Runner Up: Second Breakfast, Millennium Actress

Upon review of our event we have found that our previous Runner Up Team, Ikkima Let’s Go, used an undisclosed Special Effect during their performance which goes against our rules and was not granted the required Special Effects permissions. While it saddens us to disqualify a team, safety is our number one priority. For this reason, our Runner Up Team is now Team Second Breakfast. Teams disqualified are still welcome to reapply to future WCS USA Qualifiers unless otherwise notified.

If you have any questions regarding special effects intended for our Anime Expo and WCS Japan stages or any questions regarding the WCS Rules, please direct them to one of our points of contact:
