I had joined my friend Karis-chan to the J-Pop Culture Festival 2014 at Yamashita Park, Yokohama yesterday. The event is to celebrate the Anniversary of Yokohama Open Port and it purpose is to promote Japan’s Pop Cultures(Anime, Cosplay, Dance, Singing, Idols).
Photo with Alodia!
Our main purpose that day is to see Alodia on stage. Since her stage is at 1700, we have the whole morning to walk around and taking photos with other cosplayers. I loved to see cosplayers especially those who cosplay on Vocaloid series.(Everyone know I love Hatsune Miku and had played lots of her songs with Harmonica.) I was lucky enough to be able to see some Miku Cosplay right away when we reached the Park.
Cute! Not to mention she is the famous Miku Dancer who make dance covers in Youtube! Thanks Shino Ryuuga(紫乃 龍雅)-san for the photo.
Guess most of you are watching this season most pretty Anime, Chihaya Furu. It’s about a story of a groups of youngster playing Karuta(Japanese Card games with fucking boring artistic words writting on it).
Karuta in a box.
And Today I got to see the real deal for myself. ^^ A groups of Japanese decided to show us the Karuta Games and we played together. ^^
Playing. Too bad we didn’t have Tatami or I really would like to try shooting the card and stuck it at the wall. lol.
Although it’s the Karuto Game, it’s different type of card… Too bad I didn’t get to see the 100 poem type of cards like in Chihaya Furu(Wished to posing with the Chihaya Furu card. ^^)
The one we are playing with today is beginner type. Named “Iroha karuta”. Iroha in Japanese kinda meant “ABC”.
Last few days I had been to the Famous Comic Market in Japan, A.K.A Comiket for short. I was plan to reach there at 11.00 a.m. but due to some problem of my friends(overslept. lol), We reached there at 1.30 p.m….
This is the nearest station to Tokyo Big Sight. As usual even it’s already 1.30 p.m. still tons of people there.
Spotted Itasha of Aya Shameimaru from Touhou Project when waiting for friend.
There is a new Gameplay video for the coming up SEGA’s game “K-ON! After School Live!!”. I see that it included holding on the note, pressing arrow key while stomping on the OX△□ buttons. I’m glad that it’s not just a “single note” patterned game like Project Diva Hatsune Miku the 1st .
With Project Diva Hatsune Miku getting so successful, SEGA is bringing us another new game featured all our Favourite K-ON member’s band life!
The playing system is almost the same with Project Diva, but without the note flying out from unexpected points. ^^ We will have members of K-ON club playing their guitars/keyboard/drum at the background.
You can also play multiplayer mode up to 5 friends using the ad-hoc mode. Each player will play different music notes from Yui, Mio, Azusa, Tsumugi or Ritsu. ^^ Can’t wait to get this game for myself too.
The game K-ON! After School Live!! is scheduled to be release at 30 September 2010 and the price will be 6,090 Yen.
Last friday I had went to the famous Japan Pop Cultures blogger, a.k.a Danny Choo event named “CGM Night”. This is the 8th time of the CGM Night and I had joined 3 before. You can check out of my previous entry of the CGM Night here:
All the people that night. It’s really hard to fit all people in this small hall.
As usual the CGM Night is a gathering of famous blogger’s which have great interest in Japan’s pop cultures(anime, games, figures, dollfie…). The word CGM stand for “Consumer Generated Media”, which meant media(blog posts, news, feeds, tweets..) which wrote by consumer itself. You will need to be an active blogger and own a Twitter account to join the CGM Night.
As usual, the night started by introduction speech(very short and funny) from Danny Choo himself. A simple introduction of tonight’s guest and rules and then have fun!
This is the only photo of Danny which I took clearly that night… Sorry Danny ^^”
Mr Sugiyama from Digital Hollywood Studio. Thanks for the venue that night. He looked really fit in with all the cosplayers.
Guess what? We have Suzumiya Haruhi’s Advertisement again. This time it’s a Chewing Gum’s advertisement from Lotte.
It’s about a guy who chewing the gum. And then he go to some boutique shop. Then the worker there told him that they are out of stock. The guy is feeling so sad that he sighed. Then the worker who smell his breath suddenly turned into Mikuru-chan!
Then the boss who saw that rushed over and say “Do you think it’s okay to turn people into Anime?!” The guy apology about it, but then the boss turned into Suzumiya Haruhi and say ” You are not bad!” with her bright smile.^^
The guy got scared then rushed out from the shop and found himself a corner. When he sighed again, this time the cats rested on the floor all turned into Nagato! Nya~~
Well, Guess you should just watch it for yourself. ^^
So they changed the LOGO to HTT which mean, 放課後のティータイム (Tea Time After School).
I finally brought myself to watch the second season of K-ON! The name, K-ON!! (caution: it’s two !! there.) is very similar to the first season’s title name, K-ON! so most people will get confuse about it. ^^
The story is good too. Although I had read the K-ON Manga episode 3 before that, I can still enjoy the light-hearted story. The graphic is also improved from the last season.
But what I want to show you all today here is the OP and the ED of the anime.
The Opening is as lively as the previous one and we have Yui sing it. And we have the rotating camera shot of the 5 members playing the Opening song. That is awesome. ^^
I personally prefer the Ending of the anime. Rather than Yui shouting maniacly, I would prefer Mio’s singing. ^^ (That is personally my own point of view, I didn’t say Yui’s singing is bad either. ^^”) Maybe I’m started to getting tired of Kawaii-style? LOL
I had took part in trying out the Tokyo Realtime: Akihabara last sunday. Found out that Joseph Tame is asking people to help trying out their new product and giving some feedback through Facebook. I think it will be a good chance for me to get more about Akihabara. So I contacted him and took part in it.
This is the package you will got if you order it. A very cute Maid to at the cover.
Joseph Tame is from White Rabbit Press, publishers of the world’s No.1 selling kanji flash cards, the A0 kanji poster and Tokyo RealTime audio tours. He is also responsible for marketing, and assisting in the research for and production of new products to add to our catalogue.
Yesterday went to The famous Tokyo CGM Night Episode 7 Organised by Danny Choo. Got invitation from Lester Ho, my friend who is also from Malaysia. This is my 3rd times attending the CGM Night and I must said it’s a good oppurtunity to get to know new friends and learning the worlds.
You got to see Dollfies.
… the Famous Danny Choo~
