Japan: Back to Akihabara and Ikebukuro

So this was basically the last day for me to be able to do some shopping here in Tokyo with Comiket and moving to praedestinatio former host family next week. So I went back to Akihabara to finish up some shopping. I went and bought gifts and a few things that's intended to go up on eBay when I get back.

For instance, I picked up the Special Edition Gameboy Advice Micro: Final Fantasy IV. But when I got back and opened it... it's so pretty. 8-/ I dunno if I want to sell it now... ok, I'll set a really high bid price and they have to pay it for me to part with it. X-D

I then went back to Ikebukuro to meet up with the girls. But we missed each other. X-/ Later that night we both said we were there at the time we said. So we must have walked right by each other and not realized it. 8-O

So I went to the Sakura Cafe for dinner. Yay! Sakura Taisen! :D This is my second time back there. I went there earlier, but didn't get a chance to blog about it yet. I swore I wasn't going to get anything else there and just get dinner, but... well that didn't work. In addition to the grab bag and other goodies I got last time, I picked up a subtle, black ST t-shirt and a very cool Coquelicot collapsible coat hanger. It was labeled "nunchucks" which is why I didn't see it the first time. Then I had dinner. Mmmm it was really good. I don't know what the name of it was, but it was baked shrimp and cheese over rice with two halves of a croissant on it. I'm assuming it was "Iris'" meal. I also got the cherry cola, ala Sakura. :D

I also picked up a flyer that shows off what the girls are doing in the next Live Action Musical. I'll take a picture of it later. It looks neat! :) Also, they have a Playstation Portable (PSP) with video from the upcoming PSP versions of Sakura Taisen 1 and 2. Man, HOW many versions of that is there now? The original Sega Saturn version, Dreamcast, PC, PS2... just go on and translate it to English already! :)

After that I went and hit the UFO catchers! X-D I got some really good stuff! I got a lot of Bleach plushies, one I'll keep the rest will go up on eBay. X-D I also got this really neat Haro (from Gundam SEED) that glows different colors! X-D It's cute, I intended for it to go on eBay, but now I don't know. -_- I swear I need to stop playing with the toys I'm intending to sell. X-D

Ok, that's enough for me. I need to get some sleep because I'm heading for Comiket tomorrow! Woot! X-D I'm going to wear my Musical Ohgami Tux. Though I do have my Zack with me... I'll decide tomorrow which one I'll wear.

Sorry, no pictures this post. Need to get some sleep.

Night all! :)
