Actar in Akihabara

February 11, 2010

The first of possibly a number of videos, chronicling my experince in the land of Anime to Figures and beyond. (^.^)

What better way to start than to show you guys a snippet of my time in Akihabara – The fabled land of Otaku… (Day 1 and 2 of my trip)

This video focuses more on the stores of Akihabara and proves that Akihabara really is, Otaku heaven. I mean… WOAH. And that was just one store.

While the video only shows the inside of Radio Kaikan, more details of the places and the various stores I visited, like Gamers, Toranoana, Animate and more, along with accompanying pictures, can be seen by clicking the ‘Actar in Japan’ tab. (^.^)

Who would have guessed that Figma would enter into the K-On! franchise as well? I for one didn’t. (^.^)

And Nanoha Month Begins

February 3, 2010

The tip of the iceberg. The drizzle before the rain and the rain before the storm. To begin what I kinda dub ‘Nanoha Month’ (Even though there’s going to be a ton of K-On! and Macross stuff as well), is Figma Nanoha Movie First Version.

…and open the flood gates for already, the most expensive month this year. Why? Just wait and see. (^.^;)

On a side note:

I’m at a complete loss with my review planning. Would like to review Figma Yui this weekend and leave Figma Nanoha Movie First version, which I just got today, till next week. I think I’ll also leave the Figma Nanoha School Uniform Version till next week as well…

…and don’t even talk about my Japan Trip videos which I would like to get up and running as quickly as possible… I’m about halfway done editing through the mountain of footage that I took.

Last but not least, I just chose the prize for the upcoming contest that has been in planning for ages. It’s a prize of EPIC proportions that can easily become a prized possession in any Anime Collector’s collection, not to mention, cost a pretty penny as well.

(Disclaimer: Prize identity subject to change, though unlikely.)
