Sorry for taking so long to do another update! Life has been quite hectic lately with typical life obligations, but what can I say? I love boring things like fixing up things around my home, and then settling into a nice TV coma at night. Ever since I finished playing Hakuoki, my boyfriend and I have been obsessively watching GinTama for our anime series these past few months. So Gintama is where all my spare time has been going lately, blame Gintoki for capturing my heart and funny bone! We’ve also recently discovered and become addicted to the TV Series called Grimm, the series definitely has a feel of being from someone who was involved with creating Buffy the Vampire Slayer (my favorite TV Show in junior high). I may have to do a review of the Gintama anime soon, it’s a series I now consider to be one of the best shonen anime series around. Gintoki is the first hero I’ve seen that comes close to rivaling Luffy (One Piece) as my favorite. I may have to re-do my favorite Shonen characters list. After we (sadly) catch up in GinTama we’ll be moving on to Beezlebub next, not sure what’ll be after that. Otherwise the only other series on the anime front that I am continuing to keep up with are Fairy Tail, One Piece, and Sket Dance.

At long last! My #1 desired One Piece figure! I love this figure of Luffy, it has an awesome presence. The moment I saw this open for pre-order it was immediately dropped in my cart, there was no way I was skipping him. He’ll soon be standing proudly in front of his entire Strong Edition crew! My next haul post will contain a few waves of releases of the crew. I haven’t gotten around to taking those photos because my entire figure/manga room is in disarray with my recent figure sales. Also, for some reason I don’t think I did the lighting too well on the Luffy shoot, oh well, I’ll try and do better next time.
Zoro is an awesome character, definitely one of my all time favorites. I’m buying BOTH Strong Versions of him being released, I don’t care that he’s the only one I’ll have doubles of from this set! The more Zoro the better! Of the two Zoro figures being released I think I’ll end up liking Version 2 the best. Why Version 2? Simply because it’s Zoro in a tuxedo! When I first started collecting figures the Skypia Megahouse Zoro was one of my most wanted figures, I was ecstatic when they had an improved re-release. Although of the One Piece Strong set I’d say Zoro Ver. 2 and Ver. 1 place #2 and #3 on my MUST HAVE list for this set. My #1 desired figure is the Luffy that I’ll be reviewing next time!
SEBASTIAN! Both in nendoroid and delicious figure form! Also CLOUD! Oh what a manly haul this is! Henrietta is a delightful find, she cost $55 with shipping, I pretty much paid the original retail price for her (definitely no more than a few dollars over). I enjoy Gunslinger Girl, but I’m not a frantic fan of the series. But something about this Henrietta figure has a beautiful sadness to it that made me put it on my wishlist. I get the same feeling off this one that I get from my Kotobukiya Chise.
Oh yes, this Saber is a must have for me! I’m so glad I skipped her Gift version. I much prefer how GSC portrayed her here, although I’m incredibly biased because she will go SO WELL next to my Distant Avalon Saber! Now nothing against the Gift Saber, that Saber has her beautiful merits as well. But overall this Saber is my preference. If GSC decides to make a trio and create a complimentary Dark Saber I will give them my full support (and money). Although they might be too busy working on their 4th, 5th, and 6th Black Rock Shooter (BRS) figures It would probably be smart of them if they would put out another Rider figure instead of so many of BRS. Although I admit, the collectors out there that gather every BRS, their shelf will probably look awesome having them all side by side.
