About

Vilseriol! I'm a casual Figma- I mean, FIGURE collector who started with Figma Yukiko and my collection has snowballed from there.

Most of my collection- I'm ashamed to admit it- consists of Figma. They're one of the best looking figures out there, in my opinion. Their shading, coloring, worksmanship, and the way the figure feels in my hand, makes it my favorite brand for articulated figures. Though I just wish the brand was cheaper, or at the very least, came with lot more accessories.

I like scales but they require quite a bit of space, which is something I need more of. Plus, I like to play with my figures. A lot of them don't stay in one pose for long

Aside from that, I also have a pet Bombay cat, I enjoy airsofting, and, don't laugh, gardening. Yes. Gardening. Vegetables are good for you!

The Sony E-mount "My lens is bigger than the camera" experience.

Zeiss Loxia 50mm: Takes good pictures AND makes me feel like a special cupcake because it's manual focus only. Just don't be that person that hands it to a passerby to take a photo of you, while they wonder why the image isn't focusing, okay?

Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8: This lens defeats the purpose of a mirrorless camera's smaller size. It also makes people uncomfortable due to the large profile.

But damn! It feels good to have a 28-75mm zoom that doesn't cost a kidney, isn't slow, and can pull macro duty as well!

Venus 105mm f/2: A bulky telephoto lens that's decent even up close! Bokeh is a bit overpowering at times, however.

Sony 28mm F/2: I just really like the 42mm focal length when I set my camera to APS-C mode.

PS I have more gear than skill.

Good to hear that it's getting better. Even if it's only going slow, better than not getting better at all! :3

Isn't there only one Pyra? And probably all figure collectors know her, even if they aren't interested in her one bit. xD How many releases were there already? 3? Is this the 4th one? That long wait time sucks, and with GSCs delays... Well, lol. I don't know how they are with rereleases, but can't imagine they are faster with those.

I wanna get Pokemon Snap too, but I have 3 Switch games already, that I should probably beat first, with 2 being pretty long ones too. So I'll probably get it in another year or so. x3

Hope you had a great time at the national park! :3

Aaaw, that doesn't sound too good. Hope it gets better in the next few weeks. :c

Great that you're getting some of your preorders. All my April figures were delayed and a bunch of the May ones will be delayed for sure as well (looking at you GSC lol). Only getting some small stuff.

I'm thinking about getting a couple, but not sure yet.
Still playing the second game, though near the end, lol. Long games are fine, but some games, be it JRPGs or others, are TOO long. And I feel ToCS is too long for sure. Normal playthrough goes on for 100 hours, lmao. Cause I sure as hell am not doing any side stuff and probably am near that timeframe. And the first one was super long too. Story and dialogue is good and great, but there is too much of that in this game as well. Think some parts could have been made shorter or cut out completely and it would have still been a very good game. Hopefully gonna get through the second one soon, so I can start the next one. Already got 3 ready to go. x3 Almost bought 4 a few weeks ago, cause it was on sale, but then I thought, it will probably take another 2 years to get through the third one, so it will get way cheaper still. No rush getting it, lol.

Hey! Thank you for the birthday wishes! :)

Maybe I'll get P5R when it's on Sale or something. But for now I'm good. Got enough other games to play first.

I still haven't even finished Cold Steel 2, and there are a 4 and 5??? Lol. I'll never finish this series in this lifetime it seems. xD

Trials Mode? Never heard of that. I gotta finish the normal game at least once before doing any special stuff, lol.

Hmm, I don't know. I don't think Haru has that little screen time. I mean, I was able to get her as GF, so there is enough time for that at least. But of course I would have prefered her to be one of the first characters to join the party. Would have been great to switch her with Futaba, which I don't particularly like. No clue why everyone else does, lol.

Did you look up some guides for the Top Secrets challenge? That might help. :o

View spoilerHide spoilerWho knows. She probably is, lol. The innocent looking ones are always the "worst". :P

Oh man, you would have so much "fun" getting it. xD
View spoilerHide spoilerGotta clear ALL the VR Training things on Hard first to even unlock the fight you get it from. And it's a special VR Simulator in Ch17. Then you have "3 Person Team vs. Top Secrets" and it is only available in Hard Mode. 5 fights in a row. First 4 fights are Summons. Shiva, Fat Chocobo, Leviathan and Bahamut. Bahamut is the ruiner of everything, lol. Man, that fight is REALLY hard. If you can do that, nothing else will get in your way, even without the accessory. xD That big lizard summons Ifrit when he is at half health too, uses Megaflare regularly which wipes the party without Reprieve (and to get that you have to get a lot of Manuscripts) and/or Manawall, and his Umbral attacks are just crazy powerful. After that you fight the "Top Secret" which is a variation of Ultima Weapon I guess. That is a cakewalk compared to Bahamut, so if you can beat the dragon you're good. It took me 4 tries to beat Bahamut, still amazed it's only 4, lol.

Yeah, true enough. :3 Hope you made more progress.


Haru is my fave too. She was my girlfriend in the end, haha.
Hope you enjoy the new things in Royal. I won't be getting it anytime soon. The original game already was too long for my liking, even if it looks so cool and I like most of the characters. Can't imagine going through it with even more things added atm.


Normally they don't, but you know, special circumstances. They currently also give a 2 month payment deadline, which is awesome of them. Thank god I got more Shipping options back, so I can actually get stuff now.

Nice! I got a bit more waiting this year. Maybe... without delays... which will happen for sure, lol.

How is that cheating? That accessory is there to get, if you do it before or after doesn't matter. ;P I did the hardest thing first to have an easier time afterwards, lol. Though it doesn't really make it that much easier. Sure, some chapters it really helps out a lot, but most of the time it's just a LB sitting there and not being used. xD

That wasn't a long break, lol. I'm glad you beat it in the end and that some of my rambling helped. :3 Reno and Rude won't be a problem. I'm sure.

Noir? The P5 Noir? Hope she will turn out good.
I got so much stuff sitting at AmiAmi, but no Shipping available, lol. Only DHL and I won't pay that much for a Prize Figure or Trading Figures. >.> I think I'll just pay DHL for my Honoka figure, cause I really want to have her. And probably for most of the Scales. But AA can keep Nendos and everything else for now. xD I'm glad they keep the things if you pay for SAL Shipping and then send them out when it's available again. I really hope that will happen soon. Or at least give me EMS back. Or Airmail. :/
