Quote Sillabub:
The rule seems to state that Shueisha characters are acceptable during the preliminaries as long as the host event agrees to it, they're just not acceptable during the finals. With that in mind, will Shueisha characters be acceptable at Hyper Japan?


Personally, I am more than happy for Shueisha characters to be used during the preliminaries (as long as the competing team changes their entry for the final) and we already have Toei Animation as a sponsor so I'm sure they won't mind us using their characters such as Dragon Ball and One Piece.

However, that's not to say that I'll randomly be informed of some random piece of bureacracy that says we can't use Shueisha characters - shall try and confirm with HJ (oh how I love working with the Japanese...)

Also, it will depend on the date for the preliminaries. If HJ keep their word and stick to March then it's fine, but any later and I don't think that would leave the teams with enough time to prepare a new performance + costume for the final.

I'm really excited about this! I've always been really interested in WCS and I've always wondered why the UK didn't compete.

derp

I heard the other day that Fatkraken and Xaereal aren't entering any more? Kind of seems a shame , I would have loved to see what they come up with. Oh well, I sure we'll have lots of great entries this year, can't wait to see what people enter as
