Due to my brothers new interest in anime, visual novels(thats right, he’s progressing that fast!!) and light novels etc, I thought I’d get a couple from amazon, was gonna get like 5, but due to the Book Depository’s stupid shipping arrangement, I woulda had to pay £2.75 per book, which is a total rip, but if you think that normally they cost like £5-6($10) then its a good deal if its like £2.50 for the book itself and another £2.75 shipping… still.. I’d rather not all at once lol. So I just got two.
The Kanon boxset… I put off buying them for ages, shoulda got it at the same time I got Clannad really. Gurren Lagann I preordered, tis only part 1, 9-10 episodes + freebies(wooop!), can’t remember which. The two novels were not so much impulse buys as they were things I’d pondered over buying in the past lol. And I thought it’d be nice to try reading the book before I see the anime, since normally its the other way round. (Only got through eps 1-4 of Shana before I got distracted, same with Zero no Tsukaima.
Back in May, I decided to pick a few favourite Dollfie-related things, and buy them, partly out of paranoia they’d go out of stock or out of production, and partly because it would mean I’d have to get one fairly soon, otherwise these gorgeous bits n bobs would go to waste just sitting in storage. The dress you can see above is one of those things I’d seen before on different sites and ‘squeed’ at, if you will. And I found it on another site, EdenDoll. Lots of pretty things on their, the shoes are soooo gorgeous, but alas, I did not get any, I got the dress, and some spare elastic for a MSD. Now I know the site is good, arbeit a tad slow, but I think the dress had to be made to order or something, probably cos they forgot to update the stock or something. Anyways, tis a dress for an MSD, it came with an underskirt netting bit, to puff it out I guess, a ribbon-trail for the back(so cute!!), a head-bow, and a little bag! Oh and stockings!! I have the eyes and nightdress from before, so now all I need is a spare wig and some shoes. And I’m set for when I get dear Mabel.
Back to the DVD’s now.
You gotta love how there are teeth, right? Right?
As well as…
The main reason I decided to preorder was due to the freebies. Yoko’s signiture hairpin, as a badge, the LED drill key, and the Gurren Brigade patch!
And then theres the Kanon boxset. With reverse covers for the 2 thinpack cases.
Pretty, pretty Kanon. I tried watching with the dub, but it just wasn’t the same(=god-awful…), they coulda at least got Crispin Freeman to do Yuuichi, as he does seem to do the dub for most of Sugita-kun’s roles, Hideki, Yuuichi, that gay dude from Onegai Twins(lol). But not in Kanon sadly… and Makoto’s dub actress was nothing like Makoto…. not good enough, so I just have it on in Japanese even if I’m not reading the subs.
Thats it for now. Not expecting anything else this month really. My brothers Yuki figma came today though, and now he’s threatening to buy Mikuru and Kyon aswell… must buy before he gets the chance…
