Buried in a quick update about the upcoming merger into parent company Bandai Namco, Lantis announced that 2019 will see the 20th anniversary Lantis Matsuri. The last round of Lantis Matsuri live shows was in 2014, for the company’s 15th anniversary. Details will be forthcoming.
For a second week in a row, the show will air from 24:55 ~ 25:20. This time there will be footage from this past weekend’s Tsumagoi Resort Fan Club trip! (You can see the Music Garden hall stage in the bottom pic.)
This week, Kiiyan starts off talking about Hallowe’en, then moves on to talk about the odd wrap (see pic below) that he had on his arm at the Lantis Matsuri show on 9/15.
It had looked like he hurt his left arm (and indeed, he apologized for making people think he’d gotten hurt). But it turns out it’s an NBA (National Basketball Association) arm supporter signed by former New York Knicks player John Starks. A WOWOW staffer got it for him overseas and gave it to him the day before at the Kishidan Banpaku. Kiiyan then went on to talk about basketball for the rest of the show.
Bromides of 106 Lantis performers (see sample below) will be available at 300 yen a draw at the 9/13 and 9/14 Lantis Matsuri performances at Odaiba. (The 9/15 show isn’t mentioned). Some lucky winners will get signed cards! And there’s mention of a special mobile kuji that can result in winning the bromide binder shown to the left.
