Tease of a Summer Paradise

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.

Announcement of AFA2018

Unveiled earlier today on their official Facebook page, the dates for this year’s Anime Festival Asia have been decided!


Celebrating their 10th anniversary since 2008, curiously only two of them have been confirmed: 3rd – 5th August at Jakarta and 30th November – 2nd December at Singapore…

Awaiting more info in the near future!

Yet Another Day At The Festival

Concluding my report on the pilgrimage to C3 Anime Festival Asia 2017 will be a look at the Creative Market A.K.A. the doujin zone, as well as the various cosplayers roaming around and within the halls…

A Day At The Festival

Took me a couple of days after returning from the land of the fishy lion before I managed to trim down the many photos I took from C3 Anime Festival Asia Singapore 2017…

As usual due to my photo-machine-gunning nature during the three days, I ended up with hoards of duplicates as well as many unfocused and blurry shots that I had to subject to massive culling, from about 1500 in total downed to just 300+… 


Enjoyed the seiyuu sections on the main stage along with the many booths and displays in the exhibition halls, especially those that shows anime series production key frames and sketches, as well as the many experience zones. 

Major sponsors really spared no expenses making their individual booths as elaborate as possible to attract the attention of fans and regular visitors alike…
