Super Comic City & other dangerous places
Not the longest report possible on today, considering I got... very few hours of sleep, got up at 5.45 AM, and am planning on doing it all again tomorrow! ^_____^ But! It's a report, yay!

Um. Somehow, 50 doujinshi (give or take a few - I'm tired enough to see double) seem to have followed me home. They. Um. They're not all mine? Only most of them are and I blame kagenami! For taking me places! And making me buy things! I was resiting all along, with lines like "Oooh, that's pretty!", and "Good Kenren x Tenpou Gaiden story, you say? Gimme that!".


Okay, so! Yes, had a fun day, and even got to speak to avalonjones on the phone! In the Yodoyabashi train station in Osaka, at 7.20 AM, because this world is wonderful like that. (Hi! Sorry I wasn't more coherent - wasn't awake was the thing. But it was nice speaking to you!)

As with Comiket, it was absolutely awesome to get to meet the doujinshiya in person. kagenami introduced me to a few (it was hilarious to be referred to as, more or less, "that sweet child", who was obviously dragged along here innocently and unknowingly!), and I worked up the courage to subject a few others to my sad Japanese. (Sad because I can't seem to wrap my brain around the concept of letting me say things I usually know how to say when I'm actually trying to use it to speak with people.)

What I remember best right now is finding a One Piece circle I'd bought one doujinshi from at Comiket, and getting a couple more of their things. (Young Iceburg & Franky, so sweet and pretty!) I was asked it if I was a One Piece fan, and replied that of course, I love it, and I loved their book - bought it at Comiket! Which the artist sitting right next to the person I was speaking to at the moment was really happy to hear. And then I noticed they were selling a Norland & Calgara story, and grabbed it with a little whoop, saying I loved those two. Which made the girl I was talking to so pleased she promptly shoved a set of their Norland/Calgara art postcards at me - free! I was so stunned and happy I can only hope I managed a properly polite thanks - they're really gorgeous, but it's mostly overwhelming how nice these people are. ♥

Happy and overwhelmed - that's my general state of mind right now. Had a fantastic day, a lot thanks to kagenami's great company. I also have a heap of awesome new loot. Off the top of my head I can remember getting stuff for a few new fandoms, including Twelve Kingdoms, Final Fantasy VII (I didn't meant to, it just kind of happened why must people draw such pretty Zack x Cloud?), Death Note and D.Gray-Man. I can also remember getting a whole heap of new used (...that sounds bizarre) Saiyuki, a few Wild Adapter (tiny little fandom, so glad to find stuff for it) and some GetBackers.

I think - I think I should sleep now. And stop worrying about whether I have enough money for tomorrow's Super Comic City. (I don't. Tomorrow is Saiyuki and GetBackers and various others that - oh, I'd never have enough money, but I have way too little now. And that's probably a very good thing.)

Meep. How will I get it all back home again? That joke about a suitcase full of doujinshi is looking less and less like a joke. OOPS. ^^;;

And this was all very, very incoherent. I know. I'm afraid I can't fix it - I'd probably only make it worse. It'll be a beautiful testimony to my present state of mind later? (Speaking of incoherent...) Right. Oyasumi!

Aw, Comikat sounds like a blast!

Are you going to the Himawari (did I get that right?) Saiyuki play in Tokyo next month? I totally missed the news on it!!!

I have to move to Japan one day ;)

Comiket and Super Comic City both were awesome, but so dangerous! My money's all gone bye-bye. ^^;;

Ah, no - will be leaving the country next month, unfortunately.

Japan is a wonderful country to live in. ♥

It was great to talk to you too--and don't worry, I wasn't all that awake either, as it was the end of the week for me. Glad you had a good time! Go get some rest!

It was an interesting experience! We should do it more often. ;)

Rest is good. But then I'd have to clear my bed of doujinshi... Um. It's probably a bad sign when they start taking over your room, right?

Doujinshi collection mysteriously doubling again? XD

Hope you got some sleep, and I'll see you soon! *hugs*

I. Uh. Well. Yes? Kind of? Except more than double! ^^;;;;

Glad to see you're having so much fun. Though those doujinshi musteriously following you kinda worry me... :D

They worry me to! It's very strange. I can't imagine how that could've happened. XD

It's prolly a sideeffect of the rising manalevel in the world. :D
