The weekend before last I was in Japan for the Kaigai Manga Festa. This was my first time in Tokyo, and my first time at a Japanese convention. I met a lot of cool people, picked up a lot of new comics, and ate a lot of delicious food.
The best part was meeting a number of GearHead fans. One of them brought me a gift- this collector’s box of Dougram models. Have I ever mentioned that I’ve been trying to find a complete set of Dougram mecha for literally decades? This was an amazing gift and I’m glad I didn’t open it on the spot because I might have cried. Thank you so much.
I did well enough at the show that I may be able to justify going back again next year… though I spent enough money in Japan that I may not be able to.
