Just when you think my previous post about Mo-Wotas (Morning Musume Otaku) paying SOMA a visit is purely fiction... they DID pay a visit there for real!
I've been wondering now that Aibon case is closed, would the fans go to the SOMA restaurant out of curiosity, and... err... "talk" to that man Ishimoto (who needs no introduction by now). And what would they do once they get there. I would suggest "Where's the owner?" to start things off.
First, the location of SOMA. Go here. Can't locate it? Have no fear, Google Map is here.
Well... Looks the same as what we saw from the website. Seems like a nice, quiet place. Only that the dude who took the picture probably didn't realise his reflection can be seen from the glass. ^_^
Eating time. Left some notes on a sketchbook.
"We came from the Ookami" and "SOMA Off" ....... Sort of like "John was here" kind of message?
NOTE: Actually, I wonder if it was deliberate, and that he actually meant "Musume".
狼 [Ookami] means wolf
娘 [Musume] means daughter
Unless of course, that visitor means that he came from Ookami2ch - 狼ニュース＠2ｃｈ, a Mo-Wota BBS.
Then comes the bill, signed "Ookami". LOL :D
And these are the business cards found on the cash register.
Yup, they also have a massage services.
Check out the slogan - "Sublime meets ridiculous" - What creativity. Their use of "Engrish" did not fail to impress me. That picture of a trio smoking their lives away is also very educational indeed.
You know what's even freakier about this? Some good fellow left a message on their lanterns at night - A piece of card with "Kago Ai" written on it.
Vandalism with a purpose...... I suppose. (^o^)/
SoOOOooo... SOMA got a national exposure out of scandal. Not sure if it's fair though. I don't know if those fellas did anything more than that. But if they do, it probably won't be published in the BBS only..... it would be on the national news again.
My thoughts... I hope nobody's hurt. The wotas, I mean.
