Will check these out! Also of possible interest is Sci-Fi City (on Colonial Drive at the very eastern-most tip of Orlando) and if you visit EPCOT, try the department store in the Japanese Pavilion - it varies, but it often stocks a few kits and toys. I once saw some Lupin 3 figures there and they often stock Gundam kits.

I heard a demo of the song. She’s really going back to her pop days with this one. I’m super excited XD She’ll make it awesome, I just know it!

Man, whichever album these singles will be on will be AWESOME. That’ll be a must-buy. I hope “L” will be epic.

You have to be careful when posing.The plastic pedestal to hold her is actually quite high, she floats about 1.5 cm above the ground. Probably because of the long hair.

Hello! I found your blog while looking for information abou Ayumi’s Countdown concert. In another post you said that you bought your tickets from reseller shops in Shinjuku, Harajuku, Shibuya and in Ueno but I was just wondering the names of the stores? I’ll be in Tokyo on the 30th and 31st and was thinking of trying to get tickets to Ayumi’s concert for the 31st, if I can for not that expensive (which would be anything under $150US if I’m lucky??….)

I also see that you’re planning on going to Comiket, which is something that I’m planning on doing as well, though I’m pretty sure I’m going to be eaten alive. My plan is to go and ‘check it out’ but from what I’ve been reading online, it’s a pretty crazy adventure that you need lots of planning before you go. Ahhh, this will be my first time, I’m not expecting to buy anything and I’m just going to get a feel for it before I give it a try again next year!

Thats the way like pop culture can influence reality. Killers would do such ‘joke’ as red herring.

The anime is great - maybe this will let other people make to watch it. See it as free advertise for this great story.
