So here's the second part of my Rurouni Kenshin experience :)
Munetaka Aoki-san really got me smitten because he's so adorable
So the night after the red carpet event, I've decided to make this,
Hoping that I can get him (and the others) sign it XD
It's my first attempt to make an uchiwa
I didn't even made one for Yasu before because I knew that it'll be useless since we were on the second floor of Kyocera Dome
This uchiwa turned out to be a very lucky one ♥
The other shopping mall who sponsored the events is Glorietta Ayala Mall
Their's is the press conference
If SM Megamall gave out free red carpet passes, Glorietta didn't
You have to buy at least 500php worth of products from them on the day of the event (August 7), and also buy a Rurouni Kenshin Kyoto Inferno movie ticket in advance XD
Since the slots are limited to only 300 people, I knew that I didn't stand a chance
Thankfully, my friend Kidd won the Ultimate Rurouni Kenshin Fan contest
She got 5 VIP passes and 5 signed posters which will be given by the cast themselves!
Luckily, she gave me one of the passes ♥♥♥
I never expected to even have a chair on the said event
The 300 people who managed to get press con passes were in the mosh pit!
I was expecting that we'd be there, too!
But to our surprise, we were even given super front seats, right beside the press and other VIPs!
The stage was right in front of us, no cockblocking Japanese press dude like yesterday!
Takei Emi was not there anymore because she had to go to back to Japan earlier than the rest
So we only had Director Keishi Otomo, Sato Takeru, and Munetaka Aoki-sama hihihi
Imagine my happiness when Aoki-san seated right in front of me,
and when he noticed my uchiwa!
He gave me 2 thumbs up, and smiled and waived at me many times while pointing at my uchiwa!
I was soooooooooo happy!
It's literally like "SENPAI NOTICED ME"
Yes, that's the perfect way to describe it!
And that's not even the highlight of the day!
After they answered questions from the press and some picture taking, it's finally our turn!
The Ultimate Rurouni Kenshin Fan (along with her 4 lucky friends) were asked to go on stage to receive the signed posters!
Before that, we were told that we're not allowed to do anything (shake their hands, etc) unless they initiated it
We were also told not to bring anything on stage so I wasn't able to have my uchiwa signed :(
But when we went on stage (I was the first to go, even though I'm not really the winner LOL), Takeru was the first to welcome us!
He gave me the poster, then shook my hand (he is SO HANDSOME up close)
Then something unexpected happened...
When it was Aoki-san's turn to greet me, he grabbed me for a big hug!!!credits to Rappler.com for the picHere's the video of what happened!
Please pardon the noise and to my Filipino friends, please don't mind the cursing...my friend who's taking the video is just too happy for me XDDAnd a shorter (and more flaily, more embarassing) video LOL
You can read the entire article here
They even called me the Luckiest. Fan. EVER.
So yes, Munetaka Aoki successfully ruined my life that day
I am now in the middle of downloading everything that has him in it (drama, movie...etc!!)
Once I renewed my paid LJ account, I am sooo making an Aoki icon XDDD
Rurouni Kenshin Kyoto Inferno premieres here in the Philippines on August 20, while The Legend Ends premieres on September 24
