The Best of Anime 2013 : A Celebration of All Things Anime-zing!

Wazzup Pilipinas!

It's one of the much-awaited anime event of the year where you'll see a lot of anime-inspired and creatively colorful and ingenious outfits and costumes donned by various otakus of all ages.

It's one of those times of the year when otakus get to bring out their fascination with their favorite anime characters and idols. The imagination breaks lose in all directions and magnitude. Some went all the way to create very expensive outfits and props, while many tried to be resourceful in the materials hey used.

The Best of Anime 2013 held last September 14 and 15 at the SMX Convention Center Mall of Asia Complex also featured popular Japanese personalities that wowed the huge crowd.

The Best of Anime 2013 was one of the co-located events held in simultaneous run with other events like the 34th Manila International Book Fair (September 11-15), National Conference on Language and Literature  (September 10-12) and EduCare: A Young Child Conference (September 13-14) of which Wazzup Pilipinas was the proud online media partner.

Pop group Starmarie, composed of Takamori Shino, Kishita Nozo- mi and Aoki Shior,  and singer-songwriter Joe Inoue were invited to grace the event.

Starmarie is famous for intense dance tune lyrics with fairy tale and fantasy themes. They just recently released their second album, Fantasy World 2 available for Php 700 at the event.

Joe Inoue rose to fame with the song Closer. He grew up in a musical environment and started to create his own materials on a multi-track recorder. He is also a member of J-Melo, a television program by NHK that is being aired in 180 countries. Joe started his new project called Tenguboy.

Karael Sanguis, one of the famous cosplayer from Thailand, was also present for the ribbon-cutting ceremonies and was frequently live on stage interacting with fans. Karael is famous for his cosplays and crossdressess in which he has spicecrossdressed as Sheryl Nome of Macross Fronteir; Reira Serizawa of Nana; and Alice of Resident Evil, just to name a few.

Joining Karael are JiakiDarkness and YukiGodbless, cosplay winners in their own country who represented Thailand in the World Cosplay Summit in 2011.

Doraemon and Nobita were also there to bring laughter to their fans. From the anime and manga series, Doraemon is an intelligent robotic cat who travels back in time from the 22nd century to aid Nobita Nobi.
