Figma Saber Alter review & Kohiru photo-Shoot

Obtained Figma Saber Alter at my local Anime Stop today. Also went to my local Kiko Sushi Bar to eat out as I also planned out a figure photoshoot there in advance. Chopstick Kohiru joined me in some amusing photo-shootings as she attracted lots of attention. I hope you guys/gals don’t mind if I merge the review and Kohiru’s articles into one. Didn’t want to spam my own blog.

Sidenote: I’m not rich; it only appears as if I am. If I was rich I’d be constantly traveling the world :P.

Shinki Benio’s Outdoor Adventure

To give Benio’s her deserved respect here is an article for her ^^.
After acquiring Benios, she wanted to explore the vast and foreign area around her. With Benio being my first ever Shinki I thought I’d also assist with showing off how she articulates and the like in an outdoor setting. Feel free to consider this as a part of a review if you want.

Enjoy the photo-shoot!

Montreal’s Otakuthon – Palais des congres de Montreal

I went to Montreal’s Otakuthon which is hosted in Canada, Montreal - Palais des congres de Montreal. The event runs from the 13th till the 15th of August. I went on Saturday, August the 14th, 2010 to experience my first Anime convention and I believe it was well worth the trip taken.

Busou Shinki – Benio – Type Samurai

Busou Shinki – Benio. I acquired her from my local AnimeStop for $38 CAD ($44 with taxes). Poor Benio was stuck on the store shelves for many moons/months without an owner to pick her up. I saw her many times during the winter when I still wasn’t interested in them. I’ve finally picked her up during the same year, and before Shinki Renge.
