Due to the real-life commitments (Army) and many other factors involved (procrastination is one), it has been a long time since I have updated this blog. Anyway, back to the topic at hand, Anime Festival Asia 2009 or more commonly known as AFA 09.

Since many other blogs have already covered this topic, I shall do a summary instead to not bore you guys with all the nifty gritty details.

Performers

Others

The Anime song performances will be split between the two days of the event. Ichirou Mizuki, Shoko Nakagawa and Hatsune Miku on day one while Yoshiki Fukuyama and May’n on day two. Concert tickets are priced at S$188 for two days and S$108 for one day, with the entry fee included. You can also purchase regular entry tickets to the event at S$25 for both days or S$15 for one.

It definitely looks like the event is growing, specially with the amount of performers and also industry items that will be bought in. Also, with the industry networking side that has expanded to a day of it’s own. I am actually rather excited at how this year’s event would turn out, but unfortunately have to give this year’s event a miss as I’d be overseas during the majority of November for an overseas exercise.

It is also  appears inevitable that this blog will eventually turn into a lost memory in the dark internet sooner or later. Also, I will be selling away my doujins as an effort to save up for my university funds. Many of you guys have received my text message 2 weeks back regarding that matter and I’ll be posting them up as soon as I can.

Japan Bicycle Drift

A really cool but somewhat dated video featuring some amazing bicycle drifts performed by a Japanese man. Those who frequent the land of the moe, ero and more ero moe would probably have seen the sheer amount of human powered transportation known as the bicycle.

Generally there are two kinds of annoying cyclists. The first type who is too shy to ring the bell and follows you behind like a stalker.

And the other type who is also too shy to ring the bell but instead screeches the brakes right behind you. I am a cyclist myself but more often than not I ring the bell to let the people in front know that there’s a bicycle behind. Rather dangerous to cycle on the public roads here.
