View spoilerHide spoilerAtheist1 (28 days ago) #9422988Hi Leo
Sorry for the super late response. Work has been absolutely crazy AND annoying since I came back from vacation.
As usual, Japan was a dream. I had so much fun even though it's my 5th time there. There is alway something new to explore.
I went from Tokyo (6 nights) to Osaka (5 nights) to Hiroshima (1 night) and back to Tokyo (4 nights). On hindsight, I should have spent an extra night or two in Hiroshima and lesser nights in Osaka.
This was my second visit to Osaka. I found it "not-so-interesting" the first time in 2013 and I still find it "not-so-interesting" the second time. Sigh.....
The only thing I really, really adore about Osaka is the "hi-end" Pocky, Baton D'or, http://www.glico.co.jp/batondor/. You can only get it in Osaka. I realised that in spring, they offer mostly the coated ones. In summer/early autumn, you can find the sugar coated ones which I love. I suspect it's because the coated ones will melt in hot weather but that's my own logic. If you are ever in Osaka, try them. It's sooooo good.
I dropped by Kyoto for a day trip to complete my "anime pilgrimage". I had to visit Fushimi Inari (cos I forgot about it in 2013) and Kyoto Animation. They have shitloads of Free! stuff but not what I wanted - mostly acrylic straps, clear files, posters.
Below are some collages of the places I went:
FUSHIMI INARI

Figures wise, I didn't get much. I was on a hunt for Taito Kuji Honpo Free! figures and I managed to get 2 sets. One set I got it straight off Amazon Japan and another set, I got half of it from a shop in Den Den town and remaining half from Amazon Japan. They are:
Free! Eternal Summer Flower Afternoon

Free! Eternal Summer Marine Morning

And this Nagisa - because when I bought it in Tokyo last year, I thought Momotarou was Nagisa and ended up with 2 Momotarou but no Nagisa. Grrrrrr

I have yet to unpack them - they are still in their bubble wrap in my duffle bag. Sigh......
I also went nuts in the Uniqlo at Ginza (12 stories!!) and spent about SGD650 there. I also bought loads of skincare even though I only have one face - damage was about SGD1000. Sometimes I don't understand myself.
That's basically it about my trip. Going through withdrawal now. I need to start planning my next trip soon. LOL!!

View spoilerHide spoilerAtheist1 (3 months ago) #6850573LOL! You're so dramatic and I love it.
Life has been about work, work, work.
If I'm not working, I'm watching my anime, reading my fanfic and trying to squeeze more time to plan my itinerary to Japan. I will be going to Japan for my annual holiday from 24 Mar - 9 Apr. Wish it was longer though.
And I don't even have time to clean my display cabinets. I think I see cobwebs growing on my Taibani shrine. Sigh....
Watched any new anime recently?
I have a few must watch -
Boku Dake ga Inai Machi - This one is really good. The artwork is superb and the storyline is awesome. However I spoiled it myself cos I couln't wait for the next episode and googled for info. *kicks self*
Gate Season 2 - More drama compared to Season 1. I actually prefer Season 1 cos it was relatively stress free to watch but what the heck. Rory Mercury is such a flirt and I enjoy every minute of her.
Bubuki Buranki - I just love the art. It's more CGI, IMO but yeah. Storyline is a bit slow but I'm still watching.
Dimension W - This one is pretty cool too but I'm kinda confused with the story. It's slowly unfolding but as at episode 7, I go - "Just watch and see what happens."
Hai to Gensou no Grimgar - This one has the most beautiful animation. It's kind of like SAO but is not. SAO - we know that the players are trapped in the virtual world. For Hai to Gensou, the viewer does not know for sure. The characters (can you even call them players) just appear in this fantasy world. It's pretty slow paced but the artwork is worth the wait. Maybe the light novel readers get it better.
There are gonna be some pretty sad moments based on what I've searched online (kicks self again). One has already appeared in the anime and it got me depressed for days. Dun ask me why. I think it's the pace and feel of the anime that got me so emotionally involved.
There are others but I just watch them at random so I won't mention them here.
What about you? What have you been up to?



ahahhahahahahahahah im a Disciple of Scarlet O'Hara! Drama queen completely! LOL

Yeees! im fine just working and doing everything I can to be and forcing myself to be positive and happy LOL, have several plans im working on and so far this year has been really great!! ♥ since november I failed in exercising hahahhaha but march here we go! when I get really fit Ill send you photos! hahahah
