Visitors from another planet, part 2




Just look at them! Isn't it clear these aren't innocent earthlings?

Anyway, their names are Daryl & Yuko (Intergalactic Interpol says they may be going by the aliases "Dariru", "Datchan", and "Yuu-chan"). They visited us waaaaay back on January 2nd. Yes, it's been way too long and I'm four months late in getting this up. Oops.

The visited us from the land of a distant king named Hiro Shima. King Shima apparently has done strange things to them, because they enjoyed seeing the electronics district of Osaka (Nippombashi) so much that they instantly struck an "otaku"-attracting cat pose mating call (see above).

Obviously they were getting dangerous. Or rather, they were putting us in danger. Luckily we escaped before anyone responded to the "neko" call. We decided to take them down to the rough part of town, Shin-Sekai. However, Tsutenkaku Tower must've reminded them of their spaceship, because they got this evil gleam in their eyes...




So I quickly showed 'em which side we were from, and Yoko... smiled:



Thankfully they backed down quickly. So far down in fact that they feared sitting near us when we took them to eat kushi-katsu...



Feeling sorry for them, we let them sit next to us. They were very happy! (Don't let the unchanging expression on Daryl's face fool you, he's really stoked!) Although, it took quite awhile for them to realize the "kushi-katsu" was not a wand or something to rotate in your hand...



Yoko and I demonstrated for them, but I kept an eye on them, just in case...



And just like the "Kar-Yee" from part 1, they took pictures of our okonomiyaki...



Go figure. If another one does it next time, we'll have to put the smack down with the spatula...



All in all, though, it seems they had a good time, especially when we took them to our "mansion" and let them relax on our "sofa"...



And for that matter, so did we. We'd welcome them back anytime, even if it should put us in danger of being overrun by crazed otaku in Nippombashi or getting in trouble with the Intergalactic Okonomiyaki Police.

We took them to the station, and they promptly entered...




...the ladies' car. *shrug*

Well, maybe it's not so strange on their planet. But the pose they struck as they rolled off was definitely interesting to us...




Stay tuned for parts three....... and four!

    What do the doubled up fists mean? Like a wave or something?
