Thanks to Danny and Akiyama-San from Good Smile Co. I was able to attend the opening event for akiba:F held today. The official start is tomorrow, but got to look around and see the amazing place today. And they didn’t even poke me with needles! It’s quite amazing and very futuristic. Looks very much like a medical bay from some scifi tv show. inside you get free wifi, lots of manga and magazines to read, and even an iPod touch powered entertainment center to use while you fluids are drained.
Free wifi, holograms… worth a little blood. This is on the “MAKE” places to visit, I want to live there (more photos).
