won this thing in one of those impossible UFO-grabber vending machines.
There was a little girl who kept trying to win one of these things, she probably spent 5000¥ trying to get one - of course those machines have no ability to actually grab anything, such a scam. Well, long story short, after she ran out of money, she stepped back from the machine as she fished around for another 100¥ coin... I stepped in front of her, maneuvered the lil' grabber arm, but instead of trying to grab one, I noticed one in the back and figured I could 'knock' it over. It worked. The prize dropped out, I reached down and grabbed it, and turned to look at this lil' girls face in complete shock and awe. She looked at me, then looked at the bear, then back at me. I think her lip quivered a little bit. I just said "yasashii" (easy!), and walked away. She turned and ran to the change machine... A moment later I saw her trying to imitate my 'knock down' technique but none of the other bears were in a position to allow it. I had thought about giving her the damn thing, but actually it's the coolest teddy bear I've ever seen. Fuck off, it's mine!
Then, when I got home, I read the tag, noticed a website, and decided to check it out... my exact thoughts?
holy fucking shit!
