Anime Festival Asia Singapore 2022 (#AFASG22), Southeast Asia’s biggest and most prestigious Japanese Pop Culture event, will return to Singapore in a physical format this November.
To be held from 25 to 27 November 2022 at the Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre, the experiential festival will bring the best and latest trending anime, cosplay, and gaming content to fans in Singapore and the region.
With a theme of AFAVERSE, the 2022 edition promises a multiverse of fun and excitement to all ACG (Animation, Comics, and Games) fans and Japanese popular culture enthusiasts.
