Advice for a Hong Kong trip?

I'll probably be going with a couple friends in mid/late March, including one who is from China, which should help with the language/culture part. But it seems they're going elsewhere after the first day and I'm not sure what there is to do by oneself, since I'd want to stay for at least a couple more days.

all those epic feels ;_;

Possibly. I mean, I've done lots of walking (6-10 hours a day in some cases), but the amount of luggage I've be carrying while riding would no doubt make things more physically demanding.

It's a more complicated and arguably more developed narrative but kinda the charm of μ's story was that it was simple and easy to relate to. They worked really really hard as the underdogs and achieved this rags to riches fairy tale - both in the anime and in reality. It's also a very "idol" like narrative, a very cliche inspirational and motivational story for the audience, you can achieve your dreams if you try hard enough.

Meanwhile all this indecision and showing how hard things are in Sunshine kind of puts the franchise on a different direction, I guess you just don't get a sense of where they are heading in the long term? The goal of winning Love Live seems almost an impossibility with how they've set it up.

And yeah the Kotori drama end of s1 seemed worse because it kind of came from nowhere and suddenly we got bombarded with this heavy drama and was totally out of place with the rest of the season, the compensation is that it only lasted 2 episodes.

The μ's seiyuu are all so charismatic, don't really find that with the Aqour seiyuu although they are still young and haven't had much experience so that'd develop with time.

Maybe I'm just biased towards μ's but I thought the start of Aqours anime was nice as they got introduced - although the 3rd years drama lasted way too long - but then after that it kind of went down hill. All the referencing to the first anime hurt more than it helped in the end too, there was just way too much of it. We get character development but we don't really get a sense of a goal or a dream they are heading towards.

Burd's the cutest - Ucchi is great too. I miss μ's, can't really get into Sunshine...

Happy new year.

Yup. I'm honestly curious how people are supposed to make real friends here, because the university environment isn't really that.

He still refuses to admit that Nico is best, though.
Veronin Oct 1, 2016 10:52 PM
That's the price of a figure, yo. Priorities!

I might have to buy one so that I can use Line and Facebook on the go, though.
Veronin Sep 29, 2016 11:17 AM
Have fun! It's a super cool place. :P

Nah. I don't know how I'd get a phone account going when I'm here less than a year. I don't even have proper internet, for that matter.....

I went to a supermarket (Santoku), and you're totally right that things there are significantly cheaper than at konbini. You can buy a huge 2 litre bottle of milk tea for like 160 yen, for example, whereas you get maybe a third of that for the same price at Seven Eleven.

Oh yeah, I went to Shibuya for the first time last night. It was pretty busy! You have to stick like glue to anyone you're with since you can easily get lost in the sea of people. It seemed kind of tame and family-friendly, though, since my image of Shibuya was that it was kinda seedy and filled with hostess clubs and yakuza and such.
Veronin Sep 13, 2016 6:35 AM
I'd put that at a 15 minute walk? My dorm is south of that, right by the library. I'd probably shop at supermarkets more often if I knew how to cook anything, although, admittedly, those big-ass apples they sell for 100yen each are pretty good.

If you're livin' on the low in Tokyo, Matsuya is like a miracle. Cheap (500-600yen), filling (a large can fill you up for about the entire day), and delicious to boot, especially their bibin bowl. They also give you free miso soup if you eat in the shop. Oh, and it's salaryman approved! Matsuya to me is like the food equivalent of Nico!

Can you really park bicycles that easily in Japan? I know they almost never get stolen since the crime rate is super low, but I think looking for places to stop and dealing with traffic would make it stressful for poor little Veronin.

I'd like to visit Hong Kong, Taiwan or South Korea some day, but it's hard to take myself away from Japan at this point.
Veronin Sep 12, 2016 7:51 AM
Are these late-night sales in Seven Eleven and FamilyMart as well? I don't think I've found a big supermarket yet because I'm lazy and Matsuya/Seven Eleven are only about a three minute walk away.... ;_;

Bikes? What nonsense is this? I just take the train everywhere because it's super easy with the Suica card. Very cheap, too, as going to Akihabara and back is only about 320yen total. I'd be going there every second day if I could, but now I must wait a week or two for my student funding to come before I can browse the pornos and meet my meidos again!

How often do you visit Japan?
Veronin Sep 11, 2016 4:50 AM
Thigh highs + skirt is heaven.

I spent 3400 yen on some light novels and manga, another 1200 or so for the maid cafe business, and that was with serious self-restraint! I did notice a whole lot of Love Live and Love Live related merch/figures, though. I was about to buy a Ruby plushy but the darn thing was 2700 yen! I also wanted to try one of the arcade machines in the big Sega buildings, but the amount of tobacco in there was just too much...

Milk tea is really nice, but Pocari Sweat is my go-to choice for vending machine beverages. For food I've mainly been going to Matsuya or buying bentos and sushis and such at the local Seven Elevens. Cheap, but still yummy.
Veronin Sep 11, 2016 3:56 AM
You're acting like there's any choice aside from Ruby!

I did a full tour of Akihabara today for the first time, and somehow ended up in a maid cafe with a cute twintailed girl. There were also eroge shops where porn was just blasting from the speakers and on a bunch of monitors. Oh yeah, and there was a sex shop with... *ahem*, 'self-pleasure' toys based on prepubescent anime characters.

Akihabara is a weird place......
