The Day Before The Festival

The calm before the storm, otherwise refer to as the setup day, is when the organisers and participants of the Anime Festival Asia busy setting up their booths and displays.

Honoured to be invited to a media preview at one of the conference room in Suntec Convention Centre, I paid the site a visit and had a glimpse of the progress as well as getting some early preview of the attractions that will be available to the public tomorrow.

Welcome to youkoso C3AFA! Here lies the entrance to the exhibition halls!

I was not able to enter the grounds due to the setup progress, but I’ll be able to get early access tomorrow! Stay tuned to more photos for the coming days!

As always, expect loads of visitors and queues tomorrow at the ticketing booths just one floor below the halls!

Some panels detailing the schedule for the main and Akiba stage, as well as the appearances of the guests for all days. You can get these details on the pamphlet that will be given to you when you buy your entry ticket.

Elsewhere within one of the conference rooms, a media preview was held. Making a special appearance are three members of Nogizaka46: Akimoto Manatsu, Ikuta Erika and Matsumura Sayuri.

They will be performing during the event alongside the rest of the attending members.

While most of the preview are just recaps of the info released bit by bit weeks back, one notable exception is the 1/1 scaled figure of Kato Megumi from Saekano.

While we do know she’ll be displayed at the hall, looks like she’ll be available for purchase on site as well!

You can take her home for a mere 2 million yen… XDc

Ending the preview is a group photo of all the big guns of the event: Mr. Miyano Haruhiko (CEO of Amuse Entertainment Singapore), Mr. Shawn Chin (C3 AFA Organiser, and SOZO’s Founder and Managing Director), Ferlyn Yoshimi (Guest Emcee), Beverly (Avex artiste and singer), Mr. Takahashi Shunta (President of Avex Asia), Ms. Tsuchiya Sach (Senior Vice President of Zepp Live) and Mr. Tetsuo Tomizawa (Manager of the Hobby Department from Bandai Namco Asia).
