「毎日楽しいの為に」 Flawless Passion
At long last, I am in Japan once again. This time, I will not be a temporary visitor here to shop and sight-see. For that reason, I am surprised at the amount of loots I ended up with. It is nowhere near the amount I purchased on my previous visits to Japan, but it is quite more than my recent loots this year. Besides getting lured by the crane game for the ご注文はうさぎですか towel, in my mind, all I did this month was buying a couple model kits and a few manga. Putting it that way, it doesn’t sound like a lot.
Here is everything new to my collection this month:
- ご注文はうさぎですか タオル Gochuumon ha Usagi desuka Towel
- [HG] ガンダムバルバトスルプス Gundam Barbatos Lupus
- [HG] グレイズ改 Graze Kai
- [HG] シュヴァルベグレイズ Schwalbe Graze
- ドラゴンマガジン ２０１６.１１ Dragon Magazine 2016.Nov.
- ニセコイ １＆２ Nisekoi Vol.1 & 2
- この島には淫らで邪悪なモノが棲む １ Kono Shima niha Midarade Jaakuna Mono ga Sumu Vol.1
- 今日のケロべロス ４ Kyou no Kerberos Vol.4
- クデリア コースター ＆ アトラ プチグラス（ガンダムカフェ） Kudelia Coaster & Atra Puchi Glass (Gundam Cafe)
Here are the manga I purchased. On the day I went to Book-Off, they happened to be doing a 50% Off sale for any manga ￥260 and under. Although there were a lot of books I am interested in reading, I restrained myself and only got 4 books. ニセコイ was a series that piqued my attention ever since 2 years ago. Now is a good opportunity for me to read the first two volumes and see if I will become a fan myself. The title and cover art for この島には淫らで邪悪なモノが棲む caught my eyes and didn’t let go. Browsing through the pages, I initially feared that this series may be too hardcore for me, but since I didn’t see any death or gruesome scenes regarding the main characters, I decided to buy it and read in detail.
Nearby the very same Book-Off I mentioned earlier was an Animate store. There, the November issue of Dragon Magazine contained some bonus goodies caught my eyes and I couldn’t help but wanted it. After much hesitation, here it is in my hands. I didn’t notice it at the time, but the magazine itself was a light novel magazine, with pages upon pages of daunting walls of text.
The bonus goodies were a set of 3 clear book covers from the series, ハイスクールD×D, デート・ア・ライブ, and 冴えない彼女の育てかた. All three of which are series I am interested in. The quality is really nice and the colors are vivid. I plan to hang them up as decoration over using them as book covers. If these had been just paper covers instead of translucent plastic, I can say that I definitely would not have wanted them enough to buy a magazine for.
Switching over to Gundam model kits, the first thing I did this month was going over to Akihabara to purchase the brand new HG Gundam Barbatos Lupus, along with a HG Graze Kai, which I have been meaning to buy prior to Japan. Being able to go buy the newest model kit on release date in person is special. Especially in the case of the HG Barbatos Lupus, where much like the original HG Gundam Barbatos’s release, the 1st editions came with special promo cards. Although not pictured, I also bought the MS Option Set 5 together with the HG Barbatos Lupus. Later on, I made another gunpla purchase, buying the HG Schwalbe Graze, and focusing on model kits from Tekketsu no Orphans given this opportunity to be in Japan while the second season is airing.
During this month, I was able to go eat at Gundam Cafe twice. Ordering from Tekkadan menu will get you an random paper coaster. For a bit extra cash, you can get a random puchi-sized glass cup. During my first time, luck was on my side as I pulled the Kudelia coaster and Atra glass cup. Because I wanted something with either Kudelia or Atra, and maybe Mikazuki, I am extremely satisfied with these two items. Since I didn’t want anything else, I gave whatever I pulled during the second time to a friend.
This ご注文はうさぎですか towel here was won from a cane game in Akihabara. Originally, I had no intention of getting this, but after much complication, here I am with the prize. Although I like the series, I have never liked mono-colored anime goods… Currently, I am hanging it up as a poster like so as the size is decently big. If I could get a full colored poster from ご注文はうさぎですか, I would like to replace this one day.
