What is AniManGaki?
AniManGaki is an animation, comics and games (ACG) convention held annually at Sunway Pyramid Convention Centre (2011 - 2018).
Our mission is to be a gathering place for enthusiasts, fandoms and followers to celebrate all things geeky; interests ranging from the edgy Japanese pop-culture to the Marvel-DC of the Western world.
Held over two fun-filled days of costumes, exhibits, theme-inspired activities, guests appearances, autograph sessions, and stage performances, AniManGaki is sure to give all visitors an amazing and memorable weekend!
What does the name AniManGaki stand for?<br />
AniManGaki is the portmanteau of four words: Anime, Manga, Games, and Gaki (Japanese slang for 'brat').
The convention name was coined on 30th March 2009 at 3.00am via MSN Messenger Chatroom between the founder and a crew member. The finishing piece came easy, given that it was the founder's nickname for the crew members.
You've guessed it right; it was the word 'gaki'.
Am I a 'Gaki'?
The word 'gaki' in Japanese means 'brat'. Originally a nickname strictly reserved for the crew members, the term now extends to include all fans and attendees of AniManGaki. It acts as a sign of bond between us, you, and many other 'gaki's out there. High-five a fellow 'gaki' today!
What can I expect from AniManGaki?<br />
If this is your first time experiencing AniManGaki's convention, you may expect a variety of activities in store at the event.
Kindly grab a copy of our printed schedules and leaflets at AniManGaki to keep track of all the happenings and pick those that interests you. Expect a crowded environment throng with people who share similar interests with one another. You will see how easy it is to make new friends here.
Last but not least, remember to have fun!
Are there any ATMs around?<br />
ATMs are readily available within the mall, located below the convention centre.
I heard rumor about AniManGaki. How can I find out if it's true?<br />
Contact us with your questions. A major reason we established contacts lists and social media pages was to get accurate, up to date information out to the fans.
Who should purchase entry tickets?<br />
All attendees who are ten-years-old and above will require a ticket to enter AniManGaki.
Anyone under 12 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian over the age of 18 for the duration of their time at the event.
We highly recommend that individuals under 18 years of age be accompanied by an adult as well.
AniManGaki tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable.
Where can I purchase AniManGaki entry tickets?<br />
To enter the AniManGaki event area, entry tickets must be purchased beforehand.
Entry tickets will be sold during both days of the event, from 9.30AM onwards till closing time. We advise coming early to avoid long queues.
Tickets may be purchased earlier at selected local events prior to AniManGaki. Please stay tuned to our Facebook page for announcements on locations of early ticket sales.
What time does the Exhibit Hall open?<br />
Traditionally, early ticket holders will be allowed early entry into the outer halls by 9.30AM onwards, and start queuing for the main hall doors to open, which opens by 10.00AM, provided there are no delays.
Is Goods and Service Tax (GST) included in the ticket price?<br />
Fortunately, we will NOT be charging GST for our entry tickets*. However, we are still affected by the increase in prices of product and services needed to run this event. AniManGaki will be bearing the additional costs to keep ticket prices from fluctuating any higher than they need to be.

Yes and no. While we appreciate your attendance at our event, we also hope that you respect others in terms of space. Be notified that plugs will NOT be provided. Side tables are NOT allowed at all times as it may disrupt traffic flow.
Do I have to cosplay (dress up in a costume), and according to the theme?<br />
Cosplay is not required, but encouraged. You should dress for comfort if you intend to be spending long hours in the event area. However, many attendees may dress up, and if you're feeling creative, feel free to show off your skills. Our annual theme is to give our activities, event and attendees a basis to follow and provide content to our visitors. It is not required, but it is encouraged to give life to our theme!
Is wearing a bikini too much?<br />
We would like to remind you that AniManGaki is a family friendly event and that we request all attendees to respect this and dress appropriately on convention grounds. This applies as well to other sensitive, suggestive or obscene materials or items brought into AniManGaki. Appropriate footwear must be worn on convention grounds at all time; being barefooted or wearing socks only are not allowed. Check out our Rules and Regulations for more information.
Who or what is Kei-chan?<br />
Keichan is AniManGaki's one and only official mascot. Its gender remains highly debatable. Your guess is as good as ours.
How can I help or contribute to AMG?<br />
Sacrifice your time, soul and blood to our lord Kei-chan. If you can't, just volunteering at our events is a good start at showing us your dedication. Your passion and contribution will be noticed, for we are always watching...
