I'm in Singapore. Going for all 3 days (full day except saturday since I can only manage to come for garakowa). This is going to be fun, even has my favourite moe show GochiUsa! (thank you AFA for featuring this, AOTY 2015). I won't be able to attend concert since it's expensive and not rich enough.

I'm prob having around $50-100 to spend on goods. See you guys there!.

Cool to see that happening, though.

lol that's a pretty sloppy banner there. Did you use MS Paint for that?

Anyway, it sounds like a pretty cool event. To everyone going, I hate you.

I have no idea why people care about these anime conventions. You pay to be shamelessly pandered to for a couple days on end, and then buy even more merchandise. Waste of money.

Cool that we're covering it for those who do care, though.

Surprised to see MAL gonna cover this. I'm going down as well to watch Garakowa the second time and to meet with some executives there. My Japanese reporter friend might be coming down to cover this too. Haha

Yup I will be going but not the concert segment. Compared to previous years the lineup for the concert this year is pretty disappointing.

Yay! I'm a country near the Singapore, but I can't go there. Too bad, 29's my birthday. It would be really fun to go there, but I don't have enough money.
