February 2015 Haul (Start)February 2015 Haul (Start)

jeanyoungleejeanyoungleeVor 4 JahrenLoot
Greetings all, and thank you stopping by my blog. I was debating whether I should write this or not since apart from artbooks, collecting anime-related goods (especially figure collecting) is a fairly new hobby for me. This post is perhaps overdue, but I thought I would share anyways.

Shopping Orders
My encounter with the Monogatari Series is fairly recent. I had little idea of what I would be venturing into when I checked the first episode. Thankfully, I was not in the least disappointed. The series proved to be refreshing, unique, entertaining (and may I say artistically stimulating?). Despite the brevity of my familiarity with it, I have become completely absorbed in this work – as you will see below…

Artbooks have always occupied a special place in my library (now collection) since they attest to the dedication, creativity, and thoughtfulness put into the works I enjoy. Shaft’s adaptation of the Monogatari Series is no exception. Needless to say, these two Bakemonogatari Key Animation Note artbooks made their way into my collection. I was fortunate to secure a copy of Part II on Amazon JP before it sold out. The following day, the set jumped up by 5000 yen in price! :S

Proxy Order: Treasure Japan
For my first proxy order, I chose Treasure Japan based on recommendations for this service. Treasure Japan was courteous, though response times and service could be somewhat slow (understandable due to the nature of their business). The box was carefully and neatly prepared, and the items safely arrived at my doorstep. Overall, my experience with them was generally positive.

I never intended to get into figure collecting as much as I had with artbooks, but these Monogatari Series Chibi Kyun Chara figurines were too endearing to resist…

Karen Araragi, Kyun Chara (Nekomonogatari Kuro)

(Another Chibi Kyun Chara of Nadeko came from a separate source in a lonely box. At least they are all together now.)

Also, here is a Hasegawa 1/72 AV-8B Harrier II Plus Hibiki Ganaha model from The IDOLM@STER:

And last but certainly not least...Despite my unfamiliarity with Black Rock Shooter, I admire the sleek design and the craftsmanship of Good Smile Company's Strength. (It also helps that I found her, like new, at a reasonable price of 6750 yen).

That is all for February, but there is more to come this month in March! Hopefully, I may consider writing another post.

Holy crap, those art books are huge and kind of a strange size. xD Look awesome, though! I haven't seen past the 2nd Monogatari series but I probably should get around to watching the rest someday. There is more than 2, right? I've heard of Kizumonogatari and pretty sure there's another...

Nice BRS figure! I'm also not very familiar with the source material but the designs are so well done! Recently purchased a Dead Master anime ver scale & have a bunch of the nendoroids~

Yes, please do continue the series! Personally, I enjoyed Monogatari Series Second Season the most (Nekomonogatari Shiro & Koimonogatari are my favorites so far).

There seem to be many ways to watch the anime (I first watched it in chronological order). This link clarified many things and helped guide me to that decision. I hope it can help you, too: dorrykun.wordpr....

pixiebear (Vor 4 Jahren) #2807076From what I've seen on Mandarake, the BRS girls are all still really pricey brand-new (I've always seen Strength go for 12k unopened).
Lovely haul! Those artbooks look really appealing! I stopped after Bakemono because there are now so many new stories that I'm not sure if I have to watch them in order. (I do love short-haired Black Hanekawa though! She'll be the only reason I continue the series ^w^).

Moro (Vor 4 Jahren) #2806831The kyun-chara figures are really cute, especially the medusa. Nice price for Strength, is that around her standard price these days? I haven't kept track of the aftermarket fluctuations for most BRS figures.

Hello, arianehk, and thank you for the comment.

I believe they are similar in size. The Hanekawa and Karen Kyun Charas are about 3.9 inches tall.

arianehk (Vor 4 Jahren) #2806656Awesome loot! Are the big hanekawa and Karen nendo size?
