Kore Yamazaki at Comic Fiesta 2017
Malaysian’s largest Anime Comics & Games event RETURNS to the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre in 2017!! This was among the many worthy headlines for CF2017. However, what I would want like to write about is that Kore Yamazaki sensei (creator The Ancient Magus’ Bride) made an appearance at Comic Fiesta 2017 courtesy of ANIPLUS Asia!!
So firstly, it is a very special (and rare) treat to have the chance to meet a manga creator on your own home country! Our first real opportunity came in 2016 when the Manga Festival (CoFesta) suddenly was announced & Malaysia fans got to the chance to meet / greet / autograph from Ryoko Kui, Kosuke Fujishima, Rino Mizuho and Naoshi Komi. But that was a one-and-done thing as no news of a repeat 2017 event or it’s linked event JPOP Signature which was a part of a bigger event called JAPAN WEEKEND.
I’ve been in the local ACG scene for about 12 years now & it’s already nothing of a surprise with the number of one-and-done events, fake event organisers or events just plainly disappearing off the list the following year. I don’t about the average fan but The Captain is pretty used to it and the words of wisdom are “enjoy it while you can, don’t wait for next year as you don’t know what will happen next year!!”. Case and point is ANIMAX Carnival Malaysia 2017! 😀
So fans of Kore Yamazaki who came for the meet & greet session, WELL DONE because you braved the crowd & the comfort of simply NOT GOING TO CF… to come down to KLCC meet her!! Who knows when you might have this chance again! This video is a salute to you all.
A big thanks to ANIPLUS Asia for bringing her, at no cost to us fans, here in Malaysia!! Here are some other happenings at the ANIPLUS Asia booth at Comic Fiesta 2017!

About The Ancient Magus’ Bride
“A story to know the beauty of the world”
Hatori Chise has lived a life full of neglect and abuse, devoid of anything resembling love. Far from the warmth of family, she has had her share of troubles and pitfalls. Just when all hope seems lost, a fateful encounter awaits her. When a man with the head of a beast, wielding strange powers, obtains her through a slave auction, Chise’s life will never be the
