I just got back from the Hello!Chanpuru concert at Nakano Sun Plaza with Celestia. It was… way beyond amazing. When the girls first came out, I almost cried because it was… (definitely hard to describe)… something I’ve only dreamed of seeing, never thought I would, and… I dunno… it was like, “Wow. These girls are actually real. Not just some people on my computer screen. They exist!”
Anyway. Maimai was absent from the concert tonight, which is a real shame because after Erika she’s my favorite girl in C-ute and I was really, really looking forward to her in Pucchimoni V. But that’s okay. Didn’t ruin my day.

I arrived last night in Tokyo. Now I’m staying at the house of a family friend in Yokosuka. Today was day one, and to kick things off we went shopping at a mall really close by in Yokosuka.
I don’t plan on documenting any parts of my trip here that don’t pertain to Asian entertainment, so today I’m going to share my Jpop purchases I bought. We caught the music store on our way out of the mall and I must have been in there over an hour. I can’t read kanji to save my life, so I kept asking the associate where everything was. I felt so bad for him, bless his soul.
Anyway, I spent about $130 on CDs and I could hardly carry them to the register. Here’s what I got:
From the top left: ARASHI – Ashita wa Koiku/Crazy Moon, High-King – C\C, Goto Maki – Garasu no Pumps, Morning Musume – Ai Araba ~It’s All Right~, Perfume – ONE ROOM DISCO (was supposed to be Dream Fighter, but she gave me the wrong one. Oh well.), KAT-TUN – Break the Records, NEWS – color, Berryz Koubou – Seishun Bus Guide/Rival, Morning Musume – Shouganai Yume Oibito
It’s exciting. I almost don’t want to open them. Haha.
In other news, I will be going to the Hello!Chanpuru concert August 7th, and I plan on reporting on that in full detail; so please look forward to that!
