異世界からの来訪者 ~four days in japan~

this is part two of my short trip! i went to ikebukuro, funabashi, nakano, and back to ikebukuro! even tho i spent so much time there, i feel like i could still have spent more time in ikebukuro! it really is the best place for fujoshi! 日本一!!
When I left Ikebukuro station, I wandered around a bit, not really knowing where I was going. When I saw these Matsuno brothers, I knew I had found one of the anime parts of the area. Goodbye money! Ikebukuro really is great. Or terrible. K-Books Chara-kan is the best, but Mandarake was nice because I found my number one most wanted doujinshi.
Vending machine Takoyaki, and a Hatsune Miku poster in Shimbashi. I never had any particular desire to try Takoyaki, but when I saw it in the vending machine, I thought "Why not?" It was surprsingly good. Shimbashi isn't very anime at all; it was weird to see this poster there, but it was just as pretty.
I went to Funabashi, and found this Funassyi poster in the station. They know why I'm here... Funabashi station was very busy. From there I walked to the Keisei Funabashi station, took the train to Funabashikeibajo station, and took a shuttle to the Lalaport mall. I only took the shuttle because it was right there; the station and the mall are really close. It's a very large mall with Funassyiland, a Pokemon Center, Sanrio Gift Gate, plus a lot of stores you see in EVERY mall. I also went to Nakano Broadway, but honestly, I wasn't impressed at all. I thought it'd be cool, but I prefer a real mall.
Breakfast at Matsuya and some Pikachu in Sunshine City. I totally regret not going to Matsuya earlier! It's definitely the first time I ever ate fish for breakfast, but it was very good and cheap too. The gyudon was delicious! I'm not entirely sure the nori was actually edible though... LOL. After I finished eating, I went to Shimbashi station, which was surprisingly not busy. Rush hour hadn't started yet! I arrived back in Ikebukuro right as things started to get busy.
Cats and cat girl! Most of the stores weren't open yet (except donki), so I decided to check out the park with the cats. They're not super friendly but they aren't shy either. Also, another Gamers I didn't go into but still took a photo of the sign.
Haikyuu staircase in Animate and a cute bird building. This isn't even all of the Haikyuu that was on this staircase. I actually wasn't that impressed with this Animate store. The only thing I bought was the new issue of Animedia, which has a World Trigger cover but a lot of stuff inside that I don't care about. There's a very nice Seraph of the End poster though.
Only slightly annoying Hello Kitty popcorn machine in Haneda airport, and my final purchases. The mask was actually a really useful item. I'm not sure how much actual sleep I got on the plane, but the time went by quickly.
