    Wishlist for AFA '09

    Post by mazatsushi on Sat Oct 03, 2009 12:20 am

    AFA '09 is almost upon us!

    Swore to myself that I have to get a certain t-shirt the moment I laid my eyes it. Hopefully it is available for sale during AFA.

    if you're on a budget...u could probably print a lot of these at some of thse t-shirt print shops for abt $10 - $15 each? not sure of the exact price range but i think its ard there...but then again...its being an "original" cospa shirt or whatever might be more impt~

    sighs...even if there are things to buy at AFA...not enough $ since saving up for figurines... T_T ... last year had a lot of discounted figurines and stuff...

    From the news sites, it seems the scheduling is like this:

    Saturday: Ichiro Mizuki and Shokotan + Hatsune Miku
    Sunday: Yoshiyuki Fukuyama and May'n

    Now's the bad news. Single day tickets for the concert is $108, both days is $188. There is still a free section, but it will be alot smaller and the rest of the area will be walled up, so if youreally want to cathc themw ithout paying, you have to come real early.

    Hey, why don't we all team up to create an AFA'09 Survival Guide. Ya know, a guide for time strapped anime fan/college student who wants to maximize his time at AFA. You know like what to do, what to watch out for, what to beware of based on last year's event.

    Also we can make likfe predictions on what the song line-up the artistes are gonna perform and stuff.

    this is a little off topic, but its concerns my survival at AFA.

    i will only be going to the day 2 concert, aka May'n and Fukuyama. and since there is apparently an autograph session, i was thinking of buying a few CDs' there to get it signed. however, i am, ultimately, a fan of May'n and Fukuyama ONLY because of Macross... and naturally, the CDs i speak of are MacFrontier's and Fire Bombers'.

    so my question is:
    is it considered rude or inappropriate to get them to autograph those CDs?
    considering that half of frontier's vocal collection ost is not May'n's and about 1/3 of Fire Bomber's various albums are not Fukuyama's.

    i could buy some of their latest albums and/or singles to get them to autograph which is the most appropriate and respectful. but i havent listened to them before and/or i couldn't "find" them, especially fukuyama's. honestly, i not very interested in regular pop songs anyway. and i will not sink money into albums i dont like, which naturally include those i havent heard.

    i particularly need advice from people who frequent relevant forums/boards and know how, in general, fans think. i dont wanna go there, unintentional disrespect (as viewed by their fans) May'n and Fukuyama and get mobbed by their fans outside the hall...

    You've not heard of lats year's autograph signing fiasco?

    Basically it's like this, for most signings by Japanese idols, they don't really allow you to ask idols to sign personal items. The reasoning behind this is that their managers want to tightly control their idol's image, and that includes any autograph they might give out to their fans. Hence the usual practice is for them to give out "autographs" in the form of pre-signed cardboard pieces, which is exactly what happened at last year's AFA, resulting in some shocked fans begging and kowtowing to get their stuff signed but to no avail. Justified or overprotective practice? That's for you to decide.



    Really tough choice for the concert. I LOVE Aniki, at the same time I'm a big Macross fan and to me Macross 7 had the best music, so I really want to see Fukuyama in action. But to part with $188 is kinda painful.

    Unfortunately I have to agree here. Usually it is the managers, not the idols themselves, deciding what should be autographed. Standard procedure even in Akiba itself.

    Given that they are here on a very strict time schedule, don't expect those kind of upfront-and-personal autograph sessions we have come to expect from e.g. orchestral concerts.

    Gestalgeek wrote:Justified or overprotective practice?
    It's neither, but just right in the gray area. On one hand, we potentially might have fans with an unhealthy obsession with the idol(s). On the other hand, limiting the supply so that it never meets demand creates an aura of rarity.

    i knew of last year's incident. but still, i would rather be prepared for it and not need it.

    or u guys really believe the chance of a proper autograph session is so low, we might as well assume its not gonna happen... or let me rephrase: which of u going to the concert (may'n and fukuyama's concert), intent to go empty handed?

    Yes, that is what you should do. Because frankly, all you will probably be getting is a piece of cardboard with their autograph on it, which, in Japan, is pretty sought after. We just aren't into signed pieces of white cardboard here in singapore.

    And don't be too crazy about getting anything signed. Remember a certain individual last year who became famous almost overnight...




    Too bad we didn't get to see his face. Wonder what May'n must be have throught when this happened. And don't get me started on the Waterbottle Gate scandal during Daicon earlier this year.

    And to answer your question...Yes, I'm going empty handed. I would probably be too busy jumping to do anything else anyway.
