I am a man that has lived the true hardships of a true life of a normal human of my time.


Besides that, I am not really a figure collector. I just want to collect those I would like to have. My manga and anime culture is close to 30 out of 100. Lol.

But I do like Ah! My goddess! manga serie and I have begun watching the anime on the net, but I have stopped a while ago.

I love Evangelion. I read the manga and watched the serie (the end seemed really weird to me). I would like to watch the movies. (I have watched the first one)

I have begun reading Dr. Slump too. It's nice and funny, lol. :P I began watching the anime a while ago but I stopped.

I have all the Dragon Ball mangas. I used to read them alot when I was younger. I have never really watched the whole serie, more likely some épisodes in the pack, when they would be shown at the television. It's not my favorite serie, but I like it.

I love visual novel too. Maybe one of my favorite things of the japanease culture, I have to say.

I have played Seasons of Sakura (one of the visual novel that has actually, I think, trigged my interest for japanease visual novels... Anyways, it the first one I played)Simple story, a boy in a new school meets a couple of people, becomes friend with them, and later on in the year, will become the boyfriend of one of the girl he met.

I have played Nocturnal illusion. I loved it and still love it. One of the story that actually trigged my taste for writing! :D A mansion, a group of people living there for different reasons, many weird things happening. I recommand it.

I have played Runaway city (not too bad! From the makers of Seasons of Sakura) A dude lucky in life that meets different people and somehow help them for any kind of problems. The story of a nice little life. :) (But keep in mind that it is basically a porn game... like all those I name)

I have begun 3 sisters story. I have not finished it yet. But it's nice. (Also from the makers of Seasons of Sakura. Actually they produced a memorial cd-rom, containing those 3 games, since they used to run on the old generation of computers, win 98. The cd makes them function on the win 7, but I have never been able to make them function on the win 8 :( ) 3 sisters story is about a guy that lives with 3 women... Many bad things happen to the group and there I cannot really tell you more.

I have played to Immoral studies 1 and 2 when I was younger. Nice but not particularly great. A pervert teacher who gives private lessons to girls...

I have played to a visual novel I don't remember the name, when I was younger... The story was about a man who suddently had to live in a mention with a family composed by a crazy mother and her daughters... (You can guess the next) In the mansion there was that housemaid that was mistreated by the family... like a slave... The man and the housemaid will become closer. Well you can guess the next. Really not one of my favorite.....

I have begun playing Project Family. Loooove it. A boy and a 6 other people not blood related, begin to live together, because they have all lost their home. (except for the girl who actually ''greats'' them. But she needs them in order to pay a share of the rent, anyways...) Many things happen, all the characters are being very mysterious about their past (including the main one, one of the most mysterious!!)

I would like to play Dividead, one day. :P Seems nice. The story seems to be about a dude who goes into a school were plenty of weird things happen (love those kind of story :P )

There is that Kimi ni Steady game, the one for the PC, very old game, cannot find it anywhere, not sure it would work on any of my computers, anyways. One of the girl (I didn't know her name... so I nicknamed her Amelia... A few years ago, I found her name on a fan site. Nowaza Yuu... if it's really it... Purple eyed waitress, brown hair, big yellow ribbon...) she has grasped my attention several years ago... in my youth. I passed 10 years of my life searching for her on the net, and, someday, thanks to e-hentai.com, I found the game she was from. :P Well, one of my dreams would be to play to that game. Kimi ni Steady. About a boy that meets many girls and will become the boyfriend of one of them someday. Amélia, that manga girl, she is one of the characters that has really set my interest for manga (not to use another word that maybe some of you know...) and visual novel culture... She is the lady of all mysteries... and... one of my top favorite manga girl. If there would be a figure of her, I'd sure buy it! :P

I am studying to become a translator. I have also begun learning japanease. Another of my dream (meaning I really would like it) would be to translate visual novels from japanease to French (I live in Gettygatsburg), or to English, if the text is not too difficult (because as you have maybe noticed, English is not my mothertongue)

Besides visual novels, I have watched 3 Ghibli studio's movies. I love what they do. Princess Mononoke is fantastic!!!

Well anyways, it's not because I like a serie or a movie that I will buy the character's figures. It's simply all about if I want to get them, or not.

But it's quite sad they did not produce figures for the visual novels I named above. Because I have a couple of favorite characters in there... :P

Well, it's all about that I think. Quite a little lot, lol.

Yes on both! :D I think in the USA there are also multiple similar cons, like a Yaoicon. Still, they are always smaller events because it's like a niche of a niche.

That sounds really good for society, wow! :D And good luck on going back to college!

Hehe, I'm going to be lazy there and copy something from my bio: "To support this hobby, I of course need a job, so I'm a Content/Division Manager at a mobile game company, which is exactly as awesome (and busy!) as it sounds! I also do a lot of other parttime work, including being a for-hire bootleg-identifier and being the vendor area manager of our national Yaoi and Yuri convention called YaYcon.". :D I see you are looking for a job right now, looking for something in a certain field?

Oh! Sorry, couldn't remember if I shared that one. My progress on new cosplay is slow, but I will write a new blog when I have everything together from my Calne cosplay! :D

That cake sounds good! :D Every birthday, even if small/simple, needs a cake! ^^

Mecha Musume? :) Hehe, yeah, still actively collect from it! Recently it was mostly newer items I found on sale, such as things from Kantai Collection, but right now I am also looking into buying trading cards from the Humikane Shimada Collection, which features a lot of his older designs:



I saw the Nendoroid and he's so cute and cool! :D I am a huge fan of NBC, although I have been selling most of my collectibles from the series, as it does not fit very well with my anime collection. >.< Currently trying to find a new home for ITEM #452400 .

Emily from Corpse Bride would be amazing too! :D Although I think they went for NBC, because it's Disney's property now and those were Disney Nendoroids...so hrrmm, I don't know how high the chance of any other Tim Burton licensed character would be! I'm already super glad we have ITEM #381685 !!!

No problem! And 31 is not that old (yet) LOL! Was Arale your birthday gift to yourself? ^^

I've been doing well, just a bit busy because I had to switch jobs unexpectedly last year! I still do cosplay! Don't think I will quit anytime soon LOL! Maybe you have not seen this blog from me yet: BLOG #40372 and I'm currently working on this big one: www.cosplay.com...

ifob8 (1 year ago) #22632758Hey,
well, I'm fine, I'm fine! I've been living in Western Canada for the 10 past months, organizing games and activities in french for kids in a french school. It was nice. I'm going to miss them, lol.
Now I'm going back in Québec next Friday. Whew! All of an adventure. I'll be doing the same thing for the coming school year, but in the Nunavut this time. I'll depart next september, and be back next may (may 25th).
What about you, how are you? In what field do you work, already? What about your cosplays, how is it going?
Do you still participate in many contests?
Hey, I've just discovered they're airing an anime of Frame Arms Girl! Nice! By the way, does it have any connections at all with Mecha Musume? (curious)
I wish they'd create a figma of Gourai (my fav of the gang), I think I'd buy it. I like the Cupoche one, however I find her glare to be not similar enough to the original character.
Well, here is a lot already lol,
Write me back when you're feeling up to it ;)
Take care, and thx again for the wishes ;)

Hello! :)

Oh, that sounds so nice! :D So now your job is to continue traveling and live at different places while teaching?

I currently work for an auction house, but I am still trying to fulfill my dream of being my own boss someday. I would like to get an extra degree for that, it will depend on my financial situation how soon I can get to that (right now both me and my husband need to work to pay our bills).

About my cosplays, I have mainly been working on a huuuuuuuuge project, my Calne Ca costume. Here is an overview of my progress: www.cosplay.com... I've been working on this costume since the beginning of this year and I hope I can complete it before the end of this year, but there are just SO. MANY. PARTS. to work on! @.@

As for contests, my last one was a year ago and from my Lilith cosplay. It's in this blog (I don't know if you have read it): BLOG #31529 As for upcoming contests, I hope to enter one again once my Calne Ca is done!

I haven't gotten to watching the Frame Arms anime yet, but I am quite curious about it (I'm very behind with anime and first want to get to watch Brave Witches haha). As far as I know the only mecha musume connection is because of the artist being Humikane Shimada. And the characters having model kits/other figures from their designs of course. ;)

I'm also not really impressed with the Gourai Cu-Poche, I think it looks a bit too bland? I would have liked more details or shading on the figure. If they pick up making her as an Figma, I hope she will get way more details!

No problem! :D How has it been going for you collection-wise? What is your most favorite recent purchase? Or did you not buy much because of your travelling?

Bye! :)
