New York Anime Festival (NYAF) which あ!PoN got to cover. And I got to interview a certain director of a certain big robot series... His name? Yoshiyuki Tomino of Gundam 0079 and most of the UC series fame! People seemed intimidated by his presence but my sit down chat with him went quite well and we shared many laughs! Then he signed all these items for me from my trip to Odaiba in Japan! So the signed Gundam Boxes perfectly closes the Gundam extravaganza! Man what an awesome experience! Just as a refresher here are the links to the photos I shot from Japan in the GUNDAM FOLDER! Hopefully I'll be able to translate the show and air it soon on AnimePodcast.net !

The JAPAN, GUNDAM and KYOTO Folder will be placed on the side bar now so that if ever anyone needs some rising sun it'll be there with open arms! Time to rest... Will be back later~
Fun Fact: We will arrive in New York the exact same time and they that we left. Time Traveling is fun! ZZZzzz..*
airport bus (no more JR RAIL PASS boo). James is gonna send us off. So this is the last look of this great view (for now). OK don't want to miss our flight (or do we)...
Rainbow Bridge is in the back, and the ferris wheel. Oh yea and the big cross section that looks like Tokyo Tower or even the Kanji for Fire (火). Had Kaiten with James and Bonnie, then Bonnie went home, and I then we went off to Pachi-Slot faired so-so but over all fun! Took a cab back, and I must admit having GPS in a cab is great! Well no sleep tonight (that's what the plane is for). Gonna start packing and maybe get to that slice of pizza from Pizza La (we went for a snack lol).

Lumine for some shopping and such found one of my favorite shops Village Vanguard, and this one store called UNDER KING which sells, you guessed it Underwear. The thing that caught my eye were these 70 dollar Gatchaman Undies. Why 70? Well because it's a limited Yoshitaka Amano Special! There were 3 designs all cool all EXPENSIVE! So I snapped the pic you see now. Now off to Tokyo Tower, sunsets at six-ish today so time to go~!
Tokyo Tower, planning to get there just before sunset to get both day and night views of Tokyo! Then swing back to Shinjuku to have dinner with James and Bonnie and then show James some tricks and trades to Pachi-Slot! We're going for broke today! Oh yea.. And then pack!

Tokyo Tower just in time for it to close! Looks like we're coming back here tomorrow! Got some great pics of Tokyo Tower, won't post now will save that for tomorrow. Lots and lots of walking had, James broke off with us at Shibuya, but we rendezvous with him again later in Kabuki-Cho for some good food at Izakaiya Mermaid (I think)! Now back and should start packing but I think we'll do an all nighter on the last day!
Himawari KAITEN SUSHI! Yes!!! So good, so cheap! Then went all around Nishi-Shinjuku to see the Sumitomo building with an atrium that ran through the whole building! Checked out a huge book store in the Cocoon building in the area, man this area is great, the best part is all these views are free of charge! Next relax a bit and head back to Shibuya in search of Mandarake, and Three Minutes of Happiness!
Would be stranged if I stopped now go check out JAPAN, GUNDAM and KYOTO folder for the rest of this fun trip! And cause some people were curious here is the SWAG pic!
