Otaku Musika Festival at Tiendesitas

Otaku Musika Festival is finally happening on September 22-23, 2018 at Tiendesitas in Pasig City.  Thanks to Ortigas and Company for being our venue partner and allowing us to finally bring this event to life.  It will be our first ever 2-day event which focuses on music plus IT IS TOTALLY FREE TO ATTEND.  Our official hashtags are #OtakuMusika #OtakuMusika2018.

Events at Otaku Musika Festival

Otaku Musika Festival will be a showcase of talents not only from anime and JPop community but also from some related pop culture which we want to showcase.  We will have a total of 5 featured competitions for this event as follows.

  • Ultimate Singing Idol.  We started this event last Pinoy Otaku Festival 2018 and now we are bringing it back.  We decided to replace the Banzai! category with a solo category to give way to those who want to perform solo.
  • Groove It!  We are bringing back our dance competition but now you can perform as an individual, duo or as a group.  We miss seeing dances on events.
  • Battle of the Bands.  We really enjoy listening to bands and so do you.  Enjoy an expanded version of our POF BOTB.
  • Cosplay Runway.  We will finally do it for you,  This is a cosplay ramp where you ramp while a band is playing.  If you have watched a fashion show from abroad well this is somewhat like that – a cosplay fashion show with a twist.
  • Lip Sync Battle.  This will be the first time that we will try this out so I hope that you can support us.  Just bring a mic, memorize the song and moves, lip sync to it and perform to your hearts out.

Otaku Musika Festival Highlights

Besides the competition we will also be having exhibitors and booths as our partners.  Some of your favorite booths from Pinoy Otaku Festival will be returning for this event.  There will also be new partners coming in so that you can make the most our of going to the event.

Pinoy Idol Performance will also be one of the highlights.  We will be bringing back some of those that performed during the last Pinoy Otaku Festival 2018 plus more.  We will announce them once everyone confirms.

Pinoy Otaku Festival (POF) 2017: A Huge Success

Pinoy Otaku Festival was first conceptualized and started in 2011.  It was actually Pinoy Otaku Encore 2011 at SM Megatrade Hall 3 which can be considered as the very first POF.  POF 2017, however was the most successful and best among all the festival that was held and it was because of the cooperation and full support of Ayala Malls Fairview Terraces to the event.  If not for them, it will not be a success.

Pinoy Otaku Festival (POF) 2017: Danketsu is the biggest event of Naruto Cosplayers PH (NCPH) for 2017. It is the 4th run of this annual event which was inspired by its first ever concept in November 2011 – Pinoy Otaku Encore.

Sneak Peak at Best of Anime (BOA) 2014

Sneak Peak at Best of Anime (BOA) 2014

Best of Anime 2014 will once again be a sure success since it is combining the right ingredient that people and anime-lovers wanted to see in a convention. This year the event would a bit more expensive but there would be more things to expect and tons of guests to see. BOA 2014 will be on September 20-21, 2014 at Function Room 3 and 4, SMX Convention Center, SM Mall of Asia Complex.

Last year we have an awesome time covering the event and also having our very own booth at the event.  We also manage to meet Joe Inoe and gave him his very own Otaku shirt.


Here is our coverage of BOA 2013: [ DAY 1DAY 2 | Jiaki Darkness and Yuki Godbless ]

A ticket for this year’s event is peg at P300 for one day and if you avail of the two-day pass it will only be at P500. Remember that the venue is SMX so we would like to remind you that guards are more strict in this area and you better avail a ticket that loiter around outside. Take the lesson last April.


If you want to buy in advance the ticket for BOA 2014, you can CLICK THIS BOA 2014 TICKET RESERVATION FORM and you can also choose any of the methods below:

  • Personal Purchase = Visit their office in Makati and buy your tickets there.
  • VIA Bank and Carrier = Fill up the Reservation Form and send it to their email, Deposit your payment in the Bank, Send them the deposit slip and your tickets will be mailed.
  • Express Lane = Send us the Reservation Form via Email, Deposit your payment at the Bank and send the scanned copy to us and you may pick up your Ticket on the Day of the Event.


Kaika (updated July 23, 2014).  She is the person behind The Cosplay Chronicles.

Onnies. Among the top 30 cosplayers in with more than 160,000 Facebook fans. She is a Thailand-based, Chienese cosplayer known for her impressive cosplay and crossdresses.

Joe Inoe. He already became a guest for BOA 2013 and he is coming back to once again entertain everyone. Joe Inoe is a Japanese-American singer who was well known for his rendition of “Closer”, which had been used for the fourth opening of Naruto Chippuden. He also had other songs for other animes. He will be performing on September 21.


Visual Kei Band. BOA 2014 will once again showcase a Visual Kei Band although the name of the band is not yet announced. I would not be surprised it it will once again be Uchusentai Noiz since their comeback last May was not enough. Noiz had made tons of new Filipino songs and it would be great to have them in BOA this year.


BOA is coming up with 3 categories for their Cosplay Competition: Chibi, Cloth and Mecha/Armor. This categorization will be something which will bring fairness to those who are wearing cloth costumes, so that they can have chance to win the competition. It is also an all-star competition meaning you can cosplay any character from any genre and be it Japanese or Western.

Prizes includes cash prize of P5,000 for Mecha/Armor, P3,000 for cloth and P2,000 for Chibi. Prizes will also include freebies, a plaque of recognition and special feature on BOA’s media partners. Take note as well that Chibi for BOA 2014 will cover cosplayers ages 2-7 years old.

BOA 2014_All Star Cosplay_Revised


BOA 2014 will be the venue for the first ever Inter-School Cosplay Competition. This is a cosplay competition which was held at various schools with the help of in-school organizations. The finals will be held during BOA.

If you are an artist you can join the BOA Quockdraw Competition which is being run online. Just check out for the theme, create the artwork and then submit them online.

Besides the above competition there will also be a Battle of the Bands. Photo Competition, and BOA Superstar (Karaoke Competition), You can download and view the mechanics for the competition at THIS LINK.


If you are looking for all sorts of specialized merchandise then BOA 2014 is an ideal place for you. Toys, accessories and items that are totally dedicated to anime will be present in this convention. Besides that, we are sure that there will be fun booths at the event which includes activities and gaming. You will rather be inside the event to experience the fun that be left out outside of the venue.
