In November of 1996 (11/2 to 11/4), the Playstation Expo and E3 game shows were held at the Makuhari Messe together. Once you got a ticket for either event, it will "free" to go to the other one. The Playstation Expo was much bigger, and much more flashy. (This was the first year that they had the E3 event in Japan.)

As usual for the recent game shows, there were several seiyuu related events at the vendor booths and main stages.

The seiyuu events were as follows.
