Today, I got what I wanted for a whiiillee~
I have a friend who’s staying in Japan for a year on the JET program (teaching english etc). Now, he’s also a fairly obsessive otaku and a kind one at that, he’d get stuff that I wanted from Japan that would otherwise be unavailable, or too costly for me to get.Today two packages came in the mail from him :3
This is all the things he managed to get for me during that whole summer event period in Japan, I wish I had given him more money…
Again, apologies for crappy indoor shots~
I glee with excitement, my mouth salvating, my fingers wriggling, a gun in my pocket…
That’s how it was when I got home with the packages, I opened then up and began my exploration and documentation of the items for both this blog, and for my database of all things otaku (this is going past 14k AUD…and I still haven’t included some items…).
Aaah advertisements, I love the ones from Akihabara :3
Gao~! Finally got the Illya + Berserker plushie I’ve been trying to get for some time, and also the Saber Lion from Fate/Tiger Colosseum which is a Wonderfest Summer ’07 exclusive.
Rawr~! Nendoroid Saber Alter and the non-scale Saber & Irisviel of Fate/Zero, both by Goodsmile Company (MY BOX, MY BEAUTIFUL BOX~!!!!), both exclusive to Wonderfest summer ’07.
It’s possible that I’ll be bringing the Saber & Irisviel to Manifest for a photoshoot~ I’ll be scouting for places this Friday.
I’ve been so busy today that I haven’t even opened the figure boxes yet >.<

I managed to nab myself a super limited edition of Lucy Maria Misora maid version. The regular is pictured to the left in a white and red with green trims outfit, the boxed version is the white and black with gold trim. Only 950 were produced, 400 for Wonderfest Summer ’07 and 550 for limited online orders. You can check the site at Wave, although you can’t buy it anymore…
Excuse me while I drool all over the box…
The two Fate Fantasm Boxes come choc-a-block full of goodies that just shouts ï½·ï¾€â”â”â”â”â”â”(ï¾Ÿâˆ€ï¾Ÿ)â”â”â”â”â”â” !!!!! The first is Illya, it comes with a book with character illustrations and other articles, and the second half has some fan manga which was fairly cute. The box also includes Fate Character Trump playing cards, a bust of Illya with blood and a BerserCAR! >:3
The second box is Black Saber, my favourite, the book contains the regular stuff but the fan manga is so cute :3 Along with this box comes a Black Saber tapestry weighing approx 50 x 65cm, a Black Saber eyemask bust and a flashing LCD keychain
I now have three busts, from left to right, the one I got with Computiq magazine and also weathered, the Black Saber eyemask version, and the Illya + Berserker with blood.
Also, the BerserCar lights up it’s right eye when you push Illya down XD
YES! Ito Noizi’s new artbook which everyone and their uncle has, it just oozesï¼ˆï¼›Â´Ð”`ï¼‰ãƒã‚¡ãƒã‚¡ with all the Shana art and her other works, it also includes other characters such as Alulu/Elulu, Bridget, the Melonbooks mascot and much more. Like the previous artbook GU-RE-N, KA-E-N comes hardcovered and a beautifully illustrated jacket. My friend also managed to grab me a poster with it but he had to send it another time =/
The KA-E-N came with this photocopied sheet by Ito Noizi for animate, a chain store in Japan :3
Now onto the two doujins (he would of gotten more if I gave him more money beforehand…) that my friend managed to get from Comiket 72. I requested for iDOLM@STER and he delivered on the goods.
First up is NORTHANM@STER by Ojo-Noyokusitu.
It’s a Hokuto no Ken (Fist of the North Star) cross iDOLM@STER parody! I know i know… but trust me on this, it’s hilarious! I laughed for a good few minutes and now my stomach hurts (although it’s prolly rather to do with what I ate…). My Japanese language skills aren’t that great, so I couldn’t really understand the whole story =/
Second is i.D.M side A by U.R.C
Yes, it’s a H doujin, and a full colour one at that o_o
Story goes along the lines of the Producer having to interview candidates for a new idol group, he gets the first five girls details and goes off to “interview” them.
After “interviewing” he goes back to the manager and eagerly asks for the next batch… *drools*
There ya go, all my stuff I got today in the mail, time to stroke my e-penis…I mean open up my figure boxes ^^;
P.S. I’m gonna have small post images for non-photo shoot posts from now on so don’t think there’s something wrong with the small one :3

oooh you bought the berserker car! I almost bought that wonderfest nendo saber tho, but cancelled hehe
and… ewww on that northanmaster 1st picture..
Nice pickups on the Zero Saber and the limited Lucy. It’s a perfect figure for putting on a shelf just slightly above eye level. ^^
=x ouch for the wallet
Gotta love it when packages arrive at the door. Awesome haul there.
@ron~, the bersercar is a small one, not the huge one from Wonderfest ’06~ I keep giggling like a lil girl when I see the front cover of Northanm@ster XD
@super rats, Indeed it is, I have to re-arrange my shelves today to make room for the new figures lol
@pp, ;_; don’t remind me…
@Adun, hehe, yea, except mine doesn’t arrive at the door, I have to go to the postie to pick it up >.<
those are good… esp the fate/zero Saber + Ilya…
Haha, it surely had to feel like christmas^^
Oh and once again, I come across those Shana artbooks. What’s up with you guys XD
@samejima, indeed~ :3 I had to make room for all the new figures, and I had to iron down the Black Saber tapestry to get rid of the folds~
@phamolous, I told you! Everyone has one @_@;
14KAUD…My collection of books and model kits isn’t even 3% of that!! ARGH!!!!
Oh, as an aside, my own wishes are about to come true:
~My Gundam Mark II Pwns you all!~
Sell me that saber…..
Wow! Awesome doujin! The first one looks…. just too awesome…
