Many people looks at Isogaisa as the happening of the year. To others its first time they discover the Isogaisa energy. Therefore some will be quiet, some full of energy and someone will talk a lot. The arrangement staff can also act a little bit stressed. That is Isogaisa! You can compare it with energy discharge. Use your time to listen, and be lenient. Now its time to get friends for you life, instead of talk about people with strange behavior.
