Japan loot 2016

Got this Guts figure for only 4800 yen which I think is a steal cause someone else was selling it for 12000 yen.

Just the regular versions. I did drink a lot of Hakushu 12 and Yamazaki 12 in Osaka but I don't think I'll be able to tell the difference.

Dak Souls 3 with map and soundtrack.

Might double dip and get the PS4 version as well.

Project Diva X with special cover from Softmap.
and banner.

Couldn't decide between the PS4 or Vita version.

Playing Setsuna made me long to revisit this classic.

Got the Vita verson to support Ikenie to Yuki no Setsuna.

Ryu ga Gotoku 10 years anniversary book.

Hatsune Miku Daiba de Diva X

March 24 is a big day. Not only is Project Diva X out, its also the release day of Dark Souls 3 and Dead or Alive Extreme 3.

Starting on the 24 March at Sega Joypolis in Odaiba.

I wish I had time to take the rides.

Igiari! Objection! I need to replay the first game in Japanese.


Some fans brought stuff for Mikudayo to take pictures with.

The one sucky thing was that the live concert was just Project Diva PVs instead of live Hatsune Miku concerts. Made me regret not going for the concert in Fukuoka.

That is not me.

Hotaru's mama treated me to sushi. Bloody expensive when its not kaiten sushi.

Actor Takuji Kameoka review

When I first saw the trailer during my last trip, I knew I had to watch this. A movie featuring two usually supporting actors about an actor who plays bit parts? Sounds about right for me. I tought I had missed my chance but Theater Shinjuku is doing a limited rerelease along with 100 yen no Koi.

The movie starts with a bang. An ikemen actor is shooting a death scene and Kameoka is just a background actor in said acene. Ikemen actor trashes a lot before dying and director has Kameoka show him how to die quickly.

Another funny scene has Kameoka acting in a hostess club scene with a pure amature and the decided to change the fake alcohol into real alcohol to cope with the situation.

Boxing glove from Ando Sakura's
100 yen love.

I'm loving Kameoka until halfway, eager to call this a must watch and then the story starts getting more 'artistic' or abstract especially with the stage story before finally getting back on track at the end where he is asked what is the secret of acting.

The writer should have kept the broad comedy going instead of going a bit artsy. Its still a watchable dark comedy but I wished the story had more momentum in the middle. Watchable.
