Yo guys! Yuuki is here!
ok.. today I’ll post about AFAID (day 1 only though T_T )
so, this was the first AFA that is held in Indonesia!
AFAID was held on Saturday and Sunday, 1st -2nd Sept 2012 in Hall A PRJ and started at 9 AM..
however, even though you’ve reached there at 9AM sharp, you can only get into the Hall 1hour later, why?
yap! as you can see on the picture above, the QUEUEs were long as hell!
this is the picture i got when i finally able to got in!
and there were 2 types of ticket, 50k and 125k.
the difference is, the 50k ticket won’t be able to enter the stage and the 125k one are able to watch the stage’s guests. and there is another difference between there 2 tickets, for 125k ticket, you’ll get a bracelet. so in total the 125k ticket’s owner will get these:
and i got into late at that time, i couldn’t watch Kaname! T_T
but from the informations i got from my friends who were able to went in first, Kaname shared about his costly properties. he also shared about the process of making those properties! (yes, even Kaname made his own properties) too sad i couldn’t watch it! T_T
i only could get into the stage when Vivian Wijaya-san is on stage! she is a mangaka from Indonesia!
and know what?! She was a DOCTOR! and she became a mangaka right now! I really amazed by this fact! she told us about how she studied to draw in Japan, the obstacles she faced, his Drawing school and her new Manga which is released in AFA!! XD
and after her, we had the Anisong Stars!!!!! XD Bless 4, Ichiro Mizuki, Lisa dan 7!! they tried to talk in Indonesian language! pfft~ thank you very much! i appreciate it!
example: Selamat Siang!!! Apa Kabar!!
Lisa chooooooo kawaii !! ( i know she is very cute from her picture, but if you see her in person, she is sooo cute!!), 7!! they are so hyper !! (there was a member who can’t stop jumping! XP ) , Bless 4 , so elegant~( there is a member who can speak english!), dan Ichiro Mizuki made us laugh!! (he tried to speak in english!) XD
even though they can’t speak in english, we still have a translator which is the host, Danny Choo! but it’s better to hear it directly from the artist, right? XD
here, they also announced their products which is sold in the stand.
7!! will sign on the CD you bought from AFA at 4 PM!
and Ichiro Mizuki also sold his cool scarf which will never get limp! XD
and after this, we have DANNY CHOO!! Yeii the Host of AFAID!
for the person who don’t know who is Danny, he is a famous Otaku blogger from england who moved to Japan. the content of his blog is about JAPAN, which has been translated to many languages (there is no Indonesian though)
beside his web, he also has videos named ‘Culture Japan’ which can be watched in Animax, Youtube and Crunchyroll ~
he told us about his characters “Mirai chan and her friends!” he also introduced 2 new characters who haven’t get a name yet. XD
and starting from Danny Choo performance, we can (Finally) take a picture!
I’ve took a picture, but the picture doesn’t turn out too good T_T so i won’t post it here ..
here, we also have a technical error, the screen suddenly turned off (?)
ok, it was accepted that there was a technical error, however!!
when the screen was dead, Danny asked for help but.. no one help him!
after 5-10 minutes, finally someone came and helped him.
the AFAID crews were so not professional..
I hope Danny won’t be disappointed with Indonesia because of this.
he also shared some of his motto (?), like: *I don’t remember each words but the meanings are still the same*
1. “Live the life you want and not the expectation of the others”
like Vivian-san, she changed her occupation to mangaka from a doctor!!! wow
2. “always think of the long term instead of the short term”
like, it is okay to do some unpaid works but you’ll get experience and knowledge from it!
3. “ if you have talent, show it!”
like one of his illustrator from Indonesia, he shared his illustration of mirai chan to Danny and Danny likes it! He then gave that person some tests and that person can passed all of the tests given by Danny. This illustrator then work for Danny formally and being paid of course, he also will be brought to Japan!! OMEDETOU!
Those words are so cool,right? *nod*
Here we also have a special guest! The boss or Ikemen (what Danny called him) of “Good Smile Company”! XD
He said something like this (again I cant remember the exact words) *ehem*
” it is really unpredicted that the number f person who will join us today is this much. While in the first AFA Singapore, the number of Otakus came is not this much! With this, it is impossible for the other Otaku Company to not taking Indonesia into their destination place!”
How I heard it: THERE WILL BE MORE OTAKU PRODUCTS COME TO INDONESIA! *ehem*
After Danny Choo, the stage is filled with Indonesian Cosplayers! They are all good!! And they will be judged by : *Jeng jeeengg*
Kaname-sama!!, Akatsuki san!! dan Richfield (cosplayer from Indonesia
The winner of this competition will represent Indonesia in the International Cosplay competition!! (GANBATTE GUYS!!)
And from an amateur’s view like me, they are all amazing!
The cosplayers, the properties, the sound effects, the stories, the expression.. COOL!!! (I’m speechless)
This is the picture of Kaname-san!!!
Yosh! Every J-event like this, we always have cosplayers right? And these are their pictures that I got!!!
on the side of the road, there are some collectors and players of card games.. they share their collections and play them~
ok.. maybe some of you ask for the review of the exhibition..
too bad I couldn’t get into the exhibition T_T
why? Because the break time given every guest changes (?) is not enough to be able to go out from the stage area and went into the exhibition area and then comeback to the stage..
there are too crowded in front of the stage and exhibition entrance doors! T_T
so I decided to stay in the stage area because I don’t want to miss a thing (remember about Kaname T_T) but….
I STILL GET MY MOEKANA!!!! HUAHAHAHHAHA
I asked my friends to buy it for me~ XD
Next year, on AFAID 2013 I will definitely went there at 7:30 !!!
Ok this is it the review of AFAID from me!!
