All hail Lunamaria Hawke!
I saw the first itasha in Akihabara, in front of the K-Books building, on Oct 11! http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.452734761437664.98637.167163943328082&type=1&l=6f3a3099b4
Yes, really. I kid you not.
Anyway the resemblance between the actual subject and metaphor is uncanny.
Just a bit of local Singaporean trivia:
To 'merlion' is slang for projectile vomiting especially in the context of having had too much (alcohol) to drink.
Glad you had a better experience this time - esp w the Sg MSM than the last time!
Come back again soon!
Oneecon is HAWT. Yuri oneecon is HAWTER.
Hope to see this storyline continued.
As Danny said, cartilage is any kind of soft bone.
For nankotsu, the most commonly used part is the caudal end of the sternum which is the lowest part of the keel (or carina) labelled as (6) in the following anatomy chart:
I love nankotsu too. As well as kawa (skin) and heart.
I believe that's called NIMBY.
Will pass on this and save the money for the glory that is Kawashima Ami.
Cinema gits needs to be fixed like the way they were in the Kara no Kyoukai pre-screen puppet shows. LOL
Nurse Witch Komugi-chan to the rescue?
Or will it be more like Venus Versus Virus?
Same reason. (And not Gundam pla-mo :P)
The Eleventh Commandment: Thou shall not get caught. ;-)
JPY 7-8,000 isn't that steep (though it has been going up) especially when compared to the insane prizes that are charged for Limited Edition R2s. (Still feeling the pain of Evangelion 1.01 LE)
Yeah, we needed MOAR details of beer.
The big question is... will her pantsu be shima shima?
The pose, detailing, sculpt in general are great but I agree that it gave me the feeling of 'not Yoko at all' - definitely prefer the anime version and will be giving this one a miss.
Like the Haruhi gekisou set, bands of four (with instruments) are such an evil marketing ploy to GET THE WHOLE SETTO.
Aoi hana FTW.
Manga and doujin can weigh a ton. Sending stuff back home via packages will cost a little more on top of the purchases but it gives you added float and more luggage space for figures.
I agree completely!!
I was just reminded of that screen from Robocop where the other executives fled the toilet after the evil EVP entered. One of them pee-ed on his own pants in his haste to get away. How will one escape if one is kneeling?? Haha!
Speaking of hospitals, what is quite disturbing are reports of Japanese hospitals turning away people with fevers: http://mdn.mainichi.jp/mdnnews/national/news/20090505p2a00m0na003000c.html?inb=rs
I understand hospitals need to take precautions but if they don't help sick people, who are patients going to turn to?
I'm not into dollfies in general but agree that Saber always looks good. Her alter version is simply exquisite and quite haunting in a good sort of way.
I fully second Chibichibiusa's comment on RightStuf.com - they licensed titles (e.g. MariMite under Nozomi Entertainment) that I enjoy very much and I find their box sets (esp when on sale) to be very good value for money.
Not to be a wet blanket or anything but I vaguely remember reading in Anthony Bourdian's Kitchen Confidential something to the effect that if you have money to lose, the thing to do is to open a restaurant. Lots of upfront costs (venue, COD terms for supplies, labour, HSE compliance etc.) which means the operation has to generate cash from the get go. But I'm sure you'll figure it all out, execute beautifully and look forward to visiting your restaurant during my next Japan trip! :D
