Massive turnout for G-FEST XXV

G-FEST XXV will undoubtedly go down as the most successful to date. Over 3000 G-fans turned out for a weekend of kaiju films and fun from July 13th-15th, 2018. G-suit actor Ken Satsuma set a record for number of autographs signed, and Megumi Odaka’s session saw the largest audience ever for a guest interview. Keizo Murase and Daisuke Sato put on a great display of props and artifacts from his monster-making career, and Don Frye was his usual modest, unassuming self! The Tokusatsu Room presented, for the first time ever, an amazing Japanese-style stage show featuring monsters and heroes. So many activities, presentations, displays, models, and games… so much art, video-gaming, and shopping! For full details, pick up a copy of G-FAN #121, on sale in early October. Thanks to all who made G-FEST XXV the best ever!
