Anime Festival Asia 2014 – My Experience

Here we go again with Anime Festival Asia 2014! This year’s AFA was also held at Jakarta Convention Center. Held on the 15-17th of August, the same day with Indonesia Independence Day!

Due the massive amount of works I’m currently doing recently, I only able to enjoy afa only on the saturday night, I came on Sunday night but only to pick up my kanojo.

even though it’s only for a short time, it was fun because I could meet with my friends.

Love live counter, every otaku’s favorite “idols”

but that day at afa, people had one more “idol”

Worship our god!

lol, me personally doesn’t have a taste for dolls, but it is always intriguing to see how 2D anime girl can affect human ^^

then the AFA cafe. Met Jim and He said the cafe was running good and smooth. Yutakis was there and he drives women crazy with that handsomeness of him (or should i say prettiness?)

the one thing i knew about Yutaki is that he has that feminine side of him…. no, not like I personally experience it, I just saw him from outside the cafe. lol.

maybe everyone already knew that SAGA is a multinational group, the girl is Korean, the guy in the middle is Japanese, and the guy in the right is Chinese. All of them speak English so they can communicate well with their fans.

ah look at those puny unicorn and banshee… meh, zeong will destroy your asses!!!!

lol, the zeong was sold at 5 million rupiah.

and there is this organic shaped gundam

that’s not really like a shape of a gundam, but once again, I like Turn A, so I can handle a little abnormalities in gundam shape 🙂

hell yeah baby
hell yeah baby

and then there’s these ultra cool one piece figures

IMG_1755-52-s

hahaha, I don’t know what happened to you dear canon photographers, but that photo is so purple. I edited it a bit here so it won’t turn like purple Reon.. hahahaha

Anyway AFA was fun even I only enjoyed it a little.
