The event Virtual Shibuya helped promote release of Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 with talks and performances from SEKAI NO OWARI’s DJ LOVE, virtual YouTuber and member of Nijisanji Ange Katrina, Chinatsu Wakatsuki of Future Design Shibuya, and Naohiro Ukawa of S/U/P/E/R DOMMUNE—all of whom are fans of Ghost in the Shell.

     

    Officially recognised by Shibuya City, Virtual Shibuya comes in response to the effects of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) which has brought tight restrictions to the economy and people’s way of life. It will enable people to continue enjoying entertainment from the comfort of their homes by participating in a whole host of virtual events and activities. The project aims to deliver content from Shibuya with live performances from artists, art exhibitions, talks, and more. The use of 5G and the latest cutting edge technology will connect the real Shibuya to a virtual space, combining the realms of the digital and real world.

     

    The guests joined over 50,000 users for the first event which went down a storm. Chinatsu Wakatsuki said: “I was amazed how much it looked like Shibuya! I can’t go to Shibuya right now, so it felt like I got to visit home again after so long.”

     

    Shibuya was fully recreated a virtual space for people to visit

    Lots of Ghost in the Shell fans gathered in the city

    Everybody in this virtual world jumped into their avatar skins, including the diverse range of guests who probably would never have come together had it not been for the Ghost in the Shell theme, as well as DJ LOVE, Katrina, Chinatsu Wakatsuki, and Naohiro Ukawa.

    The real world and the world of Ghost in the Shell collide

    The four performers, who were coming face to face with each other for the first time, talked to guests about what they love about Ghost in the Shell while strolling around Virtual Shibuya and having fun with fans on equal terms.

     

    Comments from the performers

    ・Chinatsu Wakatsuki (Future Design Shibuya)
    “I was amazed how much it looked like Shibuya! Shibuya is a place I hold near and dear to my heart. There were a lot of ‘firsts’ for me, like my first time using an avatar, and meeting new people for the first time, so I thought it was going to be difficult at first, but I found myself not nervous at all and had fun with everyone in there using this futuristic entertainment. Looking forward, au 5G will grow and the number of things we can do will as well. I hope to challenge myself as a tarento and a mum in many different things and have fun with this Virtual Shibuya!”

     

    ・“DJ LOVE” (SEKAI NO OWARI)
    “It felt like I had dived right into the world of Ghost in the Shell, my favourite series. It was a wonderfully fun event which expanded on my dreams. I’m looking forward to seeing it evolve and I hope to perform live there at some point. I want to make stuff that people who haven’t been physically able to go to venues up to now can enjoy. I think it would be fun to communicate with people who participated.”

     

    ・Ange Katrina
    “The streets of Shibuya I know were completely transformed into the world of Ghost in the Shell, and my favourite Tachikoma made an appearance too. For a Ghost in the Shell fan like myself it was a whale of a time! Right now we have to battle with staying indoors. Me having disappeared has caused a bit of trouble, but the thrill of this virtual event has lifted my nerves. I had a lot of fun.”

     

    You can check out footage from the event in the video below which was posted on Shibuya 5G Entertainment Project’s official YouTube channel.

  • Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make Pompompurin Cheese Tarts

    17.May.2020 | FEATURES / FOOD

    With just a small bit of ingenuity, turn everyday food into something cute using Kaori’s Easy Recipe! With a few simple ideas, an ordinary recipe magically transforms into a cute dish.

     

    In today’s recipe, I’ll be showing you how I made a batch of Pompompurin cheese tarts made using store-bought tart cups.

     

    Ingredients (Makes 9-10)

    9-10 store bought tart cups
    200g cream cheese (brought to room temperature)
    20-30g sugar
    1 egg yolk
    50ml fresh cream
    8g potato starch (katakuriko)
    Vanilla beans to taste (can be substituted for vanilla extract)
    1 tbsp lemon juice

     

    Step 1


    Pour the following ingredients into a bowl in this order: cream cheese→sugar→egg yolk→vanilla beans→fresh cream→potato starch. Mix well. Make sure when you put the potato starch in last that you sprinkle it thinly.

     

    Step 2
    Bake the tart cups in an oven at 180℃ for 15-20 minutes. If you don’t have store-bought cups, you can use small cocotte dishes.

     

    Step 3

    Leave to cool. Now you can start drawing the face.

    For the hat I used sliced chocolate, for the ears sliced cheese, and for the facial features a chocolate pen.

    Once you’ve drawn the face, it’s time to tuck in!

    Neko Neko Cheesecake is a sister brand of Neko Neko Kuu Pan from the same company which serves cat-shaped bread. Online deliveries will make for the perfect opportunity to bring that cafe experience to your own home.

    Neko Neko Cheesecake – ¥1,800 (Before Tax) / Size: 11cm, 475g

    The cake is made from the luxurious French brie cheese Brie de Meaux which is mixed with a homemade apricot jam to create rich, deep flavour. This means the cheesecake not only looks cute, but is the real deal too.

     

    Their secret to bringing about amazing flavour and not just adorable looks can be broken down into four simple steps.

    ①They use the king of cheeses, Brie de Meaux.
    ②Although baked, the cheesecake is so soft it has a similar texture to a no-bake cheesecake.
    ③The sweet and sour homemade apricot jam elevates the overall flavour.
    ④The combination of mature cheese and the apricot jam changes the flavour to create a completely new kind of cheesecake.

    The cheesecakes are boxed in box that has a simple yet chic design with two cats sat side by side.

     

    The store will open on May 20, and online orders will launch on ALL HEARTS MALL on the same day.
