With each passing year Anime Festival Asia has become a grander celebration of Japan’s popular culture and this year the event is still held at Suntec City but it starts off with a very special date 1 1Nov 2011 (11.11.11).
The press preview for this year AFA took place this morning and we were treated to the awesome star-studded cast of celebrity cosplayers, idols, awesome vocalist and rock bands that will definitely get everyone rocking during the “I LOVE ANISONG” concerts.
Cosplayer Kaname has returned to Singapore again with a new cosplaying comrade Usagi and both of them look so gorgeous on stage cosplaying as Kaito and Luka from Vocaloids. We were also introduced to each of the stars that will be performing at this year’s “I LOVE ANISONG” concerts. I sure hope you have bought your tickets to see them since its a rare chance to see them perform in Singapore.
Day 2 Performers:
- Ichirou Mizuki
Day 3 Performers:
- Itou Kanako
- Milky Holmes
The organisers have certainly put in a lot of effort to bring all these amazing stars down so I do hope that everyone show your fullest support during the concert ^^
Of course, the “I LOVE ANISONG” is just one of the many fun-filled segment for AFA’11. There are other exciting events such as the Regional Cosplay Championship, special live dubbing session by seiyuu Chiwa Saitou, talk by the staff behind the anime series Anohana, MMK Meido Cafe & AR Butler Cafe, and not forgetting my Figurine Photography Workshop. You can check out the full list of events happening at AFA’11 with the event guide.
I’m certainly looking forward to kicking off AFA with tonights’ Hatsune Miku Live Party in Singapore 2011. Hope to see everyone there ^^
