Manga Club Gathering and selling: There will be a Manga (Japanese comic) sales by our own KK Manga Club (known as the Team Day Dreamers). The group will be present that day to sell their own manga. Come support KK manga! We will also be selling other mangas from Gempak.

Mnu Illustrative Content iV (2006) is also available for selling. MnU was conceived about 5 years ago by a group of animation artists in a small studio in Kelana Jaya who started out small and young,but with much more to offer. The artists themselves had no idea where each of their footsteps will take them, neither do they want to lose out on that special relationship they have all shared during their collaborative works on the tv series there. So the idea of coming up with an coopeerative art book project came into play. If you are a fan of Mnu artwork, you could pre-order the next book on this day.

Public are welcome to join the manga club, the club will contact you for any future Artjam (a comic sharing, social + workshop). Come see some of our own local talent and help support!

PSP and NDS zone: If you are a PSP or NDS owner, we would like to invite you to come over and join us for free gaming sessions. A table area will be ready on that day itself and some of our members will be there hoping to have some of the public join us for a group game. Monster Hunter anyone?
