提督の Heart を掴むのは、私デース!

The popularity of Kantai Collection, or more commonly referred to its shortened term Kancolle, is going stronger and stronger.

Announcements and releases are flooding the world of figure collection as well as never-ending supplies of merchandise (Unlike the flow of Bauxite XDc)

After the overwhelming demand of Nendo/Figma Shimakaze a few months back, it’s no surprise that many more will come courtesy of GSC, including Nendo/Figma Akagi as well as this gem… :3c

The Hood of an Assassin

I have always been a follower of the Assassin’s Creed series ever since its début, fascinated by its parody use of historical facts to combine with the open-end free-running/parkour game-play as well as its colourful casts of real and fictional historical figures…

We get to explore the rich culture of each period in the guise of each protagonist of the numbered games, from the enigmatic pre-Mentor Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad of the Middle Age Crusades (Assassin’s Creed), to the charm of Ezio Auditore da Firenze of the Renaissance (Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations), to the conflicted Connor of the American Revolution (Assassin’s Creed III), and finally to the brutal Captain Edward Kenway of the Golden Age of Piracy (Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag)…

There are several more main and sub games in the series spreading across various platforms like Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD, the live action short Assassin’s Creed Lineage, 3DCG Assassin’s Creed Embers or even Assassin’s Creed The Fall comic series…

In short, the world of Assassin’s Creed is ever-expanding, with more games and others to come.

Clingy Foxy Apparel

After the discovery of this foxy apparel, I’ve been in dilemma for days at her acquisition.

Yet this foxy miko managed to melt down my will (As always), beckoning my crying wallet-kun to its limit. =w= 

egTops_Caster_Full_Colour_T_01

Unfortunately due to EG-Tops policy on Amazon, they won’t ship outside Japan, forcing me to rely once again my trusted proxy service Tenso.com…

Which means an extra couple of thousand yen of further spending just to get her to my den. T^T

Fateful Foxy Apparel

I kinda failed as Tama-chan’s ご主人様 for not noticing this almost half a year ago… orz 

A T-Shirt released by EG-Tops as a limited merchandise to C84 Natsukomi as part of the Fate/Extra CCC series!

EGTOPS_ Fate_Extra_CCC_Full_Colour_T-Shirt_01

Unlike most of the so-called Full Graphic/Print T-Shirts similarly priced from other companies (Which features only a single side of fully printed T-Shirt), this release had both of its sides covered with the foxiness of a certain magical kitsune! w

Extra Merchandise of Another Fate

After a full Moon since the release of Fate/Extra CCC, I’ve finally completed and obtained Tama-chan’s Servant Ending! www

Fate_Extra_CCC_Merchandise

While preparing to start the game anew with New Game + using another Servant (I’ve decided on Aka Saber! www), I’ve unwittingly knowingly scoured the vast space known as the internet and found several related merchandise now in pre-order stage.

Culture Japan Noon

When Danny-san announced the news some weeks earlier, it was an incredible surprise to all of us Islanders that he’s going to hold a CJN on our island!

To be held in the St. Joseph’s Novitiate at the Gurney Paragon, Penang, the gathering will begin at a rather odd hour: 1300 – 1800 on a Saturday (Thus Culture Japan Noon instead of Culture Japan Night… XDc)… 0_0

For the uninitiated, St. Jo’s is a heritage building made anew via reconstruction, and is now a hub for community events with rotsa restaurants surrounding it…

Procurement: AFA12の勝利品

Lots, booties, treasures! What event ends without any wallet-killing? XDc

Like many AFA before it, AFA12 too drained my in-store credits to its core… orz

Ever since I’ve got myself the Moekana cards back during AFAMY12, I’ve wanted to get one of those deck holders every Card Battlers been carrying around… Luckily a certain Uncle got them in stock at discounted price at his Kopitiam in the halls!

Got a couple of them, one for the Moekana and the other for holding the meishi I’ve collected… XDc

The holders come with a trio of extra Moekana card too along with a lovely paper bag!
