Keigo Atobe is a character from The Prince of Tennis, which is a very popular manga and anime that’s all-about one thing: soccer. Yeah, joking, sorry: it’s all about tennis, of course.
October 4 was Keigo’s “birthday,” and the Japanese snack company Morinaga hosted a super special birthday celebration in honor of the character in Tokyo’s Ikebukuro. The company made an image of Keigo’s face out of Dars chocolate squares, and, according to Twitter user Misz, over 8,600 Dars chocolate squares were used to make the image. Also, tons (and I mean tons) of fans showed up to how their love for the anime character.
Actually, it looks more like a funeral than a birthday party. See more pics after the break…
