UPDATE: This is an April Fool’s Joke for 2016.

Philippine anime and cosplay fans are in for a treat as Manila becomes the fourth official location for the Anime Festival Asia Regional Circuit! AFAPH is slated for the 29th and 30th of February 2107 at the SMX Manila Function Rooms 6 to 10 in Pasay City!

AFAPH will feature mini events and special exhibitions by major Japanese companies and SEA regional licensees, the Philippine Finals of the AFA Regional Cosplay Championships 2107, and the very first I LOVE ANISONG concert in the Philippines!

The Philippine Finals of the AFA Regional Cosplay Championships pits cosplay pairs from around the country against each other in a test of crafting skills and acting prowess. This prestigious event will be judged by internationally renowned cosplayers KÄNÄMË⛧ and ~霊華~!

I LOVE ANISONG @ AFA PH will feature a stellar line-up of acts, including Galactic Fairy Sheryl Nome, all-girl underworld garage band Girls Dead Monster, and for a special two-night-only event — a reunion concert by the original members of µ’s!

Ticketing tiers and availability will be announced soon. AFA World members will have exclusive Early Bird Access to VVVVVIP Packages and a Members-Only Meet-and-Greet event with the I LOVE ANISONG artistes. Stay tuned!
