Summer Treats

Wanted to post this earlier. My fave chick has always been ♥Fujiko♥ undoubtedly, with Hibiki being second. If you don't know who the ladies are, then lemme tell ya: (l to r) Mikiri, Hibiki, Motoko and Fujiko<-♥. Anyways, here's some of the stuff that arrived during the summer while I was gone to Europe. It's all old stuff now. I have a few more items that I got but I'll give 'em a dedicated post. So here's the rundown of stuff. Masahiko Nakahira's Street Fighter Alpha vol.2 manga (released by UDON...hint hint ;)), Lives vol.2 (JPN), Change 123 vol.5 (JPN), Until Death Do Us Part vol.5 (JPN), High School of the Dead vol.2 (JPN), Ukigumo Momojinden vol.4 (JPN), Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex Solid State Society Limited Edition (R1), Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex: The Laughing Man (2-disc HK R3), Blue Dragon Complete Guide (CHN) and Full Metal Panic: The Second Raid vol.2-4 (R1).

Yeah, I got FMP:TSR late only cuz I seen it already and getting these volumes together (so late) cost me only about $15 (CDN) a piece. Watching it English and hearing Allison Keith (Melissa) trying to speak Cantonese is just as funny (and bad) hearing Neya Michiko. The English ADR director didn't even try to get the actors to pronounce it right. They simply copied the horrible (& funny) JPN seiyuus enunciations. So yeah, nothing really out of the blue in my swag as it's the same old items that I've continued to get. My GitS: SAC collecting seems to be done for now. I didn't even know that there's gonna be a R1 Laughing Man. Meh, the R3 costs much cheaper and is exact replica of the R2 w/ added Cantonese track, CHN & ENG subs. I won't be getting the Individual 11 'movie' cuz I didn't like the story as much and there's nothing added (as I saw it and had it on my computer a year ago). I'll have another post soon. An update on my Amazon Japan order: increased once again w/ the addition of My-HiME★DESTINY Prison Cast a couple of days ago ^^;. And yes I can't wait to get my hands on this...soon very soon.
