So this is our last night in Tokyo our hotel is in the Hamamatsucho Area it’s the train station closest to Azabu Juban. It’s a sad thing to be leaving Tokyo, when you spend a couple of weeks here you develop a feel for it, and get pretty good at going where you want to go and finding the right restaurants /clubs etc. basicly figuring out how to live in Tokyo. And then it’s time to go home, I wouldn’t mind if this was my home mind you, It’s a wonderful country and full of friendly, polite people. There are so many things happening in the city, the museums, temples, shrines, street life, the various reigional hapenings for the lollies, fruits, rockers. Spontaneous music shows, rainging from bagpipes in Yoyogi Park, to random girl bands playing just outside the train station. not to mention the jazz singer on the lower observitory at Tokyo Tower tonight. Its just an incredible place, like no other in the world. For those of you who have been patiently waiting for me to return so I could complete our trades. I promise you I will take care of that promptly because ACen is in two weeks but that’s another post,and speaking of other posts I will have one coming up on my visit to the Sailor Moon cafe, Ja….Ne!.
I went to the Tamashii Nations display of the S.H.Figuarts Sailor Moon in Akihabara today. I was there when the gates went up at 12 noon. It was a lot of fun to see new Sailor Moon merchandise being offered. Of course I do realize there have been new American releases, but this is the first big figure announcement, and a sign of things to come.
The display featured three examples of the figure in different poses, several life-size posters, and the promo video on loop. The pictures I’m going to post are the best I could manage with my cellphone today. If you could please turn your computer monitors 90 degrees to make up for my lack of smart phone picture editing skills. Thank you. Oh,and thank you to the random volunteer who held up my card in front of the giant mural, awesome job!
Coming to you live fromTokyo Japan with Sailor Moon news. I came across a new add for the Sailor Moon figure, and a rumor that there’s a gigantic poster right now in Akiba, it’s 20:47 right now Tokyo time but I’m going to go look for it tomorrow, there may be a showroom as well. The Add features the original art from the original anime and Sailor Moon’s original Japanese voice actress, who says hello Tsukino Usagi here, it’s been awhile. It also features views of several faces that go with the figure including a crybaby face and a wink face, both of which are adorable. I will keep you posted. I’ve been out of touch with you guys because I’ve been in Japan for two weeks so now you know what I’ve been up to.
