Woke up on my own at 7:25 this morning, 2 minutes before my alarm was set to go off, only to realize my alarm was not even on and HOLY CRAP I would've been so in trouble if it hadn't >_> Because I had to be at Gain at 9 AM to Be a Fan :D
Luckily, though, today was going to be a pretty good day, all told, and I woke up on time, showered, and was on my way to Shibuya. Wound up being the first one there, arriving literally seconds before a big group of girls rounded the corner behind me :DDDD Tenchou passed out numbers to everyone, and we all dispersed--after I mentioned to Tenchou that my dad was coming in and...would it be okay to bring him by and introduce him to Tenchou. Verdict? A big hellyeeessss XD
Had to kill 3 hours before I could come back to pick up the shirts, so I went back to my apartment and bummed around. At noon, Tenchou was deprived of two shirts, and I had another 2 hours to kill! hughes_maes
and I met at Kokuritsukyougijou station at 2 PM to head to Seinenkan and line up for toujitsuken. Unfortunately, while there were only 10 or so girls there when we arrived, by the time they passed out numbers, there were about 150 >_> Suffice to say we did NOT get any of the 30 tickets they had. WHAT THE FUCK. 30 TICKETS? This is TENIMYU. And they wonder why people buy and sell these tickets online.
But, not to be daunted, we decided we'd try again in the next few days (well, Paula would XD Unfortunately I don't get out of work until 5 PM--when toujitsuken go on sale--so I can't try) and went to sing away our sorrows in Asakusa where there was a Big Echo and a Coco's nearby :D
After 2 hours of singing, we'd worked up quite a hunger, and dug into some tasty curry. We were behind some kind of a barrier in a booth, and a guy came in to get a to-go order. Swear on the graves of my ancestors he sounded like Miki Shinichirou. Freaky XD
We decided to walk back to Kuramae, since it was a straight shot from there to my apartment, and stopped in at Family Mart on the way. I was the only one of our group who hadn't picked up my DL6th tickets yet (we actually got REALLY lucky with the lottery!!) and, curious to see where the seats were, I went in and printed out my tickets.
They weren't arena seats, so I wasn't sure just how good they were. However, upon closer examination, I thought the seat numbers looked familiar. Curious, we called up imma_holiday
, who'd picked her own up earlier that day.
I got my 3 seats in 34, 35, and 36. Hers? Exact same block, exact same floor, exact same row: 37, 38, 39.
WE SOMEHOW MANAGED, COMPLETELY COINCIDENTALLY, TO GET 6 TICKETS IN A ROW. This means through some otherworldly act our entire group will be sitting together!! OMG YAY. And even better, there is a 50/50 chance that these are actually REALLY good seats (as in, in the stands by the stage), but we won't know until we actually get INSIDE the theater XD
Speaking of which, I did not realize Tokyo Taiikukan was right by Nihon Seinenkan (where TeniMyu is right now)!! I snapped some shots of it on the way back the the station XD 待ってろよ～東京体育館!!
Gaijin luck ROCKS HARD.ETA:
I have had all of 2 lines from the Shitenhouji school song stuck in my head ALL DAY but I don't have the track to relieve myself of this melody. Does anyone care to share it with me and put me out of my misery? ;_;
