Star Supa Comic 2018 – Announcement

re2

This is the title image from the Facebook page.

Boom! This is the current hot topic….. the buzz around town among the Anime community fans now!! Meme & 9Gag worthy images are also on the rise haha

So far nothing positive, the most I’ve seen was something neutral xD haha

Comments of “Wah! Wanna challenge CF?”, “Whachu know about Otakus?”. Too much corporate marketing lingo on the front page maybe. Who knows… the folks have not reached out to us yet, no proper media launch yet… no official launch either but it’s rolling forward.

supa re1

The screen shot of their website which is causing all this roar. LINK: https://sites.thestar.com.my/supacomic/

Since I am the one here suggesting that the possible negative or neutral response to the advert below (then again its common for most people response negative to new things or change) could be due to ‘corporate marketing lingo’, i should elaborate a bit more. Here is the text :

“BEHOLD! THE YEAR’S MOST EXCITING NEW ANIME, COSPLAY, E-GAMES & TOYS EXTRAVAGANZA IS AT HAND! A million sights & sounds as well as thousands of renowned cosplayers and enthusiasts from around the globe! Experience arguably the most anticipated comics event ever! OTAKUs UNITE!”

  1. “The year’s most exciting new ….. is at hand” – The event Facebook page want started in January Yes. However as of today, there are only 65 likes on the page (one of them me & another is us, Cosplay Fun Malaysia). And since I realist (doing my best to an optimist) I’m gonna say that the 65 of us would be the only quantifiable ones who truly know / is excited because we clicked LIKE and want to know all announcements… all news. Since I only saw the advert last week, for the first time…. I personally am not incline to say that it’s ‘this year’s more exciting new event!’ From January – September 2018, I didn’t know it existed.
  2. “A million sights & sounds as well as thousands of renowned cosplayers and enthusiasts from around the globe!” – I’m not so sure what this means or what the writer was trying to say other than it has a lot of adjectives. I don’t know how “a million sights & sounds” links to “thousands of renowned cosplayers & enthusiasts..”. Are they going to post a Guinness World Record of photos & videos of cosplayers from all over the world? Or are they anticipating thousands of cosplayers + enthusiasts from all over the world are going to come? If that’s what they mean, I’m excited and I wanna help promote 🙂
  3. “Experience arguably the most anticipated comics event ever!” – personally, I feel that’s going to be difficult to take this first-time event as ‘most anticipated …event ever’. Also great due to point 1, I just found out about it last year.
  4. OTAKUs UNITE! – I’ve read some comments taking this in a negative light. For me I’m neutral. But the general condenses from the origins, which is Japan, the term has a negative connotation. It’s like calling out NERDS UNITE! Some will be ok and some wouldn’t like this I guess haha. Oh well!

Ada apa dengan gaya in? From what I know, in writing there is a certain margin of flair & exaggeration that can be considered ‘style’. I view this ‘style’ as a marketing style lingo, as these words & visuals will also be used in materials (flyer, posters etc) during presentation to potential sponsors and clients 🙂 So sometimes if the words are not ‘gempak’ enough, it doesn’t excite the client… especially to those who do not know about ACG events.

Bottom line –  I just think the up roar is about poor copyrighting. It was more exaggeration-fantasy than factual-realistic-expectation. I am a realist (trying my best to be an optimist too) but not a language expert. So it’s just what I think… 2 cents 😀

Suggestion – Now I don’t wanna leave this with out a suggestion of a solution 🙂 In my opinion, they should dial back a bit on the adjaectives and announce more objectively 🙂 Alternatively, if they came out with a BIG BANG BANG BANG announcement like Hideo Kojima, Hayao Miyazaki and Yaya Han coming to Malaysia’s ABCDEF Event – BEHOLD! THE YEAR’S MOST EXCITING NEW ANIME, COSPLAY, E-GAMES & TOYS EXTRAVAGANZA IS AT HAND! Experience arguably the most anticipated comics event ever! OTAKUs UNITE! Straight away blow peoples with a BANG, and your tagline + benefit-of-the-doubt = ALL VALID hype hehe Honestly, i think with this kind of announcement, most off the community won’t care what you write xD hahaha Half will be excited and the other half going “Sure or not?”, “Who are these organisers?”, “Sure not scammers?” xD haha

In conclusion, I’m truly excited to hear of yet another ‘big scale’ event! The organisers are of the Star Media Group, they’re legit *thumbs up*. Being ‘legit’ and credible (Star Media Group) and not a brand new company / entity they would have a reputation to keep so all in all… I’m excited & looking forward to it 🙂

gif-website-2With already 2 brand new events this year, TAGCC (Toys Anime Games and Comic Con) and Asia Comic Con (Malaysia), I think this little announcement / surprise will be a nice finale for 2018… the cherry on the sundae… the last Event Of the Year! Singapore has that event called EOY… and ours was CF… until now.

Lots of Love to you all! Be safe and enjoy your events!!

Animangaki Celebrates 10th Anniversary

Malaysia’s 2nd largest ACG event is back and this year marks the 10th ANIMANGAKI! What started out as a first time event for the Sun-U Anime Club (SUAC) on 27 – 28 June 2009, has now become a staple August month convention event that’s drawing 18,500+ people over 2 days (2017).

The first 4 years were tough, as the SUAC club kept changing presidents each year as the students graduate. And then from the 5th year on they made the jump from Sunway College hall to Sunway Pyramid Convention Centre!

r5

Of the top 3 colleges (with ACG events) in the first decade of the millennium, only Animangaki remains consistent (without skipping a year) and thriving with their Sunway Anime Club roots in tact.

So I salute you guys! Keep up the good work team!! -The Captain-

Not only the industry has grown exponentially, the public has been made aware of the creative industry and are no longer dismissing it as a non-viable career path.”

Hence why the heightened interest is something we would like to capitalize on. This is where VAX2018 comes in; as a platform to connect people in and out of the industry, we want to build up new relationships or create new ones between creative industry players both local and overseas.”

What to expect at Asia Comic Con – Malaysia 2018?

Original article at Pop Culture Fun Malaysia here.

“What is this?” The buzzing question on every fans mind since our announcement of the event back in February this year! Scam… another Comic Con-Job… it looks like a Western Convention but is it yet another ‘comic’ event full of Japanese anime stuff? Who are the organisers? who are these people?

Related: Malaysia Comic-con Announced!

So many questions and next to no answers what so ever.

Anyways, the fans & folks are generally very nice as long as you don’t take their money (very obvious by the results of the recent general elections). Then FB sponsored ads of calling for vendors of the Malaysia chapter started popping up… then local exhibitors & vendors really started to get weary.

So I joined forces with some ‘PRO’ people to do some Jessica Jones sleuth work and this is what we gathered. As this is what we think we can share => The organisers originate from Thailand. And over there they have been in this industry for a couple of years already. So their new brand / event will be called Asia Comic Con.

Thailand will debut in June and Malaysia will debut in July. The Malaysia chapter will be managed by a local advertising agency – iHub Advertising. We received endorsement by some reputable folks so ‘PRO’ folks were satisfied to proceed to get a booth at the event.

One fail safe that would protect our hopes and dreams was the fact that the Asia Comic Con would FIRST debut in the homeland of Thailand a month before our in Malaysia. So far Thailand’s version of the page was doing a great job in announcing  and the guest was getting better and better by the day. One of the strongest factors was the announcement of  I Love Anisong (an Anime Festival Asia brand), was to hold their concert nights there. If you’ve not heard of Anime Festival Asia – AFA is by far, South East Asia’s ultimate Japanese Pop Culture experience. Began in Singapore in 2008, has now expanded to 6 other countries.

34758945_10156058740995862_11678982445465600_o_resize

Then later I spotted the Gyu Creative logos on certain promo material. So that is another strong vote of confidence. Who are Gyu Creative? They are the folks from Thailand who brought us Japan Expo Thailand & Japan Expo Malaysia! Nuff said!!

Anyways, if all this was still not enough I had to send my British Intelligence operative… Mr. Bond… James Bond …. or rather it was because he was already going to be there that I sent him xD hahaha Oh yea, and no his name was not James Bond or Simon Le Bon but John… John Gullidge! 😀

But to save my heart from hurt I have to keep my expectations low. More on Jessica later!

HYDE Acoustic Concert Tour 2018 – Malaysia (Press Conference) [在普通話中]

by Aimee for Cosplay Fun – Malaysia.

32215397_1542197969236256_361850058385129472_o出道超过25年的【他】这回将首度以个人身份来马开唱! 这位【他】是谁呢?他就是日本教皇级摇滚乐团「L’Arc~en~Ciel 彩虹」主唱HYDE。 他宣布要在5月12日于吉隆坡马华礼堂(MCA Hall)举办「HYDE ACOUSTIC CONCERT TOUR 2018 -黑弥撒亚洲巡回演唱会-大马站」,这是他出道多年来第一次以个人名义来马举办演唱会,而且吉隆坡则是东南亚唯一一站。

32257646_1542197692569617_8998294825463709696_o

HYDE于去年在圣诞节前夕与东京举办了两场名为《黑弥撒》演唱会,由于这场演出太梦幻,在海外乐迷的强烈要求下,HYDE决定走出日本,展开了亚洲巡回演唱会。 这次来马的演唱会的福利堪称「破天荒」啊! 凡购买VIP票的粉丝可与HYDE做近距离接触,参加会后击掌+团体大合照。各位您们还在等什么呢?这可是和男神近距离接触难得的机会啊! (笑)

这次HYDE是第一次来到马来西亚,问他对于马来西亚的看法时,HYDE幽默的回了一句“好热啊”。 果然我们马来西亚的天气真的是太热了!(汗) HYDE还开玩笑的说由于黑弥撒的概念是以冬天为主,他希望可以透过演唱会让马来西亚的歌迷体验一下冬天的感觉。(笑)

_DSC0179

当问到对于这次的演唱会马来西亚的歌迷可以有些什么期待呢?HYDE表示由于这次的演唱会会以弦乐為主轴,和以往的摇滚演唱会不一样,HYDE希望他的歌迷可以更加的融入他所带来的歌曲和情感。 这次的演唱会歌单包括了HYDE的个人歌曲以及彩虹、VAMPS等自己參與的团体歌曲。

KUALA LUMPUR, 11 May 2018: If you are a huge fan of all things J-Rock and if you have not been living under a gigantic rock all this while, word around the grapevine is that front line of L’Arc~en~Ciel, HYDE will be having his first ever live show in Kuala Lumpur tomorrow on the 12th of May 2018 at the MCA Hall at 8PM.

One would have hoped when would he step foot in our very own country but fan do not have to wait any longer as HYDE’s Kuro Misa tour is finally here in our very own Malaysia. Malaysia marks the only stop he will be making in his SEA leg so fan would definitely not want to miss this once in a live time experience.

Compared to his high energy lives, HYDE wants the Kuro Misa experience to be able to envelop all the listeners there despite their age, or background. His set list will feature some of his older works and his news works and of course some amazing surprises that he hopes will please the fans.

Being a fan of HYDE and L’Arc~en~Ciel for almost 15 years, this is one experience not to be missed. Whether I am sick or bedridden, nothing will stop me from supporting one of my favorite vocalist of all time. Well I am excited and can’t wait for the concert. You can expect me there tomorrow cheering my lungs out and cleaning out my wallet for all the merchandise. Get excited everyone and let’s rock out at the concert!
