Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Premieres Today in Japan
July 06, 2009, 07:19 AM
Tokyo, Japan is the site today of the premiere of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Reuters is reporting that thousands of fans, many dressed in costume, lined up today for the premiere event. One fan is quoted as saying: "I was very disappointed when the release was postponed last year,"
said Yuta Endo, a 19-year-old university student, who watched the fifth
installment five times. "I was so looking forward to it and worked really hard to get a ticket for the screening today." Other fans were unconcerned that the popularity of Harry Potter had waned among some of their peers. "Some of my friends stopped reading the books after the fourth or
fifth installment," said Minori Wada, a 16-year-old student who said
she had read all the books. "But I will be a fan for ever."Endo said he was holding off reading the final volume of the series."I am scared to end it. I am not ready for it yet," he said.
We hope to have photos up from the premiere, stay tuned!

i have pictures from the premiere ^ I went to the place but I didn’t see the movie, I didn’t have tickets. Nobody knew if any of the cast would come either, maybe they didn’t come…The red carpet was inside the building and you could only enter if you had a ticket…-_-; but I took pictures of the people dressed up. It didn’t look to me like there were thousands of fans tho…^;

sorry that last one of luna is here
How can you be a fan of the series and wait so long to read the final installment?!?
I cannot wait to see the photos of the stars at the premiere; I am sure that the whole affair was lavish and enjoyable. :)
why do they get it so early, they have to translate it and they still get it before us.
Why does everyone else seem to get it earlier than those of us in the US? Grr! I don’t want to wait nine days.
Ah, well. I hope it’s brilliant, and that everyone enjoys it!
