AFA2013 Singapore

Posted by Chieko Misaki at 16:27 0 comments
Hi everyone! It's been long since my last post (oops!).

So recently this years' Anime Festival Asia 2013 was held at Suntec City Convention Centre. The place was easier to move about and find stuff compared to the Expo hahaha!

Also, since I brought more money this year, I took the chance to attend the 2nd nights' "I <3 Anisong" concert, featuring LiSA, Eir Aoi, Milky Holmes and May'n! It was my first time attending a concert, and it was really fun, the fans weren't rowdy and it was really cool to watch everybody swinging their glowstick in sync. Except for one guy standing in front of me lol! He was holding a bunch of glowsticks and dancing with it.

My ticket and glowstick :D

So then besides the concert, the exhibition hall was crowded with human jams everywhere.

This is just part of it okay QAQ There were so many freebies up for redemption, however now that I think about it I didn't redeem anything D: There were so many cosplayers and I managed to take a picture with famous cosplayer, YingTze! *fangirls*


Ignore my retarded self, YingTze is looking awesome haha!

Oh  not to forget, there was someone cos-ing as the Colossal Titan from Shingeki no Kyojin. HAHA!


And there was this cool model of Valvrave the Liberator's 01 unit~


Damn cool *^*

Lol there wasn't anything about Boku no Pico this year, not that I like the damn anime though. 

Another thing was that I finally went to the AFA Cafe this year. Kaede in person was wayy taller and huger than I had expected XD Yutaki was pretty huge too, and the meidos were really cute and fluffy they make me feel like a man instead TUT And Shou dyed his hair purple, and was really polite :>

Btw, I went there with my new friend I made online, Jeanette and it was funny because when her favourite butler Ren came around, she was superr quiet and I was kicking her under the table. LOL 

I'm glad I went to the cafe because I made other new friends too. Like there was this girl Franna who was singing to the theme song of an anime I don't know that was playing and her friend Joey was drawing. And then me and Jeanette were spazzing about the hot butlers lol and we were all giving each other the judging face HAHAHA! And then I forgot how but we became friends lol! 


I ordered Katsu Curry because I was super hungry, so no sauce pouring service for me :(

Jeanette ordered Tofu Cake(?) I think that's what it was called haha! And Yutaki drew the sauce and it was so kawaii :Q

Cute Jeanette with her nekomimi get-up bought from one of the AFA stores! >///<


There was this genderbent Black Rock Shooter cosplayer who was queuing up for the cafe too haha see the fake abs he drew on? I thought it was real at first but no, sadly. XD



There was a free nail and makeup booth at one corner of the hall, and it was really cool seeing all that makeup stuff. I have never put on make up before though, so the fake lashes really made me uncomfortable so not long after that I went to the toilet to pluck it out haha!!

More cosplayer photos:




In case you didn't know, the last picture is a bunch of cosplayers cos-ing Haikyu!! And the manga is having an anime debut next year wheeee loves ^3^

I went for the Psycho Pass interview event as well, and when Shogo Makishima's face popped up everybody just went wild lol everybody loves him hahaha!! Too bad he died in the end :( But the good news is that during the interview, a second season of Psycho Pass has been confirmed (yay!).






Then there's the Creators Hub! Awesome place, it was so filled with original stuff I spent an hour going around and around looking at the stuff repeatedly.


Before I forget, There was this towering 1:1 scale Colossal Titan Head exhibit. Damn so cool >~<

I went back on the 3rd day but for only a few hours just to go to the AFA Cafe to pass Kaede my fanart of him(lol) and alsoto see all dem butlers and meidos again! However by the time I got there there was only the Ebi Curry set left. Turns out that the ebi was actually pretty good! 

Franna and Joey, who bought a wig there.


Joey's little sister came along~


And Xiaxue and Bong Qiu Qiu came down to support Miyake and Yutaki! Haha wanted to take a photo with Qiu Qiu too but was damn nervous lol!

So after the entire event, the staff were tearing everything down and so was I and Jeanette. We were like running around the area tearing down posters for ourselves hahaha!! And I ran into Kaede so I managed to take a selfie with him *fangirls*

But I'm not gonna show the photo, because it's only for my eyes MWAHAHAHA!!

Well I ran into him a couple of times while running around looking for posters and free stuff but I didn't want to give the impression of a stalker so I kept running away lol. Talk about being overly self-conscious.

Loots from AFA2013! More to come, my Haruka Nanase shirt is in the wash, I forgot to take a picture of my Nanimori Middle School Disciplinary Armband and also my Japanese School Bag hasn't yet arrived.
