Alliance Software Inc (ASI) joined Cebu Institute of Technology - Japanese Studies for Culture and Language Studies (JAPSCULAS)' JapAnime event on August 26, 2011. CIT-JAPSCULAS is a campus-based organization that aims to enhance cultural and educational understanding between Filipinos and the Japanese by providing opportunities for students to learn and appreciate varying Japanese cultural perspectives. It also aims to deepen their understanding of the Japanese language, now considered an important tool in finding future employments especially in the IT industry.
JAPANIME was simultaneously held with CIT's Intramurals and Colors Day. Among the activities was an art design contest, individual cosplay contest, and non-contest activities including an art gallery, photo booth, and a fashion show where designers can showcase their Japanese-inspired designs to a larger audience.
ASI participated in the event as a judge for the cosplay contest, together with representatives from the Japan Foundation and Abendan Niponggo Center. With this collaboration, the event was yet another success, with Alliance doing its part in increasing awareness on the Japanese culture to the academe.
