After going to the Aichi Arts Center we had some food and some nice chat with the other participants and changed slowly in our costumes.
We also checked our props and just waited until it was our turn.
But before going on stage, the staff told us that we have been nominated for the Brother award. We were really really happy, because that means we were one of the top 4 costumes!
They told us to go into a very small room, where the Brother staff checked our costumes (for about 1 minute). That means even if you are 4th place during the costume judging, if Brother likes you costume you still have a chance to get this award.
After our performance the host was asking us some questions and we went back to backstage.
During the WCS you always have at least one camera following you. They are also filming at the bus or when you are going (for example) to the Pokemon park. I got pretty much used to it directly after arriving at the airport, that they are filming you and asking you questions.
Even during changing or doing make up (of course they asked beforehand) they filmed us.
The staff forgot that during the practice barely anyone had their costume on.
If you won an award, you step to the front (or fight you way through the first row) got the sponsor board, smiled and went back to your place.
The funniest thing was, that no one knew what the special prices mean (of course everyone knew the Brother and Nico Nico award).
When the Nico Nico award was announced I was freaking out again because I never expected to be one of the candidates for the Nico Nico award. I know that Germany never was good at skits. I was so happy!
When I saw that people really voted for us at the end vote I felt so happy! Thanks, really thanks for all your support!!!

Chiko and I were so happy! For us this was everything we wanted. We knew we were top 4 of costume and top 2 at Nico Nico. At this point we knew whatever comes; we are satisfied with what we could reach. We knew we gave our best and the people liked our worked.
First of the A block and afterwards of the B block.
You were supposed to step into the front and waved and step back.
Afterwards the B block moved to the front and changed places with the A block.
Sadly we weren’t chosen for the finals, but we didn’t care.
But when we went backstage everyone was running around hectically.
We just went there and stood around with our organizers.
We also started packing our stuff until someone told us to gather at the stage.
The staff thanked us for the cooperation and told us the schedule for tomorrow, as well what the teams are supposed to do.
After the briefing they told us that due to a counting mistake two teams haven’t been chosen to be at the 2nd stage, although they were supposed to be.

You cannot imagine what a great honor it was and how happy we were!
They really asked us if it’s ok to include the two teams who have been chosen mistakenly.
Actually why did he asked? Of course it was! It would have felt really bad if they would kick out teams because of me…
Afterwards they started the appearance order lottery for the stage.
We were number 17th.
After changing, grabbing some food of the backstage buffet, we went back to the hotel and slept or tried to sleep. Because I was so nervous and excited that I barely could close my eyes.
