First of all, I survive an apocalypse !!! Not once but twice !!! As a gratitude, here an illustration featuring Megurine Luka in Santa costume by desarms. You can find his official Pixiv page here.
Eventhough our little circle has only been formed around August 2012, we have managed to attend 4 events this year and have sold around 200 artbooks. So if you don’t mind, let me repeat Squash’s journey from birth till end of year.
Anime Festival Asia Indonesia (1-2 September 2012)
This is our maiden event. Together with AMH and FPS, we opened a Creator’s Booth at AFA-ID. We are bringing our first artbook titled “Squash Alternative Works 2012”. And thanks to our fans, we have achieved a complete sold-out on this event. Our artbook even get signed by Danny Choo. Thanks, Danny~san.
Anime Festival Asia Singapore (9-11 November 2012)
Our second event, and first event outside Indonesia. This time, we are bringing our second artbook with The Idolm@ster theme titled “Pure Pure Maiden’s Heart, The iDOLM@STER FANBOOK”. Unfortunately, the competition is fierce, and we cannot achieve our last success in this event. But it is a great experience to meet with other circles and make new friends there.
On the bright side, our artist, daniwae and Mizunashi get a honorable mention by Danny Choo. You can find his review here.
Kaskus Jelajah TKP (24 – 25 November 2012)
This is a joint event with AMH Community (since most of our circle’s members come from AMH). We are displaying our artbooks there, and it sparks some interest from few people there.
Nihon Bunka Matsuri Universitas Nasional (15-16 November 2012)
This is our first university event. We are still bringing our second artbook as our main item.
Thank you for your support this year. We are having a great time. Please keep supporting us next year.
Last word from me. I wish you a Merry X’mas and Happy New Year.
