Azabu-juban

Well I had these pictures of Azabu Juban from my trip and I figured why not upload them.
When I first watched the SM anime, there were a lot of signs of Azabu Juban but it was mostly translated as "Park number 10" or " High School number 10" so I thought it was just some random name they had given to those places. Then I came across the name on a map and I immediatetly said to myself "I HAVE TO GO". If I had known about THIS TOUR some Sailor Moon fans took last year I sooooooo would have gone, but I had no idea, but then again, I visited most places they did on my own... anyways, here is my picture of Azabu juban with some anime scenes, but there is a link at the bottom of the post where you can find EVEN MORE pictures and comparisons anime/manga vs. real life.

YEYNESS...

Yeyness! SM Coldcast get!

Hey Moonies!

Well, I'm back home from my trip in Japan. I was away for a whole month and was lucky enough to visit most places I wanted to go to. Twas awesome!! Another one of my goals was to get Sailor Moon merchandise, but as I mentioned on another post, there is not much to be found. At least not that easily.

I went to at least three Mandarakes, and about 15 anime shops in Akihabara, but I couldn't get the huge SM figure I wanted. So sad about that, but just as I was about to board the train home, I decided to look into a shop close to the station and VOILÁ!! I found one of the cold cast figures I was searching for! SO lucky!!! IT was so funny trying to figure out how to communicate with the store clerk! I wanted to make sure it was indeed a cold-cast figure and not a Garage Kit, but my Japanese was so bad we couldn't understand each other, so we resorted to hand signs. I was all *paint paint paint* gesture, and he was saying YES. But I was... "yes is she pre-painted? or yes does she need to be painted?". OMG What an adventure. When we figured it out it was all good. :D WOOHOO!!!! And BTW it wasn't as expensive as the little SM-myu gashapon I saw before, OMG oO!

Cold Cast Prepainted Porcelain Figure.



 Gourgeous!

I know there are tons of images of this figure all around the web, but this one is mine, so it's photoworthy xD!

Telecard

Will someone PLEASE buy me this?!?!?
I haven`t been able to get my greedy hands on the INFINITY Artbook, but I haven't given up yet, someday I will. As all SM fans know, it is a rare book published by Naoko Takeuchi herself, but I did't realize there was actually any merchandise from that book.




I found this picture on Yahoo! Auctions Japan.

HEhehehehehee... today is Neptune day. I'm still drawing those quick, horrible, color penciled sketches, I know I could do better but I seriously have fun finishing them really fast xD.

Mercury.

I have decided that if I want comments and visits, I should update more often, even if it's just to upload the ocasional fanart I draw, so today I'll upload a drawing. Keep in mind that most of the drawings I upload in this blog are ONLY in this blog and not on Deviantart where I normally upload my "art", even though the watermark on the images is my DevArt page. I just watermark it like that cause.... dunno, I want to. xD

Today it's Sailor Mercury day for me HAHAHAHHAHA!! I drew Uranus last time and I kinda enjoyed the technique so I gave it another try. I finished it in just like 40 mins, so it's not that pretty, but I hope you enjoy it anyways.

:D

Damn!

Ok, I finally found a figure that I don't have and that I DO want. HOWEVER it is ridiculously expensive!!!!!!!!!!! AAAAAAAARRRRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!! TT_____________TT



26 000 Yen?!?!?!?!! Like 250 dlls!!!!!! Just for a Gashapon?!?!?!? I mean.. yes, it is truly a unique gashapon because it was only sold during the presentation of the 10th Anniversary of Sailor Moon Musical, and it was very limited and whatnot. But then again, it's just a regular gashapon!!!!!! Should I buy it???!?!?!?! I'm not rich!!! All I wanted was that huge Sailor Moon figure and now it seems that I should settle for this thingie... >________________< AARRRGGHH!!!!!! WHAT SHOULD I DOOOOOO?!?!?!??!

UPDATE: Did not buy. Still want.

Imposible

I have been to no less than 20 figure stores and have found no trace of any Sailor Moon figures, or at least not the ones I'm looking for. I did find the Kaiyodo figure I talked about last post but they were sold out and the one they had was only display.



I'm saying: "I found it but it`s not for sale"

I've also been to a bunch of USED anime stuff including A HUGE Book Off Store about an hour away form Tokyo and had no luck. Oh well, I guess I'm not destined to have it.

Anyways, I'll keep looking. Ohh and I drew a Sailor Uranus running... I never draw her, and I hardly use colored pencils anymore, but I really wanted to do it. I think it came out kind of ok. x3
