The worst I could say to Comic Fiesta 2016 is rather underwhelming. Maybe because I find it hard to enjoy it, or Animangaki 2016 is just so good. But overall, I'm still glad that I came, like I did every year. And this year does leave me some great memories in this terrible year.
The main reason I find it hard to enjoy my time in Comic Fiesta 2016 is the fact that the distance between the venue and it's entrance is just unnecessarily long!
Yes, that is an ENTRANCE!!!
And another factor is that I could hardly get pictures of cosplayers like I used to do, due to some weird reasons which my phone battery just draining too quickly. And for every event, there's always a concert. But then I still find it hard to enjoy it, simply because I'm not familiar with 99% of the songs played by the multiple bands that were invited. But what's the 1%? I'll get into that later.
But the best thing in Comic Fiesta 2016, or any anime events I've been to, is a chance to meet my friends, even it's for a few minutes at a time. It's very hard to see them in person given the distance between us. In fact I had to wait for a few months only to see them for less than 5 minutes on average. As in And of course, for once a year, I got to meet my role model, Danny Choo.
I even got him to sign on my Fanart! (which I'll upload later)
And of course some of my personal Highlights of the event itself. Note: these is all based on my personal choice which isn't affected by any factor. In other words, I just liked it.

So, here comes the things that had a personal effects on me. As some of might know, I am a very big fan of Monty. To the point that I considered him a friend, even though we don't even know each other. Long story short, Monty had a very big influence to me. You can read it here.
When I attend the concert for Day1, I thought that I'd probably know at least some of the songs. But I did not expect the band, Nandemo Ii, announced that they'll play a cover of "This will be the day" as a tribute for Monty. Just right before they play the song, I did the thing that I had to do. I let out a loud scream. FOR MONTY!! And I'm the only one who did that. But it doesn't matter, So long as I had a wish come true, sooner than I thought. I dunno how to express with words, but I've sent a message to them. The screenshots will explain itself.
Though it may not be from Jeff himself, I am thankful enough to be there to witness a song from RWBY to be performed live in Malaysia for the first time ever. Because of that, "This will be the day" has more meaning to me now.
Now I can't wait for Animax Carnival 2017!
