This year Oni-Con had Ganglion as the main musical guest and I was really excited to see them live! Oni is my favorite model and I've been listening to the band for a little over a year. It was actually really surprising when Oni-Con announced them as the guest because I never thought they'd be able to come overseas. Big thanks to Babel Entertainment for bringing them over.
Some of my buddies for the weekend were Hina & Alys, Pengu, Miss Lillith, and grimy13 in respective order.

We got the front row, so I managed to get great concert pictures. Since it was Halloween, everyone except Oni came out in masks. Ebi was wearing a R.I.P. skull, Sagara wore Batman, and Vivi was wearing a kunoichi facial mask.

Right after the concert, there was an autograph session. The CDs I bought were Distance standard edition and The World Standard Limited Edition. I also bought a poster and 2 clear files. It's a good thing we got our stuff early because they completely sold out of merchandise later in the night. Of course, I brought my KERA BOKU mooks to be signed as well. Oni was surprised to see that I owned them. I had her sign a cover on one of them and a page on the other (for some reason she's not in volume 2 at all). When I flipped to the page Oni said, "Ah, I was so young back then." Then Sagara replied to her "Yeah you were lol." I thought it was funny because they don't seem old at all! Vivi and Ebi were intensely checking out my hat stack. I was able to get a picture with them, too. They even called me an honorary band member for the matching outfit, haha.
