today i went for the my girl exhibition at roponggi, which was held in celebration of the official release of the dvd box ♥ it comes with a special hand towel that i really want, but the dvd box is too expensive for me 😦

i am way too easily amused

people lining up to go in – they were controlling the crowd so it wouldn’t be too packed inside, and to make sure that everyone had the chance to take a good look at everything

there were quite a lot of families, with both parents and kids 🙂 i’m glad to see more than just arashi fangirls! it will probably be packed to the brim tomorrow since it’s a saturday…

i like the overall presentation – very simple and very sweet

view from the entrance

they had one panel for each episode, with a brief summary of what happens and 4 photos from the episode

they had a replica of the sakura tree at masamune-kun‘s school >w<

hiro went along with mummy because he is a koharu fan 😀

besides that, they also had various key items on display : the drama scripts, masamune-kun‘s camera, koharu-chan‘s lucky charm, her hair accessories, masamune-kun‘s outfits, koharu-chan‘s pajamas >w< i wish i could take photos of the items on display! and i knew aiba-chan was tall, but i’ve only realized today exactly how TALL he is when i was looking at his outfits hahah! (and big shoes too!)

masamune-kun‘s bike, with the child seat attached

other key items that was near the photo-taking spot, so i managed to get some photos >w<

koharu-chan‘s cape and the symbolic red-and-white muffler scarf!

koharu-chan‘s shoes, boots and bags

the postbox by the riverbank and koharu-chan’s string telephone!

i was hoping that they would restock the handphone straps but sadly, they only had clear files left 😦 i quite like the mug too… oh well! i bought the clear file anyway =w=;;

hiro with the huge doraemon at the tv asahi souvenir shop

the miniature tokyo tower in the lobby

upclose at the sparkly dangly stuff 😀

on the way to azabu juban station, i spotted this! i wonder how it tastes like…

a nostalgic name for me! as long as i can remember, azabu juban is where sailormoon lives :p

so cute!

even the patrol cars here are cute hahah! so tiny!

wrong kanji but at least it still reads ohmiya :p

my lunch 🙂

troublemaker photos were up at the shop today. the damage is done. i am heartbroken over the lack of my otp 😦 johnny’s, what were you thinking?!


i went to asakusa today with tsu to watch the 東京時代祭り tokyo jidai matsuri parade! i’ve had it noted down in my planner before coming to japan 🙂 it was really cold today though, i was freezing my toes off! i wish i had an overcoat or something… *makes reminder to buy one* most of the 200+ photos are up on facebook but i’ll put up my favourite shots here!

the parade started at 13:45. i left my dorm at 11:00, reached asakusa a little before 12:00, and then proceeded to grab a front spot and waited!

welcome to asakusa 🙂

random fangirl moment :p

one of the cuter police cars. i’m still looking for the mitsubishi lancers and subaru imprezas…

every foreigner’s worst nightmare : food menus on the wall with no pictures whatsoever

a very late lunch around 15:30 🙂 sanma!

i flipped my hair to the back lol otherwise i’d be eating my own hair! quite satisfied with my kitsuke today but my collar needs work. practice makes perfect!!!

on sunday, i went out with the intention of watching boku no hatsukoi wo kimi ni sasagu, but the tickets were all sold out ;_; so i went to sunshine city to take a look at the saiyuki festa

i really, really want to watch this!

cute maids promoting crepes

i took photos of some of the pages from the pamphlet!

my favourite page ♥ !!! *0* tenpo is beyond hot *blissful sigh*

i bought gaiden badges 🙂 i only want the tenpo one but it comes in a set of two, so i had no choice lol… but it looks pretty cool together though! biel biel biel

i bought a set of 4 clear files with gaiden illustrations ♥ i love gaiden!!!

they had stickers printed with orange paper planes for visitors to jot down messages for minekura-sensei… i took a few extra copies as souvenirs ♥
