The MG Destiny Gundam Extreme Burst Mode was on sale with a discount of over 50%. Although I don’t really like Destiny’s design, I got to admit that those colorful wings do look really impressive in anyone’s room. I will be modifying this guy quite a bit when I get the tools and time to.
I saved quite a bit of yen on the HG Brave Commander and the 2 clear green Action Bases as well.
These 2 Figmas and Nendoroids had some awesome prices, so I quickly snatched them while I can. While I have been wanting to buy Nendoroid Elsie, Figma Index and Kamen Rider Taiga (Axe), Meiko was bought simply because she was on sale. Not that I don’t want her, plus I did thought that her Nendoroid was pretty interesting, then combine that with the price, I thought “Why not?”.
A bunch of manga: the newest volume of ToLoveる Darkness, which I bought at the beginning of April. Then various volumes of Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai, all of which are the limited editions. I have been wanting to read some light novels here, and I heard that High School DxD is a decently easy read (not to mention since I’m watching the anime), so I decided to pick up the 1st volume. Just as I was told, I find this novel easier to read than OreImou.
Just recently, I saw (to my great surprise) that Kannagi vol. 7 was going to be released soon, and when I saw it in person, I just couldn’t help but to take a copy back with me. It’s amazing to see Kannagi back and it’s also great to see that Takenashi Eri-sensei is back to good health (I think?). とにかく、ナギ様、おかえりなさい！
I also just found out that Namori-sensei, the artist for the manga Yuru Yuri, also did a collaboration pin-up on this volume. As a fan of that series as well, I’m really excited. However, I need to do some catching-up before I can open this volume, orz. (Namori-sensei’s Twitter here.)
You can also see the Mini-Ika Musume strap and the mini pink Tokyo Tower.
This stack of stuff were all completely free pamphlets and booklets that you can pick up around the various stores here, such as Gamers, Animate, Melonbook.etc. While they all advertise a product or a series in some way, some are actual posters that you can hang up on your walls.
These 2 Working!! doujinshi here are the first doujinshi that I have ever bought. Normally, I’m not really into doujinshi, but these 2 came as a set, along with an orange plastic bag and an awesome file (Yamada!). It wasn’t expensive (although I don’t really know how much doujinshi normally goes for), so I didn’t have a reason to not buy it. That K-ON! PSP deco sticker is actually solid and raised up. I thought that was pretty cool and cute, since Azusa and Yui are on it.
As for those cards on the upper right corner, I got those Ganbaride cards at Wakayama. The Fourze Cosmic States cards were free, as part of an event, and upon playing a round of the game, I got the Shin 2-gou card. I do wish that I got some other Heisei Rider’s card instead though.
Yuzusoft’s newest game, Dracu-Riot, was released just a bit before I got to Japan and I picked it up when I got the chance to. I got a bed sheet of the main heroine too. The first game by Yuzusoft that I played was Tenshin Ranman a couple years back (by the way, I share the same birthday as one of the heroines in that game, Chitose Sana). I really liked it and so I thought that I would give their newest game a try too.
I was pretty surprised when I saw Danny Choo’s Suenaga Mirai showing a cameo in the game. Pretty cool, unfortunately I have been busy myself and haven’t been too caught up on Culture Japan.
Here you can see the Tenshin Ranman bed sheet, which I’m currently using (and therefore, all this stuff was on my bed). You can see the Working!! mousepad and the Infinite Stratos sticker sets as well. On the right hand side are the Toaru Kagaku no Railgun poster and a mini-dakimakura strap of Misaka Mikoto.

All of these loots combined cost approximately ￥32,000. And all of this was just in one month. I’m studying abroad here in Japan until mid-June or so, and I’m kind of scared now. Orz.
