Akiba Stage

The stage where most of the special appearances and performances not related to anime industry big names occur.

Most of the time the schedule here clashes with the one at the main stage so you have to choose one over the other as you can’t possibly attend both ends at the same time, not unless you have the power/ability to clone yourself. w

As for me, I prioritise the main stage so I can meet the seiyuu in the flesh. w Regret nothing as I can meet the small and petite Kurosawa Tomoyo and the ever lovely Itou Kanae… <3

Bandai x Banpresto

Pretty much the primary exhibitor of AFA for many years, Bandai showcased their usual selections of Gunpla and other figures.

On the spot light this year is the P-Bandai limited Gunpla, the shiny golden coating bling-bling-ness of PG 1/60 RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 06 Phenex.

Banpresto on the other hand have a lot of kuji stuff going around. All those lovely Pikachus in costumes as well as the many variations of Kizunamonogatari!Shinobu figures!

Good Smile Company

One of the biggest contributor to the event, GSC’s booth is filled with many,many displays of Figma, Nendo and scaled figures.

Sadly no samples of Nendo Tamamo no Mae or Figma Mumei in sight, even though they were displayed in another event in at the very same time frame in Japan…
