Big news from across the Causeway! An Anime Festival Asia Malaysia 2012 press conference on Thursday afternoon has revealed that Kalafina, FLOW and KOTOKO among others, will be performing at the upcoming AFA MY this June. More after the jump.
AFA MY 2012, which will be held at Putra World Trade Centre on June 9 and 10, is generally quite similar to the Singaporean edition of AFA, and will feature several “Experience Zones”.
First up, is the I ♥ Anisong: Super Genki Live!! Anime Song Concerts. As mentioned earlier, Kalafina, FLOW and KOTOKO will be performing. Other artistes include Maon Kurosaki and SEA☆A.
AFA MY will also be holding the Regional Cosplay Championship 2012 (Malaysia Preliminary), where the winning team will get the right to compete at the finals in AFA12 in Singapore.
Other highlights include the Moe Moe Kyun Maid Cafe and the Atelier Royale Café, both of which will be heading across the Causeway, as well as a Moekana card competition.
A number of guests have also been announced for AFA MY 2012. Hosting the event will be the effervescent Danny Choo, while cosplayer KANAME☆ and Production IG president Mitsuhisa Ishikawa will also be at the event.
For those who are interested in making their way to PWTC for AFA MY 2012, one-day tickets will be sold at RM15 for Festival-only access, while Festival and stage access will cost RM30. For the concert, fans will have to fork out RM308 (two-day) or RM168 (one-day) for VIP seating tickets and RM148 (two-day) or RM88 (one-day) for free standing tickets.
Thoughts: Personally, I have still yet to decide whether I should go down for AFA MY or not (though I have already taken leave for the week). The Kalafina-FLOW-KOTOKO combo is hard to resist though…
