Site Expansion of AFA14

It’s been moons since any major announcement for the greatest event of the year, Anime Festival Asia 2014, which will be held on the island nation of the Lion City.


With the passing of Anime Festival Asia Indonesia 2014 last week, looks like the officials finally decided to release some info for the upcoming end-of-year event.


Official Announcement of AFA14

After a couple of wild but well-placed speculations, words of god SOZO finally confirmed our suspicion all along…


During Anime Japan 2014 earlier today, Anime Festival Asia panel has revealed a couple of set of dates: 15, 16, 17 August for AFAID14 in Jakarta Convention Centre and 5, 6, 7 December for AFA14 in Singapore Suntec Convention Centre… 


Incoming Announcement of AFA14

Brace yourselves…


AFA14 is coming…

Another Rumour of AFA14

Outta no where, another set of dates were spotted on a random online site, thanks to diligent eyes of a certain comrade.


Denouncing the earlier speculation of a possible a 5-day event, looks like AFA14 will only run on its usual 3-day period. 

Goodness gracious my poor feet will be saved… XDc


The Unexpected Reveal of AFA14

Barely a couple of weeks after the Brand New Year and only a little more than a month since AFA13,  I’ve been alerted by a keen-eyed comrade Photog of news on a certain event…


Well that was fast~! 0w0


Acquisitions of AFA13

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


Cultural Night After AFA13

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.


Cosplays of AFA13

As promised previously, the very post you’ve been waiting for from Anime Festival Asia 2013: costume plays!


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


Hub of Creations of AFA13

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


More Halls of AFA13

Continuing from the last post on them halls and displays, let’s have a look at the rest of them cool stuffs happened during Anime Festival Asia 2013


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


The Halls of AFA13

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!
