I met IGA personally today!

Mwhahahahahaha! I have to write this down while it is still fresh.

There was an Artplay booth at a local gaming convention today (go to the Bloodstained social media feeds to know where it is).
And IGA was there with his whip and cowboy hat!
Japanese language does come in handy. :) Whew~

I brought a few stuff with me for autographs including my Gebel cross stitch. IGA loved it and even took a picture holding the work with me beside him. I told him this was already shown in the tumblr post and I think he recognized it. He said he'll upload it on twitter, but I don't know if it will push through or not. Someone post the link here if ever it appears.

Anyway, The more important thing is that he remembered me, by my online name, of course! OMG!
It was way back then when he's still in Konami and I congratulated him on his i-revo blog regarding DoS winning something from E3. I think had a post somewhere here about it. #fangirlmoments

I told him the existence of this forum and he knew about us from the community clan. He told me that he might not have the time to visit. I hope he finds the time. I also told him that I translated Kabuchi no Tsuisokyouku in English and he was happy that I did.

Finally I told him that I'd be supporting his work and he told me that he'd do his best.

I wasn't able to play the demo but I was able to watch IGA play. He finished it without getting any hits, which is true to his principle.

On things other than Bloodstained. I played the FFXV demo. Its been 10 years and I still have a crush on Noct.

Edit:
Pictures of the autographed stuff. Also see attachment. I also asked him to sign my DxC artbook but since the signature is on the inside, I did not bother to upload it anymore since the inside cover is just pure black paper.

Oh my goodness, Shiroi!  :D  <3  That's amazing!  So THAT'S WHO you were meeting, no wonder you were asking me about con etiquette on how much you could take to get signed!  That's absolutely amazing that he's remembered you as well! :D I'm going to stalk the Bloodstained facebook page and twitter now to see if I can spot a photo of you two.  I'm rather jealous now! :D  I'm absolutely bouncing for you right now.  If I see the photo, I'll send the link your way or send you a file of it if it's on fb-land. 

I really hope that he can in person visit us lot on here. :D

Thank you so much guys!  ;D

I also surprised myself by staying sane all throughout the encounter. Although I fangirl-ed when he mentioned that he remembered me.
I held the mighty VK whip, care of IGA. He brought 2 of them. :)
Regarding how IGA plays... like a veteran player who knows the appropriate timing for attacking/jumping and the proper sequence of traversing the rooms. He's not a speed runner though, so Miriam just moves normally.

My internet is crappy today. I might upload the pics tomorrow.

:D  That's amazing!  It's awesome to see it in his hands, and to see you Shiroi. :D  It's great as well that he's stayed true to his word, and posted it up so quickly.  I'm not at all surprised that you fanirled at his remembering you.

That's really cool that you got to handle the VK.  Did you pose with it for photos?

Couldn't help but read this statement in a lewd way. SuperWaffle should make a fanfic about it.

Thats is cool, I can get the picture with that.

lol! The mighty VK whip is metal, not leather. If anything it's more like holding the whip of Indiana Jones. But each to their own preferences.
