FESTIVAL and GLB vol. 57
I know you're all eager for GLB vol. 57 scans, but first things first! I'm going to make you all be my hostages and listen to my festival stories first!!ψ(`∇´)ψ
(of course I'm fully aware you could just easily scroll down and view the scans, but maybe a few kind souls will also take the time to hear about the festival!!)

Every year, as I've posted on this blog several times in the past, is a giant festival where I live!!
Its filled with food and entertainment, so its a lot of fun! However, its extremely crowded, so usually I go just for the food and then return to my apartment...
This year however, I thought it would be fun to do something a little different.

I decided to make a video of it!

This is something new I'm trying out for the first time...
Actually, is first time the right word?? Maybe some of you who have known me for many years are aware that I made a Mana hair tutorial video a long time ago that gained a lot of views! I was really shocked!
But since then, I've hardly made anything with interesting content, let alone speaking in a video. So this feels entirely new for me.
Its still a little scary for me because I really hate hearing my own voice and I'm extremely shy so I'm still a bit uncomfortable, but my hope is over time I'll get better and better at it...

I'm trying this for several reasons, perhaps most importantly because this year mark's the 10th year since the beginning of my website, Mana-Sama.net, so I want to make some videos in regards to that.
However, I'm also doing it because I thought it might be fun, and the more I've thought about it, the more I feel somewhat distant from a lot of the Mana fanbase these days...
Although this blog provides lots of interesting information, theres hardly any interaction. Its something I've completely cast aside since my days of owning the Mana-Sama.net forum which I shut down around the same time Monologue†Sanctuary was created.

In no way are my youtube videos going to overtake this blog; I absolutely plan on continuing entries on here because writing is my foremost love! Actually, I think making videos will be a way to supplement and enhance entries on here.
I really want to make videos of Moi dix Mois, MALICE MIZER, and Moi-meme-Moitie related content, so you will actually get to see various things first-hand and of course as always I'll continue to write just about everything as I always have on here.

I have several ideas for videos, and I'm already planning the next one which will be about new Moi-meme-Moitie items I ordered!!
I sincerely hope you will look forward to it! ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

Therefore......oh well, I'll let you play with me once in a while.

EGA page:
From the first moment I saw you, I fell in love.
I stared into your clear blue eyes and the call of your voice was like the rolling of a bell ball.
I could completely dedicate myself to this body.
You are just that adorable.

These versions are also now available for pre-order on the Moi-meme-Moitie site and cost the same as the black x blue version featured in the GLB.
For anyone who is interested in buying these socks, feel free to use me as a shopping service (theres a 15% service fee) if you like so you can get them as soon as they come out!! I currently only do shopping services for Moi-meme-Moitie or goods from the Midi: Nette shop online because I don't have enough time to visit shops like closet child very often anymore, so please be aware this offer is limited to these two online shops.

Lastly, please consider supporting the GLB. Volume 57 available for purchase on CDJapan!
The theme this time is cats, so its perfect for cat lovers!!
