After Holiday Haul!After Holiday Haul!Loot

LemonMIntCatLemonMIntCat6 months ago
Hello, everybody and happy new year! I hope everyone had a good holiday season, and that 2020 has started out well. I wanted to take some time to share a few new items that I picked up just yesterday from the post office after returning from vacation.

Technically the first item,ITEM #896615 I got the last day before my holiday vacation. The mailman said he was glad he caught me, since he remembered I put my mail on hold and wanted to get me this last thing! Honestly I was surprised since I am not usually home and have to do pick up but its totally sweet of them to recognize folks (maybe I just order too much... he must be used to making slips). This Sakura Miku tapestry was purchased from AmiAmi, the illustrator is Kiyamachi,ENTRY #61380. I love this tapestry, all the contrasting colors and Miku's sweet face and lovely eyes.

The next items were one of my most anticipated purchases, the Tokyo Otaku Mode Evangelion X Alpacasso or "Evapacasso" plushes (ITEM #929943,others are linked)! These plushes are meant to look the like the evangelions themselves and they really do except way more cute! I purchased the standard size since I wanted to be able to display them in my case. They are really nicely made, and the Nerv HQ tent is such a neat addition. I think the Eva 00 is actually my favorite since she has very cute pink blushed cheeks. The plushes also came with a promotional picture with the pilots holding the evapacassos (Rei looks so cute). These are still available on TOM in different sizes if anyone missed on the special preorder.

The next item is a absolutely stunning art book, ITEM #814869, from the artist ASK, ENTRY #57044. An illustrator who has done a few Myethos figures. This book is centered around Asuka (as is most of this haul). I really love ASK style something is gentle and striking, I highly highly recommend looking at their pixiv page. I will include just a couple of my favorites from the book as well. This art book was purchased from Doujin Republic and they very kindly gave me 2 straps of Asuka and Rei as a present. I actually own the Asuka one already (it was a present), so I guess I might give the other away or display it somehow.

Beautiful Illustrations!!

The next couple of items are interesting but not in the database, both were purchased from Mandarake. The first is a small Taito blanket featuring the "Winter Image" Rin, Miku and Len. I have the Miku figure, ITEM #886786, ordered and I also just love this illustration so I am glad I got the blanket, its quite small but also only 5 dollars.

The second is a long towel which is from the artist "Carnelian" and I believe it was a con/expo good. It features chibi neko Asuka and Mari. I didn't expect Mari as she wasn't photographed on Mandarake. But I mean I saw Asuka, and she was a kitty and the whole thing was pink, so must buy!!

View spoilerHide spoilerI hung this off another tapestry I had, not sure the best way to display,

My second Mandarake order had 2 figures and one art board. The first, ITEM #102371, is an adorable chibi trading figure of Asuka in a swimsuit meant to look like her test type suit. I was honestly shocked by how adorable this was, seriously too too cute. Love that the sand pyramid has a angel (I think sachiel). And second is ITEM #120613 I guess a special lottery prize made by Kotobukiya for Lawsons stores. This had been on my mind for a long time but I never thought I would find it. She is super well made for something this size, her electrical tape wrappings have been sculpted and she has nice shading on her suit. Wish I had better pictures!

And for the art board of Akane, here is a pic with her nendo, this art is just super pretty, she looks like an angel.

And lastly for one more Asuka related item (・∀・;), I got this hoodie but from a US store, Hot Topic, I saw the ad and it was on sale. I am glad to own a clothing item with one of my favorites on it. Though there is translation which calls Asuka second girl instead of second child(ren) but I guess this is maybe a gendered word originally.

I think that's all there is, I guess my favorite items are probably the art book and the swimsuit Asuka (honestly too dang cute)! Thanks for reading through this haul, feel free to share about any nice items you got recently, holiday gifts or just gifts for yourself ( ̄︶ ̄;) I hope you enjoyed it, and have a wonderful day or evening!

Cloudberry6 months ago#73542380I saw a 2014 Snow Miku artbook from ASK and it's really cute! Yonyama Mai's art is great too and I'll look up artworks from Mai-sensei too.
Thanks for the recommendation! Curious about Doujin Republic but I tend to check Mandarake most of the time first.
As for shirt size, I tend generally go one size up when buying shirts from Japan. I once bought a shirt that's two size up from me and while I love the shirt, it's quite too large for me >.>


I will have to check out the Miku book! And thanks for the recommendation, maybe I will consider ordering a few shirts. I noticed AmiAmi frequently opens up new preorders for the same designs- so I maybe havent missed out!

LemonMIntCat6 months ago#73430982ASK has a super interesting style, they unfortunately dont have that much posted online but what they do is great. The book also featured a few pages from another artist Yonyama Mai which was extra nice. Also I can say, it was my first time with Doujin republic since I only started getting artbooks but I have bought from Goods Republic before. I think they can be higher in price, but this book I thought was very okay in price. I would check Mandarake or Surugya first but Doujin republic does have really excellent packaging. This came with lots of bubble wrap protecting the book, plus the straps where a nice gift. And yeah I forgot Hot Topic exists but I saw the ad and I got this online. I haven’t gotten any clothes from AmiAmi since I worried about sizing so ordering from a US shop makes me feel better if I need to return things.

Cloudberry6 months ago#73418635Ahhhhh that tapestry is too cute <3
ASK's artwork looks interesting and I'll definitely checkout his/her work.
I've been eyeing random stuff from Doujin Republic for awhile but haven't bought stuff from them... Yet...
And I always forget Hot Topic sells anime stuff >.>

BlazeDazzleDusk6 months ago#73417601Amazing loot, those Evapacassos are adorable and the Sakura Miku tapestry is very cute!
Thanks so much! The Evapacasso feel very soft, I wish you could buy just one Jumbo one but they come in a set. Might just buy a jumbo alpacasso just to cuddle!

cute6 months ago#73418171great haul! i adore that asuka art book, she looks gorgeous in all the illustrations. and that akane art board!! <33
Thanks! I am glad to have found the book, there is some illustrations that actually haven’t been posted online so it was a real treat. Also Akane is totally a cutie, Mandarake has such nice small items, I think the art board was 300~400 yen!
