I'm back from Otakon, and it was amazing.

Our Prince of Tennis gathering was a gathering of epic proportions, in that it started Saturday afternoon and lasted for the remainder of the con. XD You guys are all so awesome, I love you! I miss you already~

Other highlights include:

The Yuugiou gathering on Friday, where faded_lace and chiachiaamichan got to take pictures with a Seto!

The Johnny's panel Friday night. I'm definitely going to have to do some stalking around for music when I get the time...

The fact that our hotel room had someone's oxygen tanks left in it when we got there, wtf.

Saeki and I getting interviewed by some Japanese tv people. It was so random, and they were obsessed with us playing janken. XD I wish they had given us a card or something, though, because I have no idea how to find out where the videos might end up...

L: Change the World. A very strange movie, but kind of awesome for L's pink crepe truck and his adorable awkward interactions with small children.

An AMAZING set of Hitachiin twins we kept seeing around, who were really good at talking in unison.

...and that's all I can think of at the moment. Pictures will be up on Miranda's lj soon, as usual! I spent wayy too much money, but I did end up with some stuff I'm really happy with. Namely, Salty Dog V! I already drooled over the scans last summer, but now I own it~~ I also bought the dvd of Schoolboy Crush and a shit ton of random tenipuri stuff. Including a Higa keychain XD

There was one major downside, though. On Friday afternoon I realized that I couldn't find my driver's license, and it never turned up at the lost and found. T__T My parents took the news fairly well, I think... They were pretty annoyed, and briefly worried that someone would use it to steal my identity, but eventually they just shrugged and said I would have to go get a replacement. So that'll be a pain in the ass, but...oh well. I'm not letting it ruin the awesomeness of the weekend.

The Prince of Tennis meet-up was ~*amazing*~ =D

And hey, you were at the Johnny's panel? =O I was there, too~ It was a lot of fun. Because I only really listen to two or three groups from Johnny's, I found a bunch of others that I should give it a listen to~

And that sucks about your driver's license D: I hope everything works out!

Yes it was~ :DD

Haha, actually, the whole time we were like, "Hm, I wonder if Saeki's here..." but of course we had no idea who you were at the time. XD;; I didn't really know much at all about Johnny's before, but I definitely have to check out some of the groups now. Which ones are your favorites?

サラ: NEWS - hey girl!onewhomust on July 20th, 2009 10:52 pm (UTC)
My favorite is NEWS :3 I also have a thing for KAT-TUN, and there are a few Arashi songs that I really like ^^ If you want any recs, let me know, because I love to share my love of those boys XD;

Yeah, I'm definitely open to recs! Where do you usually get their music? I know of a couple general j-pop communities that I've gotten stuff from before, but I haven't looked specifically for Johnny's stuff yet.

Here are two of my favorite NEWS songs - 'weeeek' and 'hoshi wo mezashite'. For an album rec, all of them are amazing, but I think 'pacific' is their best ^^ And for KAT-TUN, my favorite song by them is 'lips' ^^ Their best album is Queen of Pirates, in my opinion~ And! My favorite Arashi song is 'sakura sake' but I don't have any of their albums, so I don't know which to recommend ^^

jpop_uploads is pretty good for just about anything, but most of the time you can find a lot of stuff via the groups' main comms. And KAT-TUN have a community that is just for downloads (jone_records) that I think has a full discography post floating around. NEWS' full discography (including PVs) can also be found here. ^^
