Nippon Budokan Festival Night Show
The event started off with the performance of the song Tenipuri Fever with the voice actors of the five main schools, Seigaku, Higa, Hyotei Academy, Rikkai and Shitenhōji together with Konomi Takeshi. They were shortly joined by the voice actors of some high school members of the U-17 Camp in a small talk corner. The high school members then proceed to perform each of their character songs. The songs were performed in the order:
- Jujiro Oni (Daichi Endō) - Welcome to Hell
- Tonpei Hirari (Mondo Yamagishi) and Kōsuke Tenjin (Ryosuke Katoh) - Kamase Inu no Burūsu
- Yūdai Yamato (Masanori Ikeda) - Maboroshi yū Yumeutsutsu
- Nakagauchi Sotomichi (Takuto Dojoh) - Dare da! Ima Ore no Koto Ossan Tte Itta no wa
- Kanata Irie (Hiroki Aiba) - Kimi ni Tsuite Motto Shiritaina
- Kazuya Tokugawa (Daisuke Ono) - Survival Destiny
Following the U-17 Camp high school members' song numbers, the five main school performed new school songs. Prior to this event, the only team that has a song where all members are singing is Seigaku with Departures. The order of the school performances went like:
- Shitenhōji - Katte ni Shiten Fesuta
- Rikkai - Destination
- Higa - Higa Chanpuru
- Hyotei - Get Out the Way
- Seigaku - Tricolore
Konomi Takeshi also took the stage and sang one song before joining Teja Ore 300 to sing Brave Heart for the first time since the group's conception back in Tenipuri Festival 2011. The newly formed group MEGANE☆SEVEN also debuted their song Megane☆Seven during the event. On the other hand, Tenifesta veteran group Cap to Bin performed their song Tonde Mawatte Mata Raishuu in style similar to performances in The Prince of Tennis musical series, Tenimyu.
One highlight of the event was when all of the present voice actors performed a medley of character songs. They were joined by Norimasa Fujisawa who sang the opening theme of the New Prince of Tennis anime, Mirai no Bokura E.
The cast gathered again for the performance of the song Teniputte Yukou and the ending song of the New Prince of Tennis anime, Enjoy!. During the talk corner between the two songs, Konomi surprised everyone when he announced that the New Prince of Tennis will get OVA. The OVA will have the continuation of the New Prince of Tennis anime that first aired in 2012.
For the encore, the voice actors, now including the high school members, performed the song Tenipuri Fever again. Capping off the event, each team captain was asked to give messages while Ono Daisuke, Tokugawa's voice actor, represented the high school members.
