Ume here! It’s been a while since I’ve last updated, university has just started for me so I’ve been busy.
If you remember the posts from several months back, where I raved deliriously about Vocaloid Night , you might guess my little routine of checking into the V_N Ustream lives every third Wednesday of the month, and also visiting mogra’s stream once in a while. I’ve developed quite the appetite for vocaloid and anisong-based dance music!
And here comes ZANEEDS, back to Singapore! They’ve had done a few DJ lives at conventions in other countries (Most recently at Anime Expo), and having heard DJ Torinos’s mixes from their website, I decided that I really wanted to hear them DJ live.
The nice thing about ZANEEDS is that they pick songs that they feel best fit the country, or the audience tastes. This makes them very suited for performances overseas, as they can deliver a general sort of all-purpose fun mix most Vocaloid fans can identify with.
So when I heard the news that STGCC would be inviting ZANEEDS for their own Vocaloid DJ night, I could hardly contain my excitement! I had the lightsticks left over from Miku Party, and they were certainly more than enough ammunition for the very first Vocaloid DJ set to be held in Singapore.3 comments
With news finalised previously on nkds’s post early last month, said mystery guest turns out to be Suara! The first few songs from her that lead an impression to me were those from Utawarerumono. Others that were particularly memorable were songs from White album and Kimikiss.
Of course, who could forget her memorable duet with Mizuki Nana of the song ‘Shin Ai’ at Animelo 2009? Ticketing information will be available soon, but I reckon that it’ll be affordable.
Not forgetting guests, official WS player ‘The Mash’ returns our red dot of an island to attend ACME, spreading glorious ways to get yourself hooked onto Weib Schwarz, with Singapore’s largest WS tornament too date. A 200-man tourney, how about that!
Doujin aspects of ACME aren’t forgotten either. Aside from the many doujin groups hawking their pretty and awesome art on nicely created goods such as posters and artbooks, famed doujinshi PLUM will have a booth, selling exclusive merchandise at ACME! More of comiket right at your doorstep. *grin*
Local doujin group CDS will collaborate with KKnM to bring you a special Touhou doujin project titled Elysium. Dedicated Touhou fans shouldn’t miss this out!
Not to mention, KKnM will continue to bring more comiket exclusive limited goodies for all doujin-loving fans out there, so be sure to queue early to avoid disappointment!
ACME III will be held at Suntec Convention Centre, Rooms 325-326 and Foyer, moments after Summer Comiket on the 27th of August. Mark it onto your event calender already!
I’ve just landed today, and spent the day going around confirming routes to get to various venues. This trip, I will be going to the Internet Independent Live Fes, and Mikupa 2011 (!!!!!!!!). I’ll try to bring as many updates as I possibly can!
For now, have some shortcake:No comments
The ladies in Bonpro will be attending the RSVP press conference! Wonder what guests and what sort of activities do they have this time? Hopefully the loli and the plum will bring us back some good news!
Me? I will be working at that time. =(
It looks like this year’s AFA will be on the 13th and 14th of November! And this year, the varsity students are spared for the clash in timing, but not those taking O’s, however.
The last few days are usually MCQs anyway.
Waited too long for this announcement? Here’s a video recapping AFA 2009′s highlights:
I didn’t do a post before when they announced it to be held in SG in November, because I’ll kinda expect it to be roughly on the same venue/date. However, the change in the days specifically was rather (for the lack of a better word) unexpected.
Many issues that visitors from previous AFA had were the hike in price – many are worried that this year’s tickets might continue to double further. Personally, I don’t think there will be a hike, or even if there is, it won’t be overly high. Unless of course, this year’s guest list and programs are good enough to justify it. AFA08/AFA09 had entrance fees mirroring each event’s quality; in fact, I thought that the entrance fee for AFA08 was rather cheap, at $5/day and $8 for both days.
What I’m still surprised at the amount of responses of people wanting JAM Project in – I sure do hope third’s a charm. I’m sure iron2000 would agree too.4 comments
To extend the thread of my previous post about Mascot Parade, there’s a particular one that’s pretty new amongst events in general (aside for AFA09):
Mascot Parade tournaments
Various retailers of Weiss Schwarz will be sending in teams where each individual battle it out for the glory for the shop they are playing for in this hot blooded standard tournament. The winner will win a Champion Shield for the shop he or she represents and the top 3 individual players will win individual medals.
Players Registration: team of 5 players per shop, by shop invitation only
