Manga and Anime Festival: Attack on Titan and Fairy Tail PH Edition Manga Launch

 

Manga and Anime Festival 2015_0002

 

It was an interesting weekend at the Manga and Anime Festival at Megatrade Hall 1 of SM Megamall.  It featured the Philippine book launch of the Attack on Titan and Fairy Tail manga titles.  There were special guests, contests, attractions, booths, and a cosplay competition in store for attendees, celebrating love for all things manga and anime.

Fairy Tail Cosplay Group Photoshoot

FairyTailGroupShoot_0063

 

We were more than happy to take part in a great group photoshoot set up by a group of Fairy Tail cosplayers at the Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife Center in Quezon City.  More than 30 cosplayers and more than a dozen photographers were on hand to have a chance to have great shots with a great group theme.

Jenny, one of the cosplayers who organized this little affair, said that even she was surprised with the good turnout.  There was a lot of interest in this particular photoshoot since there are a lot of enthusiasts of the Fairy Tail manga and anime franchise, and this was reflected in the excitement the participants had throughout the affair.

 

FairyTailGroupShoot_0045

 

The event started in the morning as preparations were made, as donning the costumes, doing makeup and fixing props and accessories did take considerable time.  Shooting began in earnest early in the afternoon, as photographers took the opportunity to take photos of the cosplayers who were ready.  They went all over the park for their shoots and with so many cosplayers and photographers, it could get quite hectic at times.

More than the opportunity to have great photos taken, it was a chance for the participants to enjoy themselves.  Many made new friends and you’d see groups smiling and laughing and goofing off, enjoying each other’s company.

The day ended with the group shots to serve as remembrances of a truly fun day for everyone, the smiles on everyone’s faces an indication of a successful event.  As the sun set, everyone parted ways, already wishing for another fun photoshoot in the future.

Many thanks to Jenny and all the others who organized this affair.  Congratulations on giving the chance for everyone to have a great time despite being their first time to organize a shoot.  We wish for more in the future.

IMG_8311

The entire staff of arkadymac.com goes full force in bringing you highlights from all three days of Ozine Fest 2013 held at SM Megamall. Nyanbu, Stephanie and Obito-kun brave the front lines to bring you all the great action.

 

 Day 1

IMG_8823

Nyanbu has it tough as he has to cover all three days of Ozine Fest 2013 at SM Megamall over the weekend.  Luckily, our wonderful partner Eiri came in as Rise Kujikawa to help the beleaguered and overwhelmed Nyanbu out.  First day started with a bang with Battle of the Bands and Anime Karaoke, with great prizes going to the winners.  Of course there were booths and stalls, like a wishing shrine, matsuri exhibit, a maid cafe, a host club, tarot reading, and a whole lot more.  Lots of fun and excitement were in store for the visitors, with special guests gracing the event.

Nyanbu likes to go on and on but it’s three in the morning and has to work in a few hours so he can go to Day 2 later.  So here are some photos of the event.  Thanks for all your support and please enjoy the rest of our coverage. Please stay tuned.

Day 2

IMG_9185

No rest for the weary kitten as Nyanbu brings you our special coverage of Ozine Fest Day 2 at SM Megamall held over the weekend. Absolutely lots of people attending the event and an amazing multitude of cosplayers were there to be seen.  There were so many cosers that Nyanbu had a hard time keeping up. Ah, must be that age thing.  Or maybe it was because he was constantly chasing Sean Vergil, a rather hyperactive but very cute little Son Goku.

As Nyanbu will be off to work soon, we must apologize for giving you this humble installment of pictures but we promise to update the post real soon, okay? And please stay tuned for our Day 3 coverage, by far the best coverage we ever had.

Thank you for all your support.

Day 3, Part 1

OzineFestD3Pt1_004

Ozine Fest 2013 is undeniably the biggest cosplay event this summer, with thousands of visitors over the three day-affair, filling the SM Megamall Megatrade Halls to to capacity.  So to give you the best possible coverage of this amazing event, the entire senior officers and staff of arkadymac.com went to Ozine Fest in full force and ready to tackle the unforgiving crowds, and the hordes of screaming yaoi fangirls and crazed otaku.

OzineFestD3Pt1_003

And because giving our loyal friends, visitors, and readers the best coverage possible is our priority, we have enlisted the services of our newest cosplay correspondent, the lovely and genki Stephanie as Hatsune Miku.  It is with open arms (and a sigh of relief) that we welcome Stephanie into the group as she has distinguished herself well on the field of combat despite being only her first field assignment for the blog.  We’ll have a special feature about Stephanie herself real soon so please stay tuned for that as well.

OzineFestD3Pt1_005

Lots of attractions and events going on in and around the venue, so the staff had to work thrice as hard to bring you the highlights.  Xtian Mack was in charge of public relations,  Obito-kun providing attention and publicity for the site, and Stephanie being our cover girl for guests and cosplayers alike.  Special acknowledgement to our tensai photographer, Buraimaku, for his amazing snapshots of the event.

We hope you enjoy our special coverage of Ozine 2013, but we urge you to come back in the next few days as we’ll be posting more great photos.  Thank you all for your support.

Day 3, Part 2

OzineFestD3Pt2_005

With the recently concluded Ozine Fest 2013 undeniably being the biggest cosplay event this summer, we actually had to separate our Day 3 coverage into several parts.  With lots of attractions going on at any given time within the Megatrade halls of SM Megamall that Sunday, people were just in a frenzy taking part in the event.  Ozine Fest also attracted literally hundreds of cosplayers to the venue, which was why it was a tall order just to keep up with them and bringing you, our beloved readers, our special coverage of the event.

IMG_8288

We are thankful that the sweet and genki Stephanie has stepped up to the challenge and lent us a hand, being our field correspondent on Part 1, the previous post.

Now Kaloy, a.k.a. Obito-kun, takes charge in bringing you Part 2 of our Day 3 coverage.  He was quite a hit with the people himself as more than a hundred asked to take pictures of him and with him.  He was up to the challenge as we bring you more highlights in the continuation of our special Ozine 2013 coverage.  And of course, we would have been lost without our tensai photoman Buraimaku taking splendid snapshots of the event.  Special thanks to Mika for her unwavering support as well.  Please tune in within the next few days for more updates and more photos. Thank you for all your support.
