Riuva Adjorns for a Fancy-Dress Party

No anime-related post today, as I am preparing for tonight’s fancy-dress Dinner and Dance party @ the Zoo. This is an annual affair with really awesome food. I shan’t go into details about what the party is for but traditionally, every year, there’s a whole lamb on a spit and this is the best lamb I’ve ever eaten. The theme this year is "Superheroes" and of course that includes villains.

Since Mr Lawson himself was talking about Canvas 2 and professing his love for the Hagino Kana, I might as well put out a review of her figurine.

Hagino is the mandatory loli character in Canvas 2 and she’s also a novelist who specialises in lovey shit. We all know where this leads to. "Teacher, can you show me what love is?" or "Teacher I need real-life experience."

Final Fantasy fanboys can rejoice, for Square Enix has twisted the nipple harder for the good of us all. For the slow, I mean "milk".

As we all know, SE ties up with Kotobukiya to produce most of their merchandise. So far, we have had the famed Playarts series, and the various Monster/Summon/Guardian Force series. There’s also the FF Weapons series coming up. The Master Creature set I mentioned, which has summons from the various Final Fantasies, really suck.

While I’ve not heard of any official reports about the third season of everyone’s favourite school comedy, the ending text of episode 26 explicitly says, "Thank you for watching School Rumble, we will be continuing!" or something to that effect. Add to that the effective undoing of all the plot deviations of the anime from the manga and the final part of the last episode, I am pretty sure SR will have a third season.


The only time I sold a figure, it turns out that I hadn’t fully explored it at all!! OMG OMG OMG NOOOOOO!!

Ryukawa are you reading this? If you haven’t sold it yet, please do try to take a few pictures of the chests for us here.
