August 2012 Updates

As the weeks draw near to Hari Raya Aidilfitri… the anticipation also builds for us to meet up at the next big ACG event marked on our yearly calender ANIMANGAKI by the Sunway Uni Anime Club. This is the 4th installment & by it’s first 2 years… it was destined for greater things. Normally AMG (in short) takes place in the hall & class rooms of SunU campus, but this year they get their UPGRADE!! They get the the ‘big brother’ hall hahaha ūüėÄ This year, AMG gets HALL3, Sunway Pyramid Convention Centre. This convention centre previously held the BEST Comic Fiesta (08 & 09) experiences to date (just our opinion).
