Sorry for not keeping this updated... I forgot my account password... :P

The last lessons for this year are coming up... (7:30-8:45pm) Monday, June 29 - Tuesday, June 30 & Wednesday, July 1.
I'll be there practically all day Saturday... Working on a "Period" Cosplay project... ???  Anyone else going to be in attendance, cosplay or not?  If so, stop by... say hi... and enjoy the free entertainment at the festival.


There will be a few cosplayers there both days. Myself included. Not to dance, just to chill out:D


I and a bunch of others from No-Name Anime plan to have dinner at the festival and then watch the Odori on Saturday night. has a schedule.


I think I will be there both days.  No idea what I'll be wearing.

Thank you all for your support of San Jose Nihonmachi and its cultural events...

My "Period" cosplay project fell though because I couldn't get official permission from the festival's main chairperson to do it... ???... but I stated to them that I would attend in costume regardless...  I'll be there for photos, visitor assistance, unhappy-children and anything else I see needing attending to.

Note: It'll be warm this weekend so Cosplay with care and let's all have fun.


Saturday, at Obon, If you saw a Hinata Shippuden, with a Tenten(pre-shippuden) and a Kiba(Pre-shippuden) That was m groupxD We'll be back tomorrow. though Costume wise were still not sure:]


I'll try again tomorrow. My neck hurts today and I hope it heals soon.
Also a Proud Fanime Con Attendee since 1998!
Yay, Haruko.
