Anime Festival Asia 2008

Anime Festival Asia (AFA) was held in Singapore this year, just over the weekends at the Suntec International Convention and Exhibition Center. I bet it was really fun for those two days. Apart from the many nice display items, plenty of other events were organized as well. May'n, the singing voice for Sheryl Nome in Macross Frontier was there for a mini-concert, and so was "the King" Ichirou Mizuki.

For Gundam fans, Kunio Okawara-sensei made an appearance at the event as well.

How I wish I could be there as well T___T

Here are photos from the event, which are just tips of the iceberg really:
