About This “Black Rock Shooter” Thing…

July 26, 2010

Well, the BRS OVA is out and I just watched it. I’ve been having doubts about Black Rock Shooter for quite awhile now. Sure the designs are nice, but as I said before, I cannot justify buying a figure just based on designs and I was waiting for the OVA to confirm whether or not I’ll be getting the Black Rock Shooter and Dead Master figures. So, the results are in…

My Birthday, New TV Set and Future Plans

July 15, 2010

Yui and Mio throwing a special concert, just for me., complete with fog machines~

As they say, another year older, another year wiser. Unfortunately, I cannot attest to this adage at all, because if I were wiser, I’d stop spending money on plastic crack. (^.^;)

This birthday, I finally replaced my old TV, which I have been using for about 5 years, with a brand new HD enabled one. But, the thing is, I will not be able to utilize the TV to its full potential as I have yet to purchase a Blu-Ray player… Mm… Gotta set my priorities straight.

While my actual Birthday was at the end of June, I waited this long before posting a ‘Birthday post’ as I wanted to wait till I had the TV up and running. This way, I could present to you my brand new TV set up in all it’s glory!

So, what do you think? How many figures/pieces of merchandise can you identify? (^.^) Do note that the watermark is covering up a couple of 1/60 Yamato VF-1s and a set of Evangelion themed UCC Coffee cans. Also wanted to perch my Revoltech MP Eva on the top of the TV like my previous one, but the TV was way too slim to accommodate the figure.

Regrettably, I don’t have a picture showing off my Birthday loot, so you’ll just have to trust me on this one. (^.^;)

– Megahouse Ranka Lee
– Dengeki G’s Festival w/ Kanade Dakimakura and Yuri Nendo Pucchi
– Getsumen to Heiki Mina Limited PS2 Box (did a review on this one already)
– 1/1 scale Kusagao Midori HandPuppet Special Ver. (Something that I’ve always wanted)
– Evangelion Film Clipping featuring this scene:

One of my favorite scenes from the movie, if I might add.

– Kamen Rider W Double Driver
– Kamen Rider W Metal Shaft
– Kamen Rider W Trigger Magnum
– Kamen Rider W Skull Magnum
– Kamen Rider W Stag Phone
– Kamen Rider W S.H.Figuarts Cyclone Set (seen in an earlier post)
– Kamen Rider W WFC Figures 01,02 and 03

A ton more loot coming later this month and the next… (a possible adoption perhaps!!!) Went way too overbored with the proxy again… Right now, I’m so short on cash that I had to cancel a multitude of orders, including Figma Saber Alter and Yamato’s YF-19… (TT.TT)

Photoshop Magic~

July 11, 2010

Evidently, someone has applied a photoshop makeover to one of the pictures I took at Comiket 77 of this Remilia Cosplayer. Well, that’s the internet for you. Don’t know whether it is an honor or an insult. At least they could have left the watermark. (^.^;)
