katsudonkatsudon Play-Along TsukkomiI don't even want to be the main character in my own life

À Propos

Happy to be here, and looking forward to discussing figures everyone. I don't really get to discuss them much in real life because my friends don't collect figures and usually have no idea what I'm talking about...

So anyways, glad that I'm now among company that shares my love for anime, tokusatsu, giant robots, 2D fighters, and all sorts of other things that 'normal' people tend to not 'get' or just aren't very fond of.

I would like to say something witty or charming here, but words are unfortunately failing me at the moment so I'll just leave my bio as it is for now- feel free to say hi!

katsudon (Il y a 1 mois) #19956853Thank you sir, I appreciate that. And yeah, I can see that actually- sounds like she's basically going to become a savant. I have a few friends with siblings that have been diagnosed with similar conditions and lead perfectly normal lives while excelling in certain categories. It's definitely not going to be a easy transition, but I have faith that you and the missus will make this work.
It took me a while to distinguish between 'want' and 'need' so I can totally understand that! I've been selling a decent bit of stuff as well, and it feels kind of cathartic to be honest. While it's kind of sad to let some of these go, I'm trying to be more financially responsible and start investing for the future. Not going to give up collecting, but slowing down/cutting back won't kill me. Life is funny sometimes isn't it? There are times where it feels like everything is going your way and times where it feels like everything that could go wrong goes wrong... Them's the brakes I suppose. Don't let these roadblocks get in the way of you acquiring Iowa though! Her smile needs to be protected.
You're forgiven. I know she's not the most compelling character but I'm drawn to her for whatever reason. (I like my women crazy, I suppose) Here's hoping they give her more development in season two. And yeah, Mari isn't a great character by herself but when she's with Kanan everything is wonderful because yuri is the purest form of love and Kanamari is so canon it's not even funny. I haven't gotten aboard that many ships for Sunshine yet, but there's still time! I'm all in on the Yoshiko and Hanamaru ship though, as that is the truth. (the amount of fanart that exists of them together seems to indicate a lot of the fandom agrees with me)
I doubt I'm going to win, but if I DO... I will make this happen, mark my words.
Think I'm going to gamble on Ranko after she releases- I'm hoping that people realize that Alter is out of their damn minds charging that much for a non-exclusive and she drops to a more reasonable price. Or she doubles/triples in price like the SIF set and I die a little inside.
Ramlethal has a really appealing design, but I don't like the way she plays. Depending on how she turns out I might get her? Definitely not a must-own for me but Max Factory generally does good work. I don't think she'll go up after release so if you want her, I think you can safely wait until she's out, no need to pre-order. Isn't she a bit... revealing though? Is that going to pass inspection?

AMIGO!


A savant? Dude, that would be awesome! Let’s hope for the best, only time will tell.

Yeah, I think I am getting to that point when I can finally tell apart the wants from the needs. For example, I feel like I’m not that interested in the Saekano nendos like I did at first. Mostly because Katou is my favorite one, but I really don’t like the faceplates her nendo got. I mean, all I needed was just a faceplate and I was in, I swear. And without Katou, it kinda feels pointless to have the other girls. But then, I almost feel physical pain when I ask for a cancellation, especially to AmiAmi since I have made so many in a little over 3 years, so I don’t want they to think: “so what will be his excuse this time?”. Ughh, I hate that feeling! But business is business, right? And you need money to do them and I currently don’t have that much to do any business Xp. Anyway, it took a bit of a sacrifice, but nendo Iowa is on her way!

And you hit home when you say there are times when everything that could go wrong goes wrong… my feelings during 4 out of 5 months of this year so far. But hope cannot be lost! Our time will come… it may take longer than we would like to, but we’ll get there!

Now… I gotta make a confession… I recently saw Cinderella Girls Season 2… and I loved it! I’m sorry, but Sunshine just pales in comparison. I feel that, for a 12 episode season, it covered A LOT. And I just love that approach they do to the actual entertainment business and the different reactions from different girls. The only problem is… there are a shit-ton of idols in that show is just impossible to keep track of them all (or only like one ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)). I especially loved the episodes for Mika and Miria and the Triad Primus arc, but boy, did they break my baby Uzuki bad TT3TT… I mean, that second to last episode…


OHHHH, LE DRAMA! Ganbarimasu, Uzuki! TT*TT


Mmmm, I’m not so sure if you should let that Ranko go. I mean, if you feel like you will try to get her anyway, I think pre-order is the best time to do so. I mean, Alter line for Love Live is not getting cheaper (still waiting for Maki to be re-released) and this Ranko is just so amazing and Idolm@aster is just at the is just at the peak of its popularity, just like Fate… I mean, just look at all those figures! They just keep coming! And well, being Alter’s greatest work in recent years, I just have a hunch this figure won’t get cheaper any time soon. I’ve been wrong in the past. I just saw and she's still available at AmiAmi, which I find strange, considering how awesome this figure looks. It's a tough call, that's for sure!

You really think Ramlethal is that NSFW? Man, now my mind is clouded! I think I just gonna ask Mrs. Secret-O straight to the face if she finds her lewd or anything. I mean, if she says something like “if you want it, just get it and that’s it”, then I’ll know it’s not Ok to get it and further attempts of persuasion should be avoided at all times.

katsudon (Il y a 1 mois) #19623855Greetings sir! For the most part, all is well- have a few personal issues that I'm dealing with, but it's nothing I can't handle.
I am sorry to hear that, I can't even imagine what you and your wife are going through- but I sincerely hope everything works out both emotionally and financially. It sucks that you might have to cut back on collecting, but at the end of the day family is more important. And besides, you can always just track down some of these things on the aftermarket you know?
Well, it might just be one of those situations where you have to look over all your pre-orders and ask yourself "is this a want or a need?" I've been giving up quite a few of mine as I realized that I have a really bad habit of ordering things on impulse and have been trying really hard at working on my self-control.
I... Actually just finished buying all of season one of Sunshine. I'm very emotionally invested in it, even watched a stream of Aqours first live at a movie theater downtown with a friend of mine. Volumes 5-7 also has a raffle for a chance to win tickets to their second live! Hold my beer, I'm going in. I thought the first half was a bit weak, but the second half had some of the best writing the series has ever seen- that, and the songs are all fantastic. Can't wait for season two in the fall! And yes, You is quite lovely- that is a smile worth protecting. Not crazy about Mari, but I love Kanan and the Kanamari ship is delightfully gay that I find it hard to not be behind 110%.
What did you say about Yoshiko? How dare you sir, I challenge you to fisticuffs. You leave my demon-worshipping chuuni waifu with the voice of an angel and them child-bearing hips alone. Personally, I don't care for Rikka at all but I'm kind of thirsty for Ranko. On that note, are you going to order Alter's new figure of her? She looks absolutely stunning, but man... What is that price? I need to think this over.
Drop me a line anytime sir, it's always a pleasure to hear from you! :D
Hoping you will solve your issues in the best possible manner.

Well, it is strange. You know, one of the specialist we spoke with told us that our daughter could actually have an advantage compared to other people in certain areas of her life, mostly studies and work, but what we need to work on is in her social skills... and to make her feel as normal as possible so she won't use her condition as a excuse to do and say whatever she likes. So it was kind of a warning for us, like saying: "don't give her the key to control you". We have a long road to walk in front of us, but we're positive.

Well, I have seem all of my orders over and over again... and well, they all are needs xD. I mean, of course, they all are expandable if need be... but I still feel I'm not there yet. However, our car broke down last week, so there's that TT_TT... I'm telling you, evil forces are surely working extra shifts to make me bend my knees, but I'm pushing things as far as I can, damn it! Life, you can't do this to me, not when Nendo Iowa is within my reach!!

Ohhhh... so you are an apostle of Yohane and accidentally hit a nerve back there... well...

Sorry

However, I'm speaking from the heart, I swear. Yoshiko feels forced and doesn't blend that well with the rest of the girls. I didn't know there's gonna be 2nd season, so let's see if I find her better the next season. I surely found Hanayo way better in the 2nd season of the original LL and she remains up there in the trinity of Muse, along Kotori and Eli, so who knows! My heart is right there, Yoshiko... just come and get it if you can.

And I agree with you regarding Mari. Not too crazy about her... by herself... but when she's on screen with Kanan... oh boy, oh boy!

Sweet Yuri, the guiltiest of my pleasures

And I think nobody can deny the yuri juices oozing out of Sunshine, M I Rite? I mean, c'mon! We have Ruby and Zuramaru, Chika and Riko with a side dish of You... and well, there's Dia and Yoshiko, but that's never happening... or is it? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Anyway, crossing fingers, arms and legs for you to be a lucky winner of a ticket to their next live... but are we talking about going to the ACTUAL live... for real? Holy crap, dude!

And that Ranko figure... oh Gosh, she's amazing. Truly a work of art... but considering the extra expenses I'll have for my daughter's therapy, it is just out of my reach. I mean, I could get her if I completely dedicate a budget of 3 or 4 months to get her... but I've also been eyeing this jewel item #287700, which I feel will be just as expensive if not even more expensive than Ranko. What do you think? I'm not even that much of a Guilty Gear fan... but I find this figure completely glorious and I just want her so freaking bad!

Howdy

It's been a while, my friend. How are you doing?

On my side, well, I have been having a hard time at work lately with tons of stuff to do and I'm not feeling as healthy as I used to, but still trying to do my best.

Family is Ok. My younger daughter was diagnosed with Asperger syndrome recently, so we had to make a few changes at home. I mean, I don't see this as a bad thing at all, but investment will be required heavily, both economically and emotionally.

Hobby at the end will be impacted since we need to take her to therapy, so I have been tempted to cancel a few things, but I have made my numbers and I should probably be OK with the orders I have now... but can't say I will be able to keep the same order habits xD. But anyway, I'm getting to a point where I have almost all nendos I wanted... but those rereleases man, those damn rereleases!

Anyway, anime-wise, I was FINALLY able to watch LL Sunshine and gotta say... I'm not too crazy about it. There are still a few things I liked... specially You Watanabe, she is the loveliest girl I have seem in a while, good overall stats, nice looking girl with uniform fetish and looks great in a swimsuit... I mean, I feel it was tailor-made for me. But the story isn't an actual strength in Sunshine. Sometimes it feels a bit forced... but then there was the Kanan-Mari episode, and gotta say I'm not fond of shipping, but that episode in particular...

https://media.giphy.com/media/Xh1vgIUkJbPKo/giphy.gif

Overall, a fun series to watch, but it falls short in comparison to the original Love Live. And unlike the original LL cast where I liked every girl, I just couldn't stand Yoshiko. I thought I would love her and she would be as cute as a Rikka in Chunibyo or Ranko in Im@s, but no... it wasn't like that AT ALL!


Hoping to read from you soon! See ya around!
