Came back in time from Hong Kong to attend this year's AFA. Seems like ticket pricing had gotten up again with the lowest, exhibition area access at $13. This don't seems to deter the attendees as they patiently queuing up to enter as soon as the festival opened at 9.30am. I was wrong about going early to beat the crowd. Lots of youngsters attending AFA, making me feel out of place. My first stop was Bandai booth, keen to view the chrome PG Perfect Grade Unicorn Phenex. There I signed up for PREMIUM BANDAI Singapore! and received my free shipping coupon for my first purchase online.
I walked around and realized that this year's AFA had done away maid cafe and brought in food culture with more Japanese food booths @ Wattention Food Street. Free miso soup was given out at certain timing.
As I walking along the artist's booths, it was jammed packed and long queues outside exclusive anime shops.
Canon did a nice photo booth with EVA 02 themed car where the staff helped me took a pic of me with the car, using my iPhone and proceeded with printing 3R photo for free via Canon PIXMA photo-printer.
At the stage was Q&A of celebrity cosplayer (Reika).
Kotobukiya booth was promoting Frame Arms Girls with "Feel and Touch Set Up Zone" handling these model kits. Don't think the kinky way ^_^
Lastly a look at Virtual Reality VR Idol game gear and PlayStation P4 World of Tanks and Battleships using anime banners as a way of promotion.
Unfortunately, I didn't stay long enough to take pics of cosplayers....Aa zannenda
