Back from Japan

September 12th, 2011

I’m back from a trip to Japan in rather hotter and more humid weather than I had hoped and have returned to rather hotter and more humid weather than I had hoped.

Nonetheless, much fun was had and, as usual, we stimulated the Japanese economy:
All the unopened bags on the left are filled with stickers, memo pads and a shocking amount of small items that would have been exhausting to unpack and twice as exhausting to clean up. So you’ll just have to imagine what’s in them.

  1. First off, holy shit!

    Secondly, you got a nice amount of booty there!

    Look Erica, you probably don’t need all of those works. You can certainly share maybe one or two titles^^

  3. @Justin – All but the doujinshi are available from Amazon JP – feel free to get your own copies! ^_^

    I truly hoped you found time to smack Negi Banno upside the head and told her to hurry up with volume #2 of SS Astro. If you didn’t… GET BACK ON THE DAMN PLANE.

  6. That title was cancelled a while back and my fan desires have no pull at all with publishers, sorry.

    Are those Heartcatch Precure characters wearing Marimite school uniforms?

  8. @Andrew – Yes, they are. It’s a doujinshi I picked up at Girls Love Festival. ^_^

    I am glad you had a great trip and brought back a chest full of treasures.

    How are the peoples’ spirits after the tsunami?

  10. @Robert Moore – the people in Tokyo are much like the people in any city. Life keeps moving on at an alarming rate.

    “Setsuden,” the program of consrving energy was in full force when I was there, and I saw mostly everyone in short sleeves, even older businessmen. Other than that, very little seemed to have changed. But Tokyo is not Tohoku, where cleanup continues and many people’s lives have been irrevocably altered. And, as I arrived, a typhoon was affecting a huge chunk of western Japan. Which is more important, the disaster 6 months ago, or the one right now?

    It’s tough in Japan right now, but people keep living, the way we do.
