Japan Vacation

Oh man, it’s already been a month since my last post.  I was hoping it wouldn’t be such a huge gap, but I guess that’s how it ended up anyway.  July was a really busy month for me and the biggest reason for this was my 2-week long trip to Japan with a fast-paced tour that went all sorts of places.  It was quite an unusual experience and in many ways very different from America so it was strange to get used to, though it was certainly worth it.  In any case, my Japan vacation was pretty long and there’s far too much for me to make any sort of detailed account of each day so I’m going to stick with some pictures and me giving some of my thoughts on it all.  I’d like to say in advance that I’m a very, very lazy picture taker so there really aren’t as many pictures as there could be and my lack of enthusiasm to take pictures by the end of the trip means no Akihabara pictures, sadly…..in retrospect it would’ve been a good idea to have at least a few, but most of those electronic stores look identical and a vast majority of shops with figurines and the like (honestly, a lot more stores than just those throughout Japan) won’t let you take pictures either so I couldn’t have gotten too many great pics anyway.

Fate/stay night TV Reproduction Review: Fate/stay night in a Nutshell

Image

Happened to have some free time today (and no laptop when I needed it) so I decided to take the chance to watch Fate/stay night TV Reproduction, which is basically a 2-episode recap OVA of the Fate/stay night anime with an hour for each episode.  It was certainly enjoyable, but cramming 24 episodes’ worth of content into 2 hours of runtime means missing a lot.
