Acquire, and Idea Factory are part of a summer festival located at Belle Salle in Akihabara. Idea Factory’s business development manager, Damien Urvois, sent us a couple of photos of their booth and the Hyperdimension Neptunia cosplayers.


The slinu (that’s slime + inu, dog in Japanese) cushion is one of the items they’re selling. They also have a special t-shirt, postcard book, and festival set with a mirror, two microfiber cloths, and a big tote bag. You can see the items here.

  • Legendarydynasty Black

    HOLY SNAP.  Neptunia 2, steins;gate, beautiful cosplayers. I want that steins;gate car and i dont care what anybody says when they see me driving it. CURSE YOU Japan. so sad.  I guess we are not worthy enough. lol

  • Juuu

    A little let down by the cosplay; it would’ve been nicer if they had wigs/better ones. However, the suits in general are wonderful. :D

    Now more importantly-where can I get that cushion/plush/beanbag?!

  • Darkrise

    I want those Neptunia Mk-2 merch… And to take a pic of the Steins;Gate cosplayers..

    • Learii

      me tooo <3 those sexy cosplay

  • kupomogli

    I don’t care about any of the merchandise.  I’d rather just have the cosplayers.

  •!/SplashdownTiger STiger

    What?  Nobody cosplayed as Dr. Pepper…?

  • SoulArbiter

    Simply, “awesome”.

  • BTA

    Isn’t it kind of a bad weekend to have this? It’s Comiket and all, hah…

    • matty

      With game companies like that there, I know where I’d be. (Although, I’d try  like hell to be at both)

  • Kashell

    They look fierce and adorable!

  • matty

    No Ruka? Everyone always forgets Ruka…

    Ha, Slinu. I thought those were masks at first. I would love to see that, like those Prinny hats that NISA brought to Anime Expo last month. A sea of slinu.

  • PrinceHeir
