When Danny-san announced the news some weeks earlier, it was an incredible surprise to all of us Islanders that he’s going to hold a CJN on our island!
To be held in the St. Joseph’s Novitiate at the Gurney Paragon, Penang, the gathering will begin at a rather odd hour: 1300 – 1800 on a Saturday (Thus Culture Japan Noon instead of Culture Japan Night… XDc)… 0_0
For the uninitiated, St. Jo’s is a heritage building made anew via reconstruction, and is now a hub for community events with rotsa restaurants surrounding it…
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!
Well at least for most of them public. Enthusiastic comrades will not let the joy die down so easily… XDc
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
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.
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 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…
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
Time to plan your attack route, fellow comrades! XDc
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
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!
For the upcoming AFA12, the gorgeous musume-tachi of various InnovaDDoushi will once again grace the exhibition halls in display to curious and enthusiastic visitors!
On last count according to the organisers, there’ll be more than a hundred of confirmed attendance of them musume-tachi! 0_0

Starting today April the 10th until the 1st of next Moon, comrades will be able to cast votes upon their favourite Nendoroid, Figma and Scaled Figures ever released by GSC in the past for a possible re-run/re-release, and nominate various charas in consideration for future releases! !
With this comes a whole new level of excitement to the community, as well as my annual pilgrimage to the City of Fishy Lion itself~!
Breaking off from its traditional venue of Suntec, this year’s AFA will instead be held on the 9th, 10th and 11th of the 11th Moon at Halls 7 and 8 of Singapore EXPO Convention and Exhibition Centre…
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!
No further announcements on the website yet, but it is confirmed that AFA11 will span across 3 days from 11th to the 13th of the 11th Moon!
This time around Goshujin-sama won’t be forever alone… XDc
「Finally homu homu…」 Twisting the doorknob, I stepped into my den after a long exhausting meeting on a fine Saturday evening. 「Tadaim—」
「—a…?」 Something’s not quite right here…
My primary rig’s screen is on, with an anime episode playing… 0_0
Amongst the many goodies are Figma Roger Smith (The Big O), Nendo Seifuku Madoka (Puella Magi Madoka Magica), Figma Heavy Arms Aigis (Persona 3 Fes) and finally a 1/1 Kyuubey (QB/Kyuubei/KillBay; Puella Magi Madoka Magica) Soft Figure!
Just look at the size of that QB!!! D:
