Last Sunday, the Anime Festival Asia [AFA] 2014 attracted a spectacular crowd of visitors. Held over 3 days from 5th to 7th December 2014 at Suntec Convention & Exhibition Centre, the myriad display of anime exclusive merchandises really left the visitors spoilt for choices. Not to mention, countless visitors were attracted to attend this yearly event. The spontaneity of the different cosplayers posing for photographers and happily exchanging coscards have certainly made the exhibition area much more lively and fun.
