Sooo… who else is recovering from a crazy but super awesome Katsucon 2022? I can tell you right now I’m still playing catch up. It probably doesn’t help that I’ve been staying up late being addicted to playing “Breath of the Wild” recently, but eh, I’ll survive (hopefully; if the Lynels don’t kill me!).
Shinzou wo Sasageyo, Minna-san! I’ve been in a bit of a revitalized good mood primarily due to rewatching episodes of the anime 進撃の巨人 (“Shingeki no Kyojin”), so I thought I’d relate an experience I had while living in Tokyo in 2015 called “Attack on Wall Tokyo” as well as another one I had during a trip to Sapporo in 2016 called “Attack on Wall Sapporo”.
This is surprisingly, another one of those “I can’t believe I haven’t written about this sooner” posts. But then again, when you’re in Japan, there’s next to no time, zilch, to really document it other than via photos. As such, 4 years later, let’s talk about concerts in Japan, and specifically, my first concert in Japan.
I was very happy to get the chance to go to the Maryland Renaissance Festival 2019 last weekend with friends. Anna from “Frozen” is my go to for these events!
Very quick overview of the event I attended last week, DC’s Sakura Matsuri, the ending event of the Cherry Blossom Festival held annually in DC in celebration of the the first 2000 Cherry Blossom trees gifted to Washington DC from Tokyo to enhance the growing relations between the two countries.
Recently I decided to treat myself and go see the Kingdom Hearts Symphony Orchestra presented at the Fisher Theater in Detroit, MI! I ended up going with my roomie and we managed to get resale tickets close to the front. Essentially, this kind of ended up being our last big hurrah for Michigan, and what a cool experience to end on!
It’s been a good 2.5 years since I’ve had the chance to go to an X4 concert, in other words, much too long. Why? Because the atmosphere that Kodai, T-Max, Jukiya, and Yuya create with their music, their spirits, and their fans – there’s just something very special about it.
