I can't believe I managed to procrastinate a good half year before writing this review. What made me get down to writing this was a refreshing memory from the day of the event itself.. Video taken and edited by elpheal

Moving on to the review on that day..
Starting with a rough summary. Since forming the team for our traditional Hakuouki costumes, I had always wanted Kanasaiii
to join us once again for the Calendar version of Hijikata but countless times, she would reject me. Due to the difficulty of dyeing the gradient on his hakama, lack of funds, interest and would rather do other series. We are best friends, so naturally, I was upset, although respecting her decision. Later, I was told by ashteyz
that we have a coser named.. N-..NN..omg I forgot. Nelly? whatever. joinging us as Hijikata. Despite that, I continued to relentlessly grill Kanasaiii
to still cosplay Hijikata. But she never agreed to in the end, so I disappointingly gave up.
I was annoyed at this girl who was gonna be our Hijikata. Because she never did come for our team discussion meetings, and was even late turning up for the event. But when she finally came...The video is for friends only on fb so I screencapped..keixtique69
turned almost immediately to see how I reacted!
...and followed by a roar of laughter TwT
Really, I was just STUNNED.Kanasaiii
as Hijikata Toshizo.
WILL YOU LOOK AT HER PRIDEFUL FACE!! LOLOL!
...everyone was laughing!
I was speechless and finally, senses hit me and I knew I was pranked.
KANASAI, CAN I HIT YOU NOW?
Embarrassed. Amused. Speechless. And....
They were like... SUCCESS!! WOOOO!!!!!
It was not very manly, but I cried. Happy tears of course. Thank you all for bringing me such a dear memory to my heart, especially to Kanasaiii
who suffered a lot of verbal abuse, tantrums and tried so hard to keep it a secret from me.
Apparently! She gave her thumbs up to cosplay Calendar Hiji even before me. OTL And decided to 'get back' at me for the same prank I did to her 4 years ago. XD
