I had this post all written up, and then I went and got ill and forgot about it!
A new figure arrived from Amazon this weekend – the newly-released Nendoroid Ryougi Shiki, the protagonist from Type Moon’s Kara No Kyoukai series. She’s one of my favourite anime characters (I’m weak to the Type Moon girls), and I really love the movies, so Nendoroid Ryougi was a must-have for me, espeically given how awkward some of the other figures of her are to get hold of (like a certain PVC from GSC which is virtually impossible to find for under 10,000 yen now).

I made my second trip to Akihabara today, as I’m fortunate enough to have no classes on a Friday, and it will be my last trip there for a while because I spent an awful lot of money today!
As a follow-up to my previous post about pottery in Kasama, I have another post, this time with pictures from Mito, Yuki and a different part of Kasama. It was the second and final trip I made as part of one of the modules I took at Tsukuba, which I picked on a whim but it turned out to be pretty interesting and a lot of fun.
First up was another museum, this time in Mito. Rather than art this time, the museum contained various old artifacts from different periods in Japanese history. This was rather more to my taste than the ceramics museum I visited in Kasama, as I’m rather fond of history, the older the better and some of the pieces in the museum were pretty old. No photographs allowed inside as with the previous museum, which is a shame because they had some interesting things there, including a replica of the Seven Branched Sword (七支刀, shichishitou), which fans of the Phoenix Wright games might well be familiar with as in made a cameo in the third game.
Next to the museum, and pictured above, was an old school building. According to my teacher it’s one of the oldest in the prefecture. I don’t think the original building is being used any more, but it was interesting to look at.
