Mitsukoshi Charity Auction - 1995.05.21
On May 21, there was a charity auction event featuring many Sailor Moon seiyuu, and other seiyuu at the Mitsukoshi department store in Nihonbashi. The charity was for the victims of the Hanshin earthquake. This event was in the open, so everybody was allowed to participate. Pictures were allowed too. I only took 5.5 rolls. (^_^)
There were MANY people.. maybe a thousand or so. They had around 200 chairs, but those were taken by people who had camped out from the previous night. Some of my friends had an extra seat, so they asked me to take pictures from the second row. (^_^;;)
The event flowed as follows.
Because of the guests (Ogata Megumi and Kanemaru Jun'ichi), there were MANY junior high or high school girls.
song, talkThe first song was a duet by Tomizawa Michie and Fukami Rica. They sang Moonlight Densetsu and Otome no Policy. They talked a little about Sailor Moon. Tomizawa Michie said that Ami, Rei, Mako, and Minako will also power up. Michie had gone to a Crayon Shin-chan golf tournament the previous day, so she said that her body was hurting. She said that there were 40 people who participated, and she won! (She won the female section.. as she was the only female.)
During the music part of Otome no Policy, they yelled out, "Mars star power, make up!", "Venus star power, make up!", "Uranus star power, make up!" (Ogata Megumi came out too), "Fire soul!", and "Venus love me chain!"
The next guest was Ogata Megumi. She sang Endless Love, from her first album Half Moon.
The next guests were the young seiyuu. Shocker Ohno and Minky Yas came on the stage as the emcee. The seiyuu guests were Ichijou Kazuya (a dog in Galkeever), Yukino Satsuki (various kids roles in Crayon Shin-chan), Tange Sakura (Suzu in Marmalade Boy), Ikezawa Haruna (various girl and animal roles in Wedding Peach), and Makishima Naoki (Mughi in Dirty Pair, a ninja in Goldrun).
The young seiyuu were asked why they wanted to be a seiyuu..
The next guest was Kamiya Akira, and there was short talk session.
This event came to be when Kamiya Akira and Tomizawa Michie decided
to do something during a recording for Sailor Moon.
Akira said that they wanted to do another similar event later this year,
and one every year from now on.
Then they called out the veteran seiyuu: Nozawa Masako, Han Keiko, Ikura Kazu, and Nakao Ryuusei. There was a short talk session again.
Next Kanemaru Jun'ichi sang Ue wo Muite Arukou. After the song, there was a little talk session. Jun'ichi is currently writing a column in the Seiyuu Grand Prix magazine. He wants to write more, and next spring it will come out in a book.
The last song was by Hidaka Noriko, and she sang Megami ga Kureta Ichibyou. She also said that there will be a new single by the Banana Fritters (Seki Toshihiko, Yamadera Kouichi, Hidaka Noriko) in June.
auctionThen all of the guests came out with the things that they brought for the auction. They didn't do it in a normal auction style, as they wanted to keep the prices low. Most of the winners were chosen by janken.
Some of the things were as follows.
There were also 5 signature boards with everybody's signatures on it.
After the auction was over, everyone gave their final comments. Just then Hikami Kyoko came. She had some been doing some work until then.
my picutesI brought lots of film, but I only took 5.5 rolls, as I sold my film to my friends ran out of their film. (^_^;;) It was outdoors and the weather was cloudy. But it was still bright enough to take decent pictures. (I didn't go pick up my pictures yet.) But towards the end of the event it started getting dark, so I used the flash. (I'm not sure if it worked at that distance of 15 meters.)
My picture breakdown is as follows..
