A quick look back at past Anime Festival Asia (AFA).
In 2008, the first ever AFA was staged at Suntec City Convention Halls, the same venue till today and hopefully for the future as well. Back then, the convention hall was much smaller, lesser booths and lesser showcase. Some booths wasn’t even anime related as well.
The stage was within the same convention hall together with the booths and was very small as well. The concert guests were Mizuki Ichirou and May’n. Mizuki Ichirou even commented he wish the stage can be bigger. He got his wish as the following years on, AFA just keeps on getting bigger and bigger.
To date, 2011 is the 4th AFA in Singapore. Next year we will see the AFA brand travel to neighbouring countries in South East Asia.
The above are the ticket counterfoil from 2008 and 2011. It’s my valuable collection, like a piece of memento that shows that I have been to the event.
The above are the rest in my collection, including Media passes from 2009 to 2011 and event guide. I don’t have the 2008 and 2009 event brochure. I am not sure if I threw them away or there are none in the first place. ^^;
