I guess those who have been visiting my blog regularly must’ve noticed a link on the sidebar recently, titled “What is GACC?“. For those who’ve already visited it or know about it, hope to see ya there! As for those who don’t know…
GACC is an event conducted by EMiNA, the anime club of Multimedia University Malacca, and they are quite an active club. GACC, which stands for “Games, Anime & Comics Circle”, is their main event of the year, and it was first held in March last year. Given the “last minute spurt” effort that Malaysians are famous for, the first GACC was a resounding success. Being one of the committee members of the event last year, I must say it was a really fun day.
This year, GACC is being held for two days straight on the weekend of March 17th and 18th, roughly a week from now. EMiNA has set their sights high and for the first time ever, they have managed to invite a seiyuu to their event, Tohru Furuya-san, better known as Amuro Ray from the original Gundam series and also as Tuxedo Mask from the ever popular Sailormoon series. This, incidentally marks the first time a seiyuu has appeared in Malaysia, and this will be a historic event for those in the Malaysian otaku community :D. Tohru Furuya-san is scheduled to be giving a talk, autograph session and he will also be the special judge of the cosplay competition finals on the second and last day of the event.
Of course, there also other events being held too, living to their name of “Games, Anime & Comics Circle”, as not only there will be cosplay competitions, there are also be competitions of PS2 games, Gundam kit building, character designing and also Magic: The Gathering tournaments. Of course there will also be doujinshi booths and anime merchandise booths too. It’s quite possibly the most varied AMG event in Malaysia.
This year, I will also be there for the event as well, and will be covering it for my part-time job. Anyways, to my local readers and interested ones, please do attend the event and make it another success. </shamelessplug>
