Even more pictures!

I couldn't think of much to post about today (I've got things on my mind, but none of them are coherent enough to post about), so, since we figured out what was up with our account and uploading pictures at Photo Bucket, we figured now would be a good time to post more pictures!


We're not quite out of Disneysea yet. First we have a couple of things from further attempts at photographing Triton's Kingdom. You can actually make out what this one is! (After some tampering)
Photobucket

This one, not so much. I think it's either something from Ariel's grotto or the cool mirror thingie they had where Ursula shows up and tries to get you to tell her where Ariel is.
Photobucket


Now we're out of Disneysea. This next set of pictures is from our day at Akihabara with Clay. Unfortunately, I am exceedingly lame and never thought, "Hey, we should get a picture of the three of us!"

But anyway, here are some pictures from the Tokyo Anime Center:
Photobucket


They had a lot of Gegege no Kitaro stuff, since the movie was coming out.

You can't have an animation museum of any kind without one of these. I'm not sure if you can make it out, but it's those things where you put the strip of paper with all the drawings in, and spin it around and look through the slots or at the mirrors in the center, and the drawings look like they're moving.
Photobucket


More Gegege no Kitaro stuff. These are figurines of the various youkai.
Photobucket

Posters! Points to anyone who recognizes the anime!
Photobucket


I don't think any anime fan alive wouldn't recognize these guys:
Photobucket


This girl, not so much. She's Nadja from Ashita no Nadja, a cute series about a girl... in England...? Somewhere in Europe anyway. It was directed by Takuya Igarashi, who also directed Ouran High School Host Club!
Photobucket


Anime fan or not, just about anybody would recognize this little guy:
Photobucket


I don't care what anybody says, giant robots are cool. That doesn't mean we can identify this one accurately, though. We think it's a generic mobile suit from Gundam.
Photobucket


And Fate/stay night chick:
Photobucket


And some character we don't recognize:
Photobucket
But hey! We got most of them! We just wanted pictures of everything.


The streets of Akihabara:
Photobucket


And the streets of Akihabara from the staircase at Mandarake (or was it Animate? I think it was Mandarake):
Photobucket


This one has Clay in it from behind! I don't have his permission to post it, but his face isn't in it, so maybe it's okay?
Photobucket


Yatterman was a new series that I guess had just started up. Maybe I mentioned it in the report? How we saw some of an episode where they kidnapped the Japanese equivalent of Regis Philbin, and then Speed Racer came to save him? Anyway, we think that's my face in there.
Photobucket


We didn't take any pictures at church, so the next picture we got was our attempt to get photographic evidence of Inudiana Jones on the hotel TV after we got home, since we couldn't tape record it. You can sort of make out a woman kneeling down to look at her dog.
Photobucket


And the next day we went to Ikebukuro:
Photobucket

Photobucket
Apparently we were tired of taking pictures by then. Also, we weren't quite sure whether or not we'd get in trouble trying to take pictures in the department store, since I think I saw signs saying not to. We decided not to find out the hard way if we couldn't.


But we did want to get some pictures of our hotel room before we left:

Here's the view from our hotel window:

And some attempts to get the nightscape:

I thought it was funny how low all the chairs are in Japan, so I took a picture of Athena sitting in one in the hotel lobby (waiting for the limousine bus back to the airport):
Photobucket


On the way back to the airport, we enjoyed the best weather we had during the entire trip:
Photobucket

Photobucket


This was set up in the airport:
Photobucket


And this is the scenic highway where we got stranded on the way back to Fresno from LAX, while former home teacher fixed his tire. Again, I am lame and didn't think for a second to take a picture of the car with its right front side removed.
Photobucket

Photobucket


And thus concludes our photographic journey to and from Japan. Our next picture post, we'll be posting photos from Anime Expo! Whee!

Today I'm thankful for Ace Attorney parodies in Haruhi Suzumiya anime (part two of Remote Island Syndrome, for those who want to see it), cover copies that don't kill our brains, having had time to look for more Haro references last night before turning in our column, things to post about when I can't think what to post about, and the kitties sharing the house in their cat tree.
