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.
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.
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.
Found a gigantic fluffy tentacles curling around the ticket counter as soon as I approached the destination during Day 2.
So much d’awww-ness tho… :3c
Last weekend on the 17th and 18th, on my island one of the larger ACG event of the country happened.
Thanks to the
machination cooperation between Danny-san and Penang Global Tourism, many comrades and I from all over the surrounding region and even from overseas were fully enjoying ourselves in the wake of like-minded individuals and one another.
As what I always did during any past ACG events I’ve attended, I’ve paid the 6th floor of SQCC a visit the night before the actual opening day, the site where Culture Japan was held, as an early reconnaissance along with inspection to find out how I will approach the site.
Not to mention since I’m to display my Servant at one of them booths, I need to make sure the amount of items I needed to bring beforehand. :3c
In exactly a week’s time, one of the most anticipated ACG event on my island since Comic Fiesta Mini last weekend will finally happen!
As the time draws near, the official site is busying itself with many, many updates detailing the upcoming contents that will make their appearance in the event itself.
Barely half a year since the last event, the 18th Wonderful Festival Summer once again was here to poison the minds of fellow figure collectors and otaku alike last Sunday!
Showcasing and announcing many of their upcoming releases and prototypes, it’s no wonder many respected makers strive to prove their worth by bombarding the event with loads and loads of eye-candies. w
At long last, with as little as a couple of Moons away from the big day, Danny-san finally unveil the details of Culture Japan Convention, which will be the major ACG event in Penang for the first time ever!
Today is the 9th of the 3rd Moon, also known as 39 Day aka Miku Day! wwwww
For the uninitiated, learn more about the Day of Hatsune Miku over here.
In celebration of this wonderful occasion of Vocaloid appreciation, let’s have a short look at the recently arrived Figma Miku variation… XDc
Falls on the same day, Day 1 of the Lunar New Year also marks the day when major and amateur figure creators from all over Japan gathered in one large specialised event to show cast all their latest and upcoming releases…
The 17th annual Wonderful Hobby Life For You!! aka the Wonder Festival 2012 Winter bares its fangs poisoning would-be collectors and comrades alike!
Hatsune Miku has enjoyed much popularity over the years ever since her début as a virtual idol, taking up many positions such as being an official race queen for Good Smile Racing for the past few years.
While GSR has offered the public a chance to sponsor their favourite virtual idol in the GT races, it was only available to the Japanese for the past yesteryear.
Sponsors are usually given an assortment of limited Racing Miku merchandise for the year, especially the much sought after Figma and Nendoroid versions of the Racing Miku besides the usual straps, stickers, personal sponsorship cards and other stuffs…
Spotted at Good Smile Company’s booth during AFAMY12, Racing Miku version 2012′s elegant futuristic design caught my eyes, grabbing my heart with her almost impish grin… And I told myself this: I definitely must get a Figma version of her!
T-minus 5 days left until the most exciting event in Malaysia this year (Besides Comic Fiesta)…!!
The stage events of AFAMY12 is finally revealed via a couple of teaser videos~ :3c
Expect rotsa new announcements of lovely Figma, Nendoroids and scaled figures at its own corner of display booths!!
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! !
Whenever Mikatan-san of GSC fame produced a preview buroggu entry of any Nendo and/or figures, it is guaranteed that the pre-order for that particular item will be upped the next day…
Guess who’s showing up on Mikatan’s newest entry? ^_~
Coming from the Land of the Rising Sun directly to your cosy residence…
…this little rori will surely take your breath away with her charming smile! ^~^
Do you have one of those urges to do little, boring things like pinching bubble wraps or grabbing a wagging shippo? XDc
Similar to last year’s, each of us top 200 finalists of GSC’s 13th Wonderful Hooby Life 4 You 5th PhotoCon gets a compilation booklet of all the entries to feast our eyes… 0w0
Fancy adopting a chibi little Magikano for your own, umm… usage? Want a SAN (Suddenly Acquired Nendoroid) by your door step?
“Look no further, just come and form a contract with me”, declares 9Bay-tan as it tries desperately hopping to reach the viewpoint of prospective Puella Magi in front of her…
Over these past few moons, many arrivals from separate sauce have finally reached my den… =3c
Nope, Miku-tan… They’re not yours… ^^;
