AUG - OCT 2021 LOOT

I went absolutely batshit crazy these past few months, oh my lord. I just had to expand my Jujutsu Kaisen collection since I love it so much! I bought more stuff than I normally would, but I'm pretty happy and I'm really enjoying everything since they're still pretty concentrated in terms of series/themes.

Without further ado, let's get started~

FIGURES
OVERVIEW

These are not all the boxes OTL I didn't include the boxes for the mini Jujutsu Kaisen figures and the Natsume Yuujinchou prize figures since they've all been folded up or discarded.

I definitely went overboard, but all for the sake of Jujutsu Kaisen, and I don't regret it one bit. :D

NENDOS/CHIBI

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51701183617_005ebc31bb_z.jpg

Of course, new additions to the Touken Ranbu lineup~ I have almost all of the nendoroids, only 6 more to go! Unfortunately, it seems like they rarely pop up on AmiAmi preowned these days (although I haven't been actively looking in the past few months since I was focused on Jujutsu Kaisen/Danmei stuff), but I do make it a point to snag up whoever's available~

They finally re-released Jiji, and I finally got him. I've been wanting him since 2017 ToT

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51701223717_be0f5eda43_z.jpg
As I've mentioned, these past 3 months were mostly focused on ordering/pre-ordering the rest of the Jujutsu Kaisen cast (at least the ones I like), so I scrambled to buy their nendoroids (and scales) that were still available since they were in pretty high demand in the aftermarket. I managed to snag Nobara and Yuuji, but not Megumi unfortunately. GSC is taking so long to re-release him; I hope it happens! ToT

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51702867310_6cf783d87f_z.jpg
THIS IS THE INFAMOUS 9KG NENDOROID LMAO (for reference, please read my previous article on Customs Woes). I really hope I'd never have to repeat that fiasco. It made this particular nendo memorable though, so he's definitely a lot more precious now. X'D

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51702655604_366f95d310_z.jpg
I paid way too much for this nendoroid in the aftermarket, but he is so worth it ToT I just love Wei Wuxian so much (he's my 2nd most favorite character of all-time, only next to Homura) and his Yiling Laozu form is my favorite, so I had to snag him when I saw him for a fairly decent price (or as decent as he gets, honestly) on Mercari JP. I think this is the first time I willingly paid over $100 for a nendoroid. But the important thing is that he's home. ToT Once my other merch and his scale arrives, I'll dedicate a small part of my Danmei shrine to just his Yiling Laozu form.

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51702262983_e1755f6d52_z.jpg
I also bought Nanamin (ITEM #1124745), but he is currently in the office so he couldn't be included in this adorable picture. <3 All of these babies are coming with me to the office so they can keep me company... although anyone who enters will have a nice view of their butts. X'D

I also bought the ITEM #1108085 Gojo LookUp Figure, but he is also chilling on my office desk.

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51654276664_d86f1ec84b_z.jpg
Here they are in a picture that I put up previously, when I shared what my work desk looks like~

SCALES

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51701182992_8c54211bef_z.jpg
I don't normally collect scales, but I fell in love with Jujutsu Kaisen so hard that I decided that I wanted to have a shrine of them. And so I bought the scales that I liked the most - which turned out to be the Kotobukiya set. I unfortunately did not like that Gojou's masked face wasn't the default for the Koto one, so I didn't end up ordering him. I'm waiting for a Gojou figure that really ticks all of my preferences and that won't break the bank like the FuRyu one which I ended up canceling.

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51701182937_065a8529c8_z.jpg
Megumi is my favorite of the three (in terms of how the figure looks; ranking-wise, they're all pretty equal in my eyes). The way his Divine Dog is sculpted is just awesome. <3

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51702810839_431d7ebc58_z.jpg
And here is the queen herself! I absolutely love her confident pose.

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51704433705_2acee8b5d2_c.jpg
They look so good posed together!

PRIZE/PUP

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51701183477_1fd2b96f50_z.jpg
I'm obsessed with the fairytale Miku line! The outfits are just so, so cute <3 I have Red Riding Hood Miku on my desk in a field of giant sunflowers. X'D

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51701982196_b2e6ff9f07_z.jpg
Nanamin is my most favorite JJK character so far, for the sole reason that he is voiced by Tsuda Kenjirou, who does a phenomenal job with him. <3 I hope he gets a proper scale one day, and that his nendoroid is revealed soon!

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51701182767_c94a31e386_z.jpg
I wanted to start building my Natsume Yuujinchou shrine, so I bought the figures I've been really wanting for a LONG time (except for the scale, which remains to be one of my unattainable grails). This one, I wanted him since before he was released. I found him for a very reasonable price on Surugaya; except, to get him shipped to me would be more than 10k because of the size of his box. My proxy shipped him only in his blister (they also cut the blister to size so that he can fit in a smaller box, it was ingenious of them, really) together with some others, and it shaved off around 4k in shipping :D

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51702655704_7745ec2648_z.jpg
These two were the other figures in the box with him. I have also been wanting this pair since like... I don't know, 2014? 2015? X'D I honestly don't know why I never bought them. But I finally did, and I couldn't be happier since TanuNatsu is also my OTP <3 Although I want to try crafting a different base for them since I want them to stand closer to each other, like they're on a summer festival date. I also want Nyanko-sensei to touch the squid that Natsume is holding.

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51702868155_d36be8c452_z.jpg
I have no idea who this character is or what franchise he is from, but I was attracted to him from the first time I saw his design so I eventually caved and pre-ordered him. Thankfully a preorder window opened and I was able to snag him!

DANMEI MERCH
This is the major part of my loot and what I pretty much spent my birthday money on. :'D I fell in love, HARD, with danmei- specifically wuxia/xianxia settings, and even more specifically, Mo Xiang Tong Xiu's works.

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51701979216_6d6c1bcdd8_z.jpg
I bought almost every HuaLian shikishi that AmiAmi had for pre-order - within reason, of course. I chose the designs I liked the most. I ended up putting the donghua style shikishi on my Danmei shrine, and I'll put the manhwa style ones up on my door.

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51584198640_34439c3626.jpg

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51583513333_b0c9d0195a.jpg

I also bought these HuaLian posters, but as I haven't set them up on my wall yet, I'll just put up the official pics from AmiAmi here.

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51702651194_8fc21e7878_z.jpg
These are so adorable ToT They're sitting on solid magnet stands so they stay seated even when they're not leaning against anything! I love that attention to detail.

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51702258498_13c1f5a7e5_z.jpg
This is one of the most iconic HuaLian scenes, so of course I HAD to have something that represented it. This is actually a Vietnam exclusive acrylic stand that I managed to find on Mercari JP (all of my danmei merch are from there). And yes, I HAD to be extra when taking pics of these acrylic stands - I wanted to showcase them in their full glory because they're absolutely beautiful pieces of art.

More HuaLian acrylic stands:

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51702258363_aab5d273fb_z.jpg

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51702862780_61a1141f28_z.jpg


These acrylic stands of Xie Lian and Hua Cheng are tall and heavy.

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51702862570_31d5b65be1_z.jpg

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51701976116_e9cc42a770_z.jpg

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51701175907_27e48cb342_z.jpg

Including the background, they're as tall as 1/8 scales! Here's Hua Cheng beside Masato for reference. They're not as tall/big as the AshEiji ones I reviewed before, but they're pretty tall - and heavy as well!

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51701277072_ec2d49c93c_z.jpg
One of the sellers I bought from also gave me some freebies! <3 It was so awesome of them ;v; and they're very nice freebies too. Usually freebies would be something random that the seller wants to offload somehow, but this seller gave me cute things related to TGCF, and I really appreciate that!

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51701179647_3c81f07da3_z.jpg
This isn't donghua related, but still within the danmei category (specifically dangai) - a special gift box set from the Chinese drama Word of Honor (Shan He Ling), based from Priest's novel Faraway Wanderers (Tian Ya Ke). I loved it so much that I had to have merch from it! I'm now working on getting the photobook, which I hope to one day find for a reasonable price ToT

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51701179172_cb3f658279_z.jpg
Here's the box upon opening, with a gorgeous cutout of Zhou Zishu (right - played by Zhang Zhehan) and Wen Kexing (left - played by Gong Jun). This was the scene where they pretty much declared they were each other's soulmate kgskdlgsg

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51701978051_10e7334a09_z.jpg
Here's what's inside the box. It includes a pair acrylic stand in chibi form, Wen Kexing's fan, the hairpin, some bookmarks, stickers, postcards, and the money pouches they used in the drama.

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51702651639_d273909090_z.jpg

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51701977566_60ff5a4a43_z.jpg

Of course, I bought this box mainly for the fan and the hairpin (ironically, both of which do not exist in the novel, lmao - but this is the one time I actually prefer the drama over the novel). I have to hunt down a fan stand so I can display the fan properly, though.

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51702660702_01911775a4_z.jpg
Here's how the danmei shrine is looking so far! I originally intended for it to be purely TGCF, but I'm pretty much including the Yiling Laozu nendo and the WoH acrylic stand there for now since I haven't set up a space for them yet. Once I find somewhere to put them (I might need to purchase another wall shelf, tbh) and all the other MDZS stuff come in, I'll set up separate shrines for them as well. I'll also do an update of all my shrines when I've made significant progress on them. (If you're curious, you can view my previous article on my WIP shrines here.)

Yes, I had to move the Hitorijime shrine somewhere else ToT Sacrifices must be made.

MERCH

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51702654849_c20f4dc6b1_z.jpg

Aside from the mini nesoberi plushes, this picture actually also includes mini trading figures, but I just put them here because I didn't want to take them out of my display, which was on my TV stand. They're adorable and they make me so happy whenever I see them ToT

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51701181737_0329b7e89c_z.jpg
Touken Ranbu desk mat! I actually regret not buying the black one now, that one could have been nice for the office. ToT This is on my desk at home.

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51701180992_720504a432_z.jpg
I got addicted to collecting plushes because they're so cute! The nesoberi ones are part of my JJK shrine, and Mutsu is in my mini Mutsu shrine. <3

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51701979921_b6b0beedea_z.jpg
Unopened acrylic stands. I'm planning to set up a "music" section in my room somewhere, and these Saimon stands are going to be part of it. But there's no space currently. The Megumi and Inumaki ones are for my work desk, so I haven't opened them yet. I also bought ITEM #1112148 (Nobara) and ITEM #1112146 (Yuuji), but I wasn't able to take a picture of them since they're already chilling at work.

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51701979446_7ab8047a8f_z.jpg
Displayed acrylic stands. X'D Kaito is chilling with Yurucamp Rin on my home desk, and Natsume is going to be part of the Natsume Yuujinchou shrine.

Akemi Homura-themed pocket watch for my Homura shrine.

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51538398268_1853957f86_z.jpg
It's a bit difficult to see, but this is a replica of the actual Mutsunokami Yoshiyuki sword, which serves as the centerpiece of my mini Mutsu shrine.

MANGA

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51701983001_5da46d87e9_z.jpg

I didn't bother dividing them into genres this time because there isn't really anything notable about what I bought these past 3 months. Usually just individual volumes of series I'm already collecting/have shown previously.

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51702868805_f5b76e562c_z.jpg
Here's a closer look at the Japanese language ones. I collect these to support the author of my favorite BL manga that I think would never/have a low chance of ever getting translated. Although at the time of writing this, the Restart series was licensed (which I will also order, of course). <3 I don't mind owning both the JP and English copies, if this means supporting my favorite authors so they can continue making manga I love!

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51701973441_b273756a61_z.jpg
Funny story about this little memo pad - I am a frequent customer, dare I say VIP customer (they know my phone number by heart - they call me pretty much every other week when I need to pick up my manga lmao), of our local Kinokuniya since it opened in 2018; and I'm sure you all know just how much manga I buy from there. The manager pretty much gave me this notepad that's exclusive to their management staff only. :'D So am I an honorary manager of Kinokuniya now? X'D They sell these same notepads in the bookstore, but without the logo on it. I just thought it was a cute gesture.

MISCELLANEOUS

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51701981226_18ee4e6547_z.jpg

I got yet another new display cabinet - this time, for my TV! I pretty much put manga and artbooks behind those closed doors. I do have some figures in there and I'm kind of sad I can't see them, but I like the way the white doors looked in my room instead of open shelves so I opted for them. I just open up the cabinets every once in a while to admire the figures I do have in there. X'D

I plan on having the Natsume Yuujinchou shrine in the bottommost cabinet right underneath the open Jujutsu Kaisen shrine, as kind of like a forest tucked away in a secret corner. We'll see how it goes once I'm done with it.

GRAND TOTAL: 30 Figures* / 20 Manga / Lots of merch
*I counted the trading figures and mini JJK figures individually.

I certainly went overboard in these past 3 months, buying more than I did in my previous loot which covered 6 months. ToT This is certainly not going to be a frequent thing though, considering the fact that I am still absolutely terrified to ship with DHL because of my previous experience with customs, as well as the price increase for DHL shipping OTL

My next loot post will probably be a long time coming, since I don't know when EMS will come back here and when they can be shipped... Either way, hope to see you next time~!

broken-Toybox4 dager siden#104012967It's fine, I often take longer to reply as well. x3
I mean, they're not that much different than JP proxies so the reluctance some collectors here display often baffles me a bit. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
He sure isn't worth it and I'm glad you think so, but imagine all the money you could've saved/spent on other merchies.
Well, I got the photobook off taobao as well, I only get mxtx merch somewhere else when it's not available there (novel version from other countries, jp audio drama, exclusives from other platforms etc.). By now I even moved some of my regular figure purchases there because superbuy offers shipping methods where I can pay VAT upfront (which most jp shops don't... living in the EU is so great... *cough*). It was roughly $35 same as the box.


I'm looking into superbuy now - they really do make it easy to buy from taobao! Do you recommend any particular sellers/shops for MXTX/WoH stuff on there? Just so I can ensure I'm not like... going to accidentally buy bootlegs or something.

They make it super easy to buy too - I wish I knew about this before I went on a shopping spree on Mercari JP OTL but I still don't regret it since I got a lot of the stuff I really wanted ToT I just wish I got it for cheaper. But oh my god, they don't charge any fees? Just the item fee and shipping fee? Or am I missing something here?

(Oh also, if you happen to have Discord and won't mind talking on there, do let me know if you'd like to chat :D about danmei and other stuff :'D)

gwendal738-24 dager siden#104010517Ahhhh, thank you!!! I just realized that somehow I missed the notification for your reply in our conversation a week or two ago, so I'm sorry for not replying to that! ToT
Damn, I think I would really need to learn how to use Taobao and Chinese proxies then ToT I'm not too mad because I was prepared and ready to pay that much and I think he is absolutely worth it, but if I could get him for cheaper of course I wouldn't complain... I'm glad you ended up loving Word of Honor though! Where did you buy the photobook? Again, since I only know how to use Japanese proxies I've been buying my danmei merch from Mercari JP, and it's insanely overpriced OTL I'd love to get my hands on that photobook since I absolutely love the actors TvT

I really love your danmei shrine, looks really awesome with the flowers!! (´♡‿♡`)
I also ordered the SHL box yesterday (together with the photobook) and your pics make me really excited for it (yes I followed your rec and got hooked pretty fast.
It pains me a little to see that you paid so much for the YLLZ Nendo tho, pretty sure I’ve seen him around for retail in Tencent’s tb store still when I preordered the scale figure. :<

mogukaiju6 dager siden#103932137That Gauma PUP! I felt the same way when I saw him at a store here, I don't really like mecha so I don't know if I'd ever get to watching SSSS but he just looks so cool I always feel that urge to get him anyways
Get him! He is so cheap, and so worth it. I love him a lot even if I don't have any desire to look into the anime he's from, since like you I don't watch mecha either :D

figuresuki6 dager siden#103932618Interesting haul and some nice looking figures there
My wife has been reading way of the house husband which she has been enjoying, their is an anime version I think but that is only on netflix here. We are up to volume 8 on that as Japanese language version, will need to start looking to see when the next volume is out.

Thank you! And yes, The Way of the Househusband is a hilarious manga. I love it so much. X'D

setokaibaswife6 dager siden#103936542Very nice haul and your office desk looks so comfy! I really love your taste in the items that you pick out. The Danmei merch is just wow, so beautiful!
Oh my gosh, thank you so much for your kind words!!! <3 <3 <3

Kuroi_Hoshi6 dager siden#103938013The Koto scales turned out better than I expected, I wonder if we'll ever get a Gojo that will not cleave people so much though XD. Hope Nanamin will get one too at some point, he deserves it.
The HuaLian acrylic stands are so gorgeous and the plushies are super cute! The shikishi are also really beautiful. Your Danmei shrine is looking great too, the flowers really complement the merch and gives it a pleasant vibe. I'm really curious to see how your "music" section will turn out and it's totally not because you mentioned Blst in your previous shrines article haha.
Also, you should have put the guns with Kuzuha, just for the memories.

Ahhh, thank you so much! <3 I'm actually planning to add some white flowers too, just to represent Xie Lian (and Lan Wangji, eventually, if I ever decide to combine the TGCF and MDZS shrines) and also to balance out the redness. X'D And yes, I'll definitely share when I set up my music shrine! I just need to purchase another wall shelf, probably. Otherwise there's nowhere else to set them up ToT

Also omg, Kuzuha and his guns X'DDDDD Certainly the most memorable thing ever!
