Wandering Days in Japan, Vol. 3

I’ve delayed this after report of my last Moon’s trip to Hi no Moto Land far long enough…

As years go by, my somewhat intense schedule really does hinder my leisure blogging recently.

Oh well onwards to the last part of my merry adventure~!

Day 5: Wading Through the Shallow Grass

Since I’m staying in the vicinity, I might as well pay a visit to the ever famous tourist spot in Asakusa: the Senso-ji.

Stepping through the Kaminari Mon that leads directly into the main temple itself, one can feel the intense stare casted upon oneself by the twin statues of the gate, Raijin and Fujin.

Continuing my journey to the Land of the Rising Sun, today I’m heading westward to Nakano along with my companion.

We’re to explore the titular Nakano Broadway, the treasure trove for second-hand goods and stuff, especially those of ACG origin.

Wandering Days in Japan, Vol. 1

Earlier the month, I’ve finally fulfilled one of my objective off my life-time to-do list: visiting the Land of the Rising Sun.

Yes, I’ve finally hopped onto a steel bird towards Japan, my first actual solo trip to a foreign land other than the annual pilgrimage to the City of the Fishy Lion…

As such, I had to abandon the idea of attending C3 Anime Festival Asia 2019, which will be held in the coming weekend…

Day 1: Departure

From my island, I had to take a short plane trip towards the capital of my country, where I stayed for another couple of hours before hitching onto the connecting flight towards my actual destination.

A Singularity at C3 AFA 2018

Fate/Grand Order, the phenomenal mobage available to the Android/iOS, is one of the main attraction for C3 Anime Festival Asia 2018…

The main stage event for FGO were held on day 2, featuring the Chaldea Radio Station duo Takahashi Rie and Tanaka Minami, alongside Fate series veteran Kawasumi Ayako, and last but not least, the Creative Producer, Shiokawa “Salt River” Yosuke himself.

As no photo-shooting and video-taking were allowed, there’s nothing from the stage hall I can show you here…

There was a brief talk on the game itself, but from the perspective of the US version instead of the JP version, which is a bummer to many of us.

The guests each talked on various part of the 1st arc of the story, as well as holding a live-dubbing session for each of their voiced character in-game. Kawasumi-san provided the most fan service by reciting Noble Phantasm lines of Altria Pendragon, Altria Pendragon (Alter) and Altria Pendragon (Archer).

TFW Nitoris (VA: Tanaka Minami) and Mash (VA: Takahashi Rie) were surprised most of us are Masters of the JP version instead, brought a smile to our face. Another highlight of the stage was Tanaka-san noticing various Medjed cosplayers within the stage hall. XDc
