Kadokawa Games, Grasshopper Manufacture's publishing partner in Japan, has announced that the ever so divisive Lollipop Chainsaw has reached the 100,000 mark in terms of domestic shipments. Suda 51's game never tend to do very well, so this is exciting news even if you think the game is offensive for reasons.
In honor of that achievement Kadoakawa will be hosting an event called the "Lollipop Chainsaw Summer Appreciation Festival." Taking place at the publisher's Tokyo offices, Kadokawa is inviting 200 members of the general public to participate in the festivities and rub elbows with the likes of Goichi Suda and Jessica Nigri.
If you understand the moonspeak, are over 18 and would like to attend you can head over to their official site to participate in the lottery. Should you not meet those requirements, might I suggest following my lead and attacking the game a second time around for a higher score. Like any fine piece of entertainment, I always seem to appreciate Grasshopper's work more the second time around.
