    I was surprised. Your turn came up really early...



    My turn came at 46:46. But I started interacting with her much earlier in the broadcast when someone (not David) wrote her a message in English which Wasamin struggled to read. (18:45) I commented that I want to send her a message in English too. (21:30) It became a recurring "gag" throughout the broadcast whenever I posted in the chat, and when she signed my CD. She would say she was waiting for my English messages. It happened a few times.

    BTW, she has another Limista event today where she is signing some sort of signboard, and she will be doing another CD signing via Limista on the release date. There are a couple other release event/virtual mini-lives coming too, as well as some sort of lottery giveaway of goods at two CD shops in Ikebukuro and Osaka.

    Wasamin's Limista release day CD sign event...



    This event was a bit longer than the previous CD signing event last week. I herd quite a few names repeated on the back end, which probably means people were making last-minute purchases while the event was still going. (You could make purchases up until around 30 minutes into the event)

    My turn came at 48:15. And as I promised her last week, I wrote her an English message. Well, it was a basic English message, stuff I knew she would understand. She seemed to get a big kick out of it. Actually, there were a few written English messages throughout the event. I'm guessing at least a couple of them were inspired by her invitation last week for people to write in English.

    BTW, Akira debuted at 9th on the Oricon pop singles chart. Hopefully she can maintain that momentum for at least the first couple of days.

    BTW, my packages from Limista arrived last week...

    The autographed covers are not the full inner sleeve, they're just a card to put over the cover. But I guess I would've known that had I been paying close attention to the livestream.
    No matter, they're still cool additions to my autographed Wasamin CDs. I still think it would be cool if they came up with an alternate cover for her to sign, like the special covers for Mujineki and Request Covers

    I've run it through Google Translate (I've not edited it other than to change 'he' to 'she'):

    Iwasa Misaki 2022 Calendar Autograph Event (2021/12/05)

    I was really looking forward to this event. At the same time, I was a bit nervous about it. When I made my purchase the Nagara Group website wouldn't take my credit card for some reason. I opted for the second option, which was to be invoiced my Yamato Transport. According to what I read, I was under the impression I would receive the invoice in a week, and have two weeks to pay it. However, no invoice came. I read my confirmation email more closely, and it described this feature more like a COD, which I found odd. So I went into this not knowing if I had successfully made the purchase or not...

    There were two events, at 13:00 and at 18:00. I opted for the second event. Here are links to both...




    So I was lounging around my house watching TV until I realized I forgot about the event. I quickly turned it on around 50 minutes in. I sent her a greeting, which she acknowledged. (54:00) A couple minutes later I posted a comment in the chat that I liked the calendar photos, to which she responded "Where are you Chris, are you still in Okegawa?" I didn't realize the significance of her comment at the time, and responded that I am indeed still in Okegawa. I watched the rest of the stream and didn't hear my name called, which made me nervous. I would have to re-watch it from the beginning to hear if I really did get an autographed calendar.

    I started the event over, and whadd'ya know, I was the first person called! (around 8:00) Then my heart broke when Wasamin said she missed me at the Cruising Event last week. (Wasamin had a cruise lunch last week, which I did not attend) It's amazing to me that with all the people who were there, she noticed that I wasn't. And now I really feel like a heel because I am missing another event this month, and now wish I wasn't.

    Apparently my not attending her cruising event was enough for her to begin wondering if I had moved back to America, which was her next comment. This must've been why that was the first thing she asked me when she saw me in the chat. Wasamin was worried about me, awwww. :inlove:

    I am looking forward to receiving my calendar, with a Wasa-birthday greeting on my birth month. I'll hang it in the same spot as the 2021 calendar, which is just above my head as I'm typing this. As Wasamin commented on her blog and Twitter, when we hang it she will be monitoring our lives at home, LOL

    Iwasa Misaki Christmas Day Cheki Event!

    Parts One and Two



    For a change of pace, and since it was the weekend, I decided to go with the early event. I limited myself to two cheki, since I wasn't sure what the bonus pics were for buying more than five (they turned out to be random cheki, although some featured her posing with her dogs, Hamu and Chizu) I arrived on time for a change. Actually I was two hours early since I mistakenly thought it was at 13:00.

    Anyway, my turn came up at 1:21;15. I had a small interaction with her earlier when she was talking about coffee. I commented in the chat first with "yay" which she mispronounced, and then the title of Mariah Carey's Christmas song, forgetting that she is horrible at sounding out romaji. I figured she might know it since it's played ad nauseum here. Anyway, I sadly told her that I would be missing her Christmas live the next day, but would hopefully be able to attend her birthday live at P.A.R.M.S. next month.

    A couple of New Year's Wasa-goods updates...

    I meant to post these sooner, but I've had a rough start to the new year, topped by a severe bout of food poisoning that kept me out of action for the better part of a week. Quite the "vacation" eh? Anyway, I received a few cool goodies from Wasamin, which I thought I'd share. First...

    wasa43.jpg wasa44.jpg

    My 2022 Wasamin calendar, signed. Not only did she put a special message on my birth month, which she showed us on the livestream. She also signed the cover. Right now it is hanging just above my computer, and I'll be looking forward to my next birthday. Next up...

    Signed cheki.. These were from her Christmas event which I posted about previously. And finally...

    2022 Wasamin nengajo. I look forward to receiving a New Year postcard from Wasamin every year. Then on New Years Day it slips my mind until I hear the postal carrier drop it in my mail slot early in the morning. It's nice to get a message from Misaki to start the year.

    So on New Year's eve day I planned to purchase a ticket to Wasamin's birthday event since December 31st was the deadline, plus it was my payday. What I wasn't aware of was the post office would be closed not only on Monday the 3rd, but Friday the 31st as well. So technically they should've made the deadline December 30th since the ticket had to be purchased via postal payment. I considered putting it thought on Tuesday and taking my chances. But then the food poisoning thing happened, and that idea sorta went out the window. Oh well.
