Otaku Taiiki was held last Sunday, August 23, 2009 at SM Megamall Megatrade Hall 3. The event is the brainchild of the organizers of Ozine Fest, Anicon, and the supposed gaming convention turned one huge cosplay event known as GX-Con. I really don't have high expectations of the event but I am willing to give it a chance and see if there are any improvements.
I arrived at around 10:30 AM. There weren't many people yet as the cosplayers have not arrived so there was time to go around inside the event hall. The ticket price for the event is PhP100.00. Sese and I had planned to go the event but she went ahead of me and was already inside. It wasn't too hard to find her because the event space was so small. I even wonderedhow the event would be able to handle all these people.
The layout of the event was better than in previous events. It was actually more spacious and they did not try to maximize the hall too much. I have to applaud them for better layout planning. The passageways were much more clear, there was enough space in between booths. The stage was clear of obstruction and there was lots of room by the audience area in front of the stage.
