Anime Festival Asia 2009 – Part 3

November 26th, 2009 One Commented

After Danny’s booth, we decided to take a break at Moe Moe Kyun Maid Cafe to have some refreshments. As we were approaching the cafe, I saw some people demonstrating digital drawing and I’ve always admire those who can draw very well. It seems to be a kind of in-born talent maybe… well, I don’t know.

After squeezing through here and there, we finally made it to Moe Moe Kyun. The queue was darn long. So, while waiting for our turn to go in, I snapped some photographs.

Frankly speaking, I didn’t like these rules at all. They made me felt so restricted.

Anyway, I couldn’t be bothered that much. So, I continued to take a couple of photos outside the cafe. ;) However, I must admit that the food was rather expensive, a tuna puff and a cup of tea at SGD15!!! Anyway, we had to experience it!

There was this little Harajuku Lovers gift stall just outside the maid cafe. Well, the girl tending the stall looks sweet so… a couple of her photos too :)

Besides, I also saw some cosplayers posing for photo-takers.

After the short break at Moe Moe Kyun, we walked to the artist alley. Here, they sold various posters and small items related to Anime.

I dropped by Storm Lion to collect a big paper bag and had a short chat with the person mending the booth. Storm Lion is dedicated to developing films and television projects in Hollywood and Asia. They have pretty amazing work!

This photo was taken from the booth Production IG. It’s one of their projects called Oblivion Island: Haruka and the Magic Mirror. The animation looks great. It was an eye-opener for me. As a programming guy, I’ve not been connecting with this part of the world for years already. How shameful! But, it’s never too late. :)

Next, I had several shots at the extravaganza section. They showcased many digital arts from various artists. I managed to snap some which I enjoy and love most. They were…


Morrigan



Be My Doll



Cloud from Final Fantasy 7



Blood Elf from World of Warcraft



My beloved Saber Lily!!!



Miku Hatsune


We walked the remaining booths. That includes Cospa, Takashimaya Anime Center and several other merchandise booths. My wife bought a cooking toy from Mega House’s Happy Kitchen. As for me, I bought the figure, Temptress Airi of Queen’s Blade by Mega House, which she’ll have a post of her own soon, I hope. It was really a long walk. There were many stuff that we wanted to buy but we needed to attend the Anisong Concert. So, we settled only with these two bulky items.
