I’ll be the first to admit that Ayaya’s 26th year on this planet certainly hasn’t been the best, personally or professionally, but all was not lost. Her Maniac Live event at the Akasaka Blitz (at which the above photo was taken) was absolutely fantastic and proved that she is still as good as she ever was!


 

Happy 26th Aya!

…which means I am too… ><

On the 8th during Berryz Kobo's events at AnimeNEXT the above flyer was distributed, and since I pulled that particular copy directly from UpFrontLink I think we can safely assume it’s official.

I’m pretty torn about this. On one hand I’m absolutely psyched I’ll get a chance to see her live and most likely get an autograph (as seems to be the custom at these events held at anime conventions), but on the other hand I’m a little pissed I have to go all the way to Georgia to do so. Georgia is clear on the other side of the continent compared to where I live, but as luck would have it, still only about 40% as expensive as a trip to Japan.

So, how about, any of you guys going to be heading out there too? The combination of really reasonable airfare, the convenience of an English speaking environment (getting around by myself in Japan is a thought that really does scare me a bit), and the fact that since this event takes place over a weekend I only have to take a few days off work make it an opportunity I can’t pass up.

Also, on the plus side, at least I don’t have to go to New Jersey 😀

UPDATE: Kikka is now officially listed on the Anime Weekend Atlanta guests list. Apparently she will be, “performing live on stage, have multiple autograph sessions, and will be participating in a variety of panels throughout the weekend.” Oh yeah, I’m psyched! 🙂
