Tag: WAHXJAPAN ’09

the beginning of the end

I was kind of staying away from posters in my Japan place because a) I wasn’t sure if the walls could handle it, and b) too much work. However, having just gotten my hands on the old December 2008 issue of Megami (with poster) I couldn’t help myself. It...

Shitsuji Tora no Ana 4: A Hayate no Gotoku Only Event, 05/06/09

First, let us open with a story told in pictures along with some not-very-witty commentary. It took me longer than I thought it would to get there. Not too long, but longer than expected. Resulted in me arriving 30 minutes late, but I knew I was running late right...

The Guns of SHAFT (1961)

Monday, May 4th. 11:30. First day of Golden Week. Generally establishments are closed during this series of holidays, so as a precaution I ring up SHAFT’s “Filming and Digital Division.” After just one ring, a man answers. “Yes, this is SHAFT.” His voice is heavy with fatigue–as if he...

The Hunt For Sophia Manken

Freshman week. Lots of people. Can’t see a thing. Crowded. This scene is right out of Genshiken. None of these clubs look interesting. I’m searching desperately the one. I turn right and see… The Strongest Fairy. This can be no other club but… The Sophia University Comics Society!!...

Demon City Akihabara

Akihabara is not a paradise. It is not a wonderland. It is not heaven. Akihabara is rape. Even now, the events that transpired between 13:00 and 20:00 are fuzzy at best. At some point I bought a bunch of shit, and at another point I noticed I was down...

Evening Stroll

My head hurts. Ever since I’ve gotten to Japan, the misguided and borderline retarded cries of English language anime fandom have driven me crazy. I need to let off some steam. In an attempt to clear my head, I take a walk. Even though I’ve been in Japan for...
