The biggest name in Japanese Popular Culture content in the region, Anime Festival Asia is back again this November with AFASG 2015. Since its birth in 2008, the mega anime contention has seen a total of more than half a million attendees over the years and has expanded into the region with Anime Festival Asia Thailand (AFATH) and Anime Festival Asia Indonesia (AFAID).
Releasing its line-up for AFASG 2015’s I Love Anisong concert this year, organisers Sozo surprised fans with many new names in line with its Reboot theme. While fans would still recognise names such as BACK-ON, May’n, bless4 and GARNiDELiA from previous outing, others are looking to make their first impact here at AFASG 2015 and in Singapore.
Content wise, many are still waiting to see what AFASG 2015 will have in store as the September, October and November period is packed with other events like STGCC 2015, GameStart 2015 and the F1 SingaporeGP 2015. Thus giving rise to talk that Sozo might release details later on in the coming weeks.
Cosplay fans however will be pleased that Celebrity cosplayer KANAME☆ will be back again to charm everyone with his high level of quality and realism in his cosplays. Malaysian cosplayers angie and YingTze will also be at AFASG 2015 while fans can also look forward to popular Korean cosplayer Tomia and rising cosplay stars from Japan, JUN & NERU, who will be making their way down to Singapore and AFASG for the first time.
While the AFASG 2015 page still looks rather sparse compared to other years, fans will want to keep a lookout over the coming weeks as we have an itching feeling more will be made known soon.
