Macross F x Sheryl Nome ~live~  
So!! Last Tuesday, I took a break from 8million projects and went to the special cafe with a few friends, the Hibari-te Cafe! I wish that it wasn't only on special days, because I would SO go back!! I want to go back again next time!! Why was it so great?? Because it's staffed by only boys dressed in maid outfits!! XD;; They were really nice, for the most part really pretty, and just so amusing. =^-^= I couldn't afford to buy any of their photos that they were selling, but they said that at Comicket, they may have a booth and sell a photobook!! Oh YEAH, definitely going to get that! =D;; The best part may have been when they asked what we thought when we first heard about them, and were like, "it's so gross, right?" Of course not!! =D Totally an "I MUST GO THERE!!" feeling. They even managed to call Eda out as a fujoushi. XD;; Now next time, I really, really hope that they make it nonsmoking, so that the old men next to us aren't ruining everybody's fun with their acrid death-sticks. :x

But but!! Maid-boys! Seriously, if you are in Tokyo, this is a must-see!!! =D =D =D

Yesterday after work, Adrian asked me if I'd like to go to a free concert nearby. Hey, why not!! =D When you are low on cash, free is just the right word!! =D;; It turned out that it was outside in a plaza, and featuring Cheryl's seiyuu (?) from the new Macross Frontiers anime. =^-^= I haven't seen the new Macross show, but after hearing the really catchy music, I really want to see it!! ^O^ The singer was pretty cute, and although there were a few rude employees trying to keep order by jabbing people (at least I wasn't the only one complaining about that), it was good! I love bouncy music!! ^O^ It was a nice time!

Today, I have so many things to do, but I feel a bit useless. My head is pounding and I have literally no energy.. I don't think that I'm getting sick, but I really hope not!! I guess that I'll just give up and rest for a few hours and see if I feel any better by dinnertime..

Oh man, and this is definitely the best season of Survivor EVER. ♥ So so classic. I may or may not think that the final 4 deserve their positions, but you can't deny-- they sure have kept Tribal councils entertaining! And James' comment was the best, "I've officially lost my post as the dumbest survivor ever." XDXD;; Seriously, I would recommend this season over ALL others. XD;;

Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on May 10th, 2008 08:57 am (UTC)
Yeah, no kidding!!! XD (which is why you should come visit!! Well, that and my desperation wanting to show you around!! :O)
Simply NANAtoriru4ever on May 10th, 2008 08:03 am (UTC)
only in Japan :D
I'm definitely gonna check that out the next time I visit Tokyo ^^
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on May 10th, 2008 08:57 am (UTC)
XD Well, they're a special-event sort of thing, so they only happen around holidays... But you should keep an eye on their webpage and maybe you can plan around their next event! =D

I... I want to go oh so badly to that cafe. Maybe you could take me along with you guys next time? *////*
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on May 10th, 2008 08:57 am (UTC)
Sure!! ^O^ The more the merrier!!

Oh dude I would've wanted to go to that concert. I love the Macross F music. Especially Sheryl's "Diamond Crevasse." But that's sung by May'n who sings as Sheryl in the anime. So I think that must've been May'n you saw and not Endo Aya who is Sheryl's seiyuu. If you watch the anime, I think you'll like Ranka.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on May 10th, 2008 08:56 am (UTC)
Yeah, I think May'n was her name! So they have two different seiyuu, so to speak (like Gravi)? Uwa! Now I wish that I knew what the other songs that she sang were, because I just listened to the CD and it turns out that my favorite one wasn't on it. ;_;

If I hear about another Macross event, I'll let you know! ^o^ I didn't know that you wouldn't have wanted to go, but then even for me it was a sudden thing. As I was winding down from work, Adrian asked if I was doing anything and boom!! We just had time to run down and catch it. XD;; I love working in Akihabara-- so close to the fun! XD
mizukiayamizukiaya on May 10th, 2008 12:45 pm (UTC)
Maybe she sang "What 'bout my star?"
And I'd be surprised if she didn't sing "Iteza..."
In Macross F, there are two idol singers. Sheryl and Ranka. Sheryl's songs are sung by May'n but Ranka's songs are actually sung by her seiyuu Nakajima Megumi.^^
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on May 10th, 2008 01:40 pm (UTC)
I think that first song might have been it.. I would know it if I heard it again, but I can't really remember the lyrics. It had a really GREAT powerful part though. It wasn't on any of the two CDs that I found on t.toshokan. Do you know if it was released on a CD at all? *must have*
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on May 10th, 2008 02:21 pm (UTC)
I saw a video of "What 'bout my star?" on YouTube, and that was it!! The song that I liked best! Only it sounded a thousand times better when the girl sang it live. (as did all of the other songs, actually. They're a bit disappointing on the CDs actually, not nearly as powerful or as well-sung)

See, cross dressing just doesn't interest me. Sorry. I prefer my guys to dress like men.

When I'm back in Oslo, though, I need to take pictures in their statue park. It's a bit odd:

Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on May 10th, 2008 09:13 am (UTC)
ROFLOL!! In the back of that picture there are Yapoo!!!! It's the Yapoo! Wow, some sculptor in Oslo DEFINITELY read Yapoo the human cattle. Oh my, I really want to go there, just for the strangeness of it all and to be among Yapoo.

I hear you about the crossdressing, in a way. I much much prefer my girls to look like girls (butch even is out). I've been to the cafe here that has girls dressing up as boys, but it's not really appealing at all. I suppose that it's just the whole femininity of it all that really appeals to me. =d (be it women or men behind the dresses XD)

ok japan really does cater for every taste...

and that's why I love it so much XD
*makes a list of "things to do while in tokyo next time"*
my first bullet point is "spend more time with jamie!"
since we only got to spend like 1-2 days together on my previous 2 visits

and yeah non-smoking cafés&restaurants ftw
I can't wait until the non-smoking laws in germany finally take action... there's already a smoking ban in the netherlands and belgium and some of the other german "states"... ~-~ just not in mine *boo*

Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on May 10th, 2008 01:41 pm (UTC)
Uwaa! I really want to spend more time with you too!! ;o; It's really hard to do it during the rainy season too (and especially with how busy I've been lately..). But we definitely have to make more time next time! Maybe go to an amusement park too. ^^
Kira_Shadowkira_shadow on May 10th, 2008 01:52 pm (UTC)
I'll hopefully be in Japan for 6months at least next time so...yeah, definitely more flexible (depending on uni schedule)!

*saves more money*
fila: treasurefila_desu on May 10th, 2008 10:09 am (UTC)
It's featured here too! I thought, "Yes! Finally, a maid cafe where GUYS are the servants. One of my fantasies have some true.." *___*

Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on May 10th, 2008 01:42 pm (UTC)

filafila_desu on May 11th, 2008 03:08 am (UTC)
Way beyond awesome! Lol!

Ah. Sorry I haven't been commenting/replying to your entries. I've been so...busy with school work. Its not fun. I really hope you feel better! :) I so totally want to see the maid-boys now whenever I go to Japan. I will. I think I will. I know I will.

Man, I haven't seen survivor. I saw...a couple of episodes and it seems really interesting. On ABC, there is the mole game coming out in June which I definitely will see! :) I've been focusing on Dancing with the stars, you can see it on youtube. :) Its great. I want to learn how to dance now!

Cheer up and feel better! :) I hope your financial issues get work out and everything. Ah excuse my grammar mistakes! :)

Hey, I hope you don't mind me replying your journal seems interesting! I hope to go to Japan once I finish my education (only 3 more years)! You make it seem really exciting! Do you mind if I add you so that I can find your journal again? Sorry new to livejournal bit confused by it!
Anyway sounds like you had fun!

Hope you feel better!

cryduchatcryduchat on May 12th, 2008 01:46 pm (UTC)
Wow. I am very confused by the maid boys. Is it like a fetish place?
James Pickenstolarin on May 12th, 2008 02:09 pm (UTC)


Of course I have to be at sea for that....
