But before we get too excited, let’s break down their roster and see what they have to offer:

On-Stage Highlights

Cosplay Competition

AniManGaki will also host their annual Cosplay Competition this time around as always, this time judged by community-favourite cosplayers Weon Haur, Fujiwara Kazuko, and Yugana. The winning team of the competition will qualify for Comic Fiesta’s Cosplay Invitational 2017 which is exclusively invite-only.

 

AniManGaki Idol

Aside from that, they will also be having yet another AniManGaki Idol featuring  judges, Raja RFB Farouk, Huei Chan and Jasmine Minori. Let’s all give our best wishes to this year’s grand participants!


Off-Stage

AniManGaki All-Stars Arena

Infinite Carnage returns to AniManGaki and they are hosting exciting tournaments once again for the Animangaki All-Stars Arena. This time there’ll be 3 new tournaments, including Tekken 7, Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator and Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3!

 

Art Competition: Element Showdown

There will also be an art competition, more specifically, The Element Showdown. Participants will take the ever-so-awesome Kei-chan and transform him into a master of his own element. The Element Showdown will definitely be a battle of creativity and uniqueness!

Doujin Booth Directory

Doujin Booths! Can’t have a proper ACG event without them, especially with such a promising line of doujin artists setting up shop too!

 

Touhou Matsuri

The Malaysian Touhou Brigade will be making an appearance as the hosts for The Touhou Matsuri featuring the Hisoutensoku Tournament along with game showcases such as AniManGaki fan-favourite, Danmaku Challenges.
