For the uninformed, Artbox is Bangkok’s widely popular container market famous for its novelty (read: hipster) foods and creatives retailing everything from art to fashion.

Earlier this year, Artbox returned to Singapore over two weekends and housed over 400 booths at the Bayfront Event Space.

Locals and foreigners alike got to pose for OOTDs to their hearts content against the many art installations and chill out to mellow beats late into the night.

C3 AFA 2018: A taste of Akihabara in Singapore

Published

on

Since the days of Naruto in 480p to present day Boruto in HD, Anime Festival Asia (AFA) has been a staple for local fans of anime and Japanese pop culture. The annual affair has grown tremendously since it first reached our shores back in 2008, solidifying its status as a pilgrimage of sorts, akin to the wonders of Akihabara.

Back for its tenth anniversary, AFA 2018 proved to be the best its ever been with performances from a star-studded lineup at the I Love Anisong concert series, renown cosplayers and more exclusive merchandise than ever before. Didn’t get to attend? Fret not, here’s everything you missed from the greatest anime exhibition of the year.

Walk in and you’ll be greeted by this massive Gundam model. I don’t know about you but the sooner we get actual functional Gundams the better!

Fans of Gunpla were also in for a treat with this huge selection. There’s even more selections at the back!

Of course, AFA wouldn’t be complete without the game taking Japan (and frankly, the world) by storm. Whether you love or hate the Gacha mechanics of the game, it’s hard to argue with Fate Grand Order’s (FGO)’s success. Staying true to the game mechanics, at the center of the exhibition was a summoning circle where fans could place their phones to summon in-game characters.

Gaming was also a huge part of AFA this year. Apart from FGO, Honkai Impact also featured a booth where players could compete in time trials. Scattered around the exhibition were also other games such as Taiko Drum Master, Touhou and even PUBG.

My favourite part of AFA though, was undoubtedly the food. It was like a taste of Japan without actually flying there!

The Day Stage also featured a ton of prominent celebrities and guests, from Eri Sasaki (pictured) to the creators of Pop Team Epic and even famous cosplayers such as Hakken (pictured).

And this pretty much sums up AFA in one picture. It’s a celebration of all things Japan. It’s quirky, fun, and fans can be another side of themselves, even if it’s for just a day.

After successful runs in 2015 and 2016, local indie fans were left disappointed when Neon Lights took a break last year.
