At long last, I finally have the chance to experience a weekend with my all-time favourite Japanese anime TV channel.
This is Animax, a Tokyo-based satellite TV network that specializes in giving you the best content in the world of Japanese anime. Founded back in 1998, it is now available across 62 different countries up to date. In 2004, they launched Animax Asia. Think of it as Animax for the Southeast Asian viewers.
So, you might be wondering why I am suddenly bringing this up?
Welcome to Animax Carnival Malaysia 2014. For those of you who are not familiar with this event, this event – which was organized by Animax Asia with support from the satellite TV service provider Astro – had started out in 2012. For this year’s third edition, it was held inside the Mid Valley Exhibition Centre at Mid Valley Megamall, located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.
Now I shall be honest with you. This is actually my first ever outing of this particular event. I had never heard of such event before. So this is quite a new experience to me. Anyway, going to an event organized by my favourite anime channel has already made me jumping in excitement.
So, what’s in store?
Before I am entering the exhibition center, I was given an Animax branded free gift and this little postcard. This card will entitled me to win an anime merchandise which can be redeemed at the very end of the booth, providing that you had successfully passed all the stations above. Now let me explain what are those stations all about.
