Day 2 of our Japan, and with proper sleep! It was tiring yesterday, so we decided to only have three items in our itinerary and stayed in one area—Shibuya. We had our lunch at Touken Ranbu x 2.5D Cafe in Harajuku, roamed around Omotesando, visited Meiji Shrine, and watched Shimono Hiro’s birthday live at NHK Hall. On our way home, we got sidetracked at a store and our budget is thanking us for not buying anything (although I’m so tempted!).
Cosplay Mania has always been an event I look forward to every October, though this year it started on the last day of September lol. This 2017 marks our 4th stage with Hall EX, and I’m truly grateful that they’re still giving us a slot. This is the only convention that I’m willing to attend both days even if it’s tiring.
I’ve known Best of Anime for a long time, but I never had the chance to go because it always has a conflict with my schedule. Thankfully, they held an Anime Idol Dance Battle this year. We then sent our audition video and passed the screening! What’s more is STARMARIE is coming back to the country and will be the judges for the finals. Wow.
After watching Hyper Projection Engeki “Haikyuu” Winners vs. Losers at Tokyo Dome City Hall, we went straight to Gallery AaMo for the exhibit. We chose the right schedule because the hype from the stage play hasn’t died down yet and here we are seeing the costumes, props, and stage they used in the previous plays.
To celebrate the first episode of Katsugeki/Touken Ranbu, I’m making this blog post to spam you with photos that I took when we went to the Touken Ranbu Honmaru-Haku Exhibit at Grand Front Osaka. The exhibit featured character designs and storyboards from the anime, different visuals from the stage play, and even the costumes worn by the musical’s cast. All in all, I took 280+ photos in two hours and that wasn’t enough tbh.
Warning: This post is image heavy. I compressed the photos, so they can load faster both in PC and mobile. Enjoy!
