Yeah, I was pretty surprised to hear about it too. It was posted by a fellow Love Liver earlier today so I immediately drove down to Avenue K to check it out. I later found out that the gashapon machines were brought in by Shojikiya. It’s one of those dangly things which you can hang on stuff – the available characters are Chika, You, Riko, Dia and Kanan. Each roll is RM 15 (RM 5 tokens x 3) – if you’re not familiar with gashapon machines, they are novelties or collectibles stored in a plastic “egg” which is then cranked out of a machine. What comes out is random, you can’t choose the one you want, so it adds an element of chance (and gets collectors to spend more).
I wanted to get 1 of each girl but my limit was RM 150, which gives me 10 attempts. I did manage to get one of each but it took me till the 9th try (RM 135) to get Riko. I also had a brain fart and kept on referring to her as Ruby in the video. To be fair, she has a similar hair color but as a Love Live fan, I shouldn’t have made the mistake in the first place. Oh well. It did give me a chance to try out moving text though. I want to challenge myself to add a new effect that I learned into each video or make it better somehow. I’ve also been trying to add a lot of energy but I think this is a bit too much. Haha.
I was actually quite hyped up and on a lot of caffeine since I was about to start my daily
torture exercise regime before I rushed down for this.
(from RM 150 worth of gasha – or 10 attempts)
