Due to family and work commitments like bringing my family to Hello Kitty Town in Malaysia and having to work on Sunday due to my shift pattern, I could only attend AFA 2012 on the final day in the late afternoon. Since it's a once in a year event so I better to be there than to have it a miss. There were a lot of activities going on simultaneous like Animax anime video trick, cosplayers interview, anime songs karaoke and etc.
As for product exhibition, Bandai had provided a strong support with exhibits from S.H Figuarts. Chogokins and soon-to-release non Gundam model kits. Good Smile had also contributed mainly on Figma and anime fix-posed figures.
'Sword Art Online' anime must be indeed popular to have its own exhibition area however it was almost virtually empty, like it had been looted. A lot of merchandises were sold out and crossed out on the sale board. No first blood or should I say, I didn't even make any purchase this time round. In contrary, it's a blessing because this month's budget exploded due to excessive buying of kits and toys poisoned by peers from watsapp Gundam chit-chat club.
I didn't take any pics of cosplayers unless you consider the Zaku II on the platform. Reason because I didn't have the extra strength left to compete and squeeze with other zealous male photographers. Can visit 'Open The Toy' for cosplayers pics. Apologies for the extremely brief Anime Festival Asia AFA 2012 report with only few pics of the stuffs that caught my attention.
