OMG YESTERDAY WAS THE BEST DAY EVER! I met Hideo Baba in person and I was starstrucked. I don’t even remember my handshake with him D: and I was shaking the whole time and even before the signing session. He was really cheerful and a very friendly person. And if you saw this post, I was contemplating on which game I wanted him to sign because I don’t know if there’s a limit to a number of items that can be signed. He was signing for a guy before me (he brought a 360’s Vesperia) when he spotted my Tales of Symphonia and exclaimed “Ah! SYMPHONIA!”. I think I’m the only one who brought Symphonia but I may be wrong. I’ve got people who asked me where I got my copy and how it brings back so much memories for them. In the end I handed him Tales of Symphonia and hold on to Tales of Xillia but then he said “oh and this too” (ああ、こちらも) and he took my Xillia! \(ʘ‿ʘ)/ With my horrible Japanese, I manage to tell him that I really love the ” Tales of ” series and he thanked me. Next, he asked for two posters from the staff and signed them too and then it’s photo time with him and guest cosplayer Aza as Milla Maxwell. She didn’t speak much but she was holding Tipo for Baba-san which he carried with him everywhere went. After the photo taking, we thanked each other a millionth times :D Overall, I really, really enjoy my day at the convention, being my first time there and my meeting with Hideo Baba-san. He even said that he might come back again next year for Tales of Xillia 2 so I’m really looking forward to that. What a great way to celebrate Symphonia’s 10th anniversary by having it autographed by the man himself! Happy 10th anniversary Tales of Symphonia! *:・゚✧ \(⌒▽⌒)/*:・゚✧
