Goodies from Japan
I managed to squeeze some time to actually do a proper post. Long story short, I’m bogged down with work, uni work and sick family members >.<
So, this package was actually received on the 28th of last month and I didn’t had time to update on the day =/
So, as you can see above, the contents of the box from my friend, Hectic. The other box was from Hobby Link Japan, and it contained clothes for Evelyn, more on that in another post :P
Famitsu (ãƒ•ã‚¡ãƒŸé€š) has been around for a loooooooong time, and as such, is one of the more respected series of game magazines in Japan. This is their Xbox360 line of magazines and this issue has a feature on iM@S Live For You! :3 It comes with two booklets of games I don’t have much interest in, and a poster of iM@S Live For You!!
Gemaga (ã‚²ãƒ¼ãƒžã‚¬) is a general game magazine rather than focusing on one system. This issue it also features iM@S Live For You! and includes a pencilboard of iM@S and a standard issue DVD, which happens to feature the iM@S Live For You! Trailer, exclusive interview/radio show with Azusa and Chihaya’s voice actors, and the standard package of the latest trailers from across the world… most in Japanese tho XD
Unlike the others, Dengeki Moeoh (é›»æ’ƒèŒçŽ‹) is really about the artists. There’s usually only two reasons why I would buy a Dengeki Moeoh, one is that Komatsu Eeji is featured, or there’s special goodies. This issue it had special goodies XD This time last year, Dengeki Moeoh gave out a year long calender featuring scantly clad girls (or completely naked) with bands of colour with the dates of the month across certain erogenous zones XD Well, this year they released another since the previous one has expired.
The calendar is just absolutely drool inducing, I salivate at the thought of seeing the next month image when it’s near the end of the month!
POP Wonderland: Cinderella
Remember that old post about childrens’ books? Well, there’s been a new addition to the series, Cinderella. POP has done another great series of illustrations for Cinderella, and the book is also the same great quality. Just a reminder that this is an excellent book for easy Japanese reading as it also contains furigana, and gives you an excuse to buy some loli merchandise XD
Moeyo! Ground self-defence force school
This is a series of educational books from publisher Ikaros. The artist for Moeyo! Ground self-defence force school (èŒãˆã‚ˆï¼é™¸è‡ªå¦æ ¡) is Takeshi Nogami, who happens to also draw some nice H manga XD
The book is choc-a-block full of info on the ground self-defence force, from it’s tactics to the equipment used. A must have for any otaku who happens to be a military nut as well, though knowledge of Japanese is a must if you wish to truly appreciate this book (which I lack ^^; hehe)
Also by Takeshi Nogami, a manga about chicks and tanks, not much to say other than it’s fairly heavy on tanks and scantly clad girls driving them.
iM@S: MASTER LIVE 00 Shiny Smile
Arg, a new line of CDs by iM@S, my wallet is crying in anguish! This first one features Shiny Smile, and also includes a bonus DVD with footage of the performances. A must have for any iM@S fan.
iM@S: MASTER LIVE 01 REM@STER A
This next CD features most of the remix A type of the songs which are available in iM@S: Live For You! Some are ok, some aren’t. My particular favourite is Ohayo! Asa Gohan (ãŠã¯ã‚ˆã†ï¼ï¼æœã”é£¯) as it’s turned into some sort of mega hyper sort of thing XD Recommended to any iM@S fan :3
3500 Microsoft Points: iM@S:L4U! LE Card A
My point pot is getting low….damn iM@S planes in AC6. So I decided to rectify this by purchasing a point card, and it so happens that they have iM@S limited edition ones for sale :3
Prism Ark Tsundere Dakimakura
Now, I already have a hug pillow, Kenshin from Sengoku Rance, but this is the first one I’ve bought by itself. Prism Ark is a H game that has some gorgeous moe art. It also has an anime, which I haven’t watched @_@ As you can see, the pillow cover features two sides of Priecia, being quite delectable, especially with her facial expressions which just makes me want to do awful things to the pillow…^^; This is a HobbyStock exclusive as well.
So that’s the overview of the recent package I received, I’m quite busy lately so I won’t be able to update for the next week or so I think. I’ll try my best since I have a few things I’d like to share with you guys :3 Look forward to it!

Dengeki Meoh?! Never heard of it XD, well I’m clearly a noob in terms of japanese anime magazines, currently the ones I know best are Megami, Dengeki Hime and NewType, Hobby Magazines don’t count :P
Belela-san’s last blog post..Caramell Dansen, world domination?

Prim3’s last blog post..Happy Birthday to Prim3!
I envy you people with easy access to buying stuff from Japan…. I’d love to get that issue of famitsu or any of the Im@s stuff or even the Dengeki Moeoh! All of it looks cool!
And my point cards haven’t come in yet…..(I bought both of the different versions so I could get all the cool outfits and items and song remixes and stuff…… so much to buy, so little funds)
Okay those anime goodies I want!!! Your lucky to get something like that!!! I want >_<!!!
Rin’s last blog post..Trip to AnimeXtreme
Would’ve bought that “Moeyo! Ground self-defence force school” magazine, but cash is a bit tight this month. Too many things to spend on, too many 1/6 kitbashes that needs to be finished.
Hangmen’s last blog post..DESTINATION HONG KONG: DAY 6, DAY 7, END
You know, I’m wondering when Bandai will be releasing special editon Gundam models with IM@S decals…
i can see you love iM@S alot haha. I wanna get a dakimakura too!
There are many goodies we cant get from our local shops, not even kinokuniya. And a knock on the door by the postman is always a pleasant surprise.
misakichii’s last blog post..Nendoroid åˆéŸ³ãƒŸã‚¯ by GoodSmile
@zqube, it’s always nice to have one near ya XD
@gordon, thanks :3 Enjoy your stay here XD
@Kirakun, come back to Australia already!
@ron~, private photos~ XD
@KevinP, I liked Master Live 01 ;_;
@Belela-san, you MUST grab at least one Dengeki Moeoh!!
@suneo, POP always makes cute images XD
@Prim3, and so little time!
@Sagara117, Tell me about it, if I had it my way I’d buy every item there is for iM@S, but that’d cost more than the xbox itself!
@Rin, but but, I’m so poor ;_;
@Hangmen, lol, yea, I would of bought more if i didn’t have a thing called a budget @_@
@Wavehawk, or special edition Gundam mecha musume clothes for iM@S…
@misakichii, I dunno what I’ll do with the Dakimakura…I don’t even have the pillow =/
Nice goodies. Pillow form Prism Ark its a Kawaii :)
Uzumaki174’s last blog post..Anime desktop !!!
The box looks a little broken. I hope nothing was damaged during shipping.
Hectic3’s last blog post..Going to Kyoto Animation
Seriously, Bioshock doesn’t interest you as much as that crappy idol game? You’ve got your priorities mixed up.
@Uzumaki174, Ya…too bad I can’t use it…
@Hectic, it was generally ok~
@KN9, Bioshock was a little dissapointing, I was hoping for more than a game which obviously has it’s roots on consoles rather than a PC game. System Shock 2 also raised the expectations for me as that was an excellent game. iDOLM@STER may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I’m sure you have games which I would consider crappy~ :3
