An Indoor Amusement Park In Japan?

All that I can remember of this dream is that it seemed to have taken place in Japan, and I seemed to be inside an indoor amusement park and/or something like that.

There were people from various countries there on tours, vacationing, et cetera; but most of the workers and people that I saw were from Japan (Japanese), but there were a few from maybe The United States and several other countries.

It felt somewhat like a mall in its design, at some point I passed a dimly lit area that looked like a cinema/arcade, and they had Star Wars themed laser tag so I joined a laser tag game.

They had a scoreboard that followed the rankings, there was a man who was overseeing our laser tag match, and I was easily winning the match even though I do not know much about Star Wars and I have never played laser tag before.

During the match I went through a door that led me back to the main areas, I tried to find the entrance, but I got lost because that door led to another part of the building and it had no door handle or anything.

*Sexual Content Warning*

I walked around and at some point I joined a tour group that that was being led by an attractive Japanese women with short brown hair, she could speak Japanese and English, during our tour of a few areas she would sometimes very briefly get naked and have sex with a Japanese man with short black hair until he would orgasm.

Oddly no one seemed to think that this was strange, and the woman would get dressed and continue the tour like nothing had happened; and this happened two or three times.

At some point I found the entrance to the Star Wars themed laser tag place, I went inside where I found the man over the match, and he told me that it was over and that I had gotten second place and the person who won had barely won even though I had accidentally left the match.

1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners got prizes so he took me to get my prize.

While I was getting my prize I met the 1st place winner, he was a man with light-color skin with short yellow hair, and I congratulated him and he gloated about his victory a bit.

I then left to continue exploring the assumed indoor amusement park and during this time I met some of my former classmates like my former male classmate BH and JS, and I met someone named Natalie and/or someone talked about her.

At some point I found a grocery store-like area that I started to explore, near the produce section I noticed the letters HBC and I saw a group of people with dark-color skin walking in the distance, and I wondered if HBC stood for Historically Black College; and I wondered if the group of people I saw were part of a college tour group from a HBC.

I then found some small free samples of various flavors of ice cream that I have never tried before, the containers were open and in mostly melted ice, and so some of the containers were completely melted.

I tasted two or three of the ice cream samples, I could taste them somewhat, but I can not remember the flavors though other than one maybe having caramel and/or butterscotch.

I then saw some tables with glazed cinnamon bun-like pastries, and two Japanese women with long medium-to-dark color hair were sitting near.

I assumed that they were offering some free samples because some were just pieces while others were complete, and so I asked them but they only spoke and understood Japanese.

We struggled to try to understand each other with hand signs, the spoke Japanese, and I tried speaking English and some French and some Spanish; but this was not working.

I did taste a sample and I thanked them, and then I left because we all were confused and could not understand each other mostly; they were making facial expressions of confusion.

But I woke up as I walked away.

The end,

The Rising Of The Shield Hero (Season 1)

What is it?

The 2019 anime television show The Rising Of The Shield Hero (Season 1).

What is it about?

This is how Crunchyroll describes this anime television show:

Iwatani Naofumi, a run-of-the-mill otaku, finds a book in the library that summons him to another world.

He is tasked with joining the sword, spear, and bow as one of the Four Cardinal Heroes and fighting the Waves of Catastrophe as the Shield Hero.

Excited by the prospect of a grand adventure, Naofumi sets off with his party.

However, merely a few days later, he is betrayed and loses all his money, dignity, and respect.

Unable to trust anyone anymore, he employs a slave named Raphtalia and takes on the Waves and the world.

But will he really find a way to overturn this desperate situation?

My Thoughts

This anime (animated) television show was better than I had expected, I thought that it was just going to be a generic anime that I would get tired of, but this show surprised me starting with the first episode.

I like how things progressed at first, which is what you would expect if someone was following video game rules, but like many other similar shows it started to stagnate and slow down.

At that point I started to get frustrated with the show at times and it started to annoy me, not enough to hate it, but it did hurt my overall opinion of the show; but not bad enough to stop me from watching another season if they come out with one.

I just hope that the show will pick back up, and stop the stagnation.
