A simple and unplanned post for today.
After reading several blogs (which includes Danny Choo's page, perhaps the most XD), I have embraced my figure-otaku side.
Truth be told, Figures did not entice me as much before but, then I did not know much about anime or manga at the time.
Now that I am more aware of certain matters, I am willing to spend money on figurines as their value means a lot to me.
The time and effort needed to create a figurine is not realised by many. Figurines and Plamo are shunned as simple 'kids toys'.
There is a certain charm and value that a figurine and gunpla has that a toy will never attain.
For those interested, I have preordered these two figurines:
~ Fate/Stay Night: Rin Figma (Max Factory)
~ Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu: Nagato Yuki Guitar-Wizard version (Max Factory)
I am counting the days before the arrival... it is oh-so-painful to wait ;_;
Deviating from the above content slightly, last night I took time out to enjoy an interesting animated film. The title was "Heavy Metal". As a Metal fan, I thoroughly enjoyed the addition of names such as Black Sabbath, Devo, Riggs...
The animation was brilliant, a gem for it's time. Featuring the first animated scenes of perspective flying, incorporating multimation, challenging the norms, metal music as the score, staying true to the original illustrators’ works...
Truly, a great movie.
I do recommend this title to anyone who can appreciate the above.
That ends this post. I do hope that this can be informative and enjoyable to those reading, I try to have variety in my posts.
Though, even If I am the only one reading this, I do enjoy the experience of blogging and I shall continue as long as I am inspired.
Till we next meet,
