The Best of Anime (BoA) 2012 is back with more fun activities on Sept. 15-16, at Function Rooms 4 & 5, 3rd Level of the SMX Convention as part of the 33rd Manila International Book Fair.

Visual Kei fans will no longer sulk that certain bands do not visit the country to do concerts or just to show-up. This year, otakus and Japanese music enthusiasts should also prepare for Japan’s V-Kei band Uchuu Sentai Noiz as they will be making an appearance at Best of Anime 2012 convention.

Whole day activities include: the Manga Library where bookworms can find exclusive manga collections directly from the shelves of Japan, Sam’s Maid Café where the hungry and the tired can replenish their energies for the long day ahead, Sam’s Beauty Corner can offer to make any con-goer don the Harajuku and Lolita styles, and a lot more.
