My army has assembled. Hehehe.

Although I do regret not having enough time to search for Motochika, I think Lonely Cucumber Guy standing in a corner by himself really adds to the formation.

Also, the Yukari slippers are too good.

GOOSE IN MURRICA

GLORIOUS AMERIKA

I promptly dropped everything including shoes to pet the doge.

And now I have a ridiculously stupid amount of video games at my disposal. But first, mahjong. ;w;

It’s funny that these photos look so bright when it was something like 4 AM when I took them. Some parting photos of where I lived from my early morning adventure of waiting desperately for my shuttle to the airport and not being certain it was coming because I couldn’t contact them. Waiting alone in the hallway with my luggage felt like being in Silent Hill.

And now I survived the little flight and all the airport stress and I’m just waiting for my flight to Boston. Pheeeew.

After packing I can now say it is a good thing I didn’t win the figures after all because I would be coming back without shoes or something because there simply is no room.

Also, I realized that earlier I was musing over how it would be impossible to make good enough friends to stand with me as I buy doujins, but I actually went to Tora no Ana with my guy friends today and we browsed the BL section. They didn’t have anything I wanted though.

Parting day. ;-; Saying goodbye to the closest friend I made was really hard. It was also sad because there were some people from the other classes I made friends with but I feel like we could have become way better friends with more time and that’s always a shame. 

We went to Teramachi and I got totally done in by a cute crane game arcade employee. It was awful. He just kept putting different One Piece figures on the line and I really fuckin wanted them for Zoe and then he kept making the games easier but it was a crane game shop so of course it’s rigged. Also I’m a scrub. I feel disappointed that I couldn’t get them because I think Zoe would have really enjoyed them, but I also kind of feel like I paid the money for the excitement of playing stupid games and having a cutely enthused guy cheer me on and fan me. Which, I would have paid anyone to fan me at that point because it’s so stupidly hot. In the end I got something even though I didn’t win anything because that’s how they get you to come back I assume. 

Now, I need to actually pack (uguuuu) and then not sleep because my shuttle is coming at some unspecified time in the unimaginably early morning to pick me up. It’s fucking over guys. In so many meanings.

Takarazuka dayyy! Ahh, I still feel so happy and satisfied. My only regret is that I seriously should have done the unimaginably stupid awesome photo booth where you take a photo and it puts it into a photo of one of the actresses and you can get a phone strap printed of it because it looks so lame and it’s really amazing. As it is, my friend took some seriously awesome photos both of me posing with the cardboard cutouts and with the giant poster outside. I am obscenely excited for her to send them to me so I can make them my background and shit because I think they’re the funniest ever.

I had a lot of extremely complicated thoughts about the show and I decided that I’m going to have a serious talk with my adviser about if I could do an independent study on takarazuka and I think he would be down for it.

Also, yeah, I fucking bought the DVD because by the time I realized it was even more expensive than I thought, I was already deeply emotionally attached to buying the stupid thing.

Don’t let anyone ever tell you that dreams don’t come true. 

Really though, I’m currently immensely satisfied with my decision to invest in these stupid little guys because I’ve only gotten one duplicate so far. Keiji has a little tiny tiny tiny Yumekichi with him and I just can’t get over it. Sadly I’m not taking any out so that they survive the plane ride though, but I’m only missing like, Shingen and Motochika from my most desired list right now and I will probably buy a few more and give up if they’re repeats. I just really want Motochika ok I got Motonari so I need to have the sets of matching characters, o- okay…

Also, every cute accessory place in the city is currently doing stupid sales. 300 yen earrings. I bought a decent amount because we only have real earrings in America so this is my only chance. 

I also basically forgot that we have a final and it’s tomorrow because I had a rough morning and then did karaoke free time to sing my stress away which was amazing but I still left wishing I could sing more. Thinking about tomorrow I’m just thinking about Takarazuka, I am done with the final already in my heart.

I had a fun day with my friend. ;-; I managed to play the games I wanted to, except for GG sadly. But the best thing was playing the taiko and err funky circular rhythm games and doing some imas songs. The taiko game has fucking Nanairo Button and I basically died. I was also happy because I was pretty good at the funky circle thing because it’s so much like Love Live. Playing fighting games was still a pretty emotionally difficult experience. I played with my friend but she wasn’t exactly going to keep paying to play, and then no one else sat down so I just played arcade mode until she got bored while everyone stared at me. ;-; we did purikura too but this one’s auto-editing was really gross and made us both look hella weird.

Also, a tiny bit of why I bought the Yukimura charm thing is because I wanted photographic evidence of how unimaginably lazy the work on the paper thing behind it is. It’s just hilarious to me. Those pixels. I can’t. I was thinking I wouldn’t buy it because it’s silver and I can’t put it with my other charms but fuck it, I just put it on my other bag. I wanted to be a loser and put them together.

I also hate myself so much that I might go back and buy more of the random figure boxes pictured. I bought two from slightly different character sets and got Kojuurou and Sasuke and they’re adorable but they were both in the lower tier of my desired characters even though they kind of go together as a set nicely….. Considering I consider over half of the possible characters in the highest tier of want I dunno how that happened.

I have almost everyone’s souvenirs, but everything I see that I want for Zoe is in a UFO catcher and then I try it and then have to give up eventually so I’m still kind of lost. A-cho has a stupid amount of shit I want in fooking crane games like imas and sailor moon figures and this kills me because I know I’ll just waste money and give up. ;-;

This is how my cooking evolved while here. It also involved an egg at some point. The real improvement is that there is rice. I also just am fucking in love with this skirt and I’m trying to wear it out today with my friends. It’s on the shorter side of my comfort zone while I’m here so I dunno if I’m gonna make it but it makes me really happy so I hope I can.

Also hopefully I can bully someone into playing fighting games with me. ;-; I’m gonna be even more trash than before when I get back and I could technically have been practicing while I’m here but I didn’t end up wanting to go back to the arcade alone but today I’ll have an entourage. …of people who have never played before, so I dunno what I’m expecting.

Finally, sorry but not sorry that I became a photo spamming blog. My internet is hella bad so I can’t really look at my dash or reblog stuff, I just sit here making irrational posts and send them out into the ether and they eventually pop up on my blog. And I love everyone who replies thank you guys sorry I dunno the best way to answer you ;-;
