Kamen Rider The NEXT – SGD5.50
The DVDs are all officially licensed releases.
Having finished watching Ghost in the Shell (the first movie, Innocence, SAC, SAC 2nd GIG, Solid State Society), I’ve to say that it’s a pretty good series. The SAC series was way better than the 2 movies though, in my opinion.
I’m currently watching Usagi Drop and A-Channel. Usagi Drop’s quite good. No comments on A-Channel though… Gonna watch Steins;gate, Ika Musume and Working!! after that. Probably Ben-To, Mirai Nikki and Guilty Crown too, after they’ve finished the whole series.
Just returned from my trip to Tokyo. It was a very enjoyable vacation, especially since the weather over there was way better than Singapore’s perpetual heat and humidity.
Although this isn’t my first trip to Japan (probably my fourth; I’ve kinda lost count), it’s the very first time I went there without joining a tour group. This gave me the freedom to plan my itinerary and schedule, instead of doing the same old stuff with the tour group. Let’s face it, tour groups aren’t tailored for geeks/otakus/collectors.
I’ve been rather busy during the past few weeks, thanks to the somewhat sudden General Elections. Fret not, updates will resume once I return from my Hong Kong trip . I currently have 2 reviews/galleries planned.
My mini-haul from Takashimaya today. Been wanting these two for quite some time, along with War Machine.
There were tons of Figuarts for sale there, ranging from old releases like Kuuga, Kabuto and Punch Hopper, to newer releases like Faiz, TF #1 and TF #2. Prices weren’t too fantastic, though it’s starting to near a certain CSC shop’s “good” prices. Also, ran into Marzz.
