The newbie rush (CM67 Day 2)
I just realized I could be at Comic Market at 6:00 in the morning, if I leave (now left) my hotel at 5:15. No boast-y updates in the time span I got. I could bore you to death with the anime and manga I got on the first day and the other audio CDs and DVD deals I unearthed in Akihabara, but like I said I'm pressed for time. Let me just say the overriding theme was Rozen Maiden and telephone cards. Hahaha.
There is one thing I want to share with you, and that's the Shikigami no Shiro II soundtrack arcade Naomi version. I got a "special" plastic bag to go with it too. It was 500 yen selling at the kigyou (commercial) booths.
And then I almost forgot the reason I went the first day. High on my gaming list was going to the doujin group Kaiten Mokugyou, who seems like a one person operation. Ms. "Riddle" has released another Ikaruga-themed soundtrack, but it's only two songs. I guess it's hard to beat a 3 (2?) year old dead horse and find inspiration. She recognized me as the tsuuhan (mail-order) guy and she said bring your friends. I mumbled some excuse about having only like-minded friends on message boards like www.ikaruga.co.uk. Ha ha. I bought 3 @ 200 yen each. I should have bought more, though. I thanked her again for making the soundtrack and received a thankful bow before turning my attention to the next target.
Ack! I thought I took a picture of the soundtrack CD but my camera
wasn't working. I'll do it later! (Edit 2005/01/01 14:15: Okay I gots
the picture now. Good things always come in threes, heh heh heh.)
At least this doujin group was stuck with the other shmup themed stuff. There was another young lady who makes stories related to shmups. She was calling attention to the passerbys with "Kono sakuhin wa shooting no koto desu!" (This stuff is about shooting!) in a dramatic, almost overly James T. Kirk voice mannerism. Well duh, I bought stuff from you last CM and I haven't read it yet. Oh well. I saw the Cave fan stuff but it was story stuff (no pictures) and who plays these games for the story?
