Anime North - Nominoichi

(The comm hasn't been the most active place, but hoping some people will still read this.)

Anime North is coming up and this year, for the Nominoichi (or the flea market - it's on Friday, 7:00pm to 10:30pm), they have changed the rules to expand the things you can sell there. From the official website, the new rule is that goods sold must be "50% (or more) of anime and %50 (or less) of everything else", as long as all items are not bootlegs. Expanded categories included Japanese culture and Jpop items! Which means...we can sell Johnnys stuff as well!

I'm hoping to get a table this year and was wondering if anyone wants to share a table with me. It costs $30CAD to get a full table and we can have up to 3 sellers at one table (which means $10/seller then). You must have some anime merchandise to sell (and an Anime North pass of course) though, to follow with the rule. I don't have enough anime merchandise to cover the 50/50 rule if people I'm sharing the table with don't have anime stuff to sell.

The table reservation starts on April 9th, so it'd be great if I can get a response before then!

For those who want more details, just check the official website here.

PS I'm also looking to sell an extra copy of Popolo April 2011 (among other things, if you would like to check my sales post) and would prefer a buyer around the Toronto/York Region area to avoid shipping costs. Contact me through PM if you're interested!

Introduction :D

Hi! :D

Name: Jazzy

Age: 16 (I'm a young one :P)

Location: Ottawa!!!

Ethnicity: Well, I'm adopted from China and apparently I don't act Chinese lol

Languages: English and French (and Latin if that counts)

Favourite JE group: NEWS all the way!

Favourite JE member: Masuda Takahisa and Kato Shigeaki <33

Interests/hobbies: drawing, dancing, music, theatre, swimming, singing, hanging with friends, languages, travelling, ...

About me: I joined LJ about 4 months ago so I'm still pretty new. I'm not really a fan of many Johnny's groups but I am obsessed with NEWS. I've been a fan for only about 8 months but I really love them. In fact, the main reason why I got LJ was to join communities and meet more NEWS fans from all over the world. I'm so happy that this community exists so that I don't feel like the only Canadian who has heard of JE. I really hope to meet more Canadian fans and spread the fandom around. I'm trying to turn some of my friends into NEWS or Johnnys fans but so far it's not working. Everyone either hates anything jpop (or even anything asian) or is too into Kpop. So this really disappoints me but knowing that there are other Canadian fans out there makes me happy. I'd love to know if anyone else lives in Ottawa. Anyway, I hope we can be friends. Feel free to add me :):):)

Hello everyone!

So looking at the dates and time people are available,
we have thought of the final time.

When: Sunday July 31, 2011
Time: 1:00pm~8:00pm (or whenever ppl feel like leaving or coming)

Meeting place/We are going to meet in front of the star bucks at finch/yonge (If you get out of finch station and go up you should get here)
We are then going to move to Shout Karaoke which is just across the star bucks which has happy hour from 1pm-6pm where we can sing, chill, watch dvd, flip magazines. This place is really cheap during happy hour so we can stay there for 5 hours for around $6!

After 6 we are going to move to a korean restaurant near by to eat dinner.

1.Leave a comment if you can come
2.Give me a pm if you want to know my cell phone number. This is in case if you get lost.
3.Possible clothes you're going to be wearing that day so we know who is who? (I guess we will post this when the date is close because I have no idea what I'm going to wear that day XD)
4.Or post any other questions you have.
5.Bring any arashi stuff you can share!!

Hope a lot of people can come!!

Advertise the event to all arashi fans in Toronto and tell them to comment on the post so I know who is coming!

Hope to see all of you there!


BLUE is the meeting place
RED is karaoke place
and we are going to eat beside twister karaoke.

Please if you say you're coming,
please show up!

We don't want to wait for hours until people actually show up.

tpow027's friend
maybe sparkles_n15 
Ppl who might come late (after 7pm)

Arashi Fan Meet in Toronto!

Hello Arashi and JE fans in Toronto!
Although I've joined this community today the heat is rising for an Arashi fan meet in Toronto!

Please comment on this post if you're interested!

Right now we are thinking about doing it on Sunday July 24.(Look below for edited date) But please tell us which dates you are open so we can have as many people as we can.

I'm thinking if we're going to go to karaoke we should go to
Finch Station
where we have many selections in JE songs. (Everything will be written in Korean and Japanese though)

After that we can move to the princess cafe upstairs and flip through magazines and JE goods we all have
watch con dvds in the karaoke rooms and maybe dinner and stuff later if everything goes well :)

So to summarize

1. Karaoke
2. Fan talk
3. Fan DVD/Video watching
4. Dinner if ppl are up for it

.. and that's about it lol

If you're interested

1.Leave dates you can meet for this summer
2.Invite your other Arash fan friends who live in ontario!

Any suggestions and comments are appreciated!


Edited on July 13 12:20pm:
>> So it seems not a lot of ppl can make it on Sunday July 24 (Only 2 from what I read right now)
Would it be better if we have it on Saturday July 30 or Sunday July 31 the following week?
I find that weekdays will be hard for ppl who work (like me) or people who still have school.
I would like as many ppl to come to the fan meet! Please comment :D

Introduction -Konnichiwa!

Name: Rin
Age: 19, turning 20 soon
Location: Toronto, Ontario
Ethnicity: Japanese
Language: English and Japanese
Favourite JE group(s): Arashi
Favourite JE member(s): Sakurai Sho ヾ(*´∀`*)ノ
Idols: I like all other johnny groups as well
Interests/Hobbies: drawing, manga/anime, computer, graphic design, karaoke, talking, arashi fandoming

Random Facts:
Soo- I have been so lonely being an only arashi fan around my area :(
(Or I haven't gotten around getting to know anyone who likes them much as me)
But it seems like Johnny's/Arashi and quite a lot of Sho fans actually do exist!
So I finally got around and I actually made a LJ account just to join this community!
I am a Japanese Canadian currently studying graphic design in a school.
I can speak Japanese fluently (I was kind of forced to) but lived in Canada for my whole life.
I'm really upset to know that there was a johnny's group meet at anime north because I was there as a staff!!
(Did anyone see me at the podium translating for the Japanese guests? :p)

I would really like to make great friends that can talk about the new releases, sing songs at karaoke, and watch con dvd's together :>

My sakurai sho fandom started just about 2 years ago now when I fell in love with sho's rap and dorkiness.

Give me a hey or a msg if u find me interesting (Now this sounds little bit like a dating introduction =_=;;)
I also have facebook :)
This is my tumblr page: http://shosakurai.tumblr.com/ (Although I don't update much hehe)

Yoroshiku onegaishimasune +(0゚・∀・) +

Also because I'm really new to LJ (maybe 10min has passed since I joined lol)
it'll be great if you have any recommendation for any communitys or ppl I should visit and say hello. Airgato!
