    Rebby, My Toko 2018 Review.

    Tokonatsu 2018 for me was a big eye opener. It was the first time I’d been fully involved with the Toko-R pre-Festival process. I learned how dedicated they are and how much time, effort and planning goes into conceptualising, creating and running the awesome events they put on! In the weeks and months running up to the event, there were regular meetings and ongoing discussions to agree on the best way to achieve what they had planned. Alongside that is all of this… the content you’re reading now. It’s important for us to share the anticipation we feel ahead of the event and the genuine excitement that builds in each…

    My Tokonatsu 2018 Highlights

    July 31st Wednesday The annual tradition of my Tokonatsu adventure always begins with packing the essentials. Over the years I have learned to travel light. Keeping your checklist short, lessens the chance to forget something important. Next, I get myself over to my fellow con-goers house and spend the night to ensure we are all together for take-off in the morning. August 1st Thursday Might sound odd, but the three-hour car journey going to Tokonastu is one of my favourite parts of this annual tradition. I am tucked up in the backseat alongside the mass of luggage and cosplay with a tub of haribo and or my brother’s homemade beef…

    Toko-R’s Best bits of 2018 – Rezal

    Well, it’s been quite a bit longer than I expected between posts, but life happens sometimes! This week, continuing our series on Tokonatsu Highlights, I’ll be going over my best bits, and what I loved! Werewolf Ultimate For me personally, the highlight of the weekend was getting to play Werewolf Ultimate, run by our Chairman Myst! For those unfamiliar, as I was, it’s similar to Resistance, in so far that you have two teams one of good guys, and one of bad. None of the good know who the bad are, but all of the bad know each other. Each day, a vote is passed to declare one villager as…

    Toko-R’s Best bits of 2018 – M pro

    As promised, I’ve been hitting up some of our staff to find out what their favourite parts of this year’s Tokonatsu have been. We all put in a lot of hard work, but we also all had so much fun! Starting things off are Mike’s (M pro) highlights! “Where to start? Well for me Toko 2018 was amazing! As well as Busy! And Hectic! And one more amazing! It was a time of unknowns in many ways. This year it was new tent time for TokoR and unfortunately, due to time restraints, we didn’t get to test the new tent before Toko. Thankfully we didn’t have too many problems, and…

    Thunderbolt Fantasy

    Recently, I was sat watching some Anime with my housemate, and he was like “have you seen Thunderbolt Fantasy? Oh man! It’s awesome, put it on!” So, naturally I was expecting Anime, but what I got I was not prepared for. My first thoughts were, “Japans done a Thunderbirds?” as you are presented with a set of puppets moving in real time, with very extravagant movements and in VERY ornate costumes. Initially, this put me off, but only for about two seconds, as the show immediately kicks off with why it’s amazing. Rarely have I seen fight scenes so well executed, and never have I seen it done with puppets.…

We are wrapping up our run up to Tokonatsu series with an article about ourselves, what we are, and what we are bringing to Tokonatsu this year. Toko-Retreat So, you’ve probably seen us around over the years, and wondered who we are. Some have asked if we’re committee, we’re not, though we are on staff this year. We have been mistaken for being an elite click of attendees that have super powers, and you can’t approach, this is also rubbish! (Though…
