The Lovers: Escaflowne Kickstarter Goodies Are Finally Here!!

Hey guys!

So it’s been awhile since I last wrote up a “Recent Purchase” post. One reason being that I have little spending money, and the other that I get too excited about little things I buy and just end up posting it on Twitter. Like those terrible pictures about the YOI Merchandise I got at Kino that one day

But today after breakfast, the mail lady came to our door and left a box for me. At first I was like,  ha she got the wrong house again I haven’t bought anything recently, but when I checked the sender I nearly screamed! Warning: crappy pictures incoming

Now, before I get into the contents of the box, I wanted to go over what Tier I got for the Vision of Escaflowne real quick (though if you read this post then you probably already know).  Continue reading The Lovers: Escaflowne Kickstarter Goodies Are Finally Here!!

ACEN and FanimeCon Haul!

To think it’s been about two months since I last wrote something legit on this blog (how time flies and money disappears…)

As many of you know, Con-season started in May for me with ACEN (Anime Central), which is this tiny little thing (biggest con in the Midwest) happening in my “hometown” that I’ve been attending for YEARS now. And right after I went to Fanime, which is a convention out in San Jose, CA. It was my first time attending and the reason for it is down below, hehe Continue reading ACEN and FanimeCon Haul!

February Book Haul! No Space on the Shelf…

Hey guys! Here I am again, spending my money after only just receiving my check…

qhoshi_-sick005_010If you guys saw, I posted a picture of some of my buys on Twitter, but I knew I just had to tell you all on here! So yesterday my brother and I went to get our car’s oil changed and tires checked. Since we were pretty far out, I decided we could stop by at Kinokuniya to pick up my books. It was not on the way over but I figured that if we were out already, I wouldn’t mind driving around. And the store had contacted me about my order coming in so if anything, that was my excuse for going.

As we were leaving the dealer, I then randomly thought, I wonder if there’s a Half Priced Books around here…It turns out there was! So in addition to Kinokuniya, we also stopped at Half Priced Books. There’s actually a HPBs ‘near’ our house, but I wanted to check out a new one, just to see what their selections was like. Checking this place out really depleted my wallet

Now, before I start showing you pictures and giving titles, this will be the first part of a two part post. All the books here will be manga and light novels, while part 2 will have the novels I bought (yes, I read books without pictures sometimes :P), as well as explaining why it took me so long to finally get them/read them Continue reading February Book Haul!

New Books: Pre-Thanksgiving Treat

Hey guys~

Just wanted to show you all some new books that I’m really excited about! You see, today was both one of the worst days of my life and best. Worst because I had to go grocery shopping for curry, sushi, and gyoza ingredients, though that’s not the bad part. The bad part is that the store that has many of the essential ingredients is about a 2 hour drive away with 3 tolls.

There was major traffic and since there’s a lot of road construction…well, I’ll leave it up to your imaginations. The only information I’ll give you is that I was out for about 7 hours and was only inside of a store for about 2 hours total (I went to two different stores).

However, it was also a very good day because I went to Kinokuniya~ And being the spender that I am, I bought myself some books 😀

I was supposed to hold off on buying any new books, and I’d been doing a great job so far. I think my last purchase was done September? During the whole Yaoi-con and AWA weekend. But then I fell to temptation. I actually brought some money with me on the trip to Arlington Heights because I knew I wasn’t going to be able to resist.  Continue reading New Books: Pre-Thanksgiving Treat
