Mana Rendezvous in May
This is a topic I've been receiving non-stop messages on since its announcement, so I think its high time I posted about it on here.

As I talked about in my previous entry, I'm moving away from covering Moi-meme-Moitie related information due to the owners, Tanaqro, as well as Wunderwelt, currently having a hold on information and updates posted in English. As an extension, Mana also posts this same news on his twitter in English. However, I did say I would write on here if the information was deemed as important. In fact, the Rendezvous is quite a big announcement seeing as this is it's first revival after a 5 year hiatus.

What makes this possibly even more important is the event details. For those who would like to attend, it seems the information on when and how to obtain tickets has been posted and that timing will be soon.
Please refer to the following post made by Moi-meme-Moitie:

For those who may be a little confused or worried that tickets may only be distributed inside Japan, fear not! Wunderwelt is listed as a distributor for obtaining tickets. Wunderwelt is a site that caters to customers overseas, so as long as you follow through with your order on their site, you should have an equal opportunity to obtain tickets even if you're not in Japan right now. As far as I understand, ticket confirmations are going to be sent via email, so it doesn't sound like obtaining a physical ticket beyond that is going to be too big of an issue.

Good luck to those of you planning to go!

Its interesting, but perhaps not surprising, to see that Moi-meme-Moitie is now going the route of primarily depending on online sales. Seeing as it seems Rendezvous tickets have somewhat of a priority on the official MmM site compared to physical stores, I get the feeling this is a strong indication they're trying to phase out brick and mortar business. I wonder what you all think of this?
Even if you're not living in Japan, is it a sad prospect to think about, or is it a better move to make so that Moi-meme-Moitie can be more accessible to everyone? I have to say, I feel a little of both, but its something I've thought about for some years now.


**Supplementary Update**

As you can see below (now marked out) originally I wasn't going to be able to go to the Mana Rendezvous event. However, I wanted to make a note that since that update I have officially received an extra ticket from a friend and fellow fan.
Thank you soooo much for this opportunity. Your kindness has truly blown me away and rendered me totally speechless in the moment I received the news.

With that being said, everyone will now be able to look forward to an event review on the Rendezvous this coming May! I hope you will enjoy it!

As for me/this blog,
Unfortunately I will probably not be going to this event. I don't have enough funds to pay for this event + my personal living costs, so unless by some miracle I received a ticket without having to buy something, I have no chance at it. Of course by writing this I am not asking for a free ticket, so please don't take it the wrong way!! I just wanted to explain the reality of the situation for those who may have been looking forward to a report on here. Since it seems Moi-meme-Moitie is trying hard to reach out to more customers overseas, I imagine there will probably be quite a few new people who will get the opportunity and hopefully will be happy to share their experiences!



P.S.
To anyone who still wants to go to the Moi dix Mois Mana birthday concerts in March, general admission tickets are going on sale tomorrow January 28 from 10:00 am! Heres the eplus link:

Of course don't forget to check out the new group I built on Facebook concerning tickets in case you're looking to buy/sell tickets second-hand!

I haven't had the time to do it yet, but sooner or later I would like to post a tutorial online about how to order tickets since I always tend to get a lot of questions about it.


P.S. 2!!

Today I went for a freezing walk in a certain favorite area and ended up taking a couple pictures I fell in love with!

Its a little small, but you can see the moon in the second picture! The view was pretty breathtaking in that moment, because these two pictures were taken at the same time! The sun was setting on one side while the moon was rising on the other. I wanted sooo badly to have a panoramic of the entire scene, but unfortunately it wouldn't have worked out the way I wanted. Still, I was really excited to get photos that actually turned out well of both views!


With that being said,
I will, as always, continue to update as more information comes out!
