The Longer I Wait…

…the more stuff I get to show off at once. Flimsy excuses for laziness notwithstanding, I have indeed accrued a sizable quantity of new items from various orders since the start of the new year, and I thought I’d take this chance to catalog them all before I start forgetting what is or is not “new,” per se.

Listed in no particular order:

  • Akiyama Mio figure by Alter
  • Fujibayashi Ryou prize figure by FuRyu
  • Alicia Melchiott and Isasa Gunther prize figures by Sega
  • Asahina Mikuru Waitress Version gashapon
  • Miles Edgeworth Ace Attorney Investigations for DS
  • Half-Minute Hero for PSP
  • Dead Space for Xbox 360
  • PSP 1000 with soft case
  • 10 miscellaneous PSP games
  • Omamori Himari Intro CD Oshichauzo!
  • Omamori Himari Ending CD BEAM my BEAM
  • Umineko no Naku Koro ni Characted CD 1
  • Omamori Himari manga volume 2
  • Neon Genesis Evangelion Perfect Collection
  • Animelo 2009 booklet
  • Autographed sketch by Summer Wars director Hosoda Mamoru

Not too shabby, if it’s not too presumptuous to say so.

September Loot

My “best” efforts to save money for larger purchases I plan to make are not proving quite as effective as I had envisioned.  Pity.

The plus in this dismal failure of my self-control is that I’ve made some new acquisitions.

September 2009 LootThe combination of trying not to buy any figures and being hopelessly unable to resist buying figures led to my purchasing several figmas, as they are traditionally less expensive than the PVC statue variety.  I got the Hatsune Miku figma from a sale at Lovelyduckie’s blog.  I was very fortunate in finding it, as I got an excellent deal AND free shipping on this only slightly used figure, which is in perfect condition.  I’m completely satisfied with the purchase, and I’d definitely recommend buying from her if you see something you want.

Kotobukiya’s Clannad Figures

First of all, to anyone who may have actually checked back from time to time, I do apologize for this last bout of inactivity.  Long story short, my life caught up to me for a while, and after that, updating the site simply fell out of my routine without my realizing it.  This does not mean, however, that I have been inactive in the pursuit of my oh-so-excellent otaku passions, and I have quite a few tales to tell from these last…er, seven months or so.  For the moment, though, I’d like to focus on a recent arrival.

Lo and behold…

Kotobukiya's Ibuki Fuuko

…Kotobukiya’s Ibuki Fuuko from Clannad!  I am a big fan of the visual novel company Key, and Clannad is certainly no exception.  The language barrier has thus far prevented me from playing the actual game, but I have seen both of the anime series, and they easily rank among my top favorites.  That being said, my acquisition of this particular character is quite significant to me, for you see…

Some New Goodies

First of all, allow me to apologize for the long delay.  School’s been kinda tough, and during my free time I’ve been, well, really lazy.  You know how it is: you start the daythinking you’re going to get all sorts of whatever done, and before you know it you’ve spent the whole day stitting around watching Maho Shojo Lyrical Nanoha, and those new figures and such and your camera are just so far away from your comfortable chair.  There’s an upside, though: I get to showcase some cool new stuff all at once.  Let’s start with this:

The Lala Satalin Deviluke figure, by Good Smile Company.  Stunning.

Arisugawa Arisu Figure

My first order from HLJ arrived today: Solid Works’s figure of Arisugawa Arisu, from Kagihime Monogatari Eikyu Arisu Rondo.  As I was typing this, I looked up the figure on HLJ to see if I could get some relevant info to mention, only to discover that it is now on sale (at time of posting).  For 60% off of what I paid.  Thanks, HLJ. I was having such a hard time getting at the lint in my wallet with all that money in the way.
