AFASG is back again!

By Yian Lu  /  25 Nov 2016 (Friday)
Anime Festival Asia Singapore, into its ninth year, kicks off its three-day experiential showcase today. With over 200 booths by more than 130 exhibitors, a stellar line-up of industry guests and acclaimed artistes, and an action-packed programme, fans can look forward to an exhilarating weekend of non-stop surprises and insights on Japanese popular culture and anime.

The festival consists of three main components — the Exhibition hall with exclusive merchandise, displays and experience zones as well as a mini stage (Akiba Stage), the Main Day Stage where activities with featured guests and anime are showcased at various timings, and the I Love Anisong concerts in the evenings. Check out the daily contents guide! (P.S. Pikotaro — the PPAP guy — will be making an appearance on 27 November 2016, Sunday, 6:30pm at the mini stage!)
