…and with that, I’ve come to the end of my University education. The years just flew by and I am still in shock at how fast it felt (in retrospect). People say that dreams don’t always come true and that sooner or later, you’ll have to face cold, hard and harsh reality.
It’s 2015 and we can’t send our cars in for a hover conversion… Color me disappointed!
It’s that time of year again and this year’s AFA was a pretty phenomenal one, if I do say so myself.
Loot posts have now officially become the obligatory “I’m not dead yet!” posts! The days become busier and busier as I approach the second semester of my final year in University. But enough about that, let’s get on to the merchandise!
Everything after the jump!
A quadruple month update is finally here! Venture forth into the longer than usual update post as I share with you the stuff I got and my opinions on them! As I don’t really want to flood the front page with a barrage of pictures, do click on the button below to view the post in its entirety.
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.)
This school semester (sans-finals) is finally over and this time round, I took my first honors-level class on Japanese popular culture. After much contemplation, for my research paper, I decided to write on the inherent importance of moe-elements when it comes to character merchandise. It was a long and arduous process to see this paper to completion, but it was well worth it and exceedingly fun and educational.
Magical Girls aren’t Magical Girls without fearsome adversaries to fight. Thanks to Movic, our Madoka Figma figures can finally duel to the death with the bizarre, otherworldly and unconventionally designed Witches.
She’s here! The long awaited and highly anitcipated Figma Homura from the much loved (and loathed) Puella Magi Madoka Magica is finally available to the hoards of screaming Homu Homu fans.
Does she live up to all the hype? Can GSC do no wrong? Will she ever find her missing hat? Let’s find out.
I’m back after a long hiatus with another Madoka review! This time, we take a look at something rather unusual – a transforming plush toy of the cheese loving, head biting Witch of Sweets, Charlotte!
The best concept for a plush toy ever? Most definitely.
