The last time I wrote Desk Diary was in April - I think there is one missing since then but I cant find it ^^; These photos taken before I left for a trip around the world - first stop being France.

Since I got back from Los Angeles, I've been dealing with 3 weeks of work that piled up. Most of my time of late is taken up by Konami, Kadokawa and Culture Japan Season 2 production. Have just finished writing the scenario which has a nice balance of Japan and Pop Culture. Last time round I directed the show but this time round I'm directing, producing and will be doing more editing and filming too.

Shortly before leaving for France, it was time to gas the house again with some Earth Red. The common way to get rid of bugs in Japan is by using these canisters. You pour in some water and then run before the smoke gets you! You can see these in action below - different brand though.

The smoke from the canisters are designed to attack the nervous systems of bugs and should not be harmful to anything else around the house - but leaving my girls out with the smoke was something I just could not do! Here they are surrounded by a SSNS (Sonic Sheet Nebulus Shield) which looks like a plastic bag.

Finishing up work before leaving the house for a few hours - the house should be sealed with all windows closed and ideally you should be away for at least 3 hours. Plants are kept outside during the wipeout process.

Extra layer of protection for the girls ^^;

5961304808_2e91b5515f_o

3rd floor wipeout initiated - evacuate to the second floor!

5961304974_3c3ebf3417_o

2nd floor wipeout initiated - evac to 1st floor!

5960746835_ff3898bc92_o

1st floor wipeout initiated - ruuuuun!
For folks who are wondering what would happen if you stayed to watch - while the smoke is designed not to harm objects around the house other than bugs - staying to watch is generally a bad idea. Some folks however decided to give it a try...

5960747089_a52b71b1e2_o

Wifey and I go to Lalaport in Toyosu for dindins and come back after a few hours. Word of advice - don't get curious like I did and sniff the canister - or you will be choking for the rest of the evening ^^;;;;;

5961305512_908ef19e49_o

The wipeout process generally exterminates all insects around the house like this little fella. Cockroaches are my weak point - to me they are much more scarier than Predators or Aliens or Face Huggers.

5960747393_1f6e7cbbfb_o

Back from a meeting with Konami - they serve their own water during meetings.

5961305822_e802bc773a_o

iPad 2 get.

5960747715_c53b275da2_o

Picked up this Power Tube thingy to give my iPhone and PSP extra juice in case I ran out during outings abroad.

5960747889_1529486bcb_o

Charges via USB.

5961306406_1ee6cd536e_o

Lots of adapters to plug into holes in your body here and there.

iPhone charging in action.

5960748393_0d59b1fe50_o

Office always gets a wee bit messy before a trip abroad.

5960748817_42bb324e27_o

I got a few figma Mirai Suenaga's and some of them have very loose faces! I heard some of you have the same problem but you can do what I do and just plop on some blu-tac or putty.
The only good thing about this is that it reminds me how much I like Face Off.

Whenever I have meetings with King Records, stuff appears on my desk for some reason. Here we have the Bluray for Katteni Kaizo and Denpa Onna.

5961307724_cd089442a4_o

Gorgeous packaging. I've seen some packaging of officially licensed titles outside of Japan and they just seem to consist of a case, and disc. How important is DVD/Bluray packaging to you?

Anime stamps are always cool - I love Chibi Maruko.

5960751673_e3459e66ba_o

July is the month where we are supposed to transition fully to a digital broadcast signal - but am guessing that they will extend it a bit. Is your neck of the woods broadcasting digitally?

Will be making a selection of goods from the Moekana series. Got back some T-Shirt samples which still need work on.

5960752375_fd7850caba_o

This is my fave - Akumakko.

5961310964_2164515b14_o

I love this one too! - the halo came out all odd because there was a glow on it - will remove it for the final run.

5961311362_b456e2c78a_o

An up n coming Moekana - To (と) for Tokyo Tower - Mirai-chan in bus tour guide gear.

5961311530_97ce07d77c_o

That hole in the ceiling is at it again - our new members of staff will be required to take some of these on a regular basis before I trip up over them ^^;

What would you like to tickle your fancy with?

The girls cupboard is full!

When I forget to fix the white balance on the camera, photos come out yellow like this.

5960755425_6626090655_o
5960755597_24bc3f4b7e_o

Got just a couple O figma Mirai for marketing purposes ^^; Will be giving most of these away soon.

5960755767_2f7e285e84_o

Picked up Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker for the PSP which I was supposed to play on the plane but only managed to fit in about 45 mins ^^; I've gotten lousy over the years - probably because I'd rather go in shooting than sneaking around ^^;


What is your Metal Gear tactic?

Packing stuff for Yuki-chan.

5961315004_37d2dd06e2_o

A gander at some of the Sonicomi stuff. As you know, Mirai-chan is in the game but I only recently found out at the Good Smile X Nitroplus panel that I'm in the game too! ^^;

5961315154_044c3f4346_o

A load of Sonico stuff that the Nitroplus boss Kosaka-san sent over.

5960756891_64b1131f98_o

And the rest of the post are photos from this issue of Gemaga which features Sonico-chan on the cover.

The girls in Meruru are so cute! ><

5960757959_07c95098d0_o

I last about 5 seconds on the first round of Diva.

5961316576_44a98b4ed3_o

Looks like the reason to get the Nintendo 3DS - Senran Kaguya (閃乱カグラ) - another word for "Oppai Action"
