It's impossible to tell who's genuine and who's not, so you just have to keep in mind that taking everything with a pinch of salt helps a lot. :lol:

This whole inner circle psychology of handshake events is something I don't know if I'll ever be able to understand or really get behind.  I guess I kinda almost said the same thing on one of the more recent pages in this thread, but its weird to see people post these "impressions" of people that they got based on 20-second interactions :D I guess its just one aspect of the fandom of idols I've never really gotten and never really will. I've met plenty of idols, and its great and all, but most of them I'd never have a reason to meet more than once and I'd definitely never start trying to formulate hypotheses of their personalities based on a handshake interaction which is very staged to begin with. Such a weird subject for me, but I see lots of people do it on AKB forums as well.  :?

hahaha yeah indeed, I guess it would depend on the community that you're in I guess? We have a small wota community over here in Malaysia where we would gather from time to time and then share stories and news of the various idol group that we all like. Nothing makes a better story than a handshake event story  :lol: Our community is pretty diverse when it comes to the idol of choice so its a lot of fun listening to everyone's story and that has somehow motivates everyone to go for it.

but whatever it is...

Sessions with Reia was just soooooooooooooooo adorable~!!!! I just had to go to her again XD

Yeah, handshake events are f'ing awesome. From top idol groups to the more obscure ones, it's always great fun. I like that it gives you a chance to 1. see the girls up close 2. actually talk and interact with them 3. convey your thanks/appreciation/whatever 4. you might see a new side of the girl that you don't see while she's on stage.

It's almost like a little adventure every time. You don't know what to expect and the outcome is always different, yet you always leave with a smile.

A 1000 yen a pop gets expensive real fast, so that's why I love Afilia Saga where you can go to their cafe and if you're lucky you get to hang out with the girl for a full hour and it only costs the price on one meal (800~1300 yen). XD

No, my favorite one is in Ikebukuro, but they also have one in Roppongi, Ueno and Shinjuku.
To avoid getting off topic I'd recommend you check/search the Afilia thread: http://forum.jphip.com/index.php?topic=26182.0

So, Hatix, hellguard and I went to see the first and last Kirakira Winter Land of 2013 the other day (01/05). Participating members were #16, #17, #19, #21 and #27.

Setlist:
One Up!!!
Konayuki ga Mau Machinami de (Solo: #17)
Koi no 20rensa
MAMORE!!!
Megami no Pulse

It felt pretty meaningless to line up for tickets at 10 in the morning for a 19~ performance so we had to stand in the back. But this meant that we wouldn't have to worry about being there in good time, so we decided to get a glimpse of the members as they would have to walk a certain path to get to the stage. Kaede spotted me so personally I was satisfied. lol
Behind the members among the staff were Kadosawa P and Mori D, and Hatix which is kind of acquainted to Mori tried to get his attention but to no avail...

We went back to see the live and then hurry back to catch them on their way out. We had perfect first row spots... or so we thought until Amimi and Hii-chan were the first ones to come out and then almost get assaulted by some old dude who pushed his way through and tried to touch Amimi. Having first row and everything I could clearly pick up Mori D going "That guy is dangerous", so the staff made a wall for the rest of the members who practically ran out from the stage with no time to make contact with the fans waiting.

As the girls were in the Niconico shrine for a live broadcast we were still in first row and Mori D who had noticed Hatix was here during the live came to talk to him, as well as another staff that none of us was familiar with. They chit-chatted for a bit and then Mori curiously asked if hellguard and I were friends of his, which lead to the revelation of a mini overseas Idolinger meet up going on. :lol: We got to talk for a few minutes until the girls were done, once again running out, and the old dude still being hysteric. Mori bowed, we bowed back, and hopefully this meeting will lead to something some day.

Idoling!!! 3D videos on 3DS
« Reply #2036 on: January 08, 2013, 01:12:13 AM »
So I've seen a ton of videos on YouTube and read a lot about the 3D videos that Idoling!!! was putting on the 3DS service last year, and I'm wondering if they're somehow still available to view through a Japanese 3DS account or is there an archive of them somewhere that maybe you can download to the SD card and watch at some point? I'd really like to watch all these, but the YouTube quality is horribly bad and I'd like to actually watch them in 3D. Does anyone know about this?

Thanks in advance if anyone has more info  8)2

Well it's no good, you cant access it from outside Japan. Unless you proxy your connection i guess. I tried it with my 3Ds before this, didn't work for me.

They actually restrict non-Japanese IPs? Or is it just that you have to have an account created with your home location as Japan? I'm gonna try to switch my stuff up, but I don't think you can actually change your location without deleting the entire account, and I don't think you can actually create an account with your location as Japan unless you have a Japanese 3DS.. I'm going to investigate more

And the contract between Fuji TV and 3DS is over.
You can't find it anywhere now. There is no archived videos.
