A Howling Good Time
Remember in my last blog post that I had another Busou Shinki figure ordered, but I was saving that until it arrived at my home to talk about it since it was showing up later than the figures that I got last week? Well, the figure has arrived, so now...

When it comes to collecting figures, this week has been a busy period of me. For starters, this week, my second pre-ordered figure of 2011 finally shipped, with me receiving it in the mail on Thursday. As you'd probably guessed by the pictures tha...

Manaka Joins the Dungeon Exploration Party
Yeah, I pretty much admit that things have been slow recently. Part of it can be contributed to the fact that my next preordered figure won't be coming out until later this month (with the next one coming out in June and most likely after the deadlin...

I Summon Dark Magician Girl in Figure Mode
On Monday, I received my first pre-ordered figure of 2011. While I myself am not into YuGiOh (outside of the abridged series and picking up a few games, I don't follow any of the YuGiOh titles), I admit that I do like the Dark Magician Girl (or Black...

Katsucon 17 Part 2: Cosplay
Now for the second part of my Katsucon report: the cosplay pictures. After a lack of interesting the previous year (I think that can be blamed on the blizzard that hit the Washington D. C. area days before the convention), there was plenty of phot...

Katsucon 17 Part 1: Dealers' Room Loot
