I’m really too tired to really type out much of a post, but in short: –

1.) Loads of people, loads of queues

2.) Plenty more booths and fun stuff to look at, didn’t go MMKCafe though

3.) A LOT more cosplayers, they’re basically everywhere (even in the neighbouring electronics fair)

4.) Ichirou Mizuki: I’M HOME

5.) Shoko-tan: You are 最高!

6.) Ichirou Mizuki makes jokes (*coughmizucough*)

7.) Aniki steals a glance at Shoko-tan’s chest while singing BREAST FIRE

8.) Need to heal my throat; too much shouting during Aniki’s performance

9.) Someone said Aniki is so manly he has 5 penises

p.s. Miku lags

p.p.s. Looking very much forward to Day 2’s concert. Fukuyama and May’n DUET
