A special video by AFA organiser which reflects the journey of the Anime Festival Asia which was held in Singapore since 2008. A few sub-conventions were held in other Southeast Asian countries during this period as well.
AFA has since established itself as the premier Japanese pop culture festival, bringing to SE Asia countless top performing artists and industry guests over the last seven years, with an estimated 700,000 attendees at 11 events.
The first two minutes include highlights from the AFA2014 which concluded last December. The second (six minutes) part are interviews with founder Shawn Chin and regular performers at AFA i.e. May’n, LiSA, fripSide and Eir Aoi.
I would have made the trip on its first year if not for a friend’s wedding. My interest gradually fades though, I rarely watched anime anymore back then and even less so nowadays… if they are doing some 90’s retro I may give it a go though LoL.
