Scan the QR code, enter the keyword and you’ll receive a message from the character. Also, if you see the movie at a cinema in Japan, keep your ticket stub. Take it to the fair and you’ll get a free gift!

If you go to either the Shibuya or Yokohama branches between August 3 to 19 or the Tennoji or Sapporo branches between August 25 and September 9, you can get your hands on limited edition merchandise, including the above A2 tapestry, as well as look at the many images on display looking back over the show at another exclusive event titled ‘Animate Only Shop.’ Additionally, if you purchase select goods at these stores during these dates, you’ll get one of five random character cards above.
