March '15 Loot Summary

Hello everyone!
Welcome to my March 2015 Loot Summary!


Warning! Photo heavy! Also sorry if the pic is too large to be fully seen.


As always, please ignore the dog hair. Hopefully, I can finish typing this up before I fall asleep. zzz I'm doing things a little differently in this blog. Rather than posting boxes and loot, I'm going to just throw the whole picture at you first! It's partially because I'm lazy and also because there are a total of 12 effing orders in here, so let's save us a little bit of time. Anyway, let's begin!

In the words of Emeril:
BAM!

Alright, *rubs palms together* where should I begin? Let's begin with the boring stuff (or at least what I find boring) and gradually make our way towards the rest.


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1428211200.jpeg

Oh Devil Homura (ITEM #198394). I PO'ed you in July 2014 back when I first started diving into this nonsense. You know, honestly, I haven't even watched anything from PMMM. All the comments on her page right before the U.S. retailers finally got her completely freaked me out. I almost called Rightstuf to cancel her! Am I glad I didn't? Um. I should probably watch the anime first before I answer that. She looks so smug and pretentious in her GIANT BOX.


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1428211198.jpeg

This (ITEM #199624) was really an impulse buy. I was at Anime Palace in San Jose, CA talking to the owner. He's a super nice guy, but apparently he almost closed the business a few times because they just can't compete with online retailers. If any of you attend U.S. anime conventions, you've probably seen his team there. Say hi to them and be nice to them. His small team has run up to 19 cons during one weekend. They're probably an exhausted lot. D: He also claims that he started the Alpacasso fad. Who knows! Maybe it's true!


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/omgusosilly1428211202.jpeg

AHAHA. My Amatsukaze is finally not going to be lonely! Welcome to the hoard--er team(?!), Shimakaze (ITEM #117915) and Asuna (ITEM #117915)! Now I just need Kirito. (*chants re-release*) I'm totally not forking over $90 for him.


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1428211036.jpeg

Ahhh Yui (ITEM #95394) and Sakurabo (ITEM #137495) from Yuru Yuri! I'm prepping my Yuri Yuri team until Kyoko (ITEM #236191) arrives. Anyone excited for Season 3? I KNOW I AM. YAYYY. My collection is just missing Himawari (ITEM #137496) now and I guess..Chinatsu (ITEM #95392). But who needs that demon? UGH.


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1428211028.jpeg

omgomgomgomg AYANOOOOOO (ITEM #137493). MY FAVE. <3 And of course, Chitose (ITEM #137494) ! I'm totally stoked to have Ayano and Kyoko. AYANOxKYOKO FOREVER. I ship them so hard, but not as hard as I ship MutsuxNagato. My loyalty shall stay with them forever.


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1428211076.jpeg

My Love Live collection continues to grow ! Hello Eri (ITEM #246255), Maki (ITEM #246251), and Umi (ITEM #246250) ! I had preordered these on Tokyo Otaku Mode. They all came in separate boxes, which I thought was a bit ridiculous (see photos at the end). But they're adorable! Although, Maki was a bit of a pain to put together because you have to put the support stick thingy through her cape AND her back. I'm going to have to hunt for Nozomi (ITEM #246246) when I'm in Japan next month. For whatever reason, she was sold out super early on Tokyo Otaku Mode (TOM). Dx But yeah, just for kicks, I've placed them all next to their Nendo petites that I got last month.

And if anyone is interested in how they come in their little boxes..

God. I can't get enough of Hakoinu. Thank you, TOM, for restocking the little swing set figure. I'm going to have a new work desk buddy!


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1428211032.jpeg

My keychain loot! Well, part of it. THAT. WO CLASS (ITEM #268785). DEKA KEYCHAIN. IS RIDONCULOUS. I knew it'd be big, but I wasn't expecting school bathroom hall pass big. JESUS. The two little bear charms are from Yuri Kuma Arashi, which just ended in last season's anime. Lulu (ITEM #281631) and Ginko (ITEM #281629). <3 I want those plushes. GDI. The last item is the Asuna carabiner (ITEM #122572), which I thought would be more white rather than a grey.. Oh well! Just one more thing to my Asuna shrine.


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1428211034.jpeg

Just in case you're curious about the back, the Wo Class deka keychain is an expanse of WHITE. And if it gets scratched, the graphic will probably look super scarred. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it. Sigh. Seriously, bathroom hall pass big.


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1428211030.jpeg

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1428211074.jpeg

Part of my Kancolle theme this month seems to be..getting items that I didn't expect to be so big. Hahaha But Rensouhou (ITEM #216784) is still really cute. The other is a Nagato pocket watch! Because I must have all things Nagato. Yas.


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/omgusosilly1428214460.jpeg

I TOTALLY forgot to include this (ITEM #272729) in my all inclusive photo. HOW COULD I POSSIBLY FORGET? This mug eluded me for so long. I stayed up long, bitter nights refreshing Amazon and stalking AmiAmi, HLJ, EVERYTHING. I finally placed an order on HLJ for it as a backordered item and they canceled it. T____T I can still remember how bummed out I felt. Thankfully, I was able to nab it off of Amazon's 3rd party seller (for an extra $5 then MSRP) and forwarded home via BIJ. Akatsuki no Yona has totally been one of my favorites this season, although it still baffles me that Ao (the squirrel) ate a live fish. WUT.


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1428210736.jpeg

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso. You. Broke. Me.
I don't think I've cried so much since Dog of Flanders. I cried more for this than Ano Hana! After completing it, I immediately went to Amazon.jp to grab whatever I could. Yay for their media/books international shipping! I really wish the OP and ED songs were included though. (ITEM #264561) on the right and (ITEM #268334) on the left. If you're curious about the back, the insides, and all the goodies, see the spoiler! I only posted a few sample pages though.

Again, (ITEM #264561) on the right and (ITEM #268334) on the left. I won't include any images of the booklet from the OST on the right because it was all text, but I've taken pictures of its insides! It came with 2 cds.

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1428210940.jpeg

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1428210932.jpeg


Here are the pictures from the classical OST (ITEM #264561).

If you were curious about the scroll in the photo above, this is it (ITEM #274112). Wall scrolls from Japan are totally on a different level.


LAST BUT NOT LEAST...I present to you: Asuna & Sinon.
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1428211078.jpeg

Do you know what these are? Better yet, do YOU have them or any from the set? Are you wearing them? omgomgogoamsdflkasa I couldn't believe I was buying these. When they were announced, I was like "No. Not happening." Two days later, I was contacting proxyrabbit to buy them for me. /weak. Oh yeah, so what are they? Yeah they're..anime glasses. HAHAHAHA. Oh how I've fallen. My friend tried them on and glared at me through them. I quote: "Lily, I am judging you so hard right now, but these are cute. Still judging though. WTF LILY." Anywho, I think the photos shall speak for themselves. For your sake, I'll put them under a cut. I've always thrown in some models to model them for you. HUEHUEHUE. Ahem.

Oh and yes, they are slightly shaded due to the reflective glare protection thing (brain fart) that's on them. zzzzzzz

Here's the link to the official page if you're curious! megane.heart-up...

I'M DONE. I'M FREE. Okay and just for kicks.. some photos and comments I have about some of the packaging that came with my orders.

View spoilerHide spoiler
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1428210934.jpeg

Mandarake decided to ship Shimakaze to me in a box of maggots. Okay jk not maggots, but I hate these puff balls.


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1428210936.jpeg

Is this seriously how wall scrolls are shipped from Japan to the states? I bet I could've fit a boat paddle in this. IT WAS HUGE.


http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/omgusosilly1428210728.jpeg

My preorders of Maki and Umi from TOM shipping at exactly the same time and they decided to place them in TWO separate boxes. They're so silly.


Thanks for reading (or skimming)! Til next month!

    Shinobikens (2 years ago) #2866972I've never actually used a forwarding service before. What do you recommend?
    Hm..You know, I've only used BiginJapan's forwarding services, but there are a lot of great articles on MFC that talks about forwarding services. My friend seems to love using Tenso! Sorry I can't be of much help here.

    But all forwarding services are pretty much the same in terms of the process, it's just a matter of additional fees. I went with BiJ because I would've needed to combine several packages and it seemed like Tenso would've racked up on money from me if I asked them to repackage. But basically, you order the item and have them shipped to the address indicated by the service. Then they just bill you once they've received your item in their warehouse/office. So they charge service fees, repackaging fees (if needed), shipping fees, and possibly a fee on top of the paypal/credit card cost. Once your final invoice is paid, then they'll ship it to you. It's just a matter of waiting and communicating!

    BiJ isn't great at communication, but I've had no problems with my packages. Good luckkk.

    I got Ayano from the U.S. Amazon third party sites. She cost me around $23 USD with just regular SAL. :/ It's a bit pricey, so I suggest that if you're going to get the other girls, get them all off of Amazon.jp and use a forwarding service to forward them to you. That's where I got the rest of the girls. Or if you can, find them on Mandarake! They're a lot cheaper there.

    Yeah.. I think they were sold out within a week or two of release (2/26/15) and they're supposedly "limited edition". I don't know if they're sold anywhere else through scalpers or not since I haven't checked. I hope you find a pair though! Good luckkkk.

    omgusosilly (2 years ago) #2862382They come as PC glasses, which cut blue light emanating from your electronic devices. But if you wanted to change them into prescription lenses, you can totally take the frames in and have them do that for you. Unfortunately, when you order them online, you have to settle with the PC ones rather than prescription.
    P.S. I really hope you find them!! ;D
