Decided to check Ikubukuro again Otome road is pretty good with this stuff last time I found the Hakkai cell and was very very happy. I started at animate, they didn't have the DVD I was looking for :( or any CDs I needed but I was able to find hard luck finally :) and they had a section with all the books u could buy to get the book mark soon brought they ones I most wanted to be able to get another set <3.
Then it was onto k books DVD/cd/goods shop. When I asked to see the Saiyuki DVDs they said they had none but I did find a cd that I *think* I don't have. On my way around the shop (looking for Saiyuki stuff anyway even thou they said they didn't have any) I found the DVD I was bloody looking for - the first musical they had it in the front showcase....=_= how did the shop keep not know it was there???!! So expensive but it's cheaper than I've seen it online <3 brought it and then headed upstairs to the goods section. Did they have new Saiyuki stuff?... Yes they did :D they had lovely stationary paper with lovely pics of the boys an a Sanzo badge I brought for the lovely helliongoddess twas cheaper than I quoted and it's a nice badge :( none of Hakkai.
After that I happily trotted off to mandrake, just incase there was porn I had missed.... Oooo mmmm ggg again another example of of people showed me the saiyuki stuff how they'd get my money! So I found heaps of oujinshi that weren’t there last time! Brought all the goodies and then I moves onto the wondering around the store.
Now Hakkai’s face is carved into my brain so please keep this in mind.
I walked passed a stand with magazine and noticed Hakkai, in his cloth holding a lap on the cover of one. Into the basket along with a another two which I assumed would also have Saiyuki related stuff inside as the two I didn't take (already had em) did.
Then as that rack had been deemed lucky I searched it some more for more Saiyuki stuff, saw something silver down the back oh look at that more badges yay! What's that? Is that Hakkai’s face under shit tones of bubble wrap oh look at that it is... I think I found a clock!!! XD (seriously thou Hakkai himself wouldn't have seen his gave though the wrapper like I did!)
Then onto k-books the doujinshi section! Asked them in picture talking (eg waiving my hands about) to open the fucking expensive Minekura doujinshi for me to check if there was at least enough hakkai in there to justify me spending 20475¥ on the damn thing (couldn't find the same one cheaper anywhere!!!) oh.. It's expensive cause it's her first one... Oh there’s lots of Hakkai ^_^ Siigh thank god for visas (first time I used it in a shop lol) and then brought some regular doujinshi cause they also had gotten some more.
( Todays spoils! )
So well today I am very very happy ^_^
Had lunch at TGI Fridays again and that was nice but while I was relaxing and eating a really bad downpour started it wasn’t so bad at first but then it started to bucket down and I got drenched before I had a chance to buy an umbrella by the time I had brought one I was soaked and even with it my bag (full of goodies was soaked) so when I saw a taxi I grabbed one!
The thunder and lightning is really bad! I'm a little afraid of both >_< so taxi is a better option.
Link to a video of the thunder and lightning and rain – sorry for the angle.
Tonight I had lots of energy horaah so time to go out for dinner! I went to the same little sushi restaurant I did last year. And got a sashimi platter and a sushi platter it was soo good!
( Dinner pics )
Now it's time for a little story my friends there is a story behind this sushi bar. However to save parties from embarrassment I am going to write this as a little fan-fiction of Hakkai/Gojyo (no funny business thou) in this story Hakkai is me. This is a TRUE story.
Title: the sushi bar.
( The Sushi Bar )
Hope you enjoy the pics and the fic :)
the first part of this post was written on my iPhone as per usual as my day went...
It's 2am when I'm writing this, I had a weird dream about buyin to much stuff and that it gave me acid reflux and woke up with bad acid reflux. Went to the loo, fell tired and bluer. Then I heard the wise words of a dear friend, telling me when I feel sick I should try and be sick, better out than in sorta logic right? Well that didnt work and now I do feel sick but not going to be sick sigh. Had a sit down shower to try and relax myself and I'm now pretty tried after writing this. Goodnight again.
When I woke up I didn't feel as bad but I used my durama charm to wish myself a healthy trip and once I woke back up after a nap I felt better. I then wrote some post cards and moved onto the - waaaaaaah!!!! I just saw mount fuji! (or Fuji san as Hakkai calls it in Urasai!)
I'm actually on the bullet train as I write this lol, just finishing mailing postcards and my latest box :( box count is lowish ATM *_* Tokyo should fix that! While sticky taping my box I cut my thumb quiet badly it was bleeding everywhere good thing I have lots of bandaids with me! this train is an express which is good :)
EDIT: took the bandaid off my thumb now, no wonder it bleed! it actully sliced a 5millemeter by 3 millimeter hole in my skin so i have a whole in my thumb the shape of a rectangle... :S
Jesus bullet trains are awesome Japan itself is awesome! U see so many awesome things it's not possible to capture them all!
Oops lol when I showed the conductor my ticket he told me I wasn't allowed on this train eep oh shit! He says he's coming back in a bit but I don't understand what's going to happen XD...
He came back with a peice of paper and told me I'll need to get off at the next station and to catch the train he had written down ;_; he didn't even charge me for being on the wrong train and when I asked he said "because u missed the train" the Japanese are so kind!!! In Australia I'd be slapped with a fine and kicked off quicker then u can say sorry!
Yay now I can technically can say I've been to Yokohama (station). Got to Tokyo and then my hotel in Ikebukuro hadn't eaten was hot and it was already 1pm comiket closes at 4pm and it takes an hr to get there will not go today will instead spend day shopping. This is a good idea *nod nod* not feeling very happy though...
Although a part of me is disappointed I think I'd be more disappointed if by the time I got there I could only spend 2 hrs looking around. Tomorrow I will try and get there early and even if I have to wait in line a bit at least I'll be there. Somehow I am now in a tgi Friday because I really felt some something didn't have to worry about eating lol. Yay chips :p haven't had them in aaages but I'll be shopping soon so I need my strength!
My hotel is very close to otome road which is where k books/mandrake/animate and where that giant saiyuki gaiden sign was posted :) should have stuff to buy there :) I think I would've pushed onto comiket if I would've had access to my room when I got there or if the taxi driver had actually driven me to the hotel rather than yelling at me and pointing at bic camera XD ah well can't go wrong with shopping can u?
Dear f-list at this point in my day the following had not occurred.
- seeing my room
I was honestly feeling a little shit. :(
Sooo I went to mandrake, fuck i love mandrake and came out with lots and lots of porn so much porn mostly Hakkai mmm porn. (doujinshi mind u but its still porn) Even found a couple of really good circles for Hakkai Gojyo and Hakkai Sanzo!!
In mandrake there were a lot of people which was surprising because i thought Comiket was on starting today (maybe i was wrong?) and there were two people cosplaying in the store one as tiger and one as bunny, but i couldnt get a photo of either which was fine but they both did it really well (both girls)
Happiness level 6/10
Then i went to K-books, up to the doujinshi level... ooo found more Minekura original doujinshis and yes it does have a topless picture of Hakkai awesome!! it was very expensive though and there was a second one there i wanted to buy but it was 20,000yen!!!!!! :| dont get me wrong... i will... try and justify it somehow, its uber old and has Goku on the front, but if it doesnt have at least one good Hakkai pic its a bit meaningless to me other than for collecting purposes.
Then found lots of normal Saiyuki doujinshi too and mind you there were heaps of girls going through the same section but i managed to get all the Hakkai/Gojyo ones :D hehehe. Again surprised at how many of these girls werent at Comiket the DOUJINSHI convention! Nah well.
Happiness Level 8/10
At this point my bags are very heavy filled with books and I didnt want to go to too many more shops before i went home as i can always go back in the next few days :) but then i figured id go to Animate (never got there btw because youll soon find out why)
I then saw the other Kbooks, u see, in otome road the Kbooks are split into 4 different shops. Id got to the general one, and the two doujinshi ones and was on my way to the CD/DVD and goods one. So i asked them as normal did they have saiyuki goods, and to my great surprise they said yes but not many. (this one fine i was happy to see what they had...)
HOLLY FUCKING CHRIST ON A PIECE OF TOAST NOT MUCH MY ASS!!!!!
THEY MIGHT NOT HAVE HAD QUANTITY BUT THEY MADE THAT UP IN FUCKING QUALITY OMG I CANT BELIEVE I NEARLY MISSED THIS BY GOING TO COMIKET...
RARE AND EVEN AWESOMER ITEM
NOW, THAT IS A FUCKING ORIGINAL CELL FROM THE ANIME I HAVE CHECKED IT THERE IS NO DOUBT IN MY MIND BECAUSE I HAVE SEEN THESE BEFORE AND THEY GO FOR SHIT TONES OF MONEY AND ARE NEVER AS NICE AS THIS ONE...
IT WAS $50... I fucking kid you not...
....<3333333333333333333333333333333 i have a Hakkai Cell... gods
Happiness level over 9000!!!
I then got back to the hotel with my goodies ready to share and found out the wonderful following.
- Breakfast is FREE no cheap FREE :D (i had money put aside to pay for it!)
- FREE wireless in the Lobby!
- FREE Ethernet in the room :( to bad dont have a computer, but wait...:O u can rent one for what i was going to pay for breakfast!!! A LAPTOP (i love laptops) YES FUCKING PLEASE!!!!
- Room is so epic its unbelievable... bathroom is amazing... hotel is amazing... Im close to a post office... and Otome road... ;_; (tears of joy btw) Kyotos shitty day of being sick has been replace but one wonderful day of finding all of my Hakkai love.. all of my Tech love and all of my comfort...
( Pictures of my hotel room and why its cool )
Im not going to take photos of all the Doujins... theyre too many.
But here is a run down. (bear in mind unlike our ridiculously over price for doujinshi these are 2-6 dollars each only one or two over 10 dollars)
Hakkai x Sanzo = 18
Hakkai x Gojyo (OTP) = 26 in (name of the rain, another one from aya and one from another circle i like)
Hakkai X ??? = 7
Good day! Lets hope my footy teams wins tonight to top off the epicness!!
So I start my tour on the bus for the morning kyoto tour and I'm still feeling a little meh but I ate breakfast and it hasn't come up or down so it's good :) I feel like being anti social today. Everyone there is very touristy no otakus :(
On the bus they were telling us where we were going and to my surprise we are going to the golden pavilion!!! (jinkaku? Or kinkaku?) it doesnt matter it was a nice surprise. Just this alone will mean it's a good day ^_^!
So, Nijō castle was beautiful and my First thought was bugger these stupid tourists, and tour guide, too slow. So I walked without them and because I did I got to see the entire castle and especially the beautiful grounds and looking point where u can see the entire grounds. The tourist group never got there :p my gain their loss heheh. I took some photos from my iPhone for you guys my wonderful flist so I could show u as soon as i did my next post :) please enjoy Nijō castle.
I found out the original golden pavilion was burnt down by a crazy monk (literally) because the temple was too beautiful? Sound some someone we know? Golden pavilion is kinkaku, although I can't remember which one of them was kinkaku was it was one that spoke to goku and hakkai in the weird world where hakkai first took his restraints off? Or was it the brother who thought the monster was his brother and tried to kill everyone for Gojyo? :)
On the bus I saw the bonfire spot on the mountain again, they explained it's the Chinese character for big and it's shaped like a human and they represent the buhda of the pure land. It was nice to have that explained :)
Kinkaku was awesome :p it was beautiful and because of all the over hanging trees it wasn't too hot :) I wondered away from the group again though really wasn't in a social mood. I donated some coins into one of those drop boxes and made a wish. ;) my wish is a secrete! Then found a place that you throw coins into and u try and hit the middle stone bowl but I failed XD I ended up spending around 400ish yen on this and making wishes a there were two places to make wishes and I used them both!
As we were walking out I saw a lone crow I tried to take a photo but the sneaky bugger flew off :p gotta looove those crows lol. Everything was saiyuki related at the place from my eyes hahahha.
I drunk the entire pocari sweat (recommended by evilchuckles
to help get my electrolytes back up) it's gross I hate it I feel it makes me more dehydrated then not drinking it's been three hours since I've eaten (apple and Inari) and I am fine :) (so far)
It's not as hot today because there is a cloud over the sky it's more pleasant :) I retract it's hot and I'm sweaty yuck. It's more humid and it rained nooo more sticky sweatness!
The imperial palace was lovely and again took lots of photos. I wasn't able to wonder away from my group if u do these "imperial guards" come and get u and take u back to the group (and I was only a meter away lolz!!)
So far I've only had a slight stomach ache and no need for the loo :s I'm a bit worried to eat anything sneaky or anything. On the way to the last place we passed over kyotos largest /longest river.
Looked around Kyoto hand craft center Was a bit meh but... But they did have some English manga... yes... they did have saiyuki =_= yes despite inner hakkais arguement I did buy It. Why you ask? Because after yesterday the though of not having something to read really freaked me out so I won't be sending it back it can get destroyed in my bag but atleast I have it :) I also brought a black rock shooter figurine for my friend and some lollies shaped like sushi both will make him happy I hope :)
While waiting for a free shuttle bus I was speaking to another couple from Melbourne they were old though lol. They went for collingwood who play the saints tomorrow I told them I was a saints supporter but collingwood is my second favorite team they laughed a little and then bagged out saint kilda. But heres the thing the saints ARE going to win! My mum is going to be there and I have brought her a good match charm to help us win!! I got it from kinkaku so I know it will be lucky! (because for me anything with saiyuki is lucky)
The Japanese still play old English music from the 80-90s I still dont understand why lol.
Animate had no saiyuki things :( but when I brought two other Minekura books I was hoping to get saiyuki clear bookmarks or something like that I wasn't sure what there would be because last animate didn't do anything. This one didn't seem to either so just as my hopes went down the lady serving me pulled aside a man, says god knows what pointed to my books, then when to a cabnet and pulled out the saiyuki book marks <33333 weeeee that made my day lol.
I then went to a cafe after eating a sandwhich, it was the plainest sounding and looking on the menu but it had bacon in it (which usually gives me no issues love bacon) but I figure it's better for me to sit for a bit and wait to make sure I'm ok before I storm off again :) did have a few stomach aches and a little burp or too cleared it up, still not 100% I'd say, I'll have a light dinner tonight from the convince store.
I then with my last bit of energy (was starting to feel more tired and the stomach was aching a bit, has settled down now- mostly) I grabbed three hairclips one for me, in Articuno blue, one for my dear veronicacode and one for a friend back home they had limited colours but veronicacode is getting the red one cause it's Gojyo red and I'm sure she'll like that :) ours match and I promised her they would so I'm happy ^_^
I then found a lovely incense shop an got some for me and a friend, might burn some tonight :)
I am so tired now (have been out since 8am and its now 4pm. I will be coming back to Kyoto on a half day trip on my second half of Osaka so that I can see the things I missed while being sick. Which will be easy as it's only 30 minutes from each other.
omorrow I leave Kyoto for Tokyo for comiket!!!! Wooooo!! ^_^ should be good. Right now it's raining :(
Here are today's spoils please enjoy ^_^
P.s this was written using me iPhone and using the lj app I found it's not bad, actually lol.
Posted via LiveJournal app for iPhone.
Ya know in animes when u hear those cicadas chirping and u think "it can't be that loud?" ooooh yes it bloody well can!!!! Theres a nest outside the front of my hotel :p and its all i can hear when i walk out of it!
Today is Den Den Town so I suspect I will get another two boxes to ship or so depending on how I go today *giggles like a crazy person* I have an extra 40000 yen to spend today *drools* because I've been a good girl up till now *___* bring on the shopping "Minekura kazuya no hon Wa arimaska?" "saiyuki Wa arimaska?"
It's to early for breaky or Internet so I'm watching Japanese tv.. I'm watching a Japanese infomercial it's very weird. but where is the animes??? ;__; i havnt seen any yet!!
OMG it's too hot for this shit running around for two hours shopping in this heat!! I'm recharging at lunch back in shin Osaka station I have dropped my first four shopping bags back at my room, only 2 saiyuki items a little disappointing :( but one was another saiyuki bag with the image of hakkai smoking so maybe losing the badge was a good sign.
Lunch was nice (sitting on the subway train as I write this) I ate quickly as I desperately want to get to k books :) I want some 58 fixin!! ^_^ I hope to arrive in another 30 minutes I'll leave k books for last thou that way I'm not shlepping books around like last time (did animate first) after this it'll be time to relax and read porn :p
It huuurts! Walking is killing me and cause I'm trying to lose weight while I'm here I'm taking stairs whenever possible. I was starting to get disheartened about not getting my full saiyuki fix when bahbadabaaaa kbooks in all is shining fucking glorie. Ladies if u want man x man porn go to k books they have it all, they also have the original saiyuki doujinshis by Minekura sensei. Last time "Junk" which I didn't buy (because i didnt know what was in it until now mind you) was 10500¥ this time 4500¥ wooo buying hahah I also brought 2 other of her doujinshis.
Also the giant metal bee is totally visible (why did we not fucking notice this last time) what happened was we took a photo of melon books and we noticed the giant metal bee and were both like wtf as niether of us had noticed it and we took the pic!!
Either way today was truly a shopping day and I spent a loooot of money (if ur gonna be in Osaka looking for hakkai pairing doujinshis at k books don't bother I own em all) and will be eating nice cheap takoyaki which I'll try and remember to photograph for everyone so u can see the awesomeness!!
Now it's time for me to relax and look at porn that said no way I can look at this all tonight XD
!!!!NOW.. i write these during the day on my iphone, so i can track what im doing, i had finished writing when the below happened, it is important saiyuki fangirls read this!!!!
Kyaaaaaaaaaaaaa OMG OMG OMG OMG!!! The Minekura doujinshi has Hakkai topless in a bath with sanzo 38 girls I wanna here ur squeee's!!! (i thought this was the cherry on the cake of my day)
(this is the cherry of the cake of my life)
Kyaaaaaaaaaaaaa OMG OMG OMG OMG!!! If I die tomorrow I will die happy because originally I wasn't going to get this book cause it didnt have any saiyuki boys on it (cover) but the shop keep pointed out that they were a set so I figured why not... My heart is still beating this picture... It says it all OMG Hakkai I will love u forever. Minekura u are either a god or a devil or perhaps both... My heart is still beatingso fast!!!
