After experiencing the much smaller-in-scale ACG event earlier this year appropriately named Comic Fiesta Mini on my island, my body is lady for one of the largest (Of the region), full-fledged gathering of Anime, Manga and Games in one place.
Hitching a ride along with members of Los Gospel Cosplay Club, this will be my first time paying a visit to this decade old otaku tradition of my country. :3c
After the discovery of this foxy apparel, I’ve been in dilemma for days at her acquisition.
Yet this foxy miko managed to melt down my will (As always), beckoning my crying wallet-kun to its limit. =w=
Unfortunately due to EG-Tops policy on Amazon, they won’t ship outside Japan, forcing me to rely once again my trusted proxy service Tenso.com…
Which means an extra couple of thousand yen of further spending just to get her to my den. T^T
I kinda failed as Tama-chan’s ご主人様 for not noticing this almost half a year ago… orz
Unlike most of the so-called Full Graphic/Print T-Shirts similarly priced from other companies (Which features only a single side of fully printed T-Shirt), this release had both of its sides covered with the foxiness of a certain magical kitsune! w
Gunpla Expo World Tour Japan 2013 is now on-going (21st – 24th of November) and with it comes the news on various upcoming and future projects on them Gunpla. w
While there are many prototypes and announcements being made, my eyes are currently fixed upon the new 2014 lines of Master Grade kits of the latest series Gundam Build Fighters’ gunpla form.^_~
It’s no surprise the protag’s main gunpla units, the Build Strike Gundam and Build Gundam Mk II, received an MG kit since their base body MG Strike Gundam and MG Gundam Mk II already have a Version 2.0 mould.
You don’t expect me to go on for an Anime Festival Asia 2013 trip without any loot of my own, do you? w
Unlike earlier years, most of my acquisition this time around are mostly apparel and merchandise, along with a single tiny figure. :P
Got three T-Shirts in order to expand my library of anime related wardrobe, incidentally all of them are white in base. w
Two of them are from the doujin circle Tomodachi T-Shirts (As per the name of their circle, specialised in anime T-Shirts) while another one is from Culture Japan Booth. w
Anime Festival Asia 2013 maybe over, but there’s still a social assembly left to attend on the day after… the usual Post AFA gathering of Culture Japan Night.
Held at the Kallang Theatre near the Stadium MRT station identical to last year, it was more of a Culture Japan Noon as the event started at roughly 1500 hours until 2000 hours of the day.
Day 1 saw little of them cosplayers, but on Day 2 and 3 a throng of them came and occupied them halls setting up small bubbles of photog space all over the place. w
Breaking away from the usual commercial booths and display, there’s an area within Anime Festival Asia 2013 dedicated towards the talents and fandom of them anime and manga, resulting in the doujinshi infested Creators Hub.
Official merchandise alone won’t satiate most otaku’s appetite, thus the third parties will see through that and fill in the emptiness. w
One of the featured anime in the event is Love Live! School Idol Project, an anime similar to Idolm@ster.
For the uninitiated, the premise of the series is about nine girls trying to prevent the closure of their beloved school by becoming an amateur idol group amongst many competing rival groups, striving to promote their own school, in order to increase the student applications to the said school. w
Last weekend, I’ve made a trip towards Suntec Convention Centre to pay a visit to the annual Anime Festival Asia 2013!
It’s only been a year since my last visit to the place, but it seems that the usual route (From the City Hall MRT station to Suntec) has taken a new identity, underwent renovations while I am stuck on my island for the year.
Managed to briefly lost myself in the shopping mall labyrinths, good thing I’ve already researched the route the day before.
Oh well off to AFA we go!
Waking up very early in the morning excited (Thus having only a total of 5 hours sleep time), I’m going on
an adventure a journey to the city of the fishy lion for my annual pilgrimage to Anime Festival Asia 2013!
Barely even dawn, I’ve already hitched a ride towards my island’s only airstrip, to board the crimson steel bird that will take me towards the skies.
In a few more days, I’ll catch a flight down south for the annual pilgrimage.
Of course Tama-chan will accompany me in my trip, she’ll bring along her new outfit just in time for the event too.
T-minus 5 days left until I board the iron bird to the south, heading to wards my annual pilgrimage destination for Anime Festival Asia 2013!
With the date of the event coming closer and closer in a few sleeps, the official finally released the floor plan, highlighting various exhibitors and their relative position within the halls of Suntec.
Continuing from the initial look at the Transformers Masterpiece MP-13 Soundwave, this time let’s have a look at its signature Cassetticon minion, Condor aka Laserbeak…
In comparison here are Condor in its Cassette mode, sized at about 1/2 of the device it is based upon and closely resembles that of the Micro Cassette.
Transformers. More than meets the eyes. Transformers. Robots in Disguise.
Ever since the 80′s, kids and adults alike have been awed by the notion of your everyday household items and belongings that can convert into robot and back. Animated series and movies are watched, source materials are gathered, toys and figures are collected, it’s been a dream for all those fascinated by the Transformers.
Finally got this gem earlier this month after missing the 1st release earlier this year due to indecisiveness, I’ve immediately placed a pre-order the moment a 2nd release was announced some Moons back.
Good thing I’ve decided against getting this Transformers Masterpiece on auction sites and evilBay as immoral scalpers had inflated the value of the 1st release. Even checking the price now reveals that most of the listed still on the more expensive side, save for a few that sells at its original base…
Looks like them AFA13 officials are getting greedy… XDc
Yet another sudden reveal via their Book of Faces, there will be another trio of special guests to make their appearance during this year’s AFA…
It’s been ages since I last touch a Gunpla. It was about two years ago to be exact, when I last build my own mecha model kits—oh wait I built a Kotobukiya’s Metal Gear Ray (Of Metal Gear Solid fame) earlier this year which I never get around to do a proper photo shoot… orz
Anyway, a new upcoming Gundam anime series will be on air very, very soon. Gundam Build Fighters is an expansion to the OVA Gunpla Builders Beginning G from years ago, which is a cross between the Plamo hobby and Angelic Layer. ^_~
Of course Bandai spares no time to quickly convert them mecha design into Gunpla form. Amongst the many unique and incredible customs from the show, one of them in particular caught my eyes.
Not content with just more cosplayer guests, another special person will be making his appearance as special stage guest.
In only a week after the exciting announcement of many heavy-weight artistes and guest of the anime/manga industry, the time has come for the officials to release the ticketing info.
Since this year’s AFA will span across 3 full days instead of the usual 2-day-event of previous years, visitors will have to purchase an extra tix this time. :/
Revealed during the 1st day of AFAID’s Anisong Concert live, a full line-up of various guest for AFA13 has finally been announced!
Spanning over 3 nites of awesome line-ups of various artistes, AFA regular May’n as well as returning artistes T.M. Revolution and LiSA will once again grace the stage. Time to get more and more excited, comrades!
After many Moons of the lack of information on the event itself, an announcement will be teased on AFAID in Indonesia (6th of September) during the 1st day of its Anisong Concert live!
AFA’s official website will also be launched at 11.59 pm on the same day. :3c
Time to get excited, comrades!
