So today started well I had a lovely sleep in then jumped on the net and looked up places to shop and discovered some wonderful things about mandrake! So I decided to go to nakano broadway today instead of shibuya. It turns out (2:30pm) I have time for both!

I started the day with animate thou and even though I got there at opening time it was already jam packed! Ah well what can I do?

I didn't find any saiyuki stuff but instead brought a darker than black book and a tiger bunny doujinshi.


When i got back to the hotel to drop it back off I when through this free summer anime guide, boring boring boring, Saiyuki gaiden...!!! Weee so worth the while! A double spread of our boys! >< yay! At the back there was also a kenshin section is Sano!!! Ooo im do happy <3


Nakano broadway is awesome it has 3 different levels and lots of different things being sold :) i of course focused on saiyuki. But I did pick up a few yugioh related figures while I was there.

I couldnt take photos in Mandrake but heres a picture of the map!


what I did buy is here
- saiyuki doujinshi
- saiyuki animation sketches
- complete set with folder of collectables cards
- requeium special movie exclusive book and flyer
- seth/ dark magician / seto figurine from yugioh
- pokemon pencil board (original 150)

When I was looking for saiyuki pencil boards and I found the pokemon one there was a girl decked out on Lolita goth clothing she was lookog at yu yu hakusho. I told her I was a kurama fan and she looked up and said she was a heie fan. She pointed at the board she then asked what I was looking for and I told her saiyuki and she told me she was a goku fan and I said I loved hakkai and she said he was cool. I agreed and we laughed a little. When I found the pokemon board I pointed to freezer /articuno and told her That was my name reicheru freezer she was amazed lol. :) it was nice talking to someone else (In broken English / broken japanese) it made me remember why this is the place I belong.

I'm on the train now headed for Shibuya for more shopping and walking it's 3pm I haven't eaten yet.

Shibuya is mental with so many people going in all different ways here are some pictures :)

Shibuya crossing )

Holly crap i am the god of good direction (i have very good direction skill :D) i totally navigated myself to Mandrake without knowing the foggiest idea where i was meant to be XD my Saiyuki senses mustve been leading me there hahaha.

Actually before i found the Mandrake i found a tokyo hands store, do you guys remember the bonus chapter of saiyuki reload 1 where hakkai changes there clothing and gojyo asks if he got it from Tokyo hands? well as i was taking a photo of tokyo hands and snickering to myself over that i realized i was opposite mandrake XD Wooo!

I didnt find anything else other than Doujinshi and a DVD for saiyuki there but that was enough :) I met another english speaker though, this time a mandrake shopkeep as they talked to me about Saiyuki and asked me where i was from and told me they wanted a pet koala... i didnt have the heart to pull the drop bear joke on them i thought it would be too mean. XD

After i dropped this off at the hotel i then went to the Ikebukuro shops again and found some more doujinshi at Kbooks. But.. when i went back to Mandrake i found another english speaking Shopkeep and she found me EVERY saiyuki/minekura thing in the shop <3

Including some of the wonderful following
- stickers
- original sketches
- 1998 Calander (lol)
- Saiyuki note pad with a ACTUAL signature by Minekura, not a printed one!! an ACTUAL one!!!! :D!!!!

Alright people what are we waiting for, PICTUURES!!!

Shopping spoils for today! )

Tomorrow i am off to Fuji-San wish me luck :)
