MAKOTO-CHAN HAS BEEN SPOTTED

The map was right :) I just got this keitai photo from Nate in the middle of the night!



Today in Tokyo, Nate biked over from his apartment and was able to spot the Makoto-chan house easily. Tomorrow, we'll hopefully be posting his proper camera photos from outside the Kazuo Umezu's house of wonders. RAD!

That is amazing. We should totally organize a Same Hat pilgrimage there. I can just imagine Umezu's face when he looks out of his window and sees a bunch of white guys taking pictures.

@kouros: I am most definitely hoping to get in front of that house someday. I wonder if I can talk to Viz friends and see about meeting him in some official capacity?? :B

We can rally the troops-- Same Hat guys and girls of all backgrounds in a big dorky mob in front of his house. Oh shit, on his birthday! :B

Curse you and your industry contacts. I'll have to resort to meeting him in some unofficial capacity. I wonder what kind of security systems he has...

That would be an awesome birthday present. With all of us wearing red-and-white striped shirts, of course.

@kouros: haha, yeah... I don't actually think I can trick anyone into letting me anywhere near the guy :) There is always Umezzfest 2009, sometime in the fall? Since it's a big fan event, it's open to the public...

I had the same idea with all of us showing up with red and white t-shirts, on the perfect same hat field trip!
