Lego Store in Houston Galleria

Went to the Lego Store in the Houston Galleria to buy a couple of brick separators. Decided to take some pictures while I was there. Sorry for crappy white balance.

Cheerful Miku

Mikatan Blog is such a cocktease sometimes. Even though there's no way at this point for anyone to order any more of Cheerful Miku figma, they proceed to parade it around on the blog like it's going to change anything. Doesn't really make any sense to me but maybe someone else can explain the meaning behind it all? :P

Nendoroid Elsie

Nendoroid Elsie

Nendoroid Elsie from The World God Only Knows. Only one word to describe that smiling face: HNNNG!!
Releasing in a few days from now. I've been considering getting her for some time now and the newest Mikatan update just re-affirms that.

Nendoroid Elsie

Elsie's accessories have a lot of cross-compatibility especially her faces. Speaking of which, 4 faces! And they're all very cute and useful. And then there's the comical arm shaking and leg running parts. Very fun stuff. GJ, Max Factory!

And some blatant advertising. Help me buy a Nendoroid Elsie. XD

Buy Nendoroid The World God Only Knows Non Scale Pre-Painted PVC Figure: Elsie at Play-Asia.com

Speaking of advertising, if anyone knows of an affiliate program that allows me to put up specific stuff like the Amazon button above, let me know. Even better if someone can teach me an easy way to put up a Play-Asia link similar to that Amazon link because text only links suck. :P

New Shinki figures!

Eukrante and Fort Bragg Dusk

From Mandarake. Price as follows:

Eukrante 4000
Ft Bragg Dusk 4500
EMS shipping 3600
Total: 12100 yen
Converted to $: $157 >_<

Both are opened items; Eukrante was described as scratched although initial inspection didn't reveal any outside of not so clean looking sprue cuts. Normally it'd be a couple weeks before I open them up but since they're opened items, I'll be doing a through inspection this weekend.

Madoka Magica review & comments

Madoka Magica last

I've been watching Madoka Magika since the weekend and finished watching it 2 days ago. After watching the last episode, I spent the rest of the day in emotional BSOD while digesting the series as a whole. The next day was wasted reading through the Madoka section on TV Tropes. (I need to ban myself from reading that site, everytime I go there I find new stuff to waste time reading.) And now that I'm done, it's time to summarize my feelings on the show. The show has become my new top favorite anime I've ever watched (previous title holder was Code Geass). It was a nice emotional roller coaster ride and I definitely expect myself to rewatch at least the last 3 episodes over again in the near future. Those last 3 were definitely the ones most "relevant to my interests" plus I had to hold back tears at least once during each episode. =.=;
