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.

Using a two table lamps that I had and a box that was lying around, along with some drawing paper that I had lying around, I started cutting and taping and ended up with a little lightbox with which to do my figma pose photography from now on!

Today I took a bus downtown and sat at Starbucks to write up a report. Since this involves the Federation Starfleet and defense technology, I can't really say much about it, but I took Kagamin with me to keep me company.

"You know, I've been thinking... The new season's already here, and most of the summer season shows are already ending. Its like we're coming into a new stage of life again. Time passes really quickly doesn't it?"
"Yeah"

So yesterday Seto's encounter with a box seems to have produced some monster drops. One of those monster drops was a Kagami cosplaying as Miku nendroid. I have said many times before that Kagamin's cosplay of Hatsune Miku is such absolute win, it might take another 1 billion years before another race dominates the Earth and creates something more moe than this. In other words, Seto has very high LUK. I should give her the +10 LUK brooch of Nehalem sometime.

Some of you who hang out with me would know that I broke my Kagamin figma's neck on Tanabata. Which is why I used Kagamiku in the picture instead. It was no accident. But the Kagamin figma's neck breaking was. It was a very bad omen for me. I had a bad time at work and nearly got into an accident. All is fine now however, as I faced my fears and set out to repair my beloved figma.

Its Tanabata today. But more importantly, its Hiiragi Tsukasa and Hiiragi Kagami's birthday today! Feel free to send them presents!

After trying hard to work with what I've got, I've come to the realization that I may need more extra figmas than I thought. I'm sure Kagamin wouldn't like Konata laughing at her after begging her to dress up like that. I mean, who would?

So if sitting here in a boring room waiting for your favorite show to finally finish downloading isn't bad enough, you get showered left right and center by sentence after sentence of what a paranoid you would consider potential spoilers, and part of you would start to think about the philosophical question of whether or not you will live to finally be able to watch Toradora 25. Have you had that experience? Because that's what me and Kagamin are both feeling right now. To top things off, the ISP doesn't seem to give a damn and provides us with their regular friendly service: disconnections every 5 minutes and a choked pipe, as well as a prerecorded telephone support welcome message saying "your call is important to us. Please hold". Oh the oxymorons and idiosyncracies of modern corporations.

All of us have been waiting so long for this day to watch it together, yet we're being served cruelly by the very thing that makes us realize we still have a life to live. We wait, and wait and wait, trying to preoccupy ourselves with other things and yet the day never seems to come. I can tell you when you really want to watch an episode of something, waiting for it is akin to catholic zealots awaiting the second coming of Jesus. Its that serious.

It also seems Haruhi's getting impatient, and the night seems darker than ever before.
