We've been through so much together, boys!
Though you don't know us fans personally, you make us feel that you do
I can't express in words how much you guys mean to me
Words are not enough to say how much I'm thankful that there's a band named KANJANI8

Day 3

Happy 30th Birthday, Shota ♥
I'm never the type who changes bias often, and I'm proud to say that he's been my ichiban for the longest time in my fangirl life
He have already beaten Toshiya a long time ago!
He haven't beaten Kurama yet, but hey, he's an anime XD

Silliness aside, I'm so happy that on his 30th birthday, I can already say the words "see you again"
The happiest moments of my life so far were those 3 days in Osaka that I was with him
On the first day, he even smiled at me directly despite the distance, and shot me his signed shirt although I wasn't able to catch it
That was our closest encounter so far
Hopefully, something better will come in the near future ;)

Happy birthday Shota!
Thanks for being alive
Thanks for being our inspiration
Thanks for being who you are
You will always be my #1 ♥

yoko is happy
Day 09 - Tokyo: Tsukiji, Tokyo Tower, Roppongi, TV Asahi (January 24, 2014)

nyel_06 have so many things planned that we never had a single day to slack off in Japan
We woke up so early in the morning because she wanted to go to Tsukiji
Honestly, I don't even have any idea what the fuck is a tsukiji
She's been telling me about it the entire time but I just keep on forgetting XDD

So at around 8am we're already searching for the tsukiji place that she's talking about
Apparently, it's like a flea market of some sort with all kinds of sea food

TsukijiCollapse )

TV Asahi and Roppongi HillsCollapse )
Since there's nothing much to see in TV Asahi, we decided to go to Tokyo Tower, since it's also nearby

I feel like I'm a CLAMP character!

Here's what you'd see on top of it!

My camera did not do the view some justice!
We could see Odaiba from it!
We waited for the sun to set and the view is so spectacular!

1620932_10151986580509582_1004820179_n

Then after that, I went to meet with nikouru and we went to karaoke!
Karaoke in Japan is so expensive omg
We took purikura but the pictures didn't get sent to her email
I'll try to scan them someday!

Here's a picture of me that she took beside the Tiger and Bunny standees!
The movie is about to premiere in a few days that time
Too bad I wasn't able to watch it!
The movie was heavily promoted it's amazing!

Then after my meeting with Nicole, I met with Nyel again and we went back to our hotel
It was another long and fruitful day in Japan!

eito renja
It's already September and yet, it's still hot here >_<
They said in the news that the nights are going to be longer soon, but all I ever want is a drop in the temperature XD

How's everyone?

I'll continue my Japan trip post tomorrow, for I am a bit tired now
I think I forgot to mention here that my cat Aoife gave birth to 3 healthy kittens last June 28, 2014!
They're not even 3 months old yet but they're already super big and fat and have I mentioned fat? XD

Here's Aoife nursing them around a month ago

2nd-Sep-2014 03:13 pm - Day 08 - Tokyo: Odaiba!!
subaru bang!
Day 08 - Tokyo: Odaiba (January 23, 2014)

Before we left Osaka for Tokyo the night of January 22, 2014, I saw Mr. Muchu

Then when we arrived in Tokyo the morning of January 23, this is what welcomed us!

Odaiba AdventureCollapse )
It was a very productive day for something unplanned!
We had so much fun!


As for real life at the moment, I am currently watching Supernatural
It's unusual since I don't like horror lol
I skipped to Season 4 because..
MISHA COLLINS!!
Yes, I am a fan now
All because the Asgardian kinda looks like him XDD
I am totally smitten!

I just passed training at work and next week, production starts!
I promise to post more from now on!
I will do my best!
Ganbaretsugo!
1st-Sep-2014 12:08 pm - Day 07 - Kyoto Part 2
sexy yasu
It's already September!
That's so fast!

Since I have a little bit of time in my hands, I guess I'd finally write more about my Japan trip last January LOL

Day 07 - Kyoto Part 2 (January 22, 2014)

We went to Kyoto and spent majority of the day wearing a kimono while strolling along Yasaka Shrine

1797566_10151920933658946_2135701259_n

I feel like I'm a character in Rurouni Kenshin!

222

There, we met nyel_06's Japanese friend Mina, who's the one who helped us find the kimono rental shop

111

I think it's the most Japanese among all my 14days of stay there
We can't help but take a lot of pictures!

It's a cold day but the sun is up
It also snowed a little which made me really happy!
How I wish it snowed a lot though
But a little snow is already ok for me
Maybe next time!

1507911_10151920950193946_720691398_n

And here's my best shot that day

1656393_10151920966253946_550296589_n

We have to return the kimonos at 5pm and shortly after, we left Kyoto and went back to Osaka
Then at 10pm, we took the Willer Xpress night bus to Tokyo!
26th-Aug-2014 04:35 pm - To Infinity and beyond!
OHYAS SMEX
Hello guys!
I really miss being around here and talking to friends
It seems that most have already abandoned good old Livejournal XD

Belated 10th Kansai Debut Anniversary, Eito!
It's already been 10 years since you idiots debuted on top of Teichiku building with nothing but cheap ass happi coats with no linings, and cheap flags with your names :p
And then now, look at you all!
You have grown so much, you decided to create a new independent recording label of your own and leave Teichiku XDDD

To those who didn't know yet, yes!
Kanjani8 already left Teichiku :(
But before any of you gets sad, here's what happened;
They already have their own independent recording label called PINFINITY RECORDS, under J-Storm!



Change is the only constant thing in this world indeed
Of course, Eighters are feeling ambivalent (at least most)
Sad that Eito will leave the awesome company that is Teichiku, but happy because Eito will be the one who will produce everything now!
I think that's how it's going to be
I've read a lot of news on Twitter and it seems that it's Eito's own decision to leave Teichiku because they want to manage everything on their own so they could also develop their skills in the production department
While the worry is there, I trust that Eito won't let us down!

I have a couple of J-Storm releases since I'm also a fan of JUMP,
And I admit that the materials suck and there aren't enough awesome in the LEs unlike with Eito's releases under Teichiku
But I think Eito won't let that happen
After all, it's them who knows what we Eighters want the most
I trust CEO Yokoyama with all my heart (and bank accounts) ;)

Jussai just ended last weekend and it's a huge success!
Sadly I wasn't able to watch, but at least a couple of friends did!
I also managed to get all the goods that I want (Yasu's photo set, t-shirt and tote bag) thanks to mizuki_ichigo

And another good news?
KANJANISM LIVE TOUR 2014-2015!!!

Sapporo Dome – November 16
Tokyo Dome- December 12- 14
Nagoya Dome- December 25,27,28
Fukuoka Dome – January 3-4
Kyocera Dome   January 8,9,11,12

And guess what?
I'll be going to the Osaka shows again XDD
I don't know know how many shows I can afford by January,
But if lucky enough, I might go to all 4 Osaka shows *crosses fingers*
Hopefully at least 2 shows to make me satisfied!!
But I'll definitely go!
Especially now that I already have a multiple entry visa to Japan that's good for 3 years!

And why KANJANISM?
Simple
That's the title of their new album to be released by the end of the year!
To think that there's a couple more singles to be released very soon....
Eito is surely taking away all the Eighters' money!!

Btw, I already have a new job XD
My vacation has been cut short :D
11th-Aug-2014 01:49 am - Rurouni Kenshin - Press Conference
yasu ur mine
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

uchiwa

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 ♥♥♥

VIP

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!

front seat

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!!!

Here'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 XDD
And a shorter (and more flaily, more embarassing) video LOL

You can read the entire article here
They even called me the Luckiest. Fan. EVER.

ehe

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
sexy yasu

Hey guys!
How's everyone?

I've been too lazy to post entries here this year, just when a lot of stuff are happening
I guess I need to start posting regularly again!

To summarize some of the highlights in the past month;
- I resigned from work
- I got my multiple-entry visa to Japan
Yaaaay!

And then, I became a bit famous in the past few days :D
I made it to Arama!
Yes, believe it or not!

See that girl with a huge smile on her face?
That's me XDDD

I also made it to Rappler.com and ABS-CBNews
But I will talk about that later on, so there's suspense XD

Last August 6-7, the main casts of Rurouni Kenshin movie along with Director Keishi Otomo went here to promote the movie!
The series is one of the most popular anime series ever aired on Philippine television, so it's not a surprise that the first movie earned a lot (despite it being shown here when the official DVD is already out)
Guilty as charged, I went to the watch the first movie 4x in theaters last 2012
But that's nothing compared to some of my friends who went to watch it 9 or 10 times XD
So when the news about the cast going here to promote the upcoming sequels (Movie 2 on August 20, and Movie 3 on September 24) came out, the fans are so excited to see them!

Two shopping malls along with Warner Brothers sponsored the events
On August 6, a Red Carpet Procession was held at SM Megamall
Director Keishi Otomo, Sato Takeru, Munetaka Aoki and Takei Emi were there ♥
But before that, they gave away red carpet passes to lucky winners
One of  my friends, Ross, happened to win 2 passes, and she gave me one of them!

re

This is my view from the red carpet event

view

Sato Takeru is soooooooo cute!
People have been calling him HOT, but I beg to differ
He's still that cutiepie Kamen Rider Den-O for me
So I'll always have nee-san feels for him lol

Takei Emi is soooo pretty!
Ross even brought an Ohkura uchiwa for her ahahaha
She's soooo cute and adorable!
Her voice is so tiny lol

Director Keishi Otomo is soooo cool!
He's also really nice and I think he's overwhelmed by how much fans they have here in the Philippines

And last but not the least, MUNETAKA AOKI
GFDI
The guy is adorable!
He spoke in Engrish and Tagalog the entire time!!
Imagine that!
All the effort!!
He has a cheat sheet written on his palm in case he forgets what he wants to say
The guy exerted so much effort!
He even called Rurouni Kenshin "Samurai X", like how we call them here (because they showed the English Dubbed here first)
He really did his research!
Whenever fans are shouting "KENSHIN! KENSHIN! KENSHIN!"
He will shout "SANO! SANO! SANO!"
And whenever Kenshin or the others are asked questions, he makes sure that he also answers!
He's just soooooo adorable!
And he's only wearing slippers ahahah!

DSC_0389

They're all really nice!
They signed autographs, posed for pictures, and shook the hands of as many fans as they can!
It's so amazing!

After the red carpet event is the movie premiere
I didn't have a movie premiere pass so my friends and I just ate out afterwards
After all, we got squished in the mosh pit and we're so tired from standing up for hours XD
Some of my really close friends won premiere tickets, so all is well!

I will write about the second day on a separate entry!
And I tell you, it's even more awesome than the first one!!
