I said yesterday was fun, well today was incredible. First we had to be there for this cosplay thing and the boy and Domi took fifth place. I think they got like a $200 gift certificate. They looked so good in their costumes but Domi said she froze her ass off. Well, the shorts were about as short as can be without being naked and the top did not cover much. I will agree on the cold part, there was a nice breeze this morning and the skirt Chris got me was so tight I had go without. Not that it mattered, I could not bend over if I tried. Sam said my outfit looked great but after two hours of sucking in my stomach I raced to a restroom to change into something that was not so tight. Chris got some kind of ribbon for his outfit. But, he did not get into the main competition. After everyone got changed, we had lunch at the place nearby and then came back for the concerts. There were eight musical acts and all of them were great.
The first band was the one that Sam and I saw on Friday and they were just as good. I did not understand a single word, but the music was easy to dance too and the crowd went wild with the glow sticks. The next bands were local bands who play J-Pop and they had their own fan sections and everything. They did some songs in French and then some in Japanese. Still did not understand much of the lyrics, but the music was great. The headline band, I think their name is Flow and they put on a super show. I guess they are pretty famous because they opened with one song and everyone in the audience sang along with them even though it was in Japanese. Even Domi and the boy knew the words. Their encore was another song that everyone knew and while it was playing their was a anime show playing behind them. People were jumping all over the place and I have never seen a show like this where the audience was louder than the band.
After the encore, the band was handing out discs of the two songs that got everyone all fired up. Chris had to have one and then had Domi get one for Paula and I had to get one for Pointy. We spent some more money on action figures, Blu-Rays and Chris got some autographs and had about ten pictures of him taken with actors and actresses. Just to let you know how small this world is, the two girls who we met in Japan who were voice actresses were there and they spotted us and came up and hugged both of us. The boy's jaw dropped because he knew who these girls were, I guess they had some hit records in Japan but were here only to promote a new cartoon they are starring in. We kind of felt like big shots and even Sam and Brogdan said as much. Tonight, there were some Japanese chefs at the hall making all kinds of food. Yeah, it was expensive, but wow was it good.
We closed the place again and Chris took everyone for coffee and dessert at a diner near the hall where the college kids hang out. Great coffee and even better desserts. Chris and I shared a chocolate/raspberry cake thing was really really good. Tomorrow is kid's day but we are going because there will be some more bands and if the weather is good an outside concert with the big name bands.
Right now, Chris is watching a anime on Cartoon Network that takes place in Brazil. Or that is what he is telling me. Domi is sleeping on him, she was really worn out and the boy is too, but he went to bed while Domi wanted to watch some shows. They have to go home tomorrow at 2, so we will have to leave the place early. Domi is just going to get the Pokemon stuff, so we will be there when they open at 8. Chris just picked up Domi, she does not weigh much and took her to bed. She called him dad as he was taking her down the hallway. Every girl who shows up at our door calls him papa or dad after a few minutes. It is funny, even Pointy's classmates from college call him papa. I think he eats it up. Wow, this show is not like any cartoon I have ever seen, it is this girl and I think her mom who are rowing down the Amazon and they fight like cats and dogs. The girl just stomped on her mom's foot and ran away after calling her mom a whore. See, not you usual Bugs Bunny. I see now, the girl is 10 and her mom was in prison since she was a baby and then the mom escaped and kidnapped the girl. They both have the same tattoo on their belly and the girl had a pretty abusive stay at a foster parent, something about a priest raping her when she was 8 so it is not something for kids. I think I may watch this one. Well, I am going to bed, we have to be up early for some more spending like Americans. Chris is putting his new figures in one of his ten cabinet things. He may need to buy more because he is running out of space. Way too late for all of the walking and dancing we did.
