Voltage-themed Collab Rooms, anyone?
This has got to be one of the things that I anticipated at the event, as it’s my first time to get a chance to stay at a themed room at the karaoke.
We aimed to reserved three rooms at JOYSOUND, and to my surprise, my friend had managed to get all the rooms we wanted, and even at the time we wanted. As Voltage’s games are very popular, I expected a bloodbath, and it did become a bloodbath of sorts as the reservations could only be done on the phone, and to say that she rang a number of times would be an understatement.
Nevertheless, we managed to get the rooms we wanted for the Saturday timeslots, namely:
- Ouji-sama no Propose/Ouji-sama no Propose Eternal Kiss-themed room (Be My Princess/Be My Princess 2)
- Kagami no Naka no Princess Love Palace (MiraPuri)
- Tenka Touitsu Koi no Ran Love Ballad (KoiRan/SLBP)
This is what the Ouji-sama collab room looked like, and we stayed here for two hours:
The Ouji-sama room was the most spacious of them all, as it could seat 14 people in total.
I’m guessing Voltage anticipated that a lot of people would reserve for this room as this is their most popular game, even after five years.
There were a total of 5 people in our group so it totally didn’t feel so cramped.
After our time was up, we then headed back to reception, got our queue number, and headed for the MiraPuri-themed room:
The MiraPuri room was a lot smaller than Ouji-sama’s, but it was a good thing that there were only three of us who joined in.
What’s nice about this room was that they allowed people to wear Luca, Faris, and Joseph’s coats, which sent a friend fangirling over it that she was pretty much hyper for half an hour. I couldn’t blame her at all as she loves the game so much.
I basically just took photos of Hawk and Vincent.
(Did I mention that I like Hawk and Vincent?
I LOVE HAWK AND VINCENT)
Probably the silliest thing we’ve ever done with Luca’s standee:
At midnight, we then exited the room, then headed for the final room where we will be staying at the whole night, for five hours.
This was the second biggest karaoke room among the collaboration rooms, and I did end up not sleeping at all. We did sing a lot of songs on the karaoke to keep us up, along with drinking the majority of the collab drinks.

This is our view from where we sat:
This is what the whole room looked like from the door:
When 5AM rolled in, all of us agreed to meet up again at 10AM or so, as we all wanted to freshen up. I, in particular, needed a nap and a shower to function for Day 2 of VolFes2019.
To wrap up Day 2 of VolFes2019 in the most Voltage way possible, we booked another collab room, but this time around, we chose the ‘Her Love In The Force’ (called ‘KouAn’ in Japan) themed room.
Personally, I’m not a huge fan of the game, though I did play Shinonome’s route.
Obviously, he is my favorite, so I took photos of him:
Bonus: we stumbled upon the Scandal In the Spotlight-themed room!
As expected, this room was more extra + they made sure that there was a mini-stage to accomodate the Kyohei standee.
Photos of the drinks:
(Please note that the photos below are both from my friend’s camera and mine; I kept forgetting to take a photo…)
My friend luckily got both Masamune and Kojuro, while I got Yukimura… a bit disappointed as I was hoping for an Ieyasu, but I guess you can’t have it all.
That about wraps up the karaoke experience.
I’ll be posting more photos and will be writing more details about VolFes2019!
