Yeah. You read right. This is for everything that doesn't have anything to do with Eva.

First of all I just want to say Korea's Toys R Us is
vastly superior to the US version. Lots of Japanese
imports, including this guy I picked up

Tamama is best frog. Anyway, it also came to my surprise that this will require A LOT of assembly. In fact, Tamama was the only thing I was able to assemble, and that took about an hour of cutting out the pieces and assembling them.

I think I'm going to get Catamari to help me, and I'm sure he'd enjoy it since he loves to build things. Besides, he could probably read the instructions better than I can.

Wait, is this official? I mean, I know it was stated that Jeanne was a magical girl and it was only a matter of time since Japan loves Jeanne for some reason, but I didn't actually expect it to happen...

Heh heh. It says "tart".

It is ^_^ . I really enjoyed it and am looking forward to volume 2.

The reason for the name Tart.
SPOILER: Show
kyubey and Riz(another magical girl) ask her to spell her name and she spells it JeanneTart, not knowing how to spell but spelling it out of memory. So kyubey asks her if he can call her Tart for short.


Edit: Got some new DVDs to add to my anime collection. :)

Snake's gonna come up to Misato's knee, but I'm sure he'll still try to hit on her :tongue: Just gotta wait for Venom to be out next year (and in the meantime bug GSC to make a Nendo Quiet!)

Related, these cute Asuka and Misato figures are still available via Paypal. ^_^

Today with the rest of my birthday money I bought a collection of Borges stories, Historia Universal de la Infamia, so that I actually have something nice to read to better motivate me to learn the barbarian tongue.
I had already bought the Nausicaä manga hardcover set with the some time ago.

I adore cheesy horror films and I feel like the world needed to know about it.

The manga volumes were a quite welcome surprise, considering my family doesn't know the first thing about anime/manga. The Blu-Rays I bought for myself today with a giftcard.

PC we built for under $400 and 2 more of the SH Figuarts Sailor Moon series were my main gifts this Christmas. /Is happy ^_^

I think whenever I do get a Play Arts Kai Big Boss, it'll be the Peace Walker Jungle Fatigues version based on other people's suggestions.

As well as my main present, my wife bought me a little surprise to unwrap. I didn't really think she took much notice of my current interest in stuff from Japan, but this is what I found:

Image

I'd tried to take her to the film when it was on in Oxford, but we couldn't find a time that we could get to a subtitled showing (she's pretty deaf, and prefers subs to dubs for that reason - we even watch English TV with subs on). But the book is a complete surprise, and not one I've heard of either.

My Sphero BB-8 finally arrived today (after being a month late due to delays.) Fantastic little bugger. About had a heart attack when I dropped it about 4 feet onto the floor, but it's proven poly-carbonate shell (Same as the other Spheros) held up with zero damage and it still works flawlessly so the internals are A-ok. (what I thought was a crack turned out to be a slight paint defect on closer inspection)

It's pretty expensive, but if you like the new droid and want a mini version to play with I'd recommend it. I'm now debating whither or not to buy a 2nd to put away and keep it mint, just in case 20 some odd years down the line its worth a mint.

I bought a new microphone, in preparation for a retirement project:

Yes, it cost a lot of money (though it's the cheap offering in that manufacturer's line)

Made a fairly big manga and manhua haul during winter holidays in France:
- World Embryo vols. 12 & 13
- Mokke vols. 1-7 & 9 (grrr, couldn't find vol. 8 so will have to source that elsewhere...soon)
- Rurouni Kenshin vols. 20-22 (deluxe edition) + Kenshin Restauration vols. 1-2
- Bride Stories vols. 5-6
- Little Yu vols. 1-3 & La princesse vagabonde vols. 1-4
- Planetes manga (hardcover)
- Le dictionaire des yokais, which is a book written and illustrated by Shigeru Mizuki about you guess it ^_^ (500 of them)

I think that was close to 200 Euros of manga -o-;

About 20 or so different Star Wars Pop Vinyl, the high points being the Emperor and TR-8R complete with sick spins.

Also the 3.33. BD (finally).
