Gonna take after my fave character (in SSGPXCF) Kaga here and go on a straight instant noodle run for the next while ^_^
...(and probably March's too) is not looking too good financially as i got quite a few stuff ordered and coming in the next two months. After a two month hiatus of no R2s, this month will hit me big. The most obvious reason would be the My-ZHiME ZWEI OVA vol.2 FP LE. However, over the past couple of months i've added quite a few items to that lone order. HiME fans would know about the Big Bang Project that has been going on w/ Sunrise and thus quite a few HiME/ZHiME related items have been/will be released/ing this month. So, currently my R2 HiME/ZHiME order will include My-ZHiME Zwei vol.2 LE, My-Otome Saga ~Ayane Kourin ♥ Hen~ novel, My-HiME & My-Otome figure special (*sniff sniff*...since i don't collect figs anymore and must oogle at 'em), My-HIME Destiny ~Ryu no Fujo/Miko~ novel, Barrage Rei Hiroe Artworks (cuz y'all know i'm also a huge Hiroe fan) and GitS SAC SSS visual book (cuz y'all know i'm a huge GitS SAC/Motoko fans as well ^^). I haven't decided about the My ZHIME Ryuu to Otome no Namida manga yet, since Hisayuki has no part, but if the artwork is good then I might get it. Though i did check out the website of the artist doing the manga and his/her work seems meh. Besides that order, i've got quite a few mangas (HK & JPN versions) coming. Some old, slightly rare PSX, PS2 and PSP games coming (you'll soon know). There's also a ton of new games i'm looking forward to in Feb & March as well, especially fighting games w/ 3 for the PS2!!! Some R1 animes mostly arriving in the middle of March. Lastly, some sweet ass tail lights for my car.
April will be pretty good as I only got My-HiME vol.7 SE w/ box and Black Lagoon SE vol.1 w/ box planned. Speaking of My-HiME vol.7 box, that box looks pretty fugly IMO. Now it's 100x better the crap ass vol.1 box + shirt in terms of quality but the art from that one shot i saw looks crappy. With the hundreds of HiME art to choose from, they had to go with the coloured production sketches...WTF x_x. At least the 1st box gave us promo art. I hope the other side contains a decent pic. The box looks to be a bit big for me. My room is packed as it is and i certainly don't need an huge average looking box to take up space in my collection. Thus, i'm whole heartedly disappointed w/ the R1 release in terms of packaging and i don't want to talk about the authoring of the 1st 4 volumes. With that aside, I'm looking forward to getting the final volume of one of my fave series ever (when i'll rewatch it remains a question as i've watched vol.9 of the R2 TOO MANY times already ^^). Speaking of HiME, it seems Bandai Ent. finally announced their license of My-ZHiME/Otome officially. The release date is not far off from the final volume of HiME either (June). Great news for fans. Y'all know i'm like the biggest HiME/ZHiME fan, however, unlike HiME, I don't plan on double dipping since a)the series wasn't as good as HiME b)not e'nuff of my trio (Natsuki, Mai & Midori 4 the 4gotten) c)I 'think' i've spent just about enough on the R2s ;) d)Bandai Ent.'s release of MH sucked ass and their releases over the past couple of year have been sucking ass, though there are a few exceptions (ie. GitS) and e)i need to spend that money elsewhere (school, car, gf, booze etc.) ^^. Anyways I'm happy for the announcement. Celebrate!
Hope y'all have a good Super Bowl weekend, that's if ya watch American Football. Pizza and Booze all day tomorrow...oooh yeeaah! There had better be some good commercials :P.
