With the advent of my Facebook account, my blog has regressed into a state of neglect, so I intend to post more of my stuff now on this blog instead. Last weekend I attended Anime Japan 2015 which was held at Tokyo Big Sight. After a whole night of endless karaoke and otaku shenanigans, the first train was not to hard to take, so I arrived early for the queue.

I don't often come to these themed cafes, primarily because they charge a lot for what I consider meagre excuses for served food and drinks. However since this one was a little harder to get in, and a nice friend invited me for an extra seat, I thought I'd take the chance and splurge a little. It actually wasn't disappointing, fortunately.

Today I and a couple of friends went down to Nakano to have a peek at the flowers blossoming. If you have been living under a rock, spring season is at its peak and the sakura season is well underway.

1) Twintails. This is the first time I saw good twintails on a girl. So now I know its possible, and that means the universe to me. And what's more, it looks like the kind of thing Azusa would do at music clubs AFTER finishing high school.

I finally got around to unpacking my suitcase which was completely filled with my figures. Besides the 12 books of doujins I got from the upstairs of Toranoana, one of my favorite shops in Akihabara. I also peered up the many stairwells to find figures that I could not find on online sites that struck my fancy, and I came across quite a few.

Since my trip to Japan last week was in the beginning of the year, the shops in Akiba had stockpiles of magazines. Among these magazines, several come wrapped together with little boxes of goodies. One of them was Dragon magazine that came with a Sakurano Kurimu nendo. I don't know what got into my head at the time I saw it but I actually had second thoughts. If I hadn't run back to buy this, I probably would not be able to imagine the regrets I would carry out of Japan.

Our main highlight today is Nakano. Actually I came here to see lenses. No seriously! Its not like I got drawn into Patty's subliminal messaging song with the Nakano Broadway constantly repeating in my head. >.>
