Shinjuku Station has been transformed for a limited time with anime girls on pylons and stages and huge animated digital LED displays!

The Tokyo Metro Promenade area that runs below ground at Shinjuku Station is proving to be one of the most popular spots in the city for some weird and wonderful promotional activities. We’ve seen everything from Psycho Pass motion sensor screens to huge Yu-Gi-Oh! displays and even a giant back cat that gave out free gifts. Now, for a limited time, the area will be covered with cute girls from The Idolmaster game series.

The promotion has been set up to celebrate the first anniversary of the popular Idolmaster Cinderella Girls: Starlight Stage mobile game. An 80-metre (262-foot) stretch along the promenade, which connects the station entrance to the Marunouchi subway line, now greets commuters with dozens of characters from the series.


▼ The girls appear on pylons…

▼ Performance stages…

▼ And a pair of huge plushies from the series also make an appearance!

Enthusiastic fans who might be tempted to join in and interact with the characters are cautioned with a sign that says “Please Don’t Touch the Display” and “Please Don’t Wave Penlights”.

In amongst it all, fans are being blown away by the gorgeous digital displays.

This one shows a huge number of adorably small “Puchiderella” idols from the series.

And this fan can’t help singing along to the show as it appears on the screen before him!

If you’d like to see the Idolmaster promotion in person, it’s only around for a short time, from 12 to 18 September, so be sure to stop by soon before it gets packed away to make room for the next awesome promotion on the promenade!
