Hub of Creators at AFA16

Ah the doujinshi scene, full of custom contents that fulfil the imaginations and dreams of many other avid fans, be it on the subject of lewdness, cuteness, yuri, yaoi, etc…

The Creators Hub is where these like-minded individuals converged, eagerly seeking their desires from the various craftsmen and artists from all over the region… 

Posters, art books, button badges, dakimakura covers, postcards, key chains, mini standees, T-shirts, plushies, wall scrolls, tapestries… 

Everything that came in mind, you can find them here…

Several major ACG series see a boom in popularity for the past year, thus a majority of the booths have for sale many stuff based upon similar characters of the said series.

Most notable are: Fate series, Yuri On Ice, Overwatch, Pokémon…

I was surprised to find many Tama-chan stuff at the Creators Hub this year. 

The increase of her fame is perhaps due to the recent release of Fate/Extella as well her original popularity from Fate/Extra as well as Fate/Grand Order…

Many thanks to a generous comrade booth owner, I was able to leave Tama-chan in their care while I was busy roaming around the halls.

Carrying her all day long is actually quite a chore and straining to my arms.

All doll owners will know my pain… ^^;
