Huh… the site is all broken. Or was broken. Maybe it works now. Or maybe it’s still broken. Who knows. Naturally things would break when we’re not at home. HA!
It’s crappy and rainy here in Tokyo. We’re sitting in a cafe located in Ikebukuro, whilst checking the site and other things. Reika is playing Puzzle Dragons (nintendo version!), and I’m busy sorting out some DNS problem with the site.
Ikebukuro is an interesting place. Outside of Akihabara and Nakano, there is also a certain otaku presence about the place (though not quite as apparent right out of the station gates).
However, unlike those other places, this seems to cater to female otaku, especially along “otome road”. Like other major city centers like Shibuya or Harajuku, this place is always packed with people and millions of shops.
Anyhow, nothing interesting going on here. Here’s some stuff.
The latest issue of Entame magazine came with a Nogizaka46 bonus. Also picked up the 7-11 bonus goods from their collaboration promo.
Speaking of Nogizaka46, and I’m not sure if there are any Nogizaka46 fans out there, but I started translating the official blog entries.
Why? There are a few reasons.
- I wanted to try different blogging software. Therefore, rather than making it part of this site, it’s a separate site.
- I can never get enough Japanese practice. As much as I like making subbed videos, I prefer translating text over subbing, timing, and video encoding.
- Ikuta Erika is too cute (>_<)
Anyhow, I hope this site works now :-/
More random updates incoming…
Sometimes editor. Sometimes translator. Mostly a proofreader. I like Japan and things.
