  • Report version 0.9 by Hitoshi Doi, 1995.04.13

On April 9, 1995, the Ani Chari 4.9 event, a charity event to raise money for the Kansai earthquake victims, was held in the Suginami Koukaidou. There were over 1000 people who participated.

The event flowed as follows.

  • Lobby bazaar
  • OAV showing
  • Auction and songs

Lobby bazaar

There were over 1000 people, so they staggered the entry into the event, and they let in 250 people at a time. In the lobby, they had tables where they sold cels, signature boards, illustration boards, and various other items. Each group of 250 people had 30 minutes to do their shopping. When they were done with the shopping, they were free to go to the auditorium, where they were showing various OAVs.

I was number 470, so I was in the second group. (from 12:30 to 13:00) [I got this ticket from Mr. Event107, as my number was in the 800's and he wasn't going to be able to come to this event.]

The cels ranged in price from 500 yen to 5000 yen. All of the cels were in envelopes, and we were allowed to choose the show, but not the cel. We were allowed to buy as many bags as we wanted. I got Electra (Fushigi no Umi no Nadia), Chacha, Riiya, and Yuri and Hinagiku (Wedding Peach). Other shows that they had were: Mahoujin Guru Guru (signed cels for 5000 yen), Macross 7, Moldiver, Crayon Shin-chan, Iczelion, and Onikirimaru.

The signature boards were 500 yen, the monochrome illustration boards were 1000 yen, and the color illustration boards were 2000 yen. When I went, they didn't have many left, and there weren't any signature boards of people I liked.

I think there were a total of 5 groups, so this lasted from 12:00 to 14:30.

OAV showing

While they were letting the people in and doing the lobby bazaar, they showed the following OAVs.

  • Shin Megami Tensei episode 1
  • SM Girls Saber Marionette R episode 1
  • Tekkaman Blade II episode 6

Auction and songs

The main event started at around 14:45. I was fortunate enough to find a seat in the second row! \(^_^)/

The emcee was a radio announcer from Radio Kobe.

part 0

At the beginning, they called out around 15 anime publishers, writers, and other people who were the AniChari committee members. (There were people from OUT, Animedia, AnimeV, etc..)

At first, they thought about using the name "Taku Chari" (taken from Otaku Charity). But they changed the name.

Then they called singer Mizuki Ichirou to sing Gatchaman 94.

After the song, Furuya Tohru and Tanaka Mayumi came out, and they were going to help out with the emceeing. Tohru said that they sales in the lobby went really well, and everything sold out. They made around 1.5 million yen.

part 1: illustrations

In this section Ashida Toyoo (Granzort, Wataru, Vifam) came and they auctioned his original illustrations. There were many Granzort, Vifam, and Wataru illustrations and cels (poster sized). Ashida Toyoo signed each one.

Then they called singer Uchida Junko, who brought a bag and book for the auction. After it got auctioned off, she sang Korosuke Rock.

In this section, they auctioned the many items brought by the announcers (Furuya Tohru, Tanaka Mayumi, and the radio announcer).

They also played a tape message by Hidaka Noriko. The only part I remember was, "I can't come because I'm doing a Ranma 1/2 after recording today." Then they auctioned off the right to become her assistant on her radio show (taken in a Tokyo studio, but broadcast in kansai). This went for 55,000 yen.

At the end of this section, Ishida Yoko and Hashimoto Yoshio came out to sing. Yoko had cut her hair very, very short. Yoko sang Otome no Policy, and Yoshio sang Moonlight Densetsu.

Then Yamano Satoko came and sang her version of Ringo no Uta, with Ishida Yoko, Hashimoto Yoshio, Takimoto Hitomi, and Uchida Junko as the dancers in the back.
