  • On Sale Today: Bandai’s Meyrin Hawke and Meer Campbell Voice I-doll PVCs. Why did they have to pick such dull, static poses? That said, the Meer is certainly contemplatable. [Akibajin Blog weighs in]
  • More goodies cloned from the Akibajin Blog: previews of Max Factory’s Morisaki Nao from Soul Link, Goodsmile’s Kasukabe Saki (Kaicho cosplay) from Genshiken, and Max Factory’s leaf bikini Naru from Love Hina. Also, a review of Gargoyle’s Genshiken gashapon. Ohno is the best of the bunch, although by and large they’re pretty hideous. :( a few more color shots of Yujin’s upcoming SR Yurie from Kamichu! round out Akibajin’s daily cornucopia.
  • The Figure Alternative blog continues its release schedule announcements with this comprehensive list of January’s bishoujo figure releases. Some highly anticipated items
  • Sights such as this remind me of the unhappy curse of early adoption (and supporting local retail establishments). Fifty percent off. Fifty percent. ;_;

As was perhaps to be predicted, I wound up heading to Akiba yesterday after work. Five hours on a train does wonders for the complexion, let me tell you. I tried to pace myself this time around in anticipation of this month’s later releases (Moegaku, Queen’s Blade, Rushuna, Ohno, a repair job for the heater in my room, etc); we’ll see how the whole “fiscal restraint” thing works this time around. Illustrated acquisitions report coming soon.
