Happy New Year & 4th Anniversary! It is hard to think that I have been blogging for 4 entire years. Although for the past couple years the site has been pretty quiet in terms of comments and reader interaction, there hasn’t been a single dead month with no updates. That’s something I’m proud of, and this site will continue to remain active for the foreseeable future.
I’ve always wanted to celebrate my blog’s anniversary, and this year I could finally do so for the first time with a giveaway. Before getting into the details, I need to note that I can send physical items to US only. You may enter if you are international, but the only prize you can get is a $5 gift.
Here is how the giveaway is going to work. First, to enter the giveaway, leave a comment in this post below and include in your comment: a link to your favorite post on my site and your top choices of giveaway items from the following list.
- Infinite Stratos Sticker-Poster Pack (1 pack)
- Mini-Ika Musume Rubber Strap
- Kobato。Ultra Fiber Cloth Set
- Little Busters! Character Song ~Saya~ Music CD
- Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu Japanese Manga Vol. 1 & 2
- Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii wake ga Nai Japanese Light Novel Vol. 1 & 2
- $5 gift via Paypal (The only choice if you’re outside USA)
*Note: Due to the weight of books, if you choose the manga or light novel set, I will have to kindly ask you to pay for the shipping costs.
From the comments, I will randomly select three winners. Before I go on, I would like to give special thanks to TakoTalk, a frequent reader of my site since mid-2011. Thanks for sticking with me, and it is about time you get rewarded for it. If you enter the giveaway, you will be joining the three other winners in another round of random selection to see who gets first picks. Lastly, a special mention to darkandchoco. I see that you have been clicking the Like button, and I appreciate it.
For anyone else who is a frequent visitor, but have never commented, now might be a good time to introduce yourself. For new visitors, I hope you enjoy my site and perhaps come back again after the giveaway. The most useful navigation links are on the left side. See “Navigation” under my About page for details.

One of my favorite posts is the Sleeping Kureha photoshoot!
First choice – Mini-Ika Musume Rubber Strap
If that gets taken then either the Infinite Stratos Sticker-Poster Pack or the Ore no Imouto Light Novel Set.
2. First round of random selection from comments to select three winners.
