Anime Festival Asia is back on the 27th until the 29th of November 2015 at Singapore’s Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre! AFA 2015 brings fans six halls of anime, cosplay, gaming, and J-pop fun — including the AFA Regional Cosplay Championships, the AFA Main Stage, the Canon Mini Stage, Creators Hub and so much more! Still need a little convincing to get those tickets? Here are five great reasons to go!
ONE PUNCH MAN
Fans of this season’s hottest anime ONE PUNCH MAN are in for a special treat, as Makoto Furukawa the voice actor of Saitama comes to AFASG15! ONE PUNCH MAN is the story of Saitama, a hero who only became a hero for fun. After three years of “special” training, he’s become so strong that he’s practically invincible. In fact, he’s too strong — even his mightiest opponents are taken out with a single punch, and it turns out that being devastatingly powerful is actually kind of a bore.

Good Smile Company will have a number of product samples on display and will also have various items on sale at the event. Be sure to stop by the booth if you’re at the event! There will also be a special activity called “Nendoroid Face Challenge” where you can draw your own faces and share on your social network! Share and receive a reward!
