So AFA X (X for 2010 – similar to Masked Rider X, the letter X was used just the third time into a series. Using the letter X so early means there isn’t a chance to use it for a better time in the future.) is coming this weekend but I’m not going there this time.
For one, I have exams later this month as usual. Second, the ticket pricing is even more ridiculous than last year’s, and for me there isn’t much new stuff to expect. It’s not worth the even shittier grades than I already have now to see repeat stuff. Most of the events are repeats from last year, and I have no idea who the new stars that are coming are. I’m not a crazed animu fan so I have no idea who AKB848 and all the other singers are.
On the other hand there is the airing of the Gundam 00 movie and The Disappearance of Haruhi. I’ve read spoilers for both of them already so I don’t want to pay extra and go there on both days early in the morning just to see this. I’ll wait for their DVD releases and watch them in peace.
And if you convince yourself that the people going there are all hikikomori’s leaving their rooms once a year for this, then maybe you’ll want to skip this event too. Or if you make yourself believe all the horror stories about crazed hambeasts/neckbeards and stuff and you’re mingling with people like these (WARNING: adult content galore on the rest of the site).
So weigh these against my shitty exam grades and you’ll have a clear winner.
Anyway the postman came today with this box a few days later than I expected. Since it’s SAL, that couldn’t be helped, but imagine my reaction to this.
Oh crap. Wonder if anything inside is squashed.
Thank goodness everything is pristine. As for the Nendoroid Petit box, I’ll be hounding someone for payment again.
Mio joins the rest of the band after being late by almost a year. Oh god what have I done.
I guess Ichiro Mizuki deserves a mention here since he sang the theme to Kamen Rider X and he’s going to AFA again.
