Seiyuus at College Festivals in the Coming Weeks

We are coming up to the school festival season at Japanese colleges. There will be over sixty seiyuu events at college festivals in Japan over the next few weeks: Yuuki Aoi, Hirano Aya, Yukana, Kobayashi Yuu, Inoue Marina, Fukuhara Kaori, Katou Emiri, Gotou Saori, Itou Shizuku and Nabatame Hitomi, Nanjou Yoshino, Asumi Kana, Taketatsu Ayana, Komatsu Mikako, Satou Satomi, Wakamoto Norio, Yamaguchi Kappei, Hirata Hiroaki, Morita Masakazu, Taniyama Kishou...on and on the list goes.

Many events appear to be short talk shows, and I think the college departments and clubs putting them on are sometimes making a nice profit. Some are already sold out -- although sometimes that "sold out" may just mean that the web pre-order period is over.

One of the ones to watch is an appearance by Terashima Takuma, one of the Kokoro Connect bullying incident perpetrators. The fact that it is at a women's college may keep some of the potential trouble in check.

Here is a link to a list of them all, in Japanese, with some details and links to more info. And here, just to make all of us who live outside Japan feel bad, are a number of highlights:

That event featuring Yukana and Kobayashi Yuu looks pretty interesting, as does the one with Shizuka-sama and Nabatame. I'm not sure how much precedence each group gives to their own students.

And I note that Yuuki Aoi, who apparently attends Waseda University, is doing her event at another school (Aoyama Gakuin).

At these kinds of events do they interact with the audience

@anonymous -- There are sometimes question-answer sessions, I think, but I don't think these are like the handshake sessions that sometimes take place. They seem to mainly be live shows. I've never been to one.
