During the Ozine Fest Anime Figure Special 2013 event last December 28-29, it was announced that the Ozine staff will be holding another anime event in two weeks.
The Ozine Team and anime cable channel ANIMAX ‘fused’ together to organize OTAKU EXPO 2014, which is scheduled on January 11-12, 2014 at SM Megamall Megatrade Halls.
According to the announcement, Otaku Expo will house the cancelled ANIMAX Carnival Philippines’ cosplay competition.
Japanese artist May’n, who should be the guest of the ANIMAX Carnival Philippines will not make it to the event due to scheduling problems but according to the host, they are already working with other ‘guests’.
ANIMAX Carnival Philippines was supposedly held last December 8 at Trinoma Activity Center but it was cancelled “out of respect for the nation as it grieves the devastating losses resulting from typhoon Yolanda.”
