Revealing AFA the 4th
After many moons of teasing with a placeholder, the main site of Anime Festival Asia finally updated with juicy details of contents and features that will grace one of the more successful event of this region…
I can’t stop the heavy beating of my doki doki heart even as I read and write this particular post… >w<
I’m really lookin’ forward to this trip to the Land of the Water Sprouting Fishy Raion alongside my lovely Servant, which happens in the 11th Day of the 11th Moon this end of Earth Cycle, meaning it’s only about a Moon’s away…! :3c
This 4th annual event in Singapore will once again brings us many Anime and Japanese popular culture to the venue, with many Experience Zones that offers countless fun for Animanga fans around the region, youres truly included of course… XDc
I ♥ Anisong and Akiba Town makes a return with more artists and merchandises for you heavy spenders, with many popular figures like Mizuki Ichirou, FLOW, Mizuki, Kalafina, May’n, LiSA to offer you a wonderful concert or sorts.
Due to popular demand, Moe Moe Kyun Cafe will also make a comeback this Earth Cycle, ready to welcome you with loads of cute meido waitresses and introducing a new Artelier Royale that features butler waiters!
The finalists of the Regional Cosplay Championship will once again duke it out on stage during this event~! >w<
Seiyuu talks and guests on anime production from various popular series like Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi ha Mada Shiranai and Fate/Zero will also make their appearances for the fans~! W00t!
Just like 4 of 5 seiyuu of K-On! during AFA09 and Hanazawa Kana furing AFAX, special guests like fame Cosplayer, Seiyuu and others will also meet their fans during the 3-day event, including Kaname, Danny Choo and Saito Chiwa!
There are other related guests too like: Go Nakanishi, producer for Negima!? and Inukami; Iwakami Atsuhiro, the acclaimed producer of Puella Magi Madoka Magica and the upcoming Fate/Zero; Masayoshi Tanaka, the chara designer for Toradora! and AnoHana!
Out of the many juicy goodies news available, a trio of them attracted my attention the most…
1st of all is the appearance of Saito Chiwa as a guest of AFA… The veteran seiyuu is instrumental to many popular anime series, ranging from Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Strike Witches, Bakemonogatari, Gundam 00 and Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS to name a few… :3c
Hopefully I will be able to get a hold of a signature from her this time around (I was so close at getting a signature from HanaKana last Earth Cycle! >,<)…
Next up is the screening of Gundam Unicorn Episode 04! It’s been Moons since the last 3 episodes and I’m really eager to see how our young hero overcome the pseudo Red Comet… It looks like in this episode he’ll be up against Neo Zeon’s Lalah look-alike, probably piloting a Mobile Armour similar to Emmeth… ^_~
Lastly, it seems Anisong Vacaloid regular Hatsune Miku will finally grace the stage in full holographic 3D unlike the disappointment during the past two Earth Cycles…
But for a SGD 48 standing pass for only one night, I’m still in dilemma whether to join the concert or just get Tama-chan more outfits… ^^; But it is said to be of Sapporo quality, which means real projection of Miku herself! D: Gaaaarrrgghhhhh!!!! orz
See you there soon, let’s go!
