The (No Longer) Secrets of AFA13

Up until now, the AFA13 official site lacks them latest updates when they are announcing newer additions towards the event itself via their Book of Faces


That’s no longer the case as the official site has finally been updated along with the latest stuffs…

Besides Valvrave the Liberator, a couple of anime series has been selected as the featured anime of the event. From the official site:



PSYCHO-PASS brings you an all-star team helmed by Executive Director Katsuyuki Motohiro, whose passion for realism in police institutions we saw in the Bayside Shakedown series. Gen Urobuchi, the man who gave us Puella Magi Madoka☆Magica and so many other rich, intricate sci-fi worlds, penned the original story concept and screenplays, and popular manga artist Akira Amano created character designs that are all the more attractive for their sharp contrast with the gritty feel of the story and setting. And that’s not all: the series is directed by rising star Naoyoshi Shiotani, the internationally acclaimed director of Blood-C: The Last Dark, winner of the L’Écran Fantastique Prize at the 16th Fantasia Film Festival. Together they weave a story set within the police organization of an all-too-near future, animated by Production I.G—the team behind such classics of the sci-fi police genre as Patlabor 2 – The Movie and Ghost in the Shell.

Synopsis: In the future, even just thinking about a crime is enough to make you guilty – and justice is dispensed from the barrel of a gun. Detectives work in teams made up of Enforcers and Inspectors. Enforcers take out the bad guys, and Inspectors make sure their partners don’t cross the fine line between good and evil. The great equalizer in the war against thugs is the Dominator, a futuristic weapon that can read minds and assess the probability that a citizen will turn criminal. There are no trials. Only Enforcers, Inspectors, and the Dominator. Commit a crime in your mind – and the Dominator will make sure you pay the ultimate price.

Even as they’re confronted with the truth about where justice lies, each member of the Public Safety Bureau’s Criminal Investigation Division Unit 1 has no choice but to carry out the mission, however they may personally feel. But what is the true justice they reach for in the end??

It would appear that Urobuchi Gen will attend this panel, along with the anime’s director Shiotani Naoyoshi and chief producer Yamamoto Kouji.

Love Live!


Synopsis: Honoka Kosaka loves going to school. Thus, it comes as a shock to her that her school is being closed down after she graduates due to lack of new students applying to the school. Drawing inspiration off a School Idol Group from another school, she decides to start one up herself, in order to make her school well-known to the public, and thus attracting more students and saving her school from closure. She ropes in her closest friends and people around her to make the best idol unit possible. Will she succeed in protecting her precious high school life? Or is it just an outrageous plan that is doomed to fail? Find out through the experiences of the 9 girls that make up μ’s in Love Live!!

As reported some time earlier, the seiyuu of μ’s: Kousaka Honoka (Nitta Emi), Sonoda Umi (Mimori Suzuko) and Yazawa Niko (Tokui Sora) from the anime will grace the panel itself. Incidentally the 3 of them will appear in Milky Holmes panel as well. XDc

Besides the above featured anime, the previously announced secret guests have now finally been updated with their own info pages, including Urobuchi Gen, Ying Tze, Angie and more…

Word is that Kaname, the AFA cosplaying ambassador, will once again visit the event!
