Onigiri and Milk Tea for breakfast. [Aug. 2nd, 2008|10:38 am]
Team USA's blog as we get ready for WCS 2008!


I... love this country.

So I guess an update? We met the rest of the teams and everyone has been great so far. In fact, last night Rens, Anna and I went eating (holy crap, I ate shrimp brains) with the Osaka team. They are so VISUAL KEI, in fact they are in a band. Fabo.

So we went to Karaoke, belted out some Queen and the likes. Drank. More singing. Etc.

We got assigned our numbers. We are...I think either 8 or 9. So being that we are on the B team, we had to go to Centrair Airport and put on a little show for the crowd. We bonded with the Chinses team, where they told us that in China they compete in teams of like... 40! They all work very hard and do their best and the Chibese team was chosen out of like..800 people. CRAZY! They are also models (we totally called it) and SUPERNERDY! So cute *3*. Italy has GORGEOUS Trinity Blood costumes, which was a relief cause we were scared that this will be the only year ever that no one did TB. Germany cosplayed as Chobits, Singapore did Gundam Seed Destiny and Brazil did Street Fighters and Saint Seiya (raburabu).

Then after all was said and done, we went to rehersal. Holy.. fuck balls. HOT AND HUMID NAGOYA IS HOT.. AND VERY FUCKING HUMID. Poor Renee with her fabulous pants, dying. We had a great rehersal, we are probably the only FABULOUS team with our shiny ass pants.

Okay I ought to go back to the hotel and practice some more. See you all!


Also.. somehow we got stuck in a hotel that only has 2 irons for the entire place..

I can see this ending in bloodshed. We are ready to throw down for an iron.

Just heard the NPR piece here in the States. It was quite good. Impressive voice-work and the NPR interviewer was typically a little more hip to anime and manga than other mainstream media.

Damn you speak fluent Japanese too.
(need to brush up on that Portuguese though ;)

Bring home the Gold, sexy girls!

A lot of the stores near the station in Akihabara had an excellent selection of irons for decent prices, IIRC.

Also, the only actual (NYC/Tokyo)apt sized Dyson vacuums. I still dream about that tiny vacuum to this day.
