After we did our live-streaming show, Today's Arrival (2016/12/09), we visited Hero☆Star to check on their construction progress. Mr. Wakafuji, the owner of the bar, welcomed us there and gave us some updates on it.
The picture on the left shows Mr. Wakafuji standing next to the bar counter and you see it is still not completed at this point. He explains that the counter will be covered with acrylic board on the top of it and many on mini-size figures will be displayed in the case with LED lights. So when you sit at the counter with your drinks, you can see through all the figures right beneath your arms on the counter. When you look out of the window form the counter, you will see 2 of 7-8 feet-tall Hero Figures standing by the windows behind Mr. Wakafuji. Above your head, there will be more clear cases and shelves for like Megazords and other Toku-Hero figures to be displayed.
Hero☆Star is not just for the drinks and toys. There will be a mini Karaoke stage way back in the room with large 3 LCD displays as well as DAM Karaoke System will be installed for Tokusatsu Fans to sing their favorite Toku-related Karaoke themes. Not just for the toku-dans, but this mini-stage will be used by Ani-son & Tokusatsu Song Singers in near future as Mr. Wakafuji plans to invite many of them just like he did last time.
The bar will be open on Dec. 20th for only limited friends & customers and Mr. Wakafuji & CSTOYS International are planning a small party on Saturday, Dec. 24th starting from 2 PM JST live-streaming from Hero☆Star. We will be testing out our Online Karaoke party for the first time ever with you and our friends from the world as well. More details on this will be coming soon so stay tuned.

Mr. Wakafuji is our toku friend here in Matsuyama, and we have been working together for quite some time now since we met at our ex-Okaido Store in 2011. His vast toku related toy-collections easily go over 40,000 and one of his main businesses has been to rent his precious collection to companies, local governments nationwide. "Hero Star", another part of his business operations, has been closed since last May 2016, and many of his local toku friends and fans have been waiting patiently for the new start of his bar, and we learned this today that his tokusatsu bar will be re-opened again on December 20th 2016 in the center of Matsuyama Downtown, with the size of 854 sq ft, well enough to hold a mini live concert with Anime & Tokusatsu Karaoke.
