Animax Carnival Malaysia 2017

animaxcarnivalHey everyone, This is the Captain and I just wanted to write a short message… in which most of you already know the answer too.

IS THERE ANIMAX CARNIVAL MALAYSIA 2017?

  1. I think most of you have already seen the buzz on Facebook 2 weeks ago about Animax Carnival Malaysia 2017. At least 3 different people have PM the official FB page (https://www.facebook.com/animaxasiatv) and have gotten replies that there will no Animax Carnival this year.  Yes, the people running the page are just moderators / admin blah blah… but still they can’t reply with permission from Animax Asia themselves… so again – I think this is a firm NOT Animax Carnival Malaysia 2017.
  2. Despite having Animax Carnival Malaysia from 2012 – 2016, their announcement always came fairly late (compared to other conventions) which is around end of February, for an event which usually takes place on the last weekend of March. So as time passes… end of Feb… and now – the beginning of March… it is safe to say (together with point 1. ) that there will be no Animax Carnival Malaysia 2017.

Now, whether there will be an Animax Carnival Malaysia 2018 or whether there will never be another one? We really don’t know. However, if we Animax gets in touch with us… or their official spokes person, we will be sure to let you all know by announcing it on our FB page or here on our blog.

For those of you still waiting for an official announcement / statement from Animax regarding the Carnival not happening… you guys might be waiting a long time xD Personally I don’t think they ‘owe’ us any announcement or any explanation on the “why”s of this & that. If I was the boss, I would but then again, I am not.

So everyone, just set your eyes on the next event closes to your location and prepare for that. The list of events in Malaysia just keeps on growing & growing so don’t worry on that part 🙂 The reach of these cosplay events also keep growing! It’s already a staple for (outside the Klang Valley) states Penang, Kuantan, Melaka, Johor Bahru, Kluang, Ipoh, Seremban, Kota Kinabalu, Kuching and as of last year even Miri!! 🙂 So till the next event, have fun everyone!

NOTE – *The Captain started collaborating with Animax Asia at the Inuyasha: The Final Act event at Berjaya Times Square in 2009. Later, he was hired to run the cosplay competition of the first ever Animax Carnival Malaysia 2012.*

It was certainly a long but exciting 2016 and even before the year is over, much news of 2017 events were already popping up! The Ultraman Returns show was the first sign for us to consider putting up the 2017 events list early since it really runs till the turn of the new year! Then next “SIGN” involved Genting again!! Resorts World Genting got involve to host ESL One on the first weekend of the new year!! Oh wow! So here is a very early start of the 2017 Malaysia ACG / Pop Culture Events List!

You can BOOKMARK this page, as we will not be changing the URL this year. Please come back to visit as the list will be updated from time to time. Please support & ‘LIKE’ our FB page to get more frequent updates and interesting reads.

As usual the events listed in GREY are NOT YET CONFIRMED or TO BE ANNOUNCED but we are hoping they will have them again this year 🙂 Do feel free to contact us [cosplayfun.my@gmail.com] if you would like your event to be listed or unlisted. We want to give the community something to look forward to!

A BIG THANK YOU to all the folks from all over the world for visiting & re-visiting our page. We wish you a very prosperous & blessed 2017 to you all!!

Lots of Geek Love!

Event List 2016


Hi Everyone! Welcome to 2016!!

Thank you for the 94,000+ visit to our little blog. The flag counter on the right is now 30 months old has continued to be a good monitor to see where you folks are from. Even more to gauge the number of new first time visitors here. Cosplay-Fun was created to support & promote cosplay in Malaysia first… and I’m very glad hasn’t stopped there in just Malaysia. The is now our 6th year & with the exponential growth in number of cosplayers… I think about 60% of cosplayers will even remember who The Captain cosplayed let alone who The Captain is. Ironically, 2016 will officially mark my 10th year in the cosplay community! allen cosplay

Anyways, starting & running this effort was never about becoming famous… or popular or even rich! It was about encouraging a passionate, positive & often misunderstood culture of cosplay. And when I mean cosplay I want to include everyone… from the guy with a life-presever + cap… posing like he is ‘out-of-time’ (Marty McFly), to the girl in an orange skirt + turtle neck sweater & black frame glasses (Velma from Scooby Doo) to the Mikasa (AoT), Miku, Luffy, Naruto, Mecha – the anime folks!

With this heart in mind Cosplay-Fun has delved into many facets of the community & scene. By far, our most exciting but challenging tasks was strifing to do what has not been done before example being the First Ever Cosplay Contingent to march in the Hari Wilayah Parade! Gathering the largest number of Batman & Gotham City villains at an official DC event etc. But on the other hand we also paid the price for attempting such things. The greatest contention comes from the very community you are helping! How typical?

Anyways, enough of the struggles, battles & travel tales of Obi Wan Kenobi – it’s time for Old Hermit Ben haha here is the new spiffy event list for 2015. It looks kind of short now but believe me there will be much added to the list. #MalaysiaACGEventsList2016 #EventsList2016 #CosplayEvents2016 #MalaysiaCosplay2016 #PopCultureEvents

Please come back to this page to check as the list will be updated from time to time & the link might change 🙂 Please support & ‘LIKE’ our FB page to get more frequent updates.

As usual the events listed in GREY are NOT YET CONFIRMED or TO BE ANNOUNCED but we are hoping they will have them again this year 🙂 Do feel free to contact us [cosplayfun.my@gmail.com] if you would like your event to be listed or unlisted. We want to give the community something to look forward too 🙂

THANKS FOR A GREAT 2015 & HERE’S TO A BETTER 2016!!

Event List 2015

Thank you for 84,000 visits to our little blog. The flag counter, which was added just 18 months ago, has been a good monitor to see where you folks are from. Cosplay-Fun was created to support & promote cosplay in Malaysia first… and I’m very glad hasn’t stopped there. The numbers from the flag counter app has been a constant encouragement, to the me especially. It is good to know that despite only 5,500+ following our Facebook Page… there are about 40,000+ Malaysians visiting this blog. I’m also glad to see our neighbours Singapore, Japan, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand and further off Australia (Aussie Aussie Aussie) noticing us. A real pleasant surprise is that the 2nd most viewers to our blog hail all the way from the US of A!! Not forgetting… kudos to Europe too!! flag counter

Anyways, here is the new spiffy event list for 2015. It looks kind of short now but believe me there will be much added to the list.

Please come back to this page to check as the list will be updated from time to time & the link might change 🙂 Please support & ‘LIKE’ our FB page to get more frequent updates.

As usual the events listed in GREY are NOT YET CONFIRMED or TO BE ANNOUNCED  but we are hoping they will have them again this year 🙂 Do feel free to contact us [cosplayfun.my@gmail.com] if you would like your event to be listed or unlisted. We want to give the community something to look forward too 🙂


It’s the turn of the year – Thank you for 2014 & here’e to an even better 2015! – The Captain –

ANIMAX LIVE! Concert Malaysia 2015

Oh wow! Not only is the ANIMAX Carnival back in Malaysia for 2015 but ANIMAX is bringing a whole new chapter to the event… and hopefully, a whole new era of music too!

They just dropped this bomb (news) on Friday that not only is ANIMAX having their usual guest music performer but 3. Our hopes is that this is just the mini installment of what will shape up to be a full fledged ANIMAX MUSIX concert!! huhu!

SO WHAT’S HAPPENING?

 

RM20? Are you kidding me? TAKE MY MONEY!! 😀

SO WHO IS ON THE CONCERT LIST?

ELISA made her music debut in October 2007, with “euphoric field”, the opening theme song of ef – a tale of memories..

Since then, ELISA has also performed theme songs for notable anime such as VALVRAVE The Liberator, The World God Only Knows, The irregular at magic high school, and A Certain Scientific Railgun.

[I saw her debut performance at AFASG13. She is tall, soft spoken and demure… but when she started singing… OH MY! She had gusto to blow the crowd back a few feet with her stunning voice. Back then she had a limited song list but now, much has changed.]

Mami Kawada is known for her music style of fusing rock with trance. Her first anime song release was for “Please Teacher!” back in 2002. Since then, she has been performing theme songs of notable animes such as Hayate the Combat Butler, Shakugan no Shana, and Tokyo Ravens.

May’n, a household name within the anime music scene. She has been regularly invited to perform at large anime concerts and festivals across Asia. Notable for being the singing voice of Sheryl Nome from “Macross Frontier”. Other hit anime theme songs performed by May’n includes Btooom!, Accel World, and Inari, Kon Kon, Koi Iroha.

[You can’t really get enough of May’n. She’s an amazing artist and just a fun person to be with. ANIMAX Carnival 2013 was so special for the fans as they were allowed so close to her in her Q&A session & performance. And I’m not just meaning her local fans but her fans who flew down from Japan to Malaysia for that performance!]

GET YOUR TICKETS HERE – at TICKETPRO!

The Official ANIMAX LIVE! Concert Page!

Firstly, a big thank you to ANIMAX, the artist managers and sponsors for making this happen. Malaysia is VERY hungry for J-POP or J-ROCK music but so far it has been most unfortunate to have found “FAKE” event organizers, con-men and other opportunist who are incapable of working hard but want to exploit the passionate fans.

I know who you are and I remember! You fellas might not feel anything by what you have done and generally people forget very quickly… but to shed some light on the bigger picture – you KILLED the chance for a whole country to enjoy J-POP / J-ROCK concerts for years to come. We may get a break here & there but we have not truly recovered. I worked so hard for many years trying to make more things happen for this community only to be left in a worst position than when it began.

Thankfully, all things heal in time. Some maybe longer than others but all things heal in time. So for me, this concert is a sign of hope that things may be the beginning to change.

 

To the organizers and the security team for the concert, GET READY! The entire shopping mall is going to be ROCKING on Sunday, 29 March 2015 from 3pm!!

To our guest artist and managers from Japan – Welcome to Malaysia! And let me introduce you to the EXTREMELY energetic and passionate Malaysia Fans!!

To those going – Have fun guys! It’s time to celebrate and enjoy some ROCKING music. Watch out for one another and be courteous  to the person next to you.

The Captain – signing off with lotsa love!


ANIMAX Carnival Malaysia 2015 – NIPS Cosplay Competition

The ANIMAX Carnival is back in KL for the fourth year – bigger and better! For the community, it has already become the staple “1st quarter” (of the year) BIG event to look forward to. I mean who else to celebrate Anime with than ANIMAX? Last year the ANIMAX Carnival took on a very unlikely location, but with a very much welcomed guest booth – ODEX from Singapore. I particularly was very favourable because ODEX carries the official licensed K-ON! merchandise in which I am a big fan haha!
