Hiii~ 8D/

First of all, this is my first attempt at a loot post, so please pardon me xD And also, I'm a bit of a (very) late bloomer with collecting, and I basically just nab things on instinct, so much of the time I just babble randomly about favorite characters and such. I apologize in advance m(_ _)m

Okay, so, basically, this post is a compilation of loot I've gotten in the span of four months (January to April), and I kind of call it my Christmas-Birthday loot too, since I got most of them (or got people to buy/fund them for me) as Christmas and birthday gifts to myself xD

So...without further ado, here's a group pic of everything~ /o/

Kindly excuse the incorrigible mess that is my bed.


Whew, yeah a big bunch of them are doujinshi OuO;; Technically, I've only made my first figure orders now (not including the orders I've placed and claimed for my boyfriend and sister), so at the moment my small collection is mostly doujinshi, plushies, and straps xD

My holy character grail~ I won't even deny it. Ren is the reason I got sucked into the wonders of collecting merch xD It's rare for me to see merch of him in human form (since most of the stuff are of the other boys and Aoba, and he's usually just with Aoba in dog form). The Picktam DMMD set is the first actual merch I bought, and I have no regrets. xD It's so fun to swap and switch them, although I'm having a bit of problem with discoloration on one side of Ren's face part >.<

GIFT plushies~ I saved up good for these two, and aside from a minor hiccup on getting the larger plush, they are awesome QuQ The details are amazing! (although I expected the plush itself to be bigger xD) The plush strap is absolutely adorable, and my sister has had to put up with me cooing and talking to it like a baby (which it is. MY baby) because I can't get over how cute it is.

My Picktam set up close xD I've got them stuck on their second faces because I just love how each one captures certain parts of each character's personality (plus I just love smiling Ren). (On a side note, I do hope Ren gets released in the DMmD lineup GSC appears to be making xD I swear I will sell a liver to get him if ever, because his scale was just a bit too much for a newbie like me QuQ).

And~ DMMD doujins~ It's no secret that smat/Akatsuki Tomato is my fave DMMD doujinka, because their art is so awesome xD I actually got introduced to using proxy services because I was desperate to get their Recollection anthologies + their ukeRen doujin, and it was all downhill from there xD I'm very lucky to snag copies of the first two parts of Borderland too (they made a limited rerelease last March, I think). I thought I wasn't going to be able to get them, until the announcement xD The story is just so awesome (although admittedly I have a limited knowledge of Japanese). As for the uke!Ren anthology, it's hard enough to come across Ren doujins, and I was pining after this the first time I saw it last year, so I was jumping up and down everywhere when I managed to buy it from the circle's Booth shop. Although at the moment they are apparently selling it now by Toranoana and I.... xD

Bottom line is I love uke!Ren. Give me uke!Ren anytime.

Next up, Free! and Kurobasu straps /o/ I got the Petanko Reis from RURITTO (omg I'm sorry I got too embarrassed to introduce myself Q_Q). I've always been amused with the design of Petanko and I'm glad I managed to get some of my fave swimming dork /o/ The Kasamatsu/KiKasa straps and the third Rei were bought from a local shop selling them, and I'm just glad I managed to get the cute keychain of my fave basketball senpai <3 I've got a couple more straps of Kasamatsu-senpai coming, and I hope my merch base of him builds up because I seriously love him <3

Annnnnd~ my KuroBasu doujin lot. I actually have some still incoming, but for now here's the ones with me 8D A lot of Kagami, because he was my first bias in the franchise (and I basically ship him with everyone but mostly with Aomine and Kuroko, and a bit of Kise pfft), so most of my KnB doujin center on him. I recently shifted over to the wonder that is KiKasa though xD

The UZSK dj at the bottom was my first buy, and from C-Queen xD (which kinda surprised me with their shipping fee because I did not know their cap for free shipping and this cost like only 1500 jpy ish). I have a love-hate thing with UZSK's art, because sometimes I find it hot, and sometimes it seems weird to me. Or I'm just bipolar myself idk. Either way, I have a strange fascination with doujin anthologies, so I have no regrets getting this one.

As for Aono's doujins (ITEM #303137 and ITEM #303140) I just got them as trial purchases from Suruga-ya, and I was surprised at how good they were condition-wise (although I got surprised with local shipping too and did not know about the free shipping cap). As for the storyline though, it was a bit wanting. I kinda expected more since afaik Aono is one of the more popular doujinka drawing AoKaga, but owell <3

I was very hesitant to get the very moe-looking one to the far right, since I'm not really for genderbending, but I had snagged the first part of it through a Suruga-ya GO NAOTO-CHAN had hosted. This one ended up being out of stock by the time the orders were placed, but I managed to find Zooya's circle shop by some stroke of luck and ordered it from there xD Well, as expected it's loads of moe, but I didn't expect to like how Zooya drew Midorima. I HAVE DISCOVERED A MIGHTY NEED.

The Kuroko no BioHazard books (the ones with mostly black covers) was a bit of an impulse buy xD I was not supposed to get them, but I got intrigued after seeing sample photos and ended up buying them anyway, which was a great decision because it's funny as heck. Basically it's Resident Evil but instead of a zombie virus it's a virus that makes all the boys want to kiss each other xD It's one huge shipping frenzy lol (still waiting for part three~)

The KiKasa ones are by Neitz, which is a circle I've just begun to fall in love with. Their art is leaning a bit too much in the moe side in my opinion, plus they have these weird issues with drawing necks, but I ended up liking them anyway xD mainly for...well...what yaoi doujin are mostly known for?. I've just begun my hunt for KiKasa stuff, so I might be getting more of their work in the future 83

Last but not the least is my current KnB grail: Open Fire! by Alstroemeria. I didn't really think of it much at first when I ordered it through a local proxy (which ended up fetching me a hefty price for it), since it didn't seem to be selling out fast in Toranoana, and I basically bought it just to try out the doujin buying services of said proxy. When I got it, though, I was pleasantly surprised. I think the heavy price tag was worth it, because it's as thick as one of my textbooks, and is pretty big at a B5 size. Plus the details on the cover are awesome too (there are certain shiny glittery parts that I don't exactly know how to describe xD). They ship Kagami with a lot of other characters, like UZSK, although there was no Kuroko, which was a slight disappointment :( The AoKaga and KiKaga stories were cute (and hot) though <3

Seriously, look how thick it is.

I've also gotten dragged into Haikyuu (OiIwa) hell lately, and I was lucky to find that Neitz did an OiIwa doujin.

And it is AMAZINGLY HOT. kjsadhfkjasdhfsadfhaskjdfhaskfd Itadakicat is my favorite OiIwa artist at the moment, but Neitz is coming up a close second <3 (Unfortunately for me there seems to be more IwaOi that OiIwa in the fandom QuQ.)

http://i.imgur.com/EDQA5zx.jpg

AND SPEAKING OF ITADAKICAT. I bought this collection from Suruga-ya on a whim, since it was only 70 jpy and I went hell why not. The site didn't show how many pages and what size it was, so when I opened my doujin order package I was surprised to see that it was a pretty thick one (I'd expected it to be one of the 20-30 page ones). It's a lot smaller than usual anthologies too, at B6. But I can pretty much call this one of those unexpected holy grails people come across, because I really didn't expect too much of it when I bought it (I'm not even a big fan of the ship---just bought it for Zen, who is my favorite in Nurarihyon). But damn, it's become one of my treasures after I read it xD The art is a little less polished compared to Itadakicat/Nekota Kojirou's more recent works, but I dunno, this volume is just blew me away xD Too bad I couldn't find most of their other Rikuo x Zen works anymore, since this volume basically plunged me into shipping them without warning xD

All of my life's worst (best) decisions stacked up~ xD As of the moment I keep them in these colorful ziploc bags I bought from a local Japanese thrift store franchise. It's nice cuz I can somehow color-code them (blue for Ren/DMMD, red for the Kagami-centric KnB ones, yellow for the KiKasa, and green for OiIwa). I am yet to find a box to actually put them all in though, so at the moment they're hogging some space on my desk (which is small as it is xD)

http://i.imgur.com/sOoBqKv.jpg

And finally, technically not part of the loot, but I have limited space in my room and the only two shelves that my dad managed to squeeze in are already filled with my school readings and random stuff. Big Ren was basically homeless for a good two weeks before I decided to make this one. It's from a bunch of styrofoam taped and stapled together, befor getting stuck to the wall with a hefty amount of sticky tack and some ribbons for good measure. I decided to put on a trail of plastic to keep the straps below it safe too xD And now Big Ren has a throne to judge me from~ <3

Sorry that my post went on for too long ^^; This is my first attempt at a loot post so I apologize if it's too rambly and does not have too much substance or anything @_@ I look forward to writing more (hopefully about figures actually next time *cough*) and thank you for taking the time to read this~ <3

moonlight119 (4 år siden) #2947497I'm not a fan of anthologies but I find reprints tempting XDD Oh! Thank you for telling me about the GIFT plushes~~ But...urgh, why too soon? Why May? щ(ಥДಥщ) I'm broke enough with SuperComi and figure pre-orders so it's more likely that I'll pass.......................(*x_x) Confirmed the issue about payment with Naoto-chan. It seems that I may be able to order a few myself :))
I LOVE reprints xDDDDDDDD especially when I like the circle it comes from, because it saves me time and money from having to hunt down all their old stuff :3 Aside from InnerWorld:Side, technically all of my thick djs are reprints, although I ordered a two-volume AoKaga anthology xD

Also, omg yes, I am near broke and sjdfkjsdhfksdf SupaKomiiiiiiiiiii Lord help me xD Sometimes I am just very thankful that I have sort of rare ships (although askdjhasd there was suddenly a boom in KiKasa like where did all of you doujins come from) because I feel like I would weep especially since there are 3 doujin events this Golden Week xD

And congrats on the plushies~ /o/ (I still feel weirdly hurt Jean wasn't rereleased but well, they have a lot of new releases this time anyway xD plus I'm near broke lol)

raiya-kun (4 år siden) #2946022Yes, thick ones are expensive (both in shipping and in base price) but I honestly don't understand my own preference for anthologies TuT orz I get a weird excitement when getting a particularly thick dj and I just kjhadjfhasdjfsadfk
Oh, btw, if you're aiming for the GIFT plushes, they already announced a rerelease! 8D I just saw from my FB feed yesterday! I actually wanted a Jean (SnK) plush, but unfortunately they're only limiting the SnK line to Levi, Erwin, Hanji, and Mikasa, BUT they're rereleasing the ENTIRE DMMD line so! OuO
(ordering will start from May 15 8D, if I understood the notes on their specific pages right: giftshop.jz.sho...)

Ose_93 (4 år siden) #2945474Oh, that KiKasa strap is so cute~
I totally ship OiIwa, but I've been dragged into AkaFuri (KnB) hell at the moment, so I'll meet you there in a bit. XD
Color coding doujinshi bags is a nice idea! ^^

A FELLOW OIIWA FAN jksadhfaksjdfhkasdf And don't worry I'm all into AkaFuri too xD (although with so many ships in KnB I think I fried my fujoshi brain and can take only one at a time QuQ).

Also YES I SHALL BE WAITING FOR YOU HERE IN OIIWA HELL HEAVEN. xD And the color coding is really more for reminding me about my ships because with so many of them it's so hard to keep track ovo;;

moonlight119 (4 år siden) #2945735Nice collection! I usually stay away from thick doujinshi because shipping them would be expensive so I stick to ordering thin ones with standard number of pages (well, except when the doujinshi come cheap XD). I wish GIFT would re-release those plushies, or at least the plush straps. Would really love to get Clear, Mizuki, and Sei. ;-;

debinoresu (4 år siden) #2944950great loot post! i personally like how much you have to say about everything, its adorable how excited you are! and great job on that diy styrofoam shelf! it looks awesome.

I'm glad you didn't find my endless babbling too much of a nuisance QuQ I really am excited for all of the things I got here, even more so because it's technically my first legitimate loot x3 Also, thank you for what you said about the shelf o/ It's more on the level of school arts and crafts than actual handiwork, but I still feel so oddly proud of myself OuO;;
