Fresh from their guest appearance at the HERO Face Off cosplay event the day before, fans enjoyed a back-to-back treat as Japanese fantasy idol unit STARMARIE performed last June 6th at the Movie Stars Cafe, Mall of Asia Complex in Pasay City as part of their STARMARIE Asia Tour ~Fantastic~.

Though it was not their first visit in the country, STARMARIE, composed of Kishita Nozomi (木下望),Takamori Shino (高森紫乃), Matsuzaki Hiroka (松崎博香),Nakane Motoko (中根礎子) and Watanabe Kaede (渡辺楓) had already performed several times here, first at the Best of Anime event in 2013. It was their second live performance overseas. There were also several guest appearance and mini-concerts after that.

It was nostalgic how the three-member “fantasy unit” which started seven years ago, transformed into idol unit with five members, having a Asian concert tour and performing an ending song of a famous anime series Cardfight!! Vanguard G.

Before the main event started, there were performances from Movie Stars Cafe’s home-grown artists. A group skilled performers replicated a scene from Rurouni Kenshin series while an all girls dance troupe called “Tokyo Girls” had a sing and dance numbers with songs from famous Japanese idol group AKB48.

Aside from being an idol, the audience had a glimpse of STARMARIE’s Monya as a cosplayer. She walked onstage cosplaying as Nico Yazawa from Love Live! School Idol Project.  In an interview made by Jay of Deremoe, Monya said that she had previously cosplayed Sakura-hime from CLAMP’s Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle.

The event also hosted its own cosplay competition, “The Tokyo Cosplay Battle” wherein six excellent cosplayers performed onstage. The members of STARMARIE who were also the judges, were wowed on their performances and how detailed the costume of some cosplayers had. Tantin Meneses cosplaying as Ezra Scarlet emerged as the champion of the competition. Among the winners are War Machine, Voltes V and Final Fantasy’s Tifa.
