Procurement: AFA12の勝利品

Lots, booties, treasures! What event ends without any wallet-killing? XDc

Like many AFA before it, AFA12 too drained my in-store credits to its core… orz

Ever since I’ve got myself the Moekana cards back during AFAMY12, I’ve wanted to get one of those deck holders every Card Battlers been carrying around… Luckily a certain Uncle got them in stock at discounted price at his Kopitiam in the halls!

Got a couple of them, one for the Moekana and the other for holding the meishi I’ve collected… XDc

The holders come with a trio of extra Moekana card too along with a lovely paper bag!


Post AFA Syndrome: Culture Japan Night

After an incredible experience of merchandise temptation, lovely daughters and mouth-dropping cosplays aside, AFA12 has officially ended…

Well at least for most of them public. Enthusiastic comrades will not let the joy die down so easily… XDc


Metamorphosis: The Cosplays of AFA12

After the report on the exhibits and the gathering of lovely daughters of AFA12, it’s time to move on the next element of any ACG events: the incredible costumes of Cosplayers!

Oh wait that’s not a cosplay but an itansha!

But then again taking 50 steps backwards it’s technically a motorcycle cosplaying so it counts! XDc


AFA12の娘達: 藤原雪野の冒険と友達!!

In memories of a certain Dollfie Dream… Not! XDc

Many thanks to Yukino-chan’s papa, Tama-chan was invited to one of the biggest gathering of all her kind she’d ever experienced.


Debriefing: The Exhibits of AFA12

Grander in ambition with moar hall spaces, AFA12 is no doubt the biggest event yet over the South East Asia, rivaling the like of Anime Expo of the Western countries in scale!

Once again, giants of the ACG industry along with various merchants come together to pour in their resources in making this event a success!


The Preview of AFA12

The journey to the South has begun! AFA12 here I come!

What a great start for a day light’s breaker bidding me farewell as I’m heading towards my local airstrip to catch a ride upon the steel bird… 


Packing up for AFA12

This weekend, I’ll once again travel down South for my annual pilgrimage to the island of the Fishy Lion for AFA12!!

Tama-chan was so restless for the past few days hopping around the room in excitement while I’m busy packing up for our trip. XDc


Strategic Planning of AFA12

T-minus 10 days left until the big day, the floor plan of the exhibition hall has finally been revealed!

Guiding an Event of AFA12

The shroud on the main stage events for the upcoming AFA12 has finally been shed…

As per AFA tradition, there will once again be a seiyuu special stage this time featuring Sphere members Tomatsu Haruka, Takagaki Ayahi, Toyosaki Aki and Kotobuki Minako!

Incidentally it is the second time Toyosaki Aki and Kotobuki Minako visited an AFA event, their first being during AFA09 as K-On! casts! XDc


Cinematic Contract of AFA12

It’s no surprise that the Puella Magi Madoka Magica franchise has earned its special place amongst the otaku community for the past two years, spawning many by-products like figures, manga and a couple of recap movies of the TV series currently screening all over Japan.

There’s also a hint that a second season is in the works after the 3rd original movie!

Being part of the featured anime in AFA12, guess what will grace the halls of the event itself?


A Gathering of Dreamy Dollfies at AFA12

According to local comrades, this means gigantic space more than twice that of Suntec’s for the event itself!!! Imagine the possibilities of what can be done there!
