AFAX Recent Updates~~

With less than 5 days to the grand opening of AFAX, the AFA crew has seen fit to release a wealth of information and news. So here they are, all the juicy and more interesting bits collected and displayed in one place!

If you notice, that’s actually spelled shovdovn.

First up, as you might have guessed from the picture above, is that AFAX will be hosting a karaoke competition for the first time. Now, karaoke competitions are nothing new in the Singapore anime community, what with popular events such as Cosfest and EOY having them all the time, but this is new for AFAX. Having been exposed to (and traumatized by) a wide variety of horrible singers at said events, I’m not sure if this is a good idea. The only two singers here in Singapore who are really good are Rika and Mizuki, both of whom frequently come in tops at said karaoke competitions.

I am, however, interested in seeing what the other countries can come up with. I’m sure there would be quite a number of overseas entries.

Seriously, Street Fighter 4 again?

Up next, we have two arcade tournaments – Super Street Fighter 4 and BlazBlue. I don’t know about you, but to me, this is a throw back to AFA08, where they also had a Street Fighter 4 tourney. Can’t remember how it went, but I have the impression that it wasn’t too well received. Well, we’ll see how this goes. BlazBlue is pretty popular, after all.

Anyway, it’s too bad they don’t have a Touhou Hisoutensoku tournament or a Melty Blood tournament – I would definitely join those. XD

That’s pretty much it for the new highlights they’ve added to the glowing list of crowd drawers. The rest are news on the various merchandise you can expect to find at AFA. While most are pretty normal stuff that you can grab at KKnM, some are really interesting and well worth the money, such as….

Yup. Apparently, we will be enjoying a same day release for the new Weiβ Schwarz decks, Melty Blood and Evangalion. My Typemoon blood demands that I buy the MB deck, no matter that I haven’t completed my FSN collection. It’s just one of those things that has to be done. A man has got to do what a man has got to do.

And now we have something for the old mecha fans – the ones who grew up on Mazinger Z and all the epic super robo show. The exclusive Atami Nights Shin Mazinger Z will be up for grabs.

Or if you dig the newer mechas, you can also grab HG Gundam Exia. That isn’t too bad a deal too.

Yup, that’s pretty much all the stuff that caught my eye so far. You can check out the rest of the stuff AFA has to offer here. You’d need a Facebook account, though.

KKnM also has lots more to offer, and a hell lot of exciting stuff to convince a Touhou fan like myself to part with my hard earned money. But that’s for another post. I think I’ve written enough here.
