Hey guys, I think it’s reasonable to assume that all the visitors (however many of those who are still faithful to me) do watch anime. I have a small request from you guys.
While there’s still a huge gap still until I need to purchase stuff for the anime club, I can’t help but start to budget a little seeing as…well, I foresee many things going to the gutters and expenses will sky rocket, mostly personal expenses. And so it happens, taking a look at personal spendings is unavoidable.
And in case anyone is wondering, it is indeed exam time, updates will be pretty much non-existant. This is one case where I’m absolutely sick of studying and the exam is in several hours anyway (actually I’ve not been stressed in the last few days, but whatever and for those who don’t know, the time when I’m most bored is the few hours between when I wake up and when I have to go write the exam).
Umm…Yeah…It’s been a awhile. I wonder how many people still check.
Anyway, I’d just like to say that I have not totally forsaken my blog. Due to various circumstances I wasn’t able to produce any articles. Unfortunately…I won’t have any time to write anything before April ends either…But yeah, hopefully I’ll get back after that. Needless to say, I have been busy with a ton of junk, the difference between this time and other times is…I’m not doing so hot with a few courses.
Subtlety has never been my thing so I’ll just say it straight out. I just turned 20, and yes yesterday was my birthday but I was too pre-occupied with stuff that I wrote it the next morning instead *cue for extremely dry and unenthusiastic cheering*.
Our club anniversary is drawing near and every year on the third Saturday of January, Western Anime Video Explosion hosts a 10 hour long show, sometimes there are games to be played and prizes to be won. This afternoon (WordPress runs on a different time, so this happened on the afternoon of the 20th), the current club president and I went to the only anime store in town to pick up prizes. It’s my second time going to the store, though I wasn’t very helpful at picking out prizes (I suggested getting a Miku plushie, but I’m probably the only few in the club that knows who she is).
It’s my second time visiting that store, during my first I found nothing of interest. This time they’ve got several figures, all for decent price due to the fact that I’m the only active figure collector in town. But no, I didn’t buy any (and no, there were no Saber figures), I did come back with something else though.
As luck would have it I spotted the post the moment it came out. But yeah, we who call ourselves dedicated Saber fanboys (and girls) will now be put forever to shame thanks to this dude.
This guy has every single Saber PVC figure ever released (to my knowledge, that is every single one), along with duplicate of others which bear slightly different features depending on the accessory (the Solid Theater Saber Alter and Gift Saber).
Seeing as the game was released when I was 14, there was no way I could have collected to this guy’s number. With the dollfies now on the lines of several times my credit card limit, there’s no way I could afford them (and I wouldn’t do it for myself, if I had a girlfriend who’s close to me I might buy one for her to take care of). Plus, if I WERE able to actually have this collection, I’d be disowned instantly because my parents would reason that I’m well enough to live on my own (or at least pay my own tuition, housing and food…yeah, be on my own).
Looking at that guy’s collection, I counted 13 figures that are part of my collection. I could also name the makers of 80% of the figures (it’s the small ones that I can’t recognize). How many can you name?
The dude is also missing the 1:1 figure/doll by Papermoon.
