May’n – Styles / Sheryl Nome and Ranka Lee Emotion figures

Just got my copy of May’n First Full Album cover called Styles today. I’m pretty sure Bagman will be dieing to get it later on in the mailbox. There are many new tracks inside which I recently got to hear them live at AFA09 on the weekend in Singapore. Well compared to her previous Mini Album this was more to original style of May’n. The only anime like tracks in this album is are Kimi Shinitamou Koto Nakare (OP theme SHANGRI-LA) and Welcome To My FanClub’s Night! -Styles version- (OST Macross Frontier). Surprisingly Pink Monsoon wasn’t included maybe because it was produced earlier and specifically for the new Macross Frontier Movie:The False Songstress (Diva) which is out in cinemas throughout Japan.

AFA09 X Kei Experience

Let me say this for a start, AFA09 is a once in a lifetime experience for everyone, compared to AFA08 and many others I’ve attended in my years, this was an event which tops the list as the best! For those who attended the event; First timers, I hope you guys love all the activates they had. It was seriously a learning experience especially if you are here for the very first time; Returners, welcome back and I know a lot of you have been busy as I’ve been looking through some websites and blog about how much fun (or not) you guys had. So let me tell you my “Journey through the Decade”…wait, sorry I mean Journey to AFA09 Singapore. Warning it’s long so get yourself a cup of refreshments and some snacks to go with it.

p/s (27/11): I’ll upload photos this weekend. The freakin internet connection back in Malaysia is playing PMS once again. I super miss REAL speed like back in Singapore and the time I lived in Australia. NEVER TRUST MALAYSIA’s ISP!!!

Kaname☆ X AFA09

He has to be one of the hottest cosplayer in Asia under the male category right now. His popularity is undeniably huge in South East Asia including the day of AFA09 in Singapore. A lot of people would recognize him as Ichigo from Bleach, Cloud from Final Fantasy 7 and from cosplayers themselves, best known as Benten from Zone-00. I managed to catch him live on the front stage and backstage for the event which was a huge honor as I myself am trying to go into cosplaying someday.

“Jesus Christ!!!”…that’s all I have to say…why?!?!? I seriously made freakin loads of mistake this time around, I never expected such an event where I couldn’t even cover half of what was going on.

So I’ll show a bit of stuff of what I could really get on Day 2 of AFA 09. I know it’s a little late but I just got back to Malaysia and I really need time to look through everything.
