Sister Sister

Finally, the order that i had made over a year ago has finally arrived!! Sux though cuz i got charged shiipping on the spot :-(. One who's been following my blog knows that i had preordered the queen's blade book Reina/Leina for ages. So yeah, that's how far back this order went. Throughout the year, i made many changes to it by adding and canceling a bunch of items. So as you can see, i had preordered the late great Horibe's Yours artbook almost half a year ago (which i've mentioned about) and added the ZHiME Zwei LE OVA a couple months ago to the order. On the topic of Zwei LE, sorta disappointed about the artwork in the illustration book. was hoping for at least 1 or 2 new artworks or some promo art for Zwei. Sadly, all are old artworks that I have either already seen; already own on print; or downloaded ages ago. Nothing new for me here :(, though it's good to have the ones i've downloaded on print albeit small. Anyways, the pic below contains stuff i got recently in November. Since I got a Wii now, i decided go for some semi-rare (and very awesome) gamecube games i've been wanting to own for years. These are the Silicon Knights games w/ Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem and Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes (cuz i'm a pretty big MGS fan and MGS1 has always been my fave). Got Street Fighter II #5 last week and Street Fighter Legends #3 some weeks ago. I just realized i forgot to take a pic of Victorious Boxers 2 US version...oh well whatev (not like ppl care i guess). Enjoy.

Beautiful indeed R8, great post...oh and how is Victorious Boxers 2 by the way? I've been meaning to pick it up, but I haven't had time. Well, for $10 bucks it can't be too bad right?

Nice. A nearly a year of waiting is sure painfully anticipating. I'm currently waiting for my yesasia and hlj order.

@ somber: heh, thanks. had this pic in my folder for a long time. been waiting to use it for such an occasion ^^.

@ pb19: for 10 bucks it's totally worth it. The gameplay is awesome (though i still prefer the fight night series). Plus, it's great if your a fan of the anime and/or manga, especially the manga. There's tons of story and cutscenes(though no voiceovers), so it's a real treat for the fans.

@ fh: well, the thing is, i wasn't really anticipating the items (save for Zwei, though that one's recent :P :-D), which is why i let slide until now.
