weekend geekness

Today I attended the Cherry Blossom Festival in San Francisco's Japantown. They had a big parade and lots of people were dressed like animé characters, it was really cool.

I liked this pink Bandai transformer style robot. There were a few robots, many geishas, samurais, people with animal hats, a few Pokémons, Sailor Moons and animé girls.


In the mall I also purchased a Bandai Zetton and Bat Seijin figure from the newest Ultra film. I also picked up 3 bootleg DVD's, last year's Ultraman movie, The X From Outer Space and one called Samurai Zombie that sounds promising. They were on sale 3 for $25. The dude selling them was a cool, cute tattooed punk, and he also had duplicate movie posters of cool cult flicks like Horror Of Party Beach, Lucio Fulci's Zombie, Nightmare On Elm Street, Godzilla films, etc. If you're into Japanese geek stuff, the Cherry Blossom Festival is like a wet dream. ;-)
