Inspired by international events like Fancy Frontier, Comiket, and ComicWorld, The Banquet is an upcoming event promising to elevate the local cosplay and doujin scene to new heights. Happening on the 6th & 7th October at Evolve Concept Mall, it is organised by M8 Community Events who describe it as “the most conventional ACG event [presented] in the most unconventional way.”
