6. Independent World Jr. Heavyweight Title: Ken Ohka (c) defeated “brother” YASSHI with the Fire Spear (20:45).
*V3 for Ken Ohka.

The Independent World Jr. Title still belongs to Ken Ohka after a hard fought victory against “brother” YASSHI. Ohka kicked out of YASSHI’s big moves like the Nice Jamaica and the Flying Big Head. Ohka hit back with a Headbutt and a short range Fire Spear for a nearfall. Ohka then finished YASSHI off with a Veritcal Drop Brainbuster and another Fire Spear to win. Ohka gave an emotional speech to YASSHI after the match. Ohka didn’t know anything when they first met. He wasn’t physically strong or had any athletic achievements but he still wanted to be a pro wrestler. So he found the Dragon System, joined their wrestling school and met YASSHI for the first time. Ohka can’t say who was the bigger fool of the two when they went their seperate ways. Ohka had quit and returned to wrestling so many times over 17 years. Today in Shinjuku FACE he and YASSHI had a big match together. He is so happy he gets to wrestle his colleagues now. Ohka fell onto YASSHI and hugged him. YASSHI was crying too and he didn’t know why. He didn’t care about winning a championship today. He came here today to look for an answer and now he found it. He wanted to fight a confident and emotional wrestler who would put it all on the line with no regrets. Today’s match wasn’t for “brother” YASSHI, it was for Yasushi Tsujimoto. He said there is not a single wrestler like Ken Ohka in this industry. YASSHI pleaded with Ohka to continue wrestling and to do so with pride. With the silly emotional stuff out of the way, YASSHI snapped back to his regular self and told Ohka he made a jealous enemy today. When they meet again in this ring, YASSHI will kill him!

When YASSHI left ringside, Ohka went into his finishing speech but was suddenly interrupted by an unexpected visitor. It was Daisuke Sasaki and he was carrying the DDT Extreme Title! Sasaki thought Ohka was going to lose but he proved him wrong. Sasaki called it a great match that moved him and he hopes the 3 Way Match in DDT on 24th September will be just as good. He wanted to shake Ohka’s hand. It was a trap and Sasaki kicked Ohka below the belt! Sasaki mocked Ohka for falling for his trap. He doesn’t care about championships, he’s here to win the 660,000 yen that Ohka would have gambled had he lost his championship today. Ohka told Sasaki he has no need to gamble it now. His Independent World Jr. Title will be defended in the match as planned so he has no need to put his money on the line anymore. Sasaki silenced Ohka when he pulled something out of his pocket. It was Ohka’s savings book! Sasaki stole it backstage during the main event. Sasaki looked through it and discovered that Ohka now has 714,146 yen in his account. Ohka called for help and several Ganpuro wrestlers ran into the ring to grab the book. Sasaki fought all of them off. Ohka got up and Headbutted Sasaki. He went for the Fire Spear but Sasaki dodged it and Ohka speared himself into the turnbuckles. Sasaki fled the ring with Ohka’s savings book. Ohka’s money is gone but he will still defend his title in DDT on 24th September. Then he will defend it again against MIYAWAKI back in Ganbare☆Wrestling on 30th September.

The Awakening Power Bomb that Keisuke Ishii used to win his match is a Sit Down Thunder Fire Power Bomb. The match was also Shota’s return bout for Ganbare☆Wrestling. His first match back from injury happened the day before in Guts World. His partner for the match Yumehito Imanari apologised for taking the fall and letting him down.

Shuichiro Katsumura stopped Osamu Namiguchi with a Benadryller style High Kick to win by TKO. Although he was still dazed, Namiguchi grabbed a microphone and thanked Katsumura for not holding back against this dying semi-pro wrestler. However Namiguchi wasn’t satisfied by how he lost and now feels like the worst wrestler in Japan. He begged Katsumura to strike him right in the brain and finish him off. Katsumura said he didn’t understand what Namiguchi was saying. He noted that the match they just had was advertised as a Shinjuku bout. So they should have more matches against each other in places like Shin-Kiba and other cities. Namiguchi shouted with approval.

Nanaka Kawamura made quite an entrance for her debut wrestling match. She entered wearing a hockey mask, carrying a floral designed chainsaw and was accompanied by four other girls doing the same. Emi Sakura was announced as the “Youngest Active Idol Wrestler” during her introduction, which made her glare at the ring announcer. She also glared at Kawamura when she offered a respectful handshake at the start of the match. Sakura & Riho put Kawamura through the usual rookie’s welcome while HARUKAZE did what she could to aid her partner. Kawamura eventually submitted to Sakura’s Shukurimu but was praised by Ken Ohka after the match. Ohka urged Kawamura to continue and one day she will get her first victory. Ohka then praised Sakura for her entire career but accidentaly made her mad when he said she gave up the chance of marriage to do what she does. Sakura scolded Ohka for his words then turned to Kawamura. Sakura is happy to get new challenges and Kawamura should be too. Kawamura said it was her mother’s dream to become a pro wrestler and today she made it come true on her behalf. Kawamura wants Sakura to come back so they can have more matches together.

There was a special guest in attendance for today’s show. Katsuji Nagashima has worked behind the scenes for New Japan and World Japan. He spoke with several wrestlers in the ring throughout the show and asked for everyone to nickname him Wolf. He handed a book to Imanari and told him it was the same book he gave to Kensuke Sasaki when he convinced him to leave New Japan for World Japan. He said he made Sasaki betray Riki Choshu. Now he thinks Imanari should betray Sanshiro Takagi! At the end of the show he told Ohka he was surprised by what he saw. He felt like he watched pro wrestling for the first time again. He offered to lend Ohka 10,000 yen after he saw Sasaki steal his money. He then asked Ohka to call him Wolf again.

1. OVER THE TOP: Yumehito Imanari & Bambi defeated Yukihiro Abe & Mitomi Masayuki when Imanari pinned Masayuki with the Chubby Knee (11:25).
2. Ai Shimizu Ganbare☆Wrestling Third Trial – 2nd Round: Hiroyo Matsumoto defeated Ai Shimizu with a Reverse Splash Double Knee Drop (10:53).
3. Revenge Match: Mars Spector defeated Chikara with an Inverted Crab Hold (7:27).
4. Recovery And Memory Of K: Makoto Oishi & Shiori Asahi defeated Hi69 & Shinichiro Tominaga when Oishi pinned Tominaga after the Cactus Flower (13:03).
5. Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling: Kenso Ohka & Osamu Namiguchi defeated Ken Ohka & Shuichiro Katsumura when Namiguchi pinned Ken Ohka after Kenso Ohka did the Spear Of Fire From The Heart (18:30).

The Twin Ganbare War continued with the original promotion and its counterfit battling each other in a Tag Team Match. Both teams came out to “Bad Communication” and a ringside brawl was quick to happen. Shibata interfered to help out Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling but Ken Ohka got rid of him and hit Osamu Namiguchi with the Spear Of Fire. The referee counted the pin until Shibata pulled him out of the ring. Namiguchi gave Ohka the Lanakila-X then Kenso Ohka hit his version of the Spear Of Fire. Namiguchi got the pin while Shibata held onto Shuichiro Katsumura outside the ring. Kenso gave the referee a Vertical Drop Brainbuster after the match. Shibata was introduced as the newest member of Shin Ganpuro. When they left, Ken Ohka tried to rally his fans. He’s spent four years building Ganbare☆Wrestling and no matter how bad things get he will always be proud of the company. He’s not going to quit if he doesn’t have any talent. If that was true he would have quit wrestling ten years ago. He challenged Shin Ganpuro to a 6-Man Tag for 11th February. It will be Ken Ohka, Katsumura & Mitomi Masayuki Vs Namiguchi, Kenso Ohka & Shibata!

Shinichiro Tominaga’s re-introduction to K-DOJO continued with a tag match with him and Hi69 against Makoto Oishi & Shiori Asahi. Although he lost, Tominaga is getting noticed. Oishi pointed out that everyone in the ring was an ex-K-DOJO wrestler. Asahi shook his head in denial then told Tominaga to get ready to visit Chiba for their participation in K-DOJO’s upcoming Tag League.

Mars Spector refused to let go of the Crab Hold on Chikara after beating him. The referee was able to break them up and Yumehito Imanari then ran in to confront Spector and challenge him to a match next month. Without saying a word, Spector accepted. During the closing speeches, Imanari said he’s been secretly training at the DDT dojo specifically for this challenge.

Ai Shimizu is now zero for two in her trial series after losing to Hiroyo Matsumoto. Her third match in the series will be against Cassandra Miyagi!

Imanari was excited to team with Bambi again but the feeling was not mutual. Either way they won their match when Bambi hit Masayuki with the Standing Shining Wizard then Imanari followed up with a Busaiku Knee Kick that now has a name based around his big girl fetish.

Shota was brought into the ring at the end of the show. He is getting knee surgery that will put him out of action for the rest of the year. All the wrestlers on the roster who previously had surgery gave him words of encouragement and wished him the best.

1. Real Tiger Mask Vs Rikidozan III: Shuichiro Katsumura defeated Chikara with the Jumping Cross Armbreaker (7:25).
2. Ganpuro Special Mixed Tag: American Balloon & Sayaka Obihiro defeated Kenta Hattori & Ai Shimizu when Obihiro pinned Shimizu with the Bath (10:09).
3. G-COSMOS 2016 in Prince: Takafumi Ito defeated Rionne Fujiwara with a Crooked Headscissors (10:30).
4. Double Main Event I: Shota & Mitomi Masayuki defeated Yukihiro Abe & Shinichiro Tominaga when Shota pinned Tominaga with a Kido Clutch (16:07).
5. Double Main Event II – Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling Raising An Army: Osamu Namiguchi & Kenso Ohka defeated Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari when Ohka pinned Imanari with a Spear (12:24).

The show began with Osamu Namiguchi welcoming everyone to Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling. He said the theme of Shin Ganpuro is major pro wrestling and the main event would prove that. All of the regular Ganbare☆Wrestling matches happening before the main event were just toilet breaks as far as he was concerned. Ken Ohka stormed out and said he will show Namiguchi what the real Ganpuro is like in the main event.

Namiguchi had a big surprise in store for Ohka. The second member of Shin Ganpuro was revealed to be KENSO! However, KENSO came out to Ohka’s entrance music and wore matching gear. He is now Kenso Ohka! Not only did KENSO steal Ohka’s gimmick but he stole his finisher as well when he pinned Yumehito Imanari with the Spear. KENSO calls it a major Spear that is completely different from the fake one Ken Ohka does. Shuichiro Katsumura unexpectedly came out to confront Shin Ganpuro. He doesn’t see himself as a Ganpuro wrestler but he likes it here and won’t stand for this copycat coming in to ruin things. He invited Ken Ohka & Imanari to come train with him in his gym. Ohka said that Ganpuro stands for Ken Ohka, Ganpuro stands for Yumehito Imanari and Ganpuro stands for Shuichiro Katsumura. Together they will fight against Shin Ganpuro!

Kenta Hattori & Ai Shimizu both felt sorry for American Balloon’s sagging man boobs. Balloon’s man boobs came in handy when he used them to stop Shimizu from giving Sayaka Obihiro the Kamikaze. Obihiro then rolled Shimizu over for the win. Ohka was critical of Shimizu losing the match and encouraged her to try harder for her next match. Ohka said by the time Shimizu’s Ganpuro trial series is done she will become a worthy pro wrestler. Her next match in this series will be against Shota.

Ganpuro will run a special 15th Anniversary show for Ken Ohka at Shin-Kiba 1st RING on 22nd December. Ohka has a certain opponent in mind that he is eager to wrestle against but cannot guarantee if he can even negotiate with him. Imanari wants to put together a special women’s match for the show. His original idea was Bambi & Manami Kanda Vs Viper and somebody else. However it seems that Viper is unavailable on that date. Ohka promised Imanari that he will find two beautiful wrestlers to take on Bambi & Kanda.


Sasadango Ill, Kawamura Injured, Shin Ganbare Created

October 26, 2016

My best wishes go out to Super Sasadango Machine for a healthy recovery. He was taken off last Sunday’s Korakuen Hall show with poor health as the reason. A few days later DDT announced that a check up in a hospital found out he is suffering from a mild heart disease. His physician said rest is necessary and he will not be able to wrestle again until further notice. Some of the card changes as the result of this can be seen below.

Tokyo BASEMENT MON☆STAR

1. Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling Raising An Army: Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari Vs Osamu Namiguchi & X

The folks at Ganbare☆Wrestling had some time to relax after their successful Korakuen Hall debut but now a familiar threat has returned in new clothing. Osamu Namiguchi suddenly announced this week he is creating his own pro wrestling group called Shin Ganbare☆Wrestling (シン・ガンバレ☆プロレス)! The use of Shin (シン) in this name does not mean “new”, it means “thin” as in “Thin Godzilla” from the new kaiju movie. Namiguchi thinks Ganpuro is fake like Hollywood’s Godzilla but Shin Ganpuro will be pure just like “Thin Godzilla”. Shin Ganpuro’s debut will take place on 12th November in Tokyo BASEMENT MON☆STAR at the same time as the normal Ganpuro’s scheduled show. It will only consist of one match and Namiguchi challenged Ken Ohka & Yumehito Imanari to a tag team match. Namiguchi has a mystery partner for the occasion. Ohka accepted and the match will also technically be the main event of the normal Ganpuro show.

ohka-onita

After months of preparation the day finally came for Ken Ohka and Ganbare☆Wrestling. Ohka had taken a page out of Atsushi Onita’s book by promising to retire if today’s show had failed to sell out. Thankfully the promotion’s first show in Korakuen Hall turned out to be a success with over a 1,000 fans in attendance. Ohka took big risks in the ring as well as out of it. The main event was a No Rope Barbed Wire Street Fight Tornado 8-Man Tag Team Death Match with Ohka’s team versus Onita’s team. Those two fought each other while chaos reigned around them. Shota was put through a table by an Onita Piledriver. Yumehito Imanari & Mitomi Masayuki gave Onita a Double Brainbuster onto a barbed wire board. Imanari then brought in a barbed wire bat to use on Onita’s team. Ohka took his punishment and got the crowd to rally behind him. An opening came when Ohka ducked under Onita’s red mist. Osamu Namiguchi was blinded instead! Ohka gave Namiguchi the Fire Thunder Bomb but Hideki Hosaka stopped the pin. Ohka then hit the Flame Spear and this time there was nobody there to stop him.

ohka-mist-namiguchi

After the match Namiguchi demanded Onita to face him but Onita told him it’s enough. Onita invited Ohka to come over to the next FMW show on 24th November and congratulated him on a successful show. Namiguchi said he wasn’t convinced and he will crush Ganpuro but Onita ignored him and began spraying water everywhere. When that was over Ohka had some important announcements to make. He is getting married and he will also become a father in December!

fujita-marriage

Saki Maemura/Fujita had her first match back from retirement and one of her opponents was her ex-husband Minoru Fujita. Madoka and Bambi were also involved playing the role of their step-children. The crowd booed whenever Minoru attacked Saki. At one point somebody in the crowd yelled “Mom!” to motivate Saki. It looked to be all over when Minoru gave her the Tombstone Piledriver. But Bambi turned on Minoru when she stopped the pin with a Shining Wizard! Madoka then gave Minoru the Ranhyei and Saki hit a low altitude Frankensteiner for the three count. After the match Saki told Minoru there is nothing she regrets from their relationship. She’s thinks wrestling is very good so Minoru should continue doing it until he’s dead. Minoru understood. A year ago he came into Ganpuro spitting venom but over time he learned to work hard for his wrestling. He doesn’t know what lies ahead but he’ll make sure to do something his and Saki’s children will be proud of.

tominaga-asahi

Shinichiro Tominaga won Shiori Asahi’s respect with their match together. They were only in K-DOJO together for a brief amount of time before Tominaga quit and moved over to Union Pro. Asahi told him that today might not be the end of their story. If Tominaga is motivated to come back to K-DOJO some day then Asahi will be there waiting for him.

katsumura-ito

With all of the chaos happening elsewhere on the show it was nice to have something more straightforward. That’s where Shuichiro Katsumura and Takafumi Ito came in. Katsumura kept trying to lock in the Cross Armbreaker but Ito did what he could to break away. Finally Katsumura applied the move with nowhere for Ito to go. Ito never tapped out but the referee had to stop the match for his safety. Katsumura was declared the winner although Ito was dissatisfied with the result.

ishii-shootingstar

Keisuke Ishii decided to pull out something special for his first match against Yukihiro Abe in years. Ishii won the match with a Shooting Star Press! It was crooked but it did the job. Ishii said the show’s theme was surprise so that was his surprise.

ganpuro-gatoh

The opener was a showcase for Ganpuro’s women as Aoi Ishibashi & Ai Shimizu took on Emi Sakura & “Kotori” from Gatoh Move. Shimizu almost won with a Fisherman Suplex on “Kotori” but she kicked out of the pin. “Kotori” held Shimizu back while Sakura got the three count on Ishibashi with La Magistral Cradle.

shibata-royale

A dark match Battle Royal was held featuring the colourful cast of misfits and oddities that have wrestled in Ganpuro during its existence. Fumihito Kihara and Naoshi Sano focused on fighting each other from the moment the bell rang. Both of them continued fighting each other. Choun-Shiryu tried to Headbutt Mr. No but only hurt himself doing so. American Balloon used his massive man boobs to block Mr. No’s Headbutt much to everyone’s disgust. As the eliminations piled up Dr. Kiriko grabbed Balloon and force fed him some mystery medicine to make him faint. Mars Spector cleared the ring until it was down to just him and Shibata. A missed kick from Spector sent him over the top rope and Shibata knocked him off to be the last man standing. Shibata’s prize for winning is one wish to be granted by Ken Ohka within reason.

1. Abe-chan And Director Imanari: Yukihiro Abe defeated Yumehito Imanari with the Isamuashi Zan (8:26).
2. Ganbare☆Wrestling Public Inspection! Unidentified Hong Kong Police Corps Invasion!: Hong Kong International Women’s Police Man (Ai Shimizu) defeated Hong Kong International Police Man (Choun-Shiryu) and Hong Kong Domestic Bank Robbery Man (Atsushi Maruyama) when Women’s Police Man pinned both Police Man and Bank Robbery Man with a Double Brainbuster (9:30).
3. The Road To Ganpuro Korakuen “G” Vs “K” Special Tag Match: Shinichiro Tominaga & Tigger Bedscene defeated Shiori Asahi & Marines Mask IV when Tominaga submitted Mask with the Just Facelock (11:10).
4. Ganbare☆Wrestling Vs Tsukaisute-gun: Osamu Namiguchi, GENTARO & Shibata defeated Ken Ohka, Shota & Chikara when Namiguchi pinned Shota with the Lanakila-X (14:49).

The currently named Tsukaisute-gun (Disposable Army) were victorious over Ganbare☆Wrestling in the main event. Chikara wanted a fair fight and offered a handshake before the match but GENTARO attacked him instead. There was a ringside brawl but in the end Ken Ohka and Chikara were held back and forced to watch Osamu Namiguchi pin Shota. They were then put in Sharpshooters while Namiguchi taunted Ohka. Namiguchi also had a surprise for everyone. “Wild Thing” played and Atsushi Onita appeared! Onita talked to Ohka about Ganpuro’s first Korakuen Hall show on 2nd October. Onita brought up the possibility of him against Ohka happening on the show. Ohka excitedly agreed to it although it wasn’t booked. All that is confirmed for now is Onita will be at the Korakuen show. Ohka was then asked what will happen if the show does not sell out. Ohka said he will quit Ganbare☆Wrestling!

The semi-main event was the last piece of research Shinichiro Tominaga needed for his upcoming match with Shiori Asahi. He got the win when he caught Marines Mask IV with the RKO in mid-air then tapped him out with the Just Facelock. Tominaga said he now knows all he needs to beat Asahi and he’ll show off his research on 2nd October.

Hong Kong Domestic Police Man was supposed to be in Match #2 but never showed up. Hong Kong Domestic Bank Robbery Man took his place. There was a lot of nonsense that I can’t make out because the translation says Hong Kong International Police Man over and over. The female one pinned the other two when she reversed a Double Brainbuster. Two two men were unmasked after the match and revealed to be Choun-Shiryu and Atsushi Maruyama.

Yumehito Imanari Vs Yukihiro Abe was a match between two good friends. When Imanari first entered the wrestling industry it was as a cameraman filming a documentary about Abe. It was a matc neither wanted to lose. At one point Imanari yelled “I will not shake” after taking Chops from Imanari. However Abe was having fun and yelled at Imanari to be more creative. Abe scored the win and was greeted by Ohka afterwards. Ohka told him he found his opponent for the Korakuen show. Out came Keisuke Ishii form DDT! Ohka noted that Abe has never beaten Ishii but does have two time limit draws against him. He is the perfect choice of a senior wrestler for Abe to wrestle.

It was announced that Minoru Fujita will graduate from Ganbare☆Wrestling at the 2nd October Korakuen Hall show. He wanted Bambi to team with him for his last match. It was decided their opponents will be Madoka and Fujita’s ex-wife Saki Maemura! She retired back in 2009 and married Fujita a year later but they divorced in 2015. She will even use Saki Fujita as her ring name! Ken Ohka said in order to turn Ganpuro into a major company like WWE they should allow family problems to be settled in the ring.

5. Special 6-Man Tag Team Match: Osamu Namiguchi, Shibata & GENTARO defeated Ken Ohka, Shota & Mitomi Masayuki when Namiguchi pinned Shota with the Lanaila-X (16:45).

GENTARO surprised everyone in Ganbare☆Wrestling by joining forces with Osamu Namiguchi. GENTARO was working with Ganpuro as an official wrestling counselor for the roster but now he is helping Namiguchi prove his superiority over the company. They along with Shibata were able to do that in the 6-Man Tag main event. Shibata trapped his former Enjo-gun partner Mitomi Masayuki in a Cross Armbreaker while GENTARO did the same to Ken Ohka. That gave Namiguchi all the time in the world beat Shota with the Lanakila-X. Namiguchi added insult to injury by stepping on both Ohka and Imanari to celebrate while Shibata filmed it with his GoPro camera. Namiguchi then kicked Ohka while calling him a disposable wrestler who is only getting a KO-D Tag Team Title shot at Sumo Hall because of KAI. He said he might show up at Ganpuro’s Korakuen Hall show so he can see the company in its final days and tell them “Thank you for the good memories!” Namiguchi had crawled up from the bottom sipping mud to become a pro wrestler. He’s been kicked and beaten but guys like him, GENTARO and Shibata all know how it feels to be a pro wrestler unlike the people in Ganpuro who try to hog the glory. When they left, Ohka got back to his feet and was upset by the accusations. Ohka likes pro wrestling and he supports pro wrestling. Ganpuro is his wrestling life and he has precious support from guys like Shota, Masayuki and Shinichiro Tominaga to back him up. On 2nd October at Korakuen Hall Ohka will crush Namiguchi because Ganbare☆Wrestling is a major sport!

Ai Shimizu received a warm applause for her first match since getting married to DDT announcer Mic Inoue. Yumehito Imanari congratulated her before their tag match but then used his speech as an excuse to to flirt with Emi Sakura. She was left insulted by his lines and began the attack to start the match. Sakura then took pause to congratulate Shimizu before going back to attacking Imanari who wouldn’t take her seriously. Imanari was left to regret his behavior when Sakura was able to put him in a Romero Special. Shinichiro Tominaga later finished the job with a Reverse DDT and the JK. Sakura said she was mortified by Imanari’s behavior but he did show some ability out there. Imanari proclaimed his love for her and thinks them getting married would be the best news in pro wrestling. Shimizu was impressed at how fast men seem to fall for Sakura and she should be happy. Sakura was just annoyed by the whole thing.

Ohka approached Tominaga after his match to announce his opponent at Korakuen Hall. Tominaga will face Shiori Asahi from K-DOJO! Tominaga has a brief history with Asahi going back to his college wrestling club days. Five years later he now has a chance to see how he’s grown in comparison.

In the opening match Yukihiro Abe was given a chance to have some fun after spending months as an angst ridden sidekick to Minoru Fujita. He came out wearing a Haruhi Suzumiya costume to fit in with his opponent Rainbow Kawamura. However the match became less friendly when both wrestlers pulled each other’s wigs off and threw them at each other. Abe applied a Sleeper Hold but Kawamura pulled out an adult manga to distract him and escape. There was more nonsense with Abe getting stripped down to his blue striped underwear as the match progressed. Kawamura sprayed him in the face with disinfectant but during a scramble of pinning holds Abe got the three count with a Backslide he calls the Endless Eight. Thankfully this Endless Eight only lasts three seconds. After the match Abe told everyone that cosplaying and being a transvestite are two different things. He was also in a rush because he wanted to go to Comiket and buy a fanzine from his favourite writer.
