My Anime Loot – Figures and Gunpla

So, for the final part of the loot posts, I’ll be covering those coveted pieces of plastic that we call figures. Both of the Gundam Plastic Model (Gunpla) variety, and the regular variety.

The above picture, of the 1/1 scale Gundam statue, was taken in Odaiba in Tokyo, an artificial island connected to the mainland via the Rainbow Bridge, which contains many shopping centres, including what is called the Gundam Front.

So, that’s where I ended up buying some of the Gunpla. What about the figures? Well, most of them were purchased in Akihabara, in Mandarake and other stores, and also a few were acquired in China in a shopping centre that had a floor dedicated to anime-related goods.

My Anime Loot – DVDs, Blu Rays and Music

The BDs and DVDs here aren’t actually ones I bought in Japan, as their video region is not the same that is used over here in the UK, and, well, their prices are quite above an amount I feel comfortable spending with.

I’m not even talking about volume releases, which are more understandable, the price for what looks to be just barebones BD case releases is still extremely high relative to here.

12 Days of Anime – My Anime Loot

Okay, I’ll own up and admit to it: my attempt at 12 Years of Anime this time around has more or less been a flop, with only four total posts out of the designated twelve. However, I thought I would at least put out something appropriate since it is¬†Christmas Day…

Don’t worry, I will definitely continue my travel posts, which will include more detail about Akiba as a location specifically.

As you may know, from my two previous Zael in Japan posts, I was in Tokyo, which also means I was in Akihabara, and therefore, I ended up picking up a whole load of anime merchandise. Since Christmas is the time we open up and enjoy our presents, I thought I would share my budding anime loot collection, which in truth has only been in existence for a few months, starting with the MCM Comic Con back in October.

I hope you enjoy reading about and looking at my merchandise pictures, I’ll be updating over the next few days, as otherwise this would get incredibly long to read in one sitting..
