6th Anime Festival Asia (AFA) 2013 was held at the Suntec Singapore International Convention and Exhibition Centre from November 8 to 10. The event attracted over 85,000 J-culture fans last year, and has been the biggest Anime & Idol Fes in Southeast Asia. An area that can experience the atmosphere of Akihabara and Japanese entertainment was newly arranged from this year.

In Singapore AFA, as well as other festivals around the world, various cosplayers are everywhere, exchanging information and having fan meeting. It seems AFA has become an important place also for friendship between cosplayers.
