Loot: Strength (Black Rock Shooter) Figma and Hirasawa Yui (K-ON!) prize figure!

Goodevening everyone!
Today I will talk about a package I received a month ago. Two figures arrived and they are totally the opposite of eachother. One is a badass, insane girl and the other is the most adorable, childish girl you’ll have ever seen (if you have seen the anime of course, the figure made her look somewhat mature). Here’s a picture of the box the girls had arrived in.

Music: BANKS live concert at Paradiso Amsterdam

Hello everyone! Today I’ll post about a total new subject: music. Less than a month ago I visited BANKS’ concert in Amsterdam. She’s a (female, people tend to think she’s a male because of her name I guess) singer from Los Angeles. One day I stumbled upon her Soundcloud and I fell in love with her songs. I couldn’t wait for her new songs, all her songs were on replay for a month or 2 maybe even 3. At some point I a kind of forgot about her, because I found new music to listen to. Even when her album Goddess dropped, I wasn’t as excited for her music anymore as before. I didn’t even listen to the album in the end. But my friend told me that she was doing a tour and she would visit Amsterdam as well. At that point I got totally excited again, but I still hadn’t listened to her new album. On november the 15th (the day of the concert) I was on the bus on my way to the concert and I gave her album a try. There were songs I already knew, so I skipped those for the new ones. A few songs were very nice, but I still wasn’t convinced.

After the concert..

Duuuuuude, first of all she was just so amazing! Second, I’m not doubting her album anymore. I’m loving almost every song now and I still listen to her album. BANKS started the concert with hesitation and you could see that she was nervous. But when she started to feel more comfortable on stage she sang live perfectly.

Loot: FuRyu Undine special figure Asuna!

Hello guys!
Today I will show you FuRyu’s Undine Asuna! She was just as difficult to get as FuRyu GGO Kirito, everytime I saw her popping up on Mandarake I was too late. I was already checking Ebay, but the prices were higher than Mandarake. And this time I finally had her. She was only 1,500 jpy and I will spoil already: it’s definitely worth the money.

Asuna
First we’ll take a look at the box. It’s as blue as Asuna’s hair from Alfheim Online. It’s a really cute and majestic box. It feels like we’re looking into a window that will take us into Alfheim Online. The box was bigger than I had expected as well.

Loot: FuRyu GGO special figure Sinon!

Hello everyone! Today we’ll be looking at FuRyu GGO special figure Sinon! She’s my second favorite female character from Sword Art Online (Asuna was there first, so yeah). I totally fell in love with her. FYI, I also pre-ordered Sinon’s nendoroid and figma, I just can’t get enough of her! I was able to order her from Mandarake for only 1500 jpy. She was sold out everytime I tried to order her and Ebay was absolutely a no-go (they all listed her for around $60). Finally when I was able to put her in my cart and had to wait for the in-voice, I actually hoped that she would get canceled. Because I checked MFC and her face is a bit off, she looked really bored. But she wasn’t canceled, so I got her anyway!

Sinon
Let’s have a look at her box. She came in the same box as FuRyu GGO Kirito did, the only difference is: her box is blue, Kirito his box is black. Again, I love the minimalistisc, futuristic style of this box.

We’ll start of with 2 thick sweaters.

Loot: Kirito GGO FuRyu figure

Hello everyone! Tonight I will review Kirito! Kirito is from the famous Sword Art Online series, I did not get the dual sword wielding Kirito. Instead I got the special figure Kirito GGO FuRyu figure. I’ve had been looking for him for a few weeks. He popped up a several times on Mandarake, but everytime I tried to buy him, he was sold out. So, I went with the last resort: Ebay. He was slightly more pricey on Ebay than on Mandarake, but the shipping was free so it compensated. Here’s a link to the Ebay seller, he has a quite a lot nice figures for sale as well (and also a lot, seriously a lot doujinshi). Kirito Now onto the review. Kirito!!!
