Anime Festival Asia AFA 2015 Coverage

A final event coverage before the year ends and once again the long running Anime Festival Asia AFA. I noticed his year AFA has more sale booths especially those table booths where youngsters could exercise their entrepreneurship. On the other hand, I felt that the exhibition portion had been scaled down. The exhibition booth by Bandai, Banpresto (Ichiban Kuji), Good Smile were the main ones and they were areas I took most of my pics from. Kotobukiya only displayed their 'Frame Arms Girls' kits which I expected more from them with at least more display or sale booth. How I wished VOLKS return again to AFA this year cos they booth was awesome the last time : (

Bandai's Gunpla display has got adorable customised Beargguy of Gundam from various series. I especially like the display of Bandai's Star Wars model kits as they were rather nicely built and introduced at the right time with the movie fever just around the corner. I managed to see Megahouse's released Tharsis from the anime 'Aldnoah Zero' on display but unfortunately the price was beyond my budget. I will be interested to watch One-Punch- Man, an unexpected protagonist that came bald. I find Banpresto's Dragonball Z real figure painted manga style. 

ps: Apologises for no cosplay coverage this year.

i think that any exhibition, as time goes, tends to evolve into a more commercial event, it’s the way to make it more economically efficient and well, this hobby is also a big business anyway... apart of the delicious mechas (the Tharsis is incredible !!!), what made me droll was the display of dolls... they’re unique, realistic, sexy, cute and trendy !!!... definitely, not the cup of coffee for everyone, but i’m working to bring a doll (not necessarily female) to my collection, because i love the odd stuff !!!... =D

Yeah Tharsis is great. Thankfully, I already have Orange. I guess AFA is mainly on anime and so exhibits on toys isn't the focus and you are right about the commercial aspects. I was told this year AFA was not done by the usual organizer. Those dolls you like were by Danny Choo. I think their booth had good display too.
