Do you love Japanese anime? ( ̄▽ ̄)ノ_彡☆ (This is a Japanese emoticon btw!)

The annual AFA was back in Singapore from 11 - 13 Nov! I remember first attending this event 2 years ago.. It became a 'MUST GO!' event for me after that.
According to The Straits Times, AFA this year drew a bigger crowd, with an estimated 85,000 people who were there at Suntec Convention Hall last weekend.
