My June LootMy June Loot

This is a loot post, but a more... psychologically revealing loot post than is the norm. For I shall not merely show what item I have acquired during the month of June, but for some I will disclose why I purchased them, at least for the figures. What convinced me to buy. In some cases, what pushed me over the edge.

First, the beautiful Syaro ITEM #331743 from Is the Order a Rabbit?? ENCYCLOPEDIA #92372

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/WanderingWastrel1467495455.jpeg

Why this figure? Well, besides Syaro being cute, it represents her working uniform very well, and besides she's my favorite character in the show. I had this one preordered immediately, so this is the one figure in the list where there wasn't a "push me over the edge" factor involved. Sorry, but fear not, the others are more interesting in that regard.

Next, the beautiful Kanna Tanigawa ITEM #315830 from Waiting in the Summer ENCYCLOPEDIA #32898

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/WanderingWastrel1467495348.jpeg


I can easily explain this purchase. It's a very beautiful figure, and again Kanna is my favorite character on the show. Plus, Kanna is cute. However, as I already had her ITEM #144298 figure, I was managing to resist this one.

Then my resistance was nearly destroyed by this picture PICTURE #1538006 by shiro169. But though almost obliterated by the beauty of that pic, the shattered remnants of my resistance held on, and I did not buy. But then... PICTURE #1555511 -- shiro169 posted this one! Surely a man can only be expected to hold out for so long! So I found a place that still had it in stock, and quickly acquired it. So it's all shiro169's fault. And after having the figure for a while, I only have one thing to say to Mr. shiro169.... View spoilerHide spoilerthank you.

Okay, last figure for the month (fret not, young ones, there are non-figures later on), is the beautiful Rin Kokonoe ITEM #7093 from Kodomo no Jikan (A Child's Time) ENCYCLOPEDIA #178

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/WanderingWastrel1467495399.jpeg

This 1/4 scale figure was released seven years ago. What on Earth would suddenly convince -- nay, compel -- me to seek out and acquire such an old figure (besides dear Rin being cute)?

Alas, my poor readers, the rules of the forum are such that I can not tell you! I am prohibited from even linking from this loot post directly to the source of my inspiration! Oh, cruel fate, that we must toil so under the terrible rules (that I grudgingly admit have some justification) set down from on high by the all-seeing mods! But wait! I can link to the sole place on this site where such mysteries can be revealed! Only the most stalwart and hearty of heart and mind should dare to seek to know of the glorious crusade that even now stirs many a person to also be likewise galvanized to action, as I your lowly blog poster, was thus inspired! Click here club/1591/discu... if you dare.

(ahem)

With that probably quite transparent attempt out of the way, let's examine the artbooks I greedily acquired during the month:

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/WanderingWastrel1467495578.jpeg

ITEM #442784 from Hello!! Kiniro Mosaic (season two) ENCYCLOPEDIA #82766
ITEM #192827 from Kiniro Mosaic (season one) ENCYCLOPEDIA #52361
ITEM #442785 from Castle Town Dandelion ENCYCLOPEDIA #89078
ITEM #229628 from Atelier Escha & Logy ENCYCLOPEDIA #48503

(Also acquired, but not pictured, is ITEM #397992 from Grisaia no Kajitsu ENCYCLOPEDIA #25568 - I didn't include it because it's a tad NSFW)

I'm turning more and more of my collecting activities to artbooks, because they take up less room, take less money to acquire, and are almost never delayed for months and months and months. These particular artbooks were added to my collection as I liked the stories, and many characters happen to be cute. (As an aside, while most folks will at least be aware of Kiniro Mosaic and the Atelier games/series, probably fewer people noticed Castle Town Dandelion, so I want to recommend that show to you. It's just a nice show, and unlike so many anime it actually had a resolution to the plot.)

Here are the clear files added in June:

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/WanderingWastrel1467495649.jpeg

Yes, just three: ITEM #453071 and ITEM #453069 and ITEM #453073 all from the show Ooyasan wa Shishunki! (The Landlord is in Puberty!) ENCYCLOPEDIA #95227 but each is a set of two, so there's actually six files there. Now this show probably flew under most folks' radar because it's a short -- each episode was just two minutes long. With 12 episodes, you could watch the whole thing in a half hour. Normally I don't bother to watch shorts, but I'm glad I did on this one because although very short, they actually used the time well and the characters' really did come through. Besides, the landlord, Chie Satonaka, is pretty cute for a landlord.

Hmm... there might be a theme of some psychologically revealing sort in there somewhere... eh, probably just my imagination.

Well, that's all for June. Sorry for the bad photography. Take heart in that I probably won't post loot posts again soon, unless I have some strange and unspeakable ulterior motive to, oh, I don't know, get you to click on a link to something I want to tell you about. Nah, that'd never happen.

Dandelion was indeed a great show, I'll second your recommendation. Akane had many adorable moments.

chiechie (2 years ago) #12333406really amazing loot! all 3 of those figures are ones I have had my eye on too x) they are really really lovely, especially kanna! I find there is something really alluring about that figure. did you seek out the red uniform ver. specifically or just happened upon that one first? both versions are great either way. I really want to find mimi but she's so expensive x_x

I just happened upon the red uniform version. I had to look it up here before I even realized there was more than one version, and then of course I bid like a madman on it.

Er, donate? I... I have no idea what you might be talking about. Surely such things are unmentionable 'round these here parts. (yes, winter vacation level)

solluxcaptor (2 years ago) #12333157So many good choices here, but most of all I'm in LOVE with that Rin!! She's one of my most wanted items and seeing her in your photo only makes me want her more *___*I was very lucky to find her, and in the red uniform limited edition, too. I'm going to have to get more shelves at some point, and Rin is going to go on the top shelf, since she's looking downwards and you have to look up at her to see her face on this figure. (Of course, everyone should look up to her anyway.)
