I’ll do my very best to capture/record each and every ACG events, big or small that happening not only in KK area, but also in other districts. If you have any info, please do drop it in the comment section down below, thank you. 😉
As per last year listing, I also include events that are not entirely ACG (Anime Comic & Games) event, but lies in the line of hobby and popular culture events, for example Star Wars, KanColle, Touken Ranbu, Yo-Yo, Plastic Modelling (Plamo), Board Games. I believe these kind of events should be given more exposure, one of it would be this event listing. 😉
