2013 Japan Trip Highlights and Acquisitions!

January 15, 2014

In a brilliant attempt to circumvent me running out of steam doing a day-by-day recount of my trip, this time, I’ll be writing just one post featuring only the juicy bits – Akihabara, Comiket (doujins) and more!

I’ll organize this post by sections that go in chronological order. At the end of the recount, will be a section that is dedicated to all the acquisitions that I got during my trip.

Without further ado, here we go!

(Warning! Image intensive and somewhat NSFW. Also, the changing aspect ratio of the pictures is due to the fact that a number of them were taken with different cameras.)

Pokemon X and Y is Here!

October 12, 2013

Image00001

Yup, it’s finally October 12th and I’ve just picked up a brand spanking new 3DS XL to go with my copy of Pokemon Y. It’s been ages since I purchased my DS Lite and I think it’s high time for an upgrade. This is also the very first hand-held console I own that has a special design on it.

So far, I’m just over an hour into the game and man, have there been a ton of changes and improvements since the good old GBA days of FireRed and Emerald (skipped over the DS titles). Customizable avatars? Full 3D battles? This is simply phenomenal. Bizarrely enough, the one thing that I can’t get enough of is the ability to sit on chairs and beds. If I had to nitpick, I really do wish there was a way to control the camera. Sometimes, the game locks you into a very awkward perspective that makes it hard to view certain areas.

Honestly, having played the original Red and Blue versions when I was in primary school, I never would have imagined that games could get this advanced within my lifetime.

Also, am I the only one who always chooses the female avatar when playing games?

…What? Stop looking at me like that! (^.^;)

Yup, ‘signature’ as in ‘autograph’, not ‘outstanding’.

I’m unequivocally late in posting these, but as the adage goes, “It’s better late than never!”. So, here are some of the signatures that I was fortunate enough to acquire at last year’s Anime Festival Asia 2012.

As a minor acquisitions update, this week, I went out of my way to purchase a Miku Tony Version figure because Hinata has one. Yes, I’m that hopeless.
