After only three hours of sleep, I'm feeling a bit wired and I have an unfamiliar Japanese keyboard to deal with. Took me a while to work out how to turn off the automatic hiragana stuff.
One of the things I'm here to get is the boxed set of Camouflage. It is on the internet for an arm and a leg, so I thought I'd take the chance to see if I could find it for cheap in a sale or something. Had a quick look today (am in Osaka) and tried a DVD shop called "I love DVD". But the first rack of DVDs I saw on entering was porn. Rather an odd first impression to give people, I thought, but decided the TV dramas must be somewhere else. Second rack I looked at: more porn. I got the message, made my apologies and left.*
The next DVD shop I went into, I was more confident of because (a) it was on the ground floor, (b) it also sold books, and (c) a woman went in just before I did. Unfortunately, I couldn't find it, but it's still early days. I also went to look at some CDs to see if I could get something by Bump of Chicken or whoever. This was when I finally regretted me not learning the Japanese alphabet. I had no idea what order it was in, so I could barely find anything.
* this is just a saying. If I had actually apologised, it would've made the situation far more awkward for everyone concerned.
