The Fellowship is down to 4 members
In my last post about my Japan trip, I mentioned that it will be 5 of us, including myself. Well due to some unforeseen circumstances, a comrade has fallen from the Fellowship and now won’t be joining us. Most unfortunate, but certain issues were raised, which won’t be mentioned here, but he still wants to come to Japan. So perhaps he may still join us, but not for a the full month. I hope so because the more people at Comiket, the better, lol.
So what does this mean for me? It just means that I have to fork out extra money to cover the extra cost for accommodation but thankfully it’s not too much and won’t break the bank. But I suppose the benefit of there only being 4 of us now, my plans to hire a car may come to fruition. Still plan on hiring an RX-8 but it’s only a 4 seater, so with only 4 of us, it makes it perfect.
In other news, as many of you are aware, Animelo Summer Live 2008 is also on at the end of my trip. Having made an enquiry with my travel agent, he has agreed to help us in acquiring tickets. Most unfortunate that I can only attend the Saturday concert, but at least I can still goto Chara Hobby on the Sunday. For those who are going to be in Japan during the concert and want to attend but have no way of acquiring tickets themselves, ask your travel agent as they may be able to help. Writers of seiyuu3 have also opted to help out those who can’t acquire tickets as well.
With only a meer 10 weeks till EPIC trip, I’ve cut down on spending and preorders over the past few months with April being the last of a HUGE splurge. Now my HLJ preorder list is only a small 5 items.
Seriously, my preorder list has not reached 5 items in 3 years. It has always been a moderate 7-12 items so you can see how much I’m holding back on the spending. But with Supanova Sydney coming up next month, as well as payment for the JR pass and travel insurance still to come, I pray that I can still reach my goal of taking $7000 AUD to last me the month in Japan.
Meeting up with people, so far I have Rin of Koi Aichaku, and ron~ of Otadesho who I plan to meet up in Japan. So as a friendly reminder if you want to meet up, send an email to adun[AT]moemoerabu[DOT]net and let me know when you’ll be in Japan.
