Let's talk about the VTuber industry with Kawa Entertainment
You can get VTuber merchandise from the Kawa booth in front of the Vendor Hall starting 10am this Friday.
Days before the big weekend, here's what Kawa's LunaVita generation has to say:
- Hunikinn: "I am so excited to cause chaos and mayhem in Ikkicon! It's my first convention going in-person, and I am so happy to get the opportunity to go! I am so grateful to Kawa!"
- Kota Kotonya: "I’m excited to be back at another fun convention! It’s always an amazing time meeting people and teaching others about the world of VTubing."
- Koziichu: "This is my first convention panel ever, and I get to do it alongside one of my friends, who's never experienced a con before! It means a lot that I get to do all of this, it's only ever been a dream before now. I'm nervous, but so excited!"
- Xion de Noir: "I am incredibly grateful to be given the opportunity to fulfill one of my greatest dreams—having a live concert. It's an amazing feeling to be part of something so great to accomplish such creative and lively feats."
- PiaPu UFO: "I never thought it'd be possible to get on stage in front of so many people, but it's been my dream for as long as I could remember. I get a little stage fright, and I can't dance too good but I pushed myself really hard every day so I could put on my best show. I seriously can't thank everyone enough for being there for me, for supporting me, and for pushing me to reach for the stars."
- Senniursa: "Being invited as a featured VTuber guest for Ikkicon is beyond a dream come true for me, as a long-time anime fan and convention lover—I cannot thank miss Muu and the staff at Kawa enough for their hard work making this happen! I am so, so excited for the con itself as well as all of the awesome people I'll get to meet. See you there~!!"
This is Kawa Entertainment's biggest participation to date, and we hope to meet you at the Kalahari Resort & Convention Center in Round Rock, Texas on the weekend of January 20-22. See us make bigger waves!
