Against my better judgement, I tried to get Tenimyu tickets today.

I almost decided not to bother and stay in bed a bit earlier today, but I went anyway. Although I arrived a good amount of time before, there was someone already there, although not for Tenimyu. I went to a different Lawsons and someone was queueing for Tenimyu. She was waiting at the front, with two mobile phones laid out on the ledge. I asked her very politely how many tickets she was getting (this isn't unusual, since someone asked me the same when I was at the front of the queue the other time - and guess what? I LET THEM) and she told me two, so I asked if she could get four. She said no and I apologised for bothering her.

Now how am I supposed to compete with someone who had two mobiles out? Why the fuck should I have to!? Who the hell is organising this so badly!? Why are we fighting each other to get these tickets?

I feel worse tham last time, when the machine was constantly engaged. It feels worse when a human lets you down.

(I noticed an ad for an Air Gear musical..?)

I went to try today and just gave up after 15 min because it was impossible to get through. Even with the added shows in Tokyo, I still couldn't even connect.... Tenimyu keeps getting harder and harder to get tickets to, it's just so annoying. I'm really glad that there's Burimyu and Rock'n Jam this January to take their places. (Though I didn't get through on the presale for Burimyu, I'm really hoping to be able to make it on the general sale day *crosses fingers*)

And check out gekipuri if you want information on the Air Gear Myu. ^^

Yeah... looks likes I'm going to be checking out Yahoo Japan Auctions...

Ah, I figured I'd just pick up Lawson's Ticket to find out about them. I don't really care who's in it. :P Will check it out though...

I want to see it only because anime-turned-musicals are always worth watching. Plus I'm curious because I swear that show was so /macho/. Or am I not remembering correctly...?

Hiya!

Totallyyyyyy off-topic. I just wanted to say that I finally noticed you on my List (I almost never go to my profile page), and added you back. I noticed this because I was looking at your Side B stuff when I realized...hey...that's a little lock at the top of that post, and I can read it. -_-; <=Little slow on the uptake...

Also, you live in Japan? That's awesome! My husband, friend, and I will be in Tokyo from April 3- April 16th. If you want to meet and go shopping or clubbing or whatever, just let me know. I can bring you stuff from the States, too, if there's anything you want. We're staying in Ikebukurou this time, but we'll obviously be all over Tokyo.

Also...too luck on the tickets. From what I've heard, that system DOES blow...

...that was supposed to be "tough" luck, of course.

Reminder to self: never type anything within ten minutes of waking up...

Haha, no worries!

Yeah, sure! I'm not much of a clubber (mainly because house and hip hop seems to be the only music played over here), but I'm sure I could show you some interesting places. Izakaya are the best for places to eat at night -- have you heard of them?

Ikebukuro, huh? That's where I live! Well, a few stops down on the Marunouchi Line, but it's close enough to walk from Ikebukuro if I've been drinking late at night or feel the need for exercise. :)
Fluffymaru: Viewfinderfluffymaru on 22nd November 2006 22:31 (UTC)

House and Hip-Hop? Blah. I'm probably spoiled, since my idea of a club is Disney's Pleasure Island (70's and 80's, alternative rock, and an improve show are what we usually club to). We might still go, just to do it once.

No, I've never heard of Izakaya...what is it? And cool places to eat= good. Last time, we ate McDonald's once a day, sometimes more than once. We're not too adventurous with our food, unfortunately...

I'm excited to be staying in Ikebukuro this time. I loved staying at the Hilton in Shinjuku last time, but I apparently missed out on ALL the yaoi doujin last time we were there. First of all, I didn't *know* that Ikebukuro was the place for it, and second, my hubby got a migraine after we left the Sunshine City complex, so we went straight back to the hotel. Missed all the good shops, apparently. Won't happen again ::evil grin::

Also, I'm freaked out how much I'm connected to you without having known you before nekojita linked me to you. Like being on hinoai's journal, you running the Loveless community (which I *finally* remembered to join- I'm never online when I think about it), some of the other people you know...it really is a small world.

Gotta go- cookies just came out of the oven.

Yeah, they used to have some great clubs in Aberdeen (my university town). I like rock/industrial/etc, but I've never found that kind of club!

An izakaya is kind of like an inn -- you can choose from many different courses and drinks in a 'traditional' atmosphere. If you get a reasonable amount of people together, you can get 'all-you-can-drink' deal with complete with a food course. Food plus all you can drink costs about 3000 yen per person for two hours. It's worth it, considering drink prices!

Macdonalds!? Ah, you should try Ten'ya instead. They have a branch in Sunshine City. Basically, it's rice with tenpura on top. Do you like sushi? There's a nice (and intimate) sushi bar outside. There's also a GREAT all-you-can-eat curry place too. Any of these appeal?

I can, of course, direct you to the yaoi. ;)

Nekojita linked me? How strange... Ah well, nice to meet you! :)

Ahhhhh. Not to sound totally geek, but is that one of those places in anime that a group goes to that looks like a traditonal inn and usually have a huge party and drink a lot?

Haha...no, not really. I'm super picky, a meat and potatoes type girl. Thus, my issues while in Japan. I'm going to *try* and be more open next time there...

I can, of course, direct you to the yaoi. ;)

But of course!

Nekojita linked me? How strange... Ah well, nice to meet you! :)

Yeah, she sent me this way for...Side B translations, I think. I'm despite to know what the hell is actually going on there...I'm so canon deprived right now!

Why, do you guys not get along? Actually, I was curious where you saw me at that made you add me ahead of time. I'm always amazed by how small the internet world is...
Williamgenkischuldich on 29th November 2006 10:34 (UTC)
Something like that! You can get more than just Japanese food there though -- you can get Japanese-style Western food, like pizza.

Unfortunately, there's still about five issues missing. It's difficult to translate for any length of time because of my kitty. ^^ Nekojita and I get along fine -- I'm just surprised that anyone would bother to direct other people to me, that's all. ^^ I added you because I was looking around LJ (you buy blocks of 15 mins at the net cafe, and I'd done everything I needed) and you seemed interesting.
