I came across Aural Vampire by while checking out more K-Pop bands, I had never heard Asian electro goth before and my usual music tastes take me quite far away from that music spectrum, but quite frankly after hearing Aural Vampire It’s growing on me! Its eerie however how the singer looks like the perfect candidate for a Princess Ressurection live action movie haha

This track is called “Freeeze”, I would recommend people looking up “Darkwave surfer” also, it’s a great track in my opinion. Ah yes and on the plus side, I just check one of my lost packages: Mirai dakimakura cover (Danny Choo’s mascot) and it is in the warehouse awaiting charges. While getting charges is never a nice thing, the fact that it is in the country and not lost in volcanic ash is reassuring, onwards with the Anime merchandise!

Ah well, yet more cd’s to track down T_T enjoy the track.

January Round UpSo January is over and I am still blogging about my Anime exploits! a good start to the year I would say 😛 It has been really nice meeting more members of the collecting community and I would especially like to thank Lylibellule and Leonia for their continued interest and posts, it’s always nice to read feedback and comments from fellow collectors 🙂

As a quick summary. This month had lots of major arrivals, some were pre-orders but most were post release purchases. Chua Churam and Menace (Megahouse version) from Queen’s Blade are the latest to, arriving last week with photos for Chua Churam complete and are awaiting resizing before I post them up (mid-week I hope).

Around the Easter peiod last year I finally implemented plans to create a more suitable display for my Anime figures. I picked up too of Ikea’s Detolf cabinets and they have been a great asset to my collecting experience. However even from the day that I got them I knew that eventually I would like the cabinets to stand out during night. I have done a fair amount of research and most people state that it’s the unsightly wires vs falling puck lights (gum on double-sided tape wearing out). After much deliberation I opted to try the diode strips from Ikea, not the cheapest of items but hey if it works at least I can play with multi colour lighting.

At £49.99 these are not a cheap experiment so I really hope this goes well..and if it goes well I will need to budget to get more of them @_@

So the cabinets are full and a plan for lights is in place, there are other issues I have with the Detolf cabinets but as the year progresses I am sure I will work out and share my ways of improving the Detolf cabinet for Anime collectors.

To complete this weeks package arrivals, my Yagyu Jubei Dakimakura has cleared and will arrive at my house today so thats another review I can plan for the end of the month (although the handling charges are obscene!). So plenty of Anime related things to do and improvements to the blog, a good start to the year!

In yet another show of complete dis-regard for work computing policies, I have figure related goodness to share! Yesterday my Black Rock Shooter arrived (yay!) and it is rather lovely, so much so that I went ahead and put my pre-order in for the Sword version scheduled for April.

I have to say I really like the little addons provided with BRS (Gun), the little flamey eye and chain made for many minutes of playful fiddling.

Black Rock Shooter 2 Now with more added sword!

Pre-order: Playasia.com (see affiliates)

release date: Apr 2010

Price: $89.90 (USD)

Also some excellent news in the form of many new things coming my way! My order for Risty and Yagyu Jubei have finally been shipped and fingers crossed will arrive safely by mid next week, I have to say this is a big relief for me and has made my week a little less stressful. Also, my Yagyu Jubei Dakimakura is being shipped and should arrive around the same time, still don’t have a pillow and I have no idea how my closest are going to respond…

Photos of January’s haul will go up at the end of the month, this weekend I am braving the bad weather to look for more lighting solutions and extra things to spice up the photography (no more plain backgrounds in 2010 please!).

Experiment on behalf as I tap away my wordress iPhone app. Please forgive me if it looks aweful!

Firstly. Big thank you to everyone who have continued reading Distudios, 2009 was a odd year as this blog went silent for the better half of 4 months.

So what’s the plan for 2010? More pictures for starters! It’s time to put some of he equipment to good use and get more of the collection photographed and up on the galleries! Expect more reviews on random things such as books, cd, hopefully some convention coverage? and even my first dakimakura… Yes scary territory! And of course the usual pics and reviews of my personal purchase 🙂

See you all in 2010!

P.s ok this app is actually quite good who knows what random things will get posted in 2010!
