A little warm-up before AFA Malaysia Coverage~
Hello, Metanorn readers/lurkers. It’s Toori and I’m back for more AniCon Coverage from Malaysia. This time I’m writing about C2AGE. Cosplay, Comics, Anime and Games Exhibition (C2AGE) is an ACG Convention organized by the HELP University College students in Malaysia. This year is their sixth year organizing this event in Tropicana City Mall, which is also somewhere close to their campus. This event was held for 3 days but I’m only covering Day 2 and 3. Basically, I’ve written about things that happened for both days. I’m sorry if the post is too long. Before I begin, here is a video done by Studio Omoshiroi for Day 1 cosplays:

Local Band, Solo and Duet Performance
Ani-On Project. They performed Tsukiakari no Michishirube (Darker Than Black 2), Memoir (Fate/Zero)
and My Dearest (Guilty Crown).
Zetsu Bo Prinny. He sang two Vocaloid songs: Cantarella and Magnet. Click for more:Show ▼
Solo Cosplay: Other than those in the pictures, we had Hakurei Reimu (Touhou), Remilia Scarlet (Touhou), Black Miku and an eyepatch guy from Yakuza: Dead Souls. Cosplayers were required to pose and judges decide who goes for the finals. Hakurei Reimu, Remilia Scarlet, Kagura and Black Miku was chosen for the finals.
Solo Cosplay Finals: Each finalist was required to do a skit or dance. Black Miku performed a dance of a song from a black ver. of Project Diva (was there such a Project Diva?). Kagura danced Platinum Disco from Nisemonogatari. Her steps were really good. Remilia Scarlet performed a skit of her killing everybody in Scarlet Mansion and was lectured and killed by Shikeiki Yamaxanadu. Hakurei Reimu performed a skit as well about her (him actually) fighting Sakuya in the Scarlet Mansion.
Sushi and Ramen Eating Competition: This competition was held for two days. Ramen was as fine as it looks but the sushi was a killer. Each sushi’s rice was filled with wasabi and participants were suffering and trying to eat the sushi. Two people succeeded in finishing all on the first day but none did the same on second day. The winner for the sushi competition also won the ramen for both days.

Fight Saber MY: A lightsaber fight performance of Star Wars. Some were intense, while others were plain boring or rather seemed obviously planned. Apparently they have been doing these performances for many events even for last year’s Comic Fiesta.
J-Core Rave Party by Rage Nataka: C2AGE Day 2 ended with a bang. People were reluctant to dance in a public mall except for some cosplayers. Watch this video and see how nuts some of us Malaysians are. (Caution. The video is very loud and broken because it’s recorded using a mobile phone. By the way, it’s a long video yet it covered only half of the whole party.)
DOTA 2 Tournament: Don’t ask me why we Malaysians like to have tournaments of this game every time. We just do. This tournament was sponsored by MSI with a bunch of their new high-end laptops, Steelseries sponsoring keyboards and Razor with their mouse. Spectators even got to watch the tournament through two Samsung LED TVs.
Cosplay Checkers: Two team of cosplayers were required to start this game. Each of member will represent pieces of the board. A representative will play the actual checker (left photo) while cosplayers move or defeat opposing pieces accordingly (right photo). To summaries the situation: it was a mess.
Weiss Schwarz & Chaos TCG tournament: The tournament was organised by Korindou, a trading-card shop in Melaka. I would have joined the game if only my deck wasn’t messy and sticking with each other…

She drew a chubby Black Rock Shooter for me
Bought my ultimate haul for C2AGE from this guy. He was my supplementary class teacher for Physics and this was his part-time job so he gave me a special price. Lucky~
My ultimate haul from C2AGE
Huke’s BLK artbook with BRS Beast figma
Originally I gave up on getting this as it was considered extinct. The moment I saw this hiding among the other figures, I wasn’t able to hold back and bought it. I couldn’t afford to buy anything else once I got this. As I have mentioned, I got it for a special price of RM300 which I would need to pay RM350+ to get one outside.
Now that we’re done with the coverage, it’s time for the main course:
C2AGE Security Force
Special treat for Kyokai: Kawai Natsume, complete with Nyanko-sensei and his Book of Friends
You know, you won’t leave alive when you see all the Yunos from three worlds
Avengers of C2AGE
How about a game of UNO, bitches?
Little Ushio. Kawaii!!! Any lolicon interested in her FB?
You are not small but still, excuse me… May I have some of that?
Credits to my senpai from college for providing most of the cosplay photos, while I focus on getting event photos. Check out my G+ album for more cosplay pictures.
This was my first time experiencing a convention organised by college students. Although C2AGE isn’t as big as Comic Fiesta but it has its own awesomeness in it. Congratulations to the C2AGE committee members in making C2AGE a success. I’d also like to thank Kyokai for giving me the opportunity to write again for Metanorn. I hope you liked my coverage, especially you Malaysian lurkers out there! My next coverage will be Anime Festival Asia Malaysia, which is in another two weeks or less. See ya~
