Comic Fiesta 2012 – 10 Years of Awesomeness
Seems that Lowyat.net is not the only thing that celebrates it’s 10th year of existence this year. Popular non-profit otaku gathering cum anime convention Comic Fiesta also turns 10 this year. And what a 10th version it is. Over 25,000 visitors visited Comic
Fiesta at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre this year.
Not only that it has larger halls this year, Comic Fiesta also roped in some big names, such as celebrity otaku Danny Choo, figurine maker Good Smile Company, card game company Bushiroad as well as regular names such as Codemasters. Other attractions includes Doujin booths where local artists sell their artworks based upon characters popularised in Japanese modern culture as well as Western ones.
Stage events went up a whole lot of notches as well with appearance of big names such as Supercell’s redjuice, mangaka Yoshimi Kurata as well as the sibling gospel group, bless4. redjuice and Kurata answered questions from fans about their work, mostly Guilty Crown for redjuice and Aji Ichimonme for Kurata. For bless4 fans meanwhile, they were treated to a mini concert by the group during the first night of the event. bless4 even asked to high 5 everyone that went to their concert that night, certainly making the day for most of the fans.
Other than that, there are also the obligatory cosplay competitions that always have attracted hoards of crowds wanting to see the cosplayers perform their skits. While the quality might not be as good as regional cosplay competition, it’s fun nonetheless. There are other group performers as well featured on the stage, mostly indie bands that sing Japanese songs for a massive karaoke orgy session. Alfred and Shaun, always a yearly fixture as MCs made sure that everyone had their sides in stitches with their fast and sarcastic jokes.
described in words. You need to visit the event to actually appreciate how these fans, working without pay mind you, had managed to pull of something this big, just for other fans to have fun. And for that we sincerely would like to congratulate them for 10 years of awesomeness. May it become even a larger success in the future.
We will be bringing some more private interviews with the VIPs in the future, so stay tune for that as well.
