Jump Festa 2001
Although this event took place on December 23 and 24, 2000, it was called Jump Festa 2001. This event was free, and open to the public.
On 12/23, I arrived at Makuhari Messe at around 7:00, thinking that it wouldn't be too bad (crowd wise). I was wrong. It was very crowded, mostly with grade school and junior high school kids. I thought that I would be in for very bad wait..
But it turned out that there were two lines. One for the main entrace, and one for the goods. There were over 10,000 people in line for the goods (as the line of people wound around the Makuhari Messe building). But there were only about 1000 people lined up for the main entrance. So I wasn't in such a bad position after all. Also instead of letting in at 9:00, they let in at 8:30 because of the crowd.
After I got in, I headed directly for the Banpresto booth, where there were only a few people (all of them my friends), and stayed there the whole day. Nagai Nobuko, Tsuchiya Mieko, and Sawai Natsumi were going to be the emcee girls at the Banpresto booth on 12/23. Takahira Jun, Shintani Sayaka, and Minano Fuuko were going to be the emcee girls on 12/24.
Photos, videos were allowed! (^_^)
The schedule for the Banpresto booth on December 23 was as follows.
