Guess what came in my mailbox before christmas!
I received a package from AmiAmi yesterday, and decided to do a quick photoshoot of these gems contained inside. Marisa's surprisingly everything I expected from a quality Touhou figure and more. So glad I shelled out cash for this. It took...

Remember, I showed you the Japanese flat I rented? There was a small balcony-like structure. Want to see the view from it? Well, enjoy! Here is the neighborhood. The 'backyard' is probably a better word. And here are the neighbors.

I was actually going to add Mirim first (my more recent purchase), but for some reason I can't get into the manufacturer's page (MegaHouse). Since I just pre-ordered another figure based on Tony Taka's drawing, this one seemed like a fair choice.

How do you like our flowers?
Minna-san! The question of the day is: How do you like our flowers? Myself, I think their main minus is that flowers don't deal with figurines. But if noone is awfully scared with them, we'll stay with these browny flowers for a while.
