Last day for Comiket and Happy New Year!

The day started out like it has but earlier. The complimentary breakfast of champions as seen above, made lovingly by nice elderly ladies. I really like the Toyoko Inn. It's clean and the staff are really helpful and nice. Then off to the con.

I have survived the last day of 'ket. Whew what a ride. The crowd was much more like how american conventions used to be between the sexes, much to my shagrin. Probably about 99 percent men as the picture shows of us waiting, unlike the second day where it's about 95 percent women who are picking up their boy love doujinshi. Sorry I wasn't able to take any pictures inside but they don't allow any photography inside. The asiles were crammed with otaku and sometimes you were pushed along wheather you wanted to go a certain way or not. But by the end of the day it was a little less crowded and you can move around but some of the more popular circles were already gone for the day, having sold out of their books. :(

Andrew and I were starving by the time we were done so we stopped by the McDonald's before getting on the train to have a Mega Tamago set. I don't think you will see them carrying this back in the States, with the general health concerns, but boy was it tasty. It had a nice spicy black pepper sauce that complimented the egg nicely.

Tonight I think we're going to take it easy and go out and see how they celebrate New Year's Eve. Andrew says it's not really this night that's the holiday but New Year's Day, where you go to a temple and wish for a good new year and such. Hopefully we'll be doing that tomorrow.

Pic #1, Is that what I see you had for breakfast? Just rice cakes and miso soup?

Pic #2, "A man walks down the street in that hat, people know he's not afraid of anything."

Pic #3, "You know what they call a Big Mac in Amsterdam?"

Well, I hope you didn't miss out of any of the circles you wanted to get to. By any chance did you see Dan?

Happy New Year to you, Andrew and Miki over there!
