A tribute to Game Center CX, my favourite Japanese TV show. There are several in-jokes within the image.
When the show went to Los Angeles to hold a fan event there, although I couldn’t go, I got an acquaintance to print this as a poster and give it to Arino (the host) and the staff. The moment Arino received the poster was immortalized when the clip was featured in the “Game Center CX in U.S.A.” episode.
The show’s producer liked my image so much that they bought the rights to the image. It has since been used for the cover of the “Game Center CX in U.S.A.” DVD, published in a Game Center CX guide book, and used on merchandise such as a hoodie and phone case.
