“Being one of the very first anime-themed events on an Olympic-sized skating rink in the Philippines, if not the world, fans got to skate and live out the experience from last year’s smash anime hit, with a terrific program and some nice prizes for attendees.
Although set in the evening, fans were already there early afternoon so as not to miss a single minute of the pre-party. At the designated time, they lined up properly, and while they waited, they would be heard chatting animatedly amongst themselves, all obviously excited of the event, even sharing a story or a joke or two. Even strangers got to be good friends afterwards just because of their shared love for the anime.
Everyone had a splendid time as they relived their favorite anime on the ice that Yuri loved, and even for just a night, they all got to bond, sing the theme song together, and, in a friendly and supportive atmosphere, got to live out their fantasies on the ice together. And for these, we congratulate the organizers for doing an amazing job of putting this one-of-a-kind history-making event together, a feat even established organizers would be envious of.” (arkadymac.com)
