It’s been about a week from the day CF2013 was held. It was pretty much like the Comiket. The event ended with a huge success at about 40,000 visitors in total, that was a really huge number if you think about it. I did enjoyed it until I got myself tired after walking around the area since the event occupied 6 huge halls & all of them connected each other, can you imagine how huge the venue was…
Here’s another stage performance by Raja Farouk, some kind of doujin-like band which performed some cover songs during the 2nd day of the event. 1/2 (Rurouni Kenshin OP) cover song was the best one.
I’ve to say, this is the most entertaining event in CF2012! They were very sociable with the fans around them. Plus, they were astonished with the fans’ reaction who are not Japanese to begin with understand the Japanese language really well. Two words for them, EPIC PERFORMANCE! They were also did the Sousei no Aquarion song, so no worries guys… 🙂
My apologies for the video shakiness & to be honest I was pretty annoyed with the guy who was standing in front of me blocking the sight of the camera at the beginning of the event. But well, what done is done.
A huge event with an enormous attendees. Truly epic. Videos will come up later but don’t expect these will come sooner.
Danny Choo on stage giving presentation about his early life & detailed information about his famous brand “Culture Japan”. Also gave out some motivational values to the attendees.
I LOLed out at a time during the dance trooper video shown out!
Actually, this video was incomplete because my memory card was fully consumed, causing the interruption of the recording. At least I got the dancing trooper one…

That event was full of awesomeness! Looking forward to it next year, hopefully. FYI, this is an AFA event that held for the first time outside Singapore, which is the regular venue of the event since its debut back in 2008. I managed to catch the happenings altogether in a video made by me, covers all aspects of the event on both days. I didn’t managed to attend the concert, so my apologies. Any media capturing during the concert was prohibited anyway…
The event itself would not be perfect without goodies & stuffs. So I managed to get my picks. One of the things that I bought was the Moekana, a basic hiragana learning cards made by Danny Choo, the famous J-Pop culture blogger & host of Culture Japan. It’s just like the other trading cards, only the difference is its function as a learning card. Here’s my unpacking video of the merchandise.
This is the first video I made with a commentary audio. My voice seems a bit weird isn’t it? And my English pronunciation still a bit off, probably… 😛
Moekana consists of the basic hiragana characters together with the illustrations featuring Culture Japan mascot character, Mirai Suenaga that were made by Ikkyuu, helps you to bright up your vision. Moekana is now received well by all ages recently. Last time, the first round of preorders was sold out.
With Moekana, you can play many types of games. You can refer to the official Moekana site here. Fun learning with Moekana!
Here’s a snap of Danny Choo, together with me holding the Moekanas. Really appreciate the work.
He announced that a new learning card, called Moekanji consists of kanji characters is currently in production right now. Gonna grab it when it comes out!
More AFAMY video highlights coming soon…
