Anime conventions and concerts are notorious for their unmistakable smell. They have shown that having thousands of fans packed into a confined space — with a mixture of body sweat and a variety of body odors — can be a recipe for an olfactory disaster. Many fans have taken to TikTok, Twitter, and Reddit to comment on the terrible odors they have encountered at these events, drawing comparisons to a rancid sewer and garbage mixed with wet dog.

Over the years, attendees have come up with guides and tips to survive the stench — from the obvious option of using more deodorant to suggesting people spread menthol-scented ointment under their noses.

A Japanese voice actress and singer named Rie Takahashi recently took it upon herself to gently remind her fans about basic live concert etiquette. The 29-year-old is best known for voicing Megumin in popular anime film adaptation "KonoSuba" and the title character Hu Tao in the viral role-playing game Genshin Impact.

On February 25, Takahashi took to Twitter — where she has close to 1 million followers — to share a detailed, hand-drawn guide for anyone attending her first live concert, which took place on February 26. Among her tips are suggestions like bringing a power bank and carrying a small bag to keep your valuables safe. Her tweet has gotten 8,800 likes and more than 2,600 retweets, as of March 6.

And notably, Takahashi also included tips for dealing with body odor.
