A returning competition from last year's SOY was the Karaoke competition which was sponsored by Animax this year. A familiar face seen among the panel of judges is Aya who won the competition last year cosplaying as Black Rock Shooter for the event.
Looking back at last years competition, this year's contestants are definitely of a higher level. From slow emotional songs to happier tunes, the contestants entertained the audience with their songs and even got them clapping along as well.
With more sponsors comes more prizes to give away and get the audience involved too. And this little competition was involved contestant B1, the BOX. While the contestants looked like they had fun with it, I do wonder what the owner was thinking.
And since there was still time and more prizes, nothing beats a little game of scissors paper stone.
To round up this segment of the stage activities was a performance by the Haru Stars and Haru Friends from Haru House. Haru House has always been involved in the local cosplay community and its nice to see them here at SOYC.
