If you have been paying attention to recent anime convention scenes, you most likely will come across the announcement of a particular convention being held at Suntec halls 403-404 Singapore this 22-23 November and that is the Anime Festival Asia 2008. Check out the official site: http://www.afa08.com
You must be thinking: “Why this particular convention?” Simple, because the singing voice for the character “Sheryl Nome” – May’N from the anime “Macross Frontier” is coming to Singapore’s AFA08 event! To give you an idea of what this girl can do, i present you 2x youtube poison clips:
Diamond Crevasse, skip the interview until 2:05 if you only want the performance.
Northern Cross, skip the interview/show until 3:40 if you only want the performance.
I am DEFINITELY going to see her, annual leaves approved and what not 😀
We have a Malaysian anime community gathering attendees for the event here, albeit small, but who knows if there are MANY others going but doesnt participate in either one of the groups listed from that list.
Many other notable appearences would be:
- Mr. Kunio, notable for his mechanical designs for gundam, especially in Gundam Seed Destiny and the latest Gundam 00 animes.
- Bandai themselves. Which probably doesnt need any introduction.
- Studio 4C as well, to showcase their latest Genius party works. Further info of Studio 4C can be found here. (do click, you’ll be very surprised! guaranteed)
- Various major Japanese Figurine companies list as you can see from here. Notable appearence would be: Alter, Kotobukiya, Good Smile Company.
I present you readers, teh lewts:
