Anime merchandise acquisition update once again as the beginning of February looms near.
– Spirit Evolving EmperorGreymon
– Yamato’s Valkyrie Display Stand
– Max Factory’s 1/8 Scale Asahina Mikuru MIKURU BEAMMMMMMMMMMMM Ver.
– Macross Plus Movie Edition Artbook
– Bamboo Blade Artbook
Let’s see… Regarding EmperorGreymon/KaiserGreymon currently, due to a sudden bout of serious nostalgia, I’m on a quest to complete my (Japanese) Digimon figure collection. Still have quite a number to go, and I’m financially DRAINED.
I finally bought that Mikuru figure by Max Factory that has been on my To Get list since 2008.
Got that stand to display my YF-19 alongside my YF-21:
Lastly, bought a couple of artbooks as well. For Anime that I love, I try to get the artbooks as well for the character designs/bios and episode guides. In particular, I think that the Macross Plus artbook is simply brilliant. For a huge fan of the OVAs and Movie like me, the artwork of all the mecha, characters and sets is simply phenomenal to look at.
Other things that are happening:
– Next month will be CHINESE NEW YEAR. Not sure how many of you guys know of this holiday, but it’s a major holiday in these parts, celebrated by most Chinese. Can’t wait for the food, family and Ang Pao (Red packets with money given to children by family)!
– Work in University is starting to pick up… After next week, group projects, individual projects and the like will take off in full force. I think my brain will explode with all the time managing that I will have to do. 1. Study 2. Projects 3. Watch Anime 4. Earn Money for Figures 5. Review Figures 6. Write Articles for Blog. Urgh… I really hate sacrificing something for another, be it studies for hobby or vice versa…
