While I still knowingly recognising many of the origin of the chara they were cosplaying, I can’t seem to actually recall the actual names of the said charas on the spot. \

Stage and Guests of PAM16

Moving into the Auditorium of Dewan Sri Pinang where it has a stage filled with seats for its audience, this is where all the guests of Penang Anime Matsuri 2016 Magical Summer performed their interviews and appearances…

It is also the coolest place of the venue thanks to its flow of air conditioning, thus making this a major resting place for many visitors during the course of the two-day event as anywhere else (Especially the main hall) were very humid and sweat-encouraging…

Continuing from the previous post, today let’s have a closer look at them booths and displays during Penang Anime Matsuri 2016 Magical Summer, without the massive crowd in between. XDc
