Today I took some pictures on my lightbox with my 70-210mm tele lens to see how well it does with closeup photography. Behold our tsundere princess in all her 3 figma forms!

Today, I came home to find the usual figma infestation on my table.

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.

Yes folks, I iz in AKL infiltratingz ur armegedonz. Armaggeddon Auckland was quite a bit bigger than Armaggeddon Christchurch, but contrary to my expectations, apparent anime fandom is not directly proportional to the size of the event. Here's my scoop on this event that I was actually heavily anticipating.

Whether or not its because of the sizzling Japanese summer or if its because of the really weird and really strange situation Shana and Yuuji were currently in probably isn't related. Its hard to understand how Alastor, being the king of fire and all, ever keeps his cool under awkward and frozen moments like these.

What made me chuckle today was Rin asking me what kind of drugs I was dealing to be able to get all these companions for her. I thought that that was pretty funny because I'm now way behind on making any figma comics lately. But since I've had a turn of events in RL, you'll see more coming in a bit.

After reading Artifact's article on the one final saving grace for outlawed browser IE, I felt that it was unfair that only Tomoyo got that treatment. So I have prepared for us Shana fans, a tribute to our queen. All the pictures are after the jump. Click on the picture and press Ctrl+A the same way you do on sankaku. Make sure you are on IE.

Today I went to pick Shana up from school. No, she's actually in high school, but she was waiting on the primary school side. It was Sunday but for some reason she had to attend some sort of student council meeting. I'd imagine it would be troublesome for kids to have to wear their uniforms even on a Sunday.
