Welcome to the start of another week ^_^
For those of you with Monday blues, fear not, there will be some nice cards to brighten your day. Yesterday was a different story though, with temperatures dropping quite a bit... to the point that we saw some snow wafting through the air in Akihabara!
Didn't last very long and it soon ended... kinda seemed odd as today was bright and sunny... oh well, let's move on to the cards for today:
“Say, do you know what a 'Railgun' is?”

Started playing spot the billboards after the company started airing animations like Milky Holmes and Vanguard. However, most of them were spotted as I was travelling on the train so no way to take any photos Xp
This one was found while I was stationary:
Do try to spot those banners/billboards if you are taking the trains in Tokyo. You will be surprised how many there are XD
It's the end of the week and time for a few double features!
For those of you who missed the Comiket releases the last time, 2 of the supply sets: Idolm@ster 2 and Index&Railgun will be on sale this weekend. Let's not forget Haruhi Extra Booster and Angel Beats Trading Card Collection! XD
Whew, sure is a lot for this weekend. Before that, let's get today's intros out of the way:

Let's see... next product coming up would probably be the Tales of Graces f Booster packs for VS next weekend. After introducing so many Sophie cards lately, even I feel like forming a Sophie deck XD
Join me, anyone?
Right, KeroKero Ace March 2011 issue was released yesterday. Have you gotten your copy yet?
As a recap, the issue comes with a special supplement: 2 half decks to learn Cardfight!! Vanguard! with XD
Nothing complicated, just some basic cards to learn the rules of the game. Of course, there are special Flash Deck only cards as well! Some of the art will also be different from the actual Trial Deck and Booster Pack release later in February and March.
Let's take a look at today's cards first:

There was also an English article recently on Vanguard on the Asahi.com Newspaper site:http://www.asahi.com/english/
Have you tried the game for yourself yet?
The weather is as cold as ever in Tokyo, but there is no sign of snow anywhere... It's a good thing as the temperature is just right for strolling around the various shopping areas XD
For me, Ikebukuro is still a great place to visit as there are exhibitions, cinemas and various other interesting things to look at. During a visit, I spotted a sign with what I think was a Malay word...
More on that later, first let's take a look at today's fare:
Winter gift, Index インデックス from 「とある魔術の禁書目録II」

“Let's start! The final party, that is! Last move, Calamity Rondo!!”

Wyvern Strike, Tejas ワイバーンストライク テージャス
“I, ninja Yamazaki, will protect you with my life”
Realistic acting? 山崎蒸 from 「薄桜鬼 随想録」
Here's what I saw:
In Malay, the word 'bagus' means 'good'... I wonder if the shop knows...
'Good' billiards and darts, anyone?? XD
As promised, we will be taking a look at the Pedestrian Paradise which I visited last Sunday at Akihabara.
Quick history: the roads in Akihabara were normally blocked on Sundays and street performers, cosplayers used to flood the streets. However, due to an unfortunate incident in 2008, the tradition was suspended indefinitely for various reasons.
Photo coming up after the usual for today:
“Hey, what did you just say”

It was a nostalgic sight indeed as I last experienced Pedestrian Paradise during a trip to Japan back in 2005.
There were a lot of cameras from the press covering the story that day
There will be more volunteers looking after the crowds, and some shops even had sales to commemorate the event XD
Street performers are no longer allowed, but cosplayers took to the streets as if the blank of 2 years never happened... Xp
