As of right now, I've launched into the summer semester of library school - yay! Well, kind of. I'm already feeling extremely overwhelmed because I'm taking a management class and I'm not good at management. This is why I'm a library assistant - less responsibility that way. But *sigh* I really should get used to the fact that I'll eventually be in some sort of management position. Aside from school, I'm writing more! That is a definite YAY! I've got so many new soundtracks I'm using as inspiration, so many books (and reviews!) to share that have helped drive my creativity and more importantly, I'm also drawing a lot more, which helps me when writing descriptions.
I will be posting (hopefully sooner rather than later), a couple of reviews on plays/DVD performances I've watched recently, my hopes for the AKB election, book reviews, manga reviews, and some television shows that I've been hooked on as of late. There is tons to share and I can't wait to start posting. But first, I wanted to share a bit of my trip to Japan.
While I was in Tokyo, I stopped by Akihabara and stopped by two of the places I have wanted to visit for a long time since becoming an idol fan: the Hello! Project Official Shop and the AKB48 Cafe & Shop as well as their theater. The Hello!Project Shop was located inside a multi-floor building about - I want to say a 15 minute walk from Akihabara station. The elevators open right into the shop which is smaller than I imagined but not too small. Off to the right was a place where you could leave birthday messages for certain members of the agency and beside it was a large glass case that showcased the C-ute concert outfits and a second case showing Juice=Juice's Black Butterfly outfits. Beyond that, was a large screen and a small seating area where fans could sit and watch DVD performances of the various groups of HelloPro. To the left, there was one more case displaying outfits worn by ANGERME and beyond these, was the actual shop itself.
