Team USA's blog as we get ready for WCS 2008!
So no videos yet until I can figure out how to convert .mpgs to something that iMovie will read. Lamesauce.
Regardless.. we went to Akiba yesterday and just about had the worst amount of GEEKING OUT! Renee bought some badass Bucciarati figurine, I got some Gurren SMUT and Yoko's character book and a Yoko mug and some gashapon crap of Lagann and Yoko cellphone cleaner. I was thisclose to buying the Rovoltech GL but opted against it since I don't have *that* much money to spend even though it was only like.. 20 bucks.
I also trying out catching UFOs, namely this Chopper one to bring back for my friend Nick, but I learned that I suck at it. Lots of western folks were around Akiba..lots.
ALSO! We checked out some cosplay stores, holy shit they have resin gems for sale. Rens and I facepalmed several times and costumes range from 100-400 bucks generally, and they are all really nice quality. If I had money, I would've bought myself a school uniform or some crap.
AND! ANDDDD WE ATE SOME JAPANESE FUCKING STEAK THAT COST WAYYYYYYYYY TOO MUCH MONEY BUT WAS HOLYSHIT THE BEST STEAK WE EVER ATE...EVERRRR.
So here's an image dump.
My mango mojito was not that good, so Renee drank that bad boy for me.
