I first took notice of this cutie yesterday on Kumo’s blog, my decision to order her was immediate. I love a good mystery/detective series, and this character has an adorable detective look. I absolutely want her on my shelf, perhaps I’ll put her next to my Revoltech Professor Layton? It’s rare that I buy a nendoroid without having played the video game/seen the anime they belong to, but Holmes here is one of the exceptions. She seems to be from a video game called Tantei Opera Milky Holmes, and it recently had an anime. Even though I’m ordering this figure I doubt I’ll watch the anime, usually I like my mysteries to be about murder more-so than stolen kittens. For a random update I started playing Persona 4…  

There are aspects of Persona 4 that I think are so much better than 3, but at the same time there were aspects of 3’s system I liked better. Although I really like the fact that the plot is a small town murder mystery story, we’ll see by the end which game I prefer. One thing I’ll say as a negative is that I dislike hearing Teddie’s voice during battle, I hope the battle cheerleader character changes to someone else as I get new characters. I can turn off his voice, but I sacrifice everyone’s voices in the scenes right before battle too. I also told myself that I would allow my characters to act freely and not waste time commanding them all…but it’s so frustrating when they don’t select the target I want them to. For example when coming across a foe that summons other creatures, they seem to keep trying to attack the summons rather than the source of the summons first. I think I’m too controlling to allow them to act freely. I’m still playing Dragon Quest V but I’m playing that in the car, if I’m planted on the couch and have TV access it’s all about Persona 4 lately. Oh also I named my Main Character in Persona 4 Kyo Tohsaka, I just combined the names of Kyo Sohma (Fruits Basket) and Rin Tohsaka (Fate: Stay/Night). I enjoy getting to select my name in a game, in Persona 3 I named my main character Touya Kinomoto.

Also all of my figures/manga are organized. This is the first time in a LONG time that my hobby room looks so well kept. I’ll have to take pictures soon and update the room a post before it becomes a chaotic cluttered room again. Although I have one more small haul post first :)
