So I think I may have finally secured my group of friends. I tend to like to be a part of a smaller group within a group, either as a couple or a few closer (usually female) friends, and I think I've finally figured out who my smaller group is! And it's a trio! I love trios. :D
Jessi, Niko, and I hung out pretty much all day yesterday. I think they may be my favorite people on the trip. I mean, I love everyone, but they are both pretty awesome. We went with everyone to Kichijouji and ate sushi, then came back here and watched Gurren Lagann! I had given it to Jessi a few days ago and she burned through the first half of the series super fast (it's hard not to), and we squeed so much over it on the train that Niko almost refused to watch it because he was afraid either we would ruin it with squeeage or that it was actually a girl anime in disguise. But, no, he loved it and is going to finish at least the first half so we can all go see the movie and experience the epicness of TTGL on the big screen. Omg.
After this awesomeness we went to Ikebukuro and went to Animate, had dinner, and then ice cream. It was so very fun. Although, Jessi and I felt like such lame gaijin otaku (foreign anime nerds) cuz she was in a Ninja t-shirt and wearing a backpack and I was wearing my kitty ear sweater. Yeah. And then Niko and I cemented our gaijin otaku status by actually doing caramell dansen in the store. Here is what caramell dansen is
and the reason it is kind of horrible that we did it is that it is a ridiculous internet thing that only lame anime nerds do. Like, at AX, Joel literally pretended not to know me every time I would start dancing to it. And this happened frequently because anime nerds love to carry boom boxes and randomly play music at cons. Which is fun...but also so geeky it kind of hurts.
Anyway, it was a really nice day. And we hung out all today, too. It makes me happy to be part of a trio again. I haven't been part of a trio in too long. :)
