Special #14: Montréal “World of Dreams”!

Here is a very tired but enthusiastic bunch of fans reporting on the latest “World of Dreams” North American tour.

It was so much fun! Thank you to Sakiko, Aube, J. College, and all of the people who made this show possible. Including, of course, the lovely ladies who came back to perform yet again in North America: Mariho Erina, Shihou Nanami, Ayaka Rei, and Tama Mayura. (Tama-san’s parents even came all the way from Japan to see her perform, which is so cool!)

If you went to Montreal or Vancouver for the show, please let us know about your experiences in the comments!

Special #1: Rurouni Kenshin Fanmeet in Sweden

Beware the Swedishisms!

CORRECTION: Lella says ‘Sanada’ when she meant ‘Sano’ (Sagara Sanosuke). Sorry to Houshou Dai for not remembering the name of the character – she was perfect! Also, Sano’s weapon is called a zanbatō.
