Konbanchiwa oTOMOdachi! Genki?! I'm still alive and kicking yo! It's been a while since my last PO, but unfortunately this PO is not about P-sama or NEWS or JE at all. This PO is about my other passion, Evangelion. Gomen ne~! m(_ _)m

Watch Evangelion:2.22 Blue-ray & DVD Promotion Video clip in here

Evangelion Feature 2010 Life Size Construction Plan Questionnaire

I was lucky enough to be able to watch both Evangelion 1.0 and Evangelion 2.0 movies in theatres in Japan before. I was completely blown away!! I believe not every one of you knows what EVA is but I'm sure at least some of you do know or have heard about it. Remember Bandai built a life size Gundam for the Green Project in Odaiba last year and it's being resided in Shizuoka now?? Well, Gainax is having a questionnaire now asking for opinion of whether we want them to build a life size EVA this time!

Olympic Torch Relay

Konbachiwa oTOMOdachi! Genki? I'm still alive and kicking! I haven't been updating my LJ since September! Yeah, I know...I'm just being lazy.

Don't worry watchful21, I still remember that I owe you something. I'll get on to it cuz I'll be on vacation in a few days. Sorry about the delay. m(_ _)m

Olympic Torch Relay

Ok. This PO is totally unrelated to JE. It's about me seeing the Olympic Torch Relay between 6:45am and 7:30am this morning. I can't believe I actually get to see the Olympic Torch for real! YEAH!! ヾ(*≧∇≦)〃

Although I had to get up at 4:45am this morning and stand in the cold for about 45 mins to wait for the torch to arrive, I still think it's worth it! It's a once in a lifetime experience that I'll never forget. ☆-( ^-゚)v

I Saw Odagiri Joe Today!!

キタ━━━━━━(゚∀゚)━━━━━━ !!!!!

You might not be able to tell from looking at this pic but he IS Odagiri Joe!! He's not on the guest list but he came!!! He showed up with Kore-eda Hirokazu (director of Air Doll) to the screening!! Kore-eda Hirokazu came every year to TIFF but he brought ODAGIRI JOE this time!!! Arigatō!!! ヾ(≧∇≦*)〃ヾ(*≧∇≦)〃

BTW, I also saw David Duchovny, Demi Moore, Amber Heard and Ben Hollingsworth today too!

That's all for now! Nite nite ☆-( ^-゚)v

1 Piece Of Koyama Family Info

Konbachiwa oTOMOdachi! Minna Genki?! I know I haven't been updating my LJ lately. In fact, my last PO was on April 9. APRIL 9?! w川・o・川w

I guess I've been doing ok these days. Just ok though. Could have been better. Anyways, I'm not here to complain about my life. Actually, I did something quite amazing several days ago.

Visit To Ryutarō Ramen

Yes yes. I've paid a visit to Ryutarō Ramen! Yatta!!! ヽ(*´∀`)八(´∀`*)ノ

I went there on July 14. I took Odakyū from Shinjuku Station and the train was crowded. However, it didn't take me too long to arrive at Ryutarō and there were just 1 table available. I guess I was lucky. Anyways, I'm sure you've all seen pics of Ryutarō, but still I'll PO a few regardless.

Although I've gone there with my friend, but she has already eaten dinner. Yes, you ask how did this happened?! Actually, I went to see I Come With The Rain by myself before that and she was hungry while waiting for me, so she ate without me. ヾ(_ _*)

In any case, I've ordered chāshūmen and gyōza. Lemme tell ya this. The chāshūmen was HUGE, with shōyū soup base, and lots of big thick slices of chāshū!! (≧∇≦)b
Of course, the gyōza was delicious too! Basically, the ramen at Ryutarō is very different from the ones you can eat in Tokyo city. It really fills you up, the price is reasonable and it tastes good too! ヾ(*≧∇≦)〃

Koya-Mama Told Me Family Info

Koya-mama was cooking inside the kitchen the whole time I was there. There were 2 groups of fans and some local salarymen inside. 1 group (2 girls) were talking very loud the whole time. They were talking with a young guy who works there. They talked about K-chan and 24 Hr TV. They've asked Koya-mama what K-chan will do in 24 Hr TV and Koya-mama told them to ask K-chan by themselves. Since they've been talking non-stop, I though I had no chance to talk with Koya-mama, so I asked the young guy for the bill. Of course I was prepared to go there and I brought cellphone straps and a Toronto guide book in Japanese along. I though most Japanese knows US, but Canada is not a popular place for them to visit, so that's why I brought along a guide book about my city. I paid for my bill and I gave the young guy the stuff I brought and asked him to give it to Koyama-san for me. He quickly gave it to Koya-mama and mama came out to see me!! Kya~~~! キタ━━━━━━(゚∀゚)━━━━━━ !!!!!

She asked me if I was from Toronto and I said yes. To my surprise, she said "Obā ga Toronto ni sunderu."

WHAT?! (゚ロ゚屮)屮

She basically told me that grandma lives in Toronto!! She also said that grandma has been living in Toronto for a very long time now!!! OMG?! I couldn't believe it!!! (^人^) Can you imagine how happy I was?! I then told her I've been listening to K-chan NEWS every week (thanks to those of you who has been sharing the files on LJ). She asked me how, and so I told her I've been listening to it on the net. I really wanted to shake hands with her, but since I was sweaty and smelly (it was hot in Japan), so I gave up on that. I bid her farewell and I left. I should have talked to her more, but I was too excited when she told me where grandma lives. Oh well, I guess I'll have to visit Ryutarō again on my next trip to Japan yo! ☆-( ^-゚)v

PS: I came back from my trip and I've looked up the name Koyama in the local Yellow Page. Guess what?! There are 10 Koyama families in Toronto!! I wonder which one is K-chan's grandma deshō...

Happy Bath Day To You P-sama!

Konbachiwa oTOMOdachi! Let's open the champagne!! キタ━━━━━━(゚∀゚)━━━━━━ !!!!!


Konbachiwa oTOMOdachi! This is my 2nd PO for today. It's very rare that I'll do 2 POs in a day, but I guess I'm going to do it just for today!

(Note) By the way, the kanji of "Koi yo" is not "濃いよ"

"Um, Niigata" (I'm a Albirex Niigata supporter)

Yes, there is


ABO Type A

It's because Koi no ABOAB doesn't look and sound too good?

Konbachiwa oTOMOdachi! I just came back from watching a Kabuki Cinema called "Nezumi, The Japanese Robin Hood". It was AWESOME!!! It was a MASTERPIECE!!! Best of all, it was funny!!! (≧∇≦)b

I really enjoyed the show very much. There will be 2 more Kabuki Cinema shows on this Saturday. My Japanese friend has invited me to see the 2 shows on Saturday, but each show cost $23 to watch. Quite expensive actually, but I think it's worth the money. You see, they've (as in Shochiku) recorded the shows live on stage in HQ, then show it at the movie theatres outside Japan. I'm still thinking whether I should go on Saturday or not. What should I do??? (*^_^*)

Konbachiwa oTOMOdachi! I was going to upload all the RESCUE bansen for today, but somehow the application I've been using to cut the clips is not working since a few days ago. I've tried it today and it's still not working. I've actually tried to use 3 different apps, but I couldn't get anything to work. Gomen ne Minna. m(_ _)m

So far I think the best and longest bansen today was Saka Sacas. Also, Channel Rock was good too! Make sure you watch these 2 bansen yo! o(^▽^)o


Konbachiwa oTOMOdachi! Guess what?!

I've PASSED!!!
