It’s still very early on Day Two but you already know it was going to be a full house with the crowd of fans queueing to get into the hall. Once the doors opened, they all made their way very quickly into the hall to check out what’s on offer. Two of the most popular booths at the event were without a doubt new hit game Food Fantasy as well as the popular otome game Ikemen series by Cybird.
Food Fantasy — which is a smartphone game that lets players use spirits that represent many popular dishes to battle evil, has been a huge hit with over a million players worldwide. Equally popular is Cybird’s Ikemen series, which is a series of dating sims aimed at women, with over a dozen games with wildly varying themes, such as European royalty, American office romance, even time-travelling Japanese samurai warriors!
Kizuna AI — Japan’s most popular virtual YouTuber made her first ever Asia event appearance at C3 AFA Jakarta 2018! She was welcomed by a full house of fans, who supported her by wearing her super-cute AI-chan “Pyoko Pyoko” headbands, as well as purchasing merchandise from AI-chan’s very own specialty shop! Her other appearance at the Canon Akiba Stage was likewise met with applause and cheers, making her very first appearance at an Asian event an astounding success!
Again, the event was wrapped up by the amazing Saturday night edition of I Love Anisong! The concert offered a bumper crop of talented acts — with not just the usual four but seven amazing anisong artistes! With a line up composed of Ami Wajima, BAND-MAID, Konomi Suzuki, Mashiro Ayano, Megumi Nakajima, and TRUE — it was an unforgettable night! Portions of the concert were also livestreamed on Japanese site niconico, which wasan added bonus for fans overseas who couldn’t make it to the highly-anticipated concert.
