Since it's Golden Week in Japan, this weekend is one of the busiest season for the major anime/manga/game specialized stores in the Akihabara town, especially for Gamers' Akihabara main store which is holding three special exhibitions at the same time. Right now they have "NANA MIZUKI LIVE GRACE -OPUSII-×UNION Costume Exhibition 2013" on the 5th floor, "D.C. ~Da Capo~ Museum" on the 6th, and "Date A Live Museum" on the 7th. Unfortunately due to copyright restriction, no photography was allowed at the Nana Mizuki exhibition except a Nana-san's life-size panel which you could take a photo of yourself with her. Today I post a photo report on "Date A Live Museum" and will post a "D.C. ~Da Capo~ Museum" report tomorrow.
Date A Live is a fantastic love comedy light novel series written by Koshi Tachibana and illustrated by Tsunako. So far seven volumes were published by Fujimi Shobou's Fujimi Fantastic Bunko label in Japan.
The TV anime adaptation of the novel directed by Keitaro Motonaga (Katanagatari, Jormungand, Majestic Prince)
is now broadcasted on Tokyo MX and other local stations in Japan.
