See this post for the introduction. While going through photos in Lightroom for my recent Sakura-Con 2015 photo blog post, I realized that I actually never finished uploading and writing the rest of my Japan Trip 2014 blog posts… Oops… So here they are, with whatever commentary I can still remember… Better late than never I guess!
On the same day we visited the Art of Gundam exhibition, we explored Nipponbashi and Dotonbori. I had visited both places multiple times in the past, so I didn’t end up taking all that many pictures this time around.
Comic Toranoana + Gamers was open – went in and picked up a bunch of C86 doujinshis early to cut down our expectingly long line waiting times
Since most things were closed, I took a bunch of pictures of random anime-related posters. Here’s one promoting the then-upcoming new Gundam anime series, Gundam G Reconguista (which I highly recommend you NOT watch, cause it’s a total trainwreck of a mecha series)
The Weiβ Schwarz trading card game (aka Waifu Wars: The Card Game) features licensed anime characters and is immensely popular in Japan but never really picked up anywhere else in the world
ChaosTCG is another trading card game from Bushiroad (same producer of Weiβ Schwarz), not sure where the characters are from though (OCs?)
Like with both previous trips, I spent a lot less time than I had hoped at Nipponbashi, though this time it was cause we arrived too early. The rest of my group wanted lunch, so we started heading across the river over to Dotonbori
Dotonbori, the famous restaurant district of Osaka
