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… 

Once again, AFAMY is nowhere to be found this year, ever since it only début a couple of years ago in AFAMY12. XDc


Still no words on line-ups of attending artistes and seiyuu…

Very much lookin’ forward to it! See you all later the year!

  1. Is it related to the MH370 incident?

    I heard that took quite the toll on the malaysian tourism board.
    But that’s just what i heard, i never actually looked into it.

    • Rumours has it that it was due to an abundance of bootlegged sales during the first AFAMY and probably the related parties ignored the official’s warnings…

      Or maybe the event wasn’t up to par in SOZO’s eyes two years ago and they decided it’s not worth their time?

      Just bits I heard here and there tho so I couldn’t really say they are accurate.

      • wait what? bootlegged sales?

        did some bad seed smuggle those things into afa? that’s pretty much a “douchebag move” if you ask me.

        we don’t have that many bootleg items here though, since we have official distributors for almost every maker out there in ID. People tend to pick the original things, since we have branches if something happens (defects, issues, etc. etc.)

        Last time i checked, they were:
        Bandai and Tamashii Nations, Hot Toys, Sentinel, Action Toys, Good Smile Company, Arcadia, Art Storm, Acid Rain, ThreeA, and from what i heard Kotobukiya, Orchid Seed, Takara TOMY are planning to open an official branch here too.
