The [R] @ Animaku no Hibi 4 - The Second ANH I attend!

Animaku no Hibi is a yearly J-Fest event held in the Bintaro area in Indonesia. This is my second year in attending the event, and this year they went to the different direction; if last year it was held in STAN University, this year it's Bintaro Plaza's turn!

ANH4 - It doesn't look big, but it's worth the performances!
I arrived there at 11 am due to... well, I just want to go at that time. Actually, there's another event I'd like to attend, but since it's too far, I dropped the plan to go there... :(. However, there are things that convinced me that attending ANH is still better than crying for not attending the Hobby Fest. Wanna know what are they?

Song Covers

This is one of its Audition bands, Cassada, covering Acid Black Cherry's Re:birth
The moment the start of the Re:birth song commence, I started to swarm the stage. F-yeah! It's that one song from Another Century's Episode, which I haven't played it but managed to try just one stage, and that's the ACE 3: Final where the intro is Hitomi Shimatani's Shinku...

But, the real action got more intense starting at 3pm, where there are more bands with their own unique styles. The one band that got everyone screaming and hopping is the one whose members dressed in One Piece clothings (the singer wore Luffy's costume), but I didn't remember the band's name. What I remember is that they were singing Haruka Kanata from Naruto and a One Piece theme.


Some Baka to Test ripper guys that wanted to kill me!
So you think not attending a much bigger J-Fest is a sin? Think again! You haven't seen the cosplays here @ ANH! Although there aren't many cosplayers in this event than there are in that other event, some used their entrance to make people want to take pics with. Unlike last year, there isn't on-stage cosplay competition, but there is a cos-street competition, which is better than having no cosplay event ever... :v

However, I shall thank the guys who convinced me that ANH is a right choice:
ORE! SANJOU! ZX and Den-O Liner!
That's right, folks! They're Kamen Riders ZX and Den-O Liner! They're the ones that kept me going for the event! But there's one cosplayer whose entrance is so spectacular, everyone wanted to take pics with him.

DAT'S SHADOWMOON WITH BATTLEHOPPER FROM KAMEN RIDER BLACK OMFG!!! This could be once in a lifetime Shadowmoon invade Bintaro. I believe that there won't be cosplayers whose entrance is as spectacular as this, not even that one event. And since I'm a lucky person to take pic with him...

"Now, count up your sins!" ~The guy who doesn't henshin (transform)...

Some Other Random Takes

A really big papercraft really needs a big treatment, like Liger Zero from Zoids
Some Yu-Gi-Oh!-playing dudes fighting their rivals with their cards. It's a battle of strategies, everyone!
Random papercraft moment where WarGreymon was staring  Command Wolf and Pikachu was sniffing WarGrey's ass. Sneaky Pikachu... :v
Another random moment where Pikachu, Terriermon, and WarGreymon are attending Zorro's funeral. Zorro, are you still alive? Don't tell me you're dead by now...
It's good to be back to this event, really. I think this year's ANH is much better with the appearance of Kamen Riders, papercrafts, more cover songs, and greater stands, although last year's venue is better because of the area size and cosplay on-stage competition. Other than that, I'm thankful that I've made a right choice.

But I can't end the blog without this...
