Koiwai Kotori and mathru@KanimisoP made an appearance at the event! They demonstrated how to create games and game commentary video with simple production tools, such as "mUniSm" and Gynoid Talk (text recitation software) using the voices of "MEIKA Hime & Mikoto"!

Koiwai was really excited to use "mUniSm." She enthusiastically told the crowd, "I didn't expect it to be this simple. I really want to try making my own game!" The character settings seemed to be very complicated, but KanimisoP offered some words of encouragement. He said, "it's just like filling in the profile column on a blog." Their demonstration gave the audience an idea of just how simple game production can be!

Koiwai KotoriCreating original characters is one of the most enjoyable parts of the process! You can only really experience it when you create a game by yourself
Koiwai was in charge of a demonstration that explained how to add commentary to a video! The tutorial went through each stage of the process. She started by recording Hime & Mikoto dialogue. The next challenge was to choose facial expressions (*from the wide variety of photoshop data, officially provided for Hime & Mikoto users) that match the dialogue, and to find an appropriate setting for the video. The gaming commentary video was complete before anyone had even realized! It was very impressive to see how skillfully Kotori used the computer and navigated through all apps!

The audience were so impressed by the easy-to-understand explanation, and the demonstration of simple, practical tools. After the lecture, Koiwai performed her original song "鳴花" (Meika). The crowd responded to Kotori with a large "HA!" You could feel the unity that existed between her and the audience! The short anime "Hakata Mentai! Pirikarakochan" currently uses MEIKA Hime & Mikoto's song for their end credits. The main character from the anime, Pirikarakochan, made appearance on stage and helped bring the event to a close!
