Picture 1 in [Loot from Tokyo]

I finally got around to unpacking my suitcase which was completely filled with my figures. Besides the 12 books of doujins I got from the upstairs of Toranoana, one of my favorite shops in Akihabara. I also peered up the many stairwells to find figures that I could not find on online sites that struck my fancy, and I came across quite a few.

Picture 1 in [Day 4 in Tokyo]

Our main highlight today is Nakano. Actually I came here to see lenses. No seriously! Its not like I got drawn into Patty's subliminal messaging song with the Nakano Broadway constantly repeating in my head. >.>

Picture 1 in [Alpha Omega Klan Klang Statue]

After much procrastination I have finally decided to open my Lt. Klan loliform statue from Macross Frontier. I've actually been eyeing this figure for a while. This figure actually comes from Alpha Omega, which is another break from my Max Factory/Good Smile streak. This is because they have been only been producing crappy statues and figmas lately. Not that figmas are a problem, crappy statues are though.

Picture 1 in [Macross Frontier 18]

This week's Macross Frontier shows where Sheryl was before her life as a star. The flashbacks showed a very very pitiful beggar girl foraging the slums and waste dumps for sustenance. Her hair was messy and her clothes were rags. She had no life to speak of until Grace brought her in, only to use her as a tool to further her accomplices' plans.

Picture 1 in [Nyan Nyan 17]

This week's Nyan Nyan is an all new episode of awesome moeloli tsundere explosions, big beautiful explosions of Reaction missiles and best of all, Ranka's REVENGE. This episode continues to show why Macross Frontier is just so fucking awesome.

Picture 1 in [What 'bout my star!?]

After watching Macross Frontier 15, I think that my suspicions that the Vajra attacks on Frontier is a conspiracy are confirmed. It seems there are perpetrators roaming the space between Frontier and Galaxy, and that the past distress communications, skirmish with the battleship from Galaxy, close encounters and the yellow-haired pretty boy were all pawns in a massive game of chess played by a bunch of wizards in Galaxy. It just begs the question... why? Why all the plans? Why all the effort to bring danger to Macross Frontier, the closest humans have come to towards the center of the Galaxy?

Picture 1 in [Macross Frontier 11]

This episode is a little less exciting than the rest. Though Ranka being an old man is a twist of things. This episode is basically a fanservice/filler episode with an unusual amount of swimsuit and lingerie scenes crammed wherever the story permits. This episode basically celebrates Ranka's success as an idol and starts doing lots of publicity jobs like photoshoots and doing performances towards her first live performance at the dragon stadium.
