I bought 6 manga books and 1 triple layered acrylic display case for my trading figures. It was a good buy, I felt then. I also picked up the June issue of Hobby Japan on the way home. On the long bus ride back, it was really cramped but I had a seat so I rested my arms on the giant box and browsed through the magazine.
Upon examination of the funky triple layered case at home, I was horrified to see 3 cracks in the acrylic which weren’t there when I checked it at the store. We all know that acrylic is brittle and cracks easily. We also know that it whitens when stressed. I was just really stupid to have not taken good care of it on the way back, arghhh. I could lie and return it to the store since I’m not totally sure I was the one who cracked it. But my conscience and logical mind tells me that I was the one because of the way the box is designed. If a downward force is applied to the top row, the bottom part of each layer would be forced outward and acrylic doesn’t stretch so it cracks. And yeah I applied quite the pressure on it for a whole hour. Damn.
At least it isn’t take obvious and I taped it up to prevent further damage.

On a lighter note, I bought more manga. And another Samurai Champloo cap for my friend.

Of note is the last one, Shikigami no Shiro. I saw many of its figurines made into 1/8 PVCs by GSC so I concluded it must be good. I wonder what it’s about.
