Man, I sure buy too much…

I been neglecting to do loot post since the second half of April for some reason and another. With that said I thought I would lump everything into one post.

I never did post when I got these. In part was because I was so happy to finally get my hands on Yui figma after the fiasco with the sudden announcement for her release back in January. When I receive the package I opened ip up as soon as I could. Likewise for Alter’s Yui since they came together.

Ritsu and Mugi were a pleasant surprise, I had both reserve for their second shipment. However, when the first shipment was released both Mugi and Ritsu were readily available so I cancelled my reservation and got them.

Like most people I get my anime through torrents. However, when the chance arises I try to buy the shows that I like when I have the means.

When Funimation released their S.A.V.E. line I wanted to see how it was. You can’t get any better for a complete show for KyoAni’s Air I payed less than $20. As someone who used to buy 4 episode DVDs for $25 this is almost god sent.

As for Kannagi it was a little more expensive, although I was surprised it included the OVAs as well. I do wish it wasn’t two cases for two single DVDs waste of shelf space.

Anime and figures are nice and all but gaming is were my true loyalties lie.

I got SSF4 as a graduation gift, never had interest in SF4 but with the addition of the SF3 characters and Juri the update got my interest.

I own an Xbox 360 but it rarely gets use, however I do like the Mass Effect series and it is a 360 exclusive. When my friend picked up and me having come out of replaying the first I was in the mood for the second game in series.

There was a sale on Wii games where it was buy one get the second half off. I was planning on picking up Sin and Punishment Star Successor regardless when it released but took advantage of the sale to pick Trauma Team as well.

Trauma Team is a more of the same with some more variety if you played the Trauma Center series on the Wii and DS.

Sin and Punishment though, is currently my number one Wii game for this year. It is a Treasure game, it has perfect controls, runs at 60 fps, has amazing over the top action and bosses and in true Treasure tradition is pretty hard.

I will bold this and type it in caps to get your attention, BUY SIN and PUNISHMENT STAR SUCCESSOR.

I will mention though Treasure games are not for everyone; however, if you use the labels “hardcore and casual” Sin and Punishment is more hardcore than any Call of Duty or Halo or any other FPS in my book.

F-Zero GX, always liked them since the SNES original never bought one until I found this complete copy.

On the handheld side it’s a little more light. Now that I write this I notice I didn’t include the Megaman Zero Collection in the picture. I will make sure to include on my next loot.

I got Peace Walker since it’s the first Kojima MGS on the PSP. I played both the Japanese and American demos, although it plays differently than the previous MGS’s it got my attention right away.

Bangai-O is a port of a Treasure Dreamcast game, you pilot a robot and shoot lots of missiles in Macross Missile Massacre fashion. Solid action on the DS and as Treasure fanboy plus I found it cheap at only $7 made me get it.

I finally got Portrait of Ruin to complete the Metroidvania trilogy on the DS. Always passed on it since the anime art style on both Dawn of Sorrow and this game turned me off, I prefer the art style of Aria of Sorrow or Order of Ecclesia. Found it for $15 so I picked it up.

On the paper media side I got the new Haruhi novel. Somewhat disappointed that the Boredom of Haruhi Suzumiya contains stuff I already watched animated. Namely the baseball game, the time traveling episode, the cricket and the island murder.

One thing I look forward to the translated Haruhi novels is reading new material I haven’t seen on the shows before.

I picked up the second Spicy Wolf novel and since RightStuf still had the sleeves with original cover the first order that as well.

Picked up volume 26 of Negima.

Also Scott Pilgrim volume 1, the new upcoming game got my interest in this series as well as the upcoming movie. After reading the premise I new I had to get the original graphic novels.

I mean, Scott having to fight the seven evil ex-boyfriends of the new girl in town to get her heart and be happy is one the most unique premises I have ever seen.

Finally the book, Nintendo Magic: Winning the Video Game Wars. It chronicles the creation of the DS and Wii and how they came to dominate the Video Game market. I read an excerpt at Kotaku and decided I had to read the rest.

I blame fellow local comrade Motoko Yamamoto for this purchase. After the post of his/her Mio on figure.fm of her wearing a nice gym outfit.

I ended craving one for my Nanoha, when I came across one and secured some funds I bought it.

This turned out more like a rant than I expected. If you only look at the pictures that’s fine with me, until next time.

    That’s some nice loot you have. 😉

    I’m surprised how good the base looks on Alter’s Yui. I’ll consider getting the set if they happen to get re-released.

    That gym outfit sure looks nice on Nanoha. I better stop looking at all these Dollfie pics before it’s too late.

    • Miette-chan says:

      It sure is.

      I kinda wish the bases for the K-On! set were part of a set, as if to build a stage for them or something. Other than that I’m cool with them.

      Just give, eventually a character you really like will get turned into a DD.

      • Tommy says:

        I have the same wish for the Idolmaster set.

        They already did. It’s just too expensive to buy them aftermarket. Saber Alter and Asuka. I really like the Saber Alter DD, but she’s too expensive aftermarket.

        I might consider ordering if they happen to release a Miki Hoshii or Takane Shijou.

    Nice loots

    I know what you feel. There so much things that you want xD

  3. reinfinitum says:

    That’s lots of nice loots!

    Always wanted to get those haruhi novels but they don’t sell it here. orz
    Haven’t played MGS Peace Walker but it’s the next one to play since I just finished Hexyz Force.

    • Miette-chan says:

      That sucks about the novels, I been finding reading the original material a nice experience even if I already watched the animated counterpart countless times.

      Hexyz Froce huh, I kinda wanted to try that may be if I find it for cheap some day.

  4. Fabrice says:

    OMG -.- that is some loot here =)

    Nice you got Ritsu, Yui and Tsumugi, you dont have Mio?

    all that is left for me is Azusa XD

  5. AS says:

    Nice loot of the month lol. Wonder if there’s a club out there like that. I totally forgot about the trauma game for the Wii. It was something I wanted but since I got busy it was forgotten. Though that Sin and Punishment game looks interesting so I might get that as well ^^.

    • Miette-chan says:

      Same thing happened if there hadn’t been a buy one get the other 50% off would probably not have remembered Trauma Team.

      Yes, do get Sin and Punishment both the original on the N64 and the sequel are worth every penny.

    I think for Metal Gear Series on the PSP, Peace Walker is probably the 3rd of the 4th release for the PSP.

    There are quite a few MGS series release before PeaceWalker.

    Anyway, Great Loot!

  7. Optic says:

    OMG, u have a PS3, Xbox360, Wii, DS and PSP.
    Think that’s all of them unless you have a Gamecube as well. :3

    I recently sold my DS lite as I rarely play it anymore but after the 360S was revealed, I really am tempted to get one.

    There’s quite a backlogged of anime DVDs I wanna get. One of them is Claymore but I’ve been restraining myself due to the amount of games I’ve got recently over the months. This can be said for figures as well. 🙂

    • Miette-chan says:

      I did owned a Gamecube but game it away since it’s redundant with a Wii. If you are curious I also own a Dreamcast, Gameboy Micro, and a DS Lite. I keep saying gaming is where my loyalties lie.

      I have a slight interest in the new “slim” 360. If I ever have the need to replace mine I will probably by one.

      Claymore is awesome, one of the animes and mangas I liked quite a bit in recent memory. I been eying the blu rays for a while now.

      Restraint indeed.
