Another unforgettable Cosplay Mania has ended this year and for sure everyone is getting ready and is very excited for next year’s event. In case you missed the event, here are the highlights:
Sizzling JAM Concerts
This year’s JAM Concerts were opened by Johannie Velasco, the 2019 JPOP Anime Singing Contest Grand Champion. She sang anime songs that really awaken the hearts of the fans who attended the concert. This was followed by the performances of Asaka and May’n that are both from Nagoya, Japan. They’ve built their solid followers in the country through their love for the culture.
On the second day, another Pinoy group opened the concert. Seinshun Kakumei, a Manila-based JPOP cover group graced the event with their dazzling dance moves inspired by their idol groups like AKB 48, S/Mileage, AAA, 9nine, E-girls, etc. From a dance performance, the audience was also entertained by Japanese DJ Yasutaka Nakata. He’s also a well-known record producer, composer and song-writer who debuted with the single “Sakura”. Then a Japanese pop rock band Myth & Roid rock the stage with their famous songs like L.L.L., Voracity, Styx Helix and a lot more.
Electrifying Fan Meetings
If you are a hardcore otaku and Japanese artist’s follower then for sure you did not miss this chance to meet in flesh your idol! This experience was really worth the time, effort and payment. In this once in a lifetime opportunity fans met their idols, had small talks with them, got a chance to get their signatures and profess their love for them. It was really an electrifying experience for a diehard fanatic.
An anime convention won’t be an anime convention without the merchandises. This year was exceptional because a lot of memorabilia’s that you can buy on the event itself. It was an otaku haven and also for those who just want to have cute (kawaii) things. Eventurers always say that if there’s an anime convention coming up you should save up because you’ll not want to see all those good stuff and not being able to buy one. So, for the upcoming Cosplay Mania 2020, save up!
