Cuz I just finished my touhou medley\'s Lunatic Ver.
Motherfucking yeah. Forty minutes of touhou goodness.
Cuz I just finished my touhou medley\'s Lunatic Ver.
Motherfucking yeah. Forty minutes of touhou goodness.
Just so I can shock w0lf and say I actually posted my introduction... hi there. I\'m Belldandy-sama. I\'m an encoder and typesetter here at Ahodomo.
I started working with Ahodomo around... episode 12 of Nichijou. Started out as an Editor/Timer, then when we were working on the one episode of Ikoku Merrio, I learned how to typeset and I found I was more skilled at that than timing, so I then made the transition to typesetter as a replacement for Alex when he isn\'t around.
Weeks later, I showed an intrest in encoidng and said I had a powerful enough computer to encode videos, so I asked Alex when he was on for a run through of basic encoding, and then just went from there. I\'d be more useful as an encoder if I were able to get my hands on transport streams, but we don\'t have a capper to give us any.
Unfortunately, some of our releases were slow in terms of download durring the initial seed... thats because I was releasing them. I only have an 80KB/s upload connection so... I can\'t say this enough, I\'m sorry about how ungodly slow those torrents for the two albumns, like 3 RKB episodes, and for 3 Nichijou epsidoes (I forget which episodes I released but I remember how slow they were going).
So, once again: Hi, I\'m Belldandy-sama, I\'m a typesetter and encoder here, and my internet sucks.
Ok. First off.
And I have my share too. Those are my rori doujins. Very beautiful I must say.
Though in general, I don\'t have much else to say on comiket day 2. (well, day 3 technically, but day 2 for me. I didn\'t go on friday.) There was a FUCCKTTONNNN of people, as in, like, probably 30k people. I got squished about 45342 times as I tried to walk to my circles. Hot as hell, but not as hot as saturday.
Though because I TRIED to help translate Nichijou 20, I had to wake up at 5AM, and because I was TLing, I missed my train so had to wait an extra 10 minutes for the next train. Because of this, I arrived at comiket at around 9:20, which is LATTEEEEE as hell. Because of this, there were already like 10k people on line ._. Goddamn it, Nichijou.
So after lining up for an hour, the line finally moved, and slowly (meaning over the course of a half an hour) I finally managed to get inside the building itself. After which it took another 10 minutes to walk to the doujins and stuff.
Oh my gawd, bro. I got to buy stuff from Nounai Kanojo (this time, it was Satori!) as well as Frenchletter (THIS GUY ONLY DOES REMI AND FLAN, ITS LIKE, RUVERY)
So here\'s a list of stuff I bought/got.

random other crap
Newest albums from:
Yuuhei Satellite Monochrome Coat Innocent Key TWO from Yellow Zebra Gensokyo for the Busy Person (well, not an album, but it\'s still a CD)
FUCKING TOUHOU 13 TEN DESIRES AND A HANDSHAKE FROM ZUN HIMSELFFFF (again, not an album, but a CD)
This post is getting really disorganized.
I have to say though, one of the most nerve-racking things I ever did while in Japan was walk/ride the metro to comiket with this blatantly otaku-fied shirt on. I mean, if I looked remotely foreign, like westerner or something, people\'d be like, \"oh silly western people.\" but because I\'m quite obviously Japanese with my face and all, peoplej ust gave me A) stares, B) disapproving looks, C) ignored. the entire time. Never did I feel more glad to be around other fellow anime/manga/touhou fans at comiket than after walking around in public for an hour and a half on transport.
I woke up early, as planned, and arrived at comiket at around 9AM. An hour before comiket started. ZOMFFGG TOO MANY PEOPLE (like several thousand) were already lined up and waiting. Anyway, because it was my first time, I was an IDIOT and didn\'t bring a hat, towel, or anything. Just water. So there I was, standing amongst hot, sweaty people for an hour, out in the blazing sun with 100+ temperatures, and I had a fucking water bottle to keep me cool. I didn\'t even have a goddamn fan. By the tiem I got into the comiket building, I felt like I jsut took a dip in the pool or something.
once I got in, guess where the FIRST place I headed to was?
Damn right, Touhou 13.
Unfortunately, because I am a noob and lined up only an hour early, by the time I got to the line, it was already like, half a mile long. Yes. Half a mile long. Did I mention the line was 3 people wide? Basically it worked like 3 single file lines next to each other. That\'s a lot of people before me. So anyway, I waited in that said line for about an hour and a half or so, which is actualyl pretty quick considering how many people were before me. OH DID I MENTION I GOT TO SHAKE ZUN\'S HAND!? YES. I SHOOK HIS HAND. ASFDOFIAJSDFOIJ
That was definitely coherent.
So as my turn to purchase came up, there was a chick who was open who I could have bought from, but I looked the other way and pretended not to notice. The guy behind me went ahead of me and went up to the chick and bought. The guy who had been paying ZUN as he handed out copies then left. I took my chance, dashed forward and bought my copy from ZUN himself. Holy shit, he is one sexy ass motherfucker. And I mean that in every serious way possible. Though seriously, he had a damn nice shirt and fedora.
After that, I went STRAIGHT to COOL&CREATE\'s table, unfortuantely, they were already sold out by then :<
Though I did get to talk to Beatmario and Amane for half an hour as their slaves did the selling of past albums xD (I did buy their DVD of the Shibuya AX Live Final concert for 3k yen, though.) Damn, bro. Beatmario is literally the guy who influenced me to start writing touhou arrangements, being able to talk to your hero is seriously something.
Anyways, aside from that, I bought a lot of stuff, tired, sweated gallons (and drank 4 bottles of water in 5 hours, both saturday and sunday) lots of fun, lots of porn, lotsa walking.
Good two days :)
I DONT CARE THAT I HAVEN\'T UPDATED IN LIKE 5 DAYS, I WENT TO COMIKET, GOT A COPY OF TOUHOU TEN DESIRES WHILE BEARING 100+ DEGREE HEAT, HOUR AND A HALF LONG WAIT, AND A HALF MILE LONG WAIT LINE, BUT IT WAS SO FUCKING WORTH IT
KNOW WHATS BETTE?!
Ok enough of capslockiscruisecontrolforcool
Aside from that, I bought about 10 Remilia doujins (sfw), 10 albums (ENS, YellowZebra, Monochrome Coat, Innocent Key, Yuuhei Satellite, and a few others) and a shitton of pr0n for a friend of mine. Like, every NSFW doujin was for him ._. (I did buy 1 nsfw akyuuxreimu doujin though, pretty hawt stuff inside)
Holy shit, I don\'t even know what to say, I have NEVER seen SO MANY PEOPLE in SUCH A SMALL SPACE. I lined up at 9AM, which is still an hour early, There were already like 10k people waiting. Yes, 10,000 people, an hour early.
Pics later, 0.1mbps upload connection is painful to work with.
So because I am the busiest bastard to have walked through my grandparent\'s house, I have not really had time to even sit and upload the pictures I took throughout the day, hence, a wallotext5dayupdatezomfgbbq. I\'ll be writing everything as if I\'m writing it during that day, btw. LIKE A JOURNAL OMG that was stupid and lame ._.
So let\'s go in chronological order, just cuz I\'m... idk, I was going to say something but couldn\'t think of anything. ANYWAY.
So today, not much happened. Boring. Not really. I bought moar mangos, and even bought the Nichijou OP2 CD, which I soon thereafter ripped and uploaded under [Aho-Rips]
You know, everything we do, it\'ll just be under [Aho-insertsomethinghere], lol
Anyways, so mangos, many mangos. All for exactly 5,000 yen. Just how many? Well lets see
- Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica: Volumes 1-3 (all of them)
- Welcome to the NHK: Volumes 1-4 (they didn\'t have 5 D:)
- Yumekui Merry: Volumes 1-6 (animu completely like, strayed off from the mango ._.)
Anyways, so I got like, 13 volumes of mango for exactly 5,000 yen. Not bad, I\'d say. Not to mention 9 of those volumes aren\'t exactly old. (and in perfect condition!)
So today, I went fishing. Like, from 6AM till 6PM.
My gawd, broskis (and siskis? Wait taht doesn\'t work...) I fucking love fishing. Mainly cuz I got to spend time with my cousins. Now before anyone makes a \"Hey, you lolicon!\" joke, I will make it clear that they are my COUSINS, and so, my FAMILY, and that I do not support IRL INCEST, cuz IRL incest is just like, \"bro...\"
Anyways, the oldest cousin is 9, in the 4th grade, and female. Very cute.
Second oldest, is 7, in the 2nd grade, male. Very energetic, but awesome.
Youngest, is 4. Yet to experience the wonders of school. Very cute, yet tiring.
So had to wake up at like, 5. Standard stuff for fishing. Got in the car, played some FAWKING ADVANCE WARS, DAYS OF RUIN, HURRAH BEST STRATEGY GAME ON THE DS. Anyways, I made my own map for the first hour, called it Chokehold because I specifically designed it with multiple chokehold locations in mind. It\'s pretty intense, I have two airports in the middle of the map (map\'s 30x30 btw) and theres a secluded island to the northwest surrounded by water and no beaches, so the only way to get to it is via air support. Now the thing is, that island also has 3 more airports, a comm tower, 4 buildings, 2 temp. airports, a factory, and forest covering every open space. So basically, if you can capture that island, every block in the space that a rocket can attack, is screwed. Very powerful little island I designed.
I also put some factories on each side of the map near the center airports so it\'s an all out brawl between both sides. But I also made it fun, by adding a little area in either unused corner of the map by placing silos(missle launcher thing?) as well as factories with roads leading directly to either capital. Basically, even if you posess all 5 airports, if you let the other team grab both factories, they can ship war tanks every turn straight at your capital. Not a good thing.
Overall, the entire map is basically riddled with long rivers, except I used sea blocks so you can\'t cross it, and the only way to go across is via small, exposed bridges. Though I do have ports/beaches spread out across the map to allow for some sneaking action :P pretty fun map, it took me a good hour and a half to complete a match against the AI.
Anyways, thats a shitton on my Advance Wars love, enough of that.
So before leaving home, I had made a facebook update that went along the lines of... or rather, lemme change tabs and quote it.
Ok, so I didn\'t get the ages right in my facebook update.
\"off to go fisihing with cousins. They\'re like elementary schoolers ._. (4th, 2nd, 1st grade)
oh boy, I was never good with little kids D*:\"
Anyways, so yeah, I know I misspelled fishing ._.
So anyways, after arriving at the fishing place, my cousins were already there waiting, and the only thing going through my head was like, \"ohshitohshitohshitohshitwhatdoidoimterribadwithkids\" (congratz if you could read that ._.)
At first, it was like, \"zomfg, haven\'t met these kids for 4 years, wtf do I do, do they even remember me?\"
As I left the car, it was really awkward, and I kept talking to my aunt/uncle who obviously remembered me, and the kids were like, running around and being kids so it was sort of all right...
A bit later, once we started to actually fish, it was going all well for about an hour, then having caught like, 15 fish, we decided to take a break and gut/clean the fish. Well, my mom and aunt did the gutting/cleaning. So during this time, my cousins and I decided to swim in the river. All was well, things going smoothly, finally broke the ice between my cousins and had some conversations. Suddenly, I hear this splashing sound and a panicking uncle. I look to my right side, and I see my youngest cousin being washed away by the current. Being like, 4, she didn\'t exactly know how to swim... nor would she have had the power to swim against the current, anyway. So I, being mr. big cousin dude, I dropped the fish net I had been holding and swam towards my sort-of-drowning cousin and brought her to shore.
After that, any ice remaining between my cousins and I disappeared and we were talking and stuff. So anyway, we eat lunch. Fresh grilled fish, yakisoba, beef cutlets, etc. Lotsa food, basically.
After eating, we decided that we\'d go off and explore the surroudning area while my uncle/aunt/mom/gramps continued fishing. Ended up doing some epic stuff like climbing a waterfall thing halfway and taking pics (I stil don\'t get how my camera didn\'t fry from the water...)
After all this (which is around 5 hours of exploring) we finally headed home, where I learned to play Shogi, talked more with cousins, and had a teary good-bye (not really, though cousin\'s were sad to leave)(Ok, yes, I was slightly sad too.)
I dont even know what to say. Akiba. Animate, White Canvas, Sofmap, Gamerz, like, EVERY STORE I DREAMED OF SHOPPING AT, A REALITY, MY WALLET IS 40,000 YEN EMPTIER AND IN A BETTER PLACE FUCK. YES. MISAKA. REMILIA. INDEX. HAIOSDJFSOADIJFASIODJFOISADJFOIASJDFOIASJDFOIASDJFOIASJDFOIASDFJOIASDFJOIASDFJAOSIDFJASDOFIJSDFIOJAIOHGIOWEJIOMAKLCJSKLFJAOIWEJAKOTFJXDLKCMLKZNSVOIAJWFOIJWOIEJFOIAJSDVKLJASDOIFMNOAIWNGOIADJSOIFJds
No, I TOTALLY do not have a Remilia obsession.
all other pics available via first link in the wallotext.
I honestly don\'t have much else to say other than winning that raffle was like having both Remilia and Misaka come to life and kiss me. At the same time. Like, I don\'t even know how to describe how awesome it was to learn that I wont that Index figure worth about 10,000 for only 800. So. Fucking. Awesome.
Also, one last thing about Akiba day. Yo. Like. MAIDS. MAIDS FRIGGIN EVERYWHERE. Every damn street corner, and about 20 locations between each street corner, maids. MAIDS EVERYWHERE HANDING OUT PAMPHLETS.
Oh, I went to a maid cafe. It was awkward as fucking hell.
Speaking of which, no pics cuz they were like, \"nou pics\" and I was like, \"whydidicometothiscafewhereicanttakepicswtf\" but yeah, yhaving a chick in maid outfit is nice, but having her right over you chanting some incantation shit is a bit awk. I could do with just the maid and less with the talk, know what I mean?
Anyway. That\'s about it, and tons of purchases.
So today, I went to Tokyo on some tour thing mabob. Not much to say other than IT WAS FUCKING HOT AS HELL AND I HAD TO WALK FFUUUUUUU
I fell asleep during the boat ride too. Mainly cuz it was hot as fucking hell, I was tired from walking all day, and idk, I was sleepy?
So at a gift store, they had this donation box thing, like the one Reimu had. It\'s a little mini one, and I bought it.
$5 says I\'ll get more donations than Reimu. Well, I won\'t be going hungry every night like she does :P No offense to any Reimu lovers xD
I also bought myself some omamoris, don\'t know what they\'re called in english. like, protection charms or something. Mine was for success, mainly cuz I have that audition coming up for Juilliard\'s pre-college in like, two weeks (re-audition)
So I don\'t really know what else to right. Well whatever, there\'s more than enough for you guys to read and drool over as is, anyway. I might add more later.
Day 7 scenery - Coming soon
Day 7 food - Coming soon
Day 7 purchases - Coming soon
Click the underlined lines for the images)
Ok, so day three.
know what day it was for me?
FAWKING MUSIC DAY, LETS GO!
My entire day was spent (8AM~11PM) at the Yamaha headquarters in Ginza.
Know what else was happening that day?
KEIKO ABE, LIVE, MASTER CLASS, CONCERT, ROASDFOSDJKFOSDKF
For about 99% of people who read this, you\'ll be going, \"huhwha- who?\" so allow me to explain.
Did I mention she\'s one of the world\'s most famous marimbists? Basically she\'s one of the pioneers for the marimba, having been playing since it actually became known in the early 1970s (yes, it\'s an extremely new instrument)
So basically I went to see her performance and seminar last night, pretty cool.
But that\'s not where it ends, after the seminar, I gathered up my balls and went to ask her for her signature.
Not only did she agree, she even friggin wrote a short little saying on a music book I bought that she\'d written. (Translation is \"Cherish and enjoy music, live a fulfilling life\") Like, I orgasmd from music-ness. Seriously. World famous musician, picture, signature, and even small talk. like, WHAT.
Anyways, onto more interesting stuff
Let\'s see, well between the seminar and the concert itself, i had about two hours to waste. So naturally, the first place I went to was the Yamaha music shop downstairs. There, I looked through some of the fine percussion literature available for purchase. I came across some frightening music that I couldn\'t seem to decipher for my life. I also came across some funky time signatures. Something like, 3.5 over 16. Yes, 3.5/16. Take that for funky time signatures. xD
In other news, though going backwards in time, I had some friggin dericious pasta. More specifically, something like calbonara pasta and clam-with-some-kind-of-clear-sauce pasta. Actually, that wasn\'t much more specific at all ._.
So after buying some music (I\'m jumping all over the place with time ..) I went and ate some dericious shaved ice from some world famous sweets cafe or something (at least my mom tells me so... and you know, women and their sweets ,,) Though seriously, I do know that they have a store/location in Manhattan as well. Anyways, I ate this dericious shaved ice, and the entire time I kept thinking how Uiharu would probably kill to eat it
I guess that\'s about it as far as anything interesting goes. A majority of my day was spent musicgasming.
Oh, I did end up buying a friggin huge piano book for a shitton of Final Fantasy songs. FF music ftw. (Think I\'ll write a few arrangements on the songs if I\'m bored)
W0LF-CHAN DESU DESU, NOT TRANSLATING AT THE SPEED OF LIGHT, BUT RATHER WASTING AN ENTIRE DAY MUSICGASMING CUZ HE\'S A MUSIC FREAK. WAIT AM I SUPPOSED TO BE DOING THIS IN 3RD PERSON?
I STILL CAN\'T TYPE WITH THIS GODDAMN KEYBOARD
Anyways, Day TWO! (Though it\'s day 3 for me, I\'m just updating it in the morning)
So Day 2, had some fun here and there, mainly eating sushi for both lunch and dinner :3 My grandparents just love to spoil me, not that I\'m complaining.
So if you haven\'t seen the links already, I\'ll be uploading and sorting all my photos
Anyways, so yesterday, my highlight of the day was probably my purchases of mangos. More specifically:
* The World God Only Knows volumes 12+13 (13 even came with an Elsie clock!)
Touhou Bougetsushou Silent Sinner in Blue Volumes 1 + 3 (I already had 2)
Touhou Sangetsushou Bright and Eastern Nature Deity (I now have all 3 volumes)
HELVETICA STANDARDDDDD(yes, theres a MANGA on it, and I BOUGHT IT)
TO ARU KAGAKU NO RAILGUN VOLUMES 6 OHHHH YEAHHH MISAKAAAA GO!*
ok so i went to eat breakfast and as i left, i skipped upwards, and slammed my head into the ledge above the door ._. why are these ceilings and ledges so low (then again, 5\' 10\" is pretty damn tall for a jap)
Aside from my lovely purchases, my aunt, who\'s a dog trainer, came over :D
She had a Saint Bernese Mountain Dog and a Belgian Sheperd. They are. FREAKING. HUGE. (pics are in the link)
Going for a bit to the helvetica standard, I think that Helvetica is a spin off of Nichijou, and KyoAni just decided to animate it under the same name. Though I have to say, I read the entire thing last night, it\'s got some pretty funny moments.
Another point on Helvetica, there are a LOT of scenes that are from Helvetica, but isn\'t labeled as so in the anime. Eg, the first scene in ep 1, that\'s from helvetica (I don\'t feel like doing anything!) as well as the gramps(vice principal) and his grandson bits (super fast baseball, personal seal searching)
Anyways, today I\'ll be going to the Yamaha headquarters to see Keiko Abe play live (world famous marimba player) so I\'ll probably end up buying myself new mallets as well. I\'ve been in need of brass mallets for awhile.
End rant from w0lf
W0LF-CHAN DESU DESU, NOT TRANSLATING AT THE SPEED OF LIGHT, BUT RATHER BUYING TONS OF ANIMU STUFF AND WASTING MY 100,000 yen THAT I HAVE

Okay though, seriously.
I`m like, in japland visiting family now, csb、amirite?
So, like, like, like, like, I`m like, being a cool bro and hanging out with my grandparents right now. Pretty chill. Got some dericious yaki-zakana last night (grilled fish? fried? roasted? idk) and that was like, totally tasty.
ll have tons of pics up later, but my mom hid the damn usb connector for the cam... or rather, doesnt remember where she put it. Oh, did I mention that I have no memory card reader available? ._.
So like, I slept about 9 hours of the 14 hour flight, and while I was awake I played some touhuuuuu, stepmania, Advance Wars(DS), taiko no tatsujin(DS)(FUCKYAR) the FUCKING SMEXY OREIMO PSP VN GAME THING (I Think I`ll go for the FTW incestual relation with Kirino. Dat voice. Dat ass... wait...) Oh, and I also read some light novels (Spice and Wolf)
Drive back to grandparent
s home was pretty cash, had some takoyaki, Mos Burger (think BK of Japan, except 9000x superior just cuz its jap), drive itself took about 2 hours.
Yo, like, I`d totally forgotten how fucking awesome japanese ofuro was, like how the hell have I been taking showers everyday for the past 4 years since I last came back to visit famiry, seriously. So relaxing.
Oh, did I mention my netbook doesn

In other news, I`m going to some book stores to buy mango in like, an hour. Gonna get me some mangos. Wait, that was redundant.
Oh, and I woke up at 3AM in the morning. Did I mention I went to bed at TEN FRIGGIN PM?
