So, it’s been a while since I’ve done a “walk around and have fun” trip to Osaka and this time I got to meet an old school buddy from my hometown!
The above is a picture of some of the loot acquired on this trip.
The Anime Chikas are by an animator named Yasuomi Umetsu, the creator of Kite and Mezzo. The guy has a really neat since of style so I was interested in picking up the magazine this came with (to the right).
The three small objects all the way on the bottom right are (more) BiC pens (the type recommended by my buddy Dave Piper), some incense from a hippy store, and the business card of this cool new videogame bar that just opened up last month.
On the top left is a 9x9 and 13x13 soft mat go board. Need to get some cheap stones to go with my cheap boards (^_^)
Finally, on the top right is the 1st of the 2 collect volumes of サルでも描けるまんが教室。I’m reading “Even a Monkey Can Draw Manga” in English at the moment and there are some major issues with translation as well as reproductions. That’s why I thought it would be cool to purchase the Japanese version.
Well, that’s about it… Might be going back in 2 weeks, but probably not for treasure.
