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.

The Figma of a Foxy Miko

After years of prayers and waiting, the Figma version of my raison d’etre is finally ready for pre-order!

Sourced from a Chinese comrade’s Weibo post, I was sceptical at first, but quickly remembering my last exchange with another fellow foxy lover, as well as several passing rumours floating around… *Edit: More news sources, Tag Hobby and FigSoku

No doubt the news of Figma Caster’s PO is the truth this time around.
