Anime Festival Asia 09: Kopdar #2

Anime-wise, I am not a fan of mainstream titles such as Naruto, K-On, Bleach etc, so I was not that enthusiastic when I heard that the Anime Festival Asia was going to be held for the second time, here in Singapore. However, it was a good chance to meet my fellow bloggers who are coincidently also anime fans. And I met them, Grace and disc-co! After a rendezvous with *** ******** aka Gentole aka Ali Sastro last March, it was my second kopdar1 (of course, excluding people that I met physically first before knowing that they had blogs, likeย Zamroni and Joe Satrianto).

And Danny Choo, a renowned blogger, who resides in Japan and whose blog covers anime subculture, was also there, wearing his signature costume, imperial troop from Star Wars.

The one wearing Star Wars' imperial soldier costume is Danny Choo.

BTW, I was tempted to buy an Airi T-shirt, but it cost SGD 45. So expensive leh.

1Kopdar, abbreviation of kopi darat, literally means “land coffee” (or “land copy”? Thanks to Ando-kun’s suggestion), but here it refers to face-to-face meeting among people who get to know each other from ย the internet. I don’t know the origin of the idiom.

    cuma konfirmasi aja nih, kopdar = kopi darat.
    Kopi = Copy ; atau Kopi = Coffee

    soalnya istilah kopdar dimulai dari orang jaman doyan nge-brik (maksudnya: break)yg pengen ketemu muka langsung. Perasaan dulu pernah nonton film warkop yg tokohnya pake radio amatir. Misalnya:

    A: Hallo… Hallo… bisa dikopi gitu ganti…
    B: OK… bisa di-roger gitu….

    ganti= over???

    mohon konfirmasinya….

    Foto sisanya di FB, atau nunggu Grace atau disc-co upload. ๐Ÿ˜€
    Dan fotonya diedit karena belum dapat izin dari ybs untuk majang foto mereka. :mrgreen:

    No, he is the pedobear, and you are the awesome (smiley).
    Kalo main ke Malaysia, saya mau ke Malaka. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Saya masih naksir Airi~ โค โค โค

    Oh, bisa juga ya. ๐Ÿ˜•
    OK saya update postingannya. Terima kasih. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Makasih gan. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Ganteng banggetz! \m/

    Wah coba saya dulu ambil tawaran NTU yah (tiba-tiba teringat kenyataan bahwa saya pernah menolak tawaran beasiswa NTU!!) Kok jadi ngiri yah. Saya juga mau ikut ke AFA. Biar bukan fans. Pengen ke sana aja. Liat-liat. ๐Ÿ˜€

  13. 13 itikkecil 22/11/2009 at 5:05 PM

    jadi ngiri… kapan ya bisa kopdar di Singapore…

  14. 14 Nicholas Hwa 22/11/2009 at 5:25 PM

    @Ali Sastro
    Wah nolak beasiswa NTU demi kerjaan di ******* ****! ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

    Nah, dalam hal ini posisi saya persis seperti Anda, Mas Ali. Saya bukan pengikut subkultur anime mainstream masa kini seperti halnya Grace atau Disc-co. Gundam cuman suka Wing, 1995. Kamen Rider (Ksatria Baja Hitam) juga cuma suka yang era Showa (jaman Kaisar Hirohito), yang masanya sudah lewat puluhan tahun lalu. Ini bukan dunia saya, makanya pingin lihat-lihat juga. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Lah, kalo kopdar di Singapore bukannya malah dikit orangnya? :mrgreen:

    AWESOME! (read: ASEM! –> prononsiasion versi orang ngiri ๐Ÿ˜† )
    you went to a cool event! well, as for me, i’m ot that “in” into anime subculture than i used to be, but spending some times into event like that will be all fun, i guess. since it held in sing-a-pore, then wallet is a matter to me.

    saw the first pic with no censorship already :mrgreen: and, eh, i think you fell for airi’s t-shirt since it depicted Airi in “battle damaged” costume, eh? ๐Ÿ˜† like i said, before, mbertz… try Cattleya ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜†

  16. 16 Felicia 23/11/2009 at 9:19 AM

    pingin pingin pingin pergiii…hiks…
    tahun depan, pasti!

    i dont know much ‘bot Anime ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    tapi kalau di tempat saya ada festival atau hal-hal yang berbau anime, saya suka datang, senang aja ngeliat berbagai macam kreativitas orang-orang didalamnya. apalagi jika ada lomba keren-kerenam cosplay… ๐Ÿ˜†

  18. 18 Nicholas Hwa 23/11/2009 at 3:40 PM


    spending some times into event like that will be all fun, i guess

    Ask disc-co. He was really amused. ๐Ÿ˜€

    it depicted Airi in โ€œbattle damagedโ€ costume

    No, she was wearing normal maid costume. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Airiiii~~~~ โค โค โค

    try Cattleya

    Silakan sampeyan saja. :mrgreen:

    Suparman-nya dikemanakan? ๐Ÿ˜€


    apalagi jika ada lomba keren-kerenam cosplay

    Kata Grace sih jelek-jelek. ๐Ÿ˜†

  19. 19 grace 25/11/2009 at 11:45 AM

    Yah, soalnya kebanyakan yang cosplay cewek, bahkan yang jadi chara cowok sekalipun, juga cewek. Jadinya kurang pol. Tapi ada juga sih yang bagus,keren dan moe pas akhir-akhir saya nemu ngumpul di bawah dan asyik di photo-photoin sama orang-orang~
    Tapi tetep ga ada cosplayer cowok yang bikin ngiler ๐Ÿ˜›
