Me and My Room on TV テレビ出演!

Tomorrow night, Wednesday, I will be on Japanese TV. If you have time to watch, it will be on channel 4 (Nihon Terebi) 10pm. =)

The picture above is from another TV interview with Fuji TV about Women's Soccer.

The show is called Bombii Gaaru(ボンビーガール). It's about people and their rooms.

They will look around in my room and ask about the things they find...

This hat might be one of the things they notice. :)

If somebody can find it and link to it on YouTube it would be much appreciated!

Street Snap of the Day #39

In front of Purikura Mekka at the street Senta-Gai in Shibuya.

This style is called "Center Guy". Maybe because they're "guys" that hang out on "Senta-Gai"?

Outfit from Alba Rosa, which is characteristic for Center Guys. They're pretty mind-blowing to see.

Kayo Police かよぽりす

The Street Fighter producer and many of the best players in the world were at Tokyo Game Show last weekend. One of them is the girl in this pictures.

Or I thought it was a girl. Then my friend told me it's the Japanese model and TV-personality Kayo Satoh called Kayo Police, who in September announced that she had been born as a male.

Kayo claims she haven't had any surgery done, and once beat the world champion Daigo.

Kayo in Japanese TV:


Typhoon in Tokyo

We didn't have school today because of the Typhoon in Tokyo. When it was over there were trashed umbrellas all over the streets.

Some bikes fell over outside Don Kihote as well.

Firetrack on alert. Hopefully there were no big accidents, tomorrow it's supposed to be over.

Tokyo Game Show Cosplay

This weekend I've been to Tokyo Game Show and seen dozens of fantasy characters like this! =)

Thanks to Rodrigo from my school who works at the Spanish gaming site Vida Extra I got a Press Pass. Thank you! ^^

Many say that Tokyo Game Show are becoming less about actual gaming...

...and more about the Cosplay around it.

Apparently the light circumstances between the showcase halls is close to perfect, which has made it one of the biggest Cosplay scenes.

Halo and Assasin's Creed Cosplayers from overseas in the line for TGS(Tokyo Game Show) on Saturday.

When I were taking photos of them this nice blog reader Estefania from San Diego came up to me. Such a fun surprise! ^^

She was one of the 83.000 people that came on Saturday to check out PS Vita and all the new games.

Not to mention the amazing Cosplay again. They must have put so much effort into their costumes and style!

This guy even managed to become the Evangelion Mecha I had on my shirt this day! ^^

Pink fur overload!

If you know what game/animé some of the characters are from, you're more than welcome to comment about it!

A lot of Cosplay from Monster Hunter.

A photo of me holding a pig together with two other Monster Hunter characters ended up here at the big gaming site Kotaku.com.

I think every friend I've met since then has told me that. Thanks! =)


Chocobo from Final Fantasy.

The vocaloid Hatsune Miku.

There's so much people taking photos of the cosplayers... They must feel like celebrities for a day.

It's very important for them to pose correctly and look good on every picture taken of them.

When I asked this girl about a photo while she was walking around, she first had to find a good spot and have her items ready. She had bought the gaming console Neo Geo because her character got it.

It's still extremley humid in Tokyo so it must be tough trying to look perfect in those hot suits.

Sometimes you need to take a break and chill out with your cell phone.

Cosplay can be really fun and playful...

But there's also a scary side to it. :/

No, I'm not referring to these happy monsters...

...or this guy with a bag over his head. ;)

What's scary is how sexistic it can be.

The less clothes a girl has the longer the lines is to take photos of her.

Sadly girls are often looked upon as objects in the Japanese entertainment industry.

Another example of that is the "Booth Babes" that's supposed to bring hype to the games.

Some companies went so far that they had pole dancers next to their games...

Anyhow there were more innocently dressed girls there as well.

Cool half-Persian half-Japanese girl.

More about Tokyo Game Show later! =)

Street Snap of the Day #38

Saw these punksters in Shin-Okubo, Korea Town.

Pretty extreme style!

There's a lot of people with Punk-style hanging around in Korea Town for some reason. Once in a while you see this guy as well.
