Today another shipment of figures arrived. I thought I'd be no sooner than tomorrow but somehow it got here earlier than I expected. It came bearing four treasures: Inaba Yui, Mio and Reimu and Marisa plushies. Now I've got a few more figures to review, but I decided to go for Yui. Why? Because she's got an awesome feature I haven't known about yet, and isn't advertised on the box anywhere and I haven't seen it online either. But that may be me not looking correctly. In any case, let us get on with the pictures.
This is her front view. As you can see there's a lot of action going on, hair floating around, skirt up, donut on her piehole.
Since you guys REALLY wanted me to, I maked picturzzz.
She's a 1/8th figure by Alter. The good thing is that Alter is going to release the entire band. The bad thing is that I'll end up a poor schmuck. And with Mio being shipped as we speak and Mugi at the end of the month Azunyan won't have to feel alone anymore.
Anyways, let us go on with some pictures. These ARE what you've been expecting, right?
For those of you that still DO care about reading this blog, I'm updating! Right now I don't have a whole lot of stuff to talk about. There may be a couple of things I'll go over this week.
One of which are figures. Whee. I've got a Azunyan by Alter to review for a while now, and my Yui Inaba from Flyable Heart will come soon, together with Mio from K-On! I also have another Saber to post pictures of, an old Saber Lily by Alter. And, if people care, I have a Prop Plus Petit Railgun box, with 10 small figures from the Railgun series.
Secondly, I've finally started on a VN. It's been two years at least since I finished one and although I always download every translated visual novel I've only played about 4 or 5 so far. I've started with Umineko, this is also to blame for not posting anything. So far I'm liking it, but due to the massive amount of threads on /jp/ I can't say I haven't been spoiled. So far I've already "forseen" everything as I've already read most of it. I was a little scared that this might make it less enjoyable overall, but somehow I'm not minding it a lot. It still is an enjoyable story and it still is interesting in its way. Right now I'm about to finish EP1 and beside sleeping this has been taking a large part of my day. It's even overtaken my daily amount of /jp/ and /fap/. So my protein levels are dangerously high.
Third, Oh Mai Gah!! I've actually studied one or two kanji a day each day so far. Okay, it's less than I had hoped for, which was five a day. But daaayaam. I'm actually doing shit guys. I'm workin it hard, getting a daily dose and I'm getting it good. Now maybe when I'll finish Umineko I might do more because there'll be more time in a day(yeah right). Well, happy thoughts for now, let us keep this up.
For now, no picture, sorry. I might put one up later. For now, I just want to go to sleep, I'm buzzed also, so I'll probably sleep well. Good night /jp/.
Oh man. After a 14 hour long sleep/coma, I woke up. Thought of reviewing some more Nipponese. So I got up, said good morning to my beautiful girls that are displayed next to my bad and took a seat and turned on the screen to my battle station. Seeing nothing interesting enough to keep me from taking a whizz and to make some coffee, I went downstairs. Yes, everybody is gone. So I take my coffee up to the attic and check my email. Yes, Reimu Figutto! just shipped via SAL parcel. /jp/, nothing interesting.
Okay now for some kanji grindan. 3 hours later: I've fapped 4 times, fired up /jp/radio, did 1 kanji, in between faps and drank three cups of coffee. Oh man, how hard can it be to keep your mind to one thing for more than five minutes? Beautiful 2D for one, taking about 20 minutes or so. Oh god.
Now, it's not because I hate studying languages. I'm fluent in my mother language(durr), and I consider me near-fluent in English, at least at the level that writing makes it hard to distinguish between natives and me. Then there's German, which I'm not fluent at, but can understand most conversation and make small talk. Damn that's one annoying language. There's another two or so languages of which I have more than basic knowledge of too. And then there's Japanese.
So why is this so hard? It's not the kanji, those aren't a problem at all. It's not that I don't know HOW to study languages, because I've learned enough languages. I think it's because it's at least six years ago since I honestly studied. It's just so hard to get into it again. Yesterday it felt so much more like a breeze than it does today. It's not that it's about liking or hating Japanese either. When I finish and meet my goals I'm satisfied as hell. Which I haven't been in a while either. I think my brain is rotten. ;_;
So basically after doing nothing today, and almost nothing yesterday, I'm making a post again. Not a great post, maybe. But a post none the least.
Right now, before going to sleep(yes, best part of the day), I just studied some Nipponese again. Before going on with that, the standard firefox spellchecker thinks Nipponese is a valid word. Now I'm not an English native speaker, but that strikes me as odd. Very odd.
Moving on to the Japanese. I've spend about a couple of hours to find out about how far I am, and what I've remembered from my past tries. I know I was about at 300 words, including compounds, before. After doing some shitty meguro language center test it came out at around 100. Okay, nice. But I still don't really care about that. So I started up Kanjidicks again and just started from the beginning.
Since it's been ages since studying anything, I'm easying in myself, maybe picking up the pace later. I've studied the first thee pages. 一,二,三。 One, two and three. Now these are simple of course. As seen in other methods, you don't learn squat about compounds with the kanji you learn. But with kanjidicks you do. So I've also learned about 12 or so compounds, so I've also boosted my actual vocabulary.
Tomorrow I'll try to do three, or maybe five. But since I'll also be following Tae Kim's Grammer Guide again, I can't really say. But for now, this is my post. I'll try and continue this tomorrow.
Sadly, she's not here yet. However, I did just pay for her, so she'll be shipped soon. Sadly, with SAL, not EMS, but right now my wallet couldn't take that.
I "ordered" her earlier, however for some reason the order did not go through. Also it was the last one so when I checked back to ask why my order didn't come process I also found out, well I actually already knew, that it was sold out. Damn it. That's annoying.
Good thing though, two days ago, they received another stock, so I immediately ordered it, together with the Marissa Figutto! on preorder.
For any of interested in her but couldn't buy her due to being out of stock, buy her now at amiami: Reimu Figutto!~
Last post I described a song which I couldn't remember. Also I said that if nobody knew it, by the tabs alone, I'd try and record it. Well, I have, and I think it came out alright. With some cleanup I was able to get rid of a lot of noise. Sadly, a couple of strange clicks remain, please look past those. Also, at the end I felt like playing a little something, I'm sure most of you will recognize it.
For those that DONT play guitar, just take your dad's and play along. The low e, which is represented by the lowest dotted line here, is the upper, most fat string on your guitar. The higher E, represented as the highest dotted line is the most thin one, at the bottom of your guitar. A zero, 0, means open string, so don't touch any frets, which are the metal thingies and just strum it once. If there's a number higher than 0, you have to put your finger just before the metal fret and strum. The "s" means to slide your finger to the next number, ie 2s4 means that you don't take off your finger and move it to the fourth fret, you just slide it over the string still pressing down on it, towards the fourth fret. RETSU PUREI~
Recently I've been mesmerized by a bunch of songs. I don't even think you can call them songs really.They're nothing more than a bunch of girls say onii-chan over and over again. And oh my god. It' amazing.
It makes me feel like a real onii-chan. It makes me feel like a trusted onii-chan. But not just trusted, also a lewd one. Because lewd onii-chans are the best onii-chans. I think it's best for you to listen yourself, if you'd like. It's only one song now, because all the songs together are too big to upload to mediafire. Besides, I'm really tired and want to go to bed, so I'll get to that later, I promise.
But I've also got a request for you guys. Maybe there's a few of you who play guitar. If you do, whip yours out. I've got some tabs for you, which you can probably read. The thing at hand is that it's a small part of what I think is an instrumental Touhou arrangement. However, I've heard it only once on /jp/radio and forgot to note down the name to download it.
This is how I believe it went. I'm not entirely sure the last 7 was actually in it, but I included it anyway. Anyways, if none of you guitar playing readers know this, I'll try to record this so you other readers might be able to guess too. I'll have to figure out how to record things though. If any of you know, it would be greatly appreciated if you could let me know.
Edit: had to set the tabs to courier, default screwed with it badly.
Yesterday was a slow day for me, and with no updates for you. I have some figures I still can review but I just didn't feel like doing one. Also, while I have some figures ordered and coming in, and have some I already own but haven't reviewed yet I'll run out of them soon enough. It'll be hard for me to start writing different themed posts. My life isn't very eventful so I'll really have to do my best to keep this up.
However, I still have something non-figure related to post. Today whilst browsing I found this amazing picture of Letty. I'm no Letty maniac but hot damn this picture might just turn me into one.
She's a little too fat chested but dear god, those are some cute and amazing facial shots. So much emotion. So much love. I have been staring at this for the past two hours. Especially the on in the middle with her blushing and the large one on the right have me mesmerized. Every time I look at it I'm blushing from extacy myself.
Wow, right now I feel more happy than I have in a while.
Hell yeah, so it's finally here! 43 euros of customs for a 100 euro fig holy crap. But yeah, I'll make a call Monday to ask what's up. They rated the damn thing at 68 euros too, which should amount to no more than 23 euro customs. Damn those moochers.
But lets get to the point. Saber! My waifu came! Oh wonderful joy. Yeah, I'm happy. Here we have her in her box. The box is huge, even bigger than my Saber Lily from Alter.
Here's a list of figures I've payed for, preordered or whatever else can happen with them. There's also a lot on my wishlist. However these are the ones I have money set aside for, or payed for already. Links are included for you faggots who want to buy what I have. It's all cool shit anyway.
As I said, I got a fair amount of new figures lately, and this is one of them. It's a 1/8th scale Index figure by GoodSmile Company. It's not the newest figure, but I liked it and chose it over another, newer figure. So anyway, let's start with some pictures.
I know for a fact that there are some umineko fags here. A blogger I've recently started following, Sobul, has just made an upload containing high resolution character portraits. This is something I've been searching far and wide for, and probably some of you too.
So I'm not going to keep you from this good find:
Right now, I'm rewatching Aria. It's been a while and if any of you watched it, I'm sure you'll remember what a joy it was to watch. Every episode makes me smile, all the characters are cute and lovely and even though there isn't really a story, I still love the fuck out of it.
So last post you've been reading about the horrible, horrible base I was complaining about. Well, I made a picture with my stupid sexy mobile phone. You can compare the base in the picture with the base on the stock photo provided by Kotobukiya. I hope you see what I mean by butt-ugly.
For some reason I just can't imagine how people decided it was a better idea to take the clear base and change it with this shit. Thanks for ruining a beautiful figure. It was the first Kotobukiya figure I bought, and while it may not be the last, I'll be a lot more careful for now.
Since this is a blog about plastics, lets have a post about plastics!
Today I finally got my Sengoku Rance Kou Hime figure in the mail! And it only took 40 days! Gee. The webshop talked about delivery within 1-2 weeks. I guess they made a typo because it's more like 1-2 months. Anyway, here are some photos:
