If I'm not mistaken someone mention about this in the Miku Concert in Malaysia Post but I forgot which category in this forum it was in. There is a guy who claimed that he had asked the KLCC staff and even the event manager there and they said that there is no such thing as Anime Fiesta Kuala Lumpur being held there. He had even check the Halls too. So most probably its a scam.  Guys, this is a message from a senior cosplayer regarding about Anime Fiesta.Hello young and spirited cosplayers.As you may know, there is a scam event that is going on, as known as Anime Fiesta KL/AFKL, organized by Viva Company.I, as a caring(lol), human being, would like to warn you, PLEASE, PLEASE PLEASE do not fall for this event, its a fraud, its a scam, and its has be recognized for it's suspicious activity.Alot of things has been promised by them. Like Miku Concert and 4 halls in KLCC.Boys and Girls, I happen to help researching about the Miku concert. Sadly, the concert team is going to be disbanded early March, on the Last Miku Concert in Japan and will be signed up to a new management and will resume another season of concert tour(maybe), God knows when.About the 4 halls, there is a kind cosplayer who actually gone to the KLCC management asking about the booked halls on the event date. And we found out, all the halls are booked, NOT BY AFKL or VIVA. its by some other companies.And later I tried researching the VIVA company, and to find out, it is only a small hotlink booth, reload prepaid, selling 1 year warranty phone, etc etc. And its only nearby MY house.AFKL/VIVA CLAIMED they are the organizers of LOS ANGELES ANIME EXPO / LA AX. As far as I know, VIVA NEVER INVOLVED in organizing LA AX. The organizers of AX is Society for the Promotion of Japanese Animation (SPJA).As a cosplayer to another cosplayer. PLEASE do not fall for this scam. Go to RAGE! instead if you can travel. Just do not fall for it. I am just damned worried of all of you.But suddenly after a while there's this person saying that its real and one of his friend had even went to KLCC and asked the people there and they said yes. Head here to read more.

Searching for anyone who can teach a total newbie here to draw.

Nevermind about asking KLCC for confirmation, the fact that they claim they are bringing the Miku concert here is already suspicious. An event as big as that would have been announced somewhere other than in one Facebook wall post from this organizer, and apparently somewhere clearly states that the last concert was in Japan. I find it unbelievable that this small fry company can bring the Miku concert here, and I definitely don't believe it.Another thing that points out very plainly that this is a scam is the four halls in KLCC thing. If CF, who has been going on for ten years, can only get two halls, how can this organizer afford four? From just these two points, I don't even think it's necessary to check with anyone or KLCC to confirm. It's definitely a scam.Either way, if they miraculously pull it off at KLCC, I'm still boycotting it.

Scam or not, we'll see when the time comes. But still, I really hope that Miku can come to KL.

Honestly, I just want to see the outcome of this event. See the sparks of reaction after it happens. Will we be saying "I told you so" or will we be thinking "Dayum. Never expected that." Lol just saying.

The people who are so called organizing the event aren't responding to anything...but instead blind supporters are the one who were like... "have faith in them!!" etc etc. You should see how I had to 'argue' with one. He even try to talk to me about importance of being patience yadda yadda ppfffft

Guess after all the argument it is still kinda hard to see whether this is true or not. Guess we will have to wait for the announcement or more info on this~

Here is our firsthand experience from the organizers that we would like to share :AFKL tried to contact us offering a booth space worth 5k. He said he is from Japan but his english slang sounds soo chinese. He is giving us a special price and will get back to us. But since then.. no replies...Thanks for the heads up guys! If not we might lost 5k....

http://mynime.com/bl...la-lumpur-2012/Y'know, I'm kinda surprised they're still up to it. Seriously?

Seems like AFKL knows he can't win the support of CF-ers, they target that n00b anime forum instead.FYI, mynime is a new community for the ACG fans, they started last June. And everyone there are n00bs including some of the mods and admins. So I guess they took advantage of their newbie status.
