The winner of the regional qualifiers will be invited to the continental finals to determine the best Weiss Schwarz Meister of each continent.

A Bushiroad Spring Fest would be woefully incomplete without the usual doorgifts and participation prizes. This year we have a few different cards for you to collect, as well as an exclusive Bushiroad Spring Fest 2016 Weiss Schwarz deck case!

Players who take part in the main tournament will receive “SY/W08-E109 Looking for Brigade Members!”, featuring the upcoming “The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya” release! “5th Asashio-class Destroyer, Asagumo” will also be redeemable at the event for those with PR Coupons (more info on the Bushiroad PR Coupon Campaign here!)!
