Xtian Mack had a smashing great time covering Oh-No! Manga Cosplay Camp 2: The Coin & Flour Saga at the SMX Convention Center Hall 1, SM Mall of Asia last weekend.  Again enthusiasts of all kinds found their way to this event to celebrate the many enjoyable aspects of Japanese culture in a setting that was both festive and engaging. Helping us out on this assignment is the helpful and cheery Ghost Rider, who (unwittingly) finds himself as special guest correspondent for this special arcadymac.com coverage.

There were lots of booths and attractions that awaited all participants, with freebies generously given away by sponsors and exhibitors.  Stalls were open to cater to wide-ranging interests, from comics, to manga, to toys, to cosplay accessories.  Special guests were also on hand to give more flair to this already exciting affair.

There were great displays as well, like the giant Gundam model, the giant Mogu Mogu bottle and a wooden replica of Tokyo Tower, things that really made the entire experience of going to the Oh-No! Manga Cosplay Camp even more unique.

A great lineup of games, bands, video screenings, game demos kept the crowd entertained throughout most of the day, with the highlight being the cosplay competition that featured a variety of categories, from anime and manga, mecha, Western, games, and even a Vocaloid division.  Great prizes were given away to the deserving winners.

As with such grand events, costrippers of all kinds were in abundance in and around the event and photographers and the general pubic were treated to a spectacle of epic proportions, with literally hundreds of cosplayers posing for an appreciative audience.

We note that the venue was spacious enough to accommodate the large crowd that was in attendance, and the event went without much difficulty, so we commend the organizers of the event for a ob well done.
