Rain, rain, SUN! Shana!

Hello again, time to dust this off again and dry up any wet spots after the constant downpour in my area. I decided to get a bike again and see what I could snap images of this time around.

Not much happened except for me obtaining two wall scrolls, playing games, and sitting out the rain a few times. Still have yet to do a photoshoot for my two new figmas that I obtained a few weeks back. The constant rain killed my interest in anything figure related.

Below image is of the Ottawa River from the bike path inbetween Britannia Beach and Andrew Haydon park. For a river it looks more like a lake the more I seem to eye it.

Ottawa Goes for Sushi?

On my way to Best buy me and someone else noticed a Sushi shop where another restaurant used to be. How many of you within Ottawa go for sushi, or similar? I remember making regular visits to Chinese restaurants and buffets. The first Japanese Sushi I officially noticed (since I wasn’t a Japanese influenced person in the past) within the city was the one within the downtown Ottawa region. A similar one to that is closer to my neighborhood and adds another 5-10 minutes to my 20 minute bike ride to the Anime shop.

Guess the Sushi.

Figma Haruhi – Summer version

Crap, I’m slacking. Well, I got another Figma and this time its the Summer Haruhi version. From the looks of it I shall be taking this Haruhi around a lot. Being a summer type Figma, I also attempted to try out a new way of photo shooting my figures for a “review” (being more of an overview then a review – Saber Lily being the review).

(Link – MySite)

And yes, $44 Canadian dollars…..I’m staring at one of my Figma boxes that says $39.99 CAD. Recession, it sucks either way; real or fake. Also forgot to mention I acquired my first Fate/Stay Night manga, woo! Now I just got to get around to reading it. If you haven’t guessed yet Fate/Stay night is one of my favorite Anime series and what got me into being an Anime view/watcher/otaku (whatever you want to call it).

Figma Ryomou Shimei – First glance

Anybody called for a maid? Went to check out my anime store recently and they didn’t have much, just her and Shana. Ah well, at least I put myself in line for Figma Signum. I didn’t have her and didn’t want to leave the shop empty hande so I grabbed her, paid for her and biked back home. I got her last week on wednesday, but I kind of waited for the “right moment” to review her. Meh, I should of just took pictures of her like I normally would.

I don’t recall ever seeing Ryomou in a maid outfit. Its not like its a bad thing, right? The below images were taken with my Sony W170 Camera, excuse the quality. I should of taken the pictures during the nice warm weather when I had the proper lighting……..

Ottawa – Spring Time#4 w/figma Rin (Vocaloid)

Another great day meaning another great time to take pictures of the local wildlife, as with figmas. This time I decided to bring Figma Rin to see what kind of images I could end up taking by bringing her along.

Well, I missed out on the Ottawa Tulip festival since I forgot when it was going to take place with me currently cursing that I have missed it. So much for looking at the Japanese tent this year :(. Ah well, there is always next year and more events to go to, right?

Before I go on about it, I thought I’d point out some kick ass Pockies that I found interesting again. The Almond type biscuit sticks that I found yesterday in the local Asian store on the other side of Ottawa. Also a teaser image to the next Figma I got that I will eventually do a photoshoot of, Figma #024 if your curious.

A review of the next Figma will come soon 🙂

Another beautiful day means another set of great images from the vast open great white green northern nation of Canada. Each week passes meaning a better and greener scenery around the city as well as the nation, woo! This time I brought Haruhi around for the bike ride but wasn’t too sure were to take images so excuse the lack of Figma images.

Early Spring photoshoot

Hyello again, enjoying the spring like weather? Oh, you don’t get winter? For those of us that do have to experience 4 seasons instead of two; Spring, summer, fall, winter. Spring is nice since you see things become light green, cool light brown, Cherry Blossom pink, Apple tree bright red and etc. Now I’m just being a smart-ass and stating the obvious so we shall move on.

I haven’t seen any greens yet, but I have noticed the bike path becoming nice and clear for distant biking. I’ve noticed tons of birds coming back and a few bugs popping about (shudders at the thought of centipedes running through his room).

While trying to take pictures of a bird, it started flying at the last moment when the camera was focusing and getting ready for the high quality image part. It mocked me and my camera!

Spring walk – Figma Shana

Nice day for a walk I must say, though a bit windy, it was warm with spring coming around. I should remind you to watch your step as it can get pretty icy around here. It always ends up getting swampy like and turns to ice (not everywhere of course). Oh and if your lurking, Shana makes a quick appearance. My camera ended up running out of juice so I had to head back.

So without further ado, here are some pictures from Canada, Ottawa with a nice lovely sky.

Figma Shana get

Well I did say I got Figma Shana in my previous article. I also tried to do a group shot with all my Figma’s but it proved to be troublesome. Just one tiny little bump on the table and they topple like diminos. I also found a bit of irony while I took (blurry) pictures of them. I’ll explain (what I call) irony further on.

I think I need to do another attempt at a Figma group shot, but here it is:

Well moving on with the lame excuses, I got Rin Kagamine on my last trip to my local anime store (Anime Stop), acquiring her her on the 17th of January, 2009.


Miku Announces: ..Welcoming a new member to the SOS Music Brigade is Rin Kagamine!

Figma Lily Saber Box – recheck

Thanks to a user named Dani who commented in this blog post, I took pictures of the part I forgot. I also took the time to take images that were blurry and make them slightly better.

Here are the images:

The Bottom flaps with Dark Saber and another character I never seen. I haven’t played the PS2/PC game of it. New Figmas? :p

(Link – MySite)

And then the image I decided to take a re-shot of just in case theres some important messages on there…..doubt there are but who knows.

(Link – MySite)

And the image that was blurry before in my previous blog post, with Figma Saber and Rin that are already out.

(Link – MySite)

There you go :). Here I thought I checked every corner and I left a stone unturned. So there’ll be 3 Sabers? I don’t know who that other person is. Lastly I want a Figma Horo (Spice and Wolf) and Tenko Kugen (Wagaya no Oinari-sama). That’ll be the day…….

Happy Holiday! – Figma Lily Saber and Figma Miku Hatsune

Figma Saber Lily get – Part 1

Well I finally got this “gift” for Christmas and I must say thats one hell of a small box for something so god damn expensive. I’ve waited since summer and now that I finally got her I felt like doing it in a more holiday style (though my  patience kicked in) and open up the box when christmas is actually around. But ya, impatience kicked in and I took out the doing a photoshoot of it but I haven’t taken it out of its original box yet. I’ll leave the playing and posing to the actual christmas since thats part 2.

Well heres a photoshoot for part 1 as a teaser.

Snow storm?

Woke up today and was greeted by a nice pile of white snow blanketing everything. It was so white that I was caught off guard, and because of the fog created by the snow. I rushed to take a pictures every few moments and here (December snows are the best) and got one when two trucks and a back end loader were shoveling a parkinglot.

Like with any other Canadian snow fall, you have to keep shoveling 20 times a day to keep your driveway clean and it severly pisses people off. The sidewalk plows seemed to cleaned this out earlier, but it was all in vain.

Figma Kanu Unchou get

Went to the anime store today and went to see if they had a decent (new) selection of Figmas. I searched and examined any figures that caught my attention and none really did. I made sure I didn’t miss anything so I looked behind a few figures also and acquired Figma Kanu and one of those Good Smile trading figures. I got Rin in one of her running with a dagger pose and is a pain to put together.

(Click the links under images, opens in a new window/tab)

Well I decided to show my other Figma partners my other Figma to the club. Haruhi was annoyed at being one of those “innocent” types while Konata makes a eroge game comment. Kanu couldn’t wait out of the box….Oh and ya she is back to her normal self again after that “chilling” walk.
