It looks like so much fun! I wish I can go there, but for now, I'll just wait for the photographs from the expo. Good luck, everyone!

Nice article! Coffee is getting more and more popular in Japan. If you're still looking for a place to get good coffee beans, check out this coffee map map.abccoffee.co. It ranks good coffee shops in Japan according to Instagram. You can find one near you.
Gambate kudasai Danny san ^^ :)
@lipstickandfangs oh ic.. Ty~~
Are the worst pains over now?

@danielkit98 No, Anime Expo is held in Los Angeles, California. :)
Hope to visit the booth in the next few days!!
@angry_birds89 yas what
Take care Danny! I brought dr scholls but even they are wearing out as i walk around AX
Hey Danny! Sorry to hear you are living with the exact same thing I am. I caught mine early thanks to my US doctor. Three doctors in Japan misdiagnosed it! Sitting a lot and having to bend over all the time in Japan caused mine. Riding a bike and doing exercise has helped tremendously and the pain went from daily to once a month.
Also, there is a surgery for it, my mother has had two slipped discs and both had to have surgery to fix them. My middle brother found out he has a degenerative spine. The doctors said in less than a year he probably would not be able to walk again. It's been 5 years and he now runs marathons. The running has strengthened his back so much that it has severely slowed the disintegration of his spine.
If you don't want to bike outside there are devices that let you turn your bike into an exercise bike and you can use it in your house. I hope you find something that really helps and keeps the pain away.
Hope you feel better Danny. Mirai is a great Gal.
Hey I don't mean to spam but I'm looking for help stopping bullying as it affects so many people. Would you help me? @danielkit98 @sya_hsz @eddiex90 @imzenick @thesmilingotaku @sushipirate @shironeko____

Take care Danny. Body is the foundation of everything and food is a source of energy.
Oh.. This is in Japan? Nvm then~ @eddiex90
I think you might need XXL and XXXL for 米國人。
no 2XL eh? You are in America you know. (chuckles) and yes I'm a 2XL
hope it stays that way (without wheelchair)
I doubt Otaku Culture is Japanese culture but ok.
21-year-old Japanese studies student from the UK.
Three months before a student can shoot? That's pretty tough. I do Western archery and I was shooting arrows from my first session, but I guess it's a different discipline and my archery club is very laid-back anyway.
I'd like to try kyudo someday, just to have a go at a different type of archery.
I've been interested in languages since about the age of 8, and particularly East Asian languages. I've also been drawing from a young age because I come from an artistically-inclined family. Somewhere around 13 or 14 these two things converged when I discovered translated comics from Japan and Korea in my local book store, and I started to casually study Japanese language and culture in my spare time, eventually taking evening classes at my local adult education centre.
I didn't get really serious about it until applying for university, when I realised that there were actually degree courses in Japanese Studies, and it didn't take much thinking before I had made up my mind to apply for Japanese (much to the initial dismay of my parents who wanted me to take something like computer science or graphic design). Now I'm just finishing up my year abroad in Japan, with plans to return after graduating next summer.
They'll be available on GSC's web shop from tomorrow so they'll be purchaseable with a proxy service, but they probably aren't going to see a standard release.
There were quite a few figures of Senjougahara on show, but this one was definitely the best. The cascading stationery and that facial expression really make it stand out from the ones by other companies.
I'll be there tomorrow. It's my first trip to the event, so I'm quite excited.
I'm in university dorms and get my internet for free (or included in the very cheap rent, to look at things from another perspective).The downside to that is I have to share it with a lot of other people. In the mornings my internet speed is great, but in the evenings it's not so good.
Testing at 10pm: DL: 11.70 Mb/s and UL: 16.26 Mb/s
Tested a couple of months ago at about 9am: DL: 93.21 Mb/s and UL: 34.84 Mb/s
Quite a big difference!
I flew with JAL to Japan back in August, and I'll be flying back to the UK with them in July hopefully, so I've been keeping an eye on the news about them. They're the only direct service to the UK that I can get at student prices, so I'm hoping that everything will still be operating as normal when I'm due to go back home again.
The only people I saw wearing them in the UK were exchange students from Asia at my university.
I wore one for a day or two when I had a cold here in Japan. I can't imagine that it did a lot of good, but since everyone else here does it I'd feel awkward going around without one when I'm obviously ill (and I can't stay home unless I absolutely have to because my attendance affects my grades, and if I miss more than three classes in one subject per trimester I fail automatically).
It is rather linear, but I don't think it's necessarily a bad game as a result. JRPGs are usually pretty linear, and I've found XIII a lot of fun so far anyway.
The shoulders look a bit off and the joints are a little too visible, but I don't think it's bad for a first try. If they brought out a character I was interested in I'd probably buy one.
I haven't even got around to watching the anime, but this figure of her is so cute that I kind of want it anyway. If she wasn't an exclusive I'd probably have gotten her.
They look really useful - I hope they eventually go on regular sale. I always get paranoid carrying Nendoroids around because it would be too easy to damage one.
I have the Puchi set, so I might give the postcard thing a try.
I had a school girl falling asleep on my shoulder a few weeks ago. I ended up sat amongst a big group of school kids for lack of somewhere else to sit and they were all falling asleep on one another. The girl's head kept slowly edging towards my shoulder, and I didn't want to wake her because it would probably have been embarrassing for both of us. Luckily the school kids all got off before my stop, so I didn't have to extract my shoulder out from under her head or anything.
She's gorgeous and I really like her face regardless of whether or not it has cute appeal, but she's too expensive for me to actually get her.
That's DD Yoko! She's gorgeous, but rather difficult and expensive to get hold of now.
I read DC because it neatly covers a whole group of my interests in one site - anime and manga, Apple, figures, Japan and dolls. I really like the community aspect to the site, which separates it from other blogs. I appreciated the addition of the new Tokyo Livebloggers feature, which as a foreign resident in Japan I can often relate to. My favourite posts are the photo articles, because I enjoy photos of beautiful and interesting places and because it gives me inspiration on interesting places to visit while I'm in Japan.
One of the smaller aspects of the site I appreciate is the fact that you don't allow negative comments when posting about idols and other celebrities. While I love to discuss things, it's refreshing to be able to read through the comments on an article like that and not have to wade through hundreds of crude, misogynistic remarks as can be found on most of the rest of the internet. I feel that it helps foster a friendlier community.
As for things I'd like to see more of, obviously I'm interested in seeing more of the parts I particularly enjoy, like the photo articles. I wouldn't mind seeing more Apple-related articles as well. I'd also be interested in seeing articles about aspects of Japan that don't normally get covered, for example the disabled facilities article you mentioned working on. Personally I have a particular interest in minority groups, so it would be interesting to see articles on that sort of thing. I always find it interesting to read about the side of Japan that isn't either weird gimmicks or mainstream stuff.
I'd also like to see more content that encourages discussion rather than lots of individual comments, although I appreciate that this one can be risky given the internet tendency to stir up drama.
I'd definitely get one at $100, but then I've just spent an awful lot more than that on a Super Dollfie so even the current prices don't deter me.
I don't think they want to stop their customers having a good time, they just don't want the women working there to be treated disrespectfully or prevented from doing their job properly. I honestly wouldn't call any of the forbidden behaviours friendly - just harassment, and you can't blame the maids for not wanting complete strangers hitting on them all day. The sad thing is that there are enough people out there making common sense like not asking for her contact details necessary as rules.
Yeah, there are people around who won't follow the rules no matter what, but there are also people with the courtesy to keep to them, so posting the rules will at least keep the amount of trouble lower than it would be otherwise. Plus it's harder to keep things orderly if you don't set some ground rules first.
I live in dorms, which I guess is kind of half way between the two. I have my own room that I can do what I want with and I can keep whatever hours I want, but I have to share facilities like the kitchen, toilets and shower with other people. I hate the sharing part - none of the people on my floor seem to have much sense of proper hygiene, they all gave their door codes to their friends so we get people from outside the building coming and spending ages in the shower, and one of the people on my floor always has loads of friends over and makes a lot of noise, uses the kitchen for hours on end etc.
However I did share a house with friends last year and hated that even more than dorms, so for me the ideal right now would be completely alone or with considerate strangers.
I was going to be in Akihabara today (and had planned to make a trip to the Volks store there) and would have been able to go to the signing, except one of my lecturers went and rescheduled one of my classes to a Saturday.
I prefer number 2. DC has a lot of content to fit onto the regular users' page, but the second layout managed to fit everything together in a way that was easy to understand. I especially liked the side-box for the live bloggers.
+1 on Hetalia Nendoroids! They'd be adorable, and a good choice since they have a large fanbase.
+1 on Sakura - a Figma in particular would be great
