What You Need to Know:
- You may have heard of Wonder Festival as we covered the Winter version of it last year. Just in case you missed it or are new to the site, if Comiket, which everyone knows, is for doujinshi and manga, then Wonder Festival is for those who love figurines. This special festival is a time when various exhibitions and launches of many lines of figurines and more are announced!
- This year, Wonder Festival 2017[Summer] is slated for July 30th and will run from 10am to 5pm. It will be held yet again this time at Makuhari Messe in Chiba Prefecture, and for those interested, it is ¥2500 (~$22) to get in. This year they are boasting that over 1,950 dealers will be present selling their wares!
- Celebrating that over 50,000 people attended last year, the next exhibition has also been revealed. Titled "Wonda-chan NEXT DOOR PROJECT", this project teases that it will have just the right balance of cuteness and sex appeal with the main character titled Wonda-chan. We were teased by the announcement saying "isn't it just odd that we have never yet had an official figure for an event this large?" and this plan to bring it to fruition was born from that very thought that the organizers had for Wonder Festival 2017[Summer]! The next release of information is set to come out on Friday, June 23rd, so keep it here with us as we break the news about Wonder Festival 2017[Summer] to you then! In the meantime, check out the teaser visual for Wonda-chan below!
