I’ve decided it might be good to start doing some monthly, perhaps bi-monthly (depending on how much I get) loot posts. Seemed like fun and I always enjoy seeing other people’s, so I figured I’d give it a go. Unfortunately, I couldn’t use the camera I usually use for certain reasons beyond my control, so today you get some crappy IPhone pictures. YAY! Apologies for quality, but better than nothing, right? ...Right? Enjoy…or at least try to.

First off we have Bakemonogatari Key animation Vol 1. This is a collection of key animation art books that covers the first 3 arcs from Bakemonogatari, each arc divided into a book. I decided to take the plunge and buy it after finding one on Mandarake for 6,000 Yen. There are a lot of pages here, over 1100 in total and according to MFC, weighs a total of 2.5kg, so I was somewhat surprised that shipping was only about 3,500 yen for DHL. If you’re a fan of art books, the Monogatari series, and can find them for a reasonable price, I’d consider these books must haves.

Next we have one of my favorite Nendoroids in my collection, Itoshiki Nozomu from Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei. I’ve recently become infatuated with the Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei Series and this Nendoroid was a no brainer purchase for me. How could I not buy it? I mean, IT COMES WITH A NOOSE! No way I was going to pass that up. I do wish there were more scale figures from the series though. “Zetsuboushita! The fact that this series lacks merchandise has left me in despair!” I bought this figure from Amazon for a mere $30 + $4 SAL (I think it was SAL) shipping. A deal which did certainly did not leave me in despair.

I’m certainly a big fan of Kana Hanazawa’s voice acting, however, something that has surprised me is how much I enjoy her music as I find it very pleasant and relaxing to listen to. She’s released 2 albums thus far, “Claire” and “25” respectively. I figured since I pre-ordered her “25” concert Blu-Ray, due out next month, I should get “Claire” as well. I managed to find a first release edition on eBay, so it came with some nice packaging extras, including a poster and a 48-page booklet.

After over half a year of stress, anxiety, anger and frustration, I, along with a fair few other people (thankfully), have finally received our BRAVE-ACT Sentinel Levi figures. I’ve gone on long enough about the TGLS fiasco elsewhere so I won’t bother going over that again, but it does feel good finally having him in my collection and I’ve taken quite a liking to this figure. You’ll notice in the picture his 3DMG isn’t fully assembled, that’s because it’s a bitch to put on (like all AoT figures) and I like the look better without it.

Last, but certainly not least, is FREEing’s Senbonzakura Miku. I adore the song and the design of this Miku so there was no question I was going to get her, however, there was one big question over this figure: the manufacturer. Personally, I had heard a lot of very hit and miss stories about FREEing’s figures, so I was concerned about the quality. Just look at it! This is a figure that would be very easy to screw up, but thankfully, I think they did her justice and overall I’m easily satisfied by the quality of this figure.

So that’s all for this month. Unfortunately, Union’s Akane Tsunemori is still on her way to me so she didn’t make the cut for this month’s loot post, but she should make an appearance next month, which is set to be a relatively big one. Please look forward to the next one and thank you all for reading.
