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 meanJourney 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!!!
One of the highlights of AFA09 this year, Yoshiki Fukuyama, member and guitarist of the famous JAM Project and also lead singer for Macross 7 comes to Singapore for the first time while May’n/Sheryl Nome is back once again to AFA, Singapore for a second year running to perform at AFA09 I LOVE Anisong, Suntec City CC. I was actually persuade to buy the front tickets by my friend because he was a seriously huge fan of both. I’m not quite a big fan but they are my favourite artist in the anisong industry. For me May’n was more of my choice while Fukuyama gave me a very nostalgic feeling.
“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. I learn from today I really needed a back-up partner/assistant for an event such as AFA09. It was truly a successful event, no doubt about it and I have to give 2 thumbs up. 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.
Full ticket information and details are out for AFA’09 I LOVE Anisong concert event. Firstly, the event will see the return of legendary Ichiro Mizuki (Aniki) and May’n (Sheryl Nome). Both celebrities received one of the most electrifying reception by the crowd last year and decided to come back again for the fans this year. Three new acts will be appearing at the event for the first time in South East Asia are Virtual Idol – Hatsune Miku, Seiyuu – Shoko Nakagawa and another legend from group JAM Project and best known for Basara, Songwriter, Guitarist, Singer – Yoshiki Fukuyama.
Today was the release of afa09.com and also the press conference of what is to expect at this years event. I wasn’t able to go to the press conference but a friend of mine (Mr.Osama) went down to Singapore for it. I managed to get the latest updates from Twitter this afternoon and I’m very happy with the line-up for this years AFA’09.
