Kiiyan is America-bound!


, , , ,

Yes, really, truly, Kiiyan (and e-zuka) will be boarding a plane for the U.S. (Los Angeles) soon. Hell has frozen over!  Since he hasn’t publicized why they’re going, I won’t spoil the secret either (Ro-gumi has known for little while about this). But it should be fantastic when they’re done!

Sega Cafe reservations



Reservations have opened for the first few days of the Sega Granrodeo collaboration cafe. Reservations can be done online only, and are done by lottery.


Reservation site

You must create an account on the site, but it is free to do so. You just need an email account.

The reservation dates, lottery dates, and notification dates, along with the six 90 minute blocks available each day can be seen here.

1, 2 or 4 seats per block may be reserved.

Lottery Process

During the entry time frame for your date(s), click the button for 1, 2 or 4 seats, log in, then select your date and time frame. Follow the instructions to submit your entry.

Do not submit more than one reservation per day; this will disqualify your entries.

During the notification time frame you should receive an email with your results. If you do not receive the email, log in to confirm them.

First Come, First Served Process

Starting 10/3, you can also sign up for spots not taken by lottery or opened up due to cancellation. There’s no need to register, and if there’s open spaces, you’ll receive an email with the results.

Each morning at the cafe, at 9:30 AM, you can also line up to see if there are open seats for that day.
