Today for dessert I had sweet bukkake cream balls.  
I also bought soft golden poo. It was squishy, and you can stick your finger into the bottom of it. It came from a vending machine. (It is molded foam and has a smiley face on it. It's a keychain XD) Other amusing things bought from vending machines include a "cup'o'noodle" keychan, molded into just that, XD, and a cute figurine of Tigger.

Today for dessert I had sweet bukkake cream balls. They were green. Oh, and salty, and really good. I'm seriously not joking. Okay, we don't know if they were bukakke cream, but it was offered on the menu (we ordered from the advertised special which didn't specify), but yeah... See below for a picture of one of the menu items. ROFL. It was quite the fangirlish day, spent in Akihabara with Eda (dilettantka). I had a lot of fun, and it was rather relaxing, which was nice. I felt like I connected with her a lot more as a friend, just chatting about things. It was fun. ^_^

First we met up in Akihabara and visited all of the anime stores that we could get our greedy little hands on, including the animate that I hadn't noticed before. XD Akihabara is a really amazing place in the daytime. ^^ Eda bought the new Tenipuri Dream Live DVD for more money than I want to say, and I bought a few small things here and there, like the rest of the Futakoi mini-posters. ^^ I bought sometbing for Athy that really really surprised me was even available (but so perfect I had to get it), and something for Nav and later on something for Elvy. We drooled over other things that we couldn't buy, too, and then headed down to this basement cafe for lunch, where we had the aforementioned treat. It was really good and only 100¥. We had lunch specials that included a bowl of rice with topping (I chose salmon), and curry udon. Wow.. I think it was one of the best meals that I've eaten in Japan, and came to just a little over 800¥. I'm impressed. I'll definitely return. They even had an english menu, which was a nice little bonus.

After some more slumming at Aki, we headed back to Shinjuku and had quiet tea/coffee at Starbucks. They understood that I wanted a chai tea latte! I'm happy! =^_^= Either my japanese-style pronunciation of english is getting better or they're just used to american customers (probably the latter XD, not for my lack of trying). We chatted for a looooong time, which was probably my favorite part of the evening, and then made our way to Kinokuniya to check out the english section. ^_^ They didn't have the english manga that I wanted, but there was a few amusing japanese-english books including a book of "essential japanese phrases" that included such useful sentences as "My father parks the car in the garage when it rains." I didn't buy it, surprise? XDD There was also a rather amusing comic-book-thing titled "You know you've lived in Japan too long when" that was amusing. ^__^ It's like watching Lost in Translation; the jokes aren't nearly as funny unless you've experienced it. XD

After that store (where I bought the manga Hatsukoi Elegy, which is a cute uke-uke boy's love story that I'm now dying to read), we sat around for a while longer and chatted, and then left for home. ^^ As always, the ride back tired me out. Oh, we did ponder going to Roppongi for halloween night, which I'm totally up for. <3 It'll be an all-nighter!! ^__^ I wish that I didn't have to work that day, since I can't be out until 7. T_T But it's all good. We'll celebrate with the street famous for foreigners, and chances are there will be a lot of people in costume ^_^ I can't wait!

From last week in Nakano... A PoT costume, and don't even ask how much it cost. You'll die of shock. O_O

Some of the people that I work with, when we went out last week once after work. ^^ They’re all sweethearts. ^^

Here’s a really rare sight: The Yamanote train line having enough room to sit. XD Anyways, this is what the inside of the nicer trains look like.

Aaand.... Akihabara in the daytime! ^_^

They served Bukkake noodles too. XDDD

And some nice pictures of Shinjuku buildings just after sunset ^_^

You are much braver than I. Anything that had Bukkake in the title as a food item, I might want to steer clear of, just on basic principle. *LOL*

Nah, we're just dorks. It didn't have bukkake in the title that we ordered from, but I'm pretty sure that's what it was. It was irresistable! XDD

I love Akihabara. When I used to go in the 90's it was mostly techie stuff....now its the best concentration of anime and hobby stuff around. Plus it has the oh so geeky but cool Cure Maid Cafe (Cosplay Cafe). They wear Victorian style maid outfits, and according to their website the waitresses occasionally play chamber music.

Asobit World (I think that is the name) is Llaox's mega hobby store. That place is awesome. I could spend hours on each floor. They have a cool airsoft shooting range too!

Aside from Akihabara, I notice that Ikebukuro is turning into quite the hot spot for shoujo manga shops...plus the mega Animate is hard to beat. Also, I always feel like the Ikebukuro shops are neater. Maybe because they don't get mobbed like the Akihabara ones. Oh yeah, plus the cool Volks in Ikebukuro, plus Systema if you're into airsoft.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on October 18th, 2004 03:58 pm (UTC)
Oh, I totally agree, Ikebukuro is the place to go. =^_^= Especially for those into BL comics. There's a big Mandarake and K Books there that both specialize in BL doujinshis. ^___^ Oh, but they do get mobbed, especially on Sundays or when school is out.. I've nearly gotten creamed by the fangirls on multiple occasions! XDD

I really need to try that Cure Maid Cafe and Asobit world!! I'll mark them on my sheet for next time! <3 Thanks for the heads-up!

Every time you do one of these posts, I get more and more excited. We're going to get my passport next month and then start shopping around for airfair, so I know when to take off of work. I'm so, SO geeked over this, you have NO idea. *__*
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on October 18th, 2004 04:00 pm (UTC)
Yaaaay!! ^__^ I can't wait to see both of you! ^.^ It'll be soooooo much fun!! <3 Just as long as you don't make your vacation directly over Anizona (www.anizona.org) then it'll be perfect!! <3

I think you broke me with your choice of food.

Bukkake Udon is the best! So tasty! Yeah.

Anyway, that's not one of the nicer trains. The really nice ones are the express ones down in Kansai. It has nice seats that allows you to have a drink holder and you can look out your window without bending your neck too much. Not to mention, it's the same price as a regular train. So nice.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on October 18th, 2004 05:56 pm (UTC)
Compared to most of the trains in Tokyo, it's a looot nicer. Many of the trains are really run down. I love this particular set of newer trains because they actually announce the stops in english too and have little video monitors with commercials and information in english. ^_^

Poor east Japan train people.... West Japan has the kicking Universal Studios train and the Kansai Rapid Airport Shuttle train. Not to mention a great number of express trains that announce everything in English. *pats back* it's okay. It's still crowded and you don't get to enjoy most of the luxuries anyway.
