I've been collecting anime-related and other Japanese figures since around 2000, although I've been into anime for longer than that, and a collector in general for even longer.

Current collecting interests include: prize figures, Cu-Poche, Parfom, figma, Nendoroid, Pokedolls, jigsaw puzzles, and, as usual, game music.

I remember that Sentai sale! That one was pretty crazy. Didn't pick anything up, though.
I'm much more of a manga reader than anime watcher (plus our anime backlog is huuuge), so I'll mainly be looking out for manga bundles in the Right Stuf holiday sale. Besides No. 6, I'd like to see deals on A Silent Voice, Gantz, Peepo Choo, Toradora!, Tokyo Ghoul, Haikyu!!, and probably some others I can't think of right now. Incidentally, I've been reading more horror manga lately-- nothing to do with Halloween, it's just that I keep discovering that a lot of it is really great. Most recently, it's been The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service, but I'm also reading Ajin, though the pace of new volumes seems to have slowed. I'm normally not into horror, so this has been unusual for me.
My husband and I will celebrate our ninth wedding anniversary next month, and we'd been going out for several years before that. We actually met on a video game forum (and we've made a handful of good friends there, too). This was back around 2000 when online dating wasn't really much of a thing yet, so it was somewhat weird at the time. It's worked out well for us, though! Hopefully you can find someone similar in the future, and yep, shared interests are definitely important ^^
Congrats on your big Sparda Bros. splurge (early holiday present to yourself? XD); hope they end up being worth the money. And huh, I didn't know that Lightning bust was that much. I hope the Judge busts are reasonably priced, but it's Square Enix, so who knows. I like the Vincent as well, but not so much the size and price. item #462969 is another one I've been eyeing (chibi Magitek Armor!), though I'll probably wait for a sale. Figure prices in general are nuts these days. The quality and detail of modern figures is wonderful, for the most part, but I miss the prices of ten years ago!

Ah that sale from Sentai was great! I actually picked up Towanoquon, Un-Go, & Five Numbers/Coicent. Five Numbers is really good! It's only about 30mins long but I really like it! The other short that came with it was meh though. Towanoquon is very sad T_T and Un-Go........I remember watching it every week when it was airing and I think that was when I decided I will now wait until a show is finished airing to actually sit down and watch it lol. I hate waiting every week for new episodes plus my internet is crap so I'd rather sit down and just binge watch all at once instead of struggling to get through one episode each week. *sigh* Ah since you are a manga reader more what are your fave genres? I actually got sick the other day so typically when I get sick I like to read to I just lay down with my tablet and read away. I've been on another shoujo kick lately so I read a couple and re-read some older ones I had kinda forgotten about. It's pretty awesome to rediscover some older titles. Ah and I have some BL recs....you've gotta read Honto Yajuu from Yamamoto Kotetsuko! It's barely yaoi and is mainly about the whacky adventures between the two main characters. It's so light hearted and fluffy and just a delight to read. Really wish it was in English though v_v I'm just going to buy the JP copies though. Trying to learn the language since I get so tired of waiting for stuff to release here in English or it never releasing at all. Ah I love Ajin! Well, the anime at least lol. I wish Netflix had not licensed it here though because it doesn't look like they will release anything on DVD/BR......I mean, yeah they are strictly a streaming service and while I am happy to have more stuff licensed over here, I'm not happy about outside companies taking advantage of the anime popularity craze right now and depriving us of having physical copies >.> anyways, never had heard of The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service so I'll give that a go!

Oh wow congrats on the anniversary coming up! That's awesome you met on a gaming forum! The last guy I dated I actually met working part time at gamestop lol. We had known each other for a long time though just from me going in there but never talked outside of that. Having that similarity was nice but in the end it just didn't work out. *shrugs shoulders* I think my problem is I always end up with guys that want more attention from me than I am willing to give :'D I still live with my parents (I seriously live in the basement lol) and have no intention of moving out anytime soon so, yeah XD Speaking of shared interests though, do you guys game a lot together? I used to with my sister but we don't speak much anymore v_v Although the memories of us arguing and yelling at each other while playing Catherine and Dynasty Warriors is a time I can look back at and just laugh about haha.

Lol I have no idea where I will put my twin devil boys but when I showed my mom she just kinda laughed XD Will probably see if my dad can make a shelf on my wall specifically for them. I am messing around with trying to build my own individual display cases so I hope to enclose them with plexiglass or something when I finally get them in. Ah I am a sad panda about SE and them only releasing PAKs. The newest PAK Cloud was AMAZING but the FF15 boys don't look so good >.> I actually cancelled the ones I had on order, that's how awful they looked to me. Maybe on sale later on. I do want the FF13 LR PAK though, she looks great! I am looking forward to the new Sephiroth though, that wing! Aaaahhhh I want those World of FF chibis! My mom wants item #462961 and I do too lol. So cute! But, 3000yen is pretty expensive for them......1500yen maybe, but no more than that. Speaking of are you getting World of FF? I am so excited for it! Much more excited than I am for FF15 tbh. I POd the CE because it was so damn cute. Hasn't shipped yet though and looking on gamefaqs a lot of people already have theirs on the way! Wth! I hope they ship mine soon T_T Played the demo though and had a blast.

OMG, Right Stuf's holiday sales are deadly. I'm telling myself I have to avoid this year's, but I'll probably end up checking the new deals every day and maybe picking up a manga bundle or two. What are you hoping will go on sale? Speaking of which, No. 6 is one of those series I keep wishing that they'll bundle in a big sale, but they haven't yet. I do want to check it out, mostly since the plot and setting sound interesting and the reviews for it have been great, so since you plugged it I'll consider it even more now ^^ Argh, there's so much manga I want to read D: I was kind of relieved when the summer convention season ended with only one or two new manga licenses that sounded interesting to me.
Also, forgot to give you a warning about What Did You Eat Yesterday?: do not read it when you're hungry! It's one of those kinds of foodie manga! And yes, the husband and I share a many, if not most, of the same interests, though we differ on a few things. For example, he likes Tsutomu Nihei manga series whereas I can't get into them, and vice versa with Bisco Hatori. It's important for us that we can enjoy things together, but so is having our own separate tastes. When we come across something that we both really love, however, we gush over it and discuss it like any old fans ^^
Sounds like you have a pretty strong attachment to Dante, indeed, and I didn't know that Myethos was making a figure of him! It seems like they've come out of nowhere this year with all their nice-looking figures. item #389416 does look pretty accurate (and that price is hilarious). As for Square Enix, it looks like they're starting to take their Static Arts line more seriously, so hopefully that continues. item #462950 looks very nice and I'm tempted to get item #449774, depending on the price. I prefer articulated figures myself, but Square Enix is an exception; I really don't like Play Arts kai, but their static, soft vinyl, and trading figures are great (item #189888 is one of my recent favorites).

Haha rightstuf sales are equally as bad as they are good. Plus I always order enough from them to get that free shipping so at that point I'm just like, "might as well buy more." I tend to buy manga and anime in bulk so I really like their holiday sales. They had a Sentai sale earlier in the year where they had some of their titles down to either $5, $7.50, or $10 and I grabbed a couple titles then I would have otherwise never bought. They were all titles I had already seen though but since I prefer owning my own copies and English dub, I tend to buy a lot of anime. I am currently hoping for a couple anime to go down in price like Assassination Classroom, Terror in Resonance, Parasyte, Seraph of the End, Garden of Words, Say I Love You, Maid-Sama, Rozen Maiden, Code Geass and quite a few others to go on sale. I'm trying to think of how much I will spend so I can set that aside and just splurge during their days of xmas thingie they do every year. They usually have some bundle manga sales too, might finally pick of Attack on Titan manga if they have that one again this year. Not sure yet. How about you, any sale you're hoping for? Ahh No.6 is a must watch! It has some heavy BL undertones in what you think is just a sci-fi anime. Of course there's nothing more than that in regards to the BL, just kissing and light touching. I was actually surprised to see the following it had which encompassed a lot of males. But the story is great, I highly recommend it! It's a Sentai title and weirdly enough certain Sentai titles seem to never go on sale. I caved and bought Another and Ghost Hound after realizing that fact some years ago but it's ok, they both are amazing shows. Ghost Hound in particular seems so underrated. It's bad for me because I feel like a kid who sees something shiny so I want to look at it (manga/anime) constantly but then I get distracted by another shiny thing (new manga title) and then my attention shifts lmao. I'm on a kick right now though watching horror anime. I just love to start watching it from summertime through now because idk, horror anime and summer goes together so well to me and then a good way to top it off is to continue watching them through Halloween XD. Hellsing, Shiki, Blood+, Le Petit Cossette, Psycho-Pass, Pet Shop of Horrors, Trinity Blood, and Future Diary are a few of my faves I love to watch this time of year.

Haha I tend to eat when I read anyways so whenever I read What Did You Eat Yesterday? I will be stuffing my face already XD That's pretty awesome you found someone who shares your interests! My ex was into gaming as much as I was and was pretty into anime but not as much as me. we clashed on other things though and broke up. Another ex of mine complained about my gaming habits so that didn't work out either. It's really cool to hear though when there are couples who can enjoy this hobby in general together. How long have you been married if you don't mind my asking?

Ah yes, Dante is my ultimate husbando <3 Oh yeah, the price for that set is hilarious, I mean, $666.......I ordered off play-asia with their coupon so I got about $130 off I think it was for a grand total of about $1300 including shipping for both brothers and their devil trigger forms........I don't know what I'm doing with my life sometimes lol. I have high hopes for the Myethos one, we'll see. So, the Lightning bust item #346980 did not look good from the user pics. I want a full scale of Lightning, I love her, but this was crap. Then they have that tiny Vincent one item #462950 which I really want but with that Lightning one, I may as well wait for a sale.

View spoilerHide spoilerR_Kasahara (10 days ago) #15422924Hope you don't mind me moving our conversation here! I'm starting to get low on inbox space again and figured this would be easier ^^;
I ended up placing three orders for manga yesterday @_@ -- one at Akadot, one at Right Stuf, and one at June. At Akadot, I got a Tezuka book (Clockwork Apple; almost bit on Alabaster as well but it sounds incredibly dark), Kinoko-inu vol. 2 (not a great series but I still want to give it a chance), and some of the June titles that were cheaper or the same price as elsewhere to hit free shipping (a couple of Makoto Tateno books, Border vol. 5, Blossom vol. 3). From Right Stuf, in addition to a couple preorders, I got the first four volumes of Border, and from June, the first two volumes of Blossom. The June order went through super quick and, like yours, has already shipped! That was a nice surprise. Anyway, I hope that after this I am done with buying BL for awhile; I buy enough manga in general as it is. Twittering Birds vol. 3 will probably be the next one.
Glad I wasn't imagining things with the tags; hope they fix that soon. And if you like comedic BL at all, I definitely recommend I've Seen it All; it starts off with an unusual premise, but it's a sweet and funny story. There's an exam room scene in, iirc, vol. 2 that has to be seen to be believed XD Looking forward to reading Border despite the cliffhanger (;_;), and the lack of sex scenes doesn't bug me, especially if the story's good. Speaking of which, have you ever read any of What Did You Eat Yesterday? It's a slice-of-life/foodie series about a gay couple, but it's a seinen manga with no sex whatsoever-- however, it is frequently super cute <3 Shiro and Kenji are one of the sweetest couples in all of manga. My husband likes this series, too.
You saying that you played DMC when you were a kid makes me feel old ^^; I've played through the first four games, but had no interest in the reboot. I would love to get a good Dante (DMC1 ver.) action figure one of these days. item #7419 looked neat, but the back of his coat being permanently flailing out bugged me. And my husbando is probably Reno from FFVII >_>;

That's fine! I never delete PMs because I'm lazy so I've got an almost full inbox orz.

Sounds like you got a lot! I will be ordering from akadot soon as well, there's quite a few things there cheaper than from rightstuf. I'm waiting until December to place my rightstuf order, or until they have another big sale since they really mark down a lot of stuff near xmas. I've got several hundreds of dollars of stuff in my cart, I'd like to wait as long as possible before I place that order lol. Ah I think you'll really enjoy Border! It's wonderfully beautiful and really shows the relationships between the characters well, especially with each of their back stories being revealed. Some of it is very sad and some of it is just so heartwarming and sweet. I've never read Did You Eat Yesterday, I'll give that and I've Seen it All a try! Have you read No.6? Most people have, and really love it, even guys. It's not even really shounen-ai, it just has two characters that really care about each other and they just happen to be male. I watched it first without even realizing there were BL undertones to it so I was pleasantly surprised in just the first episode lol. The manga is better though, the anime kinda goes off and does its own thing but both deserve a look. Oh wow you're married? Does your hubby share your love of anime/manga/games?

Ah I didn't mean to make you feel old! I'll be 30 next year and I still feel (and apparently look) like I'm in high school so I don't really feel that old even though many people would say I am :'D Oh pft, that reboot is blasphemy. I couldn't believe they did that to my fave series. Playing games became a way for me to get over the bullying I faced as a kid so when I saw they completely changed the game that I held so dearly in my heart made me pretty upset. I mean, it's like they made him a hot topic kid....Ah I have that figure, the best thing about it is the box lol. That's the only figure I have yet to remove from the box. I'm excited for item #449239 though, and I ordered item #389416 which seems to have the most accurate face of all of his figures so far. I also ordered item #389417 . Really excited for them! Oohhh Reno is such a hottie! I love him too. I wish SE would quit being so stingy with their titles and let a company start making static figures of their characters. I'd love a giant scale of Reno and many other characters from FF titles. I really am not a fan of articulated figures.

R_Kasahara (8 months ago) #6873923Unfortunately, I have no idea who the artist is. I never noticed a signature or anything on the cards themselves, and the style is not one I recognize from any Vocaloid illustrators/fanartists I do know about. Maybe you can look at some Animate/Movic items in the MFC database and see if any have the same art style? Sorry I couldn't help you out ^^;

Ouch, thanks for replying to me anyway! ><
I ended downloading and cut the image and insert it on google images and could find the ilustrator!
It seems it name is: 赤倉 (akakura it seems?)

yaaay > <

I'm sorry for bothering you ; w ;
I was gossiping the GO! Animate thread (because i'm always curious about therse things haha) and saw in the comments the VOCALOID large posters freebies. I felt in love with the ilustrations so i'm wondering if says the name of the artist somewhere and/or if you could tell me so i could look for the artist and more stuff from them ^^u

Again, i'm so sorry for bothering I hope you don't mind ><

Have a nice day please ☆ ~!
