Event: Anisama in Shanghai
The biggest anime music concerts are Animelo Summer Live at the Saitama Super Arena in Japan. The first overseas version of this concert, Anisama in Shanghai -Only One-, was held in China on February 19, 2011, with seventeen artists/groups including JAM Project.
CATE La Maid The obvious place to have lunch before the concert was in a neighborhood of big electronics/computer stores near Shanghai's Xujiahui metro station. On the fourth floor of the Buy Now store is CATE La Maid, a maid cafe known for waffles. CATE stands for "Coffee", "Animation", "Tea" and "Entertainment".
Continuing south down the street from Buy Now is the concert site which is known variously in English as the Shanghai Indoor Stadium, the Shanghai Gymnasium or the Shanghai Grand Stage.

The pictures from inside the concert hall are not too exciting. Photography was not allowed during the concert and ushers with flashlights enforced the rules. It even appeared that one usher near the stage was using a green laser to stop someone on the third level of the hall from using a camera. before Anisama in Shanghai
after Anisama in Shanghai For a while, it appeared that people might sit in their seats for the entire concert. After intermission, most of the audience stood up when Masami Okui led Yoko Ishida, Minami Kuribayashi and Faylan in signing A Cruel Angel's Thesis from Neon Genesis Evangelion.
The concert was about four hours plus intermission. It was reported that the audience was over 8,000 people and 100,000 people watched the live web broadcast on Nico Nico Douga. Orepara (Opera?), a group composed of voice actors including Mitsuo Iwata, the voice of Gan-chan from The Adventures of Mini-Goddess, had quite a following from supporters in matching T-shirts to supporters with lighted signs.
