Just to keep you guys in the loop, at the end of this month, inspired in large part by our friend Ragathol's trip a couple of years ago, I'll be travelling to Japan for an extended period. I'll be staying for three months (because that's the maximum amount of time my employer would allow me to be gone), October through December, to attend a Japanese language course in Yokohama.

I'll still have internet access and should be able to post here, but being away from my home computer and resources like Share, etc. there's a good chance this may impact my ability to post translations during that time.

I was originally worried about whether I would still be able to translate Yotsuba while I was gone, but with no new chapters in the past 10 months, it was beginning to look like it wouldn't be an problem after all. But now that it seems Azuma's started things back up again, it may be an issue.

There's also a very small chance my plane may crash into the Pacific Ocean, which would be a more difficult challenge to overcome.

>Kagami Hiiragi Hatsune Miku cosplay Figma

Good choice. Hope you didn't overpay, and be careful when changing hands, the older Figma joints can be fragile.

Huh, the other articles I read also seemed to imply the whole thing under the station was closing down. Glad to hear it's not gone entirely.

I paid 3,000 yen for a used one at Mandarake, but it was listed as "Unopened."
They also had one for 2,500 yen, but there was a defect noted on the label. I couldn't tell what it said though. It had two kanji I didn't recognize, followed by ネジサビ which I think means "Rusted screw."

I figured it 500 yen wasn't that much more to pay for one that was guaranteed to be in good condition.

The same figure was selling new in other stores for about 4,800 yen.
I also thought of getting a Konata Izumi Haruhi Suzumiya cosplay figure just to keep going with the same theme, and also because those were only 1800 yen, even new. I didn't, though.

Really, I just wanted some kind of Miku figure.

I've always imagined you would have nice hands, so I'm glad to now know that you actually do!

Anyway, after following your blog I've wondered what camera you used? It captures natural lighting almost like what how you'd actually see it in person. I could use a camera like that at conventions and such.

  No.229160   Report                

I'm not sure how you can tell how nice my hands are just from that one shot, but okay...

The camera is a Nikon Coolpix S9700.

It seems to have trouble when I take pictures in my room. Either the flash doesn't want to go off and everything looks grey and dark, or the flash reflects blindingly off whatever I'm taking a picture of.

I was really impressed with the night shots at Nagoya though. And it's got a 30X zoom which came in handy at the street performance festival.

  No.229162   Report                

A trick I've used is to hold a piece of paper over the flash to diffuse it a bit. There should be an option to force the flash on.


I thought it was pretty common in the US. Most grocery stores I've seen sell it, at least here in California.

I'd heard of it before I came here, but I don't think I had ever actually seen it anywhere. I could be mistaken though.

Just as a point of interest, the girl with the blue hair I mentioned in this post can be seen in the second bread eating competition video I posted on my blog. She's the one who's last to finally get the bread off the string.
She was dressed much more conservatively for the sports day festival, although interestingly her backpack was the same exact shimmery lamé-like material as her shirt/dress and hat that first day.

As a camera nerd I checked the specs for this camera and I must say it's an underwhelming camera for night and indoor unless you use flash or there's a lot of light source.

It got 1/2.3 sensor.

Sensor is what replaced the film. It gather the lights and turn them into an image. The problem is 1/2.3 sensor is consumer line sensor but still too small to gather light fast (the bigger the sensor the better it is for indoor and nighttime). I prefer 4/3 (Four thirds system) or APS-C sized sensors. They gather light better and better for night and indoor pics.

It got f3.7 maximum aperture.

Another thing we need to check is how big the aperture a camera can go. f3.7 won't cut it. Go for At least f2.8 or better 1.9 (I don't know if compact cameras can reach f1.4 unless you want to pay with an arm and a leg). If the sensor is small but the aperture is large enough it can compensate the small sensor size.

I think it's unfair of me to criticize your camera without recommending you several better alternatives with the same price range, so here you go:

Nikon 1 J1

Pros: Very compact, the 1 inch sensor is good enough for most occasion, the basic set is only $250, interchangeable lens.

Cons: The cheapest version only have 10-30mm lens. If you want zoom then you must spend more to buy a zoom lens.

Canon EOS M

Pros: For $350 you already get an APS-C sensor camera, good enough lens, interchangeable lens.

Cons: Not that compact, the lens can be pretty silly to look at (big and bulky sitting on a compact camera).
