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
Once again, Danny Choo-san of Culture:Japan fame will organise a special after AFA gathering for like-minded comrades to interact and have fun with one another, just like how Tama-chan had fun during last year‘s AKB48 night and earlier mid year‘s Pavilion gathering… ^~^
Held in the Orchid Room of Kallang Theatre, not bad a choice for a venue this time as earlier CJNs are way too crowded at time…:3c
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
A brief update on the upcoming AFA12!
Less than a Moon until the big day itself and my annual trip to the South! XDc
The concert will be divided into 3 separate mini concerts consisting of different line-up of artistes for different days~!
Announced during the recently concluded Anime Festival Asia Indonesia (AFAID), aside from FLOW, fripSide, May’n, Sea☆A, Sphere and T.M. Revolution and Babymetal, m.o.v.e., LiSA and Kuribayashi Minami will also be included!! Hardcore fans should now about them!
However it seems the official site have yet to update its content to reflect this announcement…
Stay tuned for more info and news!
FLOW, fripSide, May’n, Sea☆A, Sphere and T.M. Revolution aside, Babymetal will lend their voice to turn up the heat that is the excitement of one of the most anticipated anime/manga/games event of the year~!
Visit the official site for more info and news! See you later the year! XDc
Let’s have a look at what to expect during my 4th pilgrimage to the land of the Fishy Lion! XDc
The annual event will be set on a new site this year at Halls 7 and 8 of Singapore EXPO Convention and Exhibition Centre on the 9th, 10th and 11th of the 11th Moon…
Stay tuned for more news by next week!
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!
Thank to the heads-up from the Cultur
al Ministe r of Japan just a few moments earlier, I am now made aware of the official announcement of this year’s most anticipated otaku event… >w<
It’s more like a teaser tho…
The only thing made known to us is the confirmation of the date of which they’ll be held on… Waidaminute “they”?
Good thing Tama-chan nursed me back to health as t’was quite a difficult period over the past week due to extreme loads of works from RL job (Even had to take a medical leave day off to cool my circuits >,<) and some minor others…
Cospa’s mine, a full print of Tenshi from Angel Beats! in deep blue colour… Wore this immediately on Culture Japan Night a couple of days later… XDc The K-On! ones belong to my best friend Donny Choo as souvenirs, as he can’t make it this year to the event… He accompanied me last year as my bodyguard… XDc
Held on the day after the end of AFA11, Danny Choo invites all comrades together to enjoy, network or mingle with one another…
Also known to most as CGM (Consumer Generated Media) Night or even AFA Day 04, Culture Japan Night is a gathering or sorts organised by Danny Choo for all comrades to interact with one another, exchanging contacts and ideas or even forming absolute alliances… XDc
The gathering starts on 3 in the evening and lasts until 2100 hours, at the AKB48 Café…
Last Anime Festival Asia 2010, Kareshi Kanojyo no Mise (A popular local hobby store specialises in anime merchandise and gifts) loaned a part of their display booth to visiting Musume-tachi, drawing the attention of curious crowd…
Since Tama-chan arrival, Tama-chan has been eager to join the rest of them musume-tachi on display this time around in AFA11, but the plan was backfired when rumours of KKnM no longer sponsoring a DD booth this year surfaced earlier this Earth Cycle…
Just as Tama-chan was about to give up, Goshujin-sama’s comrade (an Imperial InnovaDDo) shone a blinding light of hope upon the withered shippo of Tama-chan: The DD Display Booth is a go!
Pouring all my attention focusing upon the DD Display Booth, I wasn’t able to properly cover this year’s wonderful cosplays, which includes the crowded halls outside the Festival area… >,<
Nevertheless, I managed to grab some shots of those within the Exhibition Halls, many of them are made of quality cosers… :3c
