A Puppet Show at AFA16

Another series has been revealed as the Featured Not-Anime at Anime Festival Asia 2016, along with a special guest, the (in)famous Urobutcher!

This series is not actually an anime, but a hand-puppet show using Taiwanese dolls with collaboration from Japanese companies including GSC and Nitroplus…

Acquisitions of the Trip

Although I’ve finished all my reports on my Anime Festival Asia 2015 experience, I’ve yet to showcase my acquisitions from the course of this pilgrimage. =w=

I barely spent a dime fortune within the exhibition halls, only really gotten a couple of stuff (And a DIY) from the GSC booth… A majority of my real prizes came from outside the event itself… 

Anyway, many thanks to the organisers, I’ve managed to obtain a pass to enter the halls and stage area as a, well, media. ^^;

For this I salute the ones involved in the decision to set aside one pass for me. o7

Apparently there are two levels for Media passes: only those with Media (1) enjoy the privilege to snatch piccies during the stage events normally prohibited to regular visitors and Media (2) holders.
