    Japan PonyCon 2015 Writeup

    Japan PonyCon Spring 2015 has ended, and what a day it was! On May 4th, 2015, in Kita-ku, Tokyo, in the Hokutopia Building, the 5th Japan PonyCon was held.

    Taking the 13th and 14th floors, 396 bronies attended and had a great time all day. Guests are one of the biggest draws for any brony convention, and JPC was no exception.

    The day started with a video skype call to the
    wonderfully talented Cathy Weseluck, who answered questions, chatted with fans, and even showed her improv skills by creating a nervous dragon's Japan PonyCon Anthem!

    For the first time, Japan PonyCon had live guests! Musicians The Living Tombstone and Eurobeat Brony were able to come and visit Japan, interact with fans all day, and perform live at the DJ Event! This is
    the first time Japan PonyCon has been able to have guests of honor visit us in person, so we were very excited to have them, and they, by all accounts, were a ton of fun, and rocked the house.

    For the charity auction, once again, proceeds went to Orphans of the 2011 Tohoku Quake. There were many items to be had, including stunning artwork, signed comics, An Elements of Harmony book signed by 5 of the MLP writing staff, a Season 4 original script signed by writer Josh
    Haber, and a full sized Derpy fursuit.

    All in all, over ¥300,000 ($2520) was raised!

    Panels throughout the day on both floors covered tips of starting conventions, preparing a Season Five bingo card, background pony and Easter egg scene discussions, and a hidden stamp rally with special prizes for whoever could find all 6. The artist alley was busy as usual, with many high quality items for sale and lines forming for
    each vendor soon after opening.

    This time around, 57 people signed up for Spirit Attendance. That means, those people will soon have a Japan PonyCon badge, conbook, and a few Japanese treats heading their way, all over the world. At only ¥1500 ($12.50), we think that's a great deal, and hope more people will support future Japan PonyCons in this manner.

    Japan PonyCon Spring 2015 was a great success, and we would like to thank all of our guests, skype and live, attendees, and staff for helping to make it such a wonderful, memorable time.

    The next Japan PonyCon will be in 2016- we hope to see you there!
