(Events) August is a month for celebrations!

It seems like AFA 08 was just a short while ago and now we have the organizers for AFA 09 rallying up anticipation for Nov 21 & 22. But before we get carried away with freebies, there are few big events that might concern the Singaporean Otaku (self-coined term).

First thing off, we have

Singapore Toy Games & Comic Convention (STGCC)

Date: 14-16 August 2009

Venue: Suntec International Exhibition & Convention Centre (Hall 401 & 402)

Time: 11.00am – 9.00pm

Entrance: Free Admission

NOTES: STGCC09 is due to hit the shores less then ten days! As I had not been to the STGCC 08, I am not sure what to expect. But it should be sortof like AFA but with more emphasis for western spin on things? It’s time to rally up the crew and head down to Suntec Convention Centre (also home to AFA) to check things out. Hope I’ll have a working DSLR by then. =)

Next up,

A.C.M.E – A Certain Magical Event

Date: 22nd August 2009 (Saturday)

Venue: Nayang Academy of Fine Arts Seminar Room (2nd Floor)

Time: 11.00am – 5.00pm

Entrance: Free Admission

NOTES: This event is for more hardcore fans as it encourages excessive spending on Anime merchandise, Doll accessories, Gundam Kits, Doujin & Artwork and much more . There is a also a Weis Schwarz Tournament. This event also seems to relatively Cosplay-free, as there are no related activities involved. The only cosplay that is going to be around is all the enthusiastic otaku boys in their COSPA t-shirts. I might wear my Sadaharu (from Gintama) t-shirt! =D

Natsu Matsuri

Date: Saturday, 22 August 2009
Time: 6pm to 10pm
Venue: Japanese Primary School Changi Campus
Admission: $2 per person

NOTES: Last year’s Natsu Matsuri was plagued by a massive downpour that made walking around in a Yukata challenging. Hopefully there won’t be any rain and we all can dance BON-ODORI under the night’s sky.
