Announcement of ILAMY2019

Although PAM has been cancelled/postponed to the coming year, it seems it has been replaced with a new event, with the venue shifted to Kuala Lumpur this time around…

Announced last weekend, the I Love Anisong Matsuri Malaysia 2019 will happen this June, and judging from the title itself, we can probably assume that it will be more focused upon concert this time around, although currently the officials are accepting applications for their Creator’s Hub corner. There will be exhibitions as well, I suppose…

Unfortunately, I can neither attend this event, nor can I C3AFA2019, due to a high probability I’ll catch a tour to Japan at the end of the year. It is an invitation from a close friend of mine for decades.

While still in the planning stage, I would like to preserve my funds for the big trip itself, as it’s been my raison d’être to finally visit the Land of the Rising Sun…

Postponement of PAM2019

In an unfortunately announcement, it seems  that Penang Anime Matsuri 2019 has been cancelled postponed…

Even the affiliated logo on AFA’s official site has been removed…

Many speculated that this is due to the negative pressure from the recent incident involving a local immigration raid at a ACG event. However the official assures us that the management has always been diligent and abide by the law.

The postponement is actually to coincide with the Experience Penang Year which falls on the year 2020. Expect a much bigger excitement than previous years!


Announcement of C3AFA2019

Even as I was thinking when will SOZO unveil this year’s date for Anime Festival Asia related events, they finally officially announced the said dates for all their affiliated events yesterday at the last day of the 2nd Moon…

As per annually, I’ll be attending only two of the said events: PAM19 and C3AFASG2019.

Curiously, there seems to be a Penang eSport Festival on the 7th and 8th of September as well, the first of its kind this year! Hmmm… should I attend that as well?

Costume Fun at a Summer Paradise

Continuing my adventure at Penang Anime Matsuri 2018, I wandered around the event halls looking to feast my eyes upon the superior crafts and outfits adorned on the cosplayers themselves.

Thanks to the empty area just between the entrance and the exhibition halls, cosplayers and photogs alike can gather at their own leisure for on-site photo sessions and random visitor encounters asking for selfies…

Two Days at a Summer Paradise

Penang Anime Matsuri 2018 was held last weekend at the Spice Convention Centre, instead of the dimly lit mini stadium that is Spice Arena last year.

Due to how ACG events across my country being carbon-copies of one another for years, I’ve already stop attending all of them in favour of only PAM due to its more unique contents, contents that I’m more interested with. =w=

The other only ACG event I visit annually is AFA at Singapore…
