As mentioned earlier, Animax held a K-On! promotion event at Bangsar’s Jalan Telawi on the 6th. The event itself was managed by Roots’s Zeck, with his buddy Seth as a bodyguard. Linkin was the liaison for the cosplayers: Angie as Yui, Arisa as Mio, Aster as Mugi and Crystal as Ritsu. Also along was Jeremy from Gameaxis, and a few more whose names I couldn’t quite catch. Apologies.
The initial plan called for the cosplayers to wander around Telawi, engaging people on the streets. It was soon apparent that no one was interested in walking around under the sun at 1pm, and the cosplayers themselves were uncomfortable in the heat. A change of plans had the girls take pictures with shoppers inside the Bangsar Village shopping complex itself, but even that itself was unsatisfactory – Bangsar was simply not a haunt of anime fans. Simply put, the event wasn’t reaching its target audience.
After a short discussion between Linkin and Matt, it was agreed that the event should move to Times Square and the Bukit Bintang area, where there was a promotion for a particular MMORPG going on. This switch of locale payed off, and soon the girls were engaging people on the streets on Bukit Bintang, giving out flyers and snapping pictures with eager fans and non-fans alike. If you had your pics taken with the girls, do post your pics on the Animax Facebook page.
Overall, the event was a success once it was moved to Times Square. A special thanks to Matt as the organizer, to Linkin for handling everything between Animax and the cosplayers, and of course to the cosplayers themselves, who made things happen with their crazy bubbly personalities.
Remember! K-On! starts airing on Animax on the 16th of this month! For Malaysians, you can catch Animax on channel 715 of Astro.

If you had spent any amount of time in the past month watching Animax (Channel 715 on Astro), you would have seen the adverts for K-On! Yes, Animax will be airing the show starting this 16th. The moeblob anime needs no introduction, but the promotion event Animax will be carrying out this Saturday sure does! (Note to Animax: you need to promote your events.)
What is this event you ask? 4 lovely cosplayers will be dressed as the characters from K-On, and they will be at Bangsar’s Jalan Telawi from 1-3pm, generally being moe and melting otaku hearts. Its a chance for you 2D obsessed people to get out in the sun and meet some real girls! Don’t miss this chance!
P.S. Remember your suntan lotion, less your pale pasty skin burns up in the current heat wave.
