<Comments from the TGS2023 Official Supporter Risa Unai>
I have been visiting TGS almost every year, so I feel truly honored to have been named its Official Supporter. When I first heard the news, I screamed loudly for joy, as if I were breaking the eardrums of the people around me. This is the best gift I have received this year. I am going to explore every corner of the venue and find out what types of new games are there. I am also passionate about trying new games and sharing my excitement with as many people as possible.
