Now on its 7th year, “The Best of Anime” convention is held every year in Manila, Philippines.
It has undeniably become a haven of fans and enthusiasts for the past six momentous years. Last year, the two-day event had approximately 30,000 visitors who trooped to the venue to experience and witness once more what “The Best of Anime” showcases and offers – an impressive roster of talents, cosplayers, activities, and much more.
Highly-anticipated activities during the Event include the different competitions held namely the All-Star Cosplay Competition, Inter-School Cosplay Competition Championship, the Best of Anime Superstar Karaoke Competition, and the Battle of the Bands. The Convention also holds various demos and workshops like Voice-Dubbing Workshop, Cosplay Makeup Workshop, and Kendo Demo, among others.
Moreover, the Convention extended its horizons by bringing Japanese artists in the country for the past four years, thus setting the bar higher for the local Anime Convention scene.
This year, “The Best of Anime 2016” promises to be another exciting Event as some of the big names in the world of cosplay will be gracing the event, notably, Misa (Taiwan), Liui (Philippines), Sara Tousa-Bao (Singapore), Jun Kaise (Japan), Yau (Hong Kong), Suzume (Philippines) and Chun WX (Philippines). Likewise, popular Japanese artists namely INKT with Koki Tanaka, former member of the idol group KAT-TUN managed by Johnny’s Entertainment and, of course, up-and-coming AniSong singer Haruna Luna will be performing for the very first time in the Philippines duing the Convention!
This year’s biggest fan gathering will have the fan clubs of INKT, Jin Akanishi, Yamapi, Baby Metal, the Gazette and One OK Rock gearing up to showcase their own respective activities for “The Best of Anime 2016”.
Have fun and creatively express your ideas in a venue full of imaginative minds and possibilities!
