AFA Indonesia 2024

EBiDAN, an artist collective that includes many popular Japanese boy groups such as BULLET TRAIN, M!LK, SUPER★DRAGON, and ONE N’ ONLY, will have a booth at “AFA Indonesia 2024” which is being held in Jakarta, Indonesia from May 3rd to the 5th. This will be EBiDAN’s first time hosting a booth at an overseas convention. The collective is gaining momentum in Japan at this very moment and is excited to spread their wings to the rest of Asia.

AFA (Anime Festival Asia) is the largest J-culture and ACG (anime, comics, and games) festival held annually across Southeast Asia. Since its inception in Singapore in 2008, it has been held in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Tokyo, and Hong Kong. In 2022, the 3-day event recorded over 145,000 participants.

AFA Indonesia 2024, which will be held at the Jakarta Convention Center from May 3rd to 5th, will feature a variety of booths, live performances, and events. Among them, the EBiDAN booth will feature merchandise and CD albums by BULLET TRAIN, M!LK, SUPER★DRAGON, Sakura Shimeji, ONE N’ ONLY, GENIN WA JIBUN NI ARU., and BUDDiiS. Not only will fans have access to items difficult to obtain outside of Japan, but music videos will be shown as well.

EBiDAN is rapidly expanding its presence in the J-pop scene. BULLET TRAIN leads the way with an annual arena tour, several other groups put on headlining shows for audiences exceeding 10,000, with the addition of shows outside Asia such as ONE N’ ONLY’s South America tour. In addition to their musical endeavors, many members are also active in the acting world. Members from BULLET TRAIN, Takuya Kusakawa in “Minato Shoji Coin Laundry,” Aloha Takamatsu and Haru Kashiwagi, have taken the world by storm with their appearances in BL dramas that are popular both in Japan and abroad. Others like GENIN WA JIBUN NI ARU.’s Kazuto Mokudai in Kamen Rider Geats, M!LK’s Hayato Sano, SUPER★DRAGON’s Tsuyoshi Furukawa and Koki Tanaka, and BUDDiiS’ Shoot Mori have took part in many Japanese dramas. Don’t miss the international launch of EBiDAN, a leading name in the Japanese idol scene!
