I'm...I'm back from Japan!! :') + photos

Journal Entry: Sun Jul 28, 2013, 10:02 PM
I seriously didn't want to come back though. Japan was like I remembered after all, unchanging and wonderful. The place I love the most. :cries:

gahhhhhh It's really been a long dA break! How are you everyone?? :iconkissmote: please please tell me your stories, summer experiences, anything!! :love: I truly missed dA! (although I stole the house laptop few times to stalk here :lmao:)
Let me begin with a short list of achievements and goals that I have accomplished during this trip :la: :

:bulletblue: I met old and new friends, few even kindly came from Ibaraki all the way to Tokyo to meet!! :blush:
:bulletblue: satisfied my hunger for D. Gray Man volumes
:bulletblue: collected Chrono Crusade last volume *so many feels* :noes:
:bulletblue: the same for claymore volumes
:bulletblue: satisfied my hunger for CODE BREAKER volumes (seriously it's epic in every sense)
:bulletblue: watched FREE! on tv :lmao:
:bulletblue: went to Akiba once again
:bulletblue: Visited an Aquarium
:bulletblue: went to the countryside
:bulletblue: ATE A BUNCH OF NIKUMAN AHAHAHAHAH
:bulletblue:  ate maccha ice :heart:

:bulletblue:CAMPED A WHOLE MONTH ON

BOOKOFF

STORES MUWAHAHA
BOOKOFF is a bookstore that sells second hand & new manga volumes. The older the volume gets, the smaller the price will be.
Thanks to that, an old volume is roughly 105 yen, 1 DOLLAR guys :la:
then they go up from 300 to 400 << (all the Magi is 400 yen) and eventually special ones are 900 yen (like Chrono Crusade FFF :icontheyfoundmeplz:)
But it's much more cheap than US, Canada and all the rest of the worldddd :la:


I had a whole bunch of trouble with the luggage when coming back though! :XD:

There were also wish cards. You write wishes on them at festivals and then tie them up somewhere.
Can you guess this wish?

" wo-ru maria wo dakkan dekimasu youni. "

" I hope Wall Maria will be reclaimed. "

That's it, everyone! :hug:
I hope you saw what I saw.

I'm glad to be with my family of paws (doggie, Gilbert etc.) and to be at home,
most importantly, my mother made sacrifices to pay for my trip,
but I still wish
even a little
if there was
a tiny fragment of time left
how happy I'd be.

I'll do my best so I can study animation there in few years.

but uchuu is dumb and irresponsible and really late with the mathematics...
this stupid fat star doesn't like to study and isn't aware of the consequences
I hope this trip heals these uncertainties and makes me walk on a straighter path.

Thank you for always being with me guys.

:glomp:
:heart:

I'll be going to Japan (Don't know when yet) Is there a good amount of English spoken there?
Reply
:iconuchuubranko:
uchuubranko Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2013  Student General Artist
Nope.

There are two kind of situations you can get in by speaking only english :
ask someone a somehow usual but kind of complicated english phrase and :

1) some might be like "n-no sorry" and run
 
2) some will actually try to help you till' the end without understanding a single word! :dummy: :heart:
The english there is a bit low. But you shouldn't be discouraged by that, mostly ALL the people are very generous and kind! :love: Using basic, basic english would help alot :la:

But having a Japanese language guide might help moar~! :nod:
