Summer is almost here, and what better way for lovers of Japanese culture to welcome the season than to enjoy a fun-filled festival. Coming this March 31 is Hinomoto’s Natsu Matsuri: A Japanese Summer Festival at Ateneo de Manila University’s Bellarmine Field. With free entrance to to the event, everyone can get to experience a traditional Japanese summer festival through fun games, great food, and exciting live performances.
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.
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.
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.
