    A Great EVENT=EPIC WIN! And you were there to take the epic photos:) And Amano Ai is a great add to his staff she brings the kawaii factor to the Top! That shirt that Danny is wearing will be one of the shirts that he will have for sale at his website in the near future. I like everyone else wish that they could be there also. On photo #13 that might be a reflection or it could be tinted glasses.
    I just wish,wish wish some day I can get to Japan and visit with you. And see all the great things there is to offer, I consider Japan as my 2nd home:)

    Pic #3 looks like some 60’s advertisement photograph.

    The person with pink hat at #15 and #18, I think that is Remilia Scarlet hat from Touhou.
    So the question is, that person is a “he” or a “she”…? 😀

    I love how these events are so celebratory in Japan (as I see it). Nothing much really seems to happen at book launches (for the public) like this in the US or UK, at least not with that happy vibe I see in Japanese launches. Very unique.

  7. PocketBookReader says

    Is this book available in e-book format, anybody knows?

  8. akaa says
