This event was held at Shinjuku Station Square, just outside of Shinjuku Station East exit. It was held in the open, and was free. This was actually and event to promote the sales of the Shrek 2 DVD. There were many Shrek events, and a few other events during the day.

One of the events was a Caramel Police stage, with Inoue Kikuko, Nagai Noa, and four other young seiyuu. This stage had a little bit of talk, then a few songs (Kikuko solo, Noa solo, other girls), and a game corner. This stage was almost one hour (probably the longest stage of the day).

Yamadera Kouichi also appeared for a short time as a special guest for a short talk about Shrek. Kouichi does the voice of the donkey in the Japanese dub version of Shrek.

Since this event was held in the open, many normal people who just happened to pass by also watched. But the first two rows were taken up by older boys, who waited for the Caramel Police event from the beginning.

Also even though this event was held in the open, photos weren't allowed. But during most of the events, the staff weren't stopping people from taking pictures. (So many people who just pass by have cameras in their cell phones.)

But during the Caramel Police event, the staff were very strict about photos, and they quickly stopped people who tried to take photos.

Since I wasn't 100% sure I can take photos, I only brought one camera and a couple of lenses. I took some pics of Yamadera Kouichi, but I couldn't get any of Noa or Kikuko. The attitiude of the staff made this the least enjoyable event I have gone to in a long time. I'll probably never go to a Kikuko or Noa event any more. I hope Noa will quit Office Anemone.
