A Gift For an Anniversary

“A Birthday is the day when you’re celebrating yourself being born to this world.” From the immortal words of Emiya Shirou, the memelord of Fate franchise.

After all, people died when they are killed, he once said. ^^;

I don’t really celebrate my birthday much nowadays, as it usually falls on a weekday (Meaning extra exhausting day of working). And with my sister’s (One day later), my cousin’s (Another day later) and my grandma’s (Several days later) birthday are also within the span of days, all of us are lumped together in one large celebration, usually only a grander dinner than usual.

For the most parts, the Lunar New Year is always around the corner, so there are some years we even joined the birthdays and the Lunar New Year celebration together… orz

「勝つのはご主人様に決まってますけどね」

Of all the many years of patient waiting ever since the release of the original PSP JRPG Fate/Extra, stretching from participating in multiple official polls (Where GSC asked of the ACG chara the collectors wanted, in scaled figure/Figma/Nendo form…), to myself subtly hinting and out-right asking the GSC staff (At events, on Twitter and other social mediums about the possibility of a Figma of my beloved foxy Miko), the Figma version of Fate/Extra’s Caster has finally been announced earlier this year.    

Time-skipped several months later, she has finally been released to the public a few weeks back.

No doubt I got my hands on one, taking another fortnight before she finally reached my place, after having to rescue her from the Postal Dude (Once again the office refused to deliver my stuff to my place, you can read all about their irresponsible behaviour here…).

Caster, her true name being Tamamo no Mae, came packaged in a standard, simple design, as per the newer generation of Figma box art.

Clad in her colour theme, black and bluish purple (purplish blue?), the over all simple element with minimum logo and text truly brings out the main focus of the package, the transparent window layer that shows off part the main figure herself.

A Gathering of Collectors

Got an invitation to join a gathering of us local collectors of various anime/manga/game figures and toys, last weekend.

We were encouraged to bring along some of our collections for display, as this is also an exhibition event or sort, in a local mall close by.

Incidentally within the same day, there are other events going on around town, on the island and main land. The Bounenkai, a cosplayers event at another mall nearby; Danny Choo’s Culture Japan Night (Noon infact, just like the one 3 years back, same venue even… ^^;) at yet another venue, still within the island; And Day 2 of an ACG event called TAGCON in the main land.

As I’ve already promised and committed to turn out in the Anime Collectible & Games Penang event, I’d to abandon the idea of attending the rest, although my close friends did managed to visit them in my stead. XDc

财源滚滚随春到、喜气洋”羊”伴福来

A new year, a new dawn! A Lunar one that is… (   |  ‿‿  |   )

Regular followers of Sisterly Love series will immediately recognised the following 4koma… ^_~

4koma_65_Feature

For the uninitiated, it is the Year of the Goat, or Sheep, or Ram, or whatever you like it to be… :P

Sorry for the reuse of the same neta, but I think the 4koma is very suitable for this Lunar New Year.
