As Fanfare of Adolescence a collaboration anime project of Aniplex and Japan Racing Association (JRA), we’ll see a lot of models coming from JRA’s facilities around Kanto region.Continue reading “Anime Pilgrimage #15: Fanfare of Adolescence”
It’s been a while since my last pilgrimage (last time was 2019, I think). Now that I finally get into my zone, I started taking a walk for Jujutsu Kaisen in which most of the locations were in Tokyo areas. Locations were pinpointed thanks to @kimamanidance and @flyingbird1124.Continue reading “Anime Pilgrimage #13: Jujutsu Kaisen”
This may be overdue but I’ll share to you my first and best experience I had with JO1 as a JAM last year. It was quite surreal that I was able to follow a group so deeply unlike to my previous groups. I was a Kpop fan for 8 years and one group I ult-ed before JO1 was Wanna One. However for Wanna One, I didn’t do to the extent on following their activities and collecting all their stuff as what I’m currently doing for JO1.
One possible reason why I fall deeply on JO1’s swamp is probably because I got connected with them too fast and too early. Since I understand a bit of Japanese and currently working in Tokyo, the access in getting all the contents and goods were too convenient. The probability on meeting them is too high and it somewhat motivates me to work hard and go to concerts or live events to see them. However due to the current situation, it’s regretful that I only got to see them online.
Anyways, I’m going to write in blog was my 推し活 (oshikatsu, stanning activity) I did last year. This isn’t as detailed since it happened way back that my memory could retrieved most of them. I only get to relive them after looking at my past tweets and IG archives.Continue reading “A Year with JO1: JAM Diary”
The first time I did a pilgrimage for Bungou Stray Dogs, it was only a casual pilgrimage with a friend with only a faint memory from the first season. My friend had already followed to the latest updates of the series therefore I can’t keep up the excitement similar as hers when walking around the Yokohama. But due to that walk, I gave myself a chance to watch the anime and became my most favorite series of all time.Continue reading “Anime Pilgrimage #3: Bungou Stray Dogs”
There will be instances where the anime setting isn’t exactly looked like on the actual location due to lack of aesthetic or has a need to fit in on a certain scene. As for Bungou Stray Dogs, some of its settings were based from multiple sites around Yokohama or even outside the main stage. After a thorough research and multiple visits, I was able to breakdown the possible model on each of the notable locations from the series. *All of the screenshots were taken from Google Maps.Continue reading “Location Analysis: Bungou Stray Dogs”
