I was so excited when I found Tiger & Bunny DVD vol.1 for US in my post.
Waited for a while, because I’d love to learn English from these “showes”. I need to go to NYC on March but my listening/speaking skill is not far enough.
I watched this anime’s epsodes again and again, now I remember almost of lines of the characters in Japanese!
It makes me much easier to guess what they say in English. XD

And more, of course this DVD has Japanese version. If when I miss Wild Tiger’s Tokyo-accents, I can easily hear that too.
So happy not to borrow that from my nearest DVD-rental-shop again…maybe the shop staff remembers me as crazy fan (yeah it’s true, though).

After that, I went to dining hall for government staff. The place is on the 32nd floor and you can enter there and enjoy lunch at reasonable prices.
(Of course language is Japanese only, and their office is around, please keep calm if you went there.)

The view from the dining hall was really nice, and their Omurice was made one by one. It was interesting experience.

It has an elegant aroma, and a very rich taste.

Finally Domino’s sent me Tiger & Bunny Special Alarm Clock!
I ordered their pizza 3 times to enter this prize. Because the alarm is not ringing bell as usual, but 3 kinds of anime characters’ voice.
