It's been so long since Otaku Expo has established itself to be one of the much-awaited hangouts for the casual otaku at SM Megamall's Megatrade Hall, and they will be there once again.
We can always predict major changes in the anime/cosplay/gaming community in the 2020s, and only the future will tell us if these outlooks will be a reality.
Anime Idol Convention 2020 organizers have announced that the event has been moved to a later date, citing the situation at Taal Volcano which erupted last Sunday afternoon.
In a letter sent to keepsakes. by our friends at Cubizone (Cubinet Interactive), they have officially announced that the Closed Beta Testing (CBT) for Naruto: Slugfest is live.
"Overall, the year 2019 has been awesome - already looking forward to what this year will bring to us!"
"Therefore, we can agree that the "Decade of Anime" fan poll is reserved to only Funimation-licensed titles, dominated by fans who are majority hooked to Kimetsu no Yaiba, the fluidly-animated series which aired before this decade ends."
"Moving back to JoyRide, I tried the service twice. Based on the rider-partner I talked to in my first ride (December 28), JoyRide partners (or "Kasundo") only accept full-time riders. This alone sets the difference between JoyRide and Angkas."
We have seen a lot of twists and turns, and as with the underground idol community in Japan, there was quite a lot of graduations too.
"The signals are here - it's a good time to start a podcast. Even former radio broadcasters are starting their own."
Described as an open-world MMORPG, Naruto Slugfest is the mobile game adaptation of Naruto Shippuden, with 4 player classes to choose from. From what I understood, the game will also have solo quests, group and guild confrontations. Aside from this, the game has its own day & night and weather settings to complement the nostalgic Naruto look and feel.
