(AFA 09) Randomness.

AFA 09 has matured since it’s first showing in 2008 . There were more exciting exhibits and special guest that had my fangirl senses tingling. However, the major factors that made AFA 09 truly an enjoyable experience has to be attributed to the comrades that I was with (you-know-who-you-are) and the fun discussions that occurred during all those times we spent waiting.

First thing I did was queue up to get into the KKnM booth. Which was pretty stupid in retrospective as I didn’t really want to get anything from the shop (that I couldn’t get from the shop normally)… but I still walked away with a Project Diva mug, a GA Art Class shitajiki and an assortment of loot for friends who couldn’t make it for AFA Day 1.

I think a major draw to queuing up was getting a chance to practice queuing for C77. =P Gotta love how the queue system was sort of more organized this year. And I was actually quite lucky as I was in the first 30 peeps in line. But I was stuck for quite a bit at the front of the queue because the people ahead of me was taking forever looting the event special items. =_=

And the queue behind me. Checkout all the fanboys and dire lack of fangirls.

I suggested to the KKNM staff that they should try setting up two lines next time around. One for fangirls and one for fanboys. So the poor fangirls who just want their Hetalia and KHR stuff don’t have to huddle in the midst of fanboy discussions, over Monster Hunt and which Bakamonogatari girl is their waifu, while waiting. =_=”

And another pic as I left the booth and took a peek at the end of the line which had grown to an incredible length.

The Visual Arts Society (VAS) of NTU comprises of three sub-clubs that cover Anime, Comics and Design. In some sense, getting involved with VAS during my University days is the reason I am who I am today. I started out being the Chairperson of Animeworks and eventually rose the ranks to become the President of the whole club. Being part of VAS has provided me with an opportunity to meet people of similar interests and create a circle of friends who I can share my passions with. I’m really glad to be part of the club’s growth and seeing VAS being part of AFA really makes me feel proud. Though I have moved on from my VAS days, I’ll continue rooting for the club and hope that others will get a chance to experience the fun times I had when I was in VAS.

One of the things we did in VAS is that we had regular movie screening or outings of Anime movies. Thus, looking at this signed poster of Summer Wars makes me nostalgic of those times. =)

Okay, now onto more irrelevant pictures:

These doll clothes (approx Azone/Barbie sized) are the creations from the students from SOTA?  I’m not very sure. The display up were quite nice and interesting. Sadly I didn’t notice anyone nearby that was manning the booth who could explain more about what the whole display was about.

Here are cartons of UCC coffee with Evangelion characters emblazed on the cans. Which was a clever marketing idea since the second Eva movie was being shown in local cinemas during this point of time.

Production I.G had booth too! Just wished there were more interesting stuff up on display.

DOMO-KUN. He’s like a permanent fixture at all Anime-related events. =D

Photobucket

BANDAI has some of the cutest petite figures. =)

Photobucket

Here are some Prop Plus Petit from FMA. Al is so darn adorable!

Photobucket

And some more from Kuroshitsuji. One major problem I had with the display is the DUST. It’s so annoying that the glass was dusty and had smudges from fangirls trying to press their face up to the glass to get a closer look at the chibis.

Photobucket

Besides a whole host of chibi figures targeted at the fangirl demographics, there were also some for the boys.

Photobucket

The K-on girls looks good. =)

The girls were in their school uniforms…

and also in their concert gear.

I love Azu-nyan!

Lastly, we have a human-sized GUNDAM~! =D

More AFA 09 pics later.
