It's been years since I've bought anime or game figures... but man, do I REALLY want this Senjou no Valkyria Alicia figure!

Even better than the figure itself is this nifty nugget of knowledge I gleaned from the descriptive text for this item at National Console Support:

"Alicia's in a running gallop and

appears to be heading for outright war with a weapon on hand. She also wears a determined demeanor on her face. That usually means war."

Thanks for the heads up!

I've got a song in my head. Surprisingly, it's an Utada Hikaru song. Even more surprisingly, it's a children's song.

Also... if you really want to say it in French, you'd say: Je suis un ours!

Bangai-O Spirits is an: awesome game. Why aren't you playing it right now? What? You're waiting for a deal? Seems like now is the time to get it, then...

Fry's ads throughout California (and possibly elsewhere) and the Fry's website show that Bangai-O Spirits for Nintendo DS is now $24.99 USD rather than the usual $30. Which is great if you haven't gotten the game.

I already have the game, which means I'm going to go to Fry's and try to get back my $5 dollars...

For a long time, people have been talking about the inevitable convergence of still photos and videos in journalism. I wonder what cosplay photographers (ostensibly journalists as they are treated as such at various anime conventions) think of this. Will they trade in their big Nikon and Canon DSLRs to get RED Scarlets? Other places have dealt with this topic many times, so I'm just going to leave you guys with something I grabbed at Otakon 2008 as a quick experiment...

Want the entire Card Captor Sakura series on DVD? Official US Pioneer/Geneon release? Want to spend between $450 and $800 USD on the whole thing from some dude on ebay?

Well, the closest thing to a deal I've found is from kmart. It doesn't show up in google shopping searches but a quick search on kmart.com reveals that they have the Clow Book DVD box set (the first half of the series) for $100 USD. Not bad. Now if only the Sakura Book set that complements it wasn't so impossible to get...

I really should have bought the whole series 2 years ago, back when Right Stuf was selling it for just under $100 USD thanks to Geneon's expiring license...
