Japanese Journal #7



English Translation:

  Two journals ago, I wrote about how much I liked the live action "Sailor Moon" tokusatsu. Well, last year, while I was in Japan, I met Miyuu Sawai, the actress who played Sailor Moon.
  In 2010, Sawai performed in a "Snow White" stage musical (playing Snow White). So, I went to the Nihonbashi* "Mitsukoshi" department store where the the musical was playing and attended a performance. It was fun, though a little embarrassing, what with most of the audience being children. (ed: Yeah, this ain't exactly literal translation anymore. Fuck it.)
  After the musical ended, and we, the audience, we heading out the door, we were instructed by the theatre's manager to "please wait a moment." At that moment, Sawai, along with other actors from the musical, came out into the hall. The kids then took pictures with all the actors. I was really embarrassed now, but eventually, I approached the actors, shook their hands, and thanked them. Then I came up to Sawai. I shook her hand, and intended to talk with her a little bit, but instead I just said "thank you" and walked away.
  Unfortunately, I didn't bring a camera with me, so I don't have any pictures, which is sad. Nevertheless, I can now say that I've met "Sailor Moon".
