Anime Festival Asia (AFA) is Southeast Asia’s biggest showcase of the latest Japanese popular culture and anime contents. Previously, AFA was organized at Singapore annually since 2008 This year, for the very first time, AFA is coming to Malaysia – Anime Festival Asia Malaysia (AFAMY).
The second day of AFA11 was a crowd disaster. There are two other conventions took place at the same day besides AFA.
Basically there’s two major swarms of Zerglings, one for AFA, another for electronics. Although the third exhibition isn’t at the same level as the other two, but it took away the cosplayer’s floor space. Leaving the cosplayers and photographers wandering around.
The lighting was bad and the crowd was a mess. Terrible experience for cosplay photoshoot.
