Better late than never I guess ^^; Today we look at life in Tokyo leading up to when I left for Shanghai. Before I leave for France, hopefully I'll get time to post events have happened since I got back from Shanghai.
First photo - taken nearby our place at "mai second other office" or in other words - a flight of steps leading up to the roof of an office block. Difficult to make out in the photo but from here we can see Tokyo Tower, Roppongi Hills and Shinjuku in the far background.
Tomorrow will be exactly 3 months since the earthquake. Apart from being dark in a few places at night and on the metro, everything is pretty much back to normal. The North is on the recovery but many folks are still suffering. I didn't get the opportunity to head up there and help out but will do so as soon as I'm back from Anime Expo.
Anime Expo is just one of the things that I've been busy with of late. Have been organizing some of the guests, working on the Miku concert and I'll be displaying stuff in the Exhibitor halls too. Then there is the conference in France that I'm speaking at just before AX - details further down the post.
Tis rather busy fun incredibly fun! I just cant wait to wake up each and every morning ^^;
Checking out the latest games at Sofmap. My current gaming is still Valkyria Chronicles 3. Wish there was a way to install the whole UMD so that I don't need to keep swapping discs - or is there a way? I know that these games can be fully downloaded from the Playstation Store though.
Playing around with the Olympus XZ-1 - excellent all-round camera with nice wide and macro lens that gives a lovely bokeh. I heard there maybe an upgraded model out this Autumn though - wifey wants one.
The T-shirt is of Mirai in her Solar Marine uniform geared up in a Retrograde Suit which you may have seen in the Mirai Millennium Design post.
The T-shirt is available from J-List for 19.95 USD where 25% is being donated to the Japanese Red Cross Society. I'm not accepting any royalties from sales and the remainder just enables J-List to cover production costs.
The text on the T-Shirt is "Ganbare Nippon!!" which in this case means "Keep fighting, Japan!!" or "Don't give up, Japan!!"
There is also a sleeveless version for the ladies or Hideyoshi's out there.
The print on the silk screen T-shirt is not full color however and Mirai's face does look a wee bit white-ish so avoid if that would not be your cuppa tea.
Touch down at Hongqiao Airport in Shanghai ready for a week of business wheelings n dealings. You can see the journey back to Tokyo from Shanghai in the Tokyo Arrival 3 post.
