Promoting the currently airing Gakuen Toshi Asterisk, Aniplex showcased several of the series’s main chara at their booth.
Some cute, some sexy, some cool, some extraordinary. =w=
Do note that the following piccies are not as neatly arranged as the previous post, and may ended up randomly placed outta similar groups (Same anime/same booth)… XDc
It’s been a full week after the chaos that is Anime Festival Asia 2015, finally my trimming and processing of the event photos are at its end, with them taking two full nights to fully upload to my Flickr profile…
First observation: AFA15 is seemingly tight on budget this year, the lack of promotional items around the event halls are prevalent, the spaces between booths are wider (Meaning less exhibitors), and the lack of the awesomeness of the likes of NicoNico Choukaigi similar to last year’s…
The invited guests this year are rather random too, with the likes of Japanese comedians (Will expand on that on later post…) and more cosplayer guests than usual. Invited seiyuu guests are fewer than two digits, unlike the whopping 17 seiyuu guests last year…
Perhaps the AFA officials are expanding and/or experimenting with subjects other than the usual ACG stuff while gauging the interests of its attendees?
Weak knees and blisters aside, here are what I’ve managed to document into my lens over the course of my trip, despite enduring physical and mental pain all over my body. XDc
Brace yourselves, Anime Festival Asia 2015 is coming in a few days!!! More guests are being announced even during these last minutes…
Meanwhile, I’m still packing for the trip. Probably will be in silent mode for the remainder of the week until the end of the event…
