There's this kind of regretful feeling in me which keeps blaming myself for not liking BL and therefore becoming aware of Comiket sooner. Had I done all of the above much earlier, say, the year I went to Japan for the first time, then this winter Comiket could be my 7th! And even if I had to leave Japan for good I would NOT be feeling this down because hell, I'd have been to Comiket for a good 7 times. But the reality is not like that. That was my last Comiket, maybe.
But then again, going to Tokyo twice a year for 4 years would have been hard to reason for-- in front of my parents. They can't know I'm going there to buy some homoerotic stuff! I think in their eyes I've always been a perfect daughter. And while I believe it's not right of them to expect me to be a perfect person, I know they do.
I can't even begin to imagine how my mom would react if she were to look at all Hidoku Shinaide comic books and doujinshi that I have.
Today I wondered too, if there's ever a point in buying a doujinshi. I might come to get tired of them as time passes by. But then I laughed it off-- it's useless trying to think about it. I'm stupid after all... Anyway I got another doujinshi from Nekota-sensei. I'm so lucky out of 4 new works she released for the last 3 Comikets, THREE of them are about Maya and Nemugasa, my favorite pair she's ever made!
I always only buy her doujinshi... so I'm really feeling contended right now :-) I bought a rough sketchbook from her, too.
Being constantly aware that this might be my last Comiket, I'd wanted to ask for her sign (again). But then I did not. Haha Dunno why...all the courage I had had a year ago didn't come out today; probably because now I know she discourages people from asking for her sign. So last year was just pure luck born from my lacking of such knowledge.
I arrived at Big Sight at 09:40ish but because it was raining the line moved teribbly slow! I did cut the line a few times but still I got to Sensei's booth too late to get a brief-shaped phone screen cleaner bonus!!! S H I T
Ohhhhh Now that I'm reminded of that loss I feel angry again. Damn. Damn myself for not going to Comiket 15-30 minutes sooner!!!!!!!!!! AARGH!! Sigh.
Moving on, K last episode was aired last Friday. I'm now part of Love Scanlation that scanlates Karneval. Sadly, earlier today I saw NO Karneval cosplayer and ONLY Mikoto and Kusanagi cosplayers. Well. There was nothing much to see... I got a few new mangaka names whose works caught my eyes but really, that was it.
I went to Animate Ikebukuro yesterday and each floor there holds an exhibition for specific anime / manga title. The sixth floor is for K. Not bad at all, the exhibition is.
Now I'm going to hunt for some Karneval drama CD. I got a book card unused so I might as well use the little money it has. That's all for now.
