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

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. :)

Comfort was the answer to all life's problems. It didn't solve them, but it made them more distant for a bit as they quietly worsened.

Posting this here because I share this guy's loathing of cheapo-branded anime re-releases.

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).

Aquired one of these, at somewhat of a knock-down price after it sat idle for over a year waiting to be disposed of. It's quite old but I'm running my turntable, PC and PS3 through it with some old speakers we had lurking around from a dead surround system.

It's not even being tested but it sounds so much better than the logitech PC speakers I had everything hooked up to. Even if I didn't get a remote control with it.

Today my video game and blu-ray collections expanded nicely.
Image

Sorry about the shitty image quality, I opened the curtains to let in more light but it's overcast outside, which isn't helped by my tablet's camera being junk.

Blu-rays: The Great Escape, The Outlaw Josey Wales, and Evangelion 3.33 in all its garish turquoise glory.
Games: Fallout New Vegas Ultimate Edition, Skyrim Legendary Edition, and Blazing Angels.

Fun fact: this is actually the 5th copy of New Vegas I've purchased. My first copy was the standard edition for X360 which I played until the disc cracked. After that I bought another X360 standard edition, which I later traded in towards an X360 Ultimate Edition when it released. Later I bought the PC Ultimate Edition through Steam and ended up giving my X360 Ultimate Edition to my best friend as a Christmas present back in 2014. But I never game on my laptop anymore and not having a physical copy of what I consider to be one of the greatest games of all time was really bugging me, so today I purchased the PS3 Ultimate Edition. I don't regret any of the money I've spent on this game over the years, I just love it that damn much. :heart:

Catch of the day: Evangelion 1.11, Evangelion 2.22, Red Dawn (1984), and a Ryobi belt sander.

...What do you mean those items seem completely random? Of course they're related! Stop being suspicious! :tongue:
