Japan's Otaku Konkatsu -- a matchmaking event for 'geeks' -- decided to insert a little twist to the conventional event by having all their participants adorn a mask, creating a comfortable masked matchmaking event. It's embarrassing for people to attend matchmaking events in general, which is why the addition of the mask was highly welcomed in Kuki City, Saitama where the event was held.

As participants entered the masked matchmaking event, they were immediately alleviated from the initial fear and pressure, especially from presumptuous judgment from other guests. An added bonus for the characters behind the masks are that they did not have to disclose their names at the event, keeping their identities a secret until they found the right match.
