Alright, I’m pumped for this! Seriously, if I don’t at least go check out some cosplay or something I’ll feel bad. That and I promised to buy some stuff for people.
- Went to Comiket late, around 1pm, with Rick-Dom
- Saw some cosplay, didn’t take photos of much
Caption: Shooting out here is kinda tough, the sun is really harsh. The umbrella catches it very nicely though, making for a really soft backlight. Not sure what character she is.
Caption: K-On! is popular as ever, I need Ast to tell me if the guitar is accurate. :3
Caption: Happy to see a Kurisu here, though she’s a tiny bit sloppy.
Caption: I love watching the crowd from up here, it’s like playing Where’s Wally. Can you spot a pair from Angel Beats? How many Inu x Boku cosplayers? An original TV series Asuka in school uniform? A maid? Naked Snake? Yoko’s huge gun? Madoka in school uniform?
- Rolled around West halls real chill, picked up stuff for Retro and Omochikaeri
Caption: Hm I guess 5/4TAKEPOD is sold out then…
- Random CD acquisitions, Brilliantez and something else
Caption: At the end of the day, just… relaxing.
- Photos of sunset over Ariake
Caption: The sun’s dropping quickly, and it’s barely 16:30.
Caption: Cool jacket, bro. Actually, I do wonder what the Japanese know/think about ‘Nam.
Caption: Taking it easy, having a smoke.
Caption: Sitting at the ferry terminal next to Big Sight after a long day. The ferris wheel belongs to Tokyo Leisure Land over on the next artificial island, Daiba.
Caption: This thing is a bloody eyesore!
Caption: Kanojo ga Flag wo Oraretara sounds like a typically awful light novel plot. Buuuut the kinpatsu-kko with checked skirt and zettai ryouiki is raising all my flags, and the illustrations are by CUTEG so…
- Second season of Railgun has been announced, posters
Caption: Woooah is that what I think it is!?
Caption: HOLY SHIT IT IS, A SECOND SEASON OF RAILGUN FUKKEN YESSSSSS!
Caption: Twintail~ <3
Caption: Crossing the bridge between the station and the dorm, that’s the Rainbow Bridge off in the distance.
- Got dinner at western restaurant in UDX building. Yay for new years eve
Caption: I’ve had mango beer plenty of times back home, it’s nice. I know what the others are and I’m not keen on the concepts, so I’m going to try a Shandy Gaff.
Here goes nothing…
Caption: My shandy gaff has arrived. I can’t tell if there’s any beer in there or not. I think there is?
Caption: A safe choice, a burger.
Caption: Asahi’s attempt at Guinness. It’s not bad, but not as heavy, and the head really doesn’t last.
Caption: I’m too lazy to read all this, but I can see that she’s reading an ero-doujin and… I’m guessing there’s a sale over the new year period.
- Stayed out in Akiba for new years roll over, with Blitz and crew
- Dr Pepper for a toast
Caption: We don’t have any wine or champagne to celebrate with, so Dr Pepper will have to do.
- Gamers had a countdown, and sold fukubukuro
Caption: You’re not really meant to peek into the fukubukuro. Not that it really matters, there’s so much stuff in there that you can’t easily tell if you’ve got something worthwhile.
Caption: The first buyer is out of the store!
- Hung around for about half an hour watching people trade stuff
Caption: Oh my God this girl was such a bro! She’s an IM@S producer and madly in love with Yukiho.
- Some silly things happen as well
Caption: This “lucky” chap collected over a dozen copies of Lucky Star Vol.9 from other people, I guess it really didn’t sell well in store.
Caption: Same girl again, with aalllll the Idolm@ster.
Caption: Suwa-ko mascot
- Headed back to Shin-Kiba, ended up not doing karaoke for new years rollover
- Ageha is running a New Years Eve party, admission is 6000 yen!
Caption: Looking for her train.
Caption: Trekking through Tokyo station.
Caption: I’m always on the lookout for style, not disappointed here.
