EOY is traditionally the last local event of the year that everyone ‘looks’ forward to. It is also the event with the inauspicious luck of always clashing with other events or having problems. There are plenty of problems and complaints about EOY this time round. The unfortunate act by a single investor and the amazing luck of going head-to-head with L2P.
Regardless of all the problems and complaints, as the End-of-Year, it signifies one last hurrah for the ani-manga fan community to get together one last time and as a tradition, CDS is there once more.
Unlike past years, it is free entry this time and at Marina Barrage of all places. They have also set up a questing system where you can win stuffs and scan QR codes. It is pretty interesting stuff for an indie-oriented, generally smaller scale event.
Before you read on to our experience this time round, one last announcement. CDS will be over at Comic Fiesta (with Surface) and Comiket towards the end of the year. If you happen to be in KL or Tokyo then, try and find us!
