Standing by the hill-side gazing over the Cool Culture of Otakuism!


Them Booty of AFAMY12

A couple of weeks have passed since AFAMY12, I have yet to categorise my acquisitions from then due to so many happening in the period: Post AFA Syndrome aka minor fever x failure to readjust, slight depression, end of vacation leaves, social problems at work, laziness, etc. just to name a few…

Finally put aside all those 3rd world problems and gathered enough strength to properly unveil my loots (Still prefer the term acquisitions but otaku comrades have exclusively “trademarked” the term all around the globe referring to their purchases… ^^;)…

Now would you look at them booty, yohoho arrrrr matey! XDc



The Day After AFAMY12

Set on the last floor just across the Tokyo Street district of Pavilion, Danny-san organised the Culture:Japan Night after the end of AFAMY12

The Japanese Restaurant just in front of the venue, Tonkatsu, provided us with bottomless green tea beverages and a timed sushi buffet or sort during the course of the night…


The Layers of AFAMY12

Cosplay is an integral part of an ACG event, AFAMY12 being no exception. Unlike the failure of meself that was AFA11, I was lucky to have caught many of them raburi raburi and incredible cosplaying comrades into my lens this time around, framing them into digital piccies… XDc 

Unlike the Layers in Singapore who were mostly gathered just outside the main hall of their AFA counterpart, most of the Layers here at AFAMY12 were found within the confines of the exhibition hall, allowing me to not-so-discreetly hunt them all around the place without having to leave the comfort (?) of my post

Featured above, this raburi raburi Misaka Mikoto of To Aru Kagaku no Railgun fame is actually an employee under the KKnM x Little Akiba collab booth! The kawaii part is when I asked her to find a Misaka Mikoto Nenpuchi her booth’s selling, she mistook Musujime Awaki as one… ^o^;;;

Dojikko Mikoto is dojikko desu wa~! XDc


The Dreamy Dollfies of AFAMY12

Albeit still slight in the growth of the community, Volks Dollfie Dream 1/3 dolls see constant increase of popularity over the past few years, a straight evidence from during AFAX when KKnM was kind enough to sponsor a display booth welcoming visiting musume of InnovaDDo to join in…

In AFA11, the musume-tachi saw a much bigger exposure with several InnovaDDo banded up to secure a booth from the organisers…

This was also the 1st début of Tama-chan in an ACG event! XDc


The Commencement of AFAMY12

After a very exhausting arrival the day before, the time has come for me to truly enjoy this trip down South!

In the wee hours of the still morning covered in not-so-silent darkness, along with my buddies we rode the LRT towards our target of the day. Unfortunately the direct route to PWTC is still down since yesternite, thus with reluctance we retrace the alternate route we used and backtracked to the site…

It’s only been about 0800 hours when we’ve reached PWTC and we’ve already saw a throng of comrades lining up to get their ticket for the day…

Seems like everyone’s out to get a piece of Anime Festival Asia Malaysia 2012 themselves… XDc
