I’m back?
June 2, 2010

Sakura Haruno from Wandaba Style. I love how she has the exact same name as the Naruto character.

I haven’t been here in forever… over a month. The truth is, I have nothing to write about. It’s been a while since I’ve bought anything. I think the last thing I bought was Star Trek’s first season? I need to buy the rest of those. I’ve been pretty obsessed with Star Trek, it’s so fantastic. It really opened my mind to all these references I never saw before. And well, it’s just awesome. I love those “special” effects. I want to find more garbage old sci-fi stuff like that. :’D But then I worry that if I did, it might do to Star Trek what Star Trek did to Star Wars for me; shift my obsessions.

One other obsession I have right now is Pokémon. :D That started with Rumble, and I started playing that way back, before Christmas even, but I asked for Heart Gold for my birthday gift, now one whole month ago, and it’s a lot of good fun to be playing Pokémon again. The only thing is, I don’t have my own DS, I’m boring my sister’s, which is also often used by my Mum as well. Neither of them really use it that much… oh, until they bought a new game. So, I don’t have much chance to play anymore, guess I’ll wait until they get bored with their game. Well, only thing I really need to do is beat Red, but I still need to level up my Pokémon a lot.

I’m thinking maybe, to be able to play Pokémon, and maybe some other games too, I should get a GBA. :’D I used to have one, but I was stupid and sold it a couple years ago. And what did I buy with the money? An iPod Touch, and that makes it all the worse. I have a love/hate thing with Apple. Some crazy beautiful designs in the past, like the iBook Clamshell, the matching iMac and Power Macintosh G3s, and the G4s too. But then there are a few I think are REALLY UGLY (All in one Performa, I don’t know why I hate it but I just do.). Also, Mac OS uses weird keyboard shortcuts. I always forget how to do force quit, so I just press a bunch of buttons that I think bring up the dialog for force quit. FQ never really seems to work for me though, when I click “force quit” in the dialog, it just freezes. Mac OS, or at least 9 seems so unstable…

If you love Macs, fine, but I’ll never be able to stand them, completely.

I did buy an AirPort card though. <3 Finally. Too bad IE4.5 messes up nearly every page (I’ll have to restrict browsing to Reocities?) and iCab is insanely slow. I wonder how an Opera of the time would do. I like Opera. Not as much as Chrome, but it’s good.

Did Griffon Enterprise make a figure from Magical Meow Meow Taruto? It showed up in my Search Engine Terms… I couldn’t find anything though.

Speaking of figures, Kotobukiya’s Ruri should come out this month! :D Can’t wait!

New anime soon… I was kind of interested in Asobi ni Iku yo! but I am trying to read the manga and it feels kind of boring, but I don’t really like reading scanlations, it isn’t the same as having a book in your hand, that’s always better. I’ll at least try to watch the opening, I guess? If I remember.

I kind of want to buy some more doujinshi. But, I’m kind of afraid of a huge shipping cost from Mandarake. Last time, shipping cost more than the things I bought. But, one of the books was a collection of various stories, it was a lot thicker and heavier than the typical short doujin, they seem to usually be 24 or 28 pages. So, if I just bought those, maybe it would be okay. If I ordered some stuff from Mandarake, I would like to buy some of these too maybe. If I did, it’s like 50/50 chance I get a character I like. Alice is my absolute favourite, and I like Youmu and Yuyuko a lot too. I don’t really like the one of Youmu though. The other characters I don’t like at all, I really dislike Yukari. If I got Yukari then I’d have to use it. DESTROY YUKARI. :’D Chen is okay, I guess, and I don’t have any feelings positive or negative about Ran.

Anyway, tl;dr, as this post really is…

Star Trek is rad.

Pokémon is too.

Macintoshes sometimes are, except when they aren’t.

Touhou erasers.

animinitime!
April 25, 2010

Crowd photo~ yeah!

Con was… AWESOME. :’D I wish I could go back… there are hours left. :(

But it was fun while it lasted.

(more…)

animinitime schedule
April 15, 2010

Hooray, it’s posted! Well, I think it was posted yesterday, but I didn’t see. Anyway, this is probably what I’ll be doing. Green squares are basically just sit around, shop, see cosplayers, attempt to make a friend, idk. Also, I don’t know about the last two hours, if I’d be able to stay that long. I guess the closing ceremony is not that super important. XD I hope it will be fun and I hope I can enjoy it to its fullest potential. :)

Now, here are some Pikachu I drew. :’D

Random story, yesterday I was listening to my iPod, and my friend said, “I saw that.” like wanting to be the very best like no one ever was,was something to be ashamed of, because I was listening to 2.B.A. Master. But, I think she owns the CD. :’P Also, the day before that, I found a printed picture of a Pachiritsu. Even if he’s fourth gen, he’s kind of cute. :3

I don’t want to call it a rant…
April 5, 2010

‘Cos, I just made one, right… well, these aren’t really rants, more like expressions of annoyance. Or something. Idk, I’m just doing a fail job of covering it up… just as fail as the above picture fails at making sense. Keine with a Furby, Toro, and a squid? It’s a super cute picture though. :D

Anyway, tomorrow, I think you’ll be seeing a good post, my Mandarake gets, I hope will come…

TEXTp
April 1, 2010

My newest, most awful obsession. No, not TEXTp. No, not even this video that the screencap was taken from, but the series it’s comes from. Well, it’s not like that is in the actual thing, but yeah, whatever. It’s related. Well, more than that… moving on…

Would just love to say, TEXTp is love. I hope they keep it, but if not, I’ve been recording all my favourite stuff with Hypercam… ahaha. :P

I hate how people are calling it ASCII art though. :| I guess it sort of is, but idk…

Also, my stuff from Mandarake shipped today, I guess I’ll get it next week. I really regret making the purchase, I spent like $45 for two books (one 24 page doujin, and a 160p book which I guess is an anthology of manga and illustrations), a pencil board (that’s what I think it is lol…) and a keychain… but I can’t wait, ALICE~ <3

(yeah, it’s all touhou stuff. :P)

r-r-rant: another rant :3
March 21, 2010

This time, no, it’s not about hypocritical lolicon… have some Marisa anyway… well, okay not like she’s loli, but w/e moving on~

(and besides my last rant was about Daiki :P)

Okay, I just found out something terrible. :(

THEY WERE DELAYED. D:

Figutto Reimu and Marisa that is… I just found out, it’s really disappointing.

This means… my June orders will come to 10380!

Also, I was considering ordering Clayz Alice, but that would make it 18360.

Ugh… current order will mean like, $30 in custom tax, and with Alice too… I don’t want to think about it.

I guess, no Alice, and KOTOBUKIYA I CAN’T BELIEVE I’M SAYING THIS BUT DELAY RURI YOU GUYS NEVER DELAY ANYTHING IT’S OKAY IF YOU DO IT JUST THIS ONCE PLEASE OKAY?

my wig :O
March 16, 2010

So… I got my wig today… I don’t really know what to say about it. It’s okay, darker than I thought, but I guess it will do. Also, kind of messy, and a pain to put on. Although I probably don’t need to say it, I’m kind of turned off to buying more wigs. Even right now, I can still feel it on my head, lol.

It’s kind of funny to see it though… instead of normal brown hair, having very long purple hair. :’D

Also, about this photo… fail editing! :D

a trip to the post
March 2, 2010

Could this image be any more perfect? I had a box, I was running… plus Len is just awesome…

So… I went to the post office. :| It was not very good… ahaha…

Well, I got the package mailed, but it turns out my guess for the weight was super off… 350g? 576g! Ugh, nendoroids only weigh like 300g… does cardboard and bubblewrap and a bit of newspaper really weight that much? I had to run back home to get some more money… >____> Two walks… with hills. I was exhausted by the fourth way, at least it was the last. I guess its a lesson learnt… bring the whole wallet, and guesstimate better. XD

More Len goodness~ :D

(also, I do have good news, I’m very happy that Amiami is continuing their sale, as I have Reimu figutto ordered, I hope she comes out soon!)

(also I was able to buy a wig for cosplay, so I’m happy about that…)

k-on plush
February 6, 2010

…this is kind of embarassing.

‘Cos you know, I just made a K-ON post, and then I get more K-ON?

But, when I first saw these plush, I was really in love. Well, mainly that applies to Yui, because I’m not a fan of Mugi. But I like Yui, so I wanted it. I was trying to find where to order one, but I had no luck, so I looked at who ordered it at Tsuki to ask them. But I saw it was Hina Ichigo (St_Jimmy on TB, but I’m more used to them as Hina.)… Toyslogic, of course. I didn’t really trust Toyslogic, but I ordered anyway. Price was super huge, but I didn’t care that much.

Then a while later, I saw BigPfeiffer had them for preorder, so of course I switched shops. XD Obviously, I have complete trust in BigPfeiffer, I’ve bought lots of stuff from them and it’s always been great, and then there’s the price… the price for the two plush from them was LESS than one from Toyslogic. :|

hair-uhi (a sort of rant? XD)
January 26, 2010

So, recently there was a new ASOS video. I didn’t like the old ASOS, and I wasn’t extremely fond of this ASOS, but like the original, I don’t hate it or anything. Actually, the singing was pretty nice. :D

But one thing that bugged me… why can’t Haruhi cosplayers get the hair right! So often when I see someone cosplay Haruhi, they always have their hair like this! You’ve got to put bits of hair in front of the ribbons. :|

Do it like this! :(

Looking at Coscom, there are a good amount of people who have done it properly though. :)

…also, Koto, hurry up and release Mio!! D: I’m sick of waiting.

(and, one more thing, Chu-Bra gets sillier by the second. :D I can’t wait for the rest…)
