Happy Birthday once again Dracnore! Hope all is well.
Eh... the Nanoha movies themselves left me less than impressed. Unless they did a domestic release, I likely won't watch them again. Although the 1st was more palpable than 2nd. While I'm not necessarily completely against downloading anime, I don't feel like it is the right way to support the industry. Even so, I'm reasonably sure where I fall in the Otaku scale between super cheap and doesn't buy vs. must get everything. Probably more than the average anime fan, but just from this site alone, there are people with more time/money/dedication than me and I'm okay with that.
Thanks for a heads up on that Force Fate figure. I saw her designs from the bonus art book along with Force Nanoha and Vita. I'm glad they are doing something with them despite it being less than popular (or so I've heard). I've added to my need to buy list when it gets released.
As a random thing of note, I almost always get together with a friend of mine for weekly anime watching. We try to knock out 12-13 episodes series in one shot or if they're longer, about that many episodes each week. If you're interested in what I've been watching, I can PM/comment yah. Likewise if you wanted to do something similar, feel free to.
Hmm... the exceptions I've made over the years have been few and far between. There was Valkyria Chronicles and I waited several years for it to be licensed (with no success) before I watched it, Nanoha StrikerS was also long after it completely aired, both Nanoha movies well after the Blu Ray releases and Nunally in Wonderland also waiting awhile after it was released in Japan. Madoka has always been a game of patience that I eventually won simply by waiting. All too soon will I finally get to see Rebellion.
Besides, none of those mentioned are available commercially with physical releases over here. The 3 times I wanted to, yet still haven't, were Japanese Bluray LEs was for A Channels soundtracks which I adored the hell outta there vocal pieces, the Girls Und Panzer Anzio OVA from last summer and the Fury Bluray that recently came out because there was a feature by Yukari of GuP explaining tank combat scene(s?) from the movie.
And in the last 11 years of collecting anime and stuff, the only thing I've watched before it was completely released and still airing in Japan was Sailor Moon Crystal. I got no problem with people who like streaming their anime, but I just like to pop in a disc and marathon without creating my own playlist or dealing with ads or having some weird time bar buffering because I missed a subtitle or some such. Just my way of doing things.
While that Fate is quite impressive, I already have her with a BFS (and boobs) from StrikerS, this one here item #4322 Now as far as Nanoha figures goes, I'm waiting for this beauty from Force myself item #236444
Yah know, I actually built a custom database using OpenOffice from scratch to keep track of all my DVDs and Blurays. I update it when I get a few things in but I never made a MyAnime account. Also been meaning to make an AnimeNewsNetwork account but I never really found anything so important to post about. I suppose the fact that I don't stream anything contributes to such. Physical releases for me only!
