Greetings to all our readers. The Anime Festival Asia Malaysia 2012 (AFA 2012) has been an interesting and exciting one this year with over 10,000 visitors visiting the event here in Malaysia. The event was held for 2 days – 9 and 10 June 2012 at PWTC, Kuala Lumpur and the entrance fee for the Festival only is RM 15 and RM 30 for the Festival & Stage Access. For the stage access, you will have full access to exclusive main stage activities and content, such as Special Guest Appearances, AFA Regional Cosplay Championships Preliminary and more!
We have taken some photos to share with all our readers here. We have categorise them into 3 grouping, the event only photo, Cosplay and also a special section for the Macross Fans of Malaysia.
Firstly, for the first batch of photos below, you can see the booth that was available in the festival. We have booth for the animation series Vanguard, some hobby shops selling the animated series merchandise, Good Smile Company from Japan and Tamashi Nations from Bandai. Items sold there are mainly Nendoroids, One Piece merchandise, Masked Rider, etc.
Next, we saw a booth; Macross Fans of Malaysia. Here, they showcase a number of nice Macross/Robotech collectibles and I must say, the collections are nice. 😀
Finally, something that not to be missed in this event is the Cosplay by the Malaysians. I am somehow impressed by the creativity of the Malaysians on how they imitate their favorite anime character. We have characters from the animation series such as Naruto, One Piece, Samurai X, Bleach, Masked Rider and we even have Iron Man and Stormtroppers. These are just some of the cosplays that I have taken photos of.
