Oh, well I tend to go to Akihabara almost every sunday so I might say hi!
though Super Potato is not the best place to hang out with many people
Another gaffer is with me also, but he doesn't post very often (and by that I mean even less than me :p)

1 week left. Any questions before the meetup, better ask them now. And confirm if you're gonna join us or not if possible.

I think I'll be able to make it. I'm going to be in Saitama earlier in the day for a Lucky Star event, but I think I'll be able to make it to Akiba in time for 18:00.

Aww man, this is so cool. Have fun guys! I haven't read the replies so this might have been touched on, but be aware that Super Potato seems to have kind of weird hours or maybe it was just a particular day of the week thing. I tried to go when visiting and it was already closed for the night and it was by no means super late. If you've done this before it might be entirely moot but just figured I'd share my unlucky experience. Akhibara was fun regardless though so no huge loss.

IM 99% SURE IM GOING!

I'll spend the day in Tokyo but I might have to leave at 8pm or around that though, cause I have to go back to Tsukuba and I don't know when the last bus leave from Tsukuba Station. I'll have to check.

Not going, sorry. I was so excited to meet you guys. :(

My friends decided to go to Tokyo on Friday and we stayed overnight clubbing in Shibuya. I blew 20k and I didn't even noticed. Eek.

And I'm from Tsukuba so I'd have to spend at least another 5k just for the round trip and a meal. I'll have to lay low for the rest of October, haha. And to be honest I have tons of homework to do too.

If you guys plan another meeting in November or in the upcoming months I'd be super up for it.

You guys have fun! :)

I miiiiiight just have to cancel as well. I really thought today's Sunday would be clear for me but I got a message this morning, something really important came up. Sorry guys. Not 100% sure yet though.

I blew 20k and I didn't even noticed. Eek.

You either made the rookie mistake of not pre-partying properly and buying too many drinks in the club, or you took the pro step of buying next level shit that enhances(?) life. Judging by the "eek", it's probably the former. Try pre-partying with strong zeroes or some decent Cocktail Partnet, or go to a place like Mist that offers pretty damn decent all you can drink for just a thousand yen.

Work just let me off so I'll be running a bit late, but I should make it to the meeting spot at about at about 1815.

I'll need to attend the next one. Been to Japan twice now and haven't visited during a meetup, unfortunately. Probably won't visit again for another year or so though, I need to get some other places off the checklist lol.
