I’ve been a fan of Game Center CX for years. So when Arino-Kacho and the crew held an event in Los Angeles this week for a special episode (details yet to be announced) that’s going to air in October, to make up for not being able to go, I decided to finally do a Game Center CX fanart like I’ve been meaning to do for ages. I drew Arino riding on the back of a Hang-On bike with cool guy Cameraman Abe at the handles (a reference to two separate occasions on the show), hapless former AD Inoue chasing them on foot. The pic also has some reference to the show. I then got an LA fan called Jetpack Postman to print out a nice poster-sized print of it to give to Arino and the rest of the GCCX staff.
Here’s a video of the moment he receives it (4:05 mark). Above are some screencaps. My favourite reaction was Abe’s.
Producer/Narrator Kan reportedly was “very protective” of it. Now I wish I had put him and the other show regulars in the pic too but I had no idea who would come on the trip. Arino, Abe and Inoue are my favourites.
This definitely made up for not being able to make it to the event. I can’t wait to see this episode, and I hope my art shows up on there!
