Wow, so I haven't posted in over a month. I've gotten a few things, wanted a few things, etc, etc. I got a solar powered Maneki Neko, or beckoning cat, that is a symbol of fortune and good luck in the East, especially Japan. Next up, we have Winoa, which is Japanese wine chocolate (yes, wine inside of chocolate, which is actually alcoholic. Just 0.8%, but still, alcoholic chocolate, holy hell, Japan, I adore you. I also got a box of 10 Dragon Quest Items: Missing Metal Equipment, of which I did not receive the entire set, but I alrady had 2 of em in all fairness (before I figured out that buying a box, if you want all of the set, is usually cheaper in the long run than buying individuals over a spread out period of time. Yes I know this is obvious, but that was before I was obsessed with getting entire sets of stuff, still pissed about my Princess Moonbrook, hmph, fuck you SquEnix) so only 1 double in the whole box has to be a personal best for stingy Square Enix Toys. And finally this update I got a box of Keroro Chara Cell Vol. 4, which are kinda Shokugan, kinda something like you'd find in a Gashapon machine. They're of superior quality to your average Gashapon machine, but they're the right size, and they come in a cool container shaped like Keroro, Tamama or Giroro's heads making different faces. I didn't get the secret figure, but I ended up with all 12 normal ones, so w00t. I won't list all of my wants this week, suffice it to say I have weeks where I want very little, and there are weeks like these where I could prolly spend a quarter of my yearly salary in a day, hehe. I'll post up some aaaaaawesome Shakugan no Shana and Haruhi Suzumiya PVC figures that I'm in love with.

- Shakugan no Shana - 1/8 Shana Red Ver. 2 PVC Figure
-
Shakugan no Shana - 1/6 Shana Moe Art Ver. PVC
-
Shakugan no Shana - 1/8 Shana Toranoana Ver. PVC
-
Fate / Hollow Ataraxia - 1/8 Saber in Maid dress PVC Figure

The ever-popular "Beckoning Cat", or Maneki Neko, I just had to get the gold one. When the sun hits him his paw moves and his head bows, makes me feel empowered by the Sun Goddess 天照大神様 ^_^;

Wine chocolate? Hell yes! (and yes it does have an alcohol content, it's like 0.8%, but it IS alcoholic ~_^)

From the Dragon Quest series (there's definitely some series of this before it, I've ebayed it before and yikes is it expensive, like @_@ expensive) here is the "Missing Metal Equipment"

I didn't get the secret figure =/
