Crowd Gone Wild at AFA16

Although it took me a couple of days after gotten myself back to my den, I’ve finally finished the processing of all the shots I caught into my lens during my holiday visit to the Singapore last weekend, for none other than the most anticipated ACG event of the year, Anime Festival Asia 2016.

This marks my 8th annual pilgrimage to the City of the Puking Lion Fish, ever since my journey started during the year 2009, which is the 2nd year AFA debuted at that period.

AKIBA STAGE SPECIAL GUEST

Originally known as “Stand-up! Hearts”, they were formed in September 2014 as a new project by the label Stand-Up! Records, which specialises in the grooming of idol groups. Starting out as a ‘research student unit’, they participated in a whole variety of activities throughout the year, including JAM EXPO 2015 at Yokohama Arena, Shinkiba Studio Coast LIVE Plus and even JAPAN EXPO 2015, where they wowed the crowds by performing across all ten live stages and participating in the main stage fashion show.

It was in September 2015 when they celebrated their graduation as a ‘research student unit’ alongside with their one-year anniversary as a unit. Making their major debut in early Spring 2016, they have begun performing many theme songs for TV anime series and games! With many more tie-ups with anime and games planned for the years ahead, everyone has great expectations of these girls!
