Hey all, I am now in Japan, arrived here on Monday. Still fighting the jetlag but err, yeah. Anyway.

Anyone want to do a mini-meet on Monday July 16th? I know so far Mr. Rancor is attending, plus a couple of other folks (not SHMUPS forum members). Would be cool to meet so drop me a PM if you want and I can respond individually and let you know where the meet up is happening (in Shinjuku to start with).

Monday is a public holiday in Japan right? Hope folks can stop by. :)

PM me. :?: :D

p.s I am not flying solo, my wife is with me, so if any of you have other halves you'd like to bring, that's great too. :D

For both days.

Ebisen meetup on the 29th sounds awesome too.
Would be cool if all of the Tokyo regulars would be able to attend!
Sorry for the late response but i've been in the woods for 8 days with 0 access to internet.

Ok, Ebisen meet-up on the 29th looking official.

Eaglet wants Battle Garegga put in. I'll be on DFK. Any other attendees/board requests?

Also, for anyone going to the Game Summer Festival (Wasshoi), I'm going to look into staying nearby, either at hotel or a camp site. I'll post up info once I have it.

29th is the day I'm arriving in Tokyo. I'll probably be tired but I'm definitely going to join you guys for some shmup action. Hope I'll manage to find you, because I expect that I'll be pretty damn LOST on my first few days :DDDD

I expect the Tokyo regulars to be there too, just so you guys know. ;)
Anyone who knows now that he won't be able to make it?

I'll be there. Hopefully Sunday's at Ebisen aren't as crowded as Saturday's. What time should we all meet?

I think I can get to Ebisen around 3pm. How does that sound?

I don't know where I'm staying at first yet, don't have a CSurfing host for the first nights, so I'm just gonna book some hostel. My plan is to find a bicycle as soon as possible though, so if I have time I'll get one before getting to Ebisen and I'll be free to move.

By the way, if any of you guys have a bicycle you don't use, or a friend of yours does, I can give you some 円 円 円 for lending it to me for 2 weeks or a month :]

Prometheus do you know the train station where Ebisen is at?

Basically from anywhere in Tokyo, ride to Ikebukuro (you'll probably ride the Yamanote-sen 山手線) and then get on the 西武池袋線 (Seibu Ikebukuro line) and ride that to 江古田 (Egota). Get off on the south exit, call us and we'll come meet you.

Obviously you should check in your stuff at your hostel first before coming to Ebi-sen since it's super small. I'll PM you my phone number and you can call me when you've reached the station.

To everybody else coming on the 29th, please show up at 3 pm at Egota (江古田) station south exit.

P.S. Shou, one day I would like you to pillage my shitty Akira. ;D

I also wouldn't recommend a bicycle as your main mode of transportation. It's a massive city and it'll be even easier to get lost that way (which is part of the fun of traveling, but not if there's somewhere you've got to be).

Be careful on the Seibu Ikebukuro line. Lots of rapid and semi-rapid trains, plus trains that branch off in different directions that will send you away from Egota. When in doubt, just ask one of the station attendants.

Ok adversity1, the station's name is Ekoda instead of Egota though, isn't it ? That's in the Nakano district, yes ?

It seems to go by both readings, but Egota is more common. (I only see it written as Ekoda on buses for some reason.)

And yea, it's in the Nakano district.

Cool. Awesome. Can't wait to be there, it's gonna be crazy 0_0
If you guys wanna grab a beer or coffee before going into the arcade I think that would be cool, because I expect the place to be f00king noisy and not the best spot to make first-contact conversation no? ^^

Actually, while that's true of most arcades here (HEY especially), Ebisen is real quiet. Saturday nights get a little crowded, but even then it's not all that bad.

I'm still down for getting a beverage, though.

Nomihodai = pay one set fee and drink as much as you can.

I got in touch with ebisen and they let me know that DDP, DFK 1.5 and Garegga will be running. Requested DOJ BL and MMP but all the Wasshoi guys are going to be there so they won't have room. See you guys tomorrow.

Great ebisen time with you guys yesterday. It was great meeting each of you. On the way back home, I fell asleep in the train as expected and did a full circle of the Yamanote line unpurposely... lol. Then I missed the Akihabara station AGAIN on the second circle, but woke up only two stations after so it was faster getting off the train and taking one going the opposite direction. Mega lol... Hopefully you only pay depending on which station you get off at, not on number of stations you passed ^^^^^

Special encounter with SOF-WTN, thank you so much adversity1 for translating. WTN is a very cool guy, I'll share the story for everyone a little later. I forgot to take any pictures, which is stupid.

I will probably want to come back to Ebisen next week end. Tuesday, it's Akihabara time! We should find a place to get some real drinking time in the evening^^ Thank you all and see you soon.

You're fine--for non-express/limited express trains on JR, the fare only depends on where you get on and off, so you can ride in circles on the Yamanote all day long for 130 yen if you want.
