HA! This time it is shorter!

Even if it's by only one figure.

Last month's list as usual.

Someday...

I think Play-Asia is never gonna ship Marisa to me. I been waiting since May, and the release date has been moving up and up ending with a TBA.

So, gonna keep an eye on Mandrake, if anyone spots one let me know.

October

I was happily looking forward to getting Selvaria on September but alas a delay occurred. Now slated for a late October release, such a shame.

I can't wait to get this figma in my hands. The Dead Master design is so appealing to me plus I'm sure BRS figma is feeling lonely without her lovely friend.

November

I really like this figure, I really am looking forward to it. However, I been feeling tempted to drop her and use that money instead to buy a few articulated figures instead.

Still got the rest of October to think it over.

I still like Persona 3 as much as before, so not much to say about that.

Plus something I like about both Aigis and Metis is that being robots the joints really are negligible aesthetically speaking.

Not that figma joints have ever bothered me in the first place.

So, loli Haruhi was shipped to me earlier this week making her fourth Haruhi figma. Even though I have four already I still happily look forward to my fifth.

Quite saddened that Strike Witches ended. What better way to cheer myself up than with a figma of one of the 501st girls right?

December

Thinking about it, I'm not quite sure why I am attracted to Alter's rendition of Saten Ruiko. It seems though many people are since there is a waiting list for her at Hobby Search.

I kinda regret a little not getting Koto's or Alter's Asuka since the pictures I been seeing of the former look quite good.

Luckily for me I will get the figma version to make forget all that regret.

I kinda don't want the BRS blu-ray anymore now that I own the DVD that came with the BRS figma. Not that I can do much about it since I can't cancel AmiAmi orders.

If anyone cancelled with AmiAmi before let me know how.

January

This annoys me, why are all the Railgun figmas exclusives or bundles?

I will still happily get Biri Biri with the bundle since it's a game I can actually play.

As far Kuroko I will wait for the figma to show up on Mandrake without the game. Same thing for MISAKA, kinda clever though that there will be only 20,000 of them. Yeah, I want at least 3 Sisters.

Since I'm getting Asuka it's pretty obvious to get Rei as well right?

I'm pretty sure I mentioned before that I tend to think of certain characters as a pair or group. Asuka and Rei are one such occurrence.

February

THIS IS MY HOLY GRAIL!

I'm pretty sure everyone at once point wished one character or another got the figma treatment. This is mine.

If I could only buy only one figma, or if for reason I had to sell all my figmas, or if could only save one from destruction, it would be Kos-Mos. That's how much I want this figma, that's how much I like Kos-Mos.

I arrived late to the party so I didn't get to buy many Kos-Mos figures when they where released and the after market prices for some of them make it unlikely I will buy them anytime soon. So when I get the opportunity to buy one as it releases I don't think twice about it.

February seems so far away.

Eating Out with Chiaki

This past Saturday I went out and had dinner with Chiaki as my accompaniment along with a group of friends.

Although the plan was to go get some crepes we ended going to an aptly named restaurant the Japanese Kitchen where the meal is cooked by the chef at your table.

This being a fancier than usual restaurant the meal was more than one course.

For starters we had a small bowl of salad with the restaurants in-house dressing and a bowl of soup with some mushrooms.

The soup and salad were followed by some cooked vegetables seasoned with soy sauce.

Everyone agreed that the cucumber was specially delicious including the green veggie disliking Chiaki-sama.

Next up was a healthy portion of lobster for everyone.

Actually not really, the lobster was for the couple sharing the table with us. Would love to try it someday preferably if it's free.

For having gone to a Japanese restaurant we didn't really order Japanese dishes.

I ordered a New York steak, "cooked to perfection". One of my friends got our "town's best steak" with the last steak being mixed together with a "medley of vegetables seasoned in our [restaurant's]  in-house sauce".

Not to worry at least one person got a Japanese dish.

Pretty interesting to me is that they used that list where you write down how many and what kind of sushi you want and give that to the waiter.

With our meal finally cooked, it was time to dig in. I must say Chiaki was pretty hungry and ready to dig in by this time.

Quite a delicious meal as Chiaki agrees with me after leaving an empty plate.

One thing that made me unhappy was the check though.

Hmm...writing this and looking and these pictures made my stomach growl.
