Well so, I didn’t managed to borrow the DSLR due to the loss of the camera’s battery by my friend’s dad but nevermind, we managed to catch May’N first international live debut, at Singapore no less!
As expected, we were asked to keep all our recording devices, cameras and handphones aside. The most front portion of the crowd complied ( I wasn’t in front =( didn’t have the magic VIP diamond pass). However, being behind, brave souls begin to whip their camera handphones and SLRs and started taking photos and videos. Meanwhile, please take a look at the only pathetic shot I took from far.
Galleries: You can browse this gallery and this for pictures until I put mine up. Videos of May’N in Singapore up as well. This gallery (oops the link is removed! By me!) has so many shots of May’N even I am ashame. Uhm, what happened to no camera rule? One or two grainy shots for fun sure, no harm done I guess but rapid shots right in front…not complaining since we get to relive that night but still…hope this doesn’t affect future concerts.
Bloggers on AFA 08:
More blog posts about May’N concert here by Soshi, by Setsuna-san who came over from Malaysia, by AK and ume who has translated most of May’N's latest blog posts (She loves Singapore. Yay!)She actually went to Takashimaya to shop, wonder if any otaku spotted her.
Drama mama over May’N:
Interestingly, due to cultural differences or ignorance of japanese culture, certain fans were upset about minor stuff really not too happy May’N didn’t sign their autographs on the spot. There’s even a nutcase from Malaysia which is the kind of fan that makes security go on high alert. Barge in gungho and bow for a autograph despite having the specially autograph white board version which is a first for May’N. Hai. The world doesn’t revolve around you dude, get a life.
Dorama hits climax:
Ok ok. It doesn’t matter I wasn’t the one who recorded the videos, doesn’t matter May’N can’t even be seen clearly in the videos but still a rule is a rule right? Yea I linked it. No, I didn’t upload. Fine fine, they have been removed. Go find them yourselves if you desire to. In the meantime, let’s see what’s moving and shaking over at the high profilers Singaporean bloggers. The outcry by say upset ‘fans’ have set off these bloggers into joining the fray of dorama. Ok so…this means you will get to see the BEST photos I have of May’N!! Or not.
Dorama simmers and fizzles:
Dorama has ended. Expectations blown, anger raged and it’s time to await AFA 09+STCC? Hmhm, I hope not though, got to have two events to buy more stuff! This particular piece of news came about after reading 0ne’s post who is part of the local industry of animation. Go over and check out AFA 08 from an industry insider’s perspective. Here’s a special May’N coverage from a Diamond VIP point of view, go read!
Otakus from all over Singapore gathered and gave their ‘May’N’ cheer over and over again. Even groups far behind were hopping up and down. Needless to say the crowd right in front sang together with her.
