I'm Sorry Japan...

...But the potential of meeting a celebrity in one spot within 4 days in Japan is (exaggerated estimation) a million to one! I'd really like to go an experience Japan as I am now instead of when I was only 5, but the cost can be expensive. So to me it was an unreachable goal especially when my hours at work was cut by a 1/4. Perhaps with my added work hours recently I'll be able to go within a year.

So I imagine you've guessed why I'm not going to Japan anytime soon, right? Is it the picture (that I "borrowed" from Flickr) of the banner of Anime Expo that gave it away?

Nyagato ~Metamo Version

"Nyaa..." In a deadpan voice as Yuki would've put it. This is the Metamo version of Nagato Yuki made by Bandai. Probably one of the only nekomimi Nagato Yuki (or should I say Nyagato?) figure around aside from the trading figures.

Or souvenirs, I should say. Recently I've received some of them from very good friends. One from a while ago and another just recently. I didn't really ask, but they were kind enough to send some to me... Well okay, I did ask for one thing ^^;

Yuri Mania 30

Gokigenyou minna-san. There has been some news about the Maria-sama ga Miteru live action movie ever since I talked about it last month. Also thanks to Yi who Tweeted about this around that time, but I seem to have lost that link now ^^; The pictures here came from the end of April, but I could only post it now to wait for more updates. Not a lot more updates since then, but at least I'll post them here nonetheless. The movie is slated to be released in Japan in Fall of 2010.

Saber's Fake Birthday

I feel that I have failed as a Saber fan... I didn't realize that today, May 13th, is her birthday. I didn't realize she even had a birthday because she's an ethereal being. But of course she is supposed to be a historical figure, a hero, so she was a real person with a real birthday. Thanks to joeltng from Twitter for the reminder. I didn't prepare for anything unfortunately... But I did take this picture of the door to my room recently. It's a wall scroll that is custom made that I got from a store I hardly go to. It was hanging on their glass door, and I immediately drooled for it. Thankfully it was for sale and I bought their last one. I hung it on my door right away.

Edit: Not really Saber's birthday on May 13th unfortunately. I've been supplied with a fake date... orz. I apologize if I ever created some kind of confusion regarding this date. Her actual birthday is unknown... But since I already made it, let's just have fun with it!

Admirin' Iron Man 2

After watching the first teaser trailer for the first Iron Man movie, I knew I want... nay, NEED to watch it! I regretted not watching Iron Man right away in 2008, and I regretted not watching it enough multiple times in the theatres. So with the release of Iron Man 2, I had the opportunity to watch it right away and I took it! I even stayed up late to get Iron Miku up and running before I go to the IMAX version at 10 AM on Friday... The IMAX screen really showed the details well, but I don't think it's necessary to watch this movie, especially if you have to pay extra $5 to watch it.

Video Games Live 2010 - Vancouver

This is actually my third time attending Video Game Live, but the first time I kept record of it ^^; I seem to forget lots of things if I don't keep track of them, so this is why VGL is now on my blog, especially the song list. That's one benefit of a blog, it keeps your memories for you XD

So the third Video Games Live took place on Thursday before Iron Man started the next day. And I wanted to see Iron Man 2 right away... It's been a very busy week for me ^^;  The venue for VGL seems to change every time they come. Our seats were in the balcony and my brother picked the seats where we would have nobody in front of us. Very cool seats! Except there were a lot of people walking back and forth... Nonetheless it was another great orchestra, even if some of them have been done already.

Iron Miku Suits Up

If you're reading this at 10 AM on Friday, the seventh of May, that means I'm at the IMAX theatre watching Iron Man 2. When the first movie came out, it was a sure thing that I will watch it. The trailer just made it so damn cool and when I did see it, I regretted it... That I didn't watch it on the first day! I think it was even better than Dark Knight that came out in the same year, in my opinion :P
