I give up, I have fallen in love with mamegomas. How could you not? And they mean a special thing to Kei and I, from last summer ne? ^-^ Today, Mippa and I caught tons of mamegomas in the game catchers in Ikebukuro, and it was time well-spent for sure☆ I'm definitely going to become obsessed! I usually don't go in strongly for gimmicky things, but this is too cute to pass up. I've added these four to the two that I already have to form a cutely adorable little family. Let the collection commence~~~ (i.e.~ watch me slowly become more and more obsessed with them ^^;)

We poked around Ikebukuro for a while also, and I walked away with the entire series of "僕は妹に恋をする" ("I'm in love with my younger sister") for 1200 yen. Steal! It's a deliciously racy little series that I recommend to people who like the sort of thing that would run in, oh, say... Shocomi. (Think Love Celeb, etc) But overlooking that, I really have enjoyed it even though I haven't gotten too far in it. PS: I just found out that it's becoming a movie next year! Whoa!

Speaking of movies, Mippa and I applied to be extras in the second Nana movie. I really, REALLY hoped that we're picked!!!! How cool would that be, to be a part of the movie for a series that I really idolize? Beyond cool!! If picked (if there's too many applicants, it's by random lottery), we'd basically just be the crowd in the Blast concert. Ahhhh but that is so awesome, I'm so excited!! No pay, but a free t-shirt commemorating the event, and of course the best part-- to be a part of Nana!!! ^o^ I need to catch up on the manga, so I will do that soonish... I've been thinking lately that I might look for a good agency to sign up with to see if there's any kind of extras parts I could get in movies or series. It might be easy and kind of exciting and a way to involve myself and meet lots of cool, unusual people. ^^

I am in love with this manga series: ゾッチャの日常 ("Zoccha's everyday") If you like cats, I cannot recommend it more highly!! The artist (Ikefuji Yumi) is brilliant in the way that she draws her cats. Amazing!! It has to be one of the cutest things that I've EVER seen, and SO realistic!! Or rather, the cats are of course slightly cariactured, but they make the same expressions that my cats would always make! Seriously, JUST like them! And the japanese is pretty easy since it's from the cat's point of view. Really, really, really highly recommend this series!! It runs monthly now in Cookie (which is how I came to know of it), and was really the only series besides Nana in there to catch my eye so far.

In other news, I have been working on my japanese a LOT. I'm really trying-- my soul craves fluency in the elusive second language. Let's communicating, Japan! ^o^// 一緒に頑張りましょう!
PS: I am SO going to watch this anime series on tv. Only in Japan, I tell you.

Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on September 23rd, 2006 10:21 pm (UTC)
I am so bad with languages that I don't think that it's a realistic option, unfortunately. I want to learn Japanese because of where I live and all of my friends here, and of course because I want to write stories in Japanese, but..... it's so difficult for me... ;_; I think that's about all that I can handle! (I can speak a little bit of Spanish though, but not much....)

Hello I dropped in from SurvivorJunkies (I was the one fighting with heatherpantss over your comment LOL). I like you. And I think you being in Japan to pursue your dreams is incredible. Mind if I add you?
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on September 23rd, 2006 10:22 pm (UTC)
Thank you!! ^__^ I don't mind at all!
I didn't read that comment war (since only the first one came to my box... can't wait to read it! =D)

Oh, I've seen those mamegoma things here. They looked so familiar when I saw this entry on my friends page. Can't remember where exactly I saw them in person though...

Whoa, I hope you get picked! That sounds so incredibly cool. You'll probably stand out in the crowd like you do at Tenimyu. XD

And good luck on your Japanese! I hope to learn Japanese soon, too... and your devotion is inspirational to newbies like me. :00!

There should be a law against being that cute. x3

I like the texture of the middle one.
Hope you and you friend get a part in the movie.
See ya~

Ahhh, that's what they are! I saw someone with a moving icon of those mamegomas and I had no idea what they were. Hahahaha, they're cute. I like the fact you can get different colours, hmm I can see the addictive possibilities- kind of like beanie babies but different. ;o)

Good luck with the Nana movie!
Mon☆Monmony_chan on September 24th, 2006 02:17 am (UTC)
OMG! (o^o^o)
They're so cute!
P.S. You're my new Idol, I'm telling you, becuase you're so lucky to be over there! And becuase I so know how difficult the language it's! 日本語はとても難しいですねえ。。。

Awww they're so cute! -pokes- xD
I have a knack for collecting small little plushies and forming a family too. o.o; Mine are all named lol.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on September 24th, 2006 04:19 am (UTC)
They're all named "lol"? How do you tell them apart? =D
Kathy★キャシーkatokathy on September 24th, 2006 04:25 am (UTC)
Oh they're all different, rages from cats, dogs, bears and monkeys lol. The only ones that are actually anime related are my Hello Kitty, Shigure Sohma Dog and Kyo Sohma cat. >.<

I want one of these things if there is any

Sana-chan: Dance Shuji~!sana_chan on September 24th, 2006 04:34 am (UTC)
Oh how cool! I hope you get picked to be an extra! I was an extra in Veronica Mars and had a lot of fun doing it =)
Jennifer.Smilespriter on September 24th, 2006 08:33 am (UTC)
I applied too a while back :) *fingers crossed*

Oh gosh, too cool! I really wanted to buy one, but the only place I found one recently was at Anime Weekend Atlanta, and a tiny one was $35... =_= Needless to say, I didn't buy it... I wish I had resource of getting stuff from Japan! D:
Like today, my 2 roommates were looking at really cute lolita outfits on the net... but after shipping the amount would be atrocious. ><
Oh gosh, the second Nana movie! *__* As if the first one wasn't enough to die for! But I've fallen behind on the anime! I don't get bittorrent here on campus so my rare monthly visit home is spent downloading an episode or two... which this last break was spent with Death Note 1 and D.Gray-man 1 (waste of time! D:)
