AFA 2013 Loot
Yup, not much loot this year >< I’m sort of, not so into anime that I need to own lots of merchandise. And anyway, I don’t really follow any of the newer stuff ><
Mostly bought pokemon keychains for my 3DS pouch ^^ Got the pokemon cloth also because it was really cute and my specs need a cute cloth to go with its cute cover ><
The little Izumo badge was given to me by the lovely rubiwitch ^3^/ <3<3<3
Public holiday today so…went to Kino ><
More Fables \o/ Pewdiepie has been playng “A Wolf Among Us” recently and it looks so fun ;A;
Was originally just gonna get 5 then I saw 6 had a storyline titled “Happily Ever After” so I had to get it too ><
And yes! I was right! Bigby and Snow finally reunited and got married \(;A;)/
And I finally found the 4th volume of Invincible Iron Man ^^
The sequel to Princess Knight. The tone s sort of similar to the previous series. It has comedy, rather interesting plotline and super fast pacing ><
Last 3 volumes \o/ and also ;A;
And the last 2 books of Howl’s Moving Castle :D
Kuroshitsuji Musical 2 DVD
AHHH IT’S FINALLY HERE!!!!! 8D
Actually arrived earlier than I expected. Received the shipping notice sometime…last week? I used SAL so was expecting a minimum of 3 weeks (according to the e-mail) Actually ordered with tracking but couldn’t see to get any tracking info?
But came home yesterday to a missed delivery note! My mum helped me to collect it in the afternoon. Don’t know how I managed to survive the whole day at work >w<
The front and back ^^
Have 2 copies now because I helped rubiwitch order hers too XD
All the things.
-A slip at the back with the usual DVD info. (Running time etc.)
-Plastic case which held the DVD and booklet
-Booklet which is apparantly a First Press special? (ordered from CDJapan)
2 DVDs. One is the actual musical performance and the other is all the extras (OMG please let there be the one where Yuya dropped the letter opener just before “Checkmate” XD)
The booklet is basically mostly a smaller version of the programme booklet without all the ads and stuff.
The first page includes the same illustration as the programme booklet. An image of Sebby and Grell, drawn by Yana Toboso.
As far as I can tell, the only difference is that there are 6 pages of lyrics for all the songs with some images from the musical. The other stuff, (Cast profiles, interviews, rehearsal images) are the same as in the programme booklet ^^
And yes, I did go all the way to Japan for the actual performance (with rubiwitch). We went on like the 2nd night. haha, I remember rushing to book the tickets the day they opened the online booking.
Been waiting forever for this. I think I preordered like a month or so after the performance? CDJapan didn’t even have the release date or preview image out yet then XP
Can’t wait to watch it XD
STGCC 2013 Loot
Anyway, proper loot post time ><
Like half the stuff I got from the event was birthday presents. And got everything on the 2nd day. Because Day 1 I was walking around in the Belle ballgown. Had to carry Chip and my phone so couldn’t be bothered to bring a wallet as well. Just walked around thinking of what I would want to buy the next day ><
Then of course Day 2 was also my birthday so yea ^^
The real presents I got from shikiftw, rubiwitch and other friends ><
Sentimental circus stuff of course coz I freaking love Shappo >w< There was a mini backpack which is unfortunately a bit too big for my MSD Bri. And also a whindchime, apparently they got it from the lucky draw thing 0w0
Wrapping the graphic novel came in. lolol
It was a total surprise when I unwrapped it and saw Black Orchid >w< It was very obviously a book but I though it was some artbook or something. Or maybe even the Sentimental Cicus book. Yes, there is one. I think it’s a storybook.
Apparently they got it because rubiwitch remembered I like Neil Gaiman >< Actually been meaning to get this since my colleague reccommended it since the art is nice so yay >w<y One less book to buy ><
…1 week+ later and I still haven’t read it yet ”’OTL
The other present I got was from my friend who was working at the event
So the tofu oyako creators were at the event and since my friend works for Play Imaginative, she got me the event-exclusive(?) figure and got them to sign it for me >w<
Never gotten a signed anything before OMG. And it’s so cute >w<
Went into the event area to meet her so then walked around to buy some stuff I wanted.
Saw that they were selling this so of course I had to get it! XD They also gave a free hugeass poster :D
Gonna be having an Iron Man movie marathon this Saturday with some friends now that I have all the movies ^^
Finally got myself a Tokidoki shirt >< Regret not buying more because they were only $15 each ;x; And OMG had hard time just deciding which design to buy. They were allll soo CUTE!!! >w<
A little later got this from nanachikaze. They were giving it out at one of the stalls so she helped us take a few :D
So today, went to Takashimaya. Supposed to be treating my parents to lunch/dinner since I got my first pay but…we ended up just eating at Food Republic so I didn’t get to OTL
>~< Will treat them to some fancyass restaurant next week >A<
So anyway, yea you know how this goes. Takashimaya = Kinokuniya =…
Finally found this! >< Been wanting to read it ever since I watched the Ghibli version but everytime I went was always just Castle in the Sky onwards ><
I…still haven’t read Fables 3 I bought the last time >~>;;;
Sandman~ =w= Not a huge fan of the art but I LOVE the story >w<
Last volume ;~; It’s ok, there’s still 2 volumes of short stories and the Artbook uwu And also all the Figuarts XD
…hmmm I remember getting a One Piece 18 also but it seems to be missing at the moment…
Actually went to the magazines side to contemplate buying the Figure Japan issue with the MadoKami figurine but decided not to get in the end. The came across this. Thought would be nice to buy since there would be maid!Izumo inside. Then realized it’s the latest chapter that hasn’t even been scanlated yet 0w0
OMG no regrets getting it even though there’s no furoku ><
Made me have a new cosplan. Dammit. My Rin don’t even have to change but I have to make a whole new outfit >3<
Gonna bring this to the beach outing on Friday for my lovely Shiemi (nanachikaze) to translate~ 0w0 <3
And another Doctor Who book~ =w=
Kino post: “OMG I actually still read manga” Edition
Or “OMG an actual book” Edition
Or “Freaking finish blogging about your Japan Trip already gdi” Edition
Saw it and had to get it. Like all the scanlations stop at the chapters in Vol. 9.
And OMG why did I even start reading this in the first place ;A; Remember I started when it was on OneManga (back when there was actually manga there) and it already stated in the synopsis that this series was about unrequited love. But I was like “Well I like the author so meh, I’ll just try reading this” and now…… QQAAQQQQQQQQ
I like One Piece. There are currently 66 volumes.
/looks at bookshelf
Wanna complete my Ouran collection ><
1 more book to the end~
Been wanting to try this series. Kinda like the art and the fashion 0w0
Don’t really know about this series but it looks cute, and it’s Tezuka manga, and it’s only 1 book so =w=
Viz why you hiatus KHR?!?!?!?! ;;A;;;;;;
Bought this volume coz it’s the start of the Ten Year Arc. I think this is where they stopped coz I haven’t seen any volumes past this one =3=
4 more books to the end ;3;
Finally the 3rd volume. Kept seeing only volume 4 every time I went >3<
OMG an actual book which is not Doctor Who-related or a translated light novel ><
Recently don’t follow many book series. Mainly this one and Percy Jackson >< Dunnoe anyone got any good books to reccommend (please no vampire series =A=)
J-Trip 2013 Day 1
So on 11 May went on a holiday to Japan~ >w<
Was actually supposed to go to the US but something came up and my mum ran out of leave so Japan it was.
Managed to get rubiwitch to tag along too XD Our second time going to Japan together. This time we shared a room so HONEYMOON >w0~<3 If only her Syaoran wig had been collected in time, we could have had a Sakura Syaoran honeymoon ;~;
Iron Man 3
So during the weekend, I managed to watch Iron Man 3 twice :3
Yup, painted my nails the day before ^^ Didn’t manage to take a pic of the other hand but the thumb has the number 3 in red with yellow outline on a black background. The other fingers were just red. And brought chibi Iron Man along of course.
In the corner, you can see Shiki trying to grab my finger with Iron Man’s head painted on it >x>
The 2 Iron Man fans. haha for once I was the one spazzing in the cinema >< Wore our Iron Man badges from AFA too XD
And then took a pic in front of the huge Iron Man 3 images outside the theatre XP
On Sunday, went to the same cinema to watch it again :P This time with my parents
And chibi Iron Man of course.
Then went shopping for a bit.
Bought a new sling bag :3 Been looking for a nice leather slingbag to replace my old Adidas one ><
And new shoes. Because. =w=
They’re maroon :3
And so of course since we were in Orchard we had to go to Kinokuniya. Of course. And then
Yup. I saw it in Kino on Sat. Then went back on Sun to buy it ._.
Yea >< Will have a seperate post about the contents.
So thoughts about Iron Man 3…
Iron Man Mark 7 nendoroid
Finally got my Iron Man nendoroid. OMg remember I preordered him back when I was in SuZhou He was supposed to be released in February but got delayed OTL
Got the SMS for collection yesterday and immediately went to the shop today XD
Comes with the special stand, normal clear stand and a few hand and effect parts
Also comes with a suction cup part to stick to walls or whatever so it really looks like he’s flying around. It’s not really strong enough to support the weight though :/
The above picture is what happens every time you try
Underneath the helmet. He doesn’t have any hair ><
Apparently the inner head is removable to swap different characters in but so far I’m having a problem. His ears can’t get out with those 2 discs at the side covering them and I haven’t been able to remove them.
Also from the above pictures, the helmet top has 2 grooves so that the faceplate can slide up and down. Unfortunately, the grooves on my faceplate are spaced a little too near so only 1 groove can fit in >~<
Well, overall he is kinda fun to pose. Some bits tend to fall off of course, like the effect parts. Paid $50.80 for him coz I preordered from La Tendo.
My current Iron Man corner. Nendo Iron Man’s back in the box though. Gonna bring him to my friend’s house tomorrow ><
