Anyone else want to eat a choco corone after watching Lucky☆Star? Been looking for them in Japanese grocery stores and bakeries but figures that it took a trip to Tokyo to finally get my hands on one ^^;
Yes, I’m sure there probably is somewhere I can get them in the states, but I failed at finding it. Though strangely enough, I found this choco corone from Andersen bakery (was at Tokyu Hands), the same bakery they have at the Japantown in San Francisco.
Was pretty tasty, though nothing special ^^; Some bread and chocolate filling. Not sure how Konata sustained herself on ’em ^^;
Picked up a bunch of other sweets from the bakery…
So many deserts all over this city. You may already be familiar with the fact that department stores here have a basement floor grocery/food court… but it always feels like half of the area is devoted to cakes, cookies or whatever other treats.
So far two days have passed and I’ve spent over half the time in Akihabara ^^; No heavy purchasing yet, but already some wallet damage.
Decided to get some CDs today, pictured above. The Code Geass Complete Best is a compilation of all the OP and ED songs from the series (both seasons), along with a DVD containing creditless versions. Even came with a set of post cards and picture/story books. I’ll have to go into more detail once I get back…
The other CDs were a completely random find – dance mixes of tons of anime/eroge songs! I love ’em and will be looking for the other CDs in the series later. Some of the tracks on them include remixes of 悠久の翼 (yuukyuu no tsubasa, ef), Still I love you (school days), I Bless Thy Life (Angelos Armas), 沙耶の唄 (saya no uta), and Find the blue (CHAOS;HEAD). Will try to post some clips later…
Also made the rounds to Harajuku and Shibuya…
Always fun to see all the madness.
And don’t forget some crepes :P Gads, there’s a crepe shop like every 15 feet in harajuku ^^;
Alas, taking a short break from Akiba to see Yokohama and Kamakura over the next two days, but after that, the madness will continue ^^
If you have a sharp eye you may have noticed some manga purchases from the receipt on the first pics… more stuff I’ll have to go into later :P
