The Penangites are anxious when no news whatsoever on Penang Anime Matsuri ever since the beginning of the year (Especially when PAM is not mentioned during AFA’s announcement unlike last year’s), but know they can finally rest assured and be excited with much anticipation…
Once again, Penang Anime Matsuri will be held on my island, at the Spice Arena, and falls on the 7th and 8th of July this year.
From the official Facebook page:

I’ve attended Penang Anime Matsuri 2017 Summer Wonderland last weekend. First and foremost sorry for the lateness in my photo post-processing for the past few days, for those looking forward (And expressed interests in…) to my event photos… I’ve finally managed to upload them all onto my Flickr yesterday. ^_^
It’s an extremely exhausting experience, what with my now slowly decaying physiques and years, I find myself no longer as enthusiastic as earlier years, even though the new site is a double thumbs-up for me.
It’s not easy being a Wizard. XDc
The new site at Spice Arena, a former mini stadium now redecorated for events, is much more comfortable when compared to past PAMs at Dewan Sri Pinang.
The enclosed space allows better air-conditioning (You could actually feel the chill in your bones even if the hall is packed with visitors, unlike past venue’s scorching hotness) as well as a more convention-like appeal ala Anime Festival Asia in Singapore (Co-Organised by the same team behind AFA too if you don’t know www).
Just one more sleep away from Penang Anime Matsuri 2017! Finally~!
I am ready. Tama-chan is ready as well. Are you?
Do pay Tama-chan a visit, she’ll be roaming around the halls distributing her new Class Cards, occasionally stopping by booths to mingle with others… ^_~
See you all there!
Yesterday, the announcement of various guests of Penang Anime Matsuri 2017 surely have roused the attention of various fans all over the region.
Ticketing and other stuff have yet to be decided, but do follow the official site for more updates.
1st up, the guest artistes of I Love Anisong x AniBeats concert~!
